I'm getting a chance to play around with your software again.....I do a lot of freehand drawing which I convert to 3d....when you do that there is a kind of suggested symmetry in some of the things drawn but it is never perfect (I'm not a robot). That's kind of the appeal of it. 
     One of the things I've been working on is a flower shape that I want to use to make a bowl. I want to cut the convex version of the concave (invert the shade scale). The only way to get the petals to match their concave counterparts on the top is with a reflection. This can be done in another program but all the things that I have done to this hand drawn flower would be lost and I would have to start all over it possible to do a reflection with current software?

hi alexaser

     I'm betting that with more use you have found that although pixelCNC looks like it is running fine at first, it actually still has problems that make using it in linux impossible. I have tried it on Debian 9.0 using wine as well and found it would freeze up and other problems (can't remember everything it wouldn't do now). I got the same error message that you did and I could get it to run by clicking OK but it ran into problems when I actually tried to create a toolpath. I wasn't using Wine5 though, so if you have found a way to make it run properly in Linux I would love to know how. That way I wouldn't have to keep switching between windows and linux on a dual booted machine. I actually installed win7 on this machine just so I could run pixelCNC. Its such a useful program and getting better all the time....Im having a lot of fun with it and I wish it ran natively in Linux....hope you are too.

It is a really good tool! And he keeps making it better....

don't know why but it asked me to save my project and share my experience with the community. I've  included a pic of my screen (I think) at point of failure if anyone can see something wrong. took me a while to find where the screenshot saved to, but I think its uploaded now......actually, not sure if pic made it or not....tried though

I get that you have a lot to do to get this program to beta stage, and I can live just fine with it tied to windows, as it is, so no worries, I definitely don't want to ask you to sacrifice development for a linux port. as far as WINE goes I have tried it a few times and, at least in the past, it complains about wglsharelists failing and would frequently crash and fail to create a toolpath. Perhaps I shall try this new version, as you have made a great deal of changes since I last tried and so has WINE. If it works I'll let you know.

intel core i5 @2.9ghz , 8gb ram dual booted Debian 9 & win10, Intel 6 /c200 chipset.

well....WINE,,,,hasn't worked so far... got it to startup with no complaints at first but once a project was loaded it got sluggish and wouldn't display properly. I tried adjusting the settings and it crashed. When I tried to restart it, it crashes as soon as the program requests to reload the pre-crash's a start....guess I'll keep working in windows for now til I have more time to play.

If anyone else knows how to get this working under WINE I'd like to know .  

First of all I have to say this software opens up a lot of possibilities and I'm having a lot of fun messing around with it. Thanks for all your hard work! I'm wondering if there is any chance you will make Pixel' linux compatible in the future . I use mostly linux for most of my work @ this hobby and I only have one machine in the house that duel boots "please wait" I mean "windows"or linux. The rest run only linux. It would be nice not to have to tie up this machine since it is the family machine and flip back and forth between the two OS's.

I can hardly wait to see the canvas system feature....I feel like I have to say something about those problems mentioned earlier....It's all working fine today! I tried the pics I was having trouble with last night and they load fine. I don't know why they weren't working last night. I am still learning how to use Pixelcnc so maybe I did something wrong.

Would be nice if this would run on linux. loads on wine but complains "wglShareList failed". seems to run then but crashes often. also have found in windows that loading some images causes crashes. despite this, it looks like pixelcnc will be a very usefull tool at an excellent price.
