Embroidery with Grasshopper

Hello, i use a tool called Embroidery Gcode Generator to generate gcode than i extract points from the code.
I don’t find a plugin which can read gcode directly, this will better to extract points faster and the real colors.
Steps:

  • Create dst file with Embroidery software.
  • Convert dst file to gcode with Embroidery Gcode Generator; sadly the tool is very old and can’t save the gcode ,so i need to copy it manually.
  • Extract points with Grasshopper, the animation is possible but it need long time.
