Tux Plot v4.1 (Release Date 12/10/2016)



Tux Plot is a highly configurable wysiwyg interface for a variety of cutting devices. It is designed to be an intermediate stage between your graphics design application and your cutting device. It will accept a file from your design application in the form of .ps .pdf .svg .eps .plt. Tux Plot runs on modern Debian based Linux distributions and has been extensively tested on Ubuntu 14.04/16.04 and Mint 17/18.

Tux Plot has been created with small business/shop in mind. My 30 years experience in the computerized engraving industry hopefully has given me the insight to provide features and functions in Tux Plot most busy and diverse shops will appreciate and use effectively.
