alex_joni: could you walk me through something?
SkunkWorks_: I can try
how would I go about setting up a limit input
not limit - home
oh.. and I thought you'd gonna ask something hard
this is no fun
oh - really?
SkunkWorks_: just pulling your leg :)
don't do that :)
fenn: the fine manual still waits to be written
Couple of things right off the bat - I will need to be able to look at the par pins because I don't know what is hooke to what
halmeter, or 'watch halcmd show'
watch -n 0.1 halcmd show parport
SkunkWorks_: linkpp axis.0.home-sw-in parport.0.pin-12-in
SkunkWorks_: think you can do the rest?
hold on let me get my bearings. ( I am going to ask some stupid questions)
that's why we are here for
oops, show pin parport
ok - thanks fenn - how do I get out of the previous comand
fenn: watch --interval=0 'foo'
is the list live? do I need to rerun it to check state
watch -n 0.1 halcmd show pin parport
that shoudl always show the current version
SkunkWorks_: that will update about 10 times per second (each 0.1 second)
ok thats what I need to know - thanks
and it will update when you change the state of input pins
cool - ok pin 10 is x axis home and pin 11 is y axis
so I do linkpp axis.0.home-sw-in
for x ?
all on one line inside your hal file
SkunkWorks_: I'm slowly heading towards bed.. 3:30 am
ok - no problem - thanks for your help
I'd rather put it into standard_pinout.hal or whatever you use
core_stepper.hal shouldn't really change
bet you can do Y & Z on your own :D
linkpp axis.0.home-sw-in parport.0.pin-10-in
linkpp axis.1.home-sw-in parport.0.pin-11-in
SkunkWorks_: there is one more thing, to actually enable homing you need to change an entry in the ini
now I need to set up the feeds in the stepper_inch.ini
HOME_SEARCH_VEL = x.y
right, in each [AXIS_*] section
what is the latch vel?
homing is quite a complicated process
best would be you read the manual :D
cradek is adding homing to the lathe right now. you should ask him.
I would guss it hits the switch and then backs off at the latch vel?
you can find a section about homing in EMC2_Code_Notes.pdf
so I could set it to 1ipm to try
open the EMC2_Code_Notes.pdf and look at some nice pictures
you'll get it right away..
one more stupid question - how do you reverse the home direciton
change sign of search velocity
oh, jmk is around.. I can safely go to sleep
note that the relative signs of search and latch vel control the behavior
SkunkWorks_: he'll take good care of you :P
if they are the same, it searches at search vel, backs and approaches again at latch vel
cool - I have home switches
both x and y work :) I have it homing at 20ipm and back off at 1ipm
Yes - the switches where there - just not hooked up to emc
I meant the emc process
Linear Move out of range
around 60 inches of movement
* alex_joni goes to bed
night alex - thanks again
* alex_joni jawns
I hope you're not still up too
I just got up..
well.. an hour ago ;)
haha good morning then
I'm just quitting for the night
already busy at work (compiling emc2)
we'll still have to try skype sometime - maybe tomorrow?
I think more people are interested in jepler's servo etch-a-sketch than my threadcutting lathe
there you have it
oh, jmk is still up?
yeah, he didn't come back with us, I came with swp
oh good, the new bug he found got assigned to jmk instead of me
I think I saw a tiny fix for jepler's commit
but I wanna test it first..
guess he's not around anymore
the parport stuff?
no he's surely asleep
yeah, and why the first stop fails
cradek - I hear your setting up home switches on the laith
skunkworks: hi, did the homing work?
Yes - worked great
thank you - run to limmit - hits it - backs off until it is off. COOL :)
Now I need to play with g10
Do those get saved to a file?
like the g92 offsets
(I will find out - just wondering if you know) :)
the nist artical is a little sparce
* alex_joni has nfc ;)
but as always.. if you find something out.. editing the wiki is easy :))
I love emc-axis. :)
hey skunkworks, did you ever finish your cube?
hey skunkworks, did you ever finish your cube?
I keep getting disconnected - sorry
no - I still need to get a longer ball end mill.
its on the things to do list. - some people here at work want some :). Also want to make a small one out of aluminum.
that would be nice
right now I am trying to get setup to mill some decent circuit boards to try out the ir2111 that you like so well :)
oh.. did I mention I like it?
I think you had mentioned they where your favorite
I might have..
so the consensus must be that I can't write a single line of code without screwing it up.
actually I see now the mistake in the last commit wasn't so bad
* cradek stumbles out of bed
I am just going down to see if there's coffee in the lobby. let me know when you're ready to go get breakfast or something
ok, I will, sorry you have to wait on me
jepler: seems I screwed the 1 line commit too
so, don't feel bad :D
swp just called and I said we'd call him when ready to go for breakfast
I think I told him a wrong time because of my laptop clock, but close enough
you'll be ready soon?
remember - perkins sells breakfast all day :)
jepler: ready, meet outside?
* jmkasunich gives cradek/jepler a hard time for being on IRC before breakfast
(probably before they even got dressed!)
lol, what's the time over there?
tools? check. electronics gear? check. components? check. computers? check. domestic items? check. food? check. alright - 3 2 1 ign- whaat? dead battery? aaahh!!!
fenn: are you serious? that stinks.
yah just getting on the road now
see y'all in 5 hours or so
