Hey fellow makers, I’m hoping to get my OpenBuilds Ox CNC router back up and running after a long kitchen remodel put my garage toys out of commission. Part of that is I have switched my host PC from old Windows 7 to Linux Mint Cinnamon. I have CNC.js installed, which is what I used before. But I have also installed bCNC. Looking at its UI, I see it does CAM (but heck if I can figure out its confusing UI). Before I spend too much time trying to figure out it’s CAM UI, I’m wondering if it does 2.5d? Does anyone here know? Documentation seems sparse and outdated.
Barring that, does anyone know of a decent OSS CAM that will do double-sided 2.5d? (as in, flip it over for full 3D) I think Kiri:Moto does, but it doesn’t look like jscut.org does. Makercam.com uses flash, so that is a non-starter for me. If I can’t find a good OSS CAM, I may just use ESTLCAM (not OSS, but cheap and does 2-sided jobs). Although, come to think of it, I’m not sure it does Linux.
Also, Merry Christmas everyone!
