GOOD DAY!

I'm new here. Is it possible to combine 3d printer, laser engraver, plotter, and milling machine in one Graphical User interface, like Pronterface?
Thank you in advance. I really need it sir/ma'am

... I've modified and "expanded" Pronterface to use it for pastedispensing and laserengraving (and general CNC-controlling like pick'n'place and mill-engraving) by adding specific "toolboxes" and external importer-plugins - here an image of the modified GUI and some of the selectable toolboxes:





The "basic" program, derived from Pronterface is now called "gieCAPS" - it stays open-source ... but the external importers and toolboxes are meant for comercional use and are precompliled, so the use/usability of gieCAPS is only interesting with the targeted tools and applications ...
