Computerized Cutting Systems and Supplies – KLIC-N-KUT › Forums › Cutters & Equipment › KNK Force › Anyone cutting from Linux?
First post here! Hi everyone! It’s my first time on the site so if there is already a thread…yeah. I searched and didn’t find one.
I’m using Inkscape on a Linux (Mint 18.1) machine and was wondering if anyone has had success cutting directly from a linux machine.
I’m about to drop the hammer on a new force but I want to make sure it’s compatible with my current machine. I mean I suppose I could run windows but I’d rather not.
Yes. The KNK Force cuts from C3, a program running on the Raspberry Pi inside of the cutter. You communicate with C3 from your browser, such as Chrome. I contacted KNK USA and Chad, the VP said this:
Chrome runs on Linux quite well. I run my Force while on Linux all the time.
Note that your Inkscape SVG files will open in C3 but you will need to make a few changes to shapes according to the guidelines in the UM. For more information on that, please refer to Section 4.02.4 at this link: http://www.iloveknk.com/0um/Force-with-C3/KNKForce-with-C3-UM.pdf
