Cool, thanks

@all
if someone has improvement suggestions, so that it could improve your workflow or fits in at all,
I would be happy about tips / suggestions. I use the CNC also only for the hobby and have no idea what requirements are otherwise so, but would like to make it also usable for others.
sometimes it also opens me up to new approaches i had not thought of

now i can open an dxf/svg in axis, this starts viaconstructor und returns the gcode back to axis/linuxcnc :)
but i don't know how to embed the gui into axis tab's :(
  it must be possible, because pyVCP uses also pyqt5, but for what ?

Wenn es umbedingt sein muss kann ich schauen wie das in pyVCP gemacht wurde, das ist nicht das Problem, nur für was ? es bringt nur nachteile das cam eingezwängt in einem Tab offen zu halten.

Das laden über 'axis -> open -> dxf' funktioniert ja schon, es startet halt ein neues fenster.und überträgt den gcode beim schließen.

No that does not necessarily have to be.

It's your program and I think it's super great that you make it available!
I only searched for it because you asked what it could go with ....

I will try it out tomorrow.
Do I have to do anything else for it?

I am very grateful for everything you have done,
it all helps me.
At first I thought it was a good idea, but I think it's enough if you can start it via the axis menu.

i have to make a new release first and see how it can be implemented most easily without having to edit the start-script by hand.

Upgrade to new version:

   python3.9 -m pip install viaconstructor==0.4.2

and add this to your linuxcnc config file (.ini) in the '[DISPLAY]' section:

PROGRAM_EXTENSION = .dxf DXF-Drawing
PROGRAM_EXTENSION = .svg SVG-Drawing
dxf = python3.9 -m viaconstructor
svg = python3.9 -m viaconstructor

thats all (i hope)
