03cradek 07HEAD * 10documents/scratch.txt: diffs?
email diffs done
I still haven't gotten the first one
(first email.... damn isp)
you won't get any
oh, you redirected to you for testing?
#+ Base task period, in secs - this is the fastest thread in the machine
BASE_PERIOD = 0.000050
#- Servo task period, in secs - will be rounded to an int multiple of BASE_PERIOD
SERVO_PERIOD = 0.001000
#- Trajectory Planner task period, in secs - will be rounded to an
# integer multiple of SERVO_PERIOD
TRAJ_PERIOD = 0.010000
hey a paste
dave-e: I'm glad you got a network connection out there
dave-e: you need to convert those numbers to nsec
he's doing that
BASE_PERIOD = 50000
* alex_joni shuts up :)
problem: too many copies of the same files in different directorys.... not editing the ones he thought he was editing
perhaps a BASE_FREQ=20000 might be easier to undestand
cradek: is the .emcrc file in the release?
or is it just in head?
the config parser could mung it as it went along
seems like it's not
also I notice it doesn't work right in head
ok, that explains why dave has no emcrc
hes getting something really strange
it starts with my default selection scrolled up off the display
he's in /home/dave/something, and after attempting to run he winds up in home/dave/emc2/myconfigs/stg
myconfigs doesn't even appear in the picker
myconfigs is bogus, he should delete it
myconfigs might be the only place his custom config is stored... so no delete unless backed up
but nothing has ever used that path, unless he specified it on the commandline
thats why I'm so mystified
I'm having him check .emcrc
but there won't be one
mv em2/myconfigs backup
should show "configs"
should show at least "stg"
should show your ini file(s) and hal files, including core-servo.hal
cp ~/backup/core_servo.hal ~/emc2/configs/stg/core_servo.hal
the gateway machine to cvs.linuxcnc.org had a little glitch, but all's well now.
diff /etc/emc2/sample-configs/stg.stg.ini ~/emc2/configs/stg/stg_inch.ini
diff /etc/emc2/sample-configs/stg/stg.ini ~/emc2/configs/stg/stg_inch.ini
I made a mistake the first time

[01:14:11] <dave-e> http://pastebin.com/691489
diff /etc/emc2/sample-configs/stg/ ~/emc2/configs/stg/
that will diff all the files

didn't mean to check in this hack that shows synced moves in a different
color, but we might want it later anyway when axis does something smart
cradek you still around?
not for long
it's pretty late...
gee. I wonder why ;_0
were you running on stepper or sym or servo when you did the axis plot?
do you still get an arc you don't expect?
runs fine on stepper....
but not on servo
wow, that's very strange then
I'm beginning to suppect it needs more precision
yes it's probably something like that, but I'm surprised it's different for servo
I'm going to try more significant figures tomorrow and see what happens.
is it exactly that same code you sent me?
yes... just a couple thou more lines of it
maybe tomorrow I'll try it with jmk's simulated servo configuration
but you're probably right about the precision
oh. good idea.. talk to you tomorrow or when I find out more.
let us know what you get
will do have a good night.

Hi to all from Italy!

Could somebody help me with emc2 axis homing?
what are you trying to do?
i want to home to switches from Gcode, but i didn't find how.
homing is not done from gcode
homing is done by pressing the home button on the GUI
(that is what starts the homing process)
the actual process depends on things that you set in your ini file
by default pushing the home button simply sets the current position as "home"
yes, i've try and it works fine, is possible to send the "home" command from a custom Mcode?
I don't think so
I only know the low level stuff
if it didn't home correctly from the GUI button I could help you
but making it home from g-code I don't know that part
From the gui it works fine, but sometimes i forgot ;)
actually it might be possible with emcsh, but I don't know enough to be sure
its also very late here, time for me to sleep
thank you for your help
not much help, sorry
emc2 is great
if you post your question on the emc-users mailing list you'll probably get an answer in 24 hours or less
ok i will do

can one get logger_aj to output earlier logs?
oh, I figured it out. pity logger_aj joined so late
sigh.. why is ^w close? that doesnt make any sense
is EMC in need of a new splashscreen (is the existsing one is old/outdated and so on)?
i mentioned it one time and nobody really seemed interested much
heh, I guess that's understandable though, if one takes into account the audience that EMC is made for (compared to the gimp or another program like that)

I made some progress on a THC driver for emc2
It's starting to work better :)
So if you here of somebody wanting to set up a torch height controller you can direct them to me.
I had a bizare thing today with emc2, after a program was done, I got strange values on XYZ. After setting new g54 offsets I could run again. and then back to the same strange values. Any ideas? (If it persists Ill get back to emc-devel)
maybe the program changes coordinate systems and one has unexpected offsets set?
you could check your var file to be sure
ok... I'll do that later...
03swpadnos 07HEAD * 10documents/lyx/Hal_Introduction.lyx:
Miscellaneous spelling and grammar corrections.
Added several new-ish features to the halcmd section
Miscellaneous corrections to various component descriptions
SWPadnos: can you make the pdf and update the one in emc2/docs?
hmmm - the pdf file just jumped in size by 300k. maybe I need to use a different output filter
no clue here
which did you use?
not specifically dvipdfm or pdflatex
I think JMK uses pdflatex
ok. I'll try that one
I wonder if this one has thumbnails or something
or maybe embedded fonts
03swpadnos 07HEAD * 10documents/lyx/Hal_Introduction.lyx: missed one oscilliscope
ok. that did it
hi SWPadnos :)
one day, I may try to see what the difference in the generated pdfs is
diff might be the wrong tool there
eyeballs may work
03swpadnos 07HEAD * 10emc2/docs/Hal_Introduction.pdf: Update pdf to match the documents module, with miscellaneous spelling/grammar corrections
I don't think I have a TESTING checkout - can someone else copy the pdf over?
When you have rough cut lumber (like redwood fencing), how are you suppose to smooth it out typically? Sanding? Planer? something else?

Jymmm: using an eco-blaster ?
I meant something likt this http://www.ibix.it/blaster_specialcleaning_english/eco_blasters/ecoblaster_ibix9f2.htm
- Because working pressure can be adjusted from 0.2 bar to 8/9 bar the machine can be adapted to the type of surface being cleaned (steel, aluminium, wood..
but I'm not sure it would work nice for that :)
depend on the hand who drive it ..
that's more of a cleaning device, not a surface preparation device
a planer, followed by sanding is the most common, I believe
for small stuff, you can use a jointer/planer
then a sander, if necessary
I dont have a jointer/planer, the problem is no storage for one.
I have a palm sander I use, what about a belt sander (large surface area)?
that'll work if it's really flat (or you want it to be).
not so much flat as much as smooth.... I'll be there for days trying to use my palm sander and 45 sheets later =)
* bill20r3 watches http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7613453617
This is what I have --> http://www.makita.co.nz/_images/products-large/BO4553-L.jpg
belt sanders will miss the low-spots, if it's pretty flat you should be find
* Jymmm bids $100
I'm hoping they'll stay cheap since they dont have the rails with them.
Hmmm. I thought when you remove the trucks the bearing would fall out?
this looks SO wicked http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=30749
doesn't look like you can sand with the flat , just the end part.
no clue... just every thime I see it makes me think of some midevil torture device =)
do they make variable speed belt sanders and would it make a difference?
I dont really know, I dont have a belt sander.
LOL Makita belt sander... $99 new at sears, $80 refurbed at HF
ah, they DO make variable speed
should not be difficult to get that
for small jobs I use this: http://www.bricoshop.it/details.asp?prodid=9096&cat=1202&path=1190,1202
by hand, of course
giacus: It's in italian!
sorry.. I've no idea how it is called in english :s
steel wool maybe ..
giacus on rough-cut lumber?! Humie don't play that!
I've to find a machine using that yet :(
would be nice
using the material I showed
what material? I only saw steel wool
that's for giving a patina on a finich using 0000 steel wool
K, i'm probably missing to understand the term you used
looking .. http://woodworking.about.com/od/woodworkingglossary/g/rough_cut.htm
is that ?
rough cut 2" x 8" --> http://www.realcountrylife.com/images/Web%20New%20Coop/lg%20new%20coop_04.jpg

err rough cut

can someone tell me if G38.2 is supposed to work in emc2? Which of the G8x canned cycles work?
Jymmm: I'd like to know how work this http://cgi.ebay.it/PIALLA-PER-LEGNO-MAKITA-1902-K-PROFESSIONALE_W0QQitemZ7615347234QQcategoryZ20782QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
but again, sorry, isn't english :(
giacus: It's a hand planer
could be faster ?
giacus: Yes, but can remove too much material easily too.
giacus: If I have to buy another power tool, I'd like to have mor ethan one use for it. A belt sander can remove a LOT of material.
from my understanding
I have more need in finishing tools than shaping ones.
giacus plus you have to replace blades too =)
yeah, I know ..
I like this http://www.pmu.it/imgprod/levigatrice.JPG
or something like that
someebay price seems nice
