Linux image to laser g code converter

Screenshot-8

I did find imagecarve a GPL V2 open source program. After mapping the Z axis to S spindle values it looks like the g code it spits out could work with my laser. I only did test this with the greate grbl simulator, but I would guess after some more tweaking it should work on the real machine too.

Here is my Github project with the source files.
