#emc | Logs for 2011-06-24

[00:00:07] <andypugh> I wonder how to measure the angle of the P Horn SuperMini boring tools? I have the carbides, but not the holders.
[00:00:19] <DustyDingo> i just have a hard time figuring the ampage and voltage out
[00:00:38] <DustyDingo> there is nothing printed on it and i can't find a datasheet
[00:00:53] <DustyDingo> Howard Ind. 1-19-4100
[00:01:20] <andypugh> Cool tooling system, click the "Film" link here: http://www.phorn.com/products/grooving/

[00:06:26] <andypugh> DustyDingo: Voltage doesn't matter, use the highest voltage that your drive is happy with, assuming it is a current-limiting drive.
[00:06:28] <andypugh> http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=3&ved=0CCoQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fmaelabs.ucsd.edu%2Fmae_ds%2Fstamp%2Fhow%2Fhardware%2Fmotor_stepper%2Fstepper-workshop.pdf&rct=j&q=Howard%201-19-4100&ei=NdQDTojjApOxhQf36bzhDQ&usg=AFQjCNFBMuuemu2bsFQSj--kxzVJ_OvMAg
[00:07:59] <andypugh> That calculates the current from the DC resistance and rated voltage, which seems reasonable. The answer is 160mA (seems unusually low)
[00:09:18] <andypugh> Actually, I can't make the first URL work. This might be better: http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:CLy00J_hD34J:maelabs.ucsd.edu/mae_ds/stamp/how/hardware/motor_stepper/stepper-workshop.pdf+Howard+1-19-4100&hl=en&gl=uk&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEEShO8G_-1ZVuVHvTvkdOf9uSa1hqQScYMI17KNKAnY6wO2eEyfrygKJx0DeKrCrzOeEZ9U7lR9Fb6F2GgcxaEtWxvn3am0GsRwREmnagDY-W0d05mR1JyiSUXkzuMRBJrITtKI1n&sig=AHIEtbRsl8Mk_xkMNkuiZ8ZYnuTmy0POVQ

[04:56:30] <aitalmac> Can i use the same sensor for homing and minimum limit?
[04:56:35] <aitalmac> how do i do it?
[04:57:06] <aitalmac> sorry i found it
[04:57:10] <aitalmac> :)
[04:59:19] <aitalmac> but there is a problem if i manually move on the sensor, the machine will shutdown, so how can i move out of the limit?
[04:59:38] <aitalmac> is there a way to just stop the machine on limit and not turn it off?
[05:25:24] <aitalmac> i have HOME_IGNORE_LIMITS = YES
[05:25:46] <aitalmac> but i get joint 0 on limit switch error
[05:25:49] <aitalmac> when i try to home
[05:26:11] <aitalmac> then i can't start the machine
[05:26:18] <aitalmac> untill i move out from the sensot
[05:26:20] <aitalmac> untill i move out from the sensor
[05:26:50] <aitalmac> I have to move the sensor by hand

[09:24:03] <birdmun> I noticed on the mailing list that someone was asking for a torrent of the most recent livecd. I grabbed the newest and have made a torrent file, but, I am not sure if it will do what I need as I have never shared a torrent before. Any suggestions?
[09:26:28] -!- deed02392 [deed02392!~deed02392@ks37627.kimsufi.com] has joined #emc
[09:27:27] <psha[work]> birdmun: first you have to find tracker
[09:28:07] <birdmun> uTorrent added the openbittorrent tracker when it created the torrent file
[09:29:01] -!- Calyp [Calyp!~Caly@unaffiliated/calyptratus-tzm] has joined #emc
[09:29:22] <psha[work]> you need somebody to test it?
[09:29:26] <birdmun> Please forgive me if I break some unwritten irc rules. It has been ages since I wandered in to one.
[09:29:33] <birdmun> that would be helpful
[09:30:06] <birdmun> I don't know/remember if/how I can send files via irc
[09:30:18] <psha[work]> you may _try_ :)
[09:30:31] <psha[work]> but in most cases it wont work :)
[09:31:27] <psha[work]> openbittorrent support magnet links?
[09:31:33] <psha[work]> then you may just share it
[09:31:58] <birdmun> I am guessing that the mailing list strips attached files. I don't know what a magnet link is. I can look it up though.
[09:32:38] <psha[work]> it's a kind of URL for torrents
[09:32:57] <psha[work]> client connect to tracker with that link, downloads torrent first and then start main process
[09:33:06] <psha[work]> everything is hidden from user
[09:33:44] <birdmun> I just did a search for 'openbittorrent magnet links' and didn't really get anything.
[09:35:02] <psha[work]> We don't have any torrent files, a BitTorrent download CAN NOT be started without a torrent file.
[09:35:12] <psha[work]> quot from OBT
[09:35:22] <psha[work]> so you have to share .torrent file somehow
[09:35:40] <psha[work]> Don't add OBT as the default tracker when torrents are uploaded on your site without our written consent.
[09:35:46] <psha[work]> so OBT is not best choice
[09:37:12] <birdmun> doing some more searching.
[09:47:19] <birdmun> slow going
[09:48:31] <psha[work]> http://publicbt.com/
[09:50:17] <psha[work]> i don't see limitation as in OBT terms
[09:52:14] <psha[work]> birdmun: do you have working emc sim/rt somewhere near you?
[09:52:32] <psha[work]> sim or not - no difference
[09:52:40] <birdmun> not at this time
[09:52:52] <birdmun> just the iso
[09:52:54] <psha[work]> pity... same here but need to test one piece of code...
[09:53:41] <birdmun> I have 2 systems upstairs w/ EMC installed but no hardware outside of that.
[09:55:26] <psha[work]> hardware is needed, even simulator will suffice
[09:56:32] <birdmun> They aren't plugged in and have no mouse/monitor/keyboard. No hardware. :P
[09:57:06] <birdmun> I really wish I could be of assistance. It seems my place in life. :)

[10:04:08] <birdmun> 1.4g dells
[10:04:18] <birdmun> I don't know the exact motherboard
[10:04:25] <psha[work]> thx
[10:04:25] <birdmun> I haven't looked at them for some time now.
[10:04:37] <psha[work]> i need to buy new system but atom boards would not fit
[10:06:05] <birdmun> I don't believe the full sized motherboards in the Dell systems would work much better.
[10:06:09] <birdmun> lol
[10:07:27] <psha[work]> atom boards are great when you don't need processing power
[10:07:35] <psha[work]> but i need to handle two camera streams
[10:08:32] <birdmun> wow. you don't ask for much do you? :)

[10:09:11] <birdmun> I feel stupid now. I didn't mean to post that in channel.
[10:09:38] <Loetmichel> hihi
[10:09:45] <jdhNC> we won't look
[10:09:45] <birdmun> I apologize for that. Maybe, just maybe, it is past my bed time.
[10:09:50] <Loetmichel> sh** happens
[10:10:21] <birdmun> its the magnet link for EMC2 livecd I am trying to see if i can share at all.
[10:10:46] <birdmun> I just didn't really mean to splatter it all over the channel.
[10:13:16] <psha[work]> birdmun: nothing bad
[10:13:45] <psha[work]> start seeding please
[10:13:49] <psha[work]> i'll try to download
[10:13:57] <birdmun> I am trying currently.
[10:15:07] <psha[work]> there was one seeder connected but have not shared data :(
[10:15:33] <psha[work]> anyone with at working emc around?
[10:15:36] <psha[work]> for small test?
[10:15:41] <psha[work]> simulator is ok
[10:16:12] <jthornton> sure

[15:12:29] <ktchk> Hi need chinese word for dwell loint and world any one know?
[15:21:24] <jdhNC> loint?
[15:22:13] <ktchk> Joint sorry
[15:24:50] <jdhNC> well, I know no chinese, nor what 'dwell joint' would be.
[15:27:45] <ktchk> I am doing the translation of emc but can noe serch an dictionary for those words meaning of it i thing I know but convert fro joint to world i don't
[15:29:37] -!- ries has quit [Quit: ries]
[15:36:56] <psha> joint and world are types of coordinates
[15:37:48] <psha> world is when you move in 'real' coordinates - jogging X will result in straight "horizontal" move, Y - orthogonal move
[15:38:18] <psha> joint mode is when you are moving one actuator thus movements may be not orthogonal (in simpliest case)
[15:39:37] <ktchk> I can not put that in the translated screen command
[15:40:05] <ktchk> I found the dwell time is same as waiting time

[15:51:54] <tom3p> ktchk no , not like on a ball
[15:52:06] <tom3p> joint is opposed to world
[15:52:27] <tom3p> joint and world are 2 different views of motion
[15:52:35] <tom3p> joint is low level mechanics like elbow and wrist,
[15:52:45] <tom3p> world is axis like hand and foot.
[15:52:46] <tom3p> one or several joints can move one axis
[15:52:51] <tom3p> does that make sense?
[15:55:01] <ktchk> tom3p:
[15:55:32] <ktchk> tom3p: i need the chinese work for that
[15:56:09] <tom3p> trying google translate now, but it does not find the correct idea
[15:56:37] <ktchk> tom3p: need a trade dictionary
[15:56:37] <tom3p> 腕關節支點桿 not correct
[15:57:09] <tom3p> need picture
[15:57:36] <ktchk> tom3p: for joint?
[15:57:58] <tom3p> yep, joint versus axis ( thats joint versus world )
[15:58:40] <tom3p> will draw picture and post
[15:59:38] <ktchk> tom3p: what about the word for the software

[16:08:30] <tom3p> ktchk: just one thing a one time :) 1st the joint versus axis, a picture
[16:08:37] <tom3p> http://synthetica.eng.uci.edu/~mccarthy/CoursePages/Synthesis/Chebychev.gif
[16:08:47] <tom3p> the center of the top bar moves in X
[16:08:57] <tom3p> but LOTS of joints make the motion
[16:09:07] <tom3p> usually, you dont thin about joints
[16:09:18] <tom3p> just about the final motion ( which is simple )
[16:09:31] <tom3p> not the joints ( which might be complicated )
[16:09:47] <tom3p> in a simple machine there is NO difference, no fancy linkages
[16:10:29] <tom3p> so, joints add up to make motion. joints are below axis. axis motion is called 'world'

[16:59:45] <JT-Work> ssi: I have two extra pumps but don't recommend either one if you want much flow
[16:59:54] <JT-Work> one is a little giant pump
[17:00:51] <tom3p> you can get every part for little giants, thats a good thing, and use diverter valve to get low flow ( blows off most back to reservoir )
[17:01:19] <tom3p> and they make chemically safe impellers and housings for different fluids

[17:03:22] <IchGuckLive> Hi all
[17:03:24] <JT-Work> a centrifugal like the one I have now the more you restrict the flow the less power it uses, so it is best not to divert the flow
[17:03:45] <JT-Work> ssi: I keep looking for some beer flavored coolant but no luck
[17:03:47] <ssi> I use a mist unit on my manual mill, but it has recently stopped picking up coolant for some reason

[17:19:31] <skunkworks> my y axis started buzzing/groaning last night. I think I may have to back off the tuning.
[17:20:05] <skunkworks> it is funny - the most it deviated from the path was .00005 - but you could hear it.

[21:38:48] <tom3p> your encoder goes to a hal_encoder which counts the ticks
[21:39:24] <tom3p> the tick get converted to a percentage , a float from 0 to 1.0 ( soemthing you must invent in hal foo )
[21:39:56] <tom3p> the 0-1 value is connected to the 'adaptive-feedrate-override' mentioned in the article above
[21:41:10] <jims_> Thanks, I'm going to check the article out.
[21:41:43] <jims_> It looks like what I am looking for.
[21:42:43] <tom3p> read here too ( not adaptive, maybe better for you ) http://www.mail-archive.com/emc-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg00861.html
[21:42:59] <tom3p> just uses halui
[21:44:18] <jims_> As a separate item I want a second rotary switch to modify a g code parametric variable during the program execution. Is this even possible?

[21:51:37] <tom3p> ok, weave welding... use a sine generator and chg the amplitude of the sine , run the x axis OUTSIDE of emc ( thru hal ) and you gets the weave girl, now aint that pretty?
[21:51:49] <tom3p> lemme find the doc on emc hal weave

[21:57:00] <tom3p> haha you gonna have to do soe of that yourself i found the pdf , but dont know how to paste it anywhere
[21:57:13] <jims_> I was thinking that maybe I could poll an input during execution and conditionally vary the width value during program execution.
[22:00:00] <tom3p> i suspect you can use the square wave output of the siggen, iirc it has a dwell for the other axis, which is in a way, a dwell proportional to the width
[22:00:25] <tom3p> and iirc you can scale each x&y or the square wave.. man siggen
