@Tory if you're using a router and doing 2.5D stuff you could use something like this:

It's about as automatic as you can get, but you can also go in and fool with the settings if you want.

I am surprised that Centroid isn't working on software that could input a 3d model and it spits out G-code. Maybe it could automatically input into Intercon and with a few teaks the operator could have G-code.

Fabber already has a Centroid post!

But I would love a more direct input, something that would eliminate the need to download the G Code and send it to Centroid
