       visolate - tool for engraving PCBs using CNCs


       visolate [options] [file]


       This manual page documents briefly the visolate command.

       visolate  reads  the gerber files describing printed circuit boards and converts them into
       the G-code (RS-274 code) needed to engrave they layout into a board using a  CNC  machine.
       Precise  renditions  of  the original layout can be created as well as voronoi fillings of
       the original layout, shortening the toolpath.


       A summary of options is included below.

       -a, --auto
              Enable auto-mode. When in auto-mode, visolate will load the given file, follow  the
              usual  steps  (fix  topology,  generate  toolpaths),  save  the  toolpaths and exit

              This is primarily intended for use in scripts; be aware that visolate still needs a
              connected X display and a graphics card to do its calculations.

              Use absolute coordinates (instead of relative, which is the default).

       -d, --dpi DPI
              Do all calculations with a resolution of the DPI parameter.

       -o, --outfile OUTFILE
              Set the default output location to OUTFIlE.

              This is particularly useful in combination with --auto.

       -x, --flip-x
              Flip the input file's X coordinates (reflect across the Y axis).

       -y, --flip-y
              Flip the input file's Y coordinates (reflect across the X axis).

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

              Show version of program.
