As shown on many of my videos, I cobbled together a CNC machine recently.  While learning to use it I also wanted to be able to import g-code from regular digital pictures and do cuttings on wood and other materials.  I'm always looking for affordable options and I came across some software called Simple Art (by SimpleCNC) that will take any picture and convert it to g-code.  

This video is of my first try at this.  I'll get better at it.  My settings here can all be improved but I wanted to share the first try at this.  I think it's pretty cool.

Thanks for watching.

You paid thirty dollars for an image to G code generator? One comes free with Linuxcnc, which is free itself.<br> <br> <a href="http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gui/image-to-gcode.html" rel="nofollow">http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gui/image-to-gcode.html</a>
Nice to see the idea go to a working product. Congratulations.
Many thanks, rimar2000. Very appreciated. I have fun with these projects.
You are a MASTER!
