[00:25:55] <tom3p> woohoo I got an AsciiSTL object in the vismach. 1st it was hidden inside the frame, then it was outside field of vision... finally got it by the ears!
[00:26:18] <tom3p> you give it a file spec (path & fname )

[00:32:17] <L33TG33KG34R> gah!, it happened again. I re did the spline, deleted the path mate and yet as soon as I press the save button the (-) goes away.

[00:42:01] <l0st1nsp4c3> anybody got a good feed rate/spindle rpm/material calculator?
[00:42:12] <elmo40> didn't you ask that earlier?
[00:43:26] <elmo40> what kind of tooling?
[00:43:37] <elmo40> usually the supplier will give you suggestions.
[00:43:41] <elmo40> then push it from there
[00:43:49] <elmo40> when they break, let off a little ;)
[00:44:03] <elmo40> L33TG33KG34R: did you mate the slot with the pin yet?

[00:55:45] <L33TG33KG34R> elmo40, yeah, but it stopped moving
[00:56:03] <L33TG33KG34R> I mean that "(-)" went away as soon as I save on one of the slots
[00:59:45] <L33TG33KG34R> could it be because I am using a copy of a slot?
[00:59:56] <elmo40> it is all in the Mate
[01:00:05] <elmo40> depends on how you mate the part.
[01:00:10] <elmo40> which version are you using?
[01:00:57] -!- scanf [scanf!~scanf@unaffiliated/scanf] has joined #emc
[01:02:47] <elmo40> is the slot wider then the pin? same size?
[01:04:51] <elmo40> you want the pin from the arm in the slot? and the pin on the bracket in the slot of the arm?
[01:05:20] <L33TG33KG34R> yes
[01:05:25] <L33TG33KG34R> version, 2011
[01:05:33] <L33TG33KG34R> slot is the same width as the pin
[01:06:11] <L33TG33KG34R> its when I move the slot back to its retracted state and save, I can no longer move it and the (-) sign disappears

[01:11:11] <L33TG33KG34R> not yet. I want to figure it out first
[01:11:22] <L33TG33KG34R> and plus its not finished yet
[01:18:32] <elmo40> make it Float
[01:27:24] <L33TG33KG34R> how?
[01:27:33] <L33TG33KG34R> what do you mean by "Float"?
[01:27:33] <elmo40> ok, give this a try.
[01:27:39] <elmo40> care to accept a dcc?
[01:28:46] <L33TG33KG34R> yes...
[01:29:00] <elmo40> did you get the file?
[01:29:16] <L33TG33KG34R> I am missing all the parts. :/
[01:31:44] <elmo40> lol... forgot the parts. let me make a zip file
[01:32:07] -!- El_Matarife has quit [Quit: Nettalk6 - www.ntalk.de]

[01:39:21] <L33TG33KG34R> please resend
[01:39:23] <elmo40> I don't know if SW can slide parts on slots that have more then one direction. i.e. not a straight line.
[01:39:24] <L33TG33KG34R> sorry
[01:40:06] <L33TG33KG34R> it can if the slot is a "path"

[13:18:12] <L33TG33KG34R> JT-Shop, so what does it mean when a component is "fully defined"?
[13:21:20] <Loetmichel> anyone here with knowledge in electronic cmponents? Capacitor or Varistor? -> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=12043
[13:21:29] <Loetmichel> and: datasheet aviable?
[13:22:03] * Loetmichel doesent find anything useful with the markings on the2 orange discs
[13:22:23] <awallin_> I would guess varistors for overvoltage protection?
[13:23:09] -!- L84Supper [L84Supper!~ly@unaffiliated/l84supper] has joined #emc
[13:24:36] <skunkworks_> awallin_: any progress on the rep-rap?
[13:26:02] * Loetmichel s company had build the filter boxes a long time ago... Loetmichel is asked to build some of these boxes... and cant find ANY information/documentation...
[13:26:11] <Loetmichel> so much for Iso 9001
[13:26:13] <Loetmichel> ;-)
[13:26:43] <awallin_> skunkworks_: not really. would need to track down problem with lost steps, or switch to servos. then would need to find or write software for proper reprap g-code generation. skeinforge isn't exactly ideal or easy to grok
[13:26:46] <JT-Shop> "fully defined" means it can't be moved in any direction
[13:30:05] <pcw_home> Loetmichel: .01 uF 2500V capacitors
[13:31:12] <skunkworks_> awallin_: ah. did you see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKjKfyxD79E
[13:31:19] <skunkworks_> I like the descrption.
[13:31:24] <pcw_home> sorry 250 VAC
[13:32:38] <awallin_> skunkworks_: is that pyvcp on the right of AXIS, or the newer gladevcp?
[13:32:45] <awallin_> nice speed on the reprap in that video
[13:32:49] <L33TG33KG34R> The bottom one moves but the top one doesn't. the parts have been created eually or atleast thats what I see

[14:29:55] <cradek> there might be extra dependencies it needs to install. He really REALLY should hook to the net and run the full updates.
[14:30:05] <jthornton> thanks, I'm trying to reproduce that here just to see
[14:30:23] <jthornton> he doesn't have a net connection anywhere near the machine
[14:30:57] <cradek> in that case it's often easier to move the machine than not, if you need the updates

[16:14:31] <Connor> or do they wait a bit longer till after it's in the warehouse ?

[16:52:54] <IchGuckLive> Hi all around the World
[17:03:07] <Connor> jdhNC: Just got my notification that mine passed it's inspection and is on the sea.
[17:03:29] <Connor> They say it will reach the PA facility approximately 6/24/11
[17:04:43] <jdhNC> and ship?
[17:04:46] <jdhNC> we estimate delivery to our PA facility approximately 07/01/2011.
[17:05:00] <Connor> Dear Mr. Huddleston,   We are writing to inform you that your G0704 Drill/Mill has passed our quality control inspections and is currently on the sea.  Without delays due to US Customs processing time, we estimate delivery to our PA facility approximately 06/24/2011.  Once received, your order will be processed promptly and shipped to arrive in approximately 3-5 business days.  
[17:06:05] <jdhNC> guess they have two ships?
[17:06:11] <jdhNC> or they just make up random shit?
[17:06:12] <IchGuckLive> i finished today the 4th master Master mahine ,and im glatt to keep ale costs below 250Euros
[17:06:19] <Connor> Possibly. Who sent yours ?
[17:06:31] <Connor> Mine was sent by Catherine Grizzly Industrial Inc. EN#600165
[17:06:31] <jdhNC> Catherine
[17:07:03] <archivist_emc> ships! just space in a container more like
[17:07:23] <IchGuckLive> i will try to load some pictres
[17:07:25] <jdhNC> containers on different ships
[17:07:35] <archivist_emc> far more likely
[17:08:04] <Connor> Who knows. They have 80 of them inbound and last check they said 46 spoken for.
[17:08:48] <Connor> jdhNC: We'll program end up getting ours about the same time.. within a week or so of each other.. your in NC and I'm in TN.. so.. that makes sense.
[17:09:08] <jdhNC> wonder what port they use, the ship will pass within 30 miles of here
[17:09:22] <Connor> Miami probably.
[17:09:34] <jdhNC> long drive
[17:09:48] <tom3p> IcGuckLive, are you setting up several machines for a class? what is the subject taught & what is the level?

[17:11:03] <Connor> Now that's just... um.. sad.

[19:01:31] <Connor> I would take some MDF slightly bigger than the PCB, and Surface a pocket in it for the PCB to go in.
[19:01:44] <Connor> and then use clips to hold it in place.
[19:02:12] <skunkworks_> try double sided carpet tape. (or vaccum)
[19:02:42] <skunkworks_> Mine have been done using a vaccum table and they work pretty good.
[19:03:20] <Connor> I really wish I had made the machine separate from the enclosure.. the enclosure is so heavy that it deforms to the shape of the table it's setting on... and thus, that translates through to the spoilboard that's screwed down..
[19:04:31] <Connor> Biggest issue is trying to figure out how many passes to make it take and tunning the pcb-to-gcode program.

[19:29:37] <mhaberler> iocontrol and the task io interface basically implodes to manipulating the tool table
[19:29:40] <tom3p> jthornton, thx

[20:04:55] <mhaberler> you arent talking to me, right?
[20:05:07] <cradek> yk2, asking about a robot

[20:06:17] <mhaberler> yes

[20:06:41] <cradek> right
[20:06:58] <cradek> well, tool changes aren't queued in the interplist
[20:07:09] <cradek> so possibly it could be there anyway?
[20:07:13] <cradek> I haven't thought this through
[20:07:35] <mhaberler> hm, potentially - now that you say it
[20:07:51] <mhaberler> I'll sleep over it
[20:08:07] <mhaberler> it would be great to have all that stuff in a single place
[20:08:56] <mhaberler> I'm not concened about that anymore; what I am concerned about is removing the tooltable array from NML (size limits etc)
[20:08:58] <cradek> currently we have "swap with pocket 0" and "don't do anything" as the two behaviors. I have to wonder what else is needed, and how it could be made flexible enough.
[20:09:22] <mhaberler> dont worry.. these are already Pyhon subs in the interpreter ;-)
[20:09:29] <cradek> yes it would be awesome to be rid of that size limit
[20:10:08] <mhaberler> probably I need some array accessor in case a a UI or somesuch needs something else that tooltable{0}
[20:10:34] <cradek> is it true that they currently use only the 0 entry?
[20:10:47] <mhaberler> I'm not sure, that's why I'm concerned...
[20:10:52] <cradek> heh
[20:11:45] <mhaberler> btw on a different issue, you recent discussion here on Python 2 end of life and the C API: I delved into boost.python and that already IS p3k compatible
[20:12:15] <mhaberler> besides signifcantly simplifiying a c++/Python module
[20:13:09] <cradek> that wasn't me
[20:13:20] <cradek> I know nothing about p3k, boost, etc
[20:13:31] <cradek> ... except that boost is pronounced "boots"
[20:13:44] <mhaberler> oh, i see.. might have been jepler

[20:25:24] <slime2k> hmm, looks like i must compile my own kernel and rtai modules with smp enabled
[20:25:35] <slime2k> or use ubuntu 8.04
[20:25:50] <skunkworks__> ?
[20:25:51] <slime2k> there are precompiled packages
[20:26:06] <cradek> our ubuntu 10 kernel is smp-enabled
[20:26:15] <skunkworks__> I am pretty sure that the lucid reatime kernel is smp enabled.
[20:26:19] <skunkworks__> heh
[20:26:26] <slime2k> and the rtai modules?
[20:26:43] <cradek> they are built to match the kernel, otherwise they wouldn't work

[20:27:35] <skunkworks__> slime2k: that seems ok...
[20:27:49] <skunkworks__> what kind of step rate are you looking for?
[20:27:50] <cradek> that's a fine number for all but the very highest software step generation requirements, I suggest just moving on

[20:31:02] <slime2k> Exercise the computer, run GLX gears, surf the web etc to get some realistic latency numbers.
[20:31:04] <slime2k> I've been getting max numbers of about 3800 for the servo thread and 4050 for the base thread.

[20:35:28] <cradek> what step rate do you need for your machine's max velocity?
[20:35:49] <slime2k> good question

[20:46:49] <slime2k> cradek: i think the 16000 would be enough
[20:47:17] <slime2k> i simply try to understand why they get such tiny values with the atom 330
[20:47:38] <cradek> perhaps the hardware has changed, or a bios setting is different

[20:52:45] <archivist_emc> JT-Shop, he has to learn the inverse time mode or guess his feed rate, currently the trajectory planner has no clue of the radius the tool is at http://www.linuxcnc.org/docview/html/gcode_main.html#sub:G93,-G94:-Set
[20:53:49] <JT-Shop> thanks
[20:54:19] <cradek> if both X and A are moving and he programs F10 in the normal G94 mode, doesn't he get what he want?
[20:54:49] <JT-Shop> I would assume so
[20:55:21] <cradek> but yes in general the solution is G93 as recommended here http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/gcode/overview.html#_g_code_best_practices
[20:55:56] <JT-Shop> thanks guys
[20:56:08] <archivist_emc> I hope the planner knows the radius one day :)
[20:56:37] <cradek> the generalized solution is hard
[20:56:54] <cradek> the special case of having just A along X is a little hard
