@Dominic It's been awhile since I have done any cnc projects. Are you using open source design tools for your CAD or CAM?

@Dominic

It's all controlled from a windows computer, so i doubt it, so far I've just made 2.5d designs, drawing a patch, setting cutting depths. @jolyon says the software is really good by CNC standards. I am not impressed!

Excellent, it looks like hackland is even better than tangle ball at making vast quantities of sawdust. Keep it up!

The CAM software I have for my little 4-axis desktop mill is also running on an old XP windows machine, and I'm not too fond. I've thought about switching to EMC2/LinuxCNC and MeshCAM or PyCAM. Just wondering if anything had made some new leaps and bounds towards being reliable/usable in the 7 years since I was last making chips.

The CNC mill at tangle ball runs on linuxcnc. dangerous beans and others got it running rather well, with an almost entirely free software stack.
