Just went to point some one at this and saw the video on youtube has died ..... would be good if we could see the rugbot in action :-)

Many thanks to the kind folks here for their help. When I started I knew nothing about CNC and figured that open source was the only way to go. The key things I found were using Inkscape and gcodetools tangent knife to create the paths, then using "hypot" of only the X & Y axis to input a velocity command to drive the needle keeps even spacing at any speed. Thanks and I hope you find the video entertaining

I often get asked what else from lathes and mills can linuxcnc do, I then point them at this as I think this is a good example of a different application (sure the principles are similar but it is interesting and different

I assume the video has disappeared as a result of some housekeeping either by the original poster or youtube etc and hope it will be replaced

Yes, I was doing some house cleaning but it is back. the mechanics shown have changed some and I really should update the video. Thanks for watching and if you have any questions please let me know. It goes to show what crazy stuff can be done with LinuxCNC with the help of all you kind folks on the forum.
