This forum exists because users like us want to run PP which uses the LinuxCNC engine. To say a forum shouldn't exist because it's not supported, Then they why support any GUI that is not delivered with LinuxCNC, Isn't that the purpose of the User Interface forum, Oh that's right. users help those users out, its only PP that this applies too right.

ANYONE can get a copy of PP in either source code format OR a Complete installable copy of PP ready to go on a USB drive. Teh source code format does NOT include teh copyrighted button graphics you get a generic set of button images.

IF you duplicate teh Tormach hardware it is not hard to setup and it is a nice GUI to use that for teh most part works teh same as a comercial controller. and it gets better over time.

Linux CNC could have done that many years ago but chose not to.

I worked with PP to help someone be able to change teh mesa card to another model with much more I/O so other features could be added, Encoder for rigid tapping and encoders for FRO and SSO and GPIO to run a tool changer. . The original PP ran a 5i25. the lastest uses a 7i92 and I used a 7i80 4 port model. So far so good ,it works . Would I recomend it to everyone ?? Not a chance. The learning curve was extremely steep.

This is my 50th year working around this field so I did not just fall off the cabbage truck this morning.

Yes this site could pull teh PathPilot section ANY time it wants to. The users will just move somewhere else

I have it on a private github only because of the license for the images.
it's available for S&H from Tormach for $10.
But let me send them a email and see if they are ok with my making the github public. again only for the images. the rest is under opensource license.

No wories, it is just to see what the fuss is all about. I do have 1.9 stashed somewhere and i never used it.
I still use Axis Gui on all machines, i like the simplicity of it and i just add whatever i need to it.
Thank you.
Regards,
Tom.
