The mountain dew seems untouched since yesterday too
back from Peoria
road trip? anything good?
CNC punch press
we helped Jack diagnose some noise problems, did a bit of tuning, and updated the motenc driver to solve an index problem
anything you guys need that I might have?
(but we don't need it enough for me to know what it is)
well - I am not sure I have it.
how do you delete a symbolic link after it's created?
does that kill the original too??
no, ir unlinks the link (ie, deletes it)
damn... I'll back it up first.
just in case. :)
hit the bank while it's downloading. :D
skunkworks: still packing?
thought of something we might be able to use
a dial indicator (preferably a cheap one) and a mag-base
to check repeatability
just moved one yesterday.
cradek_ is now known as cradek
one of us should send a message to the list about what we did at jack's shop, so it's not one of those threads that say "my machine is broken" and tails off into nothing.
Northeastern University computer science professor Gene Cooperman and graduate student Dan Kunkle have proven that any configuration of a Rubik's cube can be solved in 26 moves. The research from Cooperman and Kunkle improves upon the previous record by one move. The use of 7 TB of distributed disk as an extension to RAM for holding large tables and the development of faster computer moves using mathematical group theory were keys to their rese
HELLO HEllo Hello hello
wow - not even alex is on.
Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emcdevel/2007-06-14.txt
we will be leaving here by 2:00 or so.. Dial indicator and magnetic base.. check
skunkworksemc: see you this evening, then
have a safe drive
Hi guys. How goes fest?
rayh: some wood chips were made on the mazak
you've seen the spycam right?
did you see the threading photos on my blog? http://axis.unpy.net/01181527543 http://axis.unpy.net/01181704483
rayh: also the mazak does TxM6 correctly now (puts the old tool back in the right pocket, and loads the new tool)
as long as you power up with tool 0 in the spindle
rayh: see you later -- we're going to have lunch
That tool change stuff is great news indeed.
yesterday on jack lambert's machine we diagnosed noise problems on the encoders causing him to lose position -- now they're going to run a similar test on the mazak
dial indicator, running a program that does a move to X1.05, to X1, then pause to read the dial
on jack's machine it routinely lost about .0005 (4 encoder counts) and for whatever reason it was systematically in one direction
If you see him again, tell Jack hi from me
how goes it?
I finally told the drs to go away and work on someone else.
did they listen?
I just left town.
oh, that'll teach 'em
At smithy cleaning up a few tings. Wishing I could get there tomorrow night but I don't think so now.
bummer. I guess we'll have to go there ;)
oops things -- pardon the upperism.
You come by Ann Arbor on the way home?
I actually could, I think
You'd be welcome.
I can email the relevant contact info.
gotta look at a map to see where it actually is though ;)
k I'll be around some tomorrow and saturday.
ah ok - on the way to Detroit
Right. About 30 miles west
45 miles north of toledo
I'll look into stopping in there. I can take the Canadian route home, but I think Ann Arbor is a haul for a 1-day drive
about 7-8 hours i think
about 11-12 from Ann Arbor to VT, I think ;)
7-8 from here though
are you ging to still be around on Monday?
(around Ann Arbor, that is :) )
Matt said it was about 11 when he came to NAMES in det.
Yes I'll be here.
ok. if I make it there, I'd probably drive there on Sundayt, then stay the night Sun and Mon, and drive home Tuesday
I'll let you know in the next day or so
how are things?
