hey Phydbleep :)
wth is diesel rellay?
it's to early ;)
* anonimasu is toying around with the code for the racecacr
and my back aches like sh*t
I've been up 3 hours :/
* anonimasu regrets it
but this is fun stuff
going to test it on a bench on the afternoon
getting ready to go to bed
Jymmm: bedtime ?
[10:18] <Jymmm> midnight
Ok ladies, I'm outta here... G'Night all
I bought a new router from ebay..
so when is it getting delivered to my place?
* Yuga is going to ring some of his student's neck's
* anonimasu yawns
anonimasu... feel te same way
need to be getting some sleep
I woke up too early
anonimasu: always at work
also when sleep :P
also when sleep :P
anonimasu: today im goint to try to solve chipload issue..
it's seem i'm not the only one having this issue
[09:02:35] <Jacky^> http://www.woodweb.com/knowledge_base/CNC_tooling_Whats_the_best.html
* anonimasu is having rule issues
the technical reglement probits sensors on the gearbox
although there will probably be a special permit for it..
it sound to me strange
it's the FIA DIV 1 rallycross rules..
probits sensors on the gearbox..
ah, it's fear of traction control
but I think I have a way around it..
[10:16:35] <Jacky^> http://www.nyx.net/~smanley/tach/tach.html
this seem a nice tachometer
but i can't see any schematic :\
I've just moved the machine with the USC
anonimasu: what was wrong?
had to set the port to PPC
epp I know ;)
instead of ECP/EPP
right, using DMA?
you should tell JonE to update the info on his webpage
I dont know if it uses dma..but I am pretty sure it does
if it runs EPP then it should
anonimasu: then, pauls has suggested right
22:31 < paul_c> try ECP/EPP
ecp/epp didn't work
epp only worked
i mean, the clue was the port setup
I think I had epp first..
ah dosent matter now
[13:37:12] <alex_joni> http://www.rovinj.hr/kartaFlash/
anonimasu: it's where I'm going next week
no clue where that is
it's very near from italy
it's nice I've heard
there are some nice pics on that link
follow "stari grad"
back again ?
what is hapening here
not alot today.
Has EMC *ALWAYS* been gpl?
Jymmm: I've moved the machine with the USC now
anonimasu what was the problem?
Jymmm: the port settings has to be EPP
instead of ECC/EPP
did you try ecc?
I set it to epp, and it would work..
ok, well any improvement?
& I changed back to the orginal cable..
still got one axis that does not move..
need to check the wiring
but it seems FAST
what is fast?
with the usc
I havent really made much..
hm, I couldnt push out pulses for over 2m/min
about 3.. with very very high period settings
max speed will be 7.5m/min
ah, cool. Got a hi-res pic yet?
no cam still
been working all day since morning then slept a bit
wth?! go beg/borrow/steal one
brb, going to go and set up the machine..
I already told you... sleep when you're dead
I didnt have much choice I fell asleep as I sat down in the sofa :)
does that count as being dead?
I guess, but sounds like an excuse to me
* anonimasu needs to write a specification of this racecar project..
there is always coffee
for the special permit required in the european championship..
* anonimasu will slam a pile of paper in their head
oh you're gonna write a whitepaper, but you can't write a simple letter?!
* Jymmm sighs * lol
I am dysfunctional.
well, too tired to mess with setting up tonight
well the weekend is almost upon us, get a camera, then play with it then.
I dont know if I'll have time either
might work over the weeked..
gut this project to finish
how can I troubleshoot an uncommanded pause and will not resume ?
jerry: check dmesg
jerry: and turn on DEBUG in your ini
ok, i'll run check dmesg, debug hang on
nothing really jumps out and debug is0x7fffff in ini
you get no error popping up in a window, and nothing on stdout or in dmesg?
if you already have debug on, check your stdout
no and i've run this particular program twice with the same results
are you using emc1 or emc2?
i'll have to restart in command line mode
drew the part in qcad, sent to sheetcam to process, but its missing about six holes someplace along the line
oh! you mean it stopped at the end of the program?
yes, sheetcam doesn't send the tool home automagically, have manually input
cradek : I meant to ask you something yesterday, but totally forgot what it is! lol
wot's up les?
Well, shit... a generator is out, at least for a while anyway
2KW is $1100 and two of them cna be run in tandem. The 3KW is $1900 (has pull/remote start).
Jymmm: good, because I don't have to come up with an answer then
cradek Not to worry, I'll eventually remember. Wait till I have some beer & bbq
just plugged the STG in, and the emc2 driver recognized it ;)
still gotta hook up some devices and check the rest
hmm.. seems I've been able to duplicate the bug reported by anonimasu
on a slow computer, with a pretty fast BASE_PERIOD
and 30 usecs BASE_P
not really useable any more..
but the bug is there
after some serious mode switching
long skype call.
negotiating timelines for development of the silly air generator.
today, I got broadband at the factory
hoo fscking ray
no longer will I always have the drawings at home
or the invoice not here
or .. etc
* robin_sz is trying to choose an offensive T shirt
* alex_joni spots one: "I write code!"
how about "I've got nothing against god, it's his fan club I can't stand"
or "well, its not going to lick itself ..."
"Jesus loves you... every one else think's you are a asshole"
my fav one :)
kewl .. I can actually log into the fileserver abck at the office .. neato .. now, to set up the vpn tunnel so I dont have to :)
probibly be easyer to dig the tunnel
nah, its easy enough
robin_sz: if you read the VPN manual it says clearly:
generate some keys, share them about
a tunnel is dug the easiest if you start digging at both ends
well, I have access to both ends now . so thats a start
alex_joni... probibly be even easyer if it was already there
* robin_sz tries to remember the name ...
huh.. missed that one
tried the others :D
openvpn seems to work ok
* alex_joni wonders
I ran it in static key mode first
thats one thing i hate about the net... there are like a gazzillion programs... and they all do the same thing!
why would you want an open vpn ?
but did the full CA thing eventually
thought vpn's are for encrypting data
and locking things
no need for an open one ;)
* robin_sz slaps alex_joni with a fish
* alex_joni puts it on the bbq
now ... all I need to do is generate a new key for the new box so it can join in the fun
so, the US Digital guys have passe don my request for API data for their USB IO box
what happened with that rabbit stuf?
hey les.... u alive?
just walked in!
Robin, I have been negotiating development contracts.
they are proposing that.
* alex_joni is tired
3 months...hmmm I like 1 year better.
still hunting a bug
not a fun thing on a slow machine :((
but it doesn't show on fast machines
how slow is slow?
emc is still starting
3 minutes now
I run the big machine on only 200
It seemed servo emc actually ran faster on an old 150 than a 500!
kewl, it seems the Rabbit licensing issue is averted
well.. I'm pushing here with a fast PERIOD setting
I like ION wm on slow machine
oh stepper is another issue entirely
Oh robin someone is now selling "those" cnc routers here
Might have missed that boat...but I didn't have a product...what else could I do?
This guy is selling mach2 or whatever stepper
as the control.
with the G200x . mach is going to be very kew;
I predict he won't get very far
well, didnt mach2 break lots?
anonimasu: been able to replicate the bug
anonimasu: yeah, but with external stepgen, its should be fine
but he does have iron in the US
but only under stressfull conditions
alex_joni: the mode bug?
anonimasu: can you try smthg?
try changing modes without homing
only enable the machine
and see if it locks up or not
makes no diff whatsoever
it's locked up when I changed modes in the middle of a program run
so I had to jog it back to zero..
to restart emc
no.. what I meant was at the beginning
and start changing modes
and see if it happens
I can tell you that it still happens..
I've never bothered to do it when paul & I were testing
ok.. I only got it when homed
increase your period..
and it should appear
it's 0.000030 now
with 0.000050 it's ok (the bug doesn't appear)
.25 does it always..
but 30 is almost unusable
it's a PII-233 here
3-4 mins for tkemc to pop up
[23:51:00] <les> http://www.petitt57.com/
and all the SW too
the specs suck.
X-Y-Z Working accuracy <0.02mm
We were discussing re engineering them.
.02....I doubt it!
Those machines needed servo emc
wait a sec... only 320lbs net weight?!
but until just a little while ago emc was too broken.
hell MY machien weights 80 lbs w/o motors or spindle
It's a diamond in the rough...some things are good...others horribly misengineered
my mill weighs somewhere around ~100kg
ya know... I would have bought one of these over what I have now.
It is very very light
it looks nice, but.. <0.02
it has everything on it.
anonimasu well, what do you want then?
Jymmm: > 0.01
I think it is highly likely there would be some problems.
anonimasu it says LESS THEN 0.02mm
You see, I have been talking to the manufacturer for a good while now
ah, wrong way.*bein tired*
les Oh, I dont doubt it has it's problems, but all in all it's a place to start and improve as needed while still being able to be productive
at least it can pay for the improvements itself
