If you want Cubiio to engrave along the path of your drawings, you need to convert your drawings to G-code files. G-code files are script files that describe paths, speeds, and the max power of your drawings.
To generate G-code files, you need to do two things:
1. Create a Vector Graphic File (ex: .ai .cdr .dxf…etc.)
a. You can do it with your favorite software such as Illustrator, Corel Draw…etc.
b. If you don’t have any experience of vector graphics, we recommend “Inkscape”.*
c. Otherwise, there are plenty of galleries on line that allow you to download.
2. Convert Vector Graphics to G-code files
a. You can do it with your favorite software. Please check our supported command list.
b. If you don’t have any experience, follow our instructions about converting vector graphics to G-code files with Inkscape.
Inkscape is an open-source vector graphics editor similar to Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand, or Xara X. You can create vector graphics and convert them to G-code files with G-code extensions.
