Type Name/Link Description
2.5D web based MakerCAM[1] Open source and web based software in Flash based on PartKam. Hosted and maintained by our hero Edward Ford.
Hand Coded gcode tutorial Reference material to get you started writing gcode by hand. This is a great point of reference once you get into creating your own gcode, or if you need to modify generated gcode.
3d modeling GSimple Program to design 3D objects and generate the G-code for them. Made for Windows but runs on Linux with Wine.
3d modeling HeeksCNC A CAD/CAM application for Windows or Linux that can help you produce NC code.
CamBam CamBam (commercial demo) Application to create CAM files (gcode) from CAD source files or its own internal geometry editor.
2.5d engraving (opensource) F-engrave Python program for generating G-code from outline fonts (w/ algebraic analysis of outlines to vary depth when using a v-shaped bit and the ability to place text on an arc), (some) dxf files, pbm graphics (using potrace).
3d modeling PhlatScript Google SketchUp plugin for generating G-code.
3d modeling FreeMill Free 3D Machining with very easy to use wizard.
PCB PCB-Gcode Script for generating G-code for milling a PCB out an Eagle PCB layout.
PCB stencil Stencil-Gcode Script for generating G-code for milling or laser cutting a SMD stencil out of an Eagle PCB layout.
3d CAM PyCAM A toolpath generator for 3-axis CNC machining. It loads 3D models in STL format or 2D contour models from DXF or SVG files. The stable release is working but extremely slow and uses a lot of RAM for complex models in 3D. The development release is much faster and should be prefered. MacOS install
