good night all
i gotta reduce these vncrec files, 40 sec cost 341meg ... reduce frame size, reduce frame rate , was 800x600 and 10fps, maybe reduce color depth too
but i made a shell script for most of the cmds, that helps a lot
which video encoder makes the smallest movies?
tomp: 10fps? ew
just go mpeg4, 40 seconds should be a few mb
thx, will look for transcoder
sweeper: thx, 40 secs is now 2071878 bytes :) using ffmpeg to convert to mpeg4
cradek, jepler: i just read this article http://axis.unpy.net/01185276001
is this low speed limitation still a problem?
I might have an idea how to make it smooth
maybe you could implement some kind of single pulse mode in pluto to make accurate step timing below 1kHz rate
emc would just tell pluto when to make a step if step rate is below minimum continuous frequency
that would be kinda slow
reTok: not sure.. but 1kHz feels awfully slow :)
"IF step rate is below minimum continuous frequency"
it could have two modes
it would switch automatically to different mode when step rate goes low
reTok: I don't know enough about it to be able to comment..\
another possibility could be to apply some clock divider in slow speeds
making such transitions might be tricky but possible
I'm newby in CNC area. But I have an old russian CNC mill and I already write the control software for every single axe of it. And then I was told I inventing the bike :)
[13:04:00] <Assargadon> http://richart-consalt.ru/robot.jpg
^^^^^^^^^^ it's a photo of the mill
nothing wrong with inventing a new bike :)
Assargadon: hi, where are you in russia?
* dimas is in russia too...
Now dimas, yes, I'm in russia
"Now" is wrong :)
It's part of other message
alex_joni, my bike is not so new :)
I try to make some kind of poker-working machine
just to get some CNC expirience
problem is EMC need hard realtime...
I wrote my CNC soft with GCC, but under windows
And despite the fact I'm well anoughts with linux, I cannot switch myself to it at home
as far as I have mother and sister, and they don't like linux
Paradox is I have Linux desktop at my jobplace :)
Is there any possibility to split realtime code and "logical", not realtime, code?
Assargadon: I don't know what you mean by "logical" code -- for instance, the user interfaces, the gcode interpreter, and some other parts are presently simple userspace applications.
well, "simple" may be the wrong word
that doesn't mean they'll be easy to port to windows
some parts (included in emc1) used to run on windows.. but doing that for emc2 will be probably a lot of work
jepler, as far as I understand, only parts of code, directly concerned with hardware interaction, needs realtime approach
for example, you don't need realtime to calculate steps for drawing ellipse
so I call this code "logical"
opposite for "hardware"
Assargadon: that is correct, that part is done by the interpreter (converts g-code to primitives like line and arc)
but generating position commands from a line is realtime
so, what kind of input realtime core need?
there is a shared memory where commands are sent from userspace to realtime code
something like "axe 1 +1; sleep 5ms; axe 1 +1"
if you look at the emc2 sources you'll see what commands are
Assargadon: no, more like linear-move to X10 Y21 Z1 A2.3 B5.7 C-27.39
or something like "line from point A to point B with speed X"
yes, something like that
but there are about 40-50 commands, line is only one of them
yes, of course.
I understang gcode...little :)
depending what you want to accomplish, emc2 might be too much..
btw, you are aware that you can run emc2 from the LiveCD?
without changing anything on your computer..
I searching for touch points with RepRap, you know
alex_joni: good morning.
for example, one don't need realtime at all, if "realtime" code executed in outer controller
you can feed this controller with super-primitive commands
like "axe 1 +1; sleep 5ms; axe 1 +1"
Assargadon: there are some projects that build on emc2 and use external controllers
connected through USB
(but you lose some flexibility, for example you cannot make synchronized moves for threading..)
I trying to understand, why RepRap don't use EMC...
It looks so good and so much good features already made
(in EMC, I mean)
As far as I understand, they don't like realtime functionality
that's why I'm interested in EMC modularity
alex_joni, about LiveCD - yes, I find this possibility several minutes ago :0
I do not yet understand how it possible
it contains a realtime kernel on it
I mean, what used for saving everything needed...
well, you can't save anything
and, after all, how can I add needed modules for my hardware support
what kind of hardware do you have?
EMC has no support for soviet mills, don't it?
emc is non-discrimitory
alex_jono, 3d-positioning system with Black Box controller :)
3 DC motors ypou can switch on and off
3 optoencoders, like in old mices
thats forms some kind of servos
and 6 magnetic swithes as endstops
I have a big black box also
it has a lot of LEDs on front of it
showing state of every motor (on/off), every encoder (on/off), every endstop (on/of)
and "block" button
wich blocks the motor functioning phisically
from the "logical" point of view
you can send appropriate commands to this controller via LPT port
and you receive the answer
then you probably want to identify what to send/expect
and go from there.. (if you want to keep the controller)
which is no more than a set of bytes, showing the state LEDs illustrate
so, no intrinsic counting of position
nothing like this
alex_joni, I already done it...with GCC
my test code now moving axe to one endstop
then to other, counting the lenght of axe in steps
and then moves the axe to middle of counted lenght
I can made this for every single axe
so where's the problem?
alex_joni, next step should be something making something "usefull"
I attach pen to machine for this
I can describe something like line drawing or ellipses drawing
and then write SVG parser
and then make some kind of plotter
and than replace pen with poker-work device I alredy have
but all this will be reinventing of bike, isn't it?
That's why I want to use EMC
but I need some kind of "connectivity" to use EMC for my machine, isn't it?
It's called HAL in EMC therms
But I do not understand, how you can use additional, Assargadon-made modules with LiveCD
answers are slow here
we have some kind of dialog with alex_joni
dumb answers are fast, good ones are slow
and fast good answers cost good money :)
hahahahhaa but i thought i could chat here ?
ken, of course. It was answer to you appointment about long-period answers
I have a little faster answers just now becouse of dialog :)
i know....i was just joking
so, if we looking at BigJohnT's theory
most wise answers will be newer told to us
Assargadon: it will be very inconvenient to build your own hardware drivers without installing emc2 to a hard drive
doesn't the module start at boot ?
no, the realtime modules are loaded when you start emc
jepler, so I can use LiveCD only with one of interface cards, listed in "supported hardware" list, don't I?
my dad has a gecko drive machine, will it work with emc?
soulrider: yes, emc is suitable for motor drivers that take step+direction signals, like the gecko drive.
as long as it's a machine that uses gecko motor drives and not the G100/G-Rex
im not familiar with this much, it s my dad that uses it
does ti have any software for drawing and converting that into code?
i think he uses artcam and mach3 on windows
emc is concerned with moving the motors according to the gcode instructions, not with writing gcode
EMC2 can replace Mach for any machine control function
so, i need to get the code form a program
and then put it on emc2
CAM is a little harder on Linux in general, so if the CAM software has to run on the same PC as the machine controller, it will take some thought
soulrider: that's an ideal solution
ah, cool :)
is it hard to write G code by hand?
it would be a nice project to make a program to write gcode :P
CAD/CAM on one PC, machine controller controlling the mill on another PC
there are some, but we don't know what you're starting with :P
i dont know muich about this.. its my dad that uses it =/
its just hes having some issues, and i was hoping i could help him
well, the first thing I'd say is - if it works, don't fix it
ok, issues means you want to fix it :)
and there are others, for images and stuff
soulrider: is it a router?
and GCam (I think), and cp1 or whatever it's called now
BigJohnT: i believe so
never heard of cp1 before
it's very old, started sometime when EMC was young
20 hours to Live EMC dowload
not very fast, isn't it?
Assargadon: are you downloading from the linuxcnc.org site?
no, from european mirror
as far as I understand
ok, Alex's site in .ro ?
ok. I was going to suggest that :)
(I don't know if it Alex'es or not, but in .ro)
that's probably the one
heh, 363 hours from native site :)
that does seem slow
man. I wish I needed to download something big. this hotel room has a T1 line
(the liveCD is a 45-minute download here)
* Assargadon don't know what T1 is
a 1.5megabit/second data line
She heard it's ""very fast internet connection line
in Hollywood films mainly
We use ADSL here in Russia
* Assargadon cannot choose
SHould I write some code for my miller or I should wait for EMC and trying to use it''''somehow
[16:03:12] <SWPLinux> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_device_bandwidths
lots of devices
Assargadon: that's a tough question. it is possible to install to a USB memory stick (if you can boot from USB). then you can write your own hardware driver
or more importantly, you can save it :)
I can install EMC on hard drive, as far as I understand this LiveCD description
I only hope I really can
as far as I failed to install Ubuntu last time I do it
how long ago?
approx 0.5 year
hmmm. how much memory do you have in the PC?
ok, that should be enough.
I know my problem
oh, then I'd fix it first :)
my problem is my HD is too big for my bios
I run my Ubuntu in some tricky way
and it work's perfect
yeah, GRUB has some support for that
but it wont's to load herself with their loader...I forget how it called
grub or lilo
By the way, this loader loads my windows perfectly :)
I have CD with tools especially made for loading a computer in different hard situations
it's generally easier to boot OSes that start below the BIOS limit. if Ubuntu is installed on a partition that starts above the limit, it's not as easy
not the LiveCD but soething to load one of installed OSes
anf bix bootfiles
and I can boot my ubuntu with it
and it's works :)
make sure you have a backup of that when you try installing the liveCD :)
So I'm not sure EMC don't kill my machine configuration :)
problem I cannot by a small enought HD
It's even hard to buy IDE HD at all
maybe I need buy new computer finally :)
you have a good excuse
casn someone tell me why my rad offset doesn't work ?
in mini..offsets...not g54...but the rad offset
Assargadon: can you buy small hd and swap them? small used 10G hd should be cheap.
ken: what's rad offset supposed to be?
tomp, financially yes, Practically no - no one selling it...
i thought it's what i set it to....useing 1/4" endmill..offset 3/8"
unless i'm don't know how to use it :)
don't you set it ...hit enter...then write and load ?
ken: I have no idea what you are talking about
sounds like tool diameter compensation.. but only vaguely :)
so why call it rad offset?
By the way, how big EMC2 is, if download without ubuntu, via this SH installation disk?
do you use mini ?
btw, I don't use mini...
*script, not disk
which do you use ?
Assargadon: 20-30MB maybe
and TkEmc sometimes
i'll try that
So maybe I should load myself to Ubuntu and install
instead of loading LiveCD
i like mini because i can switch from codes to backplot with just a click
ken: but for either one, you want to edit the tbl file
where is that thing ?
along with the rest of the configuration
I start to get a feeling you haven't read the docs yet ;)
yes...i've read thru most of it...but didn't see that part
i'n done no configuration since i started
guess i 'll go look for it....thanks
how dated is 'puppy' ? is it too old for Assargadon to try?
alex - Where would I go to try and insert a new G code - Interpreter?
I'd like to have a go at adding G12/G13 of the Haas format as it has the most usefullness
what's G12/13 ?
Circle cutting / circle pocketing / with optional multiple Z levels.
stepwise circular pocket, not helix... might be macro'd using o-words and no need to bother core code
SkullWorks_PGAB: then probably interpreter is all you need to touch
there are already helix macros in useful_subroutines.ngc
I had to write a Macro for Fanuc Macro B to use it when I was sent a bunch of Yaznaq programs to run. The code was full of them and it was simpler to add the macro to the machine so it would handle a G13 as if it were a factory command.
was the written code 'G13' ? ( which is like using unnassigned Gcodes or overloading )
Both Mills were Mori Seiki - so they just assumed I could use there existing programs.
come to think of it, some cncs look to filesystem or plc when they encounter a valid but unused g/m code, leaving hooks for 'vars' ( value added resellers' / non-oem middlemen )
well on some Fanuc you can define an unused Gcode to point to a O9000-O9019 program and anytime it sees your newly defined Gcode it passes all the parameters to the sub and executes it.
exactly ( back in my system 6 thru 9 days _
that was handy
soft extensions to the gcodes, sorta like g101 m101 file method in emc2
I was going to just try and port the macro which was written in the Yaznaq format ( you must allready be at the proper Z location, no Z moves are in the Yaznaq format)
did you try o-words ?
i dont know them but sounds like a tool for you to explore
but if I can get it working as part of interp I'd just submit it as and upgrade option - I know its not defined in the NGC.
Well That was my first plan - a simple Osub port - but if I can get it to function as a native command all the better
discuss the issue with dev on emc-devel before writing lotsa code for jury. they may not hink its an extension desirable to the community as a whole. if not, make your own , either interp or o-word or other :)
If O words passed parameters more clearly I would not bother.
ah, you've looked closer than i
maybe ask lerman, he may have some solution
he's author of the o-word
yeah thats best - I don't want to break anything
JymmmEMC: SWPLinux was looking for you
'he polished up the handles so cheer-ful-ly that now he is the ' author of the o-word :)
bbl off to work
O word (sounds like powerful majic or so my girlfriend might say.)
Did someone ring my bell?
The long term solution is user (or integrator) defined gcodes.
not really - I'm not ready for prime time yet, teacher, the dog ate my homework.
alex_joni: Well, when he finds me let me know, as I'm lost.
but I keep a spare EMC2 box around to try and break things :0
WTF?! 24bpp < 32,000 colors, right?
err > I mean
No. 16 bit ~ 32,000
lerman: Yeah, so if I have it set at 24bpp that's what 16.8M
Roughly. But I don't think my eyes are that good. :-)
Damn sw is whing that I dont have enough colors but it's set at 24bpp, (sigh)
alex_joni: thanks ;)
now you found each other.. how sweet
and it's all your fault
alex_joni: not as sweet as you are baby
16-bit == 65536 colors, 24-bit == 16777216 colors
if 16-bit is actually 15-bit, then it's 32768 colors
plus an extra bit
how about 32bit ?
if it were actually 32-bit color, then it would be 4294967296 colors
Ok, I found a bug in RDP then.
but it's generally implemented as 30-bit color and 2-bit "other"
(and I don't remember what 2^30 is at the moment)
other than 4294967296/4 ;)
TS client is set at 24bpp, xp video settings say it's at 16bpp, software complains it needs 32K colors (which 16bpp is), so there's bug or two somewhere in there.
try both at 24bit
alex_joni: I was trying to, yet when I RDP into XP (no mater what I have TS client set at), it still reports 16bpp.
Heh, maybe we now know what TS client is faster =)
SWPLinux: Now that you found me, where the hell am I ?
* JymmmEMC is still lost (since SWPLinux won't tell me where I am), and returns back to drawing or a close facsimile there of.
you are in a 10x10 cave, there is a small pile of rocks to your left. there are exits to the east and north.
what if there is no south?
are rocks really explosives?
you run into the cave wall causing a massive concussion
the ravenous bugb;atter beast hears the sound and eats you. game over
If o100 call   [.01] [.125] could be done as
o100 call X0 Y0 Z.01 F.125

o100 call X"0" Y"0" Z".01" F".125"
o100 call X=0 Y=0 Z=.01 F=.125
I would be happy - but I am in doubt as to if parameters/augments can be passed this way.
use explosive rocks to make exit to the South and scare the crap out of bear(s).

* SkullWorks_PGAB is having a "Snow Crash" from lack of coffee
* JymmmEMC is having a "snow crash" from too much caffiene yesterday... went to bed at 11p, didn't get to sleep till 4am today.
(wth ever a snow crash is)
anyone worked with homing a lot? I'm wondering what search velocity would be good for finding the index pulse
"Snow crash" is a geek cult classic (book)
SkullWorks_PGAB: ah, gotcha
snow crash is when you get random memory contents dumped to the video buffer
awallin: less than one encoder pulse per servo period
unless you have a ppmc
right. that sounds reasonable. I have 4000 counts per rev, with a 1 ms servo thread something below 1 count/1ms = 1000 counts/s.
awallin: I thought you have an m5i20 ?
then it shouldn't be such an issue
fenn: like this? http://cybernetnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/funny-error-message-1.jpg
as the m5i20 resets the encoder count when it sees the index
alex_joni: and it does that in the fpga?
ok, I might do some testing with this later. put a mic on the table and home the machine 100 times and see what spread of positions it gives
JymmmEMC: more like this http://www.bastwood.com/projects/aphex_face/aphex_demon.png
fenn: is that a legit random memory dump?
fenn: ok, looks cool though, and about how I feel atm.
its a fourier transform from 'windowlicker' with the wrong scale (log vs linear)
At least the pounding I hear in my head is real - they are tearing my roof up ($11,700 worth of damage :( )
from WHAT may i ask??
the bolt of all knowledge only caused about $9500 to my place
design defect caused a split in the roofing seam which allowed water to get in directly above the outer wall - there was structural rotting that was not apparent until a chunck fell down in the living room.
Insurance deems it was a Pre-existing issue and won't pay - so there goes my hobby budget for say the next 12-18 months.
SkullWorks_PGAB: I suspect you've checked for mold in all ext walls by now
SkullWorks_PGAB: can't you sue the original builder?
oh its obvious all around where the chunck fell out
It was hosed down with liberal amounts of 50-50 alcohol and bleach
was built in 58 and builder went to Vegas and went belly up years ago - variations of this problem have plagued many of the homes in this area - all same basic design.
i guess its a buyer beware situation that still sucks
SkullWorks_PGAB: When did you buy it?
most homes have had the eves collapse - mine didn't sag or anything - then a 8 x 12 chunk fell out 1 foot to the left of the front door.
I bought it in 89
SkullWorks_PGAB: I think you should sue the person/company that did the inspection when you bought the place.
SkullWorks_PGAB: Didn't you have the home inspected before buying it?
bought from the .gov
There should be an inspection report in the escrow.
unless you bought a foreclosure.
then I'm not sure how that works.
yeah well - there was no insulation, now the roof will be raised and there will be 2 layers of sheet plus 3" poly foam.
Inspections are suppose to check for things like damage, lead paint, asbestose, etc.
even forclosure's need inspections
and more recently mold too.
due to the overwhelming amount of deaths that have occured due to mold in walls.
When you buy from the .gov and the .gov insures the loan the wave much of the rules that apply to us normal citizens.
Maybe, but check your paperwork, an inspection (from a safety aspect) I dont think is something thay would slide by.
yeah they are tearing out all the effected areas because mold was found
SkullWorks_PGAB: HUD as in military loan?
Dept of Housing and Urban development.
SkullWorks_PGAB: Yes, but HUD does more than just military loans
that why I asked.
no I missed my window for military service.
Well, still check if there was an inspection performed and if not, why not.
If so, who did it.
Place was a total wreck when I bought it - there was an as-is clause on the contract.
Prior owner (when released from jail) came back and took a hammer and smashed in every switch and outlet he could find.
I bought a hud house years ago and when I sold it somewhere something was not signed properly and years later they wanted me to pay for the house
he also sheared off the gas line to the stove.
after about 15 years of me telling them to stick it where the sun don't shine they left me alone
SkullWorks_PGAB: If if that is the case, there is still a habitable portion of the law, else the local gov should have citied it uninhabitable.
locks had been changed so he just tossed a cinder block thru the kitchen window
SkullWorks_PGAB: It may not be a clear and straight forward case, but I think you have something you should look into.
he also used a pipe to smash holes in all the doors and kicked them in breaking the door jams. Used a crowbar to pull the bolt heads off the brass bolts holding the chandelier.
SkullWorks_PGAB: Was an inspection done so you would be aware of at least what you're getting into?
last but not least he Salted the front lawn with a few bags of snow melt salt.
this all happened between my bid and final closing.
HUD reps said I was SOL due to the as-is clause but did replace the front door.
did he go back to jail?
but I really did steal this place.
likely - but not for this.
I paid less than 63% of what it sold for 18 months earlier due to the condition it was in Before he broke in and trashed the joint.
once the repairs are completed it will be worth nearly 400% of my 1989 purchase price.
but what will it have cost you to put that way??
maybe when the housing market stabilizes I can sell it and buy a warehouse with a loft apt.
then I can have lots of room for machines and cars, motorbikes, and other vices and devices...
why did that guy mess up the house so badly?
he was busted in a dope deal - and his family bugged out while he was in jail and the place was repo'd
he came back with a few personal issues and a lack of anger management.
salting the lawn is just kinda twisted
there was no power in the south wall when I went to repair the damage - after crawling around I found he had cut the romex and used that circuit to try and set up a little hydroponics area for his cash crop of choice.
he had a large shed in a large dog run with 4 Dobermans - that shed was a growing room, breeding dobi's was just a way to keep visitors out of the shed.
might almost work..
you mentioned inspection - no one checked that shed I'm sure - cause when I moved in there were still like 70 bare stalks hanging roots up by fine wires - like fishing line.
till the power bills spiked
they should have tagged him for much more.
sound pretty hokey
yeah production for the purpose is taken seriously in your parts
neighbors were very glad he was gone.
i went thru a similar tho not so bad experience when we bought this place... looked at it on Wed. it looked good moved in on Fri. of the same week and all the doors and walls were punched full of holes
it is now - because with the RICO stuff in place now the .gov takes everything - its the .gov's cash maker.
Dry wall is cake work - rebuilding door frames was a pain.
same deal kicke them open 1 last time... ; ( 7 doors and frames ) ALL the closet doors and tracks
Oh yeah - I think he had something stashed in one of the walls - he tore out a 2ft square in one spot.
kitchen cabinets had had a butter knife taken to them... and the knife was left on the couner
cash or a gun
I been to the jail - the beds are concrete shelves with a 3" foam mattress - nothing to break...
ive never had the honor
contractor wants me to go fetch some materials - If I go - he keeps working.
not that i'm a saint... i just try to play smarter than the average bear
it is sunday
bring back a case a beer
JymmmEMC: yes stalks of weed
or pot hanging upside down
ah, pot hanging upside down
it's so the THC travels to the leaves as it dries out
dmess: it didnt scroll back far enough to see the beginning of the conversation
it can be done in the table so much faster and with better efeect
he baught a house and the shed had a grow room in it
ive grown ALL our required requirements for tomatoes,carrots potatoes,strawberries,snow peas, lettuce(leaf & romain ) for 2 full winter seasons off 1 (4 x 8 ) table...
[20:14:45] <jmkasunich> http://jmkasunich.com/pics/port-machined-2014.jpg
matching a (not very good) casting to the port on the block
Just cleaning it up or did you mill the whole part?
the outside is cast, as is the interior of the port, but the original passage is much smaller than the finished one
Looks like a smaller step size might be appropriate - lots of turbulance as it sits?!?
jmkasunich: how did you generate the g-code?
Ah, I'll bet that was an interesting exercise in fixturing!
DanielFalck: jepler has been working on something he calls offs - it does offsetting from a path
looks like waterline paths
I started with a path that defined the port at the block end, then did offsets and Z changes
right now you have to be a programmer to use it - the path is coded in C++ as calls to line and arc functions, and the levels and offsets are also coded as loops, etc
K`zan: the interesting fixturing was the other end - this end was easy, cause I mounted the other end to a block and stuck the block in the vise
sounds interesting. Thanks for the info on that. Looks like it worked well
this is the port before milling: http://jmkasunich.com/pics/block-end-faced-2007.jpg
the other end: http://jmkasunich.com/pics/carb-end-machined-1999.jpg
this goes on some engine?
yeah, mini-bike engine, 1 cylinder
a friend of mine is seriously into those - he had the castings made up and wants to sell them
is diy aluminium casting doable? would be fun...
its doable - there are folks on the interweb who have done it, lots of pointers
i dont recommend bare legs and sneakers
bare legs and long leather apron are a tick of the trade
leater work boot ( tied up)
nice. We've done lead-bulbs for model yachts: http://www.anderswallin.net/2003/05/making-a-bulb/
but that doesn't require the temperatures aluminium does
heh, casting manliness scale: lead, aluminum, iron
thats in there somewhere, along with tungsten
jmkasunich: Is there any particular reason the proggy is in c++ as opposed to python?
thats how jeff wrote it
which suits me, I'm better with C than py
jepler: see above
jmkasunich: Since everything else (front end) in emc is in python, and I've been condiering learning it, is why I was asking why in c++ (limitation, funcationality, speed, etc)
jmkasunich: did you cast that part?
for surface machining CAM I'm sure performance with python would be an issue... not sure about 2D offsets
awallin: Eh, I've seen jepler pull shit out of his butt in 20 minutes in python, when I only asked how something was done, he wrote a progyy in python that actually did it. I was impressed.
JymmmEMC: python is very good for fast prototyping purposes
yeah, jepler did gdepth pretty quickly, thought that was quite impressive
he is good at more than python
