Stl2Gcode 5x opens .stl files, scales, rotates, slices layers and generates GCODE for laser or mill cutters. It can be used for make DIY models or prototypes of anything from soft materials (plastic, wood, styrofoam, foam plastic).

Supported type of cutters: laser or mill (in cutting mode): 3 (XYZ) or 5 axes (XYZAB, XYZAC, XYZBC). At this time, only laser with XYZAB has been tested.

Available modes:
- 3x — generate GCODE for all detected faces for a 3 axes cutter.
- 5x — cut only faces detected from top of layer to bottom (taking max angles for rotation and min_z limit into account).
- 5x & 3x — cut all possible detected faces in 5 axes; faces rejected by 5x mode limits will be cut in 3x mode.

What’s New

Version 1.3

• Multi pass cutting added.
