Quiet in here today
Are we hunting wabbbbits?
are you cwazy?
wabbits are fewocious beasts
[00:38:29] <SWPadnos> http://www.rinkworks.com/dialect/
what's really fun is to go up one directory level, when it's set to elmer fudd mode
then you get languages like Wussian and Womanian
love the redneck!
yeah, Rinkworks is great
check out the Book-a-minute and movie-a-minute reviews ;)
I'm adding "roughing passes" to image-to-gcode, and I need to figure out the proper names for the new values I need for roughing passes.
The two pieces of information are: the additional depth that can be cut during each rouging pass, and the minimum amount of material that should be left for the final pass
"roughing depth" and "finishing depth" ?
next time, I will start with a box twice as big as I think I'll need
I have one that might be big enough, so I'm looking for a bigger one before I start
yeah I recommend that
and I'm already assuming that the VFD will be in a separate box
and the computer
cradek: do you need a press to put the cover on the box?
I'm sure Roland would let you use one if his
with a little consideration, I bet you could think of the similar rule for cutting wires to the length you'll need
he might even give you one
hm I was about ready to check this in but I spotted a bug
I guess that's better than letting someone else "spot" the bug based on the tool they just snapped off...
[01:38:38] <jepler> http://emergent.unpy.net/index.cgi-files/sandbox/i2g-bug.png
hmm. perhaps it should do the upper layers first ...
* cradek gleefully moves the spindle override control
jepler: I don't really understand your picture, but the highlighted diagonal doesn't seem right
cradek: it plunges directly into some semirandom part of pass n+1 after it finishes pass n
well, I'm not saying it's not deterministic
right - hence the semi-random
now I think it might be right... http://emergent.unpy.net/index.cgi-files/sandbox/i2g-roughing.png
roughing offset .1 inches; roughing depth per pass .5 inches
if you actually have features that tall, it will still break tools, but thats not the program's fault
oh sure this is not a shape for milling
it's a shape for seeing the effect of the roughing parameters
you won't break tools at .5 inches?
i mean unless you're using a teeny tiny endmill
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/axis.py: passing filter stderr on to the terminal lets folks like me see what a filter is doing as it runs
the 0.5 inches isn't the issue - the programmer will set that suitable for the tool
the issue is that if you have a 3" tall vertical feature, you'll rough your way down the at 0.5" per pass
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/axis.py: remove debugging print
then the finish pass will try to remove the finish allowance from the entire height of the wall at once
if the feature is tapered its a non-issue
what's the diameter of the endmill
irrelevant at this point
you can totally finish up a 3" face with a decent endmill
because he's working on the path generation code
I think a 2" diameter x 8" LOC mill could deal with a 1" high finish cut ...
but it is irrelevant at this point
the kind of work that image-2-gcode will be used for is more likely to be done with a 1/4" (or smaller) ball end mill
indeed it is :)
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/image-to-gcode.py: roughing passes
speaking of image-to-gcode... I just got my license of bobCam pro art today
very neat-o program
does it generate gcode that's ready for emc?
Do you guys know how use a hard drive with EMC2 on another computer?
i mean... Startx will not work, right?
what shoul i do to make the magic?
startx works for me
has it ever worked for you?
putting the hard drive on annother PC ?
you need to "dpkg-reconfigure" the X server
ahhh I see
I did not tryed yet, i am new onlinux (working to change that)
oke dpkg-reconfigure put the ubuntu on the road then
Thanks a lot, i will try right now
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/image-to-gcode.py: make_tool_shape takes diameter, but roughing_offset is equivalent to a tool radius
any of you in illinois? Isnt there some cnc "swap meet" in Galesburg?
or.. did I miss it
Ziegler: it's in June
[02:07:54] <SWPadnos> http://www.cnc-workshop.com/
SWPadnos: do you have the URL handy?
holy crap. NewEgg has specials with an Athlon64 X2 + 200GB hard drive + motherboard for $149.99 O_O
even less if you want socket 754 or non-x2 A64
[02:10:30] <SWPadnos> http://promotions.newegg.com/AMD/040407/index.html
I wonder if any of those would be good for EMC
sure they would be
Im using a450 Mhz 64 MB ram
hmm. I should get one or two for testing
im loosing some steps tho
well, processor clock speed isn't the best way to determine latency
yeah I read the wiki
I dropped the base period lower than I should have
low enough to freeze, or just get sluggish?
in manual jog mode...
I press a key.. and the lag is noticable
but acceptable for what I want to do
then you should definitely increase the base period
you may end up starving the userspace code (like the interpreter) if the system is very sluggish ...
What will that do?
no, it would cause the machine to stutter, as the motion controller (in RT) runs out of moves to perform
since the moves are provided by userspace code (afaik)
*sigh* I really just need to get a better computer
If I move the base_period to what it probably should be...
I cant run my steppers at there max physical speed
well, that's one of the drawbacks of software step generation
a bet a 1 ghz could easily keep up
I might try dropping from 1/8 stepping to 1/4 too... that might help a bit :P
yes, it would be about twice as good ;)
what block is used for 'float += c'?
if(s==0) out=0; else out = s * scale + offset
this is what I'm trying to do
(s is spindle speed)
if scale had an enable...
comp + mux + scale
yeah, worse than I had hoped
s <0.00001 ? 0 : scale * s + offset
duh, I'll use motion.spindle-fwd instead of s==0
isn't there a spindle-on output?
my encoder noise problem goes away when the spindle motor power isn't plugged into the control box
and -fwd / -rev
yes, all three
hmmm - that's no good
the noise issue
no, it's great that it goes away
well, that is a plus
I wish I had one of those split ferrites to put on the power cord
oh - you can plug the spindle into another outlet and it works?
ah, that is cool then :)
yeah very nice
go brefoot and touch the spindle, if you get shocked, youfound the problem! LOL
cradek: sounds like a line filter on the spindle drive would be a good thing
more like choke on the price
like, gag me with a choke
the best kind of pun is the unintended one
I scavenge those things, probalby have a dozen of various shapes and sizes
I found one, but it doesn't split
cut open an old monitor cable ...
but I'm not very impressed with their ability to deal with any but the very highest frequency noise
I need the split kind if it's not to be a huge pain
how is the line cord connected to the spindle drive PCB inside the drive enclosure?
I'm definitely pleased that this makes it work
it's an SSR directly hooked to the pluto output
line cord -> PCB ...
line cord -> SSR -> pcb ?
line cord -> fuse -> Switch -> SSR -> PCB
the SSR output is hooked into the power to the back outlet using those crimp on connectors
yes, there's a switch and fuse first
that is in your box
the SSR input is hooked directly to a pluto dout
ah - that's the output
yes in the driver box
I was asking about the sherline box, where the actual drive is
oh in the sherline box, the power switch switches one side of the line, then spade lugs on the pcb
10KW/A UPS ?
I'm aware I could remove the cord, but it's a big pain
so unplug the spades, feed them thru the ferrite one at a time, and plug em back in
jmkasunich: quit making sense
yeah I agree that's the right way :-)
and I'd pay $5 to not do it that way
the sherline box is that horrible to open up?
remember I crammed extra junk in it...
here be dragons (and messy cramped wiring)
the opto and such?
or extra extra junk
and a connector
I've heard of grilled cheese in the VCR, but in the controller?
mmm grilled cheese
ok, lets think about this a bit....
sounds good doesn't it.
we're assuming the noise is generated by the spindle drive, and is flowing backwards up the line cord
how does it get into and disrupt the encoder signals
maybe through the SSR
the encoder sigs go driect to the your driver box, right? nowhere near the sherline drive box?
maybe it's just proximity (it's cramped in there)
cradek: (charge pump?)
jmkasunich: they go a little close to the drive box
but that can't be the problem, since it goes away
[03:11:50] <jmkasunich> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/cnc/lathe/DSCN6296.JPG
the fat cable has encoder sigs in it?
the black one goes to the spindle drive?
the fat one also has the axis motor leads?
the one under the fat one is the parport cable
the pluto is attached directly to it
so its not that your encoders are exceptionally sensitive, if so the axis motors would kill them
the SSR is right inside that "AUX 2" outlet
right, I have not seen a problem with the spindle off
how hard would it be for you to post a pic of the inside of the box?
if it were earlier, or I was less hungry, it would not be bad
ok, don't worry about it
I think I'll have a snack and go to bed early
I do appreciate your help though
figuring out noise is one of my drive related skills - AC drives make it by the gallon
cool, it's black magic to me
is the IEC connector that feeds power into the driver box filtered? (many are)
yes I think so
how is the ground pin of the black (outgoing) AC outlet wired?
direct and short to the ground of the incoming plug?
ah, never mind
the grounds of all three plugs are tied directly together with a wire nut
also chassis I think
I'll have to ask 100 questions, and you'll starve
I'll take a photo later
or, just not plug it in there
I'm completely thrilled that it works
a schematic of the inside of your box would be great, but I don't think you draw schematics do you?
nope, I never really do
if you don't plug it in there, you don't get spindle on/off, right?
eagle forces me to do it for some stuff, but I grumble
with the scale/mux I just set up in hal, the pwm goes to zero when spindle is off, and it reliably stops
I don't draw them up fancy or in CAD, but I'm very visually oriented - I sketch out even the simplest circuit
so the outward appearance is identical
if nothing else, we can go on a noise hunt at the workshop
I'm sure we can make it work right
if the controller box gets disconnected, does the spindle take off or stay stopped?
that might be fun
ok, that's a Good Thing (tm)
SWPadnos: it can't run, no matter what you do with the knobs on it, without that pwm
that means when you unplug your added wire, the drive doesn't work anymore
and I don't really care - it's not a manual lathe
or did you use one of those clever earphone plugs that connects the speaker when you unplug the phones?
it's a barrel
never mine, that wouldn't work anyway, no source of power for the opto LED
barrel, like wall wart power?
some of those also have switches, but I'l lbet this one doesn't ;)
goodnight! (happy times are here again)
yo! .. does this thing work? (bitchx)
hey i guess it does!

how's the machine coming along Jymmm?
i'm buying motors soon for my second machine.. i can't decide how much oz/in is enough... there is a big range to choose from
start with 2000lb/in and go from there
** i'm not really limited to any size frame, i'm building the machine from scratch
that's even better
after a certain point i'm jsut wasting money...
but.. i don' tknow where the point is really..
trial and error i guess
it is a trade off between torque and speed
and they are usually inversely related
400 seems to be mid range
i found some 870
870 oz/in for a reasonable price i think
are you talking steppers or servos?
not right away
it will be an upgrade once it's working
speed might be your bigger concern
more tourque = less speed with steppers?
more torque == heavier so it can be slower
and more mass might cause skipping problems at high speeds
SWPadnos may disagree but I think there was an article comparing more torque vs speed a while back (last year I think) in MEW
think the other factor is thetype of drive
Yeah you need a purple one

Good morning skunkworks
can we increase the step pulse rate greater than 50khz?
How fast is the inner loop now?
cnc_engineer123_: depends on the computer
I was running 75kHz once.. but that's really extreme
if you need high frequency I suggest you look at a UnivStep or similar board
Alex, what happened to M101? its "unknown m code used now...
[13:01:08] <alex_joni> http://pico-systems.com/univstep.html
gene__: you probably don't have the executable in the nc_files dir
its on the system, i found it in /usr/share/emc tree
at these short base_periods, you also have increased scheduling jitter so it becomes more difficult to ensure that the step waveform matches the timing requirements
should i move it & where?
gene__: inside your ini you have a PROGRAM_PATH or something like that
[13:04:31] <jepler> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?UserDefinedMcodes
we have selected base period 20000ns on 1 Ghz PC, now if we decrease further base period the applications slows down
"When the interpreter reaches a line with a user-defined M-code, an external program is executed with two positional arguments: The values for the P- and Q- words. These external programs must be placed in the directory named in the ini file: [DISPLAY]PROGRAM_PREFIX, and have a name like "M101" (capital M)."
as in stepper_incch.ini?
this is the page linked from the g-code reference guide: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.1/html/gcode.html
actually - I was playing with m101 a few weekends ago. I was getting the same thing. I have the m101 script in the nc_files didrectory
I figured I was doing something wrong
so am i
cnc_engineer123_: yes that sounds like a typical experience.
What should be the speed of computer, to get that 75khz pulse rate.
cnc_engineer123_: I was using an 1.4GHz Athlon, and it went down to 7500ns, but I didn't try to run steppers at that rate
cnc_engineer123_: perhaps you need to adjust your expectations for software step generation.
cnc_engineer123_: I wouldn't expect them to run smoothly
cnc_engineer123_: it might help to read http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?TweakingSoftwareStepGeneration
Hmm - maybe I was running it out of a different directory than was stated in the ini.
my PROGRAM_PREFIX is pointing at /home/gene/nc_files, as it should be. Move the M101 stuff to there?
Actually we need to capture encoders at higher rate than 50 khz, for close loop servo
cnc_engineer123_: your getting way into hardware encoder counting
cnc_engineer123_: get a motion control board
how many axis?
I would think the pluto would be a good match if your getting by with a couple printer ports.
or one of jon elson's boards or the mesa if your budget is above "hobbyist"
or if you can sacrifice resolution, use an external quadrature divider running on a microcontroller: http://emergent.unpy.net/projects/01149271333
"According to my cycle counting, it polls at 470kHz when a 16MHz crystal is used, so it is expected to work reliably with a 133kHz quadrature signal. So far, though, it has been tested with a single motor spinning at hundreds of RPM.
dividing by 8, you have a modest 16kHz quadrature waveform which you will actually be able to count in emc
bbl, time to do my real job...
alex_joni: good luck tomorrow. Break a leg?
thanks.. I'll be online later (gotta finish something now)
Ok, moved M101 to program_prefix, is no longer an error, but now does nothingg, what is proper syntax to display a #11 type of number?
Got M101 working guys. You must put a trailing / on the PROGRAM_PREFIX string!
Maybe the wiki entry should mention that?
gene: maybe you should update it?
Hi Guys, just want to say hello. Im finally getting around to converting my mill to servo drive so it's time to learn about EMC
The_Ball: hi, good to hear that
alex_joni, what kind of setup do you have?
alex, I've seen you've done a custom usplash image. I would like to put a custom image on the live cd, I tried this procedure: http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Change_Usplash
but the oage says it is for the 5.10. The result was only a black screen. If you have time and you can explain me how to do that it will be appreciated...
xemet: let me refresh my memory :P
The_Ball: I have a small stepper machine now
but at work I work with AC servos (robots)
xemet: apt-get source emc2-artwork-usplash
alex_joni, ok, i was planning for dc servos but i managed to get some ac ones: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=008&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=180119980489&rd=1&rd=1
alex_joni, do you run with step/dir control or something else?
steppers with step/dir
the servos I use are driven by CAN
proprietary protocol though
The_Ball: I would rather use +/-10V analog on those drives
oh, is that accurate as though?
The_Ball: you need a motion control board
alex, if I do get source what should I do after to change the usplash image?
then you connect the encoders to the motion control board, and the analog output to the drives
xemet: replace an image
and run 'debuild'
it will create an deb which you only need to install
thank you, I will try
ah, and the motion control board is a pci card?
The_Ball: usually yes
[14:17:45] <alex_joni> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?EMC2_Supported_Hardware
hmm, looks like that means step/dir control until my budget gets past the shock
cradek_ is now known as cradek
[14:30:38] <alex_joni> http://www.drublair.com/comersus/store/workshops/tica.htm
alex_joni, im reading a bit on the wiki, are you one of the devs?
any particular area that would benefit from one more?
The_Ball: What is your skill set?
it depends how much time to spare you have
alex_joni: doesn't believe in sleep, so he has lots of spare time. :-)
lerman: talking about The_Ball ?
cause I started to believe in sleep lately
what time is it in your neck of the woods?
time to head home
time is always a premium but i somehow find time for my hobbies ;) i just completed my bachelor of inf tech and have been using linux the last 8-10 years, i've started a bachelor of engineering, i work with linux / high bandwith storage solutions
17:25 < alex_joni> time to head home
and then connect to the group from home...
I'll be offline tomorrow morning though :P
* alex_joni is getting married
The_Ball: What programming languages?
(that's why he believes in sleep -- but not alone) :-)
The_Ball, how high bandwidth?
alex_joni: tomorrow is the day?
cradek: one of them
saturday is another day
Two weddings -- did you say how many brides?
lerman: only one legal here
alex_joni: well break a leg
need to go further east for more than one
hmmm - that may be almost enough
SWPadnos: you surely must know here, if you agree
I knew there would be some bash-worthy mixing of these two discussions
I'm heading home.. later all
03jmkasunich 07TRUNK * 10emc2/configs/sim/simulated_home.hal: core-sim only supports three axis, so simulated-home can't do four
see you Alex
alex_joni, nice to "meet" you
huh, did jmk skip work today?
hmm. so, with sjgnificant compression, I might be able to get by with 750 MB/sec
yay - I saw that problem yesterday
SWPadnos, if you need more we have some sas based systems coming...
The_Ball: where are you located?
it sounds like a 10gigE interconnect, or some other storage-related "network"
excellent. if I meet with you, I can write off my anniversary trip
Aww - the cnc workshop is coming up - but that is in IL usa
oops - I didn't say that
you may have to strike that off the logger
logger, belay that order!
we do run 10gig to some client workstations
make it so
oh right, I can just edit the files
i guess you guys are all on cnczone?
nope, not me
I hate web foprums
they bug me - I hate having to sign up for the forum to read some posts or get the attachments
the emc project has its own mailing lists: http://www.linuxcnc.org/content/view/4/8/lang,en/
personally, I read both the "users" and "developers" lists
I will join the list
:( just talked to the boss and he saiys i actually gotta come into the shop today.. no updating the website from home :(
hey guys, got x problem, its eating 80% of cpu & emc is lagging. Been rebooted
does it do that when EMC isn't running?
hmmm. #ubuntu may be of some help then :)
(not to be rude or anything)
The only thng I did to xorg.conf was to add "1600x1200" as the first option in the multicolor lines, but its still at 1024x768 & butt ugly
I usually get rid of all the resolution sets at all the bit depths I don't want
I'll take those back out, but this card, on this mobo, and this machine HAS run at 1600x1200 just fine in a previous install
I'd b esurprised if that's the problem
then again, what bit depth are you using?
so would I, but thats the only change
24 gforec 5200 card, nv driver
ok. I'm assuming the 5200 has more than 8M of RAM, so that shouldn't be the problem
you're using kubuntu from the DVD, with EMC2 installed afterwards, right?
correct, useing the install sacript
I thought the nv driver could be a problem also
I found an error in that too, the .ini files PROGRAM_PREFIX line needs a trailing /
nv hasn't been before
nv just announced a newer version last night
which is it, nv or nvidia?
i never had installed the nvidia driver
you could try the vesa driver instead, but I'm not sure you can get 1600x1200/24 bit
i don't think so, but how to try?
change the line that says "nv" so it says "vesa" instead
somewhere there will be a line that says: Driver "nv"
I'm back, but its been "real" getting here, I tried to take the wacom crap our of it while I was at it because the ubuntu list has been squawking
but there is another reference to 'stylus' someplace, and it wouldn't startx, just hung. So I ssh'd in and ran the fix script, so I'm back to square one, but with axis now at the top of the top screen
And, the 'realtime' error box that pops up steals the keyboard focus, and I lost 1/4" off a clamp before I could get the motor and spindle power killed cause I couldn't stop emc with the esc key
hmmm - that doesn't sound fun
That needs fixed, it doesn't hit but maybe 1 time a session, and can be cleared without effecting emc IF you notice it.
yeah - I wonder if that message box can be popped over axis, but not grab focud
That would be ideal, stealing focuc=bad dog
That would be ideal, stealing focus=bad dog
it might be a window manager problem also
focus stealing in general is a very very very very bad thing
yeah - I'm not sure if it's possible to pop a window over the current one, but not give it focud
gah - focus
anyway now I've lost all my zero points, this block of alu is starting to look like swiss cheese...
I think it is doable
gene, were you setup for click to focus or point to focus?
where do I check?
it'll be in the KDE control center somewhere, under desktop settings (or whatever they call it)
couldn't find it
how do you go between apps? do you have to click to go between apps or just move the mouse?
I have to click
might be a matter of making that box nonmodal
not sure how it would work in Python though
well, I have a trial cut going now, to see if I can see the backlash turnaround in the middle of the curve
make sure your physical estop button is within reach ...
I need to get one wired up...
since you have steppers with no feedback, you can run the test programs without the motor drivers powered. additionally, when checking problems (like timing and system response), it's probably a good idea to not use a cutter at all ...
(but you know that now, even if you didn't an hour ago ;) )
otherwise, if I can see the backlash wibble, I'll have to do this in long x sweeps with the y calculated, s/b fun cause I'm not a math whiz
cutters are fine...just use one made out of wax ;)
i.e. a crayon so it leaves a mark where it went
what size collet? I'm lazy
1/4 or thereabouts, I think
depends on how far down they can compress
This cut is in 3d guys
metric or english crayons?
crayons are incredibly cheap... $1 for 64 of them!
good, I can't see the z axis backlash reversal, so this might do
but I need to get an air nozzle on the bit too, smoother finish I expect
humm, may have small flat spot on top, I can see where it actually startz z back down for real, damn.
Can I reload the .ini on the fly?
and xorg is back to 75% cpu, wtf?

cradek: showing the working volume is nice
glad you like it
it definitely helps you to offset the program into the limits (or see if it fits)
I am surprised that I can complete a "touch off" after hitting F1 to enter estop mode!
(since touch off issues an mdi command)
ESTOP on and you can still do MDI commands?
that particular mdi command doesn't cause anything to happen on the machine
I have no idea if that's relevant though
I meant in general
That actually was a question, not a comment.
I don't believe you!
I mean - Oh, good question
SWPadnos Yeah, Yeah, I bet you don't believe that Earth is flat, and THERE BE DRAGONS too!
the user interface usually prevents you from entering MDI commands when the machine is in estop mode
