I want to convert all my code to EMC
and use only EMC as I am so feed up with mach
might want to make a python script to do the obvious things first like tool prepare and load
then you only need to fit the tools into the table change T0101 to T1 G43H1 for the drillings
great for a guy that wants to play, but not for a working mans machine
learned that one the hard way
it is trivial
what do you mean no python?
I know it is a scripting language
to change this
Aero-Tec, do you manually change the tools?
I did the live CD so if the live CD loads python I have python running on it
line.split(';') for instance
right now I do
; is rem
this is a lathe !
so it is skipped
if you have the manual tool change then a T1M6 will stop the program and wait for you to change the tool
[18:34:25] -!- johngag has quit [Quit: Page closed]
what INI Gcode line should I use to turn off cutter comp?
in the MDI window type in T1 M6 and see if you get the insert tool prompt
and set the lathe so it is ready to run
cutter comp is G code
to get all of
so G49 turns off all cutter comp?
line 144 does it for you
[18:36:31] <jthornton> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/gcode.html#_g40_compensation_off_a_id_sec_g40_a
152 waits for your start command
[18:36:42] <jthornton> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/gcode.html#_g49_cancel_tool_length_compensation_a_id_sec_g49_tool_a
G49 - cancels tool length compensation
G40 - turn cutter compensation off
and G40 the other comp?
was not sure if EMC was the same
G40 is left right off G49 is Z off
Linuxcnc is Fanuc 11
Standard iso G-code
there are alot of G91 moves
yes line 146 is my Gcode INI line
G20 is inch
G4 P0.5 Sorery
500seconds is way to long
the code is somewhat of a mess, the first part is setup of variables, then the code starting at 146, and then the subs
mach can be set to seconds or micro sec
you can call the subs no problem the F and the s is in the wrong place
that is 500 micro seconds
it seams that this is a Oki NC
emc will read this as 500 seconds
so could one do .005 seconds in EMC?
Aero-Tec, you will have to go through and find each error and correct them to learn the differences
I know it would not be equal to .5 sec or 500 micro sec
[18:45:43] <jthornton> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/gcode.html#_g4_dwell_a_id_sec_g4_dwell_a
you should reference the G codes in the manual as you convert the files
I have been for the mill
you need to fo it by step
just need to learn the lathe
it is not so many work as you think
[18:47:51] -!- sumpfralle [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #linuxcnc
in your case i woudt go for Txx M6 next line G43 Hxx
I fixed on subroutine and a couple more errors so you have some ideas http://pastebin.com/A9J7k06X
change P to P.
I have a quick change tool post
no fancy angles
looks like I would use tool pos 2 for each
or do I use 7?
if your not using cutter diameter compensation it won't matter but 2 for turning and facing tools
it is pointing to the left for facing but the point is at the 2 position
lots to learn, thanks for the help
if your looking at the diagram the center of the X is the controlled point
did you see the changes I made to the g code?
looking at it now
I just opened the file in LinuxCNC and fixed each error then hit the reload button and go to the next

[19:09:46] <IchGuckLive> http://pastebin.com/KqSXNgE3
works with lathe sim
i added only the subs that are forced in
tool change T3 T4
as you said you only use T1
why all the extra . ?
did you use a script to do the conversion?
witch line P. ?
the rems have extra .
as i said it is trivial
P wars chaged to P.
(ROTORY TABLE STEP.P.ER MOUNT P.ROFILE.NC)
change P. back to P
I just got it myself
and search for G4
change there the numbers
sorry for that
you should be making chips in a few minutes now
[19:14:02] * jthornton wanders off to take a nap
im also off in 5min
I am great full for the help
Aero-Tec: do you now overcome this Please unhide 23
there is more to do if you want full access to this
o11 is called in line 23
it is ; commendet out
so you need to put the hole block infront of o10
P11 goes to 011 call
it is a pipe I start with so hole is there
no drilling needed
then By till tomorrow
3 in by .25 wall

I am now
JT-Shop: I am here now
I found out my tool table is mach got messed up some
so I have to redo a whack of it
and double check all of it
Aero-Tec: numbered variables 0-30 are local to the subroutine
[21:14:12] <JT-Shop> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/overview.html#_parameters_variables_a_id_sec_parameters_a
ok, thanks for the heads up on that one
also all my lathe subroutines are here http://gnipsel.com/shop/hardinge/hardinge.xhtml
I am really going to be glad to get rid of mach
I use them with ngcgui but the subroutine part is the same without
I was looking into installing ngngui
if you save subs as files you can name them so they make more sense
at least I think that was it
that make tons of sense
I make my subroutine work first standalone then add it to my ngcgui
like o<turnod> call [1.0000][-2.125]
the numbers in  are passed to the subroutine parameters
looks like you did something like what I was doing
but yours is way better
using your own subs to do most of the work
yeah i made that setup block
from a chunk of CI
I was doing something close to it with mach
sawed/shaped to size, handscraped, final machining, drilling etc done on the cnc mill

I just bought 3 blocks of cast iron and three 4V transformers from Ikea
I am not sure what to do with them.
These are the base and the transformer for the Jansjö light which I am hoping to use as a work light on my machines.
No doubt I will find some use for the cast-iron discs.
I want one of those. why the hell won't they ship it?
they're so weird about that.
[21:40:10] <andypugh> http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/00169659/

Sorry, this product is not for sale on our website, check if it is available in your local store.
I wish I could pay your price.
yeah $10 is a lot cheaper
add the 1kmi round trip drive to pick it up and it's not so cheap though
Do you know anyone nearer to an Ikea. (they could save postage by ditching the heavy base)
I wonder if they work OK on 5V?
[21:42:19] -!- bedah [email@example.com] has joined #linuxcnc
yeah but I wouldn't want to ask someone to go in that forsaken place
$17.25 shipped from amazom
That's UK price. So not horrible.
looks like a nice reading light
from amazon reviews, sounds like the power switches are lousy
[21:45:42] -!- mhaberler [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #linuxcnc
The internet reckons they run on 5V.
I wasn't plannning on keeping the power switch.
It will connect to machine 5V if I can find it.
For extra cool, I could switch it through the 7i64 :-)
the light on my mill has a toggle on the side of the control head - low tech but simple and reliable
A quick experiment shows exactly the same current consumption anywhere from 3.5V to 6V. It is lower above or below that range.
it must use a buck/constant current regulator
