Replicantis ™ - the CNC app enables you to design, preview, simulate CNC projects and generate G-Code ready for your CNC machine. It is a perfect alternative to desktop CAD/CAM software that runs on your iPhone or iPad.
Draw your creation from scratch using lines, curves, shapes and text.Alternatively use the integrated computer vision technology to base your project on a photo or an image. Preview your creation in the CNC simulator or in augmented reality.
Generated G-Code is GRBL compatible.
It is suitable for most 3-Axis mechanical milling, engraving or cutting machines that accept standard G-Code. It is an easy-to-use CAD/CAM alternative that helps you transform your idea into a real object - piece of art, custom part, beautiful halftone image, unique engraving and more. Replicantis ™ generates G-Code files (.nc files) that can be exported via USB cable to your computer or uploaded to Dropbox. Exported files are ready for direct sending to your CNC machine.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app for producing g code quickly and efficiently. Having the ability to input coordinates rather than finger positioning would be great. Being able to define length of line, rotation etc would be a huge plus. Perhaps a pro version would be worth considering considering with such extended features. I would have no problem when with buying it. Great work so far.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the great feedback and rating! Feature requests is exactly what we need right now!
Makes life easy!!
I have been using this app for 5 months now and I really don’t know what I would do without it. I was just about to throw my cnc router out of the nearest window when I found this app. I use it to engrave pet tags. The text function was taking too long and the font was too big but I sorted that by finding a fine font on my pc and creating a jpeg of my tag. Easy. The font has to be fine to get around the outline engraving but it works really well. Thank you. A
Five Stars for the concept ... BUT
I contacted the developer about my 'feature requests'
He advised me that he is busy with with other matters, and has no plans to continue development of this App.
This comes as a great disappointment; given that he was not too busy to take my money !!
[original review retained below, for reference]
This has the potential to be a superb App ... Thank You !
However; even when using the Apple Pencil, I have found it impossible to work to accurate dimensions & locations.
Please, if you possibly can, add
1. the ability to enter numerical data
2. some 'snap to' functionality [endpoint/midpoint/centre/grid]
3. user-defined grid settings
It does seem strange that numerical data can be entered to calibrate a picture, but not to draw ... and that lines can be 'extended' but cannot be 'joined'
