cradek, Just thought these photos might be useful to you --> http://content.techrepublic.com.com/2346-10877_11-1453-1.html
thanks, looks like nice photos
cradek, Yeah, I find that old picws help sometimes when working on projects =)
Jymmm, know of a php array function that would remove duplicates?
03cradek 07HEAD * 10emc2/src/emc/rs274ngc/ (interp_convert.cc rs274ngc_errors.cc rs274ngc_return.hh): probing: allow rotary probe, remove minimum length restriction
A-L-P-H-A, does nto php have hashes? you can't get duplicates in a hash
robin_sz, we'll... it does.
I've got another method of doing it... messy, but works.
search the array, before inserting it.
ummm, as you say, messy. especially when it gets bigger ...
im afraid its screaming "hash" at me know ;)
Hi all i am in the process of installing a encoder on my lathe and im trying to find out wich physical parallel port pins i need to use
I think the naswer is "none"
you need some sort of motion card with an encoder input
sorry for spindle
to do treading
what software are you using, exactly ...
not sure of the build
I have instantly forgotten who exactly wrote all the lateh support .. it is someone regualr on here though
the answer is certainly in the HAL config file though
i think cradek i was talking with him the other day
the hal file i have the spindle is simulated so it dosn't give me much info
I must admit I had no idea it could be sync'd off the parallell port .. most interesting
harty: you can choose any three input pins to be the spindle encoder. Write a hal file that connects those pins to an 'encoder' component. Look at the nist-lathe.hal file, "Beginning of thread releated stuff". Contrary to the next comment, it all works properly.
thanks jepler will take a look
hi 2 all
got a rare question
we rarely have answers
im trying to built a drumphoto plotter
that does sound unusual
:) now i have to convert bmp-tiff or gerber files to laser switch
I don't know anything about gerber files
03cradek 07HEAD * 10emc2/configs/nist-lathe/nist-lathe.hal: clarifications
roel01: Jon Elson built one, but I don't know if he is making the design public.
roel01: see http://www.pico-systems.com/photoplot.html
i allready got lots off info from Jon
it works with a pdma card (isa) rare to find these days
les_w: are you still looking for an airplane ?
hmm he's not even here, lallalalala

toooo quiet am I really connected?
OK... so can anyone tell me where to find docs/source for the adaptive feed stuff done at fest this year?
dave: I don't think there is any documentation
dave: there is a hal pin, I think it's motion.adaptive-feed, that takes a float from 0.0-1.0
I think there is some in my the dallur sample config ..
adaptive feed is turned on and off with g50/g51
I've searched for M50/M51 and not found anything.
mac says he gets motion for a bit and then it stops or slows down. I need to know how it is supposed to work.
I just said how it works ^^^
do you have more questions after reading that?
yes... pos voltage give pos feed proportional to Vin and conversely?
the hal pin takes 0.0 (stop) to 1.0 (full specified feed)
how you hook that up to your analog inputs is up to you, there is lots of flexibility in hal
thanks ... that may give me enough to test with.
great, you're welcome
but then I'm a dummy os I often need a full roadmap. :-(
it's hard to describe all of hal in a few sentences like that, but for that there is good documentation to study
Pete should test an simple edm today or at least soon
at workshop several left excited about emc/edm but I haven't heard any success stories yet
maybe they will come soon!
mac is still working on wire and adaptive feed.... he has been traveling a lot which cuts into the devel time
I have most of the hardware built to do an edm.
Pete has a straight analog comparator (well two) almost up and running ... where one comp is too_close
and the other is too_far... and that simple adjusts the ram
I will either go with Pete's approach to go adc for the too_far/too_close.
the long term is to have a pulse system running under emc
gotta run... it is supposed to go 105 here today. ugh!

cool, jepler's parport control byte input patch works on my emc computer
hi Chris Hi Ray
What you doing these days tomp?
finishing more fire sensors, got docs on ett8255 in english, a spansish 8 axis cnc for edm, staying alive
staying alive is good!
www.inavcnc.com, i'm in the movies
and retrofitting some Elox's, got 3kw motors from automation direct, dang heavy,to replace hydarulics
tomp, want a site redesign to help out the company image? www.firstfire.ca :)
gawd you oughhta read the operators manuals
better ywt the inter=grators manuals
I hate reading through manuals... but I do anyways.
the movies were meant to be reports not press releases
tomp, check out the porfolio section of my site, if you're interested, give me a shout.
it hasnt loaded yet...
loaded here (not from cache) fine. :(
though the site is really really uncharacteristically slow
got it. I had an idea... put the machines & a web cam up in Barcelona to avoid all the crappy travel to orient... any thoughts?
like a tele-op demo mode?
tomp, you'd be hard pressed to get any alignment accuracy
unless you've got a super macro lense.
uh, I was thinking to demo a machne tool over web, let users see how easy it was to implement a contorl into thier existing hdwr.
but thats all way off topic, I'll look thru your site tho, nice look.
RayH, what are you up to?
Sitting home working on a couple of projects.
is emc going to be at IMTS? :-)
Not that I know. You going?
just visiting, showing is big $$$
And the third level basement across the street is not the most attractive.

my 'last job' :D
how are the holidays going ?
oh.. I also seen Bob Dylan concert on 20 jule :)
giacus: that page worked pretty bad
hi ValarQ, why ?
giacus: the links on the page seems to be bad
[19:41:35] <giacus> http://www.giacus.org/photo/hobby/surici2/img002.jpeg
strange, it work for me
btw, fishing a bit in these days..
planning a night fishing for tomorrow
look at the page source !
album generator is gthumb
or ecmascript or whatever it should be called
uhm.. you're right then
ValarQ: right the link (only the first) seems to be broken :(
I should check a bit of things around my website and update few pages..
got no time right now! this is time for fun
wonderful weather in these weeks
