the build instructions for the new git tree (README) needs to say to run autogen.sh before "./configure"
and to exec "make install-menus" before "sudo make setuid"
trashing the dir and re-gitting everything didit get me gladevcp yet. emc2/aqxis is find but the wiki example gets $ gladevcp gladevcp-test.ui <CRLF> RTAPI: ERROR: version mismatch 0 vs 1
how do you get gladevcp to run? i've tried the wiki page instructions 3 times now, deleting the entire 'git' tree each time. heres the logs http://pastebin.com/fKZ5hKGn
YAY!!! Got my MBP back from Apple!!!
does EMC support G14/G15 for helical interpolation? Something like this: http://www.cncplayer.com/main/coil.html
elmo40: you can do helical interpolation (using G2/G3 and a Z feed) for the XY plane
you can do the same in any plane, but not at arbitrary angles
like the link describes it. starting dia and ending dia.
g2/3 is fixed, unless I write some sort of loop and alter the x/y/r values according to the diameter at the given z
good morning, europe :)
elmo40: then no, emc2 can't do it
alex_joni: then EMC2 hasn't tried hard enough damnit!
Jymmm: as usual: patches happily accepted
most cam packages spew G1's anyway so I'll wager its a low priority ;-P
though G15 would make for a nice way to mill holes in things in MDI mode ;->

Hello.... Is there any way to get value of tool offset in gcode?
..some complete list of EMC variables?
psha funny thing! http://imagebin.ca/view/m9RD2aw.html
Pen should be BLUE and screwdriver has RED cap.
what's your cam output format?
same in camview... I don't know.. in camview is says to be RGB
it seem that it's really bgr but reports rgb
to be honest i don't want to invest too much work into input_v4l driver :)
colorspace conversion? I just got BW image..
you won't be able to convert colorspace :)
can be here a variat of RGB->BGR and other's
there are conversions but what is needed is 'override' reported colorspace
well it's usable as is but looks funny with something colored. (I didn't realize that is wrong when I have just iron and aluminum under the cam.
for colors where b and r components are close you won't spot diff :)
Butt today I just paint blue spot to calibrate cam offset and under the cam the spot is of very wrong color. (I was thinking I goes to blind :D )
light source effects rendition too
archivist: it seem there is rgb/bgr mismatch
paint everything gray
For sure is not of light...
Green is near good. So just Red and Blue was switched.
v4l has no ability to report colorspace...
it was added only in v4l2
so here driver is just guessing that it's rgb
Can be forced?
there is some reports...
in gqview colors are fine?
You mean gqcam... Yes there are fine
and vivi colors are fine too?
Bonn1: try only input and opengl plugins
maybe crosshair sets incorrect logic op for gl
no.. still wrong
that's bad :)
vivi has YUV
and how to know what color's are right one?
vivi + convert to rgb8
that's good point :0
[10:27:06] <Bonn1> http://imagebin.ca/view/ZPtdvsAW.html
BGRA and RGB has same image. Grayscale work. (colorspace conversion!)
Hi psha :0)
psha: How is the weather over there. We have floods in many inland areas of the country.
it's winter at last :)
What is the temp ?
A bit warmer :-)
any one using emc2 image to gcode for lithophine?
Have you had anything to do with the Mesa 5i20 ?
Guest646, I don't know of anyone doing that, but it probably works if you hit the "invert image" checkbox
i did, I just use it to mill a 100mmx100mm corian
Howard: no, no hw at all
psha Please take a look at www.need4reading.com you maybe interested in assisting me on this project.
hm, too difficul for me :D
psha : Are you interested in C programming ?
Howard: another side project will kill me :)
psha: We can't have that happen to you mate. Just of interest when is your little girl 2 ? My Grand son is this month 0n th 12th.
psha do you attend to spend some time for RGB BGR problem?
a bit later... after i finish some RE on strange pyc module :)
just to know.
it's ussable anyway.
Ok thanks for that. I will catch you next time as it is 11:40 pm and I amm heading off for a ZZZZZZZZ SeeYa, H...,

Has someone code for 3 point circle center?
... have ...
Bonny: it's trivial
find center for two lines, calc orthogonal lines and intercect them
I know how I can draw that...
but want to do to machine do that.
orthogonal line to (x, y) is (-y, x)
intercection is a bot harder
Need to find center of something like http://imagebin.ca/view/2NDqM3q.html
- so 4 point (already done) is out of question
btw can be sliders moved more to the left (to have space for extra button for centering?)
hope i'll find how to fix 'control' expaner size :)
but not from here - it's not possible to run glade on 1024x600 screen :)
or is it plausible to stack extra buttons left (or right) from image as there are 'free' space
(for now I use MDI to call subs)
did you know if some variables store the time?
ie to not use stored coordinates if they are to old.
you'd better do it in python
hmm someone know how to check if global named parameter is defined?
ie is #<_ThatParameter> declared?!

is there a 64-bit RTAI kernel that will work with EMC? (or other way around...)
is one in emc repo?
psha. All working http://imagebin.ca/view/kU18YKz.html
looks great Bonn1
I have twigling as 3 point circle center is hard to do.
It's work but need some finishing touches
psha: is there one in the repo?
i don't know :) but you may check :)
it seem not
take i386 one and run make-kpkg on it
there is! only for hardy heron, though
none for lucid
oh, sorry, only emc in 64-bit
[18:06:25] <elmo40> http://www.linuxcnc.org/emc2/dists/hardy/emc2.4/binary-amd64/
not sure about the kernel.
wait, upon further investigation: http://www.linuxcnc.org/emc2/dists/hardy/base/binary-amd64/
64-bit rtai modules, headers, IMAGE! :) Will have to give that a try.
I wonder if I could compile HeeksCNC in 64-bit...
now then, I would have to install Hardy-64bit then add this repo, correct? the install script doesn't distinguish between 32 or 64-bit.
i don't know what's install script doing
I think if you install hardy x64, it will get the x64 version automagically
I wonder how hard it would be to convert an MT3 boring head to BT30?
[18:50:03] <cradek> http://toolinghouse.com/07010.aspx
at most, it would take 5 seconds and $77
Eew! Not with an adapter, horrid things!
who cares with a boring head - concentricity doesn't matter
just hammer the thing in there and be done with it
Height above the table is my real objection.
doesn't look like it would add more than an inch
if it's not hard, you could cut off the MT and make a male thread out of it?
I am saddened to find that my new, proper, mill has less height above the table than the existing nasty chinese one.
Aye, I was wondering about doing pretty much that, though it probably is hard.
it might not be... possibly just the tang (if it has one?)
It's a drawbolt style one.
does it file?
It's an eBay auction, I probably won't even win it
oh you haven't bought it yet? yay
then you can buy the right one instead :-)
I'm looking for someone's existing nasty chinese one
they don't seem to exist around here, used anyway.
I am looking at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/3-Morse-Taper-MST-MU-3-Boring-Facing-Head-3-MT-Shank_W0QQitemZ120655232183
how does it adjust?
is nice (but I think the previous owner loved it too much)
They are both of the knurled-ring, adjust without stopping the spindle type.
interesting - I don't know what that is
Or for facing you fit an anti-rotation bar and they wind out to the stop, then fast-retract.
wow, all the other boring heads are going to laugh at it, for that cherry and brass stand thing
They are not inexpensive... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/50-TAPER-Wohlhaupter-UPA-4-BORING-HEAD-/180590939688
the second one is MT2 - man that's a small shank
It's actually a tiny little boring bar.
But perfect for making model steam engines I suspect.
its, its, its beautiful! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIpYD2hHIis
It is rather nice, I can't decide if it is radio control or stop-motion video. I am thinking the latter.
the waving grass kinda gives it away
Other videos indicate that it is radio controlled. Perhaps he ran it very slowly and then speeded up the video to get a good scale motion effect? It does look very close to scale speed and motion.
that may be true
BT30 boring bar http://www.maritool.com/Indexable-Tooling-Micron-Boring-Bar-Set/c50_146/index.html
my problem is I can't measure a bore down to a micron
the wheel spin means its real
and well driven for scale
I did participate in off road driving many years ago, its fun
jthornton: And that Maritool one needs you to stop the spindle to adjust it too. (Which also means it is no good for facing).
Arguably with a CNC mill, there is no need for facing operations from the boring bar.

Hmm, you know, this is as odd as he says: http://www.linuxcnc.org/component/option,com_kunena/Itemid,20/func,view/catid,38/id,5850/lang,english/#5856
andypugh, did you try it for yourself?
(just curious - I haven't)
I don't have a 2.4.6 here.
oh. neither do I
Plus I rather suspect that the symptoms depend on his tool-table setting.
I have a feeling that the anti-gouging causes more trouble than it saves. I think perhaps you should be able to say "Yes, OK, but do it anyway", especially for the really marginal cases (for example, postprocessors that work to limited precision)
andypugh: ask him for config files
Well, the strangeness is that it happily does 6 arcs and complains on the 7th.
And looking at the G-code, they really are identical. (in fact, I don't know why they aren't in a loop)
here it loads fine on 2.4 and master
i have problem here on 2.4.5
i thing depend the tool table data
does default path for opening .ngc files in a runInPlace stay at ~/emc2/ncfiles?
i exec the std 'cd emc2-dev; . scripts/emc-env<tab.; emc' yet i get old ~/emc2 as default ngc dir.
if i chg last to './scripts/emc' then i get ~/emc2-dev/nc_files. isnt that done by emc-environment? ( yes its a RIP )
its reading the ini from the old emc2 install despite the emc-env<tab>
i cant see how this happens thru the emc-environment script, i must be execing the old ~/emc2/scripts version somehow
no, i'm execing the right scripts, but if i choose any of 'My Configurations' the files are from ~/emc2, if from 'sample configurations' then they're from the RIP ~/emc2-dev
so what use is that nag about 'do you want to copy' ? thats what created these bad links. now i need to kill that part of the presented file tree so i cant choose any of those files again
The configs are shared, I think
I think all configs end up in ~/emc/configs
no, the axis.ini in ~/emc2 sets PROGRAM_PREFIX=/home/tomp/emc2/nc_files ( this aligns to MyConfigurations), but... axis.ini in ~/emc2-dev sets it as /home/tomp/emc2-dev/nc_files ( this aligns to 'sample configurations ')
back to killing the My Configurations
hah! rename ~/emc2 to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxemc2
no more fsckd up My Configuration
