also changing probing process..

It may be possible to add another mode to PlasmaC to handle the laser stuff, depending on what the requirements are.


i can give u for linuxcnc with VNC,, with acutal system connected we can test togather ,.. also i can hold the gui if u want,

PlasmaC has an output pin named plasmac.state-out which shows the current state PlasmaC is in.

I'd be happy to take a look at the changes you have made.

awesome. how powerful is a 500usd laser cutter? that might be a good idea to learn about laser cutting a bit and have a play.

just want to say this looks really cool. and I am eagerly awaiting developments. Once it is sorted I think I may make a laser cutter. it would be so good!

and if I could do it for under 10k usd that would be awesome. If would pay for itself so fast. then I would just need a brake press and we are away. need a linuxcnc brake press controller next lol sounds like i better get up to speed with qtpyvcp

is this from JPT tommy?

it would be good to get a fiber laser if possible

you should have a play maybe. we use laser cutters all the time to cut out our projects. (we pay another company to do it. But the cut quality is so good. it is amazing. )

and a chinese laser cutter is about 50000 usd for a 2kw one. and then you still get a chinese controller that may or may not break down and can't be fixed. So I am keen as to use linuxcnc I could make the frame for about 3 or 4k usd I think that would be with square linear rails and high speed chinese servos. and then the other big cost is the laser source.

That was a joke, CO2 can cut some plastic and wood, but not metal.
I am very interested in this and it would have been magnificent to have one now as i have two machines that can do some stupendous speeds and accelerations. But i can not order one for now.
