[00:13:49] <morfic> cradek: you know you wanna get sucked into it
[00:15:05] <morfic> cradek: this whole discussion is about K not being tpi or taper, but the hypotenuse between the two? you can adjust any post processor to do it that way if that's how it works
[00:36:33] <jepler-> jepler- is now known as jepler
[00:52:23] <CIA-5> EMC: 03jepler 07master * rc17e070fbf02 10/src/configure.in: Linux 2.6.34+ moved utsrelease.h
[03:19:26] <cradek> morfic: sure - even if the postprocessor can't do trig, you could generate gcode like G33 K[%f / COS[%f]] or whatever you need
[03:32:56] <morfic> cradek: and wrap it in a O loop to simulate a "normal" G76
[03:35:05] <morfic> but bottom line, if i scrap one of our parts because i did not read the docs right and assumed, it's all on me when my boss asked what happened and i go "well, i thought it's like this, but actually it's like that" :)
[13:36:16] <JT-Work_> JT-Work_ is now known as JT-Work
[13:47:55] <CIA-5> EMC: 03jepler 07v2.4_branch * re30574bc5122 10/src/configure.in: Linux 2.6.34+ moved utsrelease.h
[17:35:48] <IchGuckLive> hi all the frame for the pathview in axis is this generatet by vtk?
[17:52:14] <jepler> no. axis uses its own copy of togl and its own wrappers around opengl. (at the time axis was first written, the debian that we were using had bugs its pyopengl package that made it unusable in tkinter programs, or I would have used pyopengl)
[17:53:23] <IchGuckLive> thanks awallin opencamlib is working most part on vtk
[18:13:39] <awallin> vtk is c++ but has python wrappers, it seemed like the easiest way to visualize what ocl does (I tried visual-python, but it is quite restricted)
[18:14:36] <awallin> for a fast machining simulation, the surface representation in the simulation should maybe be quite close (=the same datastructure) as that which is rendered
[18:17:27] <CIA-5> EMC: 03micges 07master * rb5aa9739969c 10/src/emc/usr_intf/axis/scripts/emctop.py: emctop: Show offsets only for existing axes
[22:58:45] <alex_joni> fest at stuart's sounds like soo much fun
