My total experience is 4 or 5 hand cuts about 100mm long...

But I am having fun and that is the main thing (well it is for me anyhow) :)

Cheers, Phill.

Thats about it. Its all on the first post of Phill's thread and also in the read me files in GIT

I wrote a how to here when I installed it on my machine
forum.linuxcnc.org/plasma-laser/36410-co...fig-for-any-hardware

but things have changed a bit because Phill has now got a configurator

If you use Sheetcam, I've shared a working post processor and Phill has a python script included that reads the Sheetcam toolset and imports it into the Plasmac GUI.

Phill,
I am grateful for all your work, also for Icelander and Rod in helping you, and while doing that proving to the world what Linuxcnc can really do. I am really sorry for not helping much, but life has a way of messing plans up, luckily I am working out the issues and soon I can join.
It has been and still is a hell of a ride fiddling with Linuxcnc and bending it to our needs, no matter how complicated or iracional or strange they might be, and that my friend is something that 95% of humanity dies without feeling the joy of.
On to read the rest of new posts here and get some sleep, it is 2:52AM here.
With utmost respect,
Tom.

I'd like to add that you can install a distro with the preempt kernel already compiled and installed from the LinuxCNC downloads.
