Virtual Guilloche

  © Tailmaker!! All rights reserved.

(Beta Version, NO FIRM PLANS WHEN TO RELEASE....!)


  • 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)

Features 


  • 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
