I developed a software called VisiCut (http://visicut.org) which enables Windows, Linux and Mac OSX users to operate a lasercutter without additional drivers. Most lasercutters are restricted to be used on Windows with CorelDRAW at the moment, so VisiCut and Inkscape would be a great alternative.
For a good user experience it would be nice, if there was a toolbar button or at least a menu entry which opens the current version of the svg file in VisiCut.
This means I basically need a plugin, which is able to
- be launched via toolbar (if possible)
- save the current state as SVG (preferrable only selected elements if possible)
- and run a script.
I searched a bit, but there does not seem an easy tutorial and it would take much time for me to dig into this. I thought for people with experience, it should be about five minitues to write that plugin, so if anyone is interested, I would really appreciate it.
