[00:03:35] <BigJohnT> shrdlu-: are you using lots of short arcs/lines at high speed?
[00:04:06] <shrdlu-> I'm trying to raster with the laser. scan the axis from one side to the other in one smooth motion
[00:04:13] <shrdlu-> fire the laser at appropriate points
[00:05:47] <BigJohnT> ahh ok
[00:06:33] <shrdlu-> but it seems that either EMC, or my setup, will not allow two commands at the same time
[00:08:08] <shrdlu-> which kinda means I've wasted a lot of time, money and screwed my clients over
[00:12:46] <BigJohnT> sounds like it is time for a beer :)
[00:13:43] <BigJohnT> * BigJohnT heads up to get some chow
[00:13:57] <shrdlu-> or suicide
[00:14:06] <shrdlu-> I might melt my face off with the laser
[00:19:49] <shrdlu-> are there any other gcodes that I can play with that will effect how smoothly two commands transition?
[00:21:58] <shrdlu-> maybe I'm not blending it right
[00:24:03] <Guest374> is the emc documentation done in open office?
[00:27:37] <JymmmEMC> raster using using arcs... huh?
[00:29:26] <shrdlu-> I'm not using arcs
[00:29:56] <JymmmEMC> Well, HPGL is a vector language, not raster.
[00:30:20] <shrdlu-> it contains both
[00:30:35] <shrdlu-> HP-RTL
[00:31:44] <shrdlu-> but this isn't even properly featured hpgl. It uses PU and PD for switching the laser on and off, x and y as normal
[00:31:52] <shrdlu-> and it's completely smooth
[00:38:43] <shrdlu-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnZ26ZAfo4c
[00:38:46] <shrdlu-> I want to do that
[00:38:54] <shrdlu-> mach3 seems to be doing it fine
[00:39:05] <shrdlu-> maybe I'll have to buy that
[01:03:36] <shrdlu-> wow, hm, that youtube link has pulled up a good looking raster to gcode prog
[01:03:46] <shrdlu-> even if the program is in polish
[01:14:14] <fenn> if the feedrate affects using Z for the laser, would using a rotary axis instead fix that?
[01:14:44] <fenn> i dont really get why feedrate would make it pause
[01:16:07] <fenn> i mean you're hardly moving at all on Z in the first place, and Z should have ridiculous accel/velocity settings
[01:16:27] <fenn> and you did set [TRAJ] MAX_* to 9999999 right? (like i told you earlier)
[01:17:51] <shrdlu-> everything is maxed out
[01:18:09] <SWPadnos> could you post your hal and ini files on pastebin?
[01:18:55] <shrdlu-> I've had to go into windows
[01:19:17] <SWPadnos> ah
[01:19:21] <fenn> why'd you "have to go into windows"?
[01:19:38] <shrdlu-> so I can try mach3
[01:19:53] <shrdlu-> I've been working with emc for 14 hour days for 3 days and I'm nowhere
[01:20:48] <shrdlu-> all files are exactly how stepconf sets them up for a 3 axis machine
[01:21:02] <shrdlu-> with high values for accel and velocity on the z axis
[01:24:56] <skunkworks> logger_emc: bookmark
[01:24:56] <skunkworks> Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emc/2009-02-12.txt
[01:28:37] <shrdlu-> hm, maybe I'll give it one last go with code generated via this converter
[01:36:26] <skunkworks> I would think to get the effect you want - z would have to be on its own line.
[01:36:37] <skunkworks> (I just jumped in again)
[01:37:07] <SWPadnos> yep, that's true
[01:37:29] <SWPadnos> even using the PWM mode, the laser power would ramp up/down over the course of the whole move
[01:37:41] <skunkworks> otherwise - it will change the power over the whole x movement.. (even though it is short)
[01:37:48] <skunkworks> it will still blend great though
[01:37:52] <skunkworks> I would think
[01:38:04] <SWPadnos> you can also program ___/\___ instead of ____|_____
[01:38:25] <SWPadnos> or _____|----- (sort of :) )
[01:39:08] <shrdlu-> I've tried the z on its own line
[01:39:11] <eric_unterhausen> can you draw a picture of a horse?
[01:39:13] <shrdlu-> I think it was worse
[01:39:27] <skunkworks> are you running g64px.xxxx?
[01:39:28] <SWPadnos> no (by hand or with ASCII art)
[01:39:39] <shrdlu-> yes
[01:39:59] <shrdlu-> maybe I'm not using it right
[01:40:10] <SWPadnos> I'm not sure it's what you want actually
[01:40:41] <SWPadnos> you need the Z move to run, you don't want it to get optimized away by hte naive CAM algorithm
[01:40:45] <SWPadnos> the
[01:41:00] <skunkworks> oh - good point
[01:41:11] <skunkworks> depends on how big the z move is..
[01:41:15] <skunkworks> 0-1?
[01:41:36] <SWPadnos> that's big though, you want small moves so accel/vel limits aren't a problem ...
[01:41:42] <SWPadnos> but not too small
[01:41:45] <SWPadnos> or something :)
[01:42:20] <skunkworks> heh
[01:46:06] <skunkworks> wow - I don't know the correct incatation.. how do you make a certain program open a certain file in ubuntu?
[01:46:30] <SWPadnos> depends on the program I bet
[01:46:35] <skunkworks> I mean - I want to click on a sch file and have it open in eagle.
[01:46:56] <SWPadnos> oh, right-click and you might get some option to "open with another program" or something
[01:47:48] <skunkworks> well - that is I think the other problem.. It isn't in the list and I can't type eagle from the command line. (I have to actually go to the program file)
[01:48:49] <SWPadnos> there's an option to "use a custom command" at the bottom of the window
[01:49:30] <shrdlu-> err, axis wont even load this raster code in decent time
[01:49:51] <SWPadnos> how big is the file?
[01:50:07] <shrdlu-> 6.1 megs ;)
[01:50:12] <SWPadnos> hmm
[01:50:22] <SWPadnos> I've loaded a 20M file in ~30 seconds before
[01:50:27] <SWPadnos> but that was on a fast PC :)
[01:50:40] <shrdlu-> this is taking several minutes
[01:50:56] <SWPadnos> you can press ESC if you don't mind missing out on the preview
[01:51:06] <shrdlu-> ah
[01:51:12] <shrdlu-> thanks
[01:51:21] <SWPadnos> sure
[01:51:52] <shrdlu-> not working
[01:52:12] <SWPadnos> oh hmmm
[01:52:23] <SWPadnos> what isn't working?
[01:52:29] <shrdlu-> esc
[01:52:32] <SWPadnos> oh
[01:53:03] <SWPadnos> what speed is your CPU, and how much memory do you have?
[01:53:22] <shrdlu-> 3ghz P4, 2 gigs of ram
[01:53:35] <SWPadnos> most strange
[01:54:54] <SWPadnos> I don't know what's wrong there. esc definitely should stop the preview
[01:55:16] <shrdlu-> ah, yes, it works. But not until half way through
[01:55:35] <shrdlu-> it's running faster now I've killed off this prog in wine
[01:56:00] <SWPadnos> heh
[02:28:59] <skunkworks> that cannot be good. ;)
[03:18:14] <JymmmEMC> JymmmEMC is now known as MrAsshole
[03:19:09] <MrAsshole> MrAsshole is now known as JymmmEMC
[03:21:15] <JymmmEMC> JymmmEMC is now known as Red70sShow
[03:21:45] <Red70sShow> Red70sShow is now known as JymmmEMC
[03:27:06] <fenn> oh, i guess i should share with you guys too: http://fennetic.net/machines/hexegrity-applet/hexegrity.html
[03:29:30] <fenn> now that i think about it, X would have to stop to let Z move up and down
[03:29:38] <fenn> in the laser raster scenario
[03:29:46] <fenn> you really need synched analog i/o
[05:36:56] <jmkasunich> argh
[05:37:22] <jmkasunich> I just typed in a moderately long g-code program and then realized that I need to rotate the part 90 degrees to fit it on the machine
[05:40:30] <toastydeath> g50?
[05:40:43] <toastydeath> does emc support scaling and rotation?
[05:40:47] <jmkasunich> no
[05:40:51] <toastydeath> oh, well nvm then
[05:41:21] <jmkasunich> it isn't as bad as it might have been - I put the profile in a subroutine and called it several times, so I only had to change it in one place
[05:41:35] <jmkasunich> I also have to tweak entry and exit moves - the part _barely_ fits on the machine
[05:45:38] <toastydeath> nice
[05:45:48] <toastydeath> that's a good feeling
[05:45:52] <toastydeath> "huh, i guess that DOES fit"
[05:46:12] <JymmmEMC> * JymmmEMC hands jmkasunich a machine stretcher
[06:07:46] <tomp> swap x & y cables?
[06:08:02] <tomp> = hardwire rotation
[06:17:18] <jmkasunich> I fixed the program
[06:31:33] <toastydeath> in soviet russia, program fixes YOU
[07:24:30] <tomp> asking if its ok to move the limit switches is a good sign that you should upsize the machine tool one notch ;)
[07:24:50] <toastydeath> THREE HUNDRED NOTCHES
[07:29:30] <Dr_Phreakenstein> arghhh! cannot run emc in simulation mode
[07:30:05] <Dr_Phreakenstein> Starting EMC2...
[07:30:06] <Dr_Phreakenstein> X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
[07:53:26] <fenn> sounds familiar. are you trying to run over an ssh connection and forgot to connect with -X?
[07:55:57] <Dr_Phreakenstein> nope, fixed just now...
[07:56:13] <Dr_Phreakenstein> emerged xorg-server, and it stole my opengl...
[07:56:30] <fenn> ...
[07:56:32] <Dr_Phreakenstein> put gl back to nvidia, and i got it to start fine
[07:57:02] <fenn> how does nvidia work with gentoo? i had some bad experiences with their custom installer
[07:57:26] <fenn> their = nvidia's
[07:57:26] <Dr_Phreakenstein> unstable
[07:57:42] <Dr_Phreakenstein> some versions work ok, others are unusable
[07:58:11] <Dr_Phreakenstein> as far as the gentoo part of it goes, never had a problem
[07:58:53] <Dr_Phreakenstein> besides the afore-mentioned fighting between packages over who wants to be the default opengl implementation
[08:00:49] <Dr_Phreakenstein> higher-performance, but less stable than ATI in my experience, but that is not comparing similar generations, so ymmv
[08:01:16] <Dr_Phreakenstein> anybody try to convert a grizzly g0484?
[08:01:50] <Dr_Phreakenstein> looks like an rf45 clone
[08:02:18] <Dr_Phreakenstein> just curious, because i have one, and plan to do said conversion
[08:07:05] <fenn> hard to find on google for some reason; here's the g0484: http://www.grizzly.com/products/9-x-32-Gear-Head-Mill-Drill-with-Stand/G0484
[08:07:36] <fenn> looks like a good candidate for CNC
[08:22:09] <Dr_Phreakenstein> cool
[08:22:22] <Dr_Phreakenstein> will keep posted of progress
[10:36:52] <Stun2> hello
[10:39:04] <alex_joni> hello
[10:39:22] <alex_joni> Bienvenue
[10:39:39] <Stun2> on peux parler fran├žais?
[10:39:50] <Stun2> Savoir si le chan est anglophone ou pas :-)
[10:42:03] <alex_joni> tu peux parler francais, mais je ne comprend pas rien ;)
[10:42:17] <Dr_Phreakenstein> no comprende
[10:43:00] <alex_joni> definately anglophone
[10:44:12] <Stun2> oki no prob (my english is very bad, but it's a good exercice for me ^^)
[10:44:51] <alex_joni> Stun2: seems good enough ;) better than my french
[10:44:58] <Dr_Phreakenstein> sure
[10:44:58] <Dr_Phreakenstein> anybody have problems opening files?
[10:44:59] <Dr_Phreakenstein> as in emc crashes when opening a file, even clicking on a dir
[10:45:08] <alex_joni> Dr_Phreakenstein: what GUI?
[10:45:17] <Dr_Phreakenstein> axis
[10:45:25] <Dr_Phreakenstein> no others even start up
[10:45:30] <alex_joni> Dr_Phreakenstein: start emc from a terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal)
[10:45:40] <alex_joni> and see what messages get printed in the terminal
[10:45:54] <Stun2> alex_joni: thx, but, I have only english bases :-)
[10:46:01] <Dr_Phreakenstein> have done
[10:46:01] <Dr_Phreakenstein> want output?
[10:46:29] <alex_joni> Dr_Phreakenstein: pastebin if it's more than 2-3 lines
[10:46:40] <Dr_Phreakenstein> k... standby
[10:50:10] <Dr_Phreakenstein> http://pastebin.com/d3dd5fb79
[10:50:26] <Dr_Phreakenstein> included normal and with -d -v
[10:50:39] <Dr_Phreakenstein> btw, thanks for help
[10:50:57] <alex_joni> try to update CVS
[10:51:06] <alex_joni> there was a fix yesterday relaetd to segfaults
[10:51:54] <Dr_Phreakenstein> hmmm
[10:52:03] <Dr_Phreakenstein> updated hours ago
[10:52:14] <Dr_Phreakenstein> again just now, compiling
[10:52:40] <alex_joni> I see you compiled and sudo make install'ed .. right?
[10:52:52] <alex_joni> it's always best to keep your local copy compiled for run-in-place
[10:53:01] <alex_joni> (./configure --enable-run-in-place)
[10:53:14] <alex_joni> else you're overwriting an existing install
[10:53:18] <Dr_Phreakenstein> yes
[10:53:38] <Dr_Phreakenstein> well, existing install is broken
[10:54:04] <Dr_Phreakenstein> what cvs command should i use?
[10:54:24] <alex_joni> cvs up -dP
[10:54:26] <alex_joni> to update
[10:54:30] <Dr_Phreakenstein> using cvs -z5 -d:ext:anon@cvs.linuxcnc.org:/cvs co emc2
[10:54:42] <alex_joni> but before you compile, go to stc and (./configure --enable-run-in-place)
[10:54:46] <alex_joni> then make && sudo make setuid
[10:55:07] <Dr_Phreakenstein> np, exec'ing now
[10:56:12] <Dr_Phreakenstein> cvs -z5 -d:ext:anon@cvs.linuxcnc.org:/cvs up -dP
[11:03:00] <Dr_Phreakenstein> dumb question: how do i exec emc-environment
[11:03:22] <Dr_Phreakenstein> it complains and does not run manually
[11:06:03] <alex_joni> . scripts/emc-environment
[11:08:56] <Dr_Phreakenstein> ahhh ... source it, don't run it
[11:09:17] <Andy7> can any one help on IGBT driver circuit
[11:09:57] <Andy7> i have difficulty time on buying the ic driver
[11:10:34] <alex_joni> Andy7: not sure if tight now, but maybe later (weekend) you get more answers
[11:11:25] <Dr_Phreakenstein> still segfaults on line 637
[11:11:59] <alex_joni> try a different sample config
[11:12:01] <piasdom> g'morniin all
[11:12:15] <alex_joni> Andy7: s/tight/right/
[11:12:56] <Andy7> g'morning
[11:13:24] <Andy7> alex_joni ok :)
[11:14:07] <Andy7> i trying to use PWM on IGBT
[11:17:48] <alex_joni> Andy7: directly from the PC? or using an IGBT driver?
[11:17:57] <Andy7> how fast IGBT could do switching, how low the Voltage it can transmit from Collector to Emmitor
[11:18:13] <alex_joni> Andy7: that's in the datasheet of the IGBT you are using
[11:18:49] <Andy7> IGBT driver, home build one... no specific IGBT Driver, it is hard to find on local store
[11:19:46] <Andy7> might be, but it only contain MAX VOLTage ...(300V-1200V) .. never LOWest Volt
[11:20:12] <Dr_Phreakenstein> sorry, power outage, telco rt lost power and reset
[11:20:37] <Andy7> is 2Volt 500A would be able to? ...imagine Welder
[11:21:55] <Dr_Phreakenstein> 2v, 500A?!!! that would take a lot of copper!
[11:22:39] <Andy7> since the gate is 15V,25V,30V ...im not sure ...and the turn on/off timeing...
[11:22:50] <Dr_Phreakenstein> univpwm and univstep fail at line 340
[11:22:59] <Andy7> yup, u bet
[11:24:08] <Andy7> more amp more heat
[11:25:20] <Andy7> ordinary igbt could handle 1200V 500A u know
[11:25:25] <Dr_Phreakenstein> gets bucket of liquid nitrogen
[11:25:38] <Andy7> :)
[11:25:48] <Andy7> just water
[11:26:39] <Andy7> they alot on the local river
[11:26:53] <Dr_Phreakenstein> true, and cheaper
[11:27:12] <Andy7> and ceramic to isolate
[11:27:33] <Andy7> + - ground of local river
[11:28:24] <Dr_Phreakenstein> :)
[11:28:25] <Andy7> :)
[11:29:39] <Dr_Phreakenstein> any recomended, or particularly "
[11:29:48] <Dr_Phreakenstein> "safe " configs?
[11:30:39] <Andy7> u should try one of these kind of welder... im not yet see forward on microwave welder...microwave= xx GHz ....IGBT only able to do 20KHz
[11:31:30] <Andy7> just turn the igbt on and off, would do it
[11:32:31] <Andy7> we would have best result if u add ferrite core transformer
[11:32:39] <Dr_Phreakenstein> everything still segfaults
[11:33:15] <Dr_Phreakenstein> * crams ferrite into computer as last resort
[11:33:37] <Andy7> :)
[11:33:42] <Dr_Phreakenstein> fans grind and throw chunks
[11:35:43] <Andy7> :)
[11:36:55] <Dr_Phreakenstein> only 5-axis config even starts, but segfaults at line 637 when i open a file
[11:38:45] <Andy7> i must go, internet time limit is over for me, i must plug off, i wish u all luck.
[11:39:04] <Andy7> thnx in advance
[11:51:26] <alex_joni> Dr_Phreakenstein: univpwm is using special hardware
[11:51:33] <alex_joni> you should be testing the sim/* configs
[11:54:16] <fenn> andy7 needs to download some books while he's online next time
[11:54:53] <fenn> or at least some datasheets
[11:55:29] <Dr_Phreakenstein> thanks alex_joni
[11:55:48] <Dr_Phreakenstein> i am using 5-axis, but i have to load from command line...
[11:56:15] <Dr_Phreakenstein> i can reload using file -> recent files, so that will do
[11:56:43] <Dr_Phreakenstein> learning g-m code, so i have to keep reloading until i get a good plot
[11:59:44] <alex_joni> Dr_Phreakenstein: that is strange
[12:00:27] <Dr_Phreakenstein> yeah, no explanation i can guess
[12:00:54] <Dr_Phreakenstein> may be a tk thing, mged from brlcad was doing similar recently
[12:02:35] <alex_joni> try configs/xemc
[12:02:42] <alex_joni> that's not using Tk
[12:02:49] <alex_joni> configs/sim/xemc.ini
[12:06:51] <alex_joni> Dr_Phreakenstein: when you type emc does the config picker come up?
[12:09:44] <Dr_Phreakenstein> usually, but i have been specifying config on command line
[12:22:58] <alex_joni> Dr_Phreakenstein: oh, ok.. so the configpickers works.. (that's also tcl/tk)
[12:23:33] <Dr_Phreakenstein> yes
[12:23:52] <alex_joni> did you try mini and/or tkemc as a GUI?
[12:27:16] <Dr_Phreakenstein> yes
[12:29:31] <alex_joni> same segfaults?
[12:29:47] <alex_joni> try using configs/sim/tkemc.ini and sim/mini.ini
[12:30:02] <alex_joni> the 5axis also has vismach loaded which might be the culprit
[12:30:38] <Dr_Phreakenstein> hmmm
[12:30:48] <Dr_Phreakenstein> will i get a pretty backplot?
[12:32:12] <alex_joni> nope
[12:32:20] <tomp> what was the package that added wifi support to 8.0.4?
[12:32:48] <alex_joni> linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-16-rtai I think
[12:32:59] <tomp> thx alex
[12:33:15] <alex_joni> tomp: look for linux-ubuntu-modules and search for rtai
[12:33:27] <alex_joni> apt-cache search linux-ubuntu-modules | grep rtai
[12:35:18] <tomp> hmm, on a non ubuntu box now ( but it is on the net ) , and the grep returned nothing
[12:36:22] <tomp> i hope i can store it to thumb drive an move to the ubuntu system
[12:36:49] <alex_joni> you need to have the linuxcnc repository added in apt
[12:37:00] <alex_joni> so the apt-cache will probably return nothing
[12:37:04] <alex_joni> let me grab you a link
[12:37:15] <tomp> k, onto the wiki for them, thx
[12:37:49] <alex_joni> http://www.linuxcnc.org/hardy/dists/hardy/base/binary-i386/linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-16-rtai_2.6.24-16.22.linuxcnc.2_i386.deb
[12:38:06] <alex_joni> that's assuming you have a i386 install
[12:39:53] <tomp> um, eeepc and xandros, i think its intel
[12:41:56] <alex_joni> I think you didn't install a 64bit distro
[12:42:06] <tomp> oh, wget was painless thx alex
[12:42:30] <tomp> heh
[12:45:59] <tomp> urf! 'same version already installed', looks like i tried this already. need to do some research.
[13:02:33] <alex_joni> there is also http://www.linuxcnc.org/hardy/dists/hardy/base/binary-i386/linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-16-rtai_2.6.24.12-16.34.linuxcnc.1_i386.deb
[13:12:49] <tomp> uh, dmesg & lspci doesnt even see the controller. ubuntu just doesnt see it 9 and it works fine under that other os
[13:15:32] <tomp> i get lotsa hits saying its an 802.11a+b/g wireless but noone says the chipset
[13:20:56] <tomp> seems to be a LiteOn WN630x PCI Express card inside the lappie
[14:36:05] <BigJohnT> BigJohnT is now known as BJT-Work
[14:37:42] <skunkworks> BJT-Work: how are the utilities doing?
[14:38:34] <BJT-Work> they are still trying to get everything hooked up.
[14:39:13] <BJT-Work> many of the poles they set when the ground was frozen fell over when the ground thawed out because they didn't have time to set
[14:43:45] <skunkworks> yeck
[14:45:05] <BJT-Work> at least where I live it is all rock but down south and east of here it is all sand and mud from the Mississippi
[14:45:45] <BJT-Work> I'd have to guess that 90% have power back
[15:31:34] <tomp> aha. lshw -C network shows that the wireless chip is seen as eth0 and the r8169 river is loaded. isnt it supposwd to be ath0?
[17:02:23] <motioncontrol> good evening.i want implementation the m fuction custom example m119 whith one parameter input.This parameter do write in pid.3.command for orientation the spindle. Is possible ?
[17:18:05] <shrdlu-> back to annoy you all again
[17:23:46] <shrdlu-> that cam.py has a very useful raster fill function, that will output 'raster' gcode
[17:24:08] <shrdlu-> but I still don't like this stopping thing :/
[17:33:10] <motioncontrol> good evening.i want implementation the m fuction custom example m119 whith one parameter input.This parameter do write in pid.3.command for orientation the spindle. Is possible write it?
[17:37:49] <cradek> motioncontrol: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?CustomMcodesToHal
[17:44:49] <motioncontrol> ok thanks cradek.exist one manual for sintax the m code?
[17:50:03] <motioncontrol> the m fuctionc after do write, is necessary compile?
[17:57:58] <alex_joni> motioncontrol: you can write a custom m code as any executable you like
[17:58:05] <alex_joni> even a compiled C file, or a shell script
[18:01:26] <motioncontrol> ok alex, when i write in partprogram m119, emc control in nc_file directory the m119 and actualization the m119 script ?
[18:05:23] <alex_joni> yes
[18:05:36] <alex_joni> if the m119 is a shell script, then you don't need to compile it
[18:05:43] <alex_joni> (there is an example included with emc2)

[18:06:36] <JanVanGilsen> Hi, I got stuck on the pyvcp changes I'm doing and wrote down my toughts on the subject, maybe somebody could help me to find a nice way to solve the issues
[18:06:42] <JanVanGilsen> http://pastebin.com/m6b7c3d9
[18:07:37] <motioncontrol> ok alex . i want write in pid.3.command : i write in m119 : halcmd setp pid.3.commad = in1 , in1 is input variable the position command. is ok for you?
[18:09:02] <alex_joni> setp pid.3.command $P
[18:09:17] <alex_joni> then M119 P10
[18:09:26] <alex_joni> that will cause setp pid.3.command 10
[18:15:38] <motioncontrol> ok thanks alex this fuction i command the spindle in c axis mode
[18:29:40] <motioncontrol> good evening.One quetion.in g33 z-10 k1 code when the z axis stay at -10 the spindle change direction itself or i write after m3 s1000,g33 z-10 k1, m4 s100, g33 z0 k1, etc?
[18:30:44] <cradek> motioncontrol: http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode_main.html#sec:G33,-G33.1:-Spindle-Synchronized
[18:31:26] <cradek> you do not program the spindle reversal, it is part of the cycle
[18:32:51] <motioncontrol> ok thanks cradek i use only g33.1 and spindle reverse itself, i don't use g33 for compenmsate tapping
[18:33:26] <cradek> sorry, I don't understand what you mean
[18:34:50] <motioncontrol> i don't use g33 fuction , i use the g33.1 and fuction ok
[18:35:07] <cradek> right, g33.1 is the tap cycle
[18:36:05] <motioncontrol> excuse cradek the canned cycle fuction in emc? example g84
[18:36:39] <cradek> please try to answer questions using the documentation first: http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode_main.html
[18:37:00] <motioncontrol> ok thanks cradek
[19:05:19] <JanVanGilsen> Somebody who has comments on my pvcp xml toughts?
[21:50:33] <cradek> oilproof pendant? http://west.loadup.com/military/surplus/12649.html
[22:05:32] <SWPadnos> I'm sure it's waterproof, but it may not be oilproof
[22:43:43] <cradek> I like the large flat lid
[22:44:09] <seb_kuzminsky> cradek: way easier to work with than the tall & narrow US-style ammo cans
[22:45:11] <alex_joni> SWPadnos: fill it with water, then it's oilproof
