Hi Phill,

Perfect job. You think of everything !!
I wish you all succes with development of the new plasma gui app.
When it's ready. We gonna test it !

Thanks Grotius, there is a long way to go.

Are you still working on you CAD/CAM project?

Hi Phill,

Yeahh it's a long way to the top. But you are already there.

Still working on a combination of industrial applications.
- The ethercat is perfect now, recent published a rtos ethercat iso that works wow.
- Recently managed to get the lcnc hal layer working real time with a qt c++ interface. Perfect stepper output's.
- Coded a kinematics module for 6 axis robots with the help of the kdl kinematics lib.
- Now programming opencascade's cad kernel to create a 3d environment for example linuxcnc.
It can become a replacement of tk screen and eventually a 3d gremlin replacement.
Imagine the wow effect when you open the linuxcnc gui and you see your machine in 3d, your workpiece to cut in 3d, etc.
And the gui view can have frame rate's like the unreal game engine.

- The cadcam program will be picked up later on. The good news, the offset path's and pocket algoritme's are good.
Internals of the cadcam program will be replaced, like the opengl environment to opencascade.

I have a lot to do. And finally solved the difficult coding problem's.

Cool, you certainly have been busy. I feel like I am bogged down at the moment, one step forward and two steps back, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. ?

Hi Phill,

Maybe you need some help often with coding. I suspect you are still coding in Python.
Mr. Morley is very good in Python, even as Mr. Norbert and a few others. That level of python coding is quite difficult to achieve.

In c++ it's the same problem. Some of my coding problem's took more then one week to solve.
Sometimes problem's took two weeks to find out. But i have time, and if you hold on, you will succeed somehow, some day.

I learned to accept that you don't have to understand all of the code internals.
When a lib is working perfectly, your problem is solved. When you want to understanding all of the internal's you better become an AI.

At this day's linuxcnc is at high level, and you are part of that. Creating a gui layout is quite difficult. But there are rules for colors,
simplicity for safety etc. So keep it simple. It looks nice !!

If you look at mach3. There is a list of numbers. Each number has a function. In that way gui programming is so easy. You make a button, put function-number with the button, and you are done !
So it could be a idea for Mr. Morley to write a function-number-wrapper.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel. Where can i help you a little bit?

Aha, now I know what Grotius meant, I was a bit slow on the uptake...

I will do all the work on this on Github from now so anyone can download it and have a look.
