Found this little program at Sourceforge:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/spiroj/?source=directory

It's Java, so you only have to unpack it somewhere and click on SpiroJ.jar in the SpiroJ folder for it to run.

Of course, you also need to have your Java sfs loaded

One of the nice things about it is that you can control the number of steps it makes, and if you are planning to export the result to SVG format, the lower the number of steps, the lower the number of nodes being used in the SVG, and therefore, the smaller your SVG becomes in size.
Now, mind you, that does mean your design has straight lines and edges, but even so, you can make some really nice unexpected designs that way.

I can't seem to adjust line thickness in the program, but it functions in any other way.

Once generated, you can optimize the SVG further by replacing this bit:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<svg width="10cm" height="10cm" viewBox="0 0 323 323">
  <title>spirofishes01.svg</title>
  <desc>Creator: SpiroJ version 1.0.2 beta</desc>


with this

Code:
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" width="10cm" height="10cm" viewBox="0 0 323 323">


,which btw, also makes it behave better in your browser.

All in all a nice little program for creating svg mozaics.

I got into .svg when I started using "LibreCad" . Scaled Vector Graphics .

I had tried to convert a .dwg file to a .svg so that I could use another program to automate a "cutout optimisation program" to give to a steel guy to make up with a water cutter .

I ran into problems though around the .svg not being suitable for that optimisation for some reason.

I'll go back and refresh on that now and see if this can help Thanks solo.
