G-Code scaling program, mm to Inches and back
« on: April 08, 2007, 07:56:04 PM »
Hi All,

here is a small .exe program for converting G-Code from mm to Inches and Inches to mm, it will also scale to any size you require, with in reason.

The program needs no installing, just double click to run it.

Click 'input file' to select the source file

Click 'output file' and enter a new file name, you can't read and write to the same file name.

Select conversion options.

Click convert.

That's all there is to it.

Try it and see if it works for you.

There is a later version of this program higher within this thread that has no limit to the number of lines of g-code it will convert, this version has a line limit of 32000.


Link to Later version :- http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,2893.msg39920.html#msg39920
Regards

Graham.

Hats off to Graham for such a nice contribution. Some of you folks will find this very useful if your code generating is limited to Imperial or metric. Men like Graham are one of the main reasons this forum is so nice.

Thanks Graham
