File Sampler: Split up part files into smaller pieces

Overview...Split up part files that are too big for your ShopBot table, or "sample" small sections of larger texture files to create seemingly random textures or a series of matched panels with a continuous texture spanning them.
Notes... This will only work with files that contain M and J commands and NOT files that contain circle commands like CG...they will just pass through.

Confidence is a measure of how far along a project is in the opinion of the person that created it. If it only has 1 star then it's very rough, more likely to not work than to work correctly. 4 stars means that they think it's ready for prime time and just needs a little more feedback or testing. A 5 means that it's all won't see any "5 star" projects in ShopBot Labs because at that point it's ready for release!

Completeness really goes hand in hand with Confidence and is the measure of how complete they feel the Project download is. It could include important things like if there are instructions or help files available, but also might reflect if there are sample files or even simple things like a lack of icons or graphics.
