Mowing video moved

Jumpcut is closing, so I needed to move this video to youtube. This relates to my earlier posts here

and here

When I find time to work on this next, there are many ideas for improvements: How to specify only climb/conventional milling (allowing only the right or left side of the cutter to be used). Using a variable step length for the simulation. Simulating dynamics of the macing (controlling the tool with a trajectory generator with acceleration/speed limits etc). How to implement rapid feed between cutting moves? how to choose among many allowed starting points for the cut? Should this use an adaptive resolution model, like a quad-tree? How should G-code be output, a filter which outputs G-code within a specified tolerance of the simulated path would probably be best?
