A MATLAB program is written which users can input a 2D shape with nodes and then specify places of holes if needed; then, the program generates a CNC code which is ready to run on a CNC machine.

 Data can be inserted in 3way: keyboard, Input file, and mouse (clicking on Screen creates nodes and hole places).

Program automatically send errors and asks for corrections if there is a self intersecting between lines.

Other errors like tool diameter intersect edges, hole depth is bigger than work piece height, hole is outside the workpiece and etc. are recognized and user is asked if he wants to ignore them or make corrections.
