RoboFac is open source software for controlling a hexapod (Stewart-Gough platform) in a machine tool context.

It is written in Java, and therefore should work on any platform that supports Java 5.0 (JDK 1.5) or newer.

(2006-06-11) Sorry I haven't been able to update much lately. I've been busy with another project that you may find interesting, Big Blue Saw, which specializes in waterjet cutting of aluminum, steel, and plastic. Check it out..

The latest release, version 0.9.2 (2005-07-06), is a beta test release.
