Thank you - very much :)
cradek: did what I said about the preview make sense?
yes I get it now
can you set your monitor on its side instead?
I could - but then I would have to read sideways ;)
I'm not really sure how it would work - currently in perspective view you can't look from 'under' the work because that's confusing
I'm not sure what the corresponding thing would be for a horizontal
is the natural preview the one you'd see standing with your back to the spindle looking forward at the workpiece?
the screen would be in front of the machine - so the it would show the point of the cone going away from you
which way does the screen/user face?
The closest to what would look normal would be the First Z view - now if I could rotate that so that i could be looking down on it from the upper left... If that makes sense

that looks so useless - you can't reach the controls and the machine at the same time no matter how limber you are
if you moved the guy so he was standing on the rigth side of the y axis facing you
so the spindle is behind him over his right shoulder?
no - so he could reach out and touch the spindle with his right hand
errr could you take a picture sometime of the setup with the operator (haha) and the new console?
don't forget your tie and lab coat and brylcreem
Yes - I can do that
haha, looking forward to that
skunkworks: a bow tie is also appropriate
just don't pick one that you can't tie yourself
is clip-on ok?

mozmck: yay for 10.04 ;)
yeah! I just saw the email a bit ago.
cradek: the current perspective would have us sitting in the pit on the left side of the machine (looking at the picture) looking up and to the left at the tombstone ;)
well - i think I would have to be laying on my back under the x/z table. ;)

skunkworks, cradek: It occurs to me (because of your discussion about AXIS display orientation) that if you could set the display orientation in a very flexible manner (pick one of 6 directions as "up", 4 remaining possible directions as "forward"?), that it might also be useful for those who have lathes that are upside-down, backwards, vertical, upside-down-vertical, etc..

skunkworks: it's 'axes' not 'axis' :P
upsidedown lathe? What, is it mounted to the ceiling???
* Jymmm burries the hatch in alex_joni skull - Almost Halloween!!!
alex_joni: thanks :)
skunkworks: getting hard these days.. :P
to find typos in what you write
alex_joni: is there was yemc gui to emc?
alex_joni: aww - that is sweet. Thanks :)
micges: yes, there was
but it was pretty bad, very similar to xemc, only changed to support 6 axes
and colored blue
xemc is also blue :D
i want zemc
somebody is still using xemc?
i think green would be better color though
micges: probably yes
but not from emc2
I find that hard to believe
alex_joni: have you any new sources for genserkins?
maybe we can mark it as obsolete
moopy: nope, why?
i still have not worked out why my simulationis not working
well, the simulation should work even if you run trivkins
i will post some code later if anyone can try it?
I am not entirely sure how this interface will work.
Weird issue in a forum post. Sluggish and erratic jogging fixed by changing rotary axis limits to 0-360 from 0-3600
Ah. Ok. So switching apps takes me "away"...
I thought there was a strip chart component for pyvcp... anyone remember where this might be?
wiki search and my older copy of pyvcp_widgets.py dont seem to have it
LawrenceG: This? http://linuxcnc.org/handbook/part2/emcstripchart.html
I have never seen one. Nor mention of one. That does not mean a lot, mind you.
That is interesting Jymmm .... seems to be a standalone pgm
LawrenceG: That's all I can find =(
LawrenceG: and this http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:NBI2gO4XRUIJ:wiki.linuxcnc.org/emcinfo.pl%3FPyVCP+pyvcp_widgets.py+site:wiki.linuxcnc.org&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us
tom3p did a pyvcp chart widget I think, but is was never in svn/git (I think)
[20:37:13] <LawrenceG> http://gspy.sourceforge.net/gspy.jpg
something like the lower right chart on this page
I think it was fairly simple drawing in a canvas widget, pixel by pixel
awallin, thanks... they are not that hard.... bit blit the old data one pixel to the left and draw a line of the new data on the right... I will play and see if I can figure one out
maybe tom3p will read this later
