Using a CNC michine for PCB Drilling and Routing


Hi, I am new to CNC work my expertise is in the Electronics industry, and Printed Circuit  Industry.

I am building a small CNC machine using Arduino and CNC Shield with a drill mounted for 1/8th shafted drills/Routers, my question is I can get G-Code from Eagle Design Program but If I want to program from a Positive image of a PCB using a camera mounted in place of the Drill head and then traverse over hole positions what do I need to program these hole locations and then convert to G-Code.

Hoping this is not to small a project for the bigger boys but would be most grateful for any feedback.

Regards John
