point me to how would i tie this system in to Linuxcnc, im thinking path mapping/ some kind of line following. i have a big CNC plasma and do a lot of template work, now i take the templates pic and trace it in inkscape and them size it in draftsight, then convert it to g-code. would be nice if i could trace template on to new sheet and then let roborealm control linuxcnc and follow the trace with the cutting too. maybe an Ethernet interface?

While it is possible to do its a bit tricky to generate straight G-code. I've attached a similar transformation that we used to create SVG code (not unlike G-code) from a given image. It uses a simple threshold to create the outline but does show how to convert bitmap image to vector based. Perhaps it can be of some help.
