FoamBlade Project Homepage

New Repository

Update: Feb. 2012

After some time, development on FoamBlade has started again.
For this purpose, a new repository was created to host further
development of the FoamBladeSuite.

The repository is located at
Further versions of FoamBlade will focus on CAM features like
cut-path processing and generation.

It is also planned that traditional CNC tasks can be done with
LinuxCNC. To support this FoamBlade will also contain configurations
and adoptions for LinuxCNC.

Try it:
git clone git:// foambladesuite
