#emc-devel | Logs for 2007-10-17
alex_joni: now the irc client scales with screen size. Very nice.
really? cool :)
I didn't consider that..
this is quite nice :D
* alex_joni greets himself
anyone know german?
alex_joni: I swear that when I removed iocontrol.9 that I added it to section 1!
* jepler scratches his head
alex_joni: in that case, thanks for picking up after me
I thought you did too..
there was another file called io.9
maybe you know what it is..
that makes "man io" show the same page as "man iocontrol"
then I guess it's needed for (1) too
".so" is "source"
* alex_joni goes away for a while
cradek_ is now known as cradek
Guest356 is now known as skunkworks_
cradek: Is the config you used for the NIST lathe around someplace?
duh /me slaps head.
pretty quiet lately
yah. a bit scary
hmm.. a user is complaining about a very low feedrate for the following circle:
G03 X0 Y0 I0 J-0.0005
(it's a very small circle in mm)
is his accelleration set really low?
emc has a couple different hard-coded arc tolerance settings. 0.0005 might be below one of them
fenn: is hexapod-sim supposed to run?
vismach.py: Track: why am i here? world is not in the scene yet
rayh: there's a parport wiring adapter with that lathe too, be sure to not plug in the mighty drive directly to a parport
also there should be a hand-drawn diagram of the wiring
alex_joni: I bet skunkworks_ is right about the accel limit making that arc very slow
alex_joni: it's a bug in the way vismach traverses the tree (?) but doesnt seem to affect anything else
it's dying because of something in the head-up display
max allowed vel of a circle is sqrt(accel limit * radius)
alex_joni: cd emc2/ and cvs up
actually i dont remember committing anything with HUD stuff in hexagui
so i guess "global HUD" doesnt define the variable HUD :(
not in tk
or tcl or whatever it is
dunno about python though
not in python either
i can probably do away with the global now
if the accel limit is 100mm/s2, that gives a feed of .22mm/s, but the circumference of the circle is only .003mm. it should not take long at all.
skunkworks_: I think you should post the output of "glxinfo" in that thread. If it shows your system using the mesa software opengl that will be a big clue
* fenn wonders how many thread cycles that is
but nobody should assume my math is right without checking it...
in order to check your math i would have to use an email client of some sort, i suppose
* skunkworks_ wonders why fenn is obsessed with email today
where are you reading about this .0005mm circle?
alex said it above
100mm/s^2 is pretty high accel
but maybe not for something that does .0005mm circles
can you use comp --install to install kernel modules?
ie, new kinematics
SWPadnos: yes that should work
SWPadnos: sudo comp --install for run-installed systems, because regular users can't write to that directory
