THLaser Inkscape Plugin ----------------------- This program is an Inkscape extension for exporting a set of paths as gcode script. It is primarily used by members to the think|haus hacker space (thinkhaus.org) for use with their laser cutter. As such it is customized to suit our needs and so may not be your best choice if you are looking for a general purpose Inkscape to gcode script. This script is a fork of Gcodetools v1.2 written by Nick Drobchenko and is released under the same license (GPL v2). Installation ------------ Copy the files thlaser.py and thlaser.inx into your Inkscape extensions folder. Fire up inkscape and you will find the plugin under Extensions -> Export -> THLaser GCode Export. Keyboard Shortcut ----------------- You may find it handy to assign the extension to a keyboard shortcut. Include something like the following line to your inkscape keys preferences file (this will bind the plugin to Ctrl+\): <bind key="backslash" modifiers="Ctrl" action="org.thinkhaus.filter.thlaser" display="true"/> You can find your keyboard preferences file: * On Linux: ~/.config/inkscape/keys/default.xml * Windows: %UserProfile%\Application Data\Inkscape\keys\default.xml If that file doesn't exist, create it and include the following: <?xml version="1.0"?> <keys name="My Keys"> <bind key="backslash" modifiers="Ctrl" action="org.thinkhaus.filter.thlaser" display="true"/> </keys>
