A Cura based DXF generator from your STL

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Recently I've been working on laser cutting machines, with a 3D background I like to design parts and do assemblies using softwares like OpenSCAD or Autodesk

This is why I wrote Projekt, a software based on CuraEngine to get the slices of your part and export it as DXF:

https://github.com/Rhoban/Projekt

You can also use it to generate multiple gravures level, it will uses polygon differences with the previous layer

Don't know wether there is already softwares that do this kind of thing

I may create a gui for this some day (maybe this could be an output option for Cura). Hope this helps!

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
