JSCut Inlay Assistant

JSCut Inlay Assistant is a light customization of the wonderful JSCut web-based CAM program. Just like the original, JSCut Inlay Assistant will convert SVG files to CNC g-code cutting paths. However, it is specialized to the needs of those doing inlays, such as those found on the peghead or fretboard of a guitar. The Inlay Assistant will automatically generate combined g-code to perform “climb-conventional” combination cuts that are needed to cut accurate inlays and pockets, as discussed in the article CNC Inlays in Lutherie. JSCut Inlay Assistant is less general than the original JSCut program, but functions in much the same way, and retains the beautiful simulation capabilities that let you see the paths that will be traversed.
