LinuxCNC controls CNC machines.

It can drive milling machines, lathes, 3D printers, laser cutters, plasma cutters, robot arms, hexapods, and more.

  • Runs under Linux (optionally with realtime extensions).
  • Simple installation on Debian and Ubuntu, or via our Live/Install DVD/USB images.
  • Accepts G-code input, drives CNC machines in response.
  • Active user community.
  • Several different GUIs available.
  • Compatible with many popular machine control hardware interfaces.
  • Supports rigid tapping, cutter compensation, and many other advanced control features.
  • Full source code available under the terms of the GNU GPLv2 (General Public License version 2).

Note: The linuxcnc.spec file is still a work in progress, however it is fully usable on a daily basis - physically tested with Mesa 7I92 only.
