emcrules: good evening.
someone has my normal nick registered. might have been me from years ago
what is normal?
I have two others that I have no idea what the passwrds are
do they ever release them?
this is lilo-net?
maybe after 50 years :P
irc has a warm spot in my heart... I have been in a room for so long that even though half a world apart you still get to 'know' some of them. It was sad to hear one day that one of my online friends was in a bicycle accident :( Didn't make it.
how are you all
elmo: someone other than lilo?
doing well here emcrules
atmega: yes. other then lilo.
not to shabby just cleaning the garage Damm mess!!!!
in this cold?
yep thank god for a heater
I've been on one channel since the early 90's, lots of changes
electric of course
no fission heater?
linus even showed up a time or two back then
maybe in 20 or so years
I am celebrating today, a great day...enjoying even the miserable cold Michigan weather
KB8: why is that?
because it is a great day to be alive...and
42 years ago today Operation Meade River ended
it was on my birthday, so I never ever forget
funny mine was yesterday
only 33 years ago
I just wanted to share that bit of history with someone, anyone...
happy belated to you emcrules
same to you
I do often wonder what'll happen if I ever kick the bucket
with regards all my online friends
some groups archive and keep online passed users websites
Thats a nice thought
the question is if my only contact with you guys is IRC, unless I tell my missus, nobody will tell anybody about it
I belong to a group of older guys, and we have a telephone chain, if any thing happens to one of us...we have advised our children as to what to do and how to contact one of our group members
you live on in the irc logs!
I irc via screen(1), my session could outlive me.
Anyone here know a good place to get a piece of stainless steel tube?
[01:25:20] <atmega> http://www.onlinemetals.com/
or ebay... there is a scrapyard/metal recycling place near here that sells stuff by the pound, sometimes you get lucky
Where are you, and what are you looking for?
i'm in the central US, and i'm looking for enough money to stop caring.
oh, wait, you weren't talking to me. *whistles innocently*
go work for walmart
I've already done a 2.5 year stent. no thanks.
whine about working for walmart?
err... I didn't say that out loud did I?
done plenty of that, too. :)
leave god forsaken arkansas
Did the health insurance at Walmart pay for that stent?
health insurance? walmart?
oh he meant stint.
unless, perhaps, there are two juri's

on the topic of communicating with IRC folks about them passing... I have a script that will auto send an email to a few other relatives when I pass that gives all the info on what rooms I 'belong' to and other online niceties and inform them what has happened. Just a nice gesture I guess.

Anyone familiar with barloaders on CNC lathes?
The question would be, is there a 3 jaw chuck which can be manipulated like a collet. You would adjust to desired size and then tight a set screw and the chuck would act as a collet for automatic loading.
Anyone seen one of these gems?
I have seen the parts from a swiss auto which bar feeds but not a cnc one up close
Well, it's actually for an B60 Index-Werke
the auto I have here is a single size collet with a closer mechanism
which of course as barloader already, but it uses collets... which are costly
I think I could make one, I think it may be easiest to modify one to suit my needs
but bar feeds for capstan types are relatively crude, just a pusher
or get a cnc barfeed off fleabay
that is a swiss auto is it not?, the one here had a weighted pusher, one bar at a time
just basicly a slotted tube the pusher is guided by the tube the weight pulls on a plate passing through the slot, internal cone on the pusher to centralise the spinning bar
hello sebastian, you have a question?
i've configured a gantry system
but moving manually is not working with axis
what could i've done wrong?
your computer isnt turned on
you have not enabled it and got out of estop
if i want to move by left arrowkey, only the X axis is moving
perhaps being a bit more descriptive might help
i've made this "setp gantrykins.joint-6 0"
so that the sixth is equal the zero
X = U
homing works great
mdi works too
you haven't really described what is wrong
and what is happening
i've made a gantry system
where U and X should do the same
because it's physically the same axis, but has 2 different motors on each side
sry my english is not the best
yeah ok now its making some more sense
homing works great and mdi_commands too
I haven't had much experience with gantry systems
so basically its all working, but when you attempt to "jog" the machine only one of the motors is turning
i think axis does not support gantry systems
you can try it with one of the other interfaces but it doesn't sound like it would change much
I believe that your problem is solvable
I have only heard of gantry's being set up with both motors set as being the same axis, but i believe the kins thing your using may work differently
the problem is when you jog the axis its only increasing X, I'm not sure why that's not going through to the kins module, thats where I would be looking perhaps
yeah thats outside my knowlage
just having a look now
I have never done a gantry system either, just remember the odd fact :)

might give you some info perhaps
you need to toggle between joint mode and axis mode i believe

ok I might just have to get that
what do you guys think?
its not a 32Kw aluminium spraying monster
its the first bridgeport I've seen for sale in australia ;->

alex_joni: You have a link to the encoder you used for your radio, and is it "indented" so you feel it hitting notches as it's being turned?
alex_joni: err I mean detents
good day to all
Jymmm: like I said I used a mechanical quadrature switch (cheap one)
and it does have detents (from the switches)
it should be 2-3$ or so
anyone know where I can source a nema 34 50:1 gearbox?

hello rizo, you have a question?
I am reading the emc hal documentation. It says "A kinematics module is implemented as a HAL component, and is permitted to export pins and parameters. It consists of several C functions (as opposed to HAL functions)".
Why opposed to HAL functions?
Arent hal functions also written in C?
the functions in a kins module aren't added to hal threads or called by hal; they are called by emc's motion controller.
Ok, but every hal component probably also consists of seceral C functions?
Ok, but every hal component probably also consists of several C functions?
HAL components export functions that can be added to HAL threads
those functions have a specific pair of arguments, and will only be executed if attached to a thread
other than that kind of difference, yes, both kinematics modules and HAL modules consist of C code, including C functions
ok, thank you :)
the other thing that's different about a kinematics module is that the functions it provides are exported to the kernel, and are "linked" to the motion controller calls to those functions
this linking is automatic, in the same way that a read function might be provided by a decide driver
I don't know if HAL functions are exported to the kernel, but I do know that they are never called unless specifically added to a HAL thread
atmega, no thanks, unless you have a spare kicking around
atmega: are you feeling ok?
mostly... I do tend to suffer from wrong-window-itis though
oh I see
that goes around
and parker seems to have a 4 week lead time for 50:1 nema34 gearboxes

how do you get rid of steady state error while moving?
frob the tach gain or FF1
look at that.
[19:37:39] <skunkworks> http://imagebin.ca/img/W9djKuh.png
.1 move - cruise at 23ipm
* skunkworks doesn't really know what he is doing...
knowing what you're doing is for people who play things safe too often. ;)
what helps that?
maybe try messing with D - too high or too low can both do it
funny that it goes away while moving. could there be a loose motor coupling or something?
have to check
could be loose? dunno if that would do it, but something seems a bit weird.
it's real oscillation - many counts - it's not just dithering
I'm guessing you can go MUCH higher on your P gain, and that will make it a lot less sloppy looking

SWPadnos: cradek jepler http://tim.cexx.org/?p=633
SWPadnos: The details below are killer
how to achieve the gcode for the desired notes
oh. it's tedious but conceptually easy
It be cool if I could get the laser to produce music AND at the same time create something theme releated to the music
with suitably settable laser power, you might be able to do that
but it would only be 2-note polyphonic :)
I forget about that =)
well, I do have Z, but that would be interesting
Especially since Z is only automated controlled via serial port
ok, back to my mothers computer and the CUDA install
SWPadnos: Heh, maybe I could toss in control of the blower too for those lower notes
tom3p, Those might be added in post with youtube
I know you can add annotations
not sure why styles it supports though

anyone seen Andy Pugh lately?
really helped to turn the current limit up on all the amps now. ;)
we don't need no stinking limits... if you can't crank them yank them :)
we had them turned way down for testing
following error is <.0002
wise move I'd say
that is real good
is that at rapid speeds?
I think it is a bit higher - but not much
that was at 50ipm
and the error is only at acc/decel
your moving a hunk of iron too
it is all on roller bearings - I think that helps a lot
I remember that
I don't have accelleration way up though.
getting close to making some chips?
made some. but yes. Itching :)
how did the concrete go?
I bet, how long have you been working on it?
a bust today, the footer was still too green to fasten the forms to so he will be back Wednesday to try again
years. but really focused over the last year or so. (only working on it about once a week)'
JT-Shop: toss bags of charcoal in there and light em up!
JT-Shop: Bet it won't be green by wed =)
supposed to get a foot or more of snow tomorrow
it's all ready hard enough but the light went away and so did the concrete guys :P
we are getting some rain
I've seen them unthaw 4ft of frozen ground that way
Yep, just layed out bags of charcoal briquets in a row, lit em up, then covered them with 2ft wide sheet metal. Next day they could bring in the tractor to dig up the pipeline
sounds like more fun than I had digging the footer yesterday
JT-Shop: but you were playing in mud not snow, no?
hard packed frozen rock infested clay rock... did I mention rocks!
I need to get the photos developed
