I just tested the files. They work.
SWPadnos: Be sure to say that in your EVIL voice
SWPadnos: Ok, carry on!
SWPadnos: Hey I need to hit you up sometime on LED controler/driver Basics. No rush
ok. get back to me in June
or later :)
SWPadnos: How about you get back to when when you can?
if I remember, sure
if I haven't by mid-June, remind me
THanks, again guys. Bye
glad you got it working
SWPadnos: I'll email/nag every 6000 seconds.
ONE MILLION! muahahahahaha!
SWPadnos: Hope you have unlimited texting
no, I don't
SWPadnos: Can you block SMS?
I can probably get rid of text messaging entirely
I don't use it
so if you start spamming me, I'll get you back somehow (since I pay for every message) :)
I can send you an AVR-based lighting controller, if you want to run some tests with it
SWPadnos: Ok, take it out of the cost of that SS Enclosure. I figure I have at LEAST $200 credit there =)
SWPadnos: Actually, I do wnat to learn AVR, but a more Dumbass LED 101 is what I need.
ok - mid-June
SWPadnos: Like things to drive a matrix, or multiple mattrixes. Or control strands of LEds, etc that kinda stuff.
June it is =)
mshaver: I prefer Ale over a lager =)
now this is funny on several levels: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119009
first, small $2 item with $6 shipping
second "has UV effect wires and connectors to increase the unearthly glow from your machine"
third, there are 28 reviews for a Y cable
anyone thought about refiting the controls on those import laser cutters with EMC?
tomp is now known as tomp3
is there a way to search thru the irc logs?
google does a decent job
use site:linuxcnc.org terms
if it's in irc logs, it'll turn up
I wonder what the lag time is
I bet not long.
looks like 4/20 right now
ahah! like this, thanks shove this up yer google >>> "www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emc/ trajectory planner" got lotsa hits from the right place, cool
so I just found a cool program: vbindiff
compares binary files in hex, and lets you shift the two files around relative to each other
in glorius ncurses blue
visual basic indifference?
visual binary differences maybe? :)
lets you allign code chunks of diffent files ?
tomp3, yes, you can do that
i'm not getting anywhere inmy search cuz i dont rememeber enuf of the topic to make the search pattern.
sett you jep
see you jepler
erf it was a question for jepler, he said that usually the whole file was parsed or planned in the blink of an eye, and 'it' could be viewed ( a queue or something )
he told me something to try , and i went off to work... lost the thread
the gcode gets interpreted fast - you can see the last-interpreted line in the stat
for instance I think the AXIS splash screen interprets in about one second
sounds like the subject, i'll try 'interpret' thx
so much good stuff goes by in irc - too bad it's hard to find it later.
"interpret" and "queue" are probably good terms
queue makes me think of moby dick. its cue in america dangit
no, cue is different
queue is still "a line"
"cue" is either billiards/pool related, or it's an indication to do something (like an actor getting their cue)
grrr website designers
you put two items in a shopping cart, come back 30 mins later to add another item, and the first two have been forgotten
I can't help it if I'm a slow shopper
I've seen that
mongoloid he was a mongoloid happier than you and me
mongoloid he was a mongolid
and it deteremined what he could see
we are devo
jmkasunich: blame web developers not designers for that
jmkasunich: unless you were logged it
I wonder how you tell if someone is selling rental Oxy/Acetylene tanks?
are you looking for some?
to rent buy, trade, lease? lease to own? filled? empty? new? used? cretified?
I don't care, I just need gas
then hit a local welding supply
they will recertify and fill tanks
if they can, obviously if the tanks fubared they won't
unless the tank is a rental that someone sold (which makes it stolen property)
right, which leads to my question, I wonder how you tell if someone is selling rental tanks
I'd assume there are markings on the tank somewhere
yes, around the top there are all sorts of marks
Again, ask a local welding supply house. If you tell them you are shopping on the craiglist I'm sure thay are more than willing to give you that info.
This is actually kind cool for what it is... http://dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.20383
that is cool, now if they would just have one that uses your neighbor's wireless, it would be perfect
Is anyone looking for any RS-232/USB to RS-485 adapters?
JymmmEMC: maybe, why?
jmkasunich: Was it you that was interested in 20 to 24 pin PC PS adapter?

alex_joni: around ?
I have question about halui
I've connected halui.jog.0.minus to some input but it doesn't work
I've set jog-speed to 1000
alex_joni: nevermind I should check deeper before asking
tomp is now known as tomp3
micges: working now?
cool, what was it?
must be in manual mode to work
was in MDI after g0x0y0
how common are drives that take PWM directly ( no capacitor filtering of PWM to analog )? any users?
hello, in Python/Vismach I can't get reading from Hal_in pins working. Writing to hal_out pins works, any ideas?
narcolepsy central here

i have a question: i have made a block 100x100x50 in varicad (3d cad for linux) with 2 cuttings inside. first is 50 deep, second 70.
if i convert it with dxf2g-code it generates only a code with one cutting deep
emc cuts then only in one deep on z-axis
i this a problem og the dxf2g-code program? or the cad-program, or the emc?
i am new in cnc
the g-code probably only has one cut
it shouldn't be too hard to read
that's waht i mean. Z-axis -1.5 to get to the piece and then -3.0 to cut. but the second cut has to be more
i use the simulation-mode of emc at the moment. my maschine isn't ready. waiting for some parts.
ok, i cut all questions. what software is free to do 3d cad, convert to g-code and use this in emc (all for linux)?
and this is at the beginning http://code.google.com/p/heekscnc/

i have a board called mach 2 3. got it at ebay. it's from china. has someone the same one running with emc2?
d_puppy: they are a separate board that's not related and will not run with emc
d_puppy: it's a completely separate controller
it's for 4 axis and is controlled over LPT
[13:08:57] <d_puppy> http://cgi.ebay.de/4-Achsen-stepper-Schrittmotor-fuer-CNC-Fraese-NEU_W0QQitemZ330327288975QQcmdZViewItemQQptZController?hash=item330327288975&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1229%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50
this one i mean
ah, a motor driver
d_puppy: have you found a link to a manual with the technical specs?
that's what we need to be able to give you good advice.
no chance and the handbook is in chineese
the connections can be seen an the pictures in the handbook. all the rest is testing
ours is a IIIb
is wish i had some land with a shop on it for such stuff
[GlobalNotice] oops! the network for one of our sponsors suddenly disappeared. sorry for the troubles...
[Global Notice] Hi all, as you've probably noticed we're experiencing some connectivity issues with one of our main sponsors, we're trying to route around the problem for now and hopefully it should calm down. Apologies for the inconvenience and have a good day.
is this thing on?
is anyone about?
they just all went square
are you any good with EMc2?
just ask the question
ok, i have EMC2 on a laptop, and it wont run a simulation or any other configuration
it seems to be something to do with rtapi
realtime and laptops dont mix well
ive been told
but hey, i thought id give it a shot
you ought to say what the error is
otherwise we'll just have to guess what's wrong
ok.. ive got the log file
[18:36:32] <hoodoo> http://pastebin.com/m5a9893d6
is that of any help?
hi, if i turn on halui i get, HAL: ERROR: insufficient memory for signal
hoodoo: is this a full dapper install?
done with an alternate install cd
is this emc built from source, or is it the linuxcnc dapper package?
should i build from source?
(I'm surprised that it's 2.2.0 you're getting)
no, rebuilding isn't going to help - but I'm not sure what's wrong.
the problem is the machine has no network, so getting all depends is quite tedious, and for building from source, it will be much harder
what do you mean, 2.2.0 surprised
you should have 2.2.8, not 2.2.0
I guess if you downloaded it manually, maybe you just picked the oldest one.
ya, looks like it
you could also choose to run 2.3.0 now, which is pretty new
should i upgrade to 2.2.8
does that run on dapper
yes either way, you should run the latest bugfix release, 2.2.8 or 2.3.0
[18:43:53] <hoodoo> http://www.linuxcnc.org/emc2/dists/dapper/emc2.2/binary-i386/
that is my source
that's correct, you just picked the oldest one
rob: you have emc from debs or compiled from source ?
cradek: ok, no change..
[18:59:00] <hoodoo> http://pastebin.com/md4de8eb
rob: what are loading to hal ? (mesa, halui, some hal drivers)
mesa 5i20 hm2
sim version load ok
sim configs you mean ?
cradek: you still ther?
hoodoo: your error means rtai_malloc failed, which seems to mean the kernel is out of memory.
hoodoo: maybe you need more ram and/or swap
i have ehem.. 91mb
how much swap do you have, and is it full?
rob: turn off halui and run emc2, then in another terminal type "halcmd status"
yea if i comment halui out loads fine, load it from ini with halui where i get memory errors
machine is not here wit me right now i have to do that tomorow
`free' will tell you
right, running ubuntu and EMC2 startup, only 65% ram is used and about 40% Swap
rob: is this one of the distributed sample configs to which you only added halui, or have you done more than that?
the machine isnt next to me, and specs aren't all known
tool the hm2 servo as a base
then added alot of sigs etc for the 5i20
maybe grab a copy of your entire configuration so one of us with a 5i20 can try to reproduce it.
maybe something is leaking hal memory
also, grab the full output of the emc run so we have the exact error message
like I did above, we can easily find the exact failure in the source then
hoodoo, what do you mean by "running ubuntu and EMC2 startup, only 65% ram is used and about 40% Swap"
specifically, if EMC2 won't run, what do you mean by "EMC2 startup"
buy a scope
they are cheao
wtf, now my parport wont work again /:
got no of the parport drivers loaded, lp, parport_pc, parport, ppdev .. but i get broken pipe when it ry to step ?
wheee.. Eee PC 1008 HA launched next week
good night all
im off now guys
thanks for the help again
here is your laser... get a bigger shop
LawrenceG: And it's only 30 minutes away too
a couple of mobile home axles and you could tow it home
that place has some nice tools.... not as cheap as I have seen, but they are a reseller
LawrenceG: Dude, it's on rails...literally there are Rail Road like rails.
Or maybe that's how they move the steel around
LawrenceG: "Non-Contact Hi-Pressure Cutting Head " hmmmm????
LawrenceG: Man, I don't even have the mains service for that! lol
JymmmEMC, jumper cables to the 3phase in the alley
LawrenceG: Did you order one of these yet? http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.11315
nope.... i would like to keep my remaining eye :}
LawrenceG: Well, hurry up and order one so you can ship it down to me
hmm - might have to buy 2 ;)
JymmmEMC: we could each by 1.5 lasers and give LawrenceG one for the troubles. ;)
skunkworks405: Yes, yes we could
LawrenceG: So, you coming to the US anytime soon? Or know someone that is?
heh - peer pressure. ;)
Well, I know that the FDA allows laser components in the US without permit. It's just fully operational lasers they don't.
That's how you can get 40W lasers from China, becasue the tube isn't connected and requires assembly.
I am surpised they allow dvd burners.... they are in the 150mw range
The beam is self-contained, not "open" I suspect.
invisable laser pointer... see it because thing smoke? ;)
will that company sell to the us?
skunkworks405: I just googles and found it
they are in china
not focused either http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B37GGZjeok
LawrenceG: search youtube for "IR laser from dvd"
