Re: DIY Dust Collection System

What I want to know John is where did you get that FANTASTIC label on your bucket "I HAS A BUKKIT!" That is great. I want several. Do you know where that can be gotten?

Makercam on Raspberry PI

Yes you can load it and it will run but what comes out on the screen is moving so rapid that it looks like it needs some work. I loaded PyAMF for the repositories and atleast it started but I will have to look at why the screen acts the way it does. PyAMF is a python replacement for Flash. Bob Teeter

Re: Free CAM package (that works!)

I know from your info that it uses flash and I am going to try to use open source flash software (python based) to support it instead of flash itself then it will run on unix/linux system...
