I am planning to develop a CNC drilling machine for a college project. The idea is to export the hole coordinates and drill size directly from a .brd file on Eagle, which will later be read by an MCU for processing. We're trying to define which format to use: gcode or gerber. Any suggestion for a third option will be gladly welcome.
Which one is easier to work with or is better documented?
Also bear in mind that we want other students to be able to do the exporting from Eagle without much effort.
Thanks for your help.
