[00:55:14] <Dave911> cradek: I replaced the encoder on my lathe spindle last night and the replacement fixed my encoder problem. I put the encoder into counter mode for max speed capability and I ran some rudimentary threading tests and everything looks good with a G33. No oscillation on any kind that I can seel. The Z locks onto the spindle sync as if it was geared. I'm going to tool up the lathe and...
[00:55:16] <Dave911> ...create some Gcode to cut some trailer axle spindles and I'll let you know if I seen any problems then. But so far everything looks great! Thanks!
[03:36:22] <cradek> Dave911: sounds great! remind me what version are you testing?
[04:22:45] <Dave911> The master I pulled on Saturday ?? 2.4.0 pre
[04:38:16] <cradek> Dave911: that's great, thanks for that report
[04:38:48] <Dave911> Anytime! :-)
[07:40:05] <alex_joni> cradek, SWPadnos: just fyi http://imagebin.org/70699
[08:50:37] <micges_work> alex_joni: around?
[09:00:33] <alex_joni> yup
[09:11:04] <micges_work> In emc I would like to run straight line, velocity on begin = 100, vel on end 1000mm/min, and velocity constantly rising from begin to end during move
[09:11:12] <micges_work> Is it possible?
[09:12:12] <alex_joni> hmm
[09:12:23] <alex_joni> do you know how long the move it?
[09:12:40] <micges_work> yes
[09:12:50] <alex_joni> you could with a custom component
[09:13:02] <alex_joni> set Mxx to set the component before the move
[09:13:10] <alex_joni> then have your component change AF from 0.1 to 1
[09:13:15] <alex_joni> based on position
[09:13:54] <micges_work> cool, thanks
[09:13:59] <alex_joni> I would probably do something like: start-pos, end-pos, trigger
[09:17:41] <alex_joni> micges_work: let me know if it works :D
[09:18:02] <micges_work> our waterjet require this functionality, I will check if Mxx hack can be used for normal 24/7 work
[09:18:10] <micges_work> surely
[16:07:39] <christel> [Global Notice] Hi all, we're going to need to restart a few servers due to memory issues, this will cause slight disturbance for a few minutes and about 3500 users will be affected.
