Javascript SVG/DXF/PDF generation

I just came across this when I was updating some tools I had on my PC…

Maker.js is a Microsoft Garage project with source code on GitHub that looks to have a decent coding interface and looks like it might be entertaining to code things in. Their project page has some interesting demos that look intriguing!

Your compass and straightedge, in JavaScript.
Create line drawings using familiar constructs from geometry and drafting. Initially designated for CNC and laser cutters, Maker.js can also help you programmatically draw shapes for any purpose. It runs in both Node.js and web browsers.

2D Export formats: DXF, SVG, PDF (Requires PDFKit)
3D Export formats: OpenJsCad script, STL (Requires OpenJsCad or openjscad-csg)



That looks really compelling. Can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

Very interesting. That could be really useful.
I really need to take a 2 or 3 or 19 week vacation so I can ramp up on all of this…


I really enjoyed playing with that. Bookmarked!
