Commodore 1520 Plots SVG Files
NOTE! Split gears causing causing or plot errors? New replacement Alps gears for the Commodore 1520, Atari 1020, etc are now available! Click here to order your set.

I’ve put together a quick program that can convert an .SVG file into data statements that can be used to plot it on a Commodore 1520 Printer/Plotter. The program doesn’t run on the Commodore 64 (yet) but instead runs in the browser. It’s not ready to release yet as it’s fair picky about the types of .SVG files you feed it.

To whet your appetite, I’ve prepared a .D64 disk image that has four BASIC programs that will plot four different Commodore logos.

Download the disk image here.

And if you need plotter pens for your Commodore 1520 printer, you can get new old-stock pens from @futurewas8bit!

    I just repaired my plotter using that wonderful gear set – would like to test the app, picky or not. 🙂
