hehe hes started on you now fenn
been going on and on and on......
2:42 am here time for home I think
mm, finished my 3-axis stepper controller last night :D
testing will have to wait till tonight tho :(
sweet Sweeper do you have pics
hey does anyone know if K'zan got cutter comp working?
I'll continue my work today at least :)
After a hude amount of time...
K'zan gets this message, Log on 2008/06/16 "Cutter gouging with cutter radius comp" I believe he needs to make a short XY move after calling radius comp like G01 X.5Y0F?
if someone could mention this to him if he come back in
part of the forcast today includes 'light tornadoes'
fenn: ineteresting cairo app, sorta but not really cad http://www.entidi.it/adg/
eh ok, it's a decent start but not much there.. not even up to 'sketchpad' level
eagle pcb is pro one of the best CAD apps for linux
like, offset/trim/extend is the only thing i can think off it doesnt so well
qcad works but mostly it just feels like autocad but not as good
renesis: what kind of "feel" do you think is best?
people tend to prefer whatever they started with
autocad is perfect
and no i didnt start on that
and qcad is ribbonsoft leftovers
it feels as such
eagle is basically console cad with worlds worst gui and most fucked up learning curve ever
I'm spoiled on Solidworks
that doesnt work in linux
and autocad is better for 2d i think
and cost $5k
no its free, trust
so is autocad
* renesis only uses free software
the dimensioning stuff in SW is like overkill for simpler 2D shit
good morning rayh
instead of drawing it and then defining it and dealing with possibly conflicting relations, in acad you just draw it
rayh: how was fest?
but yeah for 3d, especially simple 3d and assemblies, SW is very very fast
I can do 2d print faster in SW by making a 3d model first than I can in ACAD
im going to do all the cabinets at my work in sw
yeah but thats not 2d thats a mechanical drawing of a 3d part
anything involving 3d solidworks is just gonna be better than acad at
i wont even touch acad 3d
but yeah, i like drawing, so autocad workflow is very neat for drawings
for 2d work I make a model in SW then save the print as ACAD then open it up in MC
i dont like the 2d editor in SW so much unless im sourcing the parts from the 3d editor
yeah thats alot more work than just drawing it
you have to draw it twice and do file export bs
instead of, new, draw, save
oh no only have to draw it once
oh i read wrong
yeah thats not so bad
if i had to choose one or the other, id have to go with sw
but nothing beats acad at 2d
thats like the only bloatware app i use i feel like its perfect
I can still make a model and a drawing in SW faster than in ACAD
depends on what it is
in autocad im mostly just typing on the console, and shit is happening
are you guys done yet?
i dont even mouse much
no im willing to babble on about this forever if people keep going on about it
* renesis shrug
tomp: i'd rather use an object oriented language than some c object library
adg is more trouble than it's worth
goocanvas provides almost all the functionality except chamfers and radiuses (?)
fenn: i'll look into goocanvas, thx
Anastasia is now known as K`zan_emc
sill hot there?
I guess the sill would be too
SWPadnos: I've been reading some thigns where a dedicated application is being tossed in an FPGA and runs MUCH faster than current pc/cpu's. Any trith to that?
for some applications, it's quite true
SWPadnos: Like how much faster and in what case?
the last couple versions of Altium Designer have the ability to turn some C functions into dedicated hardware
hundreds of times faster
things like video processing, where you have a particular pipeline you need to push a lot of pixels through
other DSP-like things
that works best when the CPU is also embedded in the FPGA, I think
SWPadnos: So number crunching being the biggest performance increase over running on a Quad core 3GhZ?
generally getting data into/out of a processor core is a bottleneck
doing a specific sequence of operations on a stream of data would tend to have the greates tspeedup, I'd think
but on a cost basis, the quad core CPU is probably still a better "deal"
there wasa socket-940 high gate count FPGA available for a while, but it was $9000 or so
a specific example: http://www.madboa.com/geek/openssl/#benchmark-speed
says a Core 2 can do "des ede3" at 0.39 gigabit/second, while http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/application_notes/xapp270.pdf
says a xilinx spartan-ii can do 13.3Gb/s. Even if you can get 4x the throughput on 4 cores, that's still 10% as fast as the FPGA.
it often boils down to transferring data into/out of the FPGA
(and that's a 2001 article, presumably you could go faster and/or put more des3 cores on one chip now; even then, nearly 2 cores fit on one chip)
:) anyone making chips today?
no, but I may eat some soon
* chr0n1c went to work for 4 hours this morn... played with some brushed aluminum dash overlays for a camaro and then came home...
the silly laser cutter people leave some burnt scuxzz around all the edges i gotta clean like 4000000 pcs with laquer thinner
laquer thinner and a paper towel
uhh did i spell that wrong? geez
i wish the spell checker would check, after all that's what it's supposed to do!
Argh, anyone know what CUPS is looking for for a login / password on the 6.06 EMC distro. Neigher root nor myself works :-( and of course no help from CUPS :-(
There is no user "CUPS" only: cupsys:x:100:106::/home/cupsys:/bin/false
what are you trying to do with CUPS?
all my printers just worked when i plug them in i never had to mess with cups
lp was not half the nightmare CUPS is...
plug in the usb cable... wait a few seconds then print
Printer is plugged in on the server in the other room :)
ohh if it's a windows printer you need to use the password and login from the windows box
linux server :-)
well then use those passwords?
No go on that either. Did I miss saying I hate CUPS, a goddamn troll for support extortion :-(.
Piece of fecal matter...
google "cups network print 6.06"
Enter your username and password or the root username and password to access this page
Neither worked. Sigh.
And *after* you go through all the setup...
cranial rectal inversion, sigh.
cups wants root password
if there is no root password set with su passwd then you prpbably don't have a root password
which.. would make cups not accept any attempts at using a password
.. i think i'm right on that
I have a root password and can su - to it with no problem in a terminal, otherwise my personal works with most everything else.
are root and your user account members of the printing group whatever it's called?
on the print server box*
.. don't listen to me i don't no junk about cups anyways
offtopic: i just found a "stop drug ads" petition, lol
what happens when you goto http://127.0.0.1:631
? ( thats where you config you cups printer )
chr0n1c: I think so, usually are, but checking
yep, got lpadmin
easier to copy a 4k file to a CD and take it over :-)
jeez at least scp the file
yeah ftp or something
i email things to myself @ gmail when i don't have a usb flash drive handy
12 more sugar snap pea seeds just got planted in the J garden ;)
i'm not sure on vegetable export laws but i'll share when they are done
k`zan did you getradius comp working?
K`zan read back I IRC you earlier ^^ or read the log bbl
