It's new, really early beta, and missing a lot but it looks promising. I love OpenSCAD so an OpenSCAM is pretty ideal. It's built on GTK and I'm pretty sure OpenSCAD is built on Qt. I prefer Qt but GTK is fine.

I tried it a while back, and found it only worked for pretty simple stuff. Its an awesome concept. If they ever get it a little more fleshed out and a little more stable I would even pay for it. I am not hopeful hoever. There hasn't been activity on their discussion forum in 6 months, and in one section more than 2 years.

Hello, I'm the author of OpenSCAM. I just released a new version which uses Qt. It has some bug fixes and now works on OS-X. If you have any .nc files which don't simulate please create a ticket on the GitHub page and attach the file or send it to me by email. I will fix it and it will help make the software better.

Check out the new Website too: openscam.org/

You might mention that if you have LinuxCNC running 10.04 you have a deb.

openscam.org/releases/beta/release/opens...nscam_0.2.2_i386.deb

I did get an error when I tried to run openscam.
john@u-shop:~$ openscam
openscam: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_regex.so.1.40.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
john@u-shop:~$

I've got a copy installed on OS X. It looks like it could be great, but the ngc's written in inches all appear to be rendering in mm. I don't think the inches settings work in the program.

@bottleworks, I think you need to issue a G20 in your GCode to get into imperial mode regardless of the GUI setting.

@BigJohnT, You should be able solve that problem by installing some packages:
sudo apt-get install libboost-regex1.40.0 libboost-filesystem1.40.0 libboost-system1.40.0 libboost-iostreams1.40.0

If not I will make a new build with libboost statically linked.

Has there been recent development on this software? I've checked it out a couple times and I thought it had stopped a while back. Its probably been six months since I checked it out, and it didn't seem to have improved or changed from the previous time I checked it. On the other hand other than it crashing repeatedly I had no issue running inch code on it.

~~ I just saw the post where you said you had a new release. I'll check it out right now.

He just did a new release 5-6 days ago. It now runs on OS X.

I tried the Windows Version just now and I saw the issue with mm instead of inch. Also, is there a way to set arc mode? I run my CAM of machines on Arc Mode Absolute, and of course got crop circles. I did a special code build with incremental and it worked ok.
