skunkworks: upload finished, md5sum matches
alex_joni: will download it tomorrow morning.
fenn_ is now known as fenn
jepler: 2 short feature requests for stepconf
1. it would be nice if one could invert an axis direction from stepconf (negative scale)
2. it would be nice if stepconf could handle "sleep" & "boost" pins (to enable extra power in the drives during accel, or lower the power while it's sitting idle)
I advised the guys (it seems a lot of people in germany have drives which support boost, to do it in hal, some ddt's to get accel phase, then comp to determine output)
but it's a bit of a hackery
maybe we can get the info out of the TP.. then hooking it up with stepconf should be fairly easy

alex_joni: downloading at 200KBs
looks like about an hour
or not - 10% done
1 hour sounds a bit much :)
it's windows estimate ;)
I had to watch cradeks' video again this morning. (a few times)
* skunkworks502 hits play again
I think it is pretty awesome.
skunkworks502: I noticed 2 more things while running the live cd, so it's not the last version
however it would really help me a lot if you can test the install, and that it reads emc2.2 in /etc/apt/sources.list (after installing)
No problem. I will throw it on my test machine.
14 minutes for 20%.. so it should be done in about 30 minutes form now
does this make sense? http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48086
61% - seem to be slowing down a bit. 156KBs
alex_joni: emc doesn't support "sleep" or "boost" pins, so I don't see how stepconf can
alex_joni: I also don't understand your comment about negative scale.
you should be able to reverse the direction of travel in two ways: check the "Invert" pin on the setup page, or enter a negative number in "leadscrew pitch" on the axis page. If one of these doesn't work, I'll fix it.
I used your asf file as it seemed to be a little bit better quality. I think the aspec ratio is a bit off after rotating it with microsoft movie maker. It doesn't look too bad though.
when I rotated it I used a pretty low bitrate
jepler: are you the official circuit board miller now that the max is down?
skunkworks502: I still haven't successfully milled a board on zen .. but then I haven't touched it in two months.
somehow I never get around to it
alex_joni: I removed the transparancy on the pic for pdf, it work.
alex_joni: nice spash screen :) Repository looks right.
skunkworks502: check the apt keys (after installation) and run a media check
those are two other things that people noticed were wrong with the live CD
"sudo apt-key list" and look for a jepler key.
jepler: will do

umm - was that bad?
no, it looks right
I ment posting it.
not at all
cradek: did you see the link to you on youtube?
thanks, but that's a terrible video :-)
I'll make more as it progresses. I made a couple more parts last night.
I suppose - your almost done. I would have thought the b axis would be the hardest
getting the travel back that's taken up by all that stuff is going to be the hard part
are you trying to move the spindle back?
is the x/y table separatable from z?
yes I think they are just screwed together with a block for support
I'll probably have to mount everything on a base of some kind
that is going to be neat :)
Have you thought more about the kins?
yeah I'm not sure how useful it will be for making stuff, but it will help the emc project
yes but I haven't started writing anything yet
the funny part will be that the X,Y axes rotate with C. XYZ is the workpiece's coordinate system
* skunkworks502 thinks that sounds complicated ;)
yeah me too
I could model this machine in vismach but I haven't done it...
I bet that helps a lot
and it's very safe too
I think you will be able to do a lot with it.. Just what is the question.
most (?) people doing 5 axis work use cam. I don't have anything except the simple stuff I write.
have to start playing with apt?
well the price is right...
and it is open - isn't it?
I think so
I actually got one program written in apt... it was painful but it would probably get easier.
[16:42:48] <cradek> http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/Diagrams/PlatonicSolids.gif
it would be a fun exercise to make these
I'm off to put up siding... it's warm.
yes - plus it would be cool to make a sphire with a end mill.
Have fun :)
(keeping the flat of the mill perpendicular to the radius
* alex_joni is back
jepler: I ran a media check on the latest livecd, and it failed on md5sum.txt
I have no idea why the md5sum.txt has a md5 checksum inside md5sum.txt :)
(actually I suspect, I didn't remove it before rebuilding it.. I'll look into it a bit later)
so far so good

tissf: I see no reason why not :)
It was just a ques
I'd like to see improvements in the french documentation for the next 2.2
but we need to test it all (including building pdfs) in advance
jepler: Me too
jepler: pdf problem's solved
jepler: at this time!
jepler: I do not do a good job with the pressure, as you :)
I should not have encouraged you to do it at the last minute
so I guess no more issues on the live cd?
except the borken md5sum.txt thingie
I have been playing around.. No issues yet. The only odd thing was that the dns was already set to 192.168.0.1

skunkworks502: I think it does that automatically?
It is the first time I have seen that with dapper.
or is that something that doesn't work for you?
might have been my old resolv.conf in there..
I need 1.1 here - but it was easy to change.
* alex_joni is cleaning up the iso now
normally it is blank
that is how I did it last time.. Wanted to play again
skunkworks502: I'm building anothe one now (hope it's the last one).. will let you know when it's up
sounds good :)
I should be able to test it before I go home then.
will probably be another 1.5 hours at least
what the hell of internet connection do you have? ;)
I only have 2Mbit upload
I'm having issues with this:
(cd extract-cd && find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum > md5sum.txt)
that is also adding md5sum.txt to the newly created md5sum.txt (which obviously can't work..)
"-not -name md5sum.txt -print0"
well.. I simply removed the line from the file
but it seems like a borken advice on the ubuntu wiki
skunkworks502: ETA 1:30 h
[19:04:35] <alex_joni> http://dsplabs.cs.utt.ro/~juve/emc/emc2.2.2-1-ubuntu6.06-desktop-i386.iso
I'm off to my tennis lesson :) bbl
skunkworks502: I'm gone.. another 1:10h
here's another small ubuntu: http://minibuntu.crealabs.it/
I'm thinking it would be interesting to have a clock which ties a particular time to a particular part of the day. For example, I might make 6:00:00 AM be sunrise every day.
but that means that in general there won't be 86400 legal seconds from one 6:00:00 AM to the next
so should I vary the length of the second, or should I make the day not always begin and end with 00:00:00 and 23:59:59 (remove or add seconds as needed)?
jepler: I understand what your saying - but why?
skunkworks502: why not?
every winter when I have trouble getting up (or at least listening to the alarm) in the morning, hours before the sun comes up, I think "there's go to be a better way to do this"
its up to 673MB
you would rather get up the same time every day in relation to the sunrise?
to keep your kadim rhythms?
or however you spell that
something like that
skunkworks502: it finished some time ago
* alex_joni doesn't know how long ago
jepler messed up my notion of time..
alex_joni: 58% right now
how many times did my client connect/disconnect this morning?
04:21 -!- SWPadnos [n=Me@dsl107.esjtvtli.sover.net] has quit [Read error: 110
(Connection timed out)]
13:27 -!- SWPadnos___ [n=Me@dsl107.esjtvtli.sover.net] has joined #emc-board
13:27 -!- SWPadnos___ is now known as SWPadnos
for about 9 hours :D
the entire back buffer for the network is filled with "blah blah ... will reconnect in 2 hours" errors
about every 2 minutes though
that sure sounds "smart"
hey skunkworks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Hfn7EPM9CE&feature=related
maybe they listened to jeff's second change, and got minutes/hours backwards
plus it takes longer since sunrise is much later these days
it's almost the solstice, you know
SWPadnos: thanks - her concert was awesome also
finally... 0 checksums failed
21:01 < alex_joni> md5sum: 21f4ecdcf9f5ab09ed64b5e76fb389e6
hmm.. I just started it on my main emc2 machine
just ran latency-test..
* skunkworks502 first time
servo-thread: 1950 jitter
it'll grow a bit I reckon
it stays udner 10 usec
this is the machine I ran with BASE_THREAD = 7500
(quite a while ago..)
that would have been probably unuseable for steppers
alex_joni: have your plans for the cncworkshop?
SWPadnos: how is it going?
I just got back from my uncle's funeral
skunkworks502: I must admit I haven't made any
and I still have that bad cold, but not as badly
oh - sorry to hear that SWPadnos
alex_joni: get your but in gear
skunkworks502: unfortunately I'm in the middle of another project atm
skunkworks502: getting a place to live in :)
hmmm. yeah, winter is a good time to have a place to live
alex_joni: great - congradulations.
SWPadnos: yeah, well.. I'm not out in the cold either.. it's still mostly ok :)
skunkworks: let me know when you tried it :)
* alex_joni is going to bed
skunkworks: I'll read back in the morning to see if you had any more issues with this livecd
good night all
