[12:15:30] <micges> hi alex
[12:16:25] <micges> what difference is between kinematics IDENTITY and BOTH ?
[12:24:02] <micges> alex_joni: I have problem with gantrykins and halui
[12:25:08] <alex_joni> kinematics IDENTITY means that you have a trivkins machine
[12:25:24] <alex_joni> and there is no problem in switching from joint to world or reverse at any time
[12:25:55] <alex_joni> kinematics BOTH means the machine is a special kinematics machine, which has both forward() and inverse() functions
[12:26:11] <alex_joni> but you only can change from joint to world if the position is known (e.g. machine is homed)
[12:27:02] <micges> so when kins is forward only forawrd kins is available ?
[12:27:47] <alex_joni> emc2 thinks only forward() kins are there, and it attempts to use only those
[12:28:04] <alex_joni> not the inverse()
[12:28:15] <micges> ok
[12:28:23] <micges> this is my config: http://emc-files.webpark.pl/polimery.tar.gz
[12:28:30] <alex_joni> so when you switch from world to joint, you lose the machine position, and possibly need to rehome it or soemtihng like that
[12:28:44] <micges> there is panel with SET and GOTO
[12:28:47] <alex_joni> sorry.. can't look now, maybe if you bug me later
[12:28:55] <micges> sure
[12:28:59] <micges> np

[13:46:35] <cradek> haha
[14:03:36] <alex_joni> hi BJT-Work
[14:03:45] <BJT-Work> hi alex_joni
[14:05:04] <BJT-Work> I'll get the inside comp example finished this weekend
[14:05:10] <alex_joni> cool
[14:05:17] <alex_joni> holler if you need help :)
[14:05:22] <BJT-Work> ok
[14:05:29] <alex_joni> got my email today?
[14:05:38] <BJT-Work> no
[14:05:51] <BJT-Work> or I missed it
[14:05:54] <BJT-Work> :/
[14:06:03] <alex_joni> probably missed it :)
[14:06:33] <BJT-Work> crumb, then it got erased... can you re send it?
[14:06:45] <alex_joni> yup, to jet<mumble> ?
[14:06:51] <BJT-Work> yep
[14:07:03] <alex_joni> it does have a zip attachment
[14:07:08] <alex_joni> maybe your filter ate it?
[14:07:30] <alex_joni> Subject: Fw: Emailing: EMC Task and Thread Creation at Startup.zip
[14:07:34] <BJT-Work> I really should have my first cup of joe before I run email cause I remember that now
[14:08:19] <BJT-Work> didn't realize it was to me... I was a crack monkey this morning if you can't tell by my commit's
[14:08:31] <alex_joni> heh
[14:09:35] <BJT-Work> I was side tracked by shiny leds on my mesa card this morning :)
[14:09:50] <alex_joni> whee
[14:15:15] <alex_joni> bbl
[15:55:44] <BJT-Work_> BJT-Work_ is now known as BJT-Work
[20:07:48] <alex_joni> I wonder if anyone tried out 2.3.0~beta1
[20:07:59] <cradek> me me me
[20:08:26] <alex_joni> besides the handfull in here :)
[20:08:37] <alex_joni> how's the menu icon? :P
[20:08:48] <cradek> I've used it quite a bit
[20:08:57] <cradek> um, I didn't notice the icons, sorry :-/
[20:09:22] <jepler> you mean the one in the Applications menu? who uses that!?
[20:09:28] <alex_joni> ha :P
[20:11:21] <cradek> I noticed there's no way to set the spindle override by keyboard in AXIS...
[20:11:37] <cradek> and I see ;,' (maxvel) are not on the quick ref
[20:11:40] <jepler> cradek: do you have a suggestion to go with it? we're running out of keyboard
[20:12:33] <cradek> :," or {,} are the only choices I see, and they both are unfortunately shifted
[20:13:26] <cradek> (I need to get my panel done)
[20:13:26] <jepler> hmmm
[20:13:54] <jepler> how about shift-F9/F11 or whatever spindle increase/decrease are
[20:14:36] <cradek> hmm, maybe if a program is running f11/f12 could do the override
[20:14:49] <cradek> or maybe that's too magic
[20:14:55] <cradek> shift-f11/f12 sounds fine to me
[20:14:55] <jepler> I considered that too
[20:42:52] <jepler> * jepler begins to think that cradek was looking for more than a suggestion of which keys
[20:42:57] <jepler> cradek: are you expecting me to code that?
[20:43:22] <cradek> well I was only complaining
[21:14:18] <alex_joni> now that's a motor: http://www.hi-end.ro/motor-pas-cu-pas-20nm-p-2143.html
[21:14:58] <alex_joni> 17lbs :)
[21:21:00] <alex_joni> whee.. they even link to linuxcnc.org for the software :D
