jepler, yea I have one of my students doing that as well, but eagle has a size limitation unless you buy the full version
so in theory you could use PCB app -> eagle ->eagle script -> emc, which is a bit convoluted

Twingy: that's true -- I would be happier if I had a GPL way to do circuit boards, but I haven't taken the time to learn PCB
jepler, ok, when you do, you can use gcam to take a PCB gerber and covert to g-code
Twingy: but it's not so important to me that I've actually tried to learn PCB -- I rarely bump into the limitations of it
as well as excellon drill file
inertia is a powerful thing
I've also matched the rotate and zoom mouse buttons to match axis
Twingy: that will be convenient for users of both!
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/man/man9/.cvsignore: ignore new generated page
any clue when the next emv live ubuntu cd is coming out?
Twingy: it was recently updated to include emc 2.1.6.
any chance/interest in putting gcam on there?
Twingy: if you are interested in getting gcam into the hands of emc users, the first thing to do is make .deb packages. putting it onto a future live CD is several steps past that.
k, I'll work on that
Twingy: do you have an ubuntu or debian machine where you can experiment with building .deb packages? The debian documentation is actually pretty good.
I am on a feisty box right now
tell it to settle down and do the dishes
Twingy: after you get a .deb on a feisty box, it should not be too hard to tweak to build for dapper
after I make the deb package I'd like to try and get it into synaptic
03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/rs274ngc/interp_check.cc: CSS: g95 dNNN limits spindle speed to NNN RPM
Twingy: personally I'd like to see gcam be easy for users to install
synaptic would do that
Twingy: have you find the dpkg documentation yet? this is pretty good and most of it is relevant to ubuntu as well. http://www.us.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/index.en.html
not yet, working on a release, it's been 2 months and 1 day since the last one

did Dallur make a new THC without classicladder? ( with hal only )
A: yes, its the NewPlasmaDesign.odg. converting to Black & White now for my color challenged printer ;)
03alex_joni 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/rs274ngc/ (5 files): use G96/G97 for CSS ON/OFF, and G95 for feed per revolution. It seems that G96/97 for CSS is quite common amongst other controls too (haas, fanuc, okuma, etc)
alex_joni, I think the mill is working now! I switched to q4 drive mode and made dual driving schmitt triggers (one goes high, one goes low), did some long jogs and queried the controllers, they returned to 0 :)
yes, this is good fun, trying the chips penguine now in wood
after the first run of chips i would like to run it again in the same path, but I will drop the drill bit a bit lower, what is the best way to reposition for the next cut?
what GUI are you using?
there is a button called touch-off
select the Z axis first
then use touch off, and enter a negative offset
e.g. go to Z0, touch off and enter -1
but do i need to go into mdi and do a g0 x0 y0 before I start the next cut?
but you can also skip that
and use the current Z value
say your Z axis is at 23.5
you can use touch off, and enter the new value beeing 22.5
ah! simple, thanks
i have never touched g-codes before
The-Ball: no problems, we all have been there :P
the best would be if you follow your guts/feelings
and let us know what doesn't feel intuitive
this can only help to improve things
cheers, very friendly bunch here
we do this for fun ;)
no reason not to be friendly

skunkworks: same room, but it's been moved around
alex_joni: programming or physically?
skunkworks: physically.. been dining outside
much has been re-arranged
the mazaks have been rotated 90 degrees
the older of the two giddings and lewis mills is gone (we're sitting where it was)
ah - so the garaged door is behind the camera?
(on that wall)
How is the weather?
yesterday was nice

Ok, I stand corrected, Steve has a cup of joe
and cradek is pouring one (in the last pic)
* archivist eyes a large jar of sweets
So, how many are ther so far?
is it possible to link(ps/pp?) up params from different hal components, like with signals and pins?
that's the difference between pins and params
i get the impression from scope.c that params are in shm - correct?
yes, I think that's right
:( so much trouble just to see if an axis is still homing or not.
how was emcfest, or w/e happened in galesburg?
Yeah, what IS happening at fest anyway?
we're trying to get some work done, can you stop bugging us?
SWPadnos: What kind of work ?
I don't know yet, I'm still drinking my first coffee
SWPadnos: oh, then get your ass off IRC already and GET TO WORK! lol
hey, can't you see I'm working? (on my coffee)
SWPadnos: did you see my bug fix for the homing problem?
i'm surprised cradek/ jepler/ alex_joni haven't taken the patch yet.
maddash: I saw a patch that reinstated some commented out code (or something like that)
I actually don't have access to commit list emails when I'm on the road (or any other lists, for that matter)
SWPadnos: eh? where?
on IRC :)
it was only a few lines, so it may not be what you're talking about
well, if it was submitted by maddash, then it's what i'm talking about
:) <--- happy that homing works again. brb.
SWPadnos: you want a SX GBIC?
heh - I won't know until next week, but great! I'm glad it works now ;)
JymmmmEMC: I'm married, thank you!
SWPadnos: That didn't answer my question though!
so that's a fiber single-mode gigabit interface card? (or something like that)
SWPadnos: yeppers, plugs into a switch
sure, send it (them) over
I only have one switch I can plug it into at the moment, but I'll probably upgrade to gigabit in the near future
SWPadnos: Yeah, I doubt I'll ever go fiber gigabit
heh - fiber seems better for 10gig, but that's just me
SWPadnos: I had two, but I took the other one apart yesterday =)
Oh, and whoever told me there are magnets inside cdrom drives, thanks!
really small ones, in the motors
umm - did the camera stop updating??
SWPadnos: Actually, right next to the laser head, for alignment purposes.
sure, voice coil alignment
SWPadnos: BTW... I got some 25A@300VAC 12VDC coil DPDT relays for $2/ea the other day =) FINALLY found a place that had relays, only took two months.
All I ever could find was 10A
My soindle takes 11.5A starting up. More if I crank up the speed to max.
oil that camera or let that guy put his arm down
03cradek 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/utils/scope_disp.c: from jepler: make sure that coordinates sent to gdk fit within 16 bits

jmkasunich: Did you put glue on cradek's chair? Haven't seen him get out of it yet!
he's burning CDs to give away
Is there an encoder at the spindle on the mazak?
Well, chit... This new computer doen'st have a spare internal USB header =( Guess I'll have to steal one from the front panel
camera locked up again :). might have to give up on it. (I really don't watch it that much ;))
wrong kind of oil
Question... Can you use PC6400 DDR2 ram in a DDR2 333 system?
try it - probably
I have to buy em before I cna try it =)
This box has 512 right now, but frys has 2x1GB for $74 after rebate.
but they're 800MHz FSB
03jmkasunich 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/utils/meter.c: open 'select' dialog when halmeter is started (unless an item to observe is specified on the command line)
whats the command to update emc2 to 2.1.6?
* skunkworks only uses the update manager.
sudo adept found it, thanks
I thought I'd update it, then sharpen a case trimmer I'm about to crown a rifle barrel with.
whats is the lowest practical angle? Yeah, a Lee case trimmer, for trimming rifle cases back to the correct length after they've been used a few time.
I somewhat resembles a 4 flute end mill, but only on the end face.
yup, as in a 30-06 or so.
brass things that you want to be on the right end of
why not just buy the correct ones?
In this case, its a 30-06 Ackley Improved. You have to make them, not sold.
They are fire formed from the regular 30-06, it expands the case to only a .020" taper, and puts a 40 degree shoulder in place of the 17 degree the factory case wears.
Holds about 8 grains more powder, and can run alongside a 300 H&H at full song.

Whats a 3" x .750 piece of tool steel worth?
round on the .750"
I need to make a better crowning tool.
gene__: I got a .25 in need of some TLC... I've tried different loads/brands of ammo, but most of the time the pin doesn't hit the primer hard enough to fire.
gene__: It makes an indent, but that's it.
Sounds like a remington utomatic?
Sounds like a remington atomatic?
The bolt assembly in the only one I've comee in contact with takes remington only tools to dis it for cleaning, and if it ain't clean, it don't hit them hard enough.
So what kind is it?
I had to go get it...

mainly - he supplies the printer ;)
Heh, do my eyes deceive me.... A female presense at fest (or just passing thry)???
and his offspring units
toastydeath: whatever you were talking about in respect to medical lighting
jmkasunich: Ah, gotcha. Probably the only way a female would show up.... wonder if bribed or drugged her? LOL
that's not really a question, dude
at that point it's just an exclamation in a quizzical tone
do you have a real question regarding my statement
or just disbelief
[23:20:08] <toastydeath> http://www.dotmed.com/images/auctionpics/3815/1.jpg
that is a surgical lamp
the heads can be focused at various lengths, and are shadowless
they'll say you have from like, 1 foot to 7 feet, and you get 30" of shadowless depth in that range
1-7' being the focal range
