Tux Plot v2.2 for vinyl cutters, engravers, pen plotters etc

Postby garyinspringhill » Fri Feb 10, 2012 5:32 am

I just released Tux Plot v2.2 at http://securetech-ns.ca/camm-linux.html it will drive lots of hpgl machines and has a color line subsystem especially handy for engravers, pen plotters and routers. It will work with any Linux based application that can output .ps .pdf .eps .svg file. Will also accept a wine (windows) output. Help pdf and also help on the web site for installing your usb>serial cutters. Any help needed setting it up just email me.

It's free :)

Awesome!

I don't use a cutter myself, but I know that Windows users especially can have trouble getting work from Inkscape to their cutter. Hopefully this will be useful for them.

Congratulations on your new release of Tux Plot. In your last version it seems that there was no allowance for a US Cutter LP 24", any changes in new release?

Should have no problem at all , take a look at how to install your usb cutter on the web site (if using usb) once installed make sure it's set to hpgl (if applicable to your cutter) should be ready to go......use "HPGL" in your output code selection in Tux Plot
Any problem message me...
