[04:17:47] <SWPadnos> oh man.
[04:17:52] <SWPadnos> What is Software?
[04:17:58] <SWPadnos> What is Hardware?
[04:19:21] <cradek> ignore ignore
[04:19:44] <cradek> at least that's my strategy for things not beneficial to the rest of the list
[04:25:37] <SWPadnos> heh
[04:26:02] <SWPadnos> though I think I may be able to craft a response that helps others as well
[09:22:59] <CIA-18> 03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/task/emctaskmain.cc: copy/paste error. resume should clear out pause
[13:31:56] <CIA-18> 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/stepconf/stepconf.py:
[13:31:56] <CIA-18> Support new pins:
[13:31:56] <CIA-18> * spindle brake
[13:31:56] <CIA-18> * m64/m65 digital outputs
[13:31:56] <CIA-18> * m66 digital inputs
[14:43:20] <jepler> huh another sim-only weirdness .. somehow, the realtime environment is being cleared when I 'loadusr -w sh latexit.sh', which itself calls 'halcmd gets' ..
[14:43:25] <jepler> but not on true RT systems
[15:15:03] <alex_joni> odd
[15:59:22] <alex_joni> bbl
[17:50:26] <jepler> crap, I bet a dollar that this is due to the probe_parport change in 2.2.1.
[17:50:41] <jepler> (doesn't disable the PNP interfaces it enables)
[19:07:11] <alex_joni> jepler: what is?
[19:15:49] <alex_joni> n/m read in #emc..
[20:44:11] <jepler> cradek: is feedhold ignored during spindle-synchronized moves?
[20:46:59] <cradek> yes
[20:47:13] <cradek> (I think)
[21:29:17] <tissf> can lyx files version:276 be converted by lyx2lyx --to 221 ?
[21:29:54] <tissf> jepler: question for you :)
[21:31:00] <jepler> tissf: when run on a machine which writes version 276 or above, the answer should be "yes". When run on a machine which has an older version, the answer is probably "no"
[21:34:32] <tissf> Lyx v1.3.7 that comes with dapper bug with copy / paste
[21:34:34] <tissf> I installed the v1.5.2-1, latest stable but it generates files v: 276 : (
[21:35:32] <jepler> that version should come with its own lyx2lyx scripts .. check whether it installed them in a different location (e.g., in /usr/local)
[21:36:36] <tissf> ok I look
[21:42:26] <tissf> jepler: That was the problem, fixed, Thank you
[22:19:24] <CIA-18> 03cradek 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/5axisgui.py: XYZBC bridge mill
[22:22:25] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/5axis.png
[22:31:02] <Roguish> cradek: can i be a bit nosey and ask what the 5axisgui.py is for? also, very nice model picture.
[22:31:47] <cradek> it simulates a 5 axis bridge mill hooked to emc2
[22:31:52] <Roguish> i have to estimate the cost of design and fab for a 4 th and 5th axis head to attach to a gantry mill/router.
[22:32:05] <Roguish> just about like your model shows.
[22:32:18] <cradek> the model in that picture is connected to emc2 for testing to help visualize
[22:32:35] <Roguish> how the heck do you pull that off?
[22:33:04] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/tiny-logo.png
[22:33:26] <cradek> I just made the model, we've had the machine visualization stuff for a while
[22:33:27] <Roguish> too much!!!!
[22:33:37] <cradek> there are already scara and puma configurations in emc2.2
[22:33:44] <Roguish> how is the visuallization run?
[22:34:11] <cradek> have a look at one of the robot sample configs
[22:35:32] <cradek> bbl
[22:36:50] <Roguish> thanks
[22:37:31] <CIA-18> 03cradek 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/Submakefile: build 5axis vismach
[22:38:19] <alex_joni> cradek: your artwork has room for improvement :P
[22:38:29] <cradek> please do
[22:38:51] <alex_joni> oh, I think I'm even worse than that
[22:38:57] <alex_joni> but jmk's puma is way nicer :)
[22:39:10] <alex_joni> it's nice anyways..
[22:39:15] <cradek> I think the head is very nice, but it got worse and worse after that
[22:39:25] <cradek> and the table floating in space is a nice touch
[22:39:33] <alex_joni> yeah
[22:39:50] <alex_joni> I wonder.. how hard would it be for vispy to include some STLs for visualisation
[22:40:05] <alex_joni> define rotation / translation point.. and that's it
[22:40:23] <cradek> not very hard
[22:40:27] <alex_joni> stl or some other 3d model (vertex, whatever)
[22:40:31] <cradek> getting the models is the hard part
[22:40:38] <alex_joni> drawing them?
[22:40:54] <alex_joni> or reading/interpreting the files?
[22:40:58] <cradek> both
[22:41:09] <alex_joni> I can do the drawing part
[22:41:40] <cradek> it would be neat, but I don't think it would give us anything that cubes/cylinders don't
[22:41:45] <cradek> (for developing)
[22:42:02] <alex_joni> yeah, that's for sure
[22:42:10] <alex_joni> but it looks nice :D
[22:42:47] <cradek> I have to go for real now
[22:42:50] <cradek> goodnight alex
[22:42:54] <alex_joni> goodnight
