gerber import to engraving with cnc mill (by Sualc)
Hello,

Your software is fantastic.
I suggest the possibility of import the gerber files (form PCB software design, like Kicad, Eagle, etc.)
And calculate the engraving to make it with a cnc mill.

Will be very useful!

Thanks, I'm glad that you liked it.

Import features generally would be useful in SolveSpace; but have you looked at EAGLE's outlines.ulp? That does cutter radius compensation within EAGLE, no extra tools required.

Thanks you for the answer.
I'll take a look to this ulp.
I imagine its possible to end with a g-code file.

You might also want to take a look at GCAM SE (https://github.com/blinkenlight/GCAM/releases); it's not specifically meant for PCB engraving but it can import Gerber & drill files / export G-code based on your isolation requirements. Let me know if it gives you any trouble / feel free to file an issue at Github.

I've used PCB-GCode for Eagle with great success. http://pcbgcode.org/
