somethings wrong with their database
it looked pretty banged up when it got here,.. thought i could never get it to work again
fragalot, is that an intel xeon, looks similar to a noisy heap I refuse to use here
apparently, PCB's are stronger than steel when it comes to high impact resistance.
hence the 2 heatsinks :p
I have spares, but its getting full of metal filings
had to replace the cpu's as the pins broke off due to the blunt force created by (what appeared to be) quite the fall....
costed me 650 euro in total thanks to customs,.. and the insurance on it by usps refusing to work on my case
customs held it for over 2 months, and want me to pay bloody storage fees
why arent there any neat wire edm power circuits out there..
anonimasu: because it's patented?
you have not published one yet
I doubt it
wtf is wire EDM?
i could have used 1 of those about 20 yrs ago.... parabolic trough pre-heater for your hot water tank...
same as EDM only it uses wire not a shape
and EDM maens... ?
electro discharge machining
or 40 mega-watt generating station in the mojave desert a few yrs after a set of plans go missing from a national science fair where i was presenting thanks to winning the SUNCOR award
im looking for a video for you
or spark eroder
its controled arc burn..
can be cheaply made
sime controlled... i hate stringers... and cling ons with plunge EDM
I got a circuit the other day
I do that on daily basis.. getting accuracies of ~2mm :p (welding could be classed as "controlled arc burn" .. couldn't it? :p)
yes.. semi precise even...LOL
do you have an arc air machine???
arc welder and nozzle to blow air at a carbon lance/electrode??
well, smaw/tig combo
wire edm's mean sharp inner corners
in carbide :)
naw wont do... this uses 3/8 carbon rods... and blows shit out and away
well.. wire rad..is the minimum
and as a die maker THAT isnt sharp.. still needs an insert
did you check what wire dias they sell?
in any mat'l worth its matter you need .010" or your setting up for alotta time on the machine... rethreading??
.002" wire is for foil sfuff.. and not much morre.. think how much POWER a .002" wire can carry...
depends on how long it is and how effectively it is cooled
.001” dia wire cut with .0015” corner radii and a positional accuracy of ½ of a micron. (0.00002” or twenty millionths).

archivist: depends on wether the workshop door is open or closed
thru 1.5" of A2 @ Rc-62-64 right??

<- might be interesting
some tcl tools to generate g-code for emc2
whats wrong with APT360 & vapt
or an editor
code raw :)
dmess: nothing .. if you know how to use it
oh sorry.. i thought we all DID.. know how to use it..
any apt you need... i can probably provide... ; )
alex... APT360... is quite easy to get the hang of for simple 2-1/2 d stuff..
3-d control over 5 axis... is quit a learning curve
but with VAPT on linux... its so much easier than in the past 45 years
i've done some stuff here at home in 1 nite that took a guy 4 days in catia... and the simulated code is nearly identical
they ran his... and it crashed the machine guards... mine missed by about 1/4"
upon investigations... small changes in A-B angles made clearance in APT360.. but NOT in Catia.. v5 r18... we win..
dmess: heh :)
well.. I'm off to bed
good night all
the retarded part is i started with its "dumb" apt as source
it was a 7 axis machine to 5 axis machine swap... whats the dillio
anonimasu: July 2004 Model Engineers Workshop has part 5 of a PWM spark controller and a wire drive controller, happens to be the only edition of that mag i purchased though
Hello, i need some help compiling EMC2-2.2.6 on my Hardy Heron machine.
SkinnYPuPp: I'd really love to have a peek at the pwm spark controller
HRyba, download this script http://www.linuxcnc.org/hardy/emc2-install.sh,
follow instructions here, step 3 - 7 should sort u out, http://www.linuxcnc.org/content/view/21/4/lang,en/
robh: Currently, I don't have an internet connection on my machine. I did download the source from sourceforge, and place it on my computer, following the instructions. I get an error saying that the RT is not found.
HRyba, probably easier to use the live cd
I don't want to overwrite my current installation of ubuntu, though. Is it possible to do that without wiping my system, and not dual-booting?
as archivist said, pick up live cd, take it from there, as if complile ull find u need other things most likly also
HRyba, you will need to put the realtime etc on as well, so would need the internet connection, cd has it all, and you can try without installing
ok, thanks for your help.
if u need to keep things only in home folder, u could install live in advance mode i belive tell it to keep home folder unformated, if u trust it ;)
Would it keep my system properties and such?
if you install it..
if you just run the livecd it would
HRyba: compiling emc2 is a bit tedious as it depends on pretty many things(and foremost the realtime kernel is not trivial to compile yourself)
HRyba: if you only want simulation and not running an actual machine I can verify the instructions on 8.04 near the bottom of this page work just right..i have sim only on my laptop so no r/t needed.
