i've recently upgraded from an old linux emc distrubution, BDI something, emc version 1, i installed version 2 with the latest BDI and EMCMOT=freqmod in my old config, but I can't seem to find that anywhere in the new documentation, or sample configs. I suppose I could set it and try to see if it still works, but it seems like stuff has changed and I can't find complete documetnation, help?
EMC2 is significantly different than emc1
there are lots of docs though
start here: http://www.linuxcnc.org/content/view/5/5/lang,en/
note that to use EMC2 with the BDI, you will have to compile it
we recommend using Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, we have binary packages that make installing EMC2 a snap on that distro
well I did the EMC 2.0 Ubuntu 6.06 cd thing
i downloaded and installed it
it has axis on it
i ran the interface, it loaded kernel modules
i assume that it's all there..
but i'm not crazy in determing that my old config file won't work, correct?
there are significant changes
was your old machine a stepper one?
your old config I mean - the machine still is whatever it is
well, the are servos, but dir/step driven
I suggest you start with one of the new stepper samples
i loaded in the stepper_inch.ini
granted, it didn't seem to do anything... not sure if my default it should, still going through the whole thing
did you tell it to make a copy of the sample in your home directory?
yea, it did that
so when i start now it shows just the steppers thing
and I hit stepper_inch again
i'm looking at them directly now
I'd open the copy, and open your old config, in side-by-side editor windows, and just read thru
you'll see several places where its obvious what you need to copy over from your old config
like axis scaling, etc
yea, input_scale has been the only thing so far
i reset some acceleration stuff..
dunno if you prefer the older GUIs (tkemc, mini), or if you want to use axis
but those default configs should be like the old freqmod? Cause I turned it on and it didn't move the machine at all, and obviously Axis was showing movement
that is selected in the [DISPLAY] section of the ini file
yea, i was gonna give axis a shot
the old freqmod is gone, but stepper_inch (or stepper_mm) should work very much like it
that's why i'm concerned, it doesn't appear to be acting like it eheh.. the machine isn't moving at all... hmmm
if your parallel port is at 0x0378, I would expect stepper_inch to just plain work
this is a different computer
granted the parralel port is enabled in the bios and all that
but you've plugged the cable that worked on the old puter into the new one's parport, and nothing's happening?
is it a PCI parport? those are often at strange addresses
i upgraded the computer, the old one if a piece of crap
the old one that worked was much slower, so i figured an upgrade would help
the parallel port is built into the motherboard
are you starting EMC from an icon, or from a shell/terminal?
try a shell - it will work (or not work) the same, but you can see any messages it prints
yea, that's true
just run "emc"
[ 1060.476407] spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.
that was in dmesg, not sure what that was from
long time ago
what's irq7, i forget
back in the day it was parport, but these days it could be anything
is that an issue? hehe
shouldn't be, EMC2 doesn't use the parport interrupt
are you talking to me from the EMC computer?
well, no i'm not, but i'm ssh'd into it, reading stuff from there
it's int he basement in my shop
ok, that works
i was thinking of installing xchat on there and going down there
installing it hehe
couple clicks with synaptic, if it isn't installed by default
apt-get install xchat worked
i'm gonna go down there
wonder if there's an enable line or something
I was about to go to sleep...
me too (early)
he must have had trouble.
or its a long way downstairs
well this is me upstairs still, i rebooted and the wirless wouldn't come back up
works is good
i introduced a new long parallel port cable that i decided i wanted to factor out of the equation.. so i hooked it up directly like it used to be, and it worked
so this parallel port cable i bought is worthless
i need the extension since the computer is farther away
i temporarily held it upside down under the workbench to test this, while at the same time using the keyboard/mouse ontop of the workbench, it was quite fun :)
so stepper_inch.ini works great for me
glad you got it working
yes, thanks fory our help jmkasunich
(cause its getting to be bedtime here)
yes, me too
I didn't do much, but you're welcome
i got my trustly voltmeter thing here, gonna check this cable
which pins are generally used, hmm, i can look in the doc
step and dir are on 2 thru 7 for a 3 axis machine
klickrr: some recent advice about wireless problems: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.emc.user/2223
ahhahaha, this parallel port cable has every pin reversed, 1 goes to 25, 2 to 24, 3 to 23, etc... i did notice that it said "file transfer cable" but i was just estatic that the store actually had a parallel port cable that I bought it eheh
yikes, glad it didn't hurt anything
yea, well that would mean the right ports connected to nothing
when you get your networking back, be sure to let the update manager run - there is probably an emc2 update to install
i had the wireless working, it seems kinda spuradic, but also the wireless router is 2 floors up, around a concrete wall in the basement... kinda far away
i'm not sure it's in the best place basically eheh
wireless is never really "best"
yea, well, it truely is the worst spot possible in the house to put it
i clearly didn't think the wireless part when i built the shop
and putting the computer in the farthest corner...
* cradek loans klickrr some cat5 cable
ehhe, yea, i might do that
but wireless is just easy sometimes eheh :)
except this time
so you run a cnc machine with linux emc?
transfer cable pinout db25 to db25 http://www.lammertbies.nl/comm/cable/parallel.html,
you make them yourself? or professional ones?
I have a mill and a lathe
they're both a combination of homemade and bought
the lathe is a full retrofit of a manual machine
so what software do you generally use for g-code generation?
the mill was originally cnc (tabletop) but was crap
i'd like to play with a lathe, be fun
I hand write a lot, or generate it with simple programs (python etc)
i've thought about adding an extra axis to mine to kinda have that
for more complex stuff (but still 2.5D) I use REALIZE in Autocad
realize, haven't heard of that
that's about as complex as I get
i use qcad and then wrote some software to do conversion
it generates gcode directly from tool paths drawn in autocacd
i only run linux.. so qcad is about all i have for cad eheh
I also don't have windows - I use autocad R12 for dos (using FreeDOS in qemu)
autocad ca. 1994!
ahh, wow that is quite old eheh
yeah, I'll probably use it until I die
you every try qcad? i know it's not very powerful, but i do pretty simple stuff with mine
I have tried it - I struggled to do even simple things
that was one reason to do the upgrade to emc2 and a new puter, to have a powerful enough machine to do qcad right down there in the shop if i need to, it'll be nice once i get it all up and running. I used to do it up here, transfer it wirelessly then run downstairs ehhe
yea, it's not the best cad, but i'm used to it
that will be much nicer I bet.
what did you write for qcad to generate gcode?
and, is it gpl? seems a lot of people might like to use that
well i used it's qcad dxf library, and then it uses SDL for graphical representation
it imports all the pieces, figures out all the continous lines, then comes up with toolpaths....
ah, realize makes you draw polylines - it doesn't do any merging
i do toolpath offseting in the code, cause i couldn't figure out how to do it with gcode heeh
how can you do different depths? or is qcad 3d?
well, i do 2.5D
i've rigged it for things like that
right I see
i name layers "depth 0.25" and it'll cut to 0.25 depth
now that you're using emc2 you might find that tool radius comp works right :-)
i was working on "pocketing" i think they call it, but never finished it
i'm gonna start working on a new program, with a sequencing part to the gui
where i can have a bit more control
a couple people on the emc-users list have talked about something like that - maybe you can even find some collaboration if you want
i also wrote a 3d thing, different program, that just does 3d dxf stuff, makes a depth map basically and runs it
yea, i'm on cnczone.com a lot, people on there always talk about it, but nobody is really doing anything
you might like image-to-gcode, which takes a depth map in image format and generates (pretty decent) tool paths over it
opencam or somethign exists, but it's written in gambas (visual basic clone i believe) and it doesn't even work with dxf files
yea, i wrote one of those as well
just have to convert it to greyscale first
i used gimp to make stuff like that
(image-to-gcode is in the emc2 distrib)
really, there's a linux versioN?
run the sim/axis configuration and load the png file directly
well i can't wirelessly connect to my emc box to check, but i'll look for that
image-to-gcode is an input filter for AXIS
yea, that's nice
might have to play with that tommorow
AXIS invokes it to "filter" the image into gcode - it just spews the gcode to its stdout
yeah the input filters are powerful. I bet you'll be able to set up some of your stuff that way
the one main reason i loaded emc2 also was for the G64 P0.01 (i think, it's continous mode with a maximum error setting) cause i always had to set acceleration faster then i wanted to get movements fast enough, can't wait to test out that new setting though
or G61, i never rememeber which one is which
that's right, tolerance mode
G64 P = continuous mode with tolerance
for gcode with lots of short things that are nearly parallel, it helps a lot
(seems that lots of naive cam output is like that)
ya, do other machines support that kind of thing? or is that emc specific
I'm not sure
yea, i guess i just like the smooth acceleration, but to get it worth a damn with continous mode, i had to set acceleration real high so it woudl follow the path correctly, so i'm excited to see that P thing work
oh your emc1 would go way off the path when you had low accel? I remember that
so what do you make with your machines?
yeah emc2 will slow down when it has to.
unless you were G61 (exact, i think) which was horrible with my 3d stuff, cause i used straight lines, it was going like 1 inch per hour.. hehehe
I'm in the process of getting a bridgeport mill - currently I have tabletop stuff.
on my tabletop mill I cut mostly circuit boards
[04:00:23] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek/cnc/pcb
oh very nice
on the lathe I've been known to make parts for watch repair, haven't done that much lately though
so ... various round things, with some threads :-)
so what software generates the gcode for the circuit boards? you design those in dxf? or somethign else
I use Eagle, and some homebrew scripts in their scripting language
[04:02:18] <cradek> http://axis.unpy.net/
^ here, you can see some stuff we did at CNC Workshop last month, including some stuff cut on my little lathe
cnc workshop? you guys meetup somewhere?
oh was that the video i watched on youtube
yes once a year in IL
heh yeah, pretty boring wasn't it
eheh, well yes eheh
I was one of those guys
i was hoping something cool would be made in the background slowely or something
so what were you guys doing there?
i had no idea from the video
just having a good time? or was there a purpose eheh
some coding, some work on that large Mazak machine behind us
that machine runs EMC2 and we use it as a testbed for a lot of stuff
it has a complicated tool changer, etc
this year, we did rigid tapping
yea i see that
also, some advanced lathe stuff (feed per rev, constant surface speed)
pretty much, we just do whatever we feel like for a week in a central location with nice hardware to work on
it's the kind of "vacation" that's hard to explain to "normal" people
oh i understand, don't worry :)
are the core developers of emc in here?
I know, I can tell :-)
yes virtually all of them are here sometimes
that's cool, good to know
also on the mailing lists
ya, when i first started cnc, i built my machine, and wrote a complete custom program to control it. I didn't use realtime linux though, and every time i refreshed the screen my machine froze up for 40ms eheh.. it was quite annoying, i built a TON of stuff like that though. I didn't want to load up dos to get mach2 or anything like that, then i found linuxemc and was so happy
did you start using emc some time ago?
yea, i guess i loaded that other puter about 1 1/2 ago
I started in maybe '03-04 and it sure has come a long way
i moved 7 months ago though, and just finally got around to hooking the machine back up, and decided to build a new box for it as well
i've missed it, 7 months without my cnc sucked eheh
i had to build my new workshop too
before i could hook it up
that sounds like a big project
i wanna build a bigger machine though, but for now i just want to use what i have
what's your homemade mill? any photos of it online?
hmm, no photos, granted it would take 2 minutes to take some, but it's a hobbycnc.com plans, but I rebuilt the entire gantry from plexiglass
made it bigger, and allowed for a full 12" in the Y axis instead of 9", and increased the Z from 1 inch to 2.1 (2 effective)
oh i do have a video somewhere
what do you make with it?
well it's made out of wood mainly
the first iteration was
the gantry was the only rebuilt section
which i built with itself, out of plexiglass
you know, i think i lost that video, i had a hard drive crash a few months ago and lost a bunch of stuff
ah, maybe some other time, no big deal
the gantry (Y?) has one motor or two?
it was a good video though, cause it showed me doing 3d cutout of "Klick" my nickname, was easy to see that it was mine ehhe
i have X, Y and Z
X is about 24 inches long
Y is 12 inches
Z is 2 inches
oh I understand, I was asking if the bridge is driven on both sides by separate motors
the servo's i picked up on ebay for a good price, 1200CPR quadrature encoders i think
no, single motors for each axis..
larger gantrys use two, homing/synchronizing them is an interesting problem
using standard leadscrews, anti backlash nuts
I have delrin nuts on my little mill - amazing how well they work
i have plans from machinetoolcamp for building a new machine, uses rack and pinion, not sure how much I trust it eheh
not sure if i'm going to use these plans or not really
sounds like backlash city
yea, well they "claim" no backlash of course, or some tolerable 0.004"
granted, there are anti-backlash gear's that i found somewhere
which was recommended by someone on cnczone.com who always seems to know what he's talkinga bout
i almost feel like just buying a machine from someone like k2cnc, but i think part of the fun is building it
yeah I have those mixed feelings too
I've decided an old bridgeport cnc with a dodgy control is the right thing for me to start with
seems there's a lot of them around
the machine size i want is like $12000 from shopbot and from k2cnc it's like $8000, actually neither have the exact size i want
custom built i can get it exactly the size i want
plus it would be a bit cheaper (god i hope eheh)
i like the idea of using aluminum extrustions, 8020 type stuff
to build the frame, that's why i bought the machinetoolcamp plans, since that's what they use...
yeah, that seems like a good scheme
you work mainly with metal? well besides circuit boards
at cnc workshop a guy was demonstrating lost foam casting - that works really well
the little mill can barely cut any metal. that's the main reason I want a larger machine.
lost foam casting? not sure i know what you mean there
there's a wiki for it
give me a sec :)
you make the pattern out of foam, coat it in plaster, support with sand
then pour the metal "into" the foam which disappears
interesting stuff on split pinion anti backlash rack... and more about machine design from MIT's design labs http://pergatory.mit.edu/2.75/2_75%20Lectures/PMD%20Topic%2021a%20Linear%20power%20trans%201.pdf
you get a great finish, much better than normal sand casting
pour metal, i don't think i have the equipment to liquify metal eheh
I better run - battery's almost dead
come back anytime
oh i will eheh
tomp2: that thing says ballscrews can easily achieve repeatability on the order of one micron..... jeez, that's saying a lot, i know ballscrews are good, but to "easily achieve" and down to one micron, the person writing this loves ballscrews i think
less than 1 um actually, microinches is common. but they get lost in the rest of teh machine. you buy leadscrews in 'grades', the better one are very hig precision and very expensive :)
and gears ( racks) can also be very high precision
any guesses as to what "EMO" input (toward controller) signal would mean in the context of a CNC mill?
Rugludallur: Are you there? I have done some more testing, and I have more feedback to give
Is there any documentation on the HAL component Oneshot?

sorry didnt read the last part :)
klickrr: keep in mind that alu isnt _very_ rigid..
hello friends, i am a cnc n00b ;-)
may i ask why emc doesn't a have a nice looking gui? i mean why all that tcl and scripting gui instead of nice gtk interface??
in general the answer to why a free software project doesn't have a particular thing is that nobody has contributed it
ok. my question was maybe there is a particular reason for a scripting based interface.
the answer to why nobody has contributed it can be much more complex
takeda: have you tried axis? IMO it's a good looking gui
. no it's not starting up,
i am with arch-linux and made a make && make install
i have to fix it
axis qualifies as a "good looking" GUI (IMO)
hey there jmk
a while back I recall you saying something about backlash being half-broken but the fix would be hard to implement, do you know if it is fixed? backlash comp seems to be working now
its half fixed now
something about 2x max_vel (now it's apparently 1.5x maxvel)
backlash is allowed to use 0.5 of the max accel
takeda_xc is now known as takeda
if the axis is already running at max accel due to the program, the total accel might be as high as 1.5x
oh so backlash accel is half of max accel?
and the same for max_vel?
usually vel isn't an issue - backlash comp takes place during a direction reversal, so vel is pretty low
what if you do say; g0 x0, g0 x10, g0 x0
I see what you mean
unless you've got a lot of backlash
low maxvel and high maxaccel
if you have so much lash that you can accel to a sizable fraction of max speed (at 0.5 max accel) during the comp, you have too much lash
what would happen then, is there a 1.5 maxvel limit or would it hit 2x maxvel?
to be honest I don't know
the 0.5 accel stuff was put in by somebody else
quite a while ago, maybe a year, maybe more?
oh, that long ago

ineffective as in HAL remains loaded (the modules, check lsmod)
or ineffective as in the zombie won't go away?
i see no items is lsmod's output that i can identify as hal, and 'ineffective' as in the empty clear window frame is presistant
was a pyvcp window
I've seen that once or twice when a python thing crashed without disconnecting itself from HAL

The ribs are on the bbq!
archivist: Ummm, no!
Anyone know anything about ground loops?
ground loops in what
well Im used to designing with grouning and imposed currents in pcb design
I've been looking at this breakout board. It's suppose to be opto-isolated, but requires two seperate power sources. http://www.cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/product_info.php?cPath=33&products_id=48
The thing is, the most quality db25 cables have theri shield common with the shell. So wouldn't that "break" the isolation between the PC and the controller box?
the isolation is in the optos
in part, yes.
and psu transformer
Well, on the PC side, would use the PC PS, which ic common with earth/chassis ground.
and in the relays.
you should be using for controlling stuff that requires more power
anonimasu: I'm strictly talking about grounds and isolation right now.
what you should not do is connect both grounds of the isolator board to its case
archivist: Ok, now the isolatr GROUND is common to the chassis/earth ground on the PC
Due to the PC PS
and remember to ground shielded cables only on one end
understand what I'm getting at?
JymmmmEMC: yeah, but that's before the optos
after the optos you have a different PSU, not connected to the same ground
alex_joni: Right, but most quality DB25 cables hav the shield tied to the shell
the 26th wire
thats ok as its the pc ground to isolator ground
archivist: abd also controller chassis ground
yes that case has ground from the pc
and none from the power socket if its on a wallwart
archivist: but he wanted to separate the two
PC and controller chassis
JymmmmEMC: actually it's wrong..
you don't have the PC ground on the output of the DB25
that should be after your isolation board
alex_joni: what specifically is "wrong"?
the opto should not be grounded then to the controller chassis
archivist: but it will be via the db25 cable, the 26th wire.
not if you mount the chassis connector correctly (isilated)
Is that a "good thing"? Shouldn't all connectors be grounded for safety purposes?
JymmmmEMC: lets rewind a bit
you have a PC with GND_PC..
on the parport you connect your isolation board.. right?
it had GND_PC on the left side, and GND_AUX on the right side
on the right side you connect the DB25 cable that goes to the controllers
* alex_joni pauses
On the PC...12VDC GND, Chassis ground, and earth ground are all common. We are all in agreement with this?
then you connect an isolation board
"<insert name here>"
[21:30:58] <JymmmmEMC> http://www.cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/product_info.php?cPath=33&products_id=48
that one has the PC voltages on the "left" side, and some different PSU & GND on the "right" side
you should probably stick it in a plastic enclosure
* alex_joni is waiting
I have an aluminum enclosure, mostly because I'll be running/controlling 120VAC @ 15A from within it. Not a good thing IMHO to use platics for it. UNPAUSE
still isolate the input connector from the case
JymmmmEMC: your board has 2 connectors
one that is going to the PC, and one to the controller.. right?
[21:35:51] <alex_joni> http://www.cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/images/c11r3_1.jpg
one is labeled PC, the others label I can't see in that picture
alex_joni: It's a pass-thru connector, nothign else.
it provides isolation, so it's not a simple pass through
you have the isolated output only on the screw terminals?
No, it says it has has isolation
if the 2 DB's are isolated from each other, then they are _not_ allowed to be touching the same frame/enclosure
PC --- CNC4PC --- Xylotex (as example) opto-isolated
JymmmmEMC: CNC4PC -- Xylotex (is that the second DB25? or wires connected to the screw terminals?)
ok, read it on the page
now.. when you stick it into an enclosure you need to make sure that only one of the DB25 touches the ground/frame
if you have a PSU inside the same enclosure, then preferably the same DB should touch
I'll need a seperate PS for the CONTROLLER side of the bb
say you have the AUX PSu in the enclosure, then the PC DB25 should not touch the enclosure, and the output (towards Xylotex) may touch it
BB == Breakout Board
So, I am right in that if I accidentlly placed the DB25 cable on top of the controller enclosure, I loos isolation.
but if you place the DB25 cable on top of the controller, there are no data lines connected
you simply connect the two grounds together.. which is not bad
Now sonce the PC grounds (all 3 of them) are common to EARTH ground, and the CNTL chassis will be earth grounded too, will that cause any issues/ ground loops?
depends on the CNTL
Sorry, I'm also BBQ'ing at the same time here
I mena the controller chassis
the aluminum enclosure
right, that's what I mean too
if you have signal ground connected to the controller chassis, then you lose your isolation
because it closes through earth (electrical sockets)
which signal ground, from the PC ?
yes, or from the bb in your case
So, then I shouldn't earth ground the chassis?
you then get star grounding and no ground loop
JymmmmEMC: no, I didn't say that
I know you didn't =)
you can earth ground the chassis, just make sure the common from the bb doesn't touch the chassis
like the DB25 shield
The oc side of the bb or the controller side of the bb ?
The pc side of the bb or the controller side of the bb ?
the controller side of the bb
* alex_joni heads to bed..
Ok, I just checked the db25 shell ont eh drives are common to chassis. But not the return side of the step/dir
alex_joni: G'night, see ya in a few hours
Jym - I'm willing to bet the DB shell and screws are not grounded on the breakout board
does the interface Axis have quick buttons to modify the feed override, like I used to hit 1-9 (and 0) to modify that, but those dont' work in Axis
Skullworks-PGAB: I'll email and ask him.
klickrr: they work when you are running a program
good night all
i was about to ask that.. eheh, that's the only time i care, but just haven't run a prog with axis yet, am about to though, thanks
klickrr: when running, `, 1..9, 0 modify feed override. when in manual mode, `, 1..2 (for a 3 axis mill) select axes and 3..9, 0 modify feed override
there is no option to control this behavior
oh wait I guess alex_joni said the same thing already
