Pocketnc 5-axis benchtop mill

Has anybody here used a pocketnc machine? http://www.pocketnc.com/pocketnc/pocket-nc

It's a ligthweight machine suitable for soft materials.

I recently purchased one and am waiting for delivery. I will build a Machine Kit for it using post configurator. Nice learning activity on a real piece of hardware.. I was wondering if anybody else has done this or programmed for this machine?

It's fanuc like. It's using an app called machinekit. Runs on a beagle bone black. The post and machine is easy. I've already built an Alpha version.

Just to update eveyone. I have a production working post and machine simulation that has been tested on the machine. Built with Post Configurator.

If anybody want's a copy send me a note. I'll also get it on kit staore bit that will take a little longer.
