I’ve released version 1.0 on GitHub (https://github.com/Uthayne/3dpBurner-Image2Gcode)
This update includes:
-New optimized raster algorithm. Skips white space in the image to prevent unnecessary travel moves. This includes getting rid of all the extra move commands. This feature is currently only available in horizontal scanning mode. On the attached picture, this resulted in a file memory size decrease by 42%! (11 MB to 4.6 MB) and an estimated time savings of over 36 minutes (1:21 vs :45)
-Optional decimal precision on laser power levels. Still undetermined if this matters or not, but the feature is here by request from @leo69.
Please give it a shot and help me test it out!
