nomoreinches takes output recieved from pcb2gcode, parses it, and outputs a file ready for sending to a grbl cnc controller.
The output will be in millimetres (A measurement system used in some “lesser” countries of the world…)
AND the minimum X and Y coordinates will be re-zeroed – something which can be extremely useful :)
Also, if you have a better name for this program, send me an email!
timkrins at the google dot the com
to compile, run
gcc mm.c -o nomoreinches
and to use the application, run
nomoreinches [input gcode file]
Otherwise, use the python version.
python nomore.py [input gcode file]
It will look for the default “front.ngc” unless you specify another.
It will generate a new file called convert-to-mm.ngc
Load this new file into your favorite serial command sender, and away you go :)
