BACKPLOTTING - CONVERT G CODE TO DXF
« on: July 13, 2008, 09:11:29 PM »
Have you ever wanted to convert G code back to a dxf file easily?

There is a slick free program you can download from CNC ZONE archives . I fooled around with a few files and it worked well.
One thing I did with the text file of the code was to remove some of the starting g codes for the lathe or mill and remove sub-routines
where your only cutting deeper.

Here is the link:

If you use Autocadd you may want to check out this site for backplotting G code directly into Autocadd.
I have not tried any of them.

If you know of something for "free" which works, please post.

@nic what kind of vinyl cutter do you have? Are you happy with it?

Sorry for being off topic.

I'm in the market for a vinyl cutter and I sure could use some help. Where did you get started? Because there are a number to choose from. At the moment I don't want to shell out a lot of money so I was looking at desktop vinyl cutters. I've got tired of all the hype reviews that were on the net. And actually managed to find one that seems legit. On this web-page I've found a review that was critical. It actually showed the flaws of each machines. What do you think which one would be better.

Any help is appreciated
