101 edm recipies?
alpha... you have an edm available???
edm for dummies
I can't find them.
edm projects fr the under 5's
i have several available
dmessier. No. But there's a wire EDM place on clements rd, in pickering.
edm on 40 dollars a day....
i sank 'trodes in customers moulds to learn... i love it
I almost bought one ...
until someone warned me off the "moving table" type
i break them all day long....
traveling wire rules!!!
mdy.... that bites... ; (
actually i repair, modify and design them....
I didnt appreciate the moving table problems until they were explained to me
dmessier, did you need the number or something for them?
god awful website. http://www.altomax.ca/
gotta be somewhere now.
or at elast very soon.
cannot cut LARGE parts on a moving table....
Tim Hortons, selling my ipooh.
the workpiece tends to tip
can be a few thou out
the motors drives like to burn up....
mmm. that could apply to any machine
just got back from indy, i rased the wire machine for 30 inch z clearance, he cuts keyways in very tall cams....
6,000 lb cams
right .. I need to go and look for my leopard
yes, even i was impressed....
* robin_sz nods
not aa good thing to lose!!!
OK, must go, its rainig and his navigation skills are totally crap.
so no one knows the new emc2 website address?
hmmm - there isn't one. not sure if he got that point
Does anyone have any recommendations for lubrication of Nook acme scres & nut, and for the ways of a lathe or mill?
as in 5w30?
I got some of that this evening
* jmkasunich isn't very picky about lube
I use gear oil on ways
* Jymmm feels sorry for Mrs jmkasunich
I'd been using a teflon bearing light oil, but its turns into a black cake on the ways & drags like crazy after a day.
* jmkasunich launches a waterballon full of gear oil at Jymmm
* Jymmm counter-attacks wiht a case of flavored KY
* SWPadnos dicks
* SWPadnos ducks
KY Silk-E works pretty good :)
* Jymmm avoids Teflon PTFE like the plague
This is something 3M makes, looks like wattered down milk if you shake it up enough.
Yep, that be the stuff
But I think I'm getting schmardter
So I went out to TSC and got a pint of stp, and oil squirter and a 3 pack of lithium grease for my mini-gun
i got a gallon of mobil vactra, should last a lifetime
I left emc running the z from end to end 100 times to try and smooth things up a bit. I tried to do some peck drilling today, with a bit fresh from a drill doctor but it didn't have the cojones to push the drill bit
for light machines.. dont remember the viscosity number
Not even a 3/64" bit. I've got 3w30 penzoil too, buy it by the case
gene what are you drilling?
1/8" hot roll plate
way covers help also
hot roll has a lot of mill scale which is highly abrasive
usually people grind it off before machining
I got some signfoam sample - tough stuff
These new tables cover them selves fairly well, way better than the originals did.
Humm, the subject got changed somehow, or did I butt into the middle when I logged in
Can that scale be removed by a picking bath?
Can that scale be removed by a pickling bath?
yes i think
fenn: know a good formula?
er, vinegar and salt?
humm, cheap enough I guess, I'll have to try it.
ISTR there used to be an "OAKITE" product for that, needed to be boiled in it ISTR
It was used to prepare gun parts for slow rust blueing, worked good back in the 60's the last time I used it.
i have modified your nice new logo
did you find the .svg version?
for the icons of multilingual
did a german flag, + 1/4th of a brit flag
and remade the emc typo... but i dont like the version i did either
I guess I should put coolcncb5 on the cncgear website
i havent seen anything more than a penguin holding an endmill
or did I?
fenn: i put the svg and the source of all together online next week. ifyou want to i load the svg up
cncuser - where can I get coolcncb5.iso?
[02:56:44] <cncuser> http://cooltool.he.fdread.org/cncforum/coolcnc/coolcncb05.iso
put in every computer you meet
till now, everyone with at least 128mb of ram got a boot into graphical mode and could lanch axis
got 100% guistart till now :)
if anyone in her knows some feature backport for 2.4.26...please let me know
there's a mirror at http://www.cncgear.com/EMC/
I'm about to change it to the latest version
its the older version
I'm seeding it now ;)
give it about 2 minutes ;)
cncngear and liuxcnc are gogig to be hosted at you place ?
cncgear is my place ;)
and there's a possibility that linuxcnc will be moved to my hosting plan
I get about 2 TB of transfer per month, so I figured what the heck
kewl, only 51MB
and it's a liveCD, so you can boot and run
installation is optional
I've got about half of it, and I need to take a nap as this is my night to do a graveyard at the transmitter, so good night everybody & thanks
SWPadnos, host some prawns.
I prefer shrimp
prawns are like mini lobsters.
though I just got the taste of mackerel sushi, or pickled herring in cream sauce
I preferr good butterfish.
I like any of the tunas, or salmon, mackerel ....
bummer - I may have to go to the store and get some
I don't think I've ever had mackerel
salmon, tuna, catfish, lots of Chinese/asian fishes... but I don't know what the hell they'd be called in English.
even as sushi, it tastes almost pickled (it might be)
I love seafood.
I love giant prawns, and lobsters.
I love the texture
I'm a big seafood fan as well
you're in/near Toronto, right?
I know of Rodneys. :)
heh - we've discussed it before ;)
It's right besides For You Eyes Only. :)
never noticed that place
how can you not?
only been to Rodney's once or twice
I know another surf and turf... Angus beef, and oysters.
I could get lobster there too, but who wants lobster when youhave oysters!
and it's like 1/2 the price of Rodneys.
rodney's is good, but i'm not rich... anymore.
gonna watch movies. :)
cradek: ubuntu is great. With only one hiccough I got it working on this old laptop in an evening, well enough to rebuild emc2 and axis from CVS.
how old a laptop?
SWPadnos: 300MHz, 128MB RAM
that is old ;)
it's actually not bad for a little web browsing
I have ubuntu and xubuntu working on a couple old laptops of that vintage
it took about 11 minutes to compile emc2
that's a bit long
only twice what my enc machine takes
I pulled a neat little thin client box out of the trash, gonna try to put linux on it
11" x 8" x 2"
you should replace your laptop with one of these:
[05:43:32] <SWPadnos> http://www.m-techlaptops.com/specifications/mtechd900k.htm
in its last incarnation, this was a "thin client" -- booted, ran X and xvncviewer
the one I have has a Geode 266MHz x86 (Pentium equivalent)
no disks as built, but there's an IDE controller and connector on the board
and a slot for an additional RAM stick
and a PCI slot
that could make a nice mp3 server ;)
those need lots of disk don't they?
this thing has a pretty feeble power supply
depends on your CD collection
I'll power the disk and cdrom externally for the install
then just use the disk (which is a laptop drive, low power)
but since you can get single disks of 300G or thereabouts for PATA, it shouldn't be a big problem
oh, btw, I did the ubuntu server install, then added x-window-system-core, emc2 packages, and build-deps for emc2 and axis, and it's still under a gig of disk used
oh, apparently, the 500G drives are still available in PATA
that's not bad
oh, and firefox
so 1G disk (or flash?) is plenty for an ubuntu/emc2 station
a 2G cruzer mini is around $50, I think
I gotta say, ubuntu runs way snappier on this thing than I remember redhat 8 running
I wonder if the various speedups they're touting for the next release will make it noticeably better
You mean the gnome ones? I'm not running anything gnome on this system.
icewm, urxvt, firefox, axis
ah - that would make it moot ;)
jepler: you still here?
what exactly is "x-window-system-core"?
I imagine it's X, without kde or gnome (or any other WM, probably)
maybe TWM or something
Description: X Window System core components
This metapackage provides the essential components for a standalone
workstation running the X Window System. It provides the X libraries, an X
server (except on the S/390 architecture), a set of fonts, and a group of
basic X clients and utilities.
then you have to add a window manager and other goodies?
you don't happen to have a list of the packages you wound up installing do you?
no, I don't.
why do you want that?
so I could do the same thing
If you were in the same situation, you could also apt-get install x-window-system-core
yes, but thats just the start isn't it?
hmmm - it takes < 1G of HD, it may be possible to install such a beast on the farm
At a guess, I installed: x-window-system-core icewm urxvt firefox cvs
plus ran cradek's script
SWP: that's only one of the places I would like a lightweight install
plus ran apt-get build-dep emc2 emc2-axis
oh, I had to add python2.4-tk
otherwise axis didn't actually run
I recognize most of those, what is urxvt?
(that'll be fixed in the next debs)
urxvt is a terminal
it's fast and right, unlike xterm and gnome-terminal
er, I guess the package is called rxvt-unicode
I also changed sources.list to include universe; I don't think icewm was available without that
Where's our resident chemist when ya need him!
oh, I thought you weretalking about my mother
SWPadnos your mom is a chemist?
Jymmm is now known as Red70sShow
Red70sShow is now known as Jymmm
actually, both my parents are
got a PhD in physical chemistry each
Does either of them specialize in polymers?
well, I think my father did a polymerization of something for his doctoral thesis
Well, polymerization is a tad different
or maybe that was my mother. she did a "something" of 1,1-difluoroethane
anyway - my mother would be better, since she used to test paints for the highway department
Heh, I think that's on the ban list now
I asume that's the kind of polymer you're talking about?
That's exactly what I needed info on ... paint
Usually if someone is familure with polymers they know this subject matter.
well, she's the expert, and I sure as hell hope she's asleep ;)
Let me do some research (doubt I'll find what I need), then I might hit you up
ok. I can always ask her some questions
it makes her feel better if she can help me out, too
It be more link... here's these stack of pages, what ya think
well, she's not too internet-savvy, if you catch my drift
does she have an email address?
though she's been proggramming since before I was born
yes, but she can't read PDFs, unless Acrobat 3 can read them ;)
Well I contacted one mfg, even spoke to someone in the testing lab - didn't have any advice for me.
Hey, I have acrboat for DOS, but I'm talking all text.
what's the trouble?
paint not sticking?
MDF absorbs paint like a sponge (actually worse than a sponge), but I can get BLACK paint to coat 'okey'
Even metalic paint is absorbed.
hmmm. have you tried various types of primer?
There are two other materials out there MDO (not really what I need) and Medtex which is a exterior grade of MDF, but is a logisitics and price pita
bigger fibers also, I'd imagine
I've tried 5 coats of paint - no good.
Well, when I spoke to the lab... it's a matter of denisty
the SURFACES are far denser, than the core.
right, so you could paint the outside, but not once you've machined it
right, nor the edges either
yep - the porosity gets you
But here's the thing...
SignFoam is great stuff... but VERY expensive.
MDF is cheap, easily available, machines well, just sucks at accepting paint.
and kinda smooth/shiny, right?
Most MDF is laminated - so that's a useless process in maching
err I mean veneered
then used in cainet making
I wonder if some sort of baking would help
not that MDF is all that wet in the first place
not once you machine it
the only solution is spray or dip
I was thinking of baking before painting
dipping the final product seems a waste and that the MDF would absorb far more than needed - almost satuarting it
baking it would dry it out even more
yep, but that's not necessarily a bad thing
only if oyu want 17 coats of paint on it
do you use spray paint or brush/roller?
spray so it gets in the machined area
ok. you could try just holding the nozzle further from the MDF
There are many forums out there that have this same issue.
it's a well known issue that I learned the hardway
I suppose that's why signfoam is so expensive ;)
even professional cabinet shops have this issue it seems.
Les bought some... I think he paid $1400
for ONE sign
maybe he bought a spare too
but that stuff doesn't absorb any water, does it? (the signfoam)
it's paintable, meldew and rot resistant, machinable, lightweight, and guarnteed for like 10 years
HD polyurethane - it won't absorb any water
HDU not HDPU
so you can scratch the sign, leave it out in a storm, and it'll be fine the next day
Like HDPE, but polyurethane
MDF will be a bloated hulk
Anyhow... far too expensive
But if I can somehow get MDF to accept paint, now we're talking...
are you doing infoor or outdoor signs?
cheap enough in sheet form, available everywhere, machines well,
Mostly indoor. But if I can come up with something that'll allow MDF to accept paint, might be able to take it a step forther and let it be usable for outdoor use.
scratches would be an issue outdoors
That would just be iciing on the cake
the substrate is still MDF, after all
but PU is pretty storng
seal the spinge, then coat with anything you want
so, my idea is to hold the nozzle firther away, so that the paint is a little more dry when it hits the MDF
wet enough to stick, dry enough to clog the pores
but you cant get into thte tiny details
that may not work with an air sprayer though, I'm not sure if the particles are as small as with a can
30 degree vcarving
enmill 1/2" deep
you wouldn't want to dip that either
spray is about it...
Now Les told me of some stuff that you mix with water fro the HW store and it used to laminate MDF together
I'd imagine that almost any kind of spray glue would do it
not that I know of any kjinds of spray glue ;)
I'm thinking that maybe there might be a oil or alcohol based variant that'll either clog the pores till dried or dry quick enough to leave a layer behind
like when you spear elmers glue on your hand and let it dry
then peel off like skin =)
I think that you don't want anything volatile under the paint
unless you let something like alcohol evaporate entirely before painting
I'm just pulling things out of my ass here... but there has to be SOMETHING that I can spray and seal this crap
shit might work
as long as you're pulling from your ass
it'll mix with the urine in the MDF
that's not a joke.
some urea might work
But if your mom tested road paint... that is some tough shit.
it dries fast, durable
yep, and it has reflective glass beads in it
and sticks to gawd only knows what on the road
but it's very very thick
remember, it looks flat on the pebble/asphalt road
yep, but I bet yo ushe knows of other things too
possibly. I'd have to figure out how to explain MDF to her though ;)
or she knows some vendor from some mfg and can ask all the right questions.
she worked there in the 1970's
I don't think she knows anyone any more ;)
ok. it's late, and Norton Antivirus is running. it's time for me to go to bed
how would you describe MDF to a chemist who knows nothing of engineering, and hasn't been in Home depot, ever?
SWPadnos: The PDF's on this page should give the spec
[07:02:25] <Jymmm> http://www.sierrapine.com/products/mdf/SierraPineMDF/default.asp
ok. I can work with that
[07:03:26] <Jymmm> http://www.sierrapine.com/products/mdf.htm
Also the MSDS should help explain the materials in MDF
I was thinking of that
Also most MDF is made with formaldehyde
which type do you generally get?
anything off the shelf.
Medex, Medite, Medite 3D, ...?
ah, SierraPine MDF ...
no no medex is special stuff... stick witht he MDF listings specifically
you may want an epoxy based paint or primer
I wonder if you can get it hot enough for powder-coating techniques
There was a question I had... why does paint use heavy metals in it
I have no idea
used to be lead, then magnesium, and remium it's titanium.
because the lead producers wanted more customers?
(that's why it was added to gasoline)
no lead in gas was to save valve seats =)
magnesium is hardly a heavy metal
except that it doesn't do that
i know that cobalt helps linseed oil to evaporate faster
SWPadnos see what she says about minerals in paint and their purpose.
ok. time to go to bed. I'll see what I can get for you.
SWPadnos Thanks I appreciate it, G'Night!
if I think of it, and she hasn't annoyed me too much by that time
see you - good night
SWPadnos is now known as SWP_Away
I only use boiled linseed oil, but that's about it
i think all the other heavy metals get in there because of the cobalt
Well, There had to be a reason why lead was put in paint long ago.
Now it's titanium in the premium paints. But I dont know why though.
white and yellow lead were pigments in old paint
titanium dioxide is a bright white pigment
yellow lead is really cool looking
it's hard to capture really vibrant colors on film
I know they use Silver in film
look who forgot to tur of his computer
giacus is now known as giacus_afk
alex_joni, hehe, me
damn, yesterday my motorbike got rammed two time whle i was away :( i just tried to ix it but a hammer would not do :(
womans are like devils !
cncuser: give me the hammer please
the biggest you have :(
i just got one small woodcraft hammer
[13:23:16] <giacus_afk> http://www.torchmate.com/aptsize.jpg
whats that thing ?
mini plasma .. doh
wood rails ?
totally crazy :P
that is neet. has a water tank for sparks just like the real ones ;)
giacus_afk: did you e-mail me the translation updates? I didn't get any e-mail from you yet, unless it got stuck in a spam folder.
hi alex_joni, jepler
alex_joni: i remembered we allready did chat today ;)
more or less
btw, I mirrored b05
nice :), thanks
did you try it ?
nope.. got not time right now :(
yup.. leaving tomorrow for a week (some welding fair)
still at work preparing stuff
hehe, where ?
if you ever get a chance.. don't go there
have been close but not there
bulgaria. sofia and black sea
well, closer the vienna ;)
more close ;)
I've been to Varna in Bg
but not to sofia, closeby though (Montana) a few times
i think i remmeber mointana, its on the way from sofia to burgas
it's before sofia, but yes (if you came through yugoslavia)
although from vienna I'd rather go to croatia ;)
ok, i mixed it up :) but i remember it clearly for its unusual easy to read name compared to the cyrilic citynames :)
you should try Istria, if you haven't been there already
cncuser: heh, that is the 4th name of that city in the last 100 years ;)
alex_joni: i did a tour... vienna -> slowenia -> croatia(istria)->srbia -> bulgaira :) with a big mercedesbus
yes, weve been robbed 2 times. but it was fun after all :)
i love the balkan :)
no, dont think ive been there
that's very nice too, people actually use EUR over there
those poor souls
as for bulgaria. i hope they dont get to the eu to soon, the people are poor enough there now. and prices of basic food almos tripple every year.
same here ;)
alex_joni: yes, i heard. its a shame. there are somany people at the country that dont have any income at all.
so you got 10 goats an a donkey + a small hutt. get whater out of the hole in the garden ( i call it hole because the water is full of nitrits and other nonhealthy stuff) ... the eu has no supportprograms in a social way.... all they do is economypushing.
well... bad world. bad people. bad bad
i think i go to bed again
giacus_afk is now known as giacus
jepler: I sent an email to you at unpy.net, btw file is this: http://giacus.altervista.org/it.po
some term is ambigous: visualizza, mostra, vista ..
as show, view, display ..
I will wait the new menu you and cradek are working on, to get it better
For now, should be enough
keys accelleretar are also configured and working ok
I also changed some term like 'storia' his mean was wrong
ther'e no IT equivalent for history ..
Storia mean Story not History
So, LOg comandi is better
as Reload mean ricarica not riapre as was ..
riapre mean reopen
carica is load
different between carica ed apri is the same from load and open
the think I dont like, I had to specify 'Vista' term many times ..
Vista frontale, vista laterale..
View top, View side ..
No solution for that
I dont touched the "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1\n"
UTF8 maybe is better, but Im not sure, check it from yourself
also changed axis one,two,three with 1-2-3, should be more readable ..
I prefer numbers to words where is possible :)
[16:41:43] <giacus> http://www.vmware.com/products/server/
seems nice and free for webmaster's :)
i am reading the emc1 handbook, and i dont find the explonation for DIR_INDEX and STEP_INDEX...what is this nomber...the parallel port pin nomber?
fogl: what emc are you using?
fogl: I'm rushing away, but usually it's like this:
linksp Xstep parport.0.pin-03-out
linksp Xdir parport.0.pin-02-out
linksp Ystep parport.0.pin-05-out
linksp Ydir parport.0.pin-04-out
linksp Zstep parport.0.pin-07-out
linksp Zdir parport.0.pin-06-out
last brain dead install
fogl: sorry I can't help you more..
check the wiki.linuxcnc.org
* alex_joni goes away
fogl: keep complaining in here.. other should be around too, to help you
i will, thank you alex
SWP_Away is now known as SWPadnos
SWPadnos is now known as SWP_Away
oh no SWP_Away!
haven't talked to my mother yet (thank the lord)
WEll, I haven't talked to her either
don't tempt me to give her your number
lol I have callerid
but you wouldn't recognize her name
it's not the same as mine
any of mine
ok. now I'm really not here. see you
cool, jeff set it up so that if you untar axis under emc2/src and configure for rip, it will build and install axis automatically when you make
thanks for the note about the compile farm slot, the disk was at 97% full
jmkasunich: no problem..
comme si comme ca
dmessier: c'est ok
mais pas perfect ;)
no ones life IS
butim workin' on it
my 15 yr old son just left with 3 mighty fine lookin' young ladies... he's a chip off the old block for sure... ; )
also 15? or older?
older...lookin for sure...
one had a car..
hrmm.. that's ok.. I guess ;)
he has condoms...
might be a bit young though
and nows how to use the.... no glove no love...
never too young for protection
hes taller than me
can someone please tell me what is the DIR_INDEX nad STEP_INDEX in emc.ini
is this the parallel port pin nomber?
fogl: yes, it should be
but you should have more than one of those
but for the x axis it should be 1 and 2...but by the default there is 0 and 1...and it works fine
i installed the BDI 4.38
fogl: I am very sorry to say that I don't know enough about emc-bdi internals to tell you more
and this was in emc.ini
It may mean bits 0 and 1 on the parallel port data register.
jepler: it never worked like that.. always the pin number
I'm 99% sure it refers to bit numbes in a byte (like jepler said)
but then again P1=D0, P2=d1, etc
and who would know this for shure...
fogl: most of us are developers and users of emc2, and don't know the details of bdi4emc anymore.
is emc2 operational?
emc2 works great
for everyday use on stepper machines
(that's where my experience is; I think it's good for servo machines too)
ok...i will install emc2 then
i will use servos
you can use emc2 on bdi4 if you want, but I suggest the method described here: http://timeguy.com/cradek/emc/ubuntu
there is a note in wiki that BDI and emc2 doesnt work any more because of some changes
[19:21:35] <fogl> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl/emcinfo.pl?BDI-4_38_Compile_EMC2
it still works (emc2 on bdi4) but the instructions are just out of date.
that's one reason I suggest ubuntu
yup, I am running emc2 on BDI4-38 too, probably I forgot to update that file ;)
you can get emc2 without compiling anything
we need someone with BDI-4.38 to update that page
* jmkasunich looks at alex
* cradek points at alex
* alex_joni looks at ..
* alex_joni looks away
* alex_joni looks at his bathtub
alex_joni is very clean already
lol, don't assume ;)
I can't smell you from here, you're clean enough
I loaded a robot on a truck today
fog1: sorry, we get distracted easily ;-)
there is nothing written about realtime linux at ubint emc2 instructions
anyway, if you haven't been using BDI-4.38 long aren't attached to it, the ubuntu approach is the way to go
fogl: you don't need to worry
fogl: The .sh script you execute will install a realtime kernel
no compiling needed, there are packages that install everything very smoothly, and even automatic notification of updates
i will try this
Please let us know how it goes
fogl: if it doesn't live up to our advertisements, please let us know
note that ubuntu will replace your BDI-4.38 installation
we'll be a lot better equipped to help with emc2 than with bdi4emc.
save any important files in your home directory frist
jepler: i just attempted to intall axis on emc2 (testing) and the install bombed.
Roguish: OK -- which axis version? What's the error message? Did you install the build requirements?
the lastest, greatest: 1.1.1rc3.tar.bz2
the newest is 1.1.3. http://axis.unpy.net/downloads/01141952313
bombed with: ...../src/.tmp/rs274.o: No such file or directory
Does one of the pages on axis.unpy.net still indicate that 1.1.1rc3 is the newest version?
which one? I'll fix it.
[19:57:33] <Roguish> http://axis.unpy.net/index.cgi/downloads
does not list any files attached to it.
huh. I see that.
.. hold on, putting the distribution files back
OK, please try downloading 1.1.3 again
wow, there they are.
Did you think that 1.1.1rc3 was the newest because it was at the bottom of the page? Newer downloads are at the top of the page, like a blog.
i just did not see them on the page indicated.
hurray!!!!! thanks for the assistance.
Does anyone know why "http://mirrors.neuron.com/emc-bdi/apt/sarge
updates extras" does not work?
Roguish: thanks for letting me know about the problem with 1.1.3!
bpmw: You might check the bdi4emc wiki and mailing list .. I think that the new official location of the bdi4 packages is on ourproject.org somewhere.
OK Thanks jepler i'll try that.
is there any intention of upgrading to the latest classicladder? v0.7.4, 2005-08-16
I don't think so, CL needed some non-trivial changes to work with emc
is it the best solution at this time? anything else around?
best solution for what?
for the plc portion of the machine control.
MatPLC is probably a bit more capable but not emc compatable.
i'm trying a mesa 5i20 and would like to have most (or all) of the plc in it.
PeteV did a nice job integrating cl with HAL
I've got a mesa 5i20 here and cl should work with all of it.
the PLC logic in the m5i20, or just using the m5i20 for the PLC I/O?
I've just twiddled the second 50 pin header. I've got the mesa testing board.
oh, i'm not critisizing, just the fpga is so powerful and cpu independent.
yeah, but putting the FPGA logic in there is a non-trivial task
Oh. You want to write another fpga code.
Whole different world.
on a par with writing something like CL
I can't imagine why one would want to put the ladder in fpga.
unless you need outrageously fast PLC response (sub-millisecond), seems like overkill, let CL do it
It is so much nicer to watch and work with as a part of HAL.
yeah, CL can display the ladder live, and you see contact and coils changing state
no way, i'm not a programmer, just a struggling mechanical type. didn't mean to start a row.
np. Have you had a chance to look at demo_step_cl?
Roguish: no row ;-)
yes, digging my way through all of it. just got the 5i20 up and am trying to figure where everything is. i'm creating a brief cross-reference for phycical pins to signals. it' s not intuitively obvious from the current pin list.
got a lot of help from SWPadnos a while ago.
Roguish, I'll look at mine in a few minutes. Building a new system now.
thanks, gotta run out for awhile
03cradek * 10emc2/src/emc/task/emccanon.cc:
Fixed helix/rotational moves. According to the kramer doc:
Rotational axis motion along with helical XYZ motion has no known
applications, but is not illegal.
cradek: last one :)
cradek: did you get a proper torture test for GXYZA?
jepler: well, it just bombed.
jepler: the backplot doesn't match the preview at all (of course)
jepler: oops, switching to mm readout also multiplies A by 25.4
cradek: oops! somebody should do something!

PRICE 58 USD UNIQUE PRICE 1900 USD
wtah's the price ?
what mean unique ?
alpha1125 is now known as A-L-P-H-A
mmm found maybe
unique price is foe a unique piece
a template for a website 1900 $
giacus: not that much
if unique mean what I think ..
only one in the world
alex just went to sleep
some news ?
trying to get emc2 ready for release
im bussy with out big machine at the moment
we got a granite stone. 2,5x1,5x0,3m :-)
was there some discussion about a EMC Fest this year ???
its is going to be a Roland's CNC workshop in may
(where the Mazak project was last year)
there's a website, don't have the URL handy right now tho
i think i have sean it
Can you get a ticket, Martin?
hm, i don't think so
a programmers fest would be more interesting
we have our own cnc workshop at the moment
this is an all in one fest
the EMC folks will have an area, with net access, computers
and we'll be able to stay as late as we want
I did a near-all-nighter last year
far better for programming than NIST where we had to leave at 7pm
i think i would decide a week before like last year :-)
Good plan. You don't sound very German doing that though.
the job i had until last summer was much better to make such things
thats my style of traveling
i hate to plan vacation half a year before
All the in laws there plan a year ahead.
and with my new job i have also to plan 3 month or so before. better 6
Well we'd sure like to see you this year. If you can make it.
maybe i have finished the hardware for the mesa card, then i can send you some samples for testing
but, i had no time to do anything the last month
03jmkasunich * 10emc2/tcl/bin/setupconfig.tcl: Removed setupconfig.tcl. It's main function of selecting a config to run is now done by pickconfig, and the other function of copying configs can be done using normal file/directory manipulation tools.
HI Guys, just a quick question, can I do an apt-get and get the new 184.108.40.206-magma kernal if my install is based on "adeos"?
giacus is now known as giacus_afk
Hey Lawrence how things in Bc.?
not bad... very nice day athe moment
was out pruning the shrubery
sweet, it's been snowing in mb. all day.
my next chore is to get some complex math routines running on a PIC.
good luck with that!
well we had snow a couple of days ago, but it only lasted for a few hours... about 5cm worth
I'm just try to uddate my emc install
mountains sure like nice though... local ski hills have over 500cm of snow right now! glad I dont have to shovel the parking lot
Can't say im very fond of the mountains, had a bad experience about 15 years ago.
I would convert to a Ubuntu install then get the pakages for the kernel and emc2 via cradeks instructions on the wiki
I am running them here... very easy to get a system up and running
IM partial to the debian flavor!
ubuntu is a debian derivative... not much difference, but the packages dont mingle well
I am looking forward to the Ubuntu release next month.... it is supposed to have all the new gnome/gtk improvements
Oh, I'm running Bdi4.20 with Emc2. Spent all day doing apt-get updates. I figured I would upgrade evrything as I just moved my mill into new shop.g
emc2/axis install from source isnt that bad either... I am running an old P200 on the machine so I try and avoid compiling kernels and such!
My wife was sick of me taking over the garage, She could'nt park here car inside :(
you know... my double garage has NEVER had a car in it.... I built the house over 17 years ago!
good thing I met my wife after I had the garage full.
I don't mind the compiling, instructions seem to be pretty good. I just need to know if I can use Magma kernel on Bdi 4.20 install
bpmw: give it a try :)
I just celebrated 16th anniversary my self
I think if you install the kernel and build emc/axis from source it should be ok
Ok I'll give it a whirl. will be back later with results.
