[12:48:04] <alex_joni> hi ray
[12:48:24] <alex_joni> works from here (athens)
[12:53:15] <rayh> Hi alex
[12:53:43] <rayh> Okay thanks. I was wanting to look up a real addy.
[12:53:59] <rayh> How is athens?
[12:54:43] <rayh> It was 39c here today. darn hot.

[23:10:46] <lilo> [Global Notice] Good evening all. We just experienced routing loss to one of our main rotation servers. It's been removed from rotation for now and we're looking at the problem. Apologies for the inconvenience, and thank you for using freenode!
[23:13:15] <jepler> oops, looks like I forgot to join the channel after my system bounced yesterday.
[23:13:25] <SWPadnos> heh - oops
[23:14:28] <SWPadnos> I'm just about to send a big email to CCED - can you confirm that there are tools available for use with emc that can translate DXF, STL, and bitmaps to G-code?
[23:14:36] <SWPadnos> (even if they're not so easy to use)
[23:15:48] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> I have a cam app that can do stl to g-code, and blender can do mostly anything to stl, so yes I think you can say that
[23:15:56] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> g'night all
[23:15:59] <SWPadnos> what's the CAM app?
[23:16:06] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> edgecam
[23:16:10] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> and others
[23:16:17] <SWPadnos> ok. is that free, and does it run on Linux?
[23:16:28] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> I only use edgecam though, IIRC alex said something about meshcam
[23:16:36] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> no :( expensive and windows-based
[23:16:44] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> you may be able to run in wine though
[23:17:01] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> cradek made an image to gcode script
[23:17:03] <SWPadnos> ok - that's what I was looking for. I'm thinking of the scripts for dxf/bitmap/stl to g-code
[23:17:04] <SWPadnos> right
[23:17:10] <SWPadnos> and jepler recently GUI-ified it
[23:17:16] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> ooh, neato
[23:17:21] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> linky?
[23:17:34] <SWPadnos> I think it's in the latest HEAD of emc2 and AXIS
[23:17:39] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> oh, ok
[23:17:51] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> I'll get it tomorrow then
[23:17:54] <SWPadnos> not sure though. you have to set up the AXIS ini file correctly to run the script
[23:17:54] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> anyway, gnight
[23:17:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra_> ok
[23:17:59] <SWPadnos> cool. night
[23:36:09] <SWPadnos> jepler, are you around?
