Request - Closed contour area mill path.

Postby srl » Wed Oct 16, 2013 11:58 am

My dream script is to select a closed contour, enter a path spacing (tool width) and have a spiral path appear to the center. Only lines would be fine, any arcs around the outer could be finished manually. It would save me a lot of time on new designs.
The maths involved is a bit beyond me.
Thanks
Stephen.

Here is the example of what I wish. This all done manually.
This mill path uses my Cam config script with details in the layer names as you can see.

It took a bit of problem solving.
I only have a little more work to do with the ramp off.
