A Box2D based V (hanging) plotter simulator. The underlying physics engine enables to test the algorithms for a V-plotter in a fast and convenient way without building an actual machine. It is also a very nice way to test my SVG to GCode converter, juicy-gcode.
For executing gcode, open
sym_gcode.html in a web browser, copy some gcode (or try the default one) into the textarea and push the run button.
For executing steps generated by
Please note that the drawing area of the plotter is 80cm x 80cm; out of this area the plotter becomes unrealistic as I used Box2D distance joint for the strings, because it does not offer a proper rope implementation.
It is mainly designed to work with the gcode generated by juicy-gcode. It should work with every kind of gcode, but it is not well tested. The plotter draws when the Z coordinate is 0.
Please file an issue if you run into a problem (or drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
