Re: Inkpad or Idraw for Ipad? Any CAM for Ipad?

http://jscut.org almost works on iPad. The big issue right now is the iPad's hatred of files. If you store an SVG file on Dropbox you can open it in jscut and generate GCODE from it. I'm still searching for a way for iPad to be able to save the generated GCODE. Apple announced the next version of i...

I like this idea and just added "Open SVG From Dropbox". Unfortunately their Drop-ins Saver API doesn't work with browser-generated data and their Core API requires an https oath receiver.

Re: New in-browser CAM: jscut

Nice ! Thanks! I'm interested about how do the cut preview work ? Do you calculate the new geometry ? Does it use some shader ? I render it in two passes: Rasterize path. The GPU runs a pair of shaders to convert the path to a 1024x1024 height map. The shaders throw out the portion of the path that...

There is now; I just added Direction to Selected Operation.

Re: New in-browser CAM: jscut

A 2.5D CAM needs a 3D cut preview, so I added one! A demo with already-produced gcode is at http://jscut.org/RenderPath.html. The live version at http://jscut.org now includes the preview built in. The GCODE preview uses WebGL.

Re: New in-browser CAM: jscut

I'm using a polygon library (http://sourceforge.net/projects/jsclipper/) to do the boolean operations and the offsetting. If there's a similar library that does the same to curved paths then I might switch.

New in-browser CAM: jscut

I got frustrated with MakerCam dragging things around when I click, so I thought I'd try rolling my own CAM in JavaScript. It's very alpha (I started about a week ago), but I've already got it cutting on a Shapeoko at my local makerspace: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mi1A-HyAX0I It's GPL and it's...
