    MakerCam

    this will allow you to either import Inkscape SVGs (be sure to change the resolution in the preferences to 90) or create them in browser.

    This will also allow you to do CAM directly on an SVG instead of using something else, right in browser. It generates GCode that the CNC will be able to take (with the tooling described when doing the cutting in makercam) and use to cut into the material

    Good Makercam Info

    GView

    This is an online tool that will take gcode done up in CAM and display the exact tooling path…. I’d imagine very useful for almost any design!

    I believe something like this is built into LinuxCNC but this will allow us to view stuff created using other toolchains.

    Here are a bunch of other links that are of interest…

    LinuxCNC’s list of CAM software (some is outdated but some look good)
    Particularly, gCAD3D and heekscnc
