Minilase

This tool parses and patches Minilase EZCAD save files with values specified in a YAML config file. The EZCAD format as implemented in this crate was reverse engineered from sample files, so not all formats or options are supported.

TODO:

  • Write settings to output file by default
  • Figure out some sort of formula to sweep power density

Usage

Usage: minilase.exe [OPTIONS] --input <INPUT> <COMMAND>

Commands:
  diff   Diff two .mlp files and print differences between the two
  query  Queries input .mlp file for pen or object info
  apply  Applies configuration YAML to input .mlp file
  help   Print this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)

Options:
  -i, --input <INPUT>  Input .mlp file to parse
  -v, --verbose...     Increase logging verbosity
  -q, --quiet...       Decrease logging verbosity
  -h, --help           Print help

Configuration File

Operations defined in the configuration file are applied in order of definition.

Pen Operations

Setting values of specific fields for a given pen:

Ops: 
  - !PatchPen
    Pen: 0                  # Target pen

    # Specify one or more of the following:
    Color: [127, 127, 127]
    Enabled: true
    LoopCount: 3
    Speed: 1.234
    Power: 10.5
    Frequency: 10000
    PulseWidth: <PulseWidth>

Where <PulseWidth> can be 2/4/6/8/12/20/30/45/60/80/100/150/200/250/350/500.

Cloning pen(s) (and optionally override settings):

Ops: 
  - !ClonePen
    From: 0
    To: 1

    # Specify one or more of the following:
    Inclusive: true
    
    Patch:
      Color: [64, 64, 64]
      Enabled: true
      LoopCount: 3
      Speed: 1.234
      Power: 10.5
      Frequency: 10000

Incrementing a specific field by some value across a sequence of pens:

Ops: 
  - !PatternPen
    Index: 1
    Count: 5
    Field: <PenPattern>

Where <PenPattern> is one of the following:

Field: !Loops 1
Field: !Speed 100.0
Field: !Power 10.0
Field: !Frequency 1000
Field: !PulseWidth 2 # Increment

Randomizing pen values:

Op:
  - !RandomizePen
    Index: 0
    Count: 10
    
    # Specify one or more of the following:
    Speed: [100, 1000, 100] # [min, max, step]
    Power: [10, 100, 5] # [min, max, step]
    Frequency: [20000, 100000, 1000] # [min, max, step]
    PulseWidth: [2, 350, 2] # [min, max, step]

Exporting a pen to a file:

Ops:
  - !ExportPen
    Index: 0
    Path: "exported_pen.bin"

Importing a pen from a file:

Ops:
  - !ImportPen
    Index: 0
    Path: "exported_pen.bin"

Object Operations

Deleting all objects from a layer:

Ops:

    # Specify one or more of the following
    Z: 0.0
    Origin: { X: 10.0, Y: 10.0 }
    Pen: 3
    Layer: 2

    Hatch: <HatchOptions>
    Export: "exported_object.bin"
    ReplaceObject: 0

Where <InputObject> is one of the following:

Input: !Rectangle { Width: 3.0, Height: 2.0 }
Input: !Circle { Radius: 3.0 }
