cradek: it was g49 was the problem going between top/bottom progams. (or lack there of)
good, glad you got it working.
it was your thought - I think i would still be banging my head against the wall.
I would take a video of this but I would need more light and I think I have used up all the extension cords.
1 for vaccum pump = 1 for computer - 1 for rotozip - 1 for z axis - one for fan to cool vaccum pump.... :)
I need to clean this up some day.
I have all sorts of experience screwing up offsets, so I can spot stuff like that fast :-)
a video would be neat, but I understand its a pain to do
man I need a vacuum table
it is great. this was millitary surplus
the pump is the problem afaic
does it keep up while you're drilling?
and cutting the perimeter
it is a vane pump
people doing vacuum forming seem to use shopvacs
I hear it's not a very good idea though due to the motor heating
this is 1hp 13cfm - what good that is.]
yeah I wouldn't run a shopvac for very long without airflow - maybe 30 seconds

success again. :)
skunkworks: got another board made?
yes - last one. I swear.
this one is the prettyest.
new features or bugfixes?
bug fixes. It really doesn't need any new features. it does what it does.
it should be as simple as possible but no simpler
SWPadnos: The Sleestack looks better!
SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos

alex_joni: that's pretty good
JymmmEMC: yeah, nice
I wish ALL commercials were like that

hold on, switching to computer with speakers
then replace tech2 with tech3 and tech42
repaste those alex_joni
I want a shocking monkey too!
then replace tech2 with tech3 and tech42
in 42, what did squeaky say at the end?
didn't make it out.. can't turn up the volume - wife's asleep :D

Ah. HGTTG? As long as it doesn't have anything to do with "President Cigar"
Not HGTTG, Tech Support
That is the worse solder job EVER!
Anyone using Qcad? Any problems with freezing/crashing after awhile? What did you do about it?
two days of tidying my and re-arranging workshop, i have finally reached the stage where it looks better than when i started
The_Ball_: Well, guess that's better than looking WORSE than you started
yeah, you should have seen my living room with half my workshop stacked in it. i have accumelated to much "stuff", but all bits and pieces that COULD be usefull one day! like my pneumatic glue gun
Oh, I've been meaning to ask you guess... In respect to hardware (nuts, screws, bolts, washers, etc), how are you all sorting your stuff out, and into what?
by the latin description
haha, well don't ask me, you don't want to follow my example
Well, I have 2.5lb screw on lid plastic cashew jars... been working great as they stack well. drywall screws in one, wood screws in another, just not exactly sure on machine threaded stuff.
metric/impreial threads as two jars, SS as a third?
metric in the jar, imperial in the bin...
* The_Ball_ ducks
oh gawd, bad soldering and now... http://www.vslinux.net/openwrt/fonerahacks/ram32m_2.jpg
well it'll be easy to track who modded it
the mac address showing?
I dont think they care, as they cut a slot in the side
I'm more curious as to what/how they liquid got there
wouldn't that be a standard pcb sealer?
conformal coat you mean?
yeah, btw, where did you spot the mac?
by the really shitty soldering job, I seriously doubt it.
on the sticker =)
remove the filename from the url
it's probably a bit of jam, hehe
is it possible to use a dual display with emc (axis), i have a normal screen 1366Xsomething and I also have a 800x600 touchscreen which would be nice to mount on the mill and use as a DRO
you can run a second GUI on the second display
as a secondary X server, or a xinerama setup?
i think a secondary x server would be the best setup for me as the touch screen works as its own mouse
Two displays would be nice, but will it work? Can you run more than one instance of axis? Or run axis plus tkemc or whatever?
KimK, axis plus tkemc would be my preferred setup
And that will work? I've never tried that.
Be right back, I'm going to see if 8.10 helps Qcad any.
8.10 didn't help Qcad at all, going back to 8.04, brb
I haven't been able to get ahold of Roland yet but I'll try again this afternoon.
long time no see.. hope all is well
BigJohnT: it did work out eventually with that weld
networksolutions makes me want to cry
we don't mind
we won't tell
by "cry," i meant "tearing up and ranting endlessly"
oh, sure, expressing genuine human emotion makes you afraid
no ssl for the website, no encrypted upload "solution"
that would be frustrating
even the "file manager" link on the site redirects to a normal http link
which is fucking stupid, because the control panel from which the file manager is launched uses an SSL connection
it's idiocy like this that makes me want to go on a shooting spree
i must first unveil their stupidity in front of their faces
and use the f-word at least once
ooh, "customer service"
if their tech support is in India, I can suggest a few Hindi curse words
wtf? my ftp accnt lost upload access for no reason
that will work of course
wtf? i can "ls," "get," but i can"t fucking "put"
Hi alex_joni. Sorry I missed your note. All is well.
"out of curiosity, are you in india" "no sir, we"re in southeast asia."
india is south central asia
[16:56:32] <alex_joni> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RNNwaWeMv0
eric_unterhause1: my point was that it made no difference.
if you get someone in southwest asia, that means al Qaeda is pickin' up the phone and you better not cuss at them
rayh: cool, glad to hear that
You get stuck on that install, or what, alex
"as of january 24, we support ssh" ok, what"s the host and user/pwd pair? "same as ftp" /me ssh firstname.lastname@example.org (access denied) "well this was very recent, and it works with filezilla" but I can"t even ssh into the account properly "yes but it works with filezilla." can you try sshing into the account? "this was a very recent internal announcement and we haven"t been trained properly to use this feature."
fuck this. i"m going for dreamhost.
alex_joni: did I read in the mailing list that you were demoing a Mach plasma table?
or having to deal with one :)
wtf? no tel contact for dreamhost?
DanielFalck: having to deal with one
DanielFalck: managed to get it to crash repeatedly by loading a program.. that was a real wtf moment
and the same program offseted by 30 mm in y worked
I diff-ed it to make sure - nothing else changed :/
alex_joni: was it a customer's machine that you had to trouble shoot?
really.... something wackey there
was it crasing into a y limit??
dmess: far from it
DanielFalck: no, just a machine the customer had
I had other things to do, but they asked me to help with a design
I think it's funny that maddash just rants and raves on shit, then just leaves before anyone can give him a hand/suggestion.
specificically in respect to networking too
Alex... so did you ever figure it out???
if moving it over 30mm fixed it, it must be limits or something like that
not a good idea == whole wheat fig newtons
good evening.i have one meccanical system with 10mm/rev gear and encoder with 2048imp/rev.i use the hm2-pci driver for 5i20 card.I have write in input scale encoder 8192 cout, but the step movement exmp:0.1mm non is realy.the machine move 10 mm.because? thanks
dmess: nope, didn't even attempt to
ah i see...
motioncontrol: you ask for 0.1mm movement and you get 10mm, is this correct?
yes the question is correct
you dropped some zero's somewhere
it's not a meters/mm problem...
.1 m would get you 100mm
i don't thing .i thing the problem is vaule scale encoder
would/could input scale be in nanoimeters perhaps??
2 axis move correct.the meccanica gear is 1mm/rev.the 3° axis is 10mm/rev
the encoder is all 2048 imp/rev
00 mm/ rev and 2048 imp /rev means you need to have 20480 counts/mm
so you don't write 8192, but 20480..
yes... something like that
alex_joni: you just ruined my theory
i wodered where that # come frome anyway
exuse and good evening alex.the encoder is quadrature encoder 2048 x4 =8192
ok, so if you move 1 unit, does the motor make 1 full turn?
needs to have 81920 as scale
dmess: hmm.. if it's 10mm/rev then it's 819.2
(my math was slightly backward there :)
lemme think ive been sick
it's not TPI for us mm-guys
it's IPT ;)
makes it a little odd as i sometimes swap thins around
my unit is mm no inch.2 axis set 8192 scale necoder and have gear 1mm/rev.the move the 2 axis is correct in increment.the 3° axis ave 8192 scale encoder , but the gear is 10mm/rev.the movement the 3° axis is no corretct.i move 0,1 mm and it move 1 mm.
why would a mm guy use inches per thread?
because in europe the gear is in mm for rev
its called the pitch
sorry, being a smart alec about mm guy using inches
motioncontrol: is it 1mm or 10mm when you ask for ,1mm?
and I'm the smarty pants in here OK ;)
because 10mm would suggest you multiplied when you should have divided
yes... like i did
the movement is moltiplier for 10.if i move 0,1 the movement is 1 mmm, if i move 1 mm the move is 10mm
i thing change the scale encoder at 819.2 tommorrow for prove
sounds like a good idea
thenks for all
hmm that was too easy

.... 6 more sleeps.... i can hardly wait
we had one nice day on friday, melts most of the snow, and then it's frigid again
yes same here melting on Friday deep freeze on Saturday morning
missed another chance to try to type something obnoxious before the bot got kicked
i hate when that happens
good evening.i have installed emc2.2.8 and i have upgrade the error message at it_axis and it_rs274_err, but when i have the following error the text is in english exmpl:jont 0 following erroe.because?
motioncontrol: there are technical limitations in emc that prevent those messages from being translatable.
ok thanks.i thing this message is write no in po module but internal code
jepler what is halgui?
motioncontrol: an unfinished program; I don't believe it does anything useful
ok thanks.i want use the emc with no gui , but if i write in ini file #DISLAY = AXIS , the emc retur error.can i write the my user interface , you are one ideas for symple start?
ok with dunmmy the not open the interFACE?
# dummy display just waits for <ENTER>
echo "DUMMY DISPLAY MODULE, press <ENTER> to continue."
this is what the emc script does when you specify DISPLAY=dummy
ok thaks jepler.
electronics pricing is strange
I needed a USB cable with a mini connector on it - intend to cut the cable and use the end
cheapest one in the store $17.99 - ick
then I look in the clearance crap bin, and there is a mini-USB hub - 4 port hub, with a mini-USB connector on the computer and, and a standard to mini USB cable
hub _and_ cable: $4.99
so I could throw away the hub and still be $13 ahead
or goto the dollar store and get a $1 mini cable ;)
I was already in the computer store for something else
40 to 44 pin IDE adapter - not likely a dollar store item
depends on how good a dollar store you have ;)
I think the dollar stores around here have little or no computer stuff
i like vallue village type shops
its the wrong end
damn camera uses something even smaller than mini-USB
or princess auto's bins of surplus got my wall wart as a radiocharger fot 1.99
[21:10:32] <jmkasunich> http://jmkasunich.com/pics/mach-vision/test1-raw.png
the dollar tree chain seems to have USB stuff
hmm.. wine is wireless ... and pretty useles in linux
the camera in that picture
wine is better without wires ;)
wtf does wine have to do with cameras?
is it from Aiptek?
ah... they like using the 4 pin mini USB connectors
I know that now :-(
hard to find htem cheap... other then the included cable, the only other source is the universal cable kits
if it helps i have 1 here
I have the included cable, but it has a freaking huge ferrite lump on it
1" diameter and nearly 2" long, only an inch from the camera and of the cable
weighs more than the camera
thanks your friends in Washington ;)
can't have cables radiating stuff.... some one might complain about bad TV reception ;)
a few loops on a ring is all it needs even 1-2M away
[21:14:29] <jmkasunich> http://jmkasunich.com/pics/mach-vision/test2-flat.png
shows the lump
this is for a mobile robot using vision - I need a short cable to my mini-ITX mobo, not 6' with a lump on it
unprocessed image: http://jmkasunich.com/pics/mach-vision/test2-raw.png
jmkasunich: are you using Linux?
I might wind up removing the connector from the camera board and soldering a cable right to it
ds3: of course
jmkasunich: what driver are you using with that camera?
looks like gspca
and it works well?
at least, that is the module that loads when I plug in the camera
nice and intuative ehh
ISTR I had to compile the driver on this box
that was a long time ago - I used this camera at the CNC workshop last summer
interesting... so not all aiptek's aretroublesome
what kind of troubles?
I think I've actually had this one 2 or 3 years
I wasn't getting reliable pictures
tried to dropback to gphoto2 but the aiptek's didn't work with gphoto2 (for capture)
aiptek's are nice, they show up in the sub $10 bins
had to fall back to a repurposed disposable digital camera
I probably paid about $30 (but that was a while ago)
when I was using it as a webcam at the cnc workshop, I was using vgrabbj to capture images
for this project, I didn't want an image on disk, I wanted to capture to a memory buffer and then start processing
so I got the vgrabbj source and used the relevant parts
gspca is odd, it works fine with some cameras but not others... aipteks were the least reliable
got a URL for vgrabbj? I been using svv
if you are using ubuntu, there is already a package
damn.... I need to clean my bench off
cleaning bench <--- most dreaded chore
BigJohnT_ is now known as BigJohnT
nevermind... it is v4l only
Does (AXIS,hide) only hide the g-code from the extents displayer? It still seems to show the tool moving and cutting that section of g-code. Am I doing something wrong? I thought it would hide the whole procedure?
KimK: (AXIS,hide) hides the line from AXIS
that way it doesn't get displayed
if you want to remove the line from g-code you can :
- either delete it
it hides it from the _preview_
it doesn't stop the machine from cutting it
- or use () around the whole block you want removed
and the display during cutting shows whatever the machine does
- or use an o-word to jump over that part
OT but if anyone has an idea... If I have a router setup to issue ip's via DHCP on the lan side, but have setup one host to be in DMZ, what/where do you usually configure DHCP to assign the PUBLIC dns server to the DMZ host, and not the private DNS server?
Oh, OK, it just hides it from the preview. Got it. It is showing the cutting, now I understand. Thanks!
this board is supposed to use less than 1/2A at 12V
but they put that stupid 4 pin "extra 12V" header on it
your atom mobo?
now I gotta find a mating connector at 6pm on a sunday
is it the square one?
(the only PS I have handy doesn't have the extra 4 pins)
I need this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200084
but I need it NOW, not a couple days from now
jmkasunich: got an old ATX PSU?
have any spare pc you can steal from?
you can cut off 4 pins from the connector
"old" ATX supplies don't have the 4 pin connector
jmkasunich: Actually, some do
no, but they have a full sized one
JymmmEMC: those are new ATX'es
alex_joni: I know what you mean
alex_joni: yhe PS I have here for a P3 mobo has it
find the matching round/square pins, and saw them off
I actually have an 18 pin connector and I'm thinking about whacking one end off
JymmmEMC: in dhcp3-server on hardy, the manpage implies that you can put settings like 'option routers' and 'option domain-name-servers' in a subnet block
jepler: Ah, thankyou!!!
well.. I'm off to bed
good night all
alex_joni: Heh... you are a rubbery kinda guy!
good night alex_joni
jmkasunich: do you have any spare server systesm?
I've done much less dumpster diving lately
any 1U PS?
I'm in the process of removing a 4-pin section from one end of an 18-pin connector I had around
jepler: do you which man page that was in?
murphy decided that although this 4-pin chunk of connector has 2 yellow and 2 black, they are reversed from the proper pinout
I'm closer to fingering this out
cut the connector, verifiy that it fits, go looking for a make molex to splice it to - and now I can't find the one I cut
jmkasunich: It fell under the table, behind the thingy that's dark, dusty and JUSt out of reach.
or under the fridge
actually, no - I just had an attack of stupid and put it back in the container with the harness I cut it off of
anyway, none of this makes intels decision to put that connector on the board any less stupid
why didn't they just take their 12V from the 24 pin connector?
for more amperage
the board uses less than 1/2 amp
you need more power... how can you keep your hands warm
jmkasunich: it's just what I read in the ATX2.1 spec (iirc)
JymmmEMC: I know thats why they use the 4 pin connector on mainstream mobos
but it doesn't make sense on the Atom board
steves_logging is now known as steve_stallings
Why not just put some heavy jumpers on the bottom of the Atom board from the 12 volts on the 24 pin connector to the 4 pin connector?
