C source now available to convert FlatCAM output to use with a plotter.
File as produced is suitable for use with Roland DXY-980.
Consecutive duplicate lines are replaced.
Have included a test cnc file to run against, is rather large in size, but should take under a second to convert, based on a Intel Core2 Duo CPU 1.80GHz (Lenovo T61) with 2GB memory.
To use with other makes & models of plotters replace initialisation from start of file up to first PU instruction with required init commands & from last PU to end of file with your required commands.
Lines to change in source code are:
const char CNC2_PROLOGUE = ".@;1:IN;\n"
const char CNC2_EPILOGUE = "SP0;\n"
