Python SVG to G-Code Converter

A fast svg to gcode compiler forked from vishpat/svg2gcode.

This library takes an svg file location/my_file.svg and outputs the gcode conversion to a folder in the same directory location/gcode_output/my_file.gcode.

The file config.py contains the configurations for the conversion (printer bed size etc).

Installation

Simply clone this repo.

git clone https://github.com/pjpscriv/py-svg2gcode.git

Usage

As a Python module

To import it into your existing python project:

import py-svg2gcode

or

import generate_gcode from py-scvg2gcode

As a Python Command

python svg2gcode.py

With Bash Script (Recommended)

You can also use the RUNME script to convert files.

This method is useful for debugging as it gives you extra information.

./RUNME my_svg_file.svg

Details

The compiler is based on the eggbot project and it basically converts all of the SVG shapes into bezier curves. The bezier curves are then recursively sub divided until desired smoothness is achieved. The sub curves are then approximated as lines which are then converted into g-code.
