Jepler: Thanks for the answer on the .bit files. I am trying to understand how the FPGA is programmed so I can at least be knowledgeable enough to add SPI for the 7i64 board from a 7i43 any I/O board.
I have the ISE webpack 10, and have gone through a couple of the training exercises.
Hal question: In the m5i20_io.hal file there are some lines like "addf m5i20.0.misc-update servo-thread 1" What is the "1" or in some cases "-1" for?
huh, I was going to point you to the halcmd docs, but they DON'T say what that does
hmmm. I could swear that used to be in the HAL tutorial
I think that was an old way that let you addf out of order. I never understood it and I think it has been removed or just discouraged since then.
That is why i asked
it's still supported
using a positive number puts the function at that spot in the thread order
can you say how it works and/or add documentation?
using a negative number puts the function that far from the end
I can't add docs at the moment, for I have no lyx
I bet halcmd is a handwritten manpage
oh, groff. ick
or nroff or buggeroff or whatever it is
sigh. only 14 hours until my PC migration is done ...
that isn't in the halcmd manpage?
1 means "make this the first function in the thread"
I could swear it was somewhere, but I don't even see it in the HAL tutorial any more
-1 means "make this the last function in the thread", and is the default
N means "make this the Nth function in the thread, and -N means make this the Nth from the end of the thread
in a HAL file it is probably a lot simpler to just add stuff in the desired order
it's when you have multiple files that you might need the numbering option
but if you find yourself manually adding a component during a debugging or testing session, it is handy to be able to add it exactly where you want it
sounds like another of the reasons multiple hal files are a pain (and a workaround for it)
I think multiple HAL files might be required
Another hal q: The "older" hal_m5i20 has a pin to reset the watchdog but the newer hostmot2 just has a function. Do I use motion.watchdog-reset-out in some way to call the pet watchdog function or do I just addf hm2_5i20.pet.watchdog?
unless you can wait until after the GUI loads to do all HAL/RT initialization
yes, just addf pet
SWPadnos: that's a good point
though loading the (or a) GUI first might have other user-centric advantages, like giving errors in GUI-ized form, or letting you do certain setup functions (like PID tuning) within the GUI, which can start and stop RT at will
(not that PID needs that, but you get the idea)
I think it might be time for bed. night all
yet another question: if I issue the command: "loadusr halmeter" I get a window that lets me select the signal I want but if i just use: "loadusr halmeter sig [some signal name]" then the meter just displays --- what is wrong?
hm, are you sure the signal exists?
works for me
I knew you were going to ask that. I think so.
Oh you are right! my bad. I need to use pin not sig!
cradek and others: thanks for the help. By for today.
i'm beat, yard work all day for the lose
tomp is now known as tom3p
SWPadnos: I notice that you said bed tonight in stead of sleep =)
the ddt component calculates rate using 'period' / nS. where does period come from? its not defined in the comp.
good morning.i Have one maschine with 2 spindle.The first vertical at axis x, the second orizzontal at axis x.For correct work and tool compensation i change only the plane g17 and g18 or there is another future?
tomp is now known as tom3p
OSADL: OSADL - Open Source Automation Development Lab eG http://www.osadl.org/

Looks more related to Real Time Linux more than anyting else.

hey Jymmm, got any ideas on how to get a W2k guest to work when it doesn't know how to access the boot device?
SWPadnos: a guest, so a w2k VM?
Do you get a BSOD?
the import finally completed some time this morning
then t automatically reboots
nope, I get to do it manually
ok, hang on a sec...
I think the normal fix would be to replace the IDE drivers with generic ones
which I didn't do before the import, of course
I guess I could boot from the 2k CD and repair or something
Nah, it doesn't work
See the bottom of page for one option... http://communities.vmware.com/thread/23764
I'm trying to start up in debugging mode - we'll see how far it
not very far
No debug mode won't work either
so I see :)
There is an alternative method too... hang on
hmmm. player says that the disk is IDE already. I'll look at the vmx
yep, it's IDE in the vmx file
Did you have like two hdd's previously?
or maybe multiple partitions?
single 120GB disk, single partition
ok, hang on.... need to acess another system
hmm. I wonder if I should mess with the geometry settings in the .vmdk file
hmmm. I wonder if I can get to that file on the virtual disk drive
it's split into 2G chunks
(which probably isn't necessary on ext3, but converter didn't know that)
you CAN boot a LIVECD from that partition and then just edit from there.
But I find that you have to edit the config file for the VM for a longer timeout
does anyone have a good source for 50 pin screw breakouts for mesa stuff?
I just cant hit the button fast enough
oh, interesting idea
SWPadnos: Hang on, I'll get the setting for you.
cradek: ebay, $19 each
lemme find the seller
that sounds great, thanks
SWPadnos: BOOT DELAY http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-1201
SWPadnos: I set mine to 10 seconds
SWPadnos: Once you changed that setting, you can get/use http://sysresccd.org/
and boot from that. It'll let you mount the NTFS partiton for read/write and then you an edit the BOOT.INI file as needed.
yep, great idea. thanks
SWPadnos: Hey, is it true that you HAVE to use a resistor when powering an LED(s) directly?
SWPadnos: Even when the voltage matches?
not strictly true, but a very good idea
Ok if two leds are in series, each being 3.2VDC (6.4) and I use a 5V PS
would/should I still use a resistor?
heh, it looks like the guy raised his price a little: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270225273470
they used to be $25, then down to $20, now $21.24
[13:53:45] <Jymmm> http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz
I think those are the right ones, you may want to check the manufacturer spec page he links
cradek: Mesa has the 7i34 that has some protection for the fpga.
SWPadnos: That LED claculator still uses at minimum 1ohm resisor even if the voltage is ead on is kinda why I asked.
you would need a very very good voltage regulator to not need a resistor
a few millivolts higher than spec, and the current through the LED could be 100x as great
SWPadnos: Ok, but not needed if using asilcon driver?
LED Driver chip I mean
in practice, there will be resistance in the wires, and the supply itself would tend to dropp under too high a load, both of which will limit current
if you're using a constant-current LED driver, then you don't need resistors
you would have one resistor or reference input to the chip, and the IC will limit the current based on that
SWPadnos: Can AVR's drive a matrix of LED's directly?
not with current limiting
(well, they'll be limited to the 20-25 mA port drive strength of the chip)
cradeck, I mean the 7i42, and the 7i42T IO protector $35
SWPadnos: Heh, I found some 3W LED's drivers - cheap too, under $2
SWPadnos: But, I'm going to try and drive a matrix of 100mA LEDs
I figure about 32 or 64
transistors and resistors then
an 8x8 matrix or something like that?
or maybe 7x5 for 35 LEDs
SWPadnos: That's the other thing I don't get... like LED flashlights have a driver chip in them.
SWPadnos: No, these are for pure lighting application.
ones with a single battery, certainly
these 100mA LED I want to try and replace the floresent ligt in the garage
do you need to address them individually, or just turn them all on at the same time?
I calced out that I need 32 of them
on/off and bonus of dim
oh, in that case you don't need an array
err, you need an array, not a matrix
what voltage are the LEDs, and what DC voltage do you expect to use for the supply?
I have a 12VDC battery backed PS aready. the voltage is 3.2 or 3.4v iirc
you'll only get 3 LEDs per "string" then
you can probably use a single transistor to drive all the LEDs
hook that transistor to a PWM output on the AVR, and you'll get your dimming output
dimming wil reduce power draw, correct?
but at some point you may see flicker
The Ps is the kind used for fire alarm panels, good for up to 6A draw, and has a 10Ah battery
10 ro 12AH
SWPadnos: Yeah, will toss the "frickle" into the emergency seizure mode =)
SWPadnos: the gf got me a Streamlight LEd flashlight that has the blink mode.... gawd that thing is annoying
the LED driver boards I made have 16 channels, each of which is just a single SMT transistor drive
what amperage per ch?
they can drive several amps each, so you can parallel 20-40 series strings of LEDs per transistor
eeeesh, that much?!
in your setup, you'll have 3 LEDs plus a resistor per string
we drove 1000 or more LEDs for some effects
what if i do a series/parallel setup?
I'm really tring to avoid the ecess power loss as I wnat to connect upa solar panel too
yes, that's what I'm talking about
like the calculator you linked shows
Sure, but it ALWAYS shows a resistor, which is just lost power
you need it
Well, if I can avoid the raw power loss by using a driver I'd rather do that.
that's why I was asking about the LEd drivers in flashlights
there will still be some loss
you can only do series with current-limiting drivers
In mW I can handle
but raw loss in watts r amps I can't
so unless the driver has multiple outputs, you need a separate driver per string of LEDs
which means 12 or more of them for your application
(or 11 if you use only 33 LEDs)
in that calculator fill in these values: 12, 3.2,100,32,schematic
resistors disapaute 3.2 Amps
that's like 30%
at the bottom
use 33 instead
# together, all resistors dissipate 3260 mW
right - you said amps, it's actually watts
Still, 3Watts is almost 30%
if you had 3.4V diodes, the dissipation would be lower
that's WAY TOO MUCH, total should be < 500mW
are these LEDs actually meant to run at 100mA continuously?
then get a lower voltage supply
is the 3.2/3.4V rating at 100mA?
110,000 lumen @ 140 Degress
a 10V supply would be better then, if they're 3.2V LEDs
hang on, I'll get spec sheet
switchmode supply to convert 12 to 10
Jymmm, For a product development class We design and made some LED flashlights. I used an LTC-3490 LED driver to drive a 1 watt Bright White LED.
IT worked very well. We drove it with 4 AA batteries for about 40 hours with no change in light output.
geo01005: Cool, but I'll be drawing a tad more than 350mA =)
Sorry I missed what you are making.
archivist: I *might* be able to adj the output on this Ps a tad.
gepoh it's all good, I want to play with those drivers too, just in a different project
These are great high output LEDs http://ledsupply.com/luxeonIII.php
Jymmm: note that the LED voltage can vary somewhat
I'm trying to see if I can replace the 2x40Watt 4 foot florescent shoplight with LED's instead is all
SWPadnos: Yeah, I saw that.
that's a problem when you get to very low resistor values, since a small variation in voltage will make large changes in current
[14:23:43] <geo01005> http://ledsupply.com/everledtr.php
geo01005: Cool, but I aint paying $300 =)
[14:25:08] <SWPadnos> http://c-leds.com/shop/product_info.php?products_id=78&osCsid=7c695b7aa63f9f6204e6d79e1c8264c8
Just saying :)
SWPadnos: I saw that, but again, I'm trying to avoid the extra power loss as I want to use solar panels
I think you can't avoid the power loss
unless you make a constant-current switching supply
How many Lumens output do you want?
which still won't work, since you need to parallel multiple chains of LEDs, and that fubars constant current supplies
oh, you could make a single 100V or so supply, and current limit that to 100mA

what am I missing if I think newegg doesn't sell ethernet hubs??
are you searching in the right category?
oh, and are you actually talking about hubs instead of switches?
yes I need an actual hub
that could be difficult
(but, I don't think they have either)
ethernet, as in 10 mbit only>
people still use hubs?
vs. fast ethernet
switches are as cheap now
it should be 10/100
they introduce delays and separate collision domains
10/100 can't be a hub, unless it's a "dual-speed" thingie
auto 10/100 and reverse/normal
I guess I need to dig in junkpiles
it acts like a 10 mbit hub and a 100 mbit hub, connected via a 2-port switch
[14:57:15] <SWPadnos> http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=26&name=Hubs
oops, those are all USB, aren't they
there must be some confusion about whether you need a hub or a switch (I know I'm confused)
I prefer switches because the delay from collisions can be larger and a switch can deal with more paths at the same time
I need to be able to snoop all the traffic on a small subnet by putting one machine in promiscuous mode
I'm fairly (?) sure this is possible on a 10/100 hub, but I might be wrong.
in reality I bet these machines are all 100
yeah, I'm not sure that's possible
I thought every little cheapie four port hub on every junkpile was 10/100
I have some junkpile 100-only hubs here, they might still work, maybe I'll take one and try it
(but wtf, newegg?)
all my recent cheapies are switches
hubs have gone out of style
a fancy smart/managed switch could do it though
went out with 10 meg
or maybe when 100 was taking over
since you can't use hubs in a combined network
my oldest switch has a led colour change for speed
circa 2002 iirc
now that you say it, I remember that when I had all hubs, the 10s and the 100s were separate nets
gotta be - different signaling
SWPadnos: found a device that says EZ-Hub 10/100
so I'm still puzzled
it's this device http://www.superwarehouse.com/SMC_EZ_Hub_10_100_5-Port/SMC-EZ5805DS/p/4504
maybe they really are two hubs, like you said
we did that to look at internet trafic - hooked a hub betweeen the router and the modem. Then used eutherial(s) to look at what was going on with a extra computer hooked to the hub.
yeah that's a lot like what I want to do
doesn't seem too long ago that I bought one..
the cable company doesn't give us lowly users the password to the routers, so there's no way for me to see all the traffic I'm putting on the line at once
manual says hub as well Buffered store-and-forward switching between 10 and 100 Mbps segments
SMC EZ Hub 10/100 5-Port Features: ... Automatic address learning with 1,700 entry MAC address table
exactly and last page has switching method
somewhat unsure of the sales speak

skunkworks_: thanks, but I actually want 100
I bet there was not much overlap between hub-only and 100Mbit
the device I have here (dead) says 1996
no - but I do remember having one.
I also remember there being limits - like hub to switch cabling had to be less than 5ft or something odd like that.

EbiDK is now known as EbiDK|AWAY
I just got my servos from http://skycraftsurplus.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1877.
They have a HEDS5500 encoder, which is 500CPR without index
jepler: how do they look/feel?
oh, and the shaft does have a flat
they're reasonably heavy
one encoder looks like it may be damaged
(I bought 4 motors so I'm not screwed yet if one is bad)
have you emailed the company? (going to worry about it?)
I'll check to see if the encoder works right or not
then I have to figure out all the wiring, which as you know I hate and am terrible at
I am excited for you :)
you can drive down and work on it if it sounds fun
jepler: you hate wiring?
jepler, just use one colour wire, you then cannot use the incorrect wire, its less confusing
archivist: hey, you do that too?
archivist: Becasue, I actually do use a single color wire.
I love wiring stuff up
sure look in the background pics of my cnc for proof
archivist: But is that by choice or being a cheap bastard?
Cheap bastard by choice... gotit!
a bunch of us wired our boat that way
Not ALL a single color, just most of it I hope
If you're wiring a boat, you'l be buyin spools
it was a 14ft raft
still all wires were red
Oh, that's bad....
at least white
noooooo, it cant be wrong
I use all wht for that stuff, but I still use BLK/RED/GRN for the primary stuff
how much wiring are we talking?
couple of lights?
lower right. proof the red is rite http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJCPD/PD/2009/2009_05_27_cnc/IMG_0244.JPG
oh that's just bad.... not even in any looms or bundles
Remnd me never to let you near my panels =)
they are intended to be shortened and boxed later
Bullshit... it'll never happen.
It never does =)
$100 USD via PP says otherwise
had to lift the vfd off the bench and screw it to the col as a loose wire poked in and blew a fuse
see, you already have junk laying on top the wires as it is... that makes it perm
all gets churned often as there is little space to work
Is that an LED gooseneck light? If so, does it work good?
See, you started off well with the split loom tubing, then fubared when it ame to the 4th axis as the wires are just dangling there.
lighting is a pain
and I really intend better wiring as and when
Yeah, I understand.
we all do =)
It took me months to get the 120VAC wired in on the machine properly.
I had to figure out a way to connect to the spindle (router) with the ability to remove it and use it as a hand router if I wanted to.
sug and plocket not hard
It has a ft cord, I ended up using a piece of 2" PVC pipe tie wrapped to the machine to ake up the excess length, and then canabilized a 25" extension cord to run in the energy chain
It works out well enough
heh been tidied for the pic /me does not believe
you mean photoshoped?
[19:27:15] <Jymmm> http://farm1.static.flickr.com/166/424362252_1bd7946026_b.jpg

No split loom tubing
within energy chain on the back and under the table

dry fit that is
This is the Y Axis energy chan on the back http://farm1.static.flickr.com/179/389857546_ee896d3abe_b.jpg
archivist: better view of it http://farm1.static.flickr.com/125/389857545_d4e09a4c12_b.jpg
I have seen fails in the chain stuff
Well, better than just dangling wires
I had a hook and bungy cords before
well actually extra large rubber bands =)
In hind sight... when I saw this (when it was first shipped to me) I should have known better and just asked for a refund at the time... http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1224/1107057335_b7cca3c65c_o.jpg
flat is tapered as well on the shaft
But I was so anxious to finally get a machine.... *sigh*
flat is grinded
not faced as it should be
I'd love to get my machin going properly, But it's gonna take at minimum a mill and persons that can figure out what the hell is wrong with it and have to fix it
Neither of which are me.
except the mill, more or less
SWPadnos: Yeah, but that was somewhat stressful. a mill on hand is more like it.
yeah, I'm sure that would work better
debugging sure teaches you though, keep at it
archivist, there's some mechanical problem that isn't apparent when you take it apart
archivist: SWPadnos spent like a week or so with me and we tried, it's not that straight forward of a problem(s)
the ballscrew works very nicely (inspected by Thompson), the rails seem fine, the bed seems flat ad parallel ...
I would be measuring to reasonably fine limts to find the error/s
we were measuring to 0.001" (best on hand), on a large (but likely uncalibrated) surface plate
twist of the carriage in motion is what I expect
48" x 48"
plausible, but the error only surfaced on one stretch of travel, and then in only one direction
the carriages are too close together in relation to the carriage width
one thing I didn't think to check for was whether the screw is parallel to the slides
any off center load or thrust will increas friction greatly
SWPadnos: I did
in the horizontal plane that is - I did check the vertical
SWPadnos: though, I still suspect the underarriage ballnut mount
I think material saving and carriage spacing is a cause (over square)
archivist: define"carriage spacing"
two ballscrews with toothed belt to maintain parallel gantry
gantry left has two carriages on the rail, very close to each other compared to the pair at the other end
ugh -- usdigital.com wants me to call to order, or else I can print a PDF and then fax it to them
the binding occurs with no load
so gantry left and lead/lag gantry right
jepler: wiw, they only want me to fax them
any light twist will squeeze frame and increase load
anonimasu: I haven't actually called the 1-800 number, but the item page asys "for your convenience(hah!), use the above part number to order via phone 800.xxx.xxxx"
archivist: But it only occure in one direction, and only at a cetan pont
SWPadnos, I expect binding for over square
I don't understand what you mean
jepler: encoder was bad? or are you getting encoders with index?
ok /me needs a pic
skunkworks_: they have nice encoder cables
SWPadnos: did the plates you made at the fest work?
jepler: oh yah. good call
skunkworks_, geex - I just got home! ;)
SWPadnos: as far as we know, you now have no excuse for not having a running cnc
but I did check when I got back from Wichita - the motor holes line up but the existing plate may not be a NEMA34
the holes for the small side didn't line up
if it is any consolation - my h-bridge is still in the tote
I should check that again, now that it's daylight
SWPadnos, its the leverage from gantry right to left counteracted by the short lever carriage to carriage on a gantry side
best way I can put it without a pic to hand
archivist: But, the problem only happens in one direction (right to left)and only is a certain spot along the travel.
If you go LEFT-to-right, no problem.
luck, add the right force it the right place and you will provoke the effect
I'd like to see what happens if you put the end bearings (which are crap) on floating mounts
no, not really
it will move under load over about half of the work area
SWPadnos: We did make the one end floating
it will move under load in one direction anywhere
it will bind in one area, in one direction, under load or not
Jymmm, I mean floating radially, not along the screw axis
also, I'm not sure that the mounts we made really do give one floating end. I think they do, but I don't remember enough about the design to know for sure
I also see a climb effect due to rotation of the ballscrew
archivist: The Y Axis is fine, I can do 120 IPM no problem, it's the X axis
[20:08:46] <Jymmm> http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1322/863197028_186a285427_b.jpg
I know which axis
deadly frustrating for me as the day job of clocks mean I have to find reasons why things bind and stop :)
Good evening.one questione please.i run the emc, and after i write in terminal in bin directory the emc : ./halcmd source /home/francesco/Scrivania/emc2-2.3.0/configs/sim/pyvcp_demo.hal. But have one error : execv(pyvcp) . Please help me. thanks.
halcmd can't find the pyvcp executable
either there's a path problem, or pyvcp wasn't compiled for some reason
you probably forgot to . scripts/emc-environment
you shouldn't need to run ./halcmd, rather use halcmd (and make sure the PATH is right)
I mentioned that yesterday
i run emc in scripts directory ./emc
motioncontrol: that's not ok
that also should not be necessary
use ". scripts/emc-environment" first
then use "emc" for running emc2
and "halcmd" for HAL commands
ok i prove
the ". scripts/emc-environment" is the important part, as described in the manual
ok i start emc with first emc-environment, but have the error for halcmd.what is the command for start a .hal file?
i use halcmcd source ...../pyvcp.hal
halcmd -kf file.hal
this command i write in terminal , in bin directory of emc?
after the emc-environment it doesn't matter in what dir you are
if i write: ~/Scrivania/emc2-2.3.0/bin$ halcmd -kf pyvcp.hal , i have command not found
if you use 2 shells then you must do ". scripts/emc-environment" in each shell
ok the error change.have a: Could not open command file 'pyvcp.hal'
i thing path?
ok i start : halcmd -kf /home/francesco/Scrivania/emc2-2.3.0/configs/sim/pyvcp.hal , have error :IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'prova.xml'. the prova.xml stay in /configs/sim directory. because
it's easiest if you run halcmd from within the config directort
ok the thanks Swpadnos and alex the problem is ok.i run the command in sim directory
excuse . for another question.i have one maschine with 2 spindle.first spindle is perpendicolar at axis x , the second spindle is orizzontal at x axis. For tool lengh compensation i change only the plane g17 or g18 when maschine fuction with the first spindle or the second spindle or there is another futhure?
if you use a lathe style tool table, you can have tool length offsets in both X and Z
you should use tool orientation 9 for a milling type tool
i can use for mill a lathe tool table?
i don't known this possible
the another solution possible can use 2 configuration ?
i'm trying to add in a parameter for the pwmgen's frequency, but i cant find much in the manual in the way of a value to put there. it says something about 2e6 being 2MHz, but i cant get it to work
like this setp hm2_[HOSTMOT2](BOARD).0.pwmgen.pwm_frequency 40000
? assuming that is 40khz
see i tried it like that, and got an error
i guess i can try it again
paste the exact error
sure, give me a sec, i'm on a different pc
no internet on that one
cnc with no intarwebs, whats the world coming too
lol i am new to linux, havent figured out the networking yet
plug in cable
step 2: use the network
step 3, ip conflict
on mine, yes
it boots 2 of my windows pc's off the network
unless you have a very limited router, or you did something by hand (that you shouldn't have done), that doesn't make any sense
since it's configured to get an address via DHCP by default
you wouldn't happen to have a Motorola DSL modem, would you?
hm2-stepper.hal:176: parameter or pin 'hm2_5i20.0.pwmgen.00.pdm_frequency' not found
i'm sure i did something wrong, i dont blame linux at all
it's a belkin
are you on 8.04? it's possible that we can help you get it working if you like
ok. I just had an experience with some Motorola that only served up one IP address
connect multiple devices via a switch, and you get problems
SWPadnos, what not have fixed IP's ? I run web servers etc on mine
by default, Ubuntu uses DHCP for client configuration
of course, you can do fixed IP
I had a fun time with the network for the MTV thing
12 computers on the camera truss, on their own network
it was in roaming mode
second network port on the master computer, which connected to my laptop, several macs, and anything else necessary
forgetting which IP you put where is the fun part
i changed it to dhcp
and a third network for one of hte macs to upload data to the MTV shared drive
they had a fourth network there, so they could pull from the shared storage and stick it on the live website
lots of fun :)
even the cnc box has a full web set on it here
did u see the error?
is that really supposed to be "pdm_frequency"?
well i have it set as output_type 3, which i thought was pdm
ah, there's no ".00." in there
the frequency is common to all of them
they use the same clock
do i take the 00 out of all my parameters?
but it looks like the frequency is common
you can see the actual names by running halcmd and looking at what's there, once EMC is loaded
(assuming you haven't screwed up the hal files too badly yet :) )
haha i dont think i did.. i dont change anything that i wont be able to undo
dinnertime. check the names with hal
ok, thanks for the help!
and remember, tab is your friend
in what way?
i know the autocomplete thing, but it does more?
can i startup the emc in g17 plan or g18 plan which ?
Danimal: hit tab twice and it will show you all possible completions
motioncontrol: no, put appropriate modal codes at the start of all part programs.
ok jepler , every part program start with g17 or g18 . Is ok ?
example g17 g90 g0 x0 y0
or g18 g90 g0 x0 y0
when i change plane the emc change the tool lengh compensation at z for g17 at y for g18 is ok ?
are you running both spindles at the same time
no i don't know the geometry principe the cnc maschine
the question because i have maschine with 2 spindle, one perpendicular x axis and another orizzontal at x axis
and i thing for fuction with emc the first spindle and the second spindle i change only the plane.i want only a confirm

motioncontrol: tool length compensation is not changed by the g17/g18/g19 plane
there's currently no provision for tool length compensation along Y. There is for X, Z, and W
(I think; W may only be in a branch, not in 2.3.x)
Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emc/2009-06-03.txt
it's irssi's weirdass default behavior
how do you measure the tool length (automatically)?
