Generating g-codes with matlab?

Subject: Generating g-codes with matlab?

Hello all,

I need to generate g-codes for some path profiles that I've generated in
Matlab.

Has anyone come across any toolbox or utility for doing this from Matlab? I
searched the web but (surprisingly) didn't find anything that would do it
directly from Matlab.

G-code programs I've looked at don't appear that difficult, so I may just
write my own but thought I would check here first (and possibly avoid
reinventing the wheel).

Thanks for any help/advice.

Pat

I used Eulers Best approximation method to do the integration along X, Y, and Z and used the points as G-Code values between desired functions. Since complex design will require a collection of multiple functions I just did each part by part. dx, dy, dx become the small increments along the tool path. Hectic but it worked as an experiment. At the end you have to output the data as excel file and edit as necessary to add other unique feature such as tool change, speed and FR.
