#emc | Logs for 2008-06-20

[00:42:47] <LawrenceG> the only problem with fest being on is that irc goes dead :}
[00:50:54] <LawrenceG> festcam appears to be stuck again.....
[02:56:30] <tom1> i have hardy and I loaded emc afterward, how do I get battery status?
[03:41:22] <skunkworks> internet went down at the fest. (still down)
[03:43:21] <DanielFalck> skunkworks: how are things going there?
[03:47:33] <skunkworks> Great. There should be a video soon of cradeks 5 axis machine physically doing thishttp://youtube.com/watch?v=_tA-W7nTNSc
[03:47:33] <skunkworks> sorry http://youtube.com/watch?v=_tA-W7nTNSc\
[03:48:29] <skunkworks> internet at the hotel is a bit sketchy too ;)
[03:50:04] <skunkworks> one more time http://youtube.com/watch?v=_tA-W7nTNSc
[13:13:50] <als> Are there any video of the motor mount machining or cradek's 5 axis running the sphere?
[13:16:18] <jepler> als: no. we recorded a video of the sphere yesterday but the internet has been unavailable at the shop so it hasn't made it online.
[13:16:53] <als> looking forward to it
[13:18:01] <anonimasu> * anonimasu too
[13:19:33] <lerman_> lerman_ is now known as lerman
[13:20:31] <archivist> boris chewed the network cable?
[13:23:15] <Guest538> Don't know. Hope they get it worked out today. The modem was not connecting.
[13:23:25] <Guest538> Guest538 is now known as skunkworks_
[13:25:22] <anonimasu> ok
[14:42:15] <micges> hello
[14:42:56] <BigJohnT> hi
[14:45:08] <micges> BogJohnT: your last machine is plasma right ?
[14:48:19] <micges> BigJohnT: your last machine is plasma right ?
[14:48:27] <BigJohnT> yes
[14:49:19] <micges> what kind of THC do you have ?
[14:49:37] <BigJohnT> none yet, I'm using a floating head with a drag tip
[14:59:10] <alSMT> still no contact from fest?
[15:05:13] <anonimasu> crap. rutex is out of stock on the thc stuff.'
[15:07:12] <BigJohnT> what stuff anonimasu
[15:08:44] <anonimasu> all of it..
[15:08:56] <anonimasu> even the circuit boards.. are out of stock
[15:09:00] <anonimasu> oxyfuel.. thx
[15:09:46] <BigJohnT> dang
[15:09:48] <anonimasu> thc..
[15:11:10] <BigJohnT> so rutex is for commercial plasma and oxy systems?
[15:11:46] <anonimasu> comercial?
[15:12:01] <anonimasu> they are the only ones I've found that sells the sensors
[15:12:08] <anonimasu> I didnt look too much as I saw them before..
[15:12:14] <anonimasu> my sensor supplier dosent for sure
[15:13:00] <BigJohnT> hmmm, they have a voltage divider...
[15:13:22] <alSMT> not in stock
[15:13:41] <BigJohnT> looks simple
[15:13:57] <anonimasu> ask rugdallue about building one :P
[15:14:02] <anonimasu> rugdallur
[15:14:21] <anonimasu> the thc for oxyfuel is a capacitive sensor
[15:14:22] <BigJohnT> I have a set of schematics for one
[15:14:58] <anonimasu> I think he ended up buying a comercial system because he couldnt get rid of the hf noise
[15:15:17] <BigJohnT> that's why I bought a Hypertherm...
[15:15:26] <anonimasu> * anonimasu nods
[15:15:51] <BigJohnT> brb have to start the mill up
[15:16:06] <anonimasu> * anonimasu does oxyfuel because he's plasma is too smal
[15:16:07] <anonimasu> l
[15:16:45] <anonimasu> I've been cutting some 40mm sheet metal :)
[15:17:25] <BigJohnT> 40mm is oxyfuel land for sure
[15:17:41] <BigJohnT> mine is rated for 30mm severance
[15:18:15] <BigJohnT> as I understand it now severance is a french word for really ugly cut
[15:18:19] <anonimasu> I cant remember the plasma we have what it cuts..
[15:18:21] <anonimasu> but it's not 40mm
[15:18:22] <anonimasu> for sure
[15:18:35] <anonimasu> :)
[15:20:29] <anonimasu> the torch I have on the oxyfuel is rated to 500mm
[16:24:14] <SkullWorks_PGAB> "anonimasu: the torch I have on the oxyfuel is rated to 500mm" - How many O2 cylinders do you have to keep hooked up at one time foe a 500mm cut?
[16:28:45] <alSMT> Still no modem at fest?
[17:21:50] <anonimasu> SkullWorks_PGAB: I dont know :)
[17:22:10] <anonimasu> SkullWorks_PGAB: it's still considerably cheaper then plasma for the amount i cut per year
[18:38:57] <endmill> Does anyone know why emc would freeze if you have a tool call?
[18:41:27] <acemi> does the computer freeze or only the emc?
[18:55:04] <alex_mobile> Hi
[18:56:27] <acemi> hi alex_mobile
[19:00:23] <alex_mobile> What's up?
[19:00:59] <acemi> fine, u?
[19:02:40] <alex_mobile> Yeah, just had dinner...
[19:03:30] <alex_mobile> Sitting on a nice terasse
[19:04:40] <acemi> me too, near the bosphorus
[19:04:44] <alex_mobile> acemi: watching the game?
[19:04:54] <acemi> game?
[19:05:26] <alex_mobile> Turkey-Croatia
[19:05:55] <acemi> yes
[19:05:59] <alex_mobile> soccer
[19:06:04] <acemi> hmmm no
[19:06:17] <acemi> İ'm not interested in football
[19:06:37] <alex_mobile> turkey did a nice job so far
[19:07:08] <acemi> there is nobody in the streets now
[19:07:39] <acemi> all are watching the game
[19:07:45] <alex_mobile> Odd :)
[19:52:19] <Guest543> \help
[21:06:27] <micges> alex_mobile: what team do you want to win ?
[21:06:49] <alex_joni> micges: no idea
[21:07:13] <alex_joni> oh, forgot to close my mobile ;)
[21:10:47] <alex_joni> micges: probably croatia
[21:13:40] <micges> mee too
[21:14:13] <micges> I didn't saw game, only radio shortcuts
[21:14:14] <endmill> Sorry I had to step out acemi, As for my posted question about EMC freezing if I call a tool, only EMC freezes.
[21:14:48] <anonimasu> hm.
[21:15:42] <endmill> It was working fine then after getting my home switches wired I set up my system to use them now I can not call tools.
[21:16:40] <acemi> endmill: then I've no suggestion
[21:17:53] <acemi> alex_joni: the city are crying
[21:18:27] <endmill> I have machined several times and had no trouble now I can not even run the same programs.
[21:18:56] <endmill> Well I guess I will go through all my settings again and see if I have missed anything.
[21:19:17] <endmill> I even tried to replace the Tool.tbl just incase I messed it up some how.
[21:19:46] <BigJohnT> what is messed up endmill ?
[21:20:18] <endmill> I can not seem to make Tool Calls in my GCODE or EMC will lock.
[21:21:12] <BigJohnT> what have you changed or added since it last worked?
[21:22:08] <alex_joni> endmill: what are tool calls?
[21:22:17] <endmill> I configured my pin setup and files to use my home switches.
[21:22:30] <BigJohnT> hi alex_joni
[21:22:33] <endmill> T01 or T02
[21:23:41] <BigJohnT> are you doing a M6 T1?
[21:24:50] <endmill> No but I have tried that but with the M6 after the T1.
[21:26:09] <endmill> I will give that a try. Be back..
[21:26:15] <BigJohnT> if you run EMC with the old config (you did save it right) you have no problems?
[21:32:45] <alex_joni> sounds like the loopback might be missing
[21:32:55] <alex_joni> iocontrol.0.tool-prepare to tool-prepared
[21:34:06] <BigJohnT> I think that was the same one kirk was missing the other day
[21:34:43] <als> any word from fest today?
[21:39:33] <alex_joni> only that internet is out
[21:39:43] <als> bummer
[21:45:56] <BigJohnT> endmill: this page on wiki has all the info about manual tool change http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Tool_Changes
[21:47:08] <BigJohnT> endmill: I'll be back in a bit
[22:00:01] <alex_joni> g'night all
[22:13:46] <endmill> Thanks I will check the loop back as well as check out the info on maual tool changes.
[22:19:31] <endmill> I see what your talking about now that I have read the info on tool change. I will run out and give it a try.
[22:33:28] <endmill> That was it thanks everyone for your help.... I have home working and now need to get my limits working. To cool.
