    Development of Portable Painting Format for CNC Painting

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2013)

    London, UK, 29 - 31 July 2013


    Jerome J. Leary


    This paper describes the development of a Portable Painting Format for CNC machine-produced paintings. The file format was based on G-codes, used time-based vector graphics, and included additional-data for paint and brush properties. The file format can be used either to manufacture a real painting on a CNC machine or used to create a digital visualisation of the painting as an animation. A browser application called CNCPaint was developed to generate the file format for Pop-Art style paintings.
