HeeksCNC does additive printing…sort of .

Here’s my first attempt at using HeeksCNC to generate g-code for my makerbot.  I wanted to print a part with a screen.  That should be a pretty easy part, but since skeinforge wants to slice a .stl,  it turns out hand coding it is easier.  Enter HeeksCNC.  I used the pocketing operation with a custom post-processor to do the work.  This is a very limited application, but it shows the promise of using HeeksCNC operations.
