need help with a g540
you might want to explain the problem
I cannot help - write everything you can on what your having trouvble with - others are idling and should reply as the look on the chat
as he said
okay, I tested the machine with mach3 under windoze it works perfect
now I configured it with stepconf used pretty much dthe defaults wich seemed correct
the machine does not respond to jog commands
I think it has a charge pump
did you do a latency test on your computer?
in fact the step motors arent @locked@
enable? charge pump?
yes it doeas have a charge pump
yes i did latency tests
is EMC2 configured to generate the charge pump signal?
there is a good chance your step and direction pins are reversed...... charge pump sounds more like the problem
this option isnt in stepconf right?
I'll go rtfm
You can set the pin in stepconf for the charge pump
just need to know which pin
are you talking about the axis test or emc running?
I'll try to find out from my mach3 configuration
ok, yeah, do check the charge pump
or the g540 documentation maybe?
seems to be pin 16
that you very much!
hehe its even right on (precision wise)
yay free from windoze! at last!
anywone else with a ati rage 128?
it freeze the kernel when axis is launched
try the vesa driver
had to remove acceleration

page needs updating ! http://www.linuxcnc.org/content/blogcategory/15/12/lang,en/
it should have a link to the wiki page http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?EMC_Fest_2009
archivist did u get the parport working?
no, so used free pins for the first port
ahh ok what was the fault?
so do have real 5 axis moves now
parpot 0 not the new card
you have pictures of this five axis move?
will be lookin
is the 5axis on the head or the table?
X and Y axis limitations are really getting in the way now
B has a 90 deg angle plate with A bolted on it
having seen a pic posted to a nice 5axis by hermle I may redesign when I can get materials
90mm travel x and 130mm Y is just not enough
has anyone the cheap stepper driver card running, that can be get by ebay from hong kong? i can't get informations about this card.

anyone living here?
no we died
i moved out last week
that card is probably ok
seems a bit low on the voltage side (only 12V)
worst engrish Ive seen recently
info i have is, that pin 4 is step and pin 5 direction for y, but if i test it, pin 2 is for step and 17 for direction. the doc-files of the card are totaly wrong
it says pin 17 is for relay, but it switch on pin 16
if they cant be bothered to document properly , says little for the quality
is it possible, that the cable is wrong?
archivist: engrish ;)
ich_bins: you can check that easily
alex_joni, you read http://engrishfunny.com/
archivist: once in a while ;)
when i switch it on, stepper for a and z can be turned by hand, stepper for x and y not and the y stepper is getting really hot after a while.
well that's an interesting way to mount a chip that's designed for thru-hole .. http://www.kcheungshop.com/iwannebuy/pics/b_pc_driver_board_05.jpg

I have seen that mounting method used for zip-dip footprints, but never with unrelated traces and vias trying to hide in the gap near the body.
jelper: which motel were you commenting on having working wi-fi?
any big projects like the mazak was this year?

That looks pret-Eee neat.
ello kirk, that gear gcode looks dead right here but as a generator I have not actually cut anything but air
kirk_wallace: Yeah, toss the LiveCd on a flash card and it would be pretty fast too.

archivist: I don't have a rotary axis yet, so I am more interested in the O word usage and gear concepts than actually cutting something. I suppose I am going to have to start thinking about making or getting a rotary axis.
I just got my second
micges, give Trunk a try, it's better than before but not perfect yet
I do tend to use O codes and loops to get what I want
Jymmm: A while back I was scouting out used touch screens on eBay. It seemed that if one is patient, there are some pretty good deals. I just wonder how well a touch screen would work with oily fingers?
garage_seb: I think that API is wrong
<- that one is more likely
garage_seb: I can't
garage_seb: can you describe what was the problem?
kirk_wallace: I dun know... saran wrap maybe?
I wonder if you can get tear off covers like the race car drivers use on their windshields. Seems like they might be sold to motorcyclists too.
Sure, they make em for cleanrooms too
is it possible to issue joint commands in a program ?
not at the moment (without rewriting parts of emc2 I mean)
would be nice if you could
well. maybe you can for some joints
the interpreter has XYZABCUVW
you can use a custom kins to directly map UVW to some joints (0,1,2)
then issue UVW moves to move j0,j1,j2
but I don't know if this wild idea would work, or how well ;)
probably not important
just thinking :)
colin__: the first limitation is the interpreter
ah i see
<- that one is more likely
i was just talking about pci registers with respect to my radeon
i dont see the conversation that was a reply to alex_joni
rektide: a bit earlier
Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emc/2009-05-22.txt
is there a way to make axis load up in fullscreen ?
is there a simple answer ?
im using xfce in xubuntu if that matters

good night all
Anyone familiar with the Single button probe/touchoff documented in the wiki?
the coolant pump on the machine next to me is wonky
sucking air, low on coolant
it's not like, stopping? it's just pumping an enormous amount of coolant, then an average amount
the machine is topped up, one of the lines got clogged earlier so maybe this is related
could be if a lump is blocking flow
it was kinda funny the first time it clogged, i was like, why is the turret just dribbling coolant
then i turned on the chip wash sprayers, and got coated in high volume coolant
guess i won't be doing that again
I get pump problems here as well
i managed to unclog the line by pointing the airhose into the offending line
and it worked a little better than expected, again coating me in coolant
I should thank the guy that bid 99 cents instead of my buy it now of $35, I'm at $31 with days to go
I'm starting to feel guilty about the price alread
arg i should have barfed this job
...bar fed, not barfed.
225 small bushings
deadly boring is qty work
standing at a capstan making hundreds of parts
this machine is pretty dimensionally stable under boring, i have to hold a -.0005/+0 bore
and it seems to be holding it fairly accurately
of course in-process gauging would be nice, as would a 2 spindle lathe with live tools
