hmm... I think I'm gonna need to get my 3rd and 4th axis up and running at some point in the near future.
how about paul?
hmmmm! anyone listening that uses an stg card?
les seems logged on but not keeping track.
my new install of 2.18 acts like it was compiled with NO_INDEX_PULSE ...homes on home switch not on the index pulse...is this the dist default?
or do I have other problems?
stg installed from the 2.18 rpm ?
which i presume implies the 2.18 rpm
which driver did you spec in the ini file ?
hmmmm not stg2 if that is what you mean.
not stg2 - Just trying to isolate the files to look at..
extstgmot.c seems to have all the flags commented out. ...which should mean they work...right?
the behavior is like this:
if say x is a +4 ...well off the switch clicking home makes it go neg until it hits the home switch...where it homes immediately
if I place the axis on the home switch it homes immediately. good to about a thou but the index pulse had better do better than that.
I can put it different places on the home cam and it still acts the same....no movement before it homes
and you are using it with a Version 1 STG card ?
since i installed the dev version I could do a compile tomorrow and see if that changes anything.
Can I mail you the rpms from 2.20 & 2.22
didn't know there was a 2.22...I do have a 2.20b CD here.
is there a way to force an rpm to a new tree?
Having sent the two files, it occurs to me that the Ver 1 STG driver might be suffering from the same bug that Les had originally.
wouldn't see the index pulse
so what is the fix
did it ever work for you ?
the index pulse...no
...well maybe....but not in conjunction with a home switch.
on the other machine....on channel would home immediately...and the other one would look travel for less than a rev of the ball screw and then home. ...
so I guess the answer is ... I don't know
gotta run now...hot date :-)
will get on tomorrow morn...
one can only take so much spy movies/shows for a week.
been watching "MI-5" the neat series... and now this "The Grid" miniseries.
good evening paul
errr.... very early morning.
way past bed time here..
how are things?
<blunt answer> pissed off...
a little bit.
Dead control on the Lathe & no money to fix it..
I must say, I really do appreciate all the work you do w/ the distros
I'm having a great time w/ the RC46 installed to a box here
Will have bdi-4.09 out at the weekend
I love being able to apt-get install things
I have Gimp running in another window on this machine (ssh connection)
and if you feel adventurous, you can upgrade rc46 to BDI-4
I'm not that adventurous yet
I've got a lot of CAD stuff on this box that I just got installed
pythonCAD, varkon, sagcad, qcad
tried out the next release of gCAD3D a few days ago
what do you think of it?
Hmmmm.... Needs documenting, and locales needs fixing. German text isn't my preferred choice.
where you able to import anything or generate any g-code?
kinda produced some g-code. Not that it was emc ready
have you ever gotten a hold of the source code for gCAD3D? I've never seen it.
EMC needs an APT interpreter to make the most of gCAD3D's output.
about 5 years ago, I almost spent the money for the source code for the old US gov't APT stuff
$1200 but it was on old magnetic tape for VAX
I couldn't find anyone to read it for me, so I gave up
the agency that sells it also didn't want me putting the code out for public consumtion
which was the whole idea in the first place
US.gov is pushing stepNC now ?
I haven't looked into that
the bitter taste of the lost APT code sort of pissed me off
taxpayer dollars my ***...
Is step closed source?
or otherwise restricted?
dunno - I know NIST are doing some work on it...
I need to go. Thanks for the BDIs!
to be honest, it isn't that difficult to parse a line and break it up in to tokens - Pretty standard fare for any language.
