#emc-devel | Logs for 2008-09-29

[02:03:01] <cradek> arg, people are buying 7i43 and expecting it to work on 2.2
[02:24:14] <rayh> about time to set a date for 2.3?
[02:28:01] <cradek> setting a date is easy - deciding what would go in it (and finding a release manager to handle it) is harder
[02:29:29] <cradek> maybe we should all pore over the diffs and figure out what's new, and what's done, and what's not
[02:29:40] <cradek> that's step 1 I think
[02:29:47] <cradek> then, figure out what 2.3 should be
[02:32:40] <rayh> Perhaps a diffs and such page on the wiki.
[02:33:05] <rayh> as we firm things up.
[20:20:55] <cradek> apparently nobody has tried rigid-tapping left-handed (either that, or I just broke it)
[20:21:39] <cradek> hmm - or, threading with the spindle going backward
[20:21:43] <cradek> that's funny
[20:23:19] <skunkworks_> oops ;)
[20:25:01] <cradek> heh, I just broke my air-tap
[20:29:37] <cradek> fortunately, they are very inexpensive
[20:30:48] <jepler_> does that use inserts?
[20:31:50] <skunkworks_> inerts
[20:31:57] <cradek> ha
[20:32:14] <jepler_> hah
[20:41:49] <CIA-40> EMC: 03cradek 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/emc/kinematics/ (tc.h tp.c): Fix motion sync for threading/tapping. In some cases motion could oscillate around the desired position for a while at the beginning of the move.
[21:01:39] <cradek> Assigned to: John Kasunich (jmkasunich)
[21:01:42] <cradek> heh heh heh
[21:03:12] <cradek> argh, who assigned all the rfl bugs to me!?
[21:03:19] <cradek> oh... GUI-AXIS
[21:05:58] <cradek> 'mass update' on sf bugs doesn't work
[23:07:15] <jepler_> jepler_ is now known as jepler
[23:28:55] <jepler> cradek: in cutter comp mode, a concave G1-G2-G1 where the G2 nearly vanishes to nothing, the TP will end up acting like it's in "exact stop" mode since the peak velocity on the G2 will be very close to 0
[23:29:29] <jepler> TRUNK's "naive cam detector" for arcs might improve this situation though
[23:29:31] <cradek> that's true, unless it discards it, which I think comp might even do
[23:29:36] <cradek> comp in emc
[23:29:45] <cradek> if not, it could
[23:30:32] <jepler> so a .2499 tool and a .250 arc might be just about the worst case possible
[23:30:41] <cradek> yes
