    Hello,

    I have been working on a web based queue for automating production of parts from flat stock on a cnc router.

    I have done a similar project in building a web based queue to automatically print parts from a 3d printer. I want to apply the same methodology to making 2d parts on a CNC mill.

    In order to do this I need to be able to use a command line program to automatically create the gcode for the machine. The program would need to accept a config file or command line arguments for specifying bit size.

    Any one know of any open source software that might be able to fit in to this kind of a workflow. Biggest thing is that it has to be command line.

    this might do it
    dxf2gcode
    or can be modified to do it.
    you don't state your platform but the above is python I think so will run anywhere.
