#emc-devel | Logs for 2007-12-22

[00:00:12] <jmkasunich> I think it would be tomorrow, but they aren't doing that for december
[00:00:54] <jmkasunich> so if I wind up going, it will either be between xmas and new years, or january 19
[17:40:07] <SWPadnos_> SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
[20:54:20] <jmkasunich> ok, this seems too blatent to be a real bug, what am I missing
[20:54:22] <jmkasunich> lathe config
[20:54:42] <jmkasunich> I click on X, hit home axis, X display goes to zero and the home icon appears
[20:54:57] <jmkasunich> click on Z, hit home axis, Y display goes to zero and the home icon appears
[20:55:20] <jmkasunich> why is there even a Y on the screen in a lathe config?
[20:56:29] <rayh> IMO a Y[axis_1] axis section has to be in the ini.
[20:57:08] <jmkasunich> there is such a section in the ini
[20:57:19] <jmkasunich> I assumed that it would be ignored tho
[20:57:44] <jmkasunich> I'm also getting very very annoyed with the interpreter reset when you change from manual to MDI
[20:58:08] <jmkasunich> * jmkasunich is getting a taste of being a user instead of a developer
[20:58:09] <jmkasunich> bout time
[20:59:37] <rayh> phone
[21:01:08] <SWPadnos> jmkasunich, are you using lathe mode in AXIS?
[21:01:15] <jmkasunich> yes
[21:01:34] <SWPadnos> oh - isn't the second axis lebelled Z?
[21:01:51] <SWPadnos> hmmm - actually, the "AXES" variable may need to say "X Z"
[21:02:12] <jmkasunich> you mean COORDINATES ?
[21:02:15] <jmkasunich> AXES is a number
[21:02:18] <SWPadnos> could be
[21:02:22] <SWPadnos> ok - then COORDINATES
[21:02:51] <jmkasunich> I could have sworn I copied this config from nist-lathe or something like that, but I could be mistaken, might have copied stepper-inch
[21:09:04] <jmkasunich> in the nist lathe config, AXES = 3 and COORDINATES = XYZ
[21:09:51] <jmkasunich> ditto for lathe-pluto
[21:10:14] <SWPadnos> odd
[21:10:18] <SWPadnos> maybe
[21:10:48] <jmkasunich> I guess I wait for cradek - he has used lathe alot
[21:12:31] <fenn> it should say AXES = 3 and COORDINATES = X Z
[21:14:17] <fenn> er, rather, it COULD say that
[23:36:16] <cradek> jmkasunich: [TRAJ]LATHE=1
[23:37:01] <cradek> err [DISPLAY]LATHE=1
[23:38:54] <cradek> [TRAJ]
[23:38:54] <cradek> AXES = 3
[23:38:54] <cradek> COORDINATES = X Z
[23:38:58] <cradek> [AXIS_0]
[23:38:59] <cradek> ...
[23:39:02] <cradek> [AXIS_2]
[23:39:03] <cradek> ...
[23:39:15] <cradek> ^^ this is what my config looks like currently
[23:56:16] <jmkasunich> I have the display part, and axes = 3
[23:56:23] <jmkasunich> but coords says X Y Z
[23:56:37] <jmkasunich> both sample lathe configs have that (nist-lathe, and pluto-lathe)
[23:56:54] <jmkasunich> I'll try the fix here, and if it works I'll fix the samples
[23:57:35] <jmkasunich> do you have an [AXIS_1] section in your ini file?
[23:57:43] <jmkasunich> I do, with dummy data
[23:58:33] <cradek> no I don't
[23:58:43] <cradek> [DISPLAY]LATHE=1 is what replaces Y with Dia
[23:59:13] <cradek> all of this is in a state of fux so it depends a lot on what version you're using
[23:59:21] <jmkasunich> released 2.2
[23:59:26] <jmkasunich> probably 2.2.2 I guess
[23:59:34] <jmkasunich> state of fux eh?
