Hello together,

i'm using linuxcnc now for many years, only doing simple programs. Currently i have to do many single parts only running for about 5minutes on the machine. And i had thought about if it's possible to set all my programs (.ngc files) to a list which i can open in AXIS an can work trough it part by part.

Has someone here already implemented something like this? Or do you guys even think it would be possible?

Best regards Marv

Almost anything is possible however you would have to program Axis to do this task. Axis is a mix of TCL and Python and not easy to make program changes to it unless you understand the cryptic TCL language.

It would be much easier to do with a QtPyVCP GUI.

This is my BP mill GUI in QtPyVCP.

Hi John, thanks for your answer! Ok i will try setup a new QtPyVCP. Never done something with it. But now i know where to start. If i succesd i will post my solution. I think a worklist handling where you can machine many programs and for examle set the number of each part to machine would be a great feature!
