News and tips for MeshCAM

Linux CNC with MeshCAM

Astute website watchers may have noted the page I added, Linux CNC . I’ve spent some time with the latest Ubuntu/EMC2 distribution from and I can report that MeshCAM works well on that OS using Wine, the Windows emulator included in the distribution.

A MeshCAM user, Eddie F, contributed that page to help the community and it finally convinced me to give it a try. I had always heard rumors that it worked well but I remember Wine being flakey many years ago and I never bother to try it. I found that MeshCAM worked perfectly under Linux for everything I tried. If you’re a Linux user then give it a shot, I think you’ll like it.
