PyCam is installed on the Dell Dimension 8400 in the electronics workspace as well as the Dell Poweredge 2950 Server and the CNC kiosk. (I put it on the server because it is painfully slow on the Dimension.)

I really like PyCAM so far, although I haven’t actually used the gcode it generates.

To install on debian:

download the dpkg from the PyCam website.
run ‘dpkg -i [file]‘ on the downloaded file
run ‘apt-get install -f’ to fix the dependancies
