It can also produce a 3D line view, see the end of video. I am unsure how to bring that into directly shapr3D yet).
I wish Shapr3D had this feature built-in directly.
Here is the resulting dxf file.
Demo of the app in action:
I have a second version of this app that is essentially a slicer but instead of outputing GCode it outputs dxf files and passed increments of Z-height. It is so I can draw this sort of thing as a 3d object directly and then export the layers to put on the CNC (still theory since I’ve only used to to help capture drawing and not actually went directly to CNC yet… But that is the goal)
Awesome are you willing to share that ?
I am not opposed to it but currently it is pretty hard to use and I don’t want to support it since I only work on it in my little bits of free time.
I may throw it up on a web server as free, and “you get what you get” in the future.
I actually started writing it in response to many posts on this forum about how using STL type of file would not be usable. I had an idea in my head about it maybe usable so I built this as a prototype to demonstrate what I think would be a good way to approach the problem. It will a VERY cobbled together because I am in over my head on it.
Here is a more challenging example from a 3D-scanned object. I randomly found on Thingiverse:
2D with Model
Extracted Drawing (it has a cute face. ) )

Very cool tool and output …watching
