Hi,

I I wondered if it would be possible to write a simple rose engine entirely as a g code program that would run directly on emc. So I gave it a go and the resultant code + documentation can be found on my blog.

Of course there is no user interface but emc's pre-plot will show the cutter path.

The basic functionality is
1) Two spindles each holding up to 20 rosettes. Rosettes on a spindle can be blended together.
2) Seven types of rosette
3) A geometric chuck with up to 20 stages where each stage is defined by a rosette.

I would welcome any feedback, notification of bugs etc.

Hi,
Just to mention that the URL of my site has changed to otinexperiences.co.uk/blog look there and select software then follow the g code programs link and select the last program. Alternatively go to www.otinexperiences.co.uk/blog/software/...se-engine-simulator/ directly.

thanks
Alan
