    Hello folks,

    I've written software that converts Eagle PCB output to G-Code so you
    can use any 3 axis mill create a quick circuit board. Every thing works
    perfectly from eagle but i'll like to be able to import a gerber file,
    then convert to G-Code.

    I have no problem converting Gerber code and displaying it. The
    difficulty starts when you have rearange all intersecting element types
    and then gernerate offset toolpath geometry.

    Is there any one out there that has done this?
    Is there any one that would like to help with this project?

    thanks
    jim

    You should look into using mill-outlines.ulp to generate HPGL instead.
    The gerber route is alot of trouble, HPGL using the mill-outlines.ulp
    generates offset tool paths.
