OK after getting linux up and running. I installed HeeksCAD, or I should say I tried to install it on LinuxCNC. I first downloaded a python script the author refers too. Well it kept bombing out looking for libarea (which was installed). Found a newer version of the script somewhere that addresses this problem. Fixed a few links, and it finally compiled (over an hour to compile, spent 5+ hours getting this far). So I start it up, and…core dump inside one of the math libraries built for HeeksCAD.
Next up PyCam. There is a Debian package for it, but it DOES NOT SEEM TO TAKE DEPENDENCIES into account. So make sure you install them yourself. Once I did that and started it up, the screen for it came up right away. The interface is a bit clunky from what I am used to, but it should do for now.
