Pleae take a look to the following sml files, which use space filling
curves for toolpath generation. The last curve hilb3.sml includes
absolute move's to negative coordinates so use it at your own risk.

The advantages of using such geometric structures and similar ones
(curvilinear grids and finite element meshes) are worthwile pursuing,
(better thermal process management, stronger parts, form engineered
structures, porous body generation etc...)
