Thanks to Will Adams who mostly lurks here but posts a lot on another forum!
From the site;
"This panel arose from a need to reduce the number of steps involved in generating g-code for machines that I create to reproduce drawings made on my computer using various techniques. All of the drawings get the finishing touches in Adobe Illustrator, but unfortunately, there was no way to export g-code from Illustrator. I always had to go through the added step of opening a program called Inkscape with the sole purpose of generating the g-code which my machines understand.
This solution not only solves my problem, but could help many other people as well. I hope that you find this tool as useful as I do."
