My name is Celso, I'm from Brazil.
Well, I'm up to lauch version 0.0.20 of OpenCAM
OpenCAM is an OpenSource utility where you can configure you machines and then export ps,ai,eps,svg files to it.
The configurations are based on ASCII files with a high level and understandable language, that has almost all needed functions to CNC.
In the interface you can drag the file inside the machine's space and positioning it wherever you want, rotate it, mirror it, tile it and move it by offset values.
You can control de use of you material seeing the percentage of it's use (area used / usefull area)
Related to the machines, there are a lot of options, in the next post there is an example of a configuration file for a Lasercomb HSP plotter (uses hpgl language)
It will be released ONLY to Linux, because there are a lot of options of CAM to the comercial operating systems ^_^
The linux OS has so many features that we can even link the program as a Printer, so you can use ANY design program that works with pipening (almost all of' em )
That means that if you use OpenCAM as a printer, you can click print in your program (inkscape for example) and the output is directed to supercam automatically!
I'm looking for alfa testers.
If there is anyone interested, answer to this post.
Oh, see some screenshots of OpenCAM!
Drawing in Inkscape
Printing linked to OpenCAM
Rotating and Tilling baby Yeah!
After the output file is writen, you can see wich part of the material was used
