do any of the component parts of emc use calculus?
I'm trying to find something interesting that my class will apply to
hanging weights between the supports of the golden gate bridge with a stell cable doesn't cut it anymore
hesus ... 300m a minute?!
god damn this rj45 connector, it's lack of a tab, and it's location under my desk
the cat and dog are bad enough without my own feet
I could use the wire-feed on it
...wire feed on tig?
it's not a tig
just a lincoln
without the mig kit
needs more tig
I'm worried that the lack of a gas shield might affect the plastic/metal joint ;)

must be at work in 2hrs.
leave in 52 minutes
it's not bad there.
sounds like it
I'm going to start making parts in a few minutes
it's windowed office, infront of my own laptop, with an additional 19" LCD
doing design work.
my office right now is next to the cnc mill :/
that could get loud
I'm also just listening and jamming to my ipod...
just temporarily ;)
while im making parts..
hopefully I'll have 40 of theese things done tonight
then home and get my mill running and make more parts.

somebody know about classicladder?
yay - it works
i want know about this
I know this not palce for this, but
my hope is somebody to use this project with emc, and can help-me
ooh neat: http://www.makezine.com/blog/archive/2007/03/capacitor_discharge_in_ac.html?CMP=OTC-0D6B48984890
this for me?
rafa: everyone here uses it I think..
Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emc/2007-03-28.txt
rafa: Most people here uses emc, for one thing or another..
rafa: if you need any help just ask, it may take a while to get a answer but you always get one :)

I dont know anything about it but somone else surely does

it would be a better photo without the fingers, as well
rafa: maybe i can help ( talvez eu possa ajudar)
i made my experimental setup with emc2 for an adaptive control of milling process
many thanks to emc team
i will try to link another PC with a dspace 1104 card / mathlab / simulink to a emc2 machine under linux
this will take some time but in a few weeks i hope that i can write a short report to emc team about my progress.
017:42 <rafa> friend you know about confi classicladder for work with modbus?
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/README.txt: note some items that really don't apply to the emc2 port of classicladder at all
does anybody know, where to put a pythonscript and what to do , to make it run in emc ? Alex and jepler make a file for teaching, and i dont know how to use
just so you know: most people will never answer that question, or at least they'll grumble about it if they do
it's another case of DATAJA
I'm having some issues with my univstep..
when I swiched to a new computer it wont work..
and I have no idea how to diagose it..
EPP mode in BIOS?
only EPP dosent exist
do you get an error?
I need to run out for a bit..
it checks for it but cant find it
I suggest putting the relevant logs/error messages on pastebin
anonimasu: I suggest you try to find the pcisetup program JonE has somewhere
and try to run that before starting emc2
I think it sets up some EPP stuff..
or filing a bug report so jon E fixes that correctly
* cradek grumbles
Anyone know how much a parport can source or sink?
slundell: the answer is "it depends"
often some bits are stronger than others
you can't be sure of the voltage either (unfortunately)
"The output of the Parallel Port is normally TTL logic levels. The voltage levels are the easy part. The current you can sink and source varies from port to port. Most Parallel Ports implemented in ASIC, can sink and source around 12mA. However these are just some of the figures taken from Data sheets, Sink/Source 6mA, Source 12mA/Sink 20mA, Sink 16mA/Source 4mA, Sink/Source 12mA. As you can see they vary quite a bit. The best bet is to use a buffer, so
does the pcisetup come with the emc cd?
anonimasu: no, it comes from jon elson's website. there doesn't seem to be any source, just a binary program.
jepler: that's really shitty.
ah well, I guess mailing him is a option..
he won't fix it when I complain (I'm not a customer)
it came up again very recently on the list
anonimasu: there's a note and link on http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Universal_Stepper_Controller
which should get you the executable
ok, thanks... But a pullup at 1K might be to big then? Gotta hook up the 'scope.
I wonder if this touchscreen will work..
some of them just look like mice to the OS
anonimasu: I suspect that the program just does does this: outb(0x80, ioaddr_hi + 0x2); // select EPP mode in ECR
jepler: couldnt that be implemted into the driver/emc?
he's said about as much
or the ppmc driver?
anonimasu: yes that's where it belongs (the driver)
I wonder why that havent been done..
does it break if you do it without checking what's there first?
probably nothing, but it could be a load time option if he's concerned about that
anonimasu: that's jone's concearn
I'm going to mail him and ask..
anonimasu: did it fix aour issue?
though not right now..
I'm at work now
fetched a touchscreen and let some customers in :)
to get their machine
I'll be back once I get home
for pluto_servo, there are 3 choices for ioaddr_hi: -1 (do not use ioaddr_hi), 0 (use ioaddr + 0x400; for legacy ports), and any other value (use the given address, for PCI parports)
though I think the few users of pluto_servo are using the default, which is 0

anyone here ever thought of designing a 5 axis mill ?
I can fit 2 more on my machine
well once iv got my hurco finishe i was thinking of building a big axis
big 5 axis
* alex_joni works with 6+ usually..
what u reckon would be the best way to build one ?
start with a preexiting mill or from scratch?
it's quite a difference from 5,6-axes machining
ok i bbiab
its dinner tie
it works now
but the touchscreen wont :)
it works but not as it should..
maybe it's not calibrated
but how do you do that in linux
how do you start that without a mouse?
and a terminal in X
ah found a program
in /etc/pointercal ?
with axiss new button - you now will be able to pan-zoom-rotate without clicking the keyboard
this is interesting: http://toykeeper.net/soapbox/debian-redhat/
im working on configuring it now
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/README.txt: actually remove sections which do not apply to emc2 port of classicladder
wasn't that long ago?
alex_joni: I recently added a "rotate" button to the toolbar
alex_joni: it swaps rotate to be on unmodified "butotn 1"
alex_joni: that's the "new button" skunkworks was talking about
jepler: oh, I know that..
I was talking about the CIA message
alex_joni: the classicladder README.txt has stuff about modbus, direct access to hardware, and different realtime systems that just doesn't apply to the emc port
yeah, I just thought I saw the commit email quite a while ago
the first time I just put a note at the top of some of the sections that they didn't apply to emc
this time I removed the sections altogether
I decided that just putting the note wasn't enough
then I misread the message, and thought it's the other one, but CIA is slow on notifying

mill & linux based control, a bit smaller than Bridgeport. http://ajaxcnc.com/ajax_software.htm
hey (lunchtime, im tom1)
im sitting here craving for a coke
im a pepsi man
some of the software on the linux package i just posted is from Centroid, a controll manufacturer in the US ( re: Intercon )
[21:01:32] <alex_joni> http://ajaxcnc.com/cnc_accessories.htm
it looks like it's a centroid control, getting thier retrofit video now
rather, it IS a centroid control, tho centroid never uses the word linux on their website
damn crappy totem player, sucks
i thought i had told all mime types to avoid that piece of sh#t
Your Search For linux Returned 59 Results
how you do that ?
there's a search on top of the centroidcnc page
but all the links it finds are in a "protected" area
hmm, well it's interesting that linux seems to be used ( tho it looks like dos )
mplayer + vlc > *

mplayer takes a bit too
i have them both in windows too tho

that seems somewhat accurate
it was an .asf file, i had never told this box about that mime
is this just media players?

cool, the movie shows a retrofit at a TVA shop ( Tennesee Valley Authority, the government agency that provides hydroelectric for a large area in the south ) a buncha good-ole boys narratin' "this her'es a tu-ret ma-chine". impressive, a twin headed turret lathe, clean retrofit. Now, The narrator is picking the safety latch on the servo drive box with his pocket knife... my kinda engineer :)

hey jepler you have reports of incremental jog broken in 2.1.4?
from the GUIs? If it's from hal, I've kept out of that whole business.
yeah, from axis gui
no, I haven't heard that.
yes, I select say 0.010 increment and I get only one. then if i select another axis and inc it incs both alternately ?
I guess I don't understand what you're saying
I selected increment 0.010 and then tried pressing the "left" and "up" keys
I'm using config/sim/axis
he wants to increment 2 axes..
oh -- you mean you press "up" and "left" at almost the same moment?
if start emc-axis and ask for .010 increment on z, it does increment but will only do it one time
hmm... during the video, the narrator sez " Hey billy! can yopu drop this down to windows while it's running?" well this installation in the movie was not linux
wow that was a 20 minute video !
oh -- you're clicking the button marked "+" with the mouse.
then if i select x and ask for .010 it increment x and z
well that's .. curious
thanks for your report, I understand what you are saying now
does it do that to you?
nice video .. that must be a goverment run plant
no one else could afford to have all that gear not running
is it easy to revert to 2.1.2?
twice2: yes. From the commandline, 'sudo apt-get install emc2=0:2.1.2' (or any other version)
twice2: later, when you want to return to the newest version (for instance, after 2.1.5 is released), 'sudo apt-get install emc2'
jepler: great thanks
hey roltek is kearney and trecker still in biz?
coo, those centroid CNC machines a windows ...
no sold to giddings and lewis and then sold to a german company don't remember new name
the k and t's are still built and serviced at giddings and lewis
how can make axis load up fullscreen ?
some days are just full of weird connections. another linux based cnc is Machinemate, which is a group of ex-Giddings&Lewis guys who use a control from germany, and one variant is linux based ( others are nt ) http://www.machinemate.com/heritage.htm http://www.low-cost-cnc.com/
that control was designed at giddings and lewis and sold to former employees
jepler:sudo apt-get install emc2=0.2.1.2 --> E: Version '0.2.1.2' for 'emc2' was not found
emc2=0:2.1.2 same error
hehe, someone campaigning to get off of the board of directors?
can't we all just get along, ubuntu brother ;)
For as little as $6701 (list price), a "complete" CNC package is now available from MACHINEMATE INC. This is a high-performance CNC at the price of an industrial PC.

skunkworks: Do they sell slave girls?
Jymmmm: add up the neccesary 'extras', their monitor, their operator panels, their handwheel, and esp their i/o ( expensive per point) ..... i had one.. tho i think it may be good, thier engineers never got my package to work and charged a huge amount for 'restock'. i'm disgruntled, but ymmv.
jymmm: only over 160 lbs
not interested then.
skunkworks who wants a slave girl over 150 lbs, eeeesh
EYE CANDY man, EYE CANDY!!!
>160 = "wisconsin wimmen"
could get a 7X12 manual lathe for 399 shipped
same rebadged one?
looks like the mini-mill is the same price
no real clue.
who actually makes it
all of those come from one manufacturer in china
they just repaint them and badge them here
hf, grizzly, cummins, etc
argh too bad I missed twice2
maybe the correct line is 'emc2=1:2.1.2'
compare the minimills from different suppliers, but same factory :) http://www.littlemachineshop.com/Info/minimill_compare.php
