Imagine you want to add a good zigzig stitch better than the z-pattern sort of thing in the draw tool. You could make one with much better control it would simply require defining a ribbon program. You ask the community and are told that an easy way to do that would be: o2,3,90,20ns-1kB4,10B4,5f0

How would you specifically add that and use it?

The Ribbon Tool

The Ribbon Tool runs various short programs resulting in sequences of lines that generally look like ribbons, and are acceptable for embroidery. 

There are two main components to this process, Nodes and Drawing Sequence. The nodes define particular locations.  There are a variety of different nodes types, each type interacts in different ways with the other nodes. The drawing sequence defines what we are drawing using these points.
