this is a piece drawn by my CNC machine.
The art was generated in InkScape and the gcode was generated using the inkscape to gcode extension "gcodetools" from here

Thank you Nick! http://www.cnc-club.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35

What did you use to generate this? I know you converted it with gcode tools. I am looking for the file that you used? I would like to make one that would fit inside of the shapeoko.

if you wanted to resize it, I would suggest opening the svg file in inkscape, then simply select all and resize it.
After that I think you would want to regenerate the gcode. I don't recall if I uploaded the .svg with the gcode layer in there. I think you can delete the gcode from the svg but if not let me know and I will see if I saved the original without gcode in it. The gcode thing is a bit obscure but his site does have decent enough instructions. I had planned to update this with more detail...

BAH! I did not see the svg. I am not sure whats wrong me at times. :) One other cool trick. Checkout http://makercam.commakercam.com you can do that without inkscape.

I used inkscape to generate all of it.

The spirograph part is straight out of the Extensions>Render>Spirograph and the rest of it is done using the clone Tile tool. Edit>Clone>Create Tiled Clones
