I’ve been running Linux CNC on a mid sized machine for about 3 years now…

If the machine is parallel connected or has a soft-stepper that’s supported its’ a pretty good option for the machine control end of things..

I’m using quite expensive commercial software for the cam/simulation end though..  Vcarve pro if you’re curious..

Cheers, Chris H.
