Do You Have Some Cool G-Code?
We’re always on the lookout for cool g-code files to add to this page. If you have some you think is worthy, we’re interested. If we wind up adding it to this page for download, we’ll give you a free lifetime copy of our G-Wizard Editor.
Here’s the sort of thing we’re looking for:
- Quick fun projects someone could CNC in a weekend.
- Useful g-code utilities such as subprograms others may want to include in their own g-code.
- G-Code that demonstrates some clever technique others can learn from.
If you think you’ve got just the ticket, send me an email via firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your g-code, tell me what sort of control it runs on, what it is, and briefly say why you think it should be added to our g-code page. I’ll let you know quickly whether I’m going to add it and whether you get your free copy of G-Wizard Editor.
