Turn wizard / Linux
« on: April 24, 2015, 12:00:03 PM »
I understand from reading various posts and replies on Mach3 andMach4 boards that wizards for mach4 will be standalone like the NFS Mill wizard.

Will there also be a turn wizard for mach4?

Will the Mach4 wizards run under Linux?

I am finding that Windows contributes greatly to the intermittent, unrepeatable quirks that I experience in both Mach3 and Mach4

The nfs Mill package is a standalone program, not dependent on Mach4 in any way. It can connect to Mach4 and pass files, but its not needed. It was written using wxWidgets and in theory all we have to do is re-complie to get linux or Mac versions. The theory has not held up so good, but in time it will happen.

A turn wizard and a router wizard built on the same base is planned- I  think Brian wants me to start on router next.

Thanks Ron, if you need testers for anything Linux related consider me a willing participant. Opensuse 13.2 Kde4
