The purpose of the 'dxfgerber' program is to generate optimized DXF files for processing on a Gerber cutting machine. The software for this cutter is apparently not very intelligent and doesn't seem able to sort line and arc entities in a DXF file in a relevant order.
- This software does two things;
- Look for lines and arcs that fit end-to-end (contours) and write them out in the correct order.
- Sort contours, remaining lines and arc in ascending order of their bounding box, sorting first on the y-coordinate, then on the x-coordinate.
There is also a related program that generates nc code for the Gerber cutter directly. This has not been tested yet.
