I've finally got a working version of the v-engrave plugin available for download.

The code is up at http://code.google.com/p/v-engrave-plugin/ and you can download a compiled plugin at https://v-engrave-plugin.storage.googleapis.com/v-engrave-plugin-latest.zip

There's an issue with overshoot with smooth corners, most noticeable if you have a smooth corner opposite a sharp inside corner, so check your toolpaths with a cut viewer.

For those of us not running Linux, or who don't have git, can you zip up the repository for a WinBlows download?

Thanks for this.  We've been waiting with 'bated breath for your code examples!

Done.

Note that there's a easy git install for Windows available at http://git-scm.com/download/win.

There's also an issue tracker at http://code.google.com/p/v-engrave-plugin/issues/list.  You may need to have a Google id to be able to post bug reports there.

Thank you for this plugin.
I have already translated and extensively tested last night.
It looks very good, even with complicated contours are well.
The attached file is a challenge for any  v-carve software.
But it looks very good.

A very nice addition to CamBam, thank you.

pixelmaker.

Did you forget to post the file, or did you mean the pictures you attached?

Great. Thanks for the much needed addition to CamBam.

Here I have an issue with it working for me.

Downloaded the file, unzipped to its own folder because 7zip will not unzip it to the *.* CamBam/ Plugins directory. Moved the VEngrave_Plugin.dll to CamBam/plugins directory. It is recognized by CB but I can not get it to work.. Any suggestions

Heh!  You just clicked on the plugins/about V-engrave!

Go to "machining", and you'll see a new MOp type!

Thanks Lloyd.
Because all (most) of my plugins reside in the plugin directory (highmap, ArcText, etc) I failed to look for it anywhere else.  Thanks for the tip.. Wink Grin

Hello,

Very nice job, thanks  Grin

I get some little bugs:

The MOP's icon switch from red V tool to a green arc icon when I enter value in the MOP.

The VEngrave MOP return an error message if I try to copy it.

Maybe not a bug in V-engrave, but merely that CB does not recognize it as a valid MOp, because it is not one of its native types?

Hello,

Not sure, the lathe MOP is also a plugin, and copy/paste and copy/paste format works.

EDIT: another thing, the value of Path step size is not saved in the .cb file and must be changed each time the file is opened, but maybe it's not possible without changing the .cb file format ?

Hello pstemari,
To change the MOP and save the file.
And copying a MOP.
You need Add Reference:
"System.Runtime.Serialization"

Please see attached photos.
