Sorry about my late response, but I was on vacation last week.

I hope you can work well with the laser version. Please let me know if something should not work.
Maybe you can send me an example of pocket milling that didn't work. Then I can try to find the problem.

An example of engraving tabs with lines would also be helpful. :)

I read in the CNCzone forum that someone found a way to run GrblGru on Linux. :)

Maybe this is also interesting for some Linux users in this forum ?

The following was the message from Junior2016:
I got GrblGru running on Linux Mint with the following procedure:

start up PlayOnLinux (POL)
start the wizards to Install an Unsupported Application
use wine version 3.7
install corefonts
install the dotnet45 library (this took some time and I a lot of fiddling but is the key step as GrblGru does not run on the default mono dot net libraries)
download and extract the GrblGru exe and select it as the app to install on POL
create the shortcuts and run


Have fun with GrblGru

Release notes V V3.28.0

Lately I've been approached on 5-axis machines.
Although I know that there are still a few construction sites open in my 2D program, I was tempted to take my first steps in the direction of 5 axes.
For this purpose, I have added a rotary and a swivel axis to the 3D model of my machine on a trial basis.
Of course, the functionality is still very limited. Corresponding CAM functionality will also be a long time in coming.
But, you can already move all 5 axes of the model manually and simple G-code is already processed by the interpreter.
The whole thing is suitable for thinking about 5-axis technology and its complexity.

For all those who are interested in this topic, I have put a small guide for importing own 3D-models on my dropbox.

Suggestions and ideas for design a practical and cost-effective 5-axis machine for the hobby area are most welcome.

As a suitable controller I have chosen an Arduino Due (approx. 50 Euro) with the operating system g2core.
My controller and motors are not yet connected, but the data exchange with g2core looks very promising.

In the attached video I once recorded my current status on this topic.

I've changed a lot. Therefore you have to answer the question about deleting the folder with 'YES' during the installation, so that a complete reinstallation takes place.

Have fun with GrblGru
