[09:03:07] <perru> bye qrp, thx a lot for your time
[09:03:18] -!- qrp has quit [Quit: Page closed]
[09:03:51] <perru> at the beginning (and as a newbie on this...) my idea is to go step by step
[09:05:03] <perru> fisrt time use a cheaper stepper motors and breakout card (something like chinese, on ebay..)
[09:05:09] -!- crank has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
[09:05:46] <perru> to test and experiment with cnc on emc2 at low cost
[09:06:32] -!- crank [crank!~crank@shell.tuxshells.com] has joined #linuxcnc
[09:06:58] <perru> and step by step increase the cost to finally make a pretty machine
[09:06:59] <perru> :)
[09:07:46] <Vq> So you don't intend to start with a 5-axis machine?
[09:09:03] <perru> directly not, it can be disastrous
[09:09:05] <perru> hahahaha
[09:10:44] <perru> the cost of my final machine is so high and my actual budget now very limited
[09:12:10] <perru> i dont want expend my money buying all the material without knowing anything about emc2
[09:14:46] <Vq> ok
[09:15:11] <perru> my idea is to make a initial prototipe with 3 axis (surely on wood), test it, and little by little upgrade it
[09:15:53] <perru> what type of machine have you got Vq?
[09:16:18] <Vq> I would probably start without encoders and the extra I/O card then.
[09:17:04] <Vq> Currently a plasma cutter and we're working to convert a lathe.
[09:17:37] <perru> wow!!!
[09:17:57] <Vq> Our first emc2 experiments was with a small PCB mill, so it's not a bad starting point.
[09:18:01] <perru> yes i would start without encoders
[09:18:03] <perru> ;)
[09:18:29] <perru> this is my idea, a simple starting point
[09:19:18] <perru> i have a lot of things to read and learn yet
[09:20:36] <perru> yes, as i read at linuscnc page, to start i only need a paralell cable and one driver per motor, isnt it?
[09:21:33] <perru> like in this image: http://www.google.es/imgres?imgurl=http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/common/images/whatstep1.png&imgrefurl=http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/common/user_intro.html&h=600&w=800&sz=201&tbnid=g-dARCS4Js_A1M:&tbnh=92&tbnw=123&zoom=1&usg=__u-oPoPwNrQhlrnGo6xfR1xZ_mlM=&docid=bFyoY8BxpEahCM&sa=X&ei=fSfdUbz6Cq3Q7Abh3YDADw&ved=0CFMQ9QEwBQ&dur=526
[09:21:38] <Vq> And a machine with a parallel-port. ;)
[09:21:55] <perru> hahahahaha, sure
[09:21:58] <perru> hahahahaha
[09:22:30] <perru> im going to recycle some old computers
[09:22:57] <perru> one for the ATX power supply
[09:23:26] <Vq> ok
[09:25:22] <Vq> You will have to tweak the cpu time period that emc2 can use, older computer means less time, which means less speed/precision.
[09:25:52] <Vq> And if you use different pins on the parallel-port you'll have to configure that as well.
[09:26:19] <mk0> you better buy modern PC
[09:26:20] <Vq> Otherwise the stepper_mm configuration should work pretty much as is.
[09:26:46] <mk0> it's not that expensive. $150
[09:30:41] <perru> oh, sorry, when i say old pc i mean an 2 years old pc
[09:33:10] <Vq> New enough to me. :)
[09:34:21] <RyanS_> how far plus or minus can you go past recommended drill sizes for tapping? 0.5mm, 0.1?
[09:36:37] <perru> then summarizing, my final idea is possible with emc2, I only need an extra pci card for the encoders
[09:36:42] -!- mattiasb has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[09:42:51] <Vq> perru: If the existing kinematic system matches your 5-axis machine idea (or if you're willing to write your own), sure.
[09:45:11] <perru> great
[09:45:59] <perru> another question, can I export code from catia file to emc2?
[09:47:44] <Vq> No idea

[10:00:38] <Vq> Unless you count running emc2 in simulated mode without hardware, then all you need is a pc.
[10:02:03] <perru> ok, no brekout card needed then

[10:05:02] <Vq> Well, strictly speaking it depends on what your stepper controller requires for the step/dir signal (but it shouldn't be an issue).

[12:51:42] <Erich521> Hallo Linuxgemeinde. Habe mit dem Zeichenprogramm Inventor Bauteile gezeichnet. Kann mir bitte jemand sagen, wie ich Linux cnc dazu bringe nach meiner Zeichnung zu fräsen? Es gibt das Programm "Mastercamp" oder "Powermail" mit denen kann man die Zeichnung für Linuxcnc konfigurieren, ist das richtig? Gibt es hier evtl. eine einfahcere Lösung?
[12:52:33] <cradek> Hi Erich521, can you ask in english?
[12:54:39] <cpresser> cradek: he wants to know how to generate Gcode from a inventor sketch
[12:55:07] <cradek> ah, sorry, I don't know that
[12:55:33] <cpresser> Erich521: http://www.inventorcam.com/de/
[12:55:50] <cpresser> however, that might be really expensive.
[12:56:56] <cpresser> Erich521: those are some open-source tools for CAM: http://replicat.org/generators you can use them after you export your sketch to dxf

[12:58:26] <syyl_> oooh
[12:58:29] <syyl_> a baby bridgeport :D
[12:59:02] <spacka> "updated motor controls"
[12:59:08] <spacka> where are zee motors?
[12:59:30] <syyl_> there is one on the head ;)
[12:59:31] <cradek> there's only one motor, it's on top
[12:59:37] <spacka> thats what i thought
[13:00:12] <cradek> updated motor controls might mean "I fixed the power switch"
[13:00:41] <syyl_> jup
[13:00:44] <cradek> looks like a good size for a basement
[13:01:03] <spacka> i'm looking for something that already has motor mounts even if the motors aren't usable
[13:01:36] <spacka> but preferably something with motors that are drivable with a gecko
[13:03:01] -!- sirdancealot [sirdancealot!~sirdancea@98.82.broadband5.iol.cz] has joined #linuxcnc
[13:07:40] <Erich521> Give it also frreware, for generate Gcode from inventor?
[13:08:36] <cpresser> Erich521: most likely not. inventor is pay-ware, why sould anyone bother to implement a free cam?
[13:09:35] <spacka> been experimenting with heekscnc
[13:09:58] <syyl_> me too
[13:10:03] <syyl_> and i stoped after a day
[13:10:09] <syyl_> as i was pretty anoyed by it
[13:10:43] <spacka> that may be my case too
[13:11:14] <syyl_> for 2,5d work i would go for cambam or sheetcam...
[13:12:04] <spacka> what about 3d
[13:12:28] <syyl_> i do my 3d programming in proEngineer
[13:12:52] -!- mattiasb has quit [Ping timeout: 276 seconds]
[13:13:58] <syyl_> but thats a bit more expensive...
[13:14:29] <spacka> i was surprised the open source tools were so lacking
[13:14:40] <spacka> when the cad stuff is semi decent

[16:21:10] <skunkworks> replace battery - back to normal

[16:27:11] <cradek> I don't know whether it would make an improvement
[16:27:22] <skunkworks> I guess I can try it both ways...
[16:27:26] <cradek> does it work badly as-is?
[16:27:39] <skunkworks> I have only tried interpoated so far..

[16:36:26] <skunkworks> yes - very happy. that is full stepping it (2 phase on) so around .00054 per step.
[16:36:29] <Connor> ccn version vs pc version.. what's the difference ?

[16:37:51] <skunkworks> yes - that one doesn't boot..

[16:51:50] <PetefromTn> frallzor: Nice man way to stick with it. That machine makes some mighty fine engravings.
[16:54:08] <Connor> frallzor: how did you fix the warping problem ?
[16:55:05] <frallzor> thicker fixture
[16:55:43] <Connor> So my idea worked. :)
[16:55:54] <frallzor> sliiiiight warp still though
[16:55:55] <gene> and likely a deeper o-ring slot so the ring only has to crush 2-3 thou and its all sitting on the fixture.
[16:56:20] <frallzor> but nothing that couldnt be fixed when attaching it there
[16:56:46] <frallzor> slot is deeper than rev1 yes =)and not it sinks down nicely
[16:56:55] <frallzor> 4mm depth with 6mm seal
[16:57:27] <jdh> what kind of bit?

[17:30:52] <ssi> the AWD one
[17:30:52] <FinboySlick> Woah...
[17:31:10] <ssi> what used to be the R32, but in mk6 it's a 2.0l turbo 4
[17:31:21] <ssi> instead of the 3.2l NA v6
[17:32:10] <FinboySlick> ssi: Do you consider it an improvement?
[17:32:16] <ssi> definitely
[17:32:21] <PetefromTn> Ya know I used to have a friend down in florida when I was in high school that had one of the original VW rabbit GTI's/ It was completely black with blacked out windows and black low profile BBS wheels and had black recaro seats with red piping on them. That was such a sweet little car and I drove it a couple times. It hauled ass pretty good since it was modded. He also had a kicking stereo in it.
[17:32:24] <ssi> makes more power stock, and way easier to add a lot of power to
[17:32:40] <ssi> stock is 260hp, with a fuel pump, intake, and flash it's 340hp
[17:32:51] <ssi> add exhaust and another flash and it'll be close to 370
[17:32:55] <ssi> by then I'll likely need a clutch
[17:33:14] <PetefromTn> is that all armchair HP or have you actually dynoed it?
[17:33:24] <ssi> mostly armchair
[17:33:30] <ssi> but it traps 99mph at 3700lb
[17:33:33] <ssi> which maths to 280hp at the wheels
[17:33:38] <ssi> and remember AWD is 15-18% loss
[17:33:44] <PetefromTn> thats not too shabby huh.
[17:34:10] <PetefromTn> your'e probably like 340--350 or so...
[17:34:19] <PetefromTn> what was the 60'
[17:34:25] <ssi> too slow :)
[17:34:28] <ssi> 2.1 I think was my best
[17:34:34] <ssi> should be able to get it down to 1.7 o rso
[17:34:42] <ssi> but awd launches are not as easy as you think :)
[17:34:49] <PetefromTn> 1.7 would be decent
[17:35:51] <ssi> if I could get the launch figured out, it'd run low 13s
[17:35:55] <ssi> as it was, I was running low 14s
[17:36:06] <ssi> also need race gas
[17:36:18] <ssi> I showed up at the track with over half a tank, and I wanted to burn some down before I put race gas in it
[17:36:24] <ssi> but they closed the gas station before I got a chance
[17:36:34] <ssi> I have a 100 octane program that is a NOTICEABLE improvement
[17:38:03] <PetefromTn> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=524GMEXvqLk
[17:38:44] <PetefromTn> That is what a 3800turbo fiero GT is capable of. that one is kind of a shitbox but it hauls ever lovin' ass.... I want to build the same basic motor in mine.
[17:39:51] <PetefromTn> There are actually several 3800 turbos that run in the high nine-low ten second range and are street driven.
[17:39:57] <ssi> i believe it
[17:40:03] <cpresser> get a manual transmission :)
[17:40:27] <PetefromTn> Most impressive thing is that the motors this guy uses are almost completely stock internals.
[17:40:29] <ssi> I ran an 11.4 @ 121 in my 300zx
[17:41:23] <PetefromTn> I would rather have a manual but my fiero is an auto like this one and besides the auto uses the 4t65eHD tranny which shifts electronically WAY faster than you could manually. Most of the faster fieros are using it.

[17:52:30] <FinboySlick> PetefromTn: I never saw a hatchback fusion, are you sure you aren't talking about the focus?
[17:53:02] <PetefromTn> Oops my bad I get them confused. My neighbor has a black fusion tho it is a nice car.
[17:53:28] <PetefromTn> There are some badass focus' running around tho. They also have an EV focus now too..

[17:53:53] <PetefromTn> Yup thats what my neighbor has. Nice looking car
[17:54:05] <FinboySlick> I did chip it to 91 octane and add a borla exhaust and magnaflow intake.

[17:55:03] <FinboySlick> The transmission could be better in terms of performance but so far mine has done its job quite well.
[17:55:12] <FinboySlick> Fourth is a bit too high.
[17:55:51] <FinboySlick> I think they made it that way because kicking it into manual always downshifts to fourth.

[18:32:01] <abetusk_w__> I'm experimenting with some UV curable soldermask paint I purchased from ebay. I'm trying to get a process down that will be able to leave some copper pads exposed. I'm trying to lay down a layer of ink or paint through a stencil, then lay the UV curable soldermaks, cure it, then take off the painted regions with acetone.
[18:33:17] <abetusk_w__> I've used a sharpie to try and cover the pads, but I've found that even after the sharpie dries, the paint 'unmelts' it and the sharpie just wipes off after the UV paint is applied. I've tried spray paint and that's worked in that I can take of covered portions with acetone after the UV paint has cured
[18:33:40] <abetusk_w__> but I was hoping to use an airbrush with some india ink to get a bit more precision
[18:33:46] <abetusk_w__> does anyone have suggestions?
[18:34:22] <abetusk_w__> and I know this isn't a linuxcnc question, but I know there are a lot of people here who do some homebrew PCBs, so I was hoping you all wouldn't mind if I hijacked this channel for the question
[18:35:36] <ssi> what about wax or silicone mold release or something similar
[18:35:42] <ssi> anything to keep the mask from sticking

[18:36:01] <abetusk_w__> sure. Where do I get it and how do I apply it?
[18:36:22] <uw> has anyone here (successfully) taken apart a dial caliper and put it back together?
[18:36:36] <abetusk_w__> The concern I have is that the stencil will be potentially a bit flimsy, perhaps made of mylar, and I want to make sure to get the fine detail out
[18:37:24] <ssi> mold release comes in a spray can
[18:37:35] <ssi> and really any dry silicone spray will do
[18:37:47] <ssi> but yea with a stencil like that,
[18:37:50] <ssi> you may end up with fuzzy edges
[18:37:51] <ssi> or worse
[18:38:13] <abetusk_w__> right. At the point of doing spray cans, I might as well use spray paint, right?
[18:38:17] <ssi> unless you apply it like you're screen printing
[18:38:26] <abetusk_w__> I do have an air brush, so I wonder if the india ink will work
[18:38:30] <ssi> spraypaint will be much harder to remove
[18:38:31] <abetusk_w__> If not, maybe some other paint?
[18:38:41] <abetusk_w__> I just tried it and it seemd to work well...
[18:40:46] <abetusk_w__> though I'm not sure if it would do well on fine detail

[19:31:05] <Connor> not really. the only other thing is the one has a connector on it..
[19:31:32] <Connor> how accurate are they ?
[19:31:48] <Connor> and are they N/C or N/O ?
[19:32:12] <Loetmichel> pretty good, they use a "vandal proof" buttopn switch for industrial use if i see that right
[19:32:13] <frallzor> 22 vs 32mm thickness
[19:32:25] <frallzor> according to the simple sketch I´d say NO
[19:32:30] <Loetmichel> these are about 1/100m precise
[19:32:51] <Connor> vandal proof ?
[19:32:52] <frallzor> I agress they are pretty good

[21:15:00] <skunkworks> mine did..
[21:15:53] <skunkworks> ? you mean use an optical mouse reading the back of a belt for feedback?

[21:40:17] <rob__H> nice little video for every one :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4O_nOclcAs
[21:42:44] <cradek> awesome
[21:43:15] <cradek> those are faster than the hnc. I thought you had it sped up, except the chips and oil look right
[21:43:47] <rob__H> yea it does fly now that machine, 10m/min rapids
[21:44:12] <cradek> in your gang tooling setup are those little ER collet chucks?
[21:44:25] <rob__H> yep, ER16 in this case, on 20mm shanks
[21:44:44] <rob__H> home made if you notice :)
[21:44:47] <cradek> I bet that's a very convenient way to do drilling type stuff
[21:44:48] <rob__H> the block that is
[21:44:52] <cradek> neat
[21:45:03] <rob__H> so is the turning holder
[21:45:23] <cradek> heh the only clue is they're not black
[21:45:39] <rob__H> ye and no fancy adjuster thing too
[21:45:42] <rob__H> for the hight
[21:45:55] <`Nerobro_> so, er16 and er32 are the tiny collets
[21:45:59] <`Nerobro_> desgined for tool changers
[21:46:00] <`Nerobro_> right?
[21:46:16] <rob__H> yea same as you would have in Mill in ER collets
[21:46:32] <cradek> ER are a collet family that have a wide clamping range, so if you have a full set of collets you can clamp any size
[21:46:36] <rob__H> ER16 go 1mm - 10mm
[21:46:38] <cradek> important for drills
[21:47:17] <cradek> ER40 can do about 1/8" to 1" (26mm)
[21:47:23] <rob__H> you can get tap holding collets for ER also, but i dont bother
[21:47:30] <cradek> yeah, why bother for small taps
[21:47:51] <cradek> I put 1/4 taps in regular ERs all the time
[21:49:15] <cradek> oh the turret is bidirectional! cool, another improvement over the hnc.
[21:49:37] <rob__H> it used to be single like HNC as its the same design 90% of
[21:49:53] <rob__H> so we slapped a little servo motor in there instead :)
[21:50:02] <cradek> heh, cool
[21:50:12] <cradek> still air for the lift?
[21:50:17] <rob__H> well, 400w servo
[21:50:21] <rob__H> yea not alot you can do there
[21:50:41] <rob__H> was trying to stop it eating the air when in use
[21:50:52] <cradek> yeah they're bad for that
[21:50:57] <rob__H> now just collet closer leaking alot of air you can probly hear in video
[21:50:59] <cradek> it's mostly the collet closer though I think
[21:51:49] <rob__H> just picked up a kitagawa hydrolic closer to go on it... so that will be the end of that then
[21:52:17] -!- scooter has quit [Quit: leaving]
[21:53:38] <cradek> is CHNC bigger than 5C?
[21:53:44] <rob__H> 16C
[21:53:52] <rob__H> 42mm Max down spindle bore
[21:53:56] <rob__H> and collet
[21:54:04] <cradek> aha
[21:54:12] <rob__H> but can put collet in them that takes the C5
[21:54:16] -!- abetusk_w [abetusk_w!~abetusk@smtp.brightworks.cc.brightworks.cc] has parted #linuxcnc
[21:54:25] <rob__H> as 16C collets are pricy compared to there 5C size
[21:54:52] <cradek> yeah 5C are made everywhere in china, I bet 16C are made approximately nowhere, relatively
[21:55:49] -!- frallzor has quit []
[21:56:31] <rob__H> not as bad as it used to be, hardinge is crazy on price... but one UK company making them for around 70 now which is not bad used to be 110 min
[21:57:53] <rob__H> we do have a deadlength collet set now too and they work grate no pullback action then
[21:58:47] <cradek> this isn't your first retrofit I'm guessing
[21:58:55] <rob__H> 4th
[21:59:06] <cradek> all in one shop?
[21:59:20] <rob__H> leadwell 550 in videos was 1st, then a hardinge superslant, then the 2nd one.. then the little chnc
[21:59:23] <rob__H> yea
[21:59:27] <rob__H> my shop :)
[22:00:18] <rob__H> next planned is 4 axis hardinge superslant lathe with power tooling on one turret
[22:00:42] <cradek> ooh fun
[22:01:16] <rob__H> plus two VMCs waiting for my time at some point
[22:01:43] <Tom_itx> what motherboards do you use on them?
[22:01:45] <rob__H> one random tooled dahli.. other just bigger leadwell
[22:02:02] <rob__H> when ever i can get my hands on at the build time that works well
[22:02:40] <rob__H> i think the chnc has some Asus AMD AM3 board in it, with mesa hardware
[22:04:27] <cradek> my next machining project is a homemade delta robot - ought to be interesting at least.
[22:04:48] <rob__H> can it come and load my machine :)
[22:05:14] <cradek> eh, get yer own
[22:05:21] <rob__H> haha

[23:25:58] <spacka> is that hexapod thing a deltabot?"
[23:26:04] <spacka> and how is it 6 axis? :o
[23:26:09] <spacka> i don't see 6 axes there
[23:26:27] <spacka> are they not demonstrating them all?
[23:27:32] <Tom_itx> each arm is 2 axis
[23:27:35] <spacka> holy crap, i guess it's basically one of these:
[23:27:37] <Tom_itx> they pivot
[23:27:39] <spacka> https://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=fvwp&v=NDzUiZsbQtw
[23:27:48] <spacka> so it can do what i just pasted?
[23:28:09] -!- syyl_ has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[23:28:14] <spacka> but they were only demonstrating 3 of the axes?
[23:28:45] -!- lyzidiamond has quit [Client Quit]
[23:29:02] <Tom_itx> look closer
[23:29:26] <spacka> i see that they need to control 6 things to get it to move like that
[23:29:38] <spacka> but i don't see it demonstrating 6 axis capability
[23:48:45] <CaptHindsight> anyone ever seen a differential pressure sensor for Arduino? lots of barometric
[23:51:55] <spacka> i suppose you could use 2 of those
[23:51:56] <spacka> :)
