the marketplace for g-code programs
About g-codesource.com

This site is for digital/CNC designers and artists who create designs and g-code programs giving a marketplace for programs; and for 
craftspeoplestudents, and businesses, giving a source for ready-to-use programs. 

The primary goal of this website is to make a marketplace for  high-quality g-code programs; a marketplace that is easy to use, secure to purchase from, simple to navigate, and that does not distract from the products with visual clutter and advertisements.

The second goal of this site is to promote 3D design + manufacturing as an art form. Just as digital graphic design has become an art form, and industrial design is an art form, 3D digital design  + manufacturing is an art form that creates a tangible work of art, or work of industrial design. g-code is just a means of translating digital art to physical parts and sculpture. There are many highly talented artists and designers working in this un-recognized medium.

The third goal of this website is to support technology by spreading knowledge about g-code and supporting the use of industry standards. Machinery needs to be made to industry standards, and support portable programs that can be moved between machines from one manufacturer to another. Imagine what computers would be like if you couldn’t use a file from a Dell computer on a Hewlett Packard! The use of standards enables, empowers, and promotes the entire CNC community.
