Post Windows driver

I read the article in the forum where the polargraph was used as a large format plotter to print the patterns for a giant 3d bear

Polargraph, Pepakura and Corrugated cardboard = giant office bear


One thing led to another and I'm interested in attempting something similar but smaller to start with.
At some point I will need to print from Pepakura , I'm not at that stage yet but I wondered if you had ever considered writing a Windows printer driver for the Polargraph Sandy

Pepakura exports SVG files which the polargraph software handles fine, so there should be no problem.

Yes I did look at running as a printer driver at one point, but I got too startled by Windows programming. It's not trivial and SVG export / import _usually_ works fine like Kongorilla says.
