I'm building cad/cam application in vb,it will import dxf drawings and also draw lines-circles-freehand,etc.What maths and algorithms are involved to translate the drawings to motion, step and direction signals?
Phil, Still too many interests, too many projects, and not enough time!!!!!!!!
Vist my websites - http://pminmo.com & http://millpcbs.com
I would like to bypass the Gcode,what I need is an algorithm to translate the drawings-graphics to direct step/dir sequence pulses.
well,even if i use G-code,I will still have to interpret the g-code commands to steps/dir,so i was thinking of doing that directly from dxf.how a circle is translated to steps/dir?
