Does the g-code import feature need to be downloaded or is it just there to use? I am just getting started with the x-carve and a bit overwhelmed with the learning curve. I have Vcarve Pro and hope to get to making chips this week.
I draw in Illustrator, export .PDF under VCarve Pro, exports in G-Code (special format easel) and I plant under Easel. It works fine.
Easel, do me for sending the G-Code.
V-Carve Pro, do me for export to G-Code (Easel)
Maybe one day, Illustrator can export and send the G-code
I see why … since your spec doesn’t have G2 as a supported command. One of my vectors on the project I created using the Aspire circle tool and I though that might be it, since G2 seems to be related to drawing an arc, but when I removed it and tried to reimport, it didn’t work.
(Edit: Yes, I saw this comment “Only linear movements are allowed (arcs must be linearized).” in the specs. Any ideas on how to linearize it in Aspire)
