#emc | Logs for 2007-05-28

[00:29:42] <JymmmEMC> jmkasunich: back from dimmer yet?
[00:32:09] <JymmmEMC> jmkasunich: I have a datalogging DMM that uses rs-232. I'm not sure of the protocol it uses (will check later), but is it possible to feed that into EMC/hal via the serial port and compare it againest command moves?
[00:32:52] <jmkasunich> anything is possible
[00:33:05] <jmkasunich> a much smaller set of things are practical
[00:33:11] <jmkasunich> how is the DMM going to measure position?
[00:33:40] <JymmmEMC> I was thinking of just using clock tips
[00:33:42] <JymmmEMC> tics
[00:34:02] <jmkasunich> huh?
[00:35:02] <JymmmEMC> Have emc timestamp when it does commanded moves. Have HAL (I think) create a log of amperage again with timestampts then compare the two
[00:35:57] <JymmmEMC> Maybe not real time, but in seconds since power on.
[00:39:04] <JymmmEMC> BBL, getting ready for work.
[00:49:02] <cradek> whee, my '93 yggdrasil linux CD is installing
[00:49:09] <cradek> I found a suitable machine for it
[00:56:10] <jmkasunich> at an antique dealer?
[00:57:23] <eric_1> what machine did you end up getting John?
[00:57:45] <jmkasunich> who? me?
[00:57:53] <eric_1> yes
[00:58:12] <jmkasunich> you mean the PC I was buying a few weeks back? Intel E6600
[00:58:20] <eric_1> yeah
[01:10:53] <cradek> jmkasunich: (in the basement)
[01:19:14] <danielbr> hello, anyone can say what is different in the new g41.1, i can not find any doc about
[01:20:58] <jepler> danielbr: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/gcode/main/#516
[01:21:01] <jepler> bbl
[01:21:14] <danielbr> thanks
[01:26:04] <danielbr> as i can understand g41.1 is for use in a lathe, correct?
[01:41:37] <jepler> danielbr: g41.1 is like g41, but the tool radius comes from the program instead of from the tool table. it should be useful on lathe and mill
[01:42:47] <danielbr> ok
[01:43:04] <jepler> danielbr: specifying L is probably only useful on a lathe -- the default, L0, is a mill-type tool
[01:44:48] <danielbr> jepler: any chance for some smart guy like you or cradek look at my problem with g41 and g1 blocks with concaves angles?
[01:45:15] <jepler> danielbr: not me -- I don't understand that code in the slightest
[01:45:39] <danielbr> ok
[01:47:48] <danielbr> i'll try use apt for solve my problem but that is not the better choice
[01:51:40] <tomp> danielbr: can you pastebin (http://pastebin.ca) a simple example that shows the problem? I cannot solve it, but you would be documenting the cause & result. Add pictures with http://imagebin.org or hand sketches with http://www.drawblog.com
[01:52:17] <danielbr> hello tomp
[01:52:22] <tomp> yo
[01:53:59] <danielbr> http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.emc.devel/443
[01:54:21] <danielbr> i need post again that pictures
[01:54:44] <danielbr> some examples code in that link
[01:55:26] <danielbr> i dont have that picture in this machine for post now
[01:58:30] <tomp> danielbr: the path is not 'tangential', it is composed of linear moves. Do you want the control to autoinsert blends according to tool description ( radius and orientation )?
[01:59:13] <danielbr> yes, this is like Fagor and all other cnc controler from Italy work
[02:00:28] <danielbr> now with the nist way for g41 is very hard for use tool diameter comp
