argh, I was bound to forget something
in this case, axis enable pins
hey jepler, did you notice the problem I had with extra_setup() ?

found a buglet - dunno if it is axis or the interp itself that is making the assumption that causes it
I'm working on a long part - longer than my machine table
putting slots every 4"
I fixture the part so I can reach one end, touch off there, set to zero, mill first couple slots, no problem
then I re-fixture the part so I can do a couple more slots
I can't reach the end of the part, but I can reach one of the previous slots
I touch off on that slot, setting Y to that coordinate
the new program makes slots at 12 and 16", and does not contain a line that mentions any Y coord less than 8
but the axis backplot assumes that I start at Y = 0, so it draws a line that begins outside the work envelope
and I get the "program exceeds machine limits" warning
2.2 or 2.3?
in 2.3, chris changed how initial rapids are treated, for exactly this reason
I suspect, but don't know, that 2.3 wouldn't have the rapid shown and would not give the warning
it doesn't draw them at all, right?
right, I think that the zero or more rapids before any other movements are not show
fixed bug of the week?
for better or for worse
(no, what's "f"?)
in 2.2 I'm pretty sure you can say continue and it will work fine though
I sure hope so, thats what I'm about to do
nfw do I have time to update
I took today and tommorrow off from work, and I don't know if it will be enough
since gcode is only move destinations, you can't know where the machine starts
If there is anything you guys can think of - we are driving down friday.
we'll let you know
I will be bringing version 38 of the h-bridge ;) (and some extra parts) (steves_logging wants to play a little also) Maybe stuart has something big to stick it in ;)
the cinci ;-)
but don't break it - I hope to be doing some machining with it on Sat/Sun
Cool - for your pcb mill?...
I'm building the main table frame now, I hope to do the table itself there
a couple surfaces on the frame are 24" long and need to be straight and parallel to the ballscrew centerline
then mate table plate to frame, and cut t-slots, etc - 26" long and also need to be parallel to the screw
I got a great ballscrew from ebay for $80

jmkasunich: very busy?
was wondering if you read back last night, about the hm2-stepgen
in TRUNK I want to change some things about the locations of executables.
* alex_joni goes back to his robot simulation
basically, I want to do two things: add a "libexec" dir for executables that usually don't make sense to invoke directly, just from inside emc
it's quite heavy on the head when 15 joints are moving
and put executables from scripts and tcl into either bin or libexec as appropriate
jepler: sounds good
(an example of a program that isn't usually invoked directly is module-helper)
(of course there will be a fair number of judgement calls, and that's the part I'm not looking forward to)
sf is going to force us to a different issue tracker?
sounds like the perfect moment to decide to set up a bugzilla that we host

oh was that in the mail that I didn't read?
"TaskManager: replaced by TaskFreak!, dotProject, Trac ticketing"
trac is a piece of software that poorly integrates bugs, wiki, and source code history viewing
I've never heard of Task!Freak!!
I don't have experience with the others
replacing one thing with three things can't be a win, can it?
taskfreak is php+sql
and so is dotproject
oh, is dotproject the one michael tried at work? I see that their front page has a gantt chart, which we absolutely don't need in emc
oh and dotproject also has a "calendaring" app
I really wish people would stop fixing things that aren't broken
none of us knows how crappy the sf bug tracker is "inside"
but it's silly that they did two visual redesigns of it in the last year, and now they're ditching it
maybe they discovered that smearing some gradients on top doesn't make it stop sucking
it doesn't? darn
holy shit, they don't even eat their own dog food - it must be bad stuff
yes, as far as I can tell neither of them uses it, at least for public consumption
jepler: are you sure they are closing bug tracking?
alex_joni: that's how I interpret the message
I don't ..
they are closing the task manager
which we don't really use
I tried to set up some things a long time ago, but nobody followed them ;)
we don't use discussion forums
we don't use docmanager
we don't use diary and notes
well they get a big "fail" in communicating, then
I don't see any mention of "tracker"
which is the stuff that keeps bugs & feature requests
I didn't remeber "tasks", and so I just assumed they changed the name of "tracker" in there somewhere
hopefully not ;)
oh look at that out of date and useless information in "tasks"
it was so usefull, no matter they're closing it down
darn, I was looking for a chance to take one more service off of sf
good night all
cvs downtime coming up in the next few hours
I'll mention it again just before it occurs
should be short
ok, now's the time. shuold be back in 10-15 minutes.
cvs is now booting .. it should be available in a minute or so
.. should now be up
