This software runs on Windows PC only. It is tested with Win XP, Win7 and Win10.
Most likely it will also run on Win2000 and Vista.
The machine control code generated is standard G-Code that should be compatible with most machines. It can also generate .bmp bitmap files for import into CAM software like VcarvePro or Aspire (trademark Vectric).
All G-Code is to be executed with a v-bit between 30 degrees and 120 degrees included angle. The maximum flute diameter must be bigger than the selected maximum line/groove width
The surface of the blank to be machined must be absolutely parallel to the table, ideally milled flat before cutting the pattern.
This software is still in beta status. No full license can be purchased until full release (no date planned but let me know if there is interest)
Circular, rectangular or linear Guilloche pattern to emulate Rose Engine lathe work or other ornamental turning patterns
Variable number of loops, traces, line resolution and pattern repetitions
Variable loop amplitudes and angle offset
Selectable line width/depth changes
Direct G-code generation for v-bit machining
Bitmap output with high resolution for further processing in CAM software, e.g. for flat bottom v-carving or inlays
