This is a collection of the stuff I have related to LinuxCNC.

This is an almost never seen on the web, tutorials without any ads… I hate tutorials written or stolen solely for profit!

Tutorials

Sample Configurations

Examples

Classicladder Turret and Tool Change

This example shows you how a turret would work with Classicladder. The Pyvcp screen provides the inputs and show the current status of tool change.

GladeVCP + HAL

This example shows you how to run a GladeVCP panel with HAL for a simple GUI that can use all the power of HAL without the complexity of LinuxCNC’s motion control. You can have things like encoders, pwmgen, stepgen etc.

Sheet Alignment

This addition to LinuxCNC allows you to align the coordinate system to the sheet of material.

  • Four Pyvcp buttons are added to your panel.

  • Start Align, Align Y, Align X, and Clear Offset.

To align along the Y axis jog to the left rear corner of the material.

  1. Press Start Align.

  2. Jog to the left front corner and press Align Y.

  3. Cut your parts then press Clear Offset.
