Re: output cnc code
what cnc machine ?
How many rotation angles ?
What's your block size you're cutting from and how is the block attached to the cnc ?
What cutters are you using ?
What precision is desired ?
What material is being cut ? What are the desired/allowed cutting speeds ? What cutting depths are allowed per pass for 'rough' and 'fine' ?
You're missing a ton of information to even begin on this...
You'll basically have to read through the API Manual for the specific CNC machine to make your own drivers/converters.
