[06:03:00] <jts> Hi, I am trying to run glade but I get a series of errors like the following:
[06:03:02] <jts> (glade:1894): GladeUI-WARNING **: No icon named 'widget-gtk-sizegroup' was found for object class 'GtkSizeGroup'.
[06:03:14] <jts> Does anyone know what might cause that?
[06:04:35] <psha[work]> errors or warnings?
[06:05:34] <jts> Sorry, I guess the may be warnings
[06:05:48] <jts> This is the first time I have ever tried to run glade
[06:05:54] <psha[work]> probably you've created that .ui file on more recent version of glade/gtk and using widget not available in older one
[06:05:57] <psha[work]> but that's only guess
[06:06:33] <jts> The app comes up but I am not finding the EMC specific widjets that the docs refer to
[06:07:15] <psha[work]> are you opening it with glade or running it with gladevcp?
[06:07:17] <jts> I get the same messages if I enter just glade without a ui
[06:07:31] <jts> I type glade in a terminal

[06:08:19] <psha[work]> do you have 2.5 installed?
[06:09:47] <jts> AXIS 2.4.6
[06:10:57] <psha[work]> gladevcp is available since 2.5
[06:11:18] <jts> OH OK no wonder

[08:06:13] <pingufan> Hello, is this the former emc2 irc?
[08:08:48] <pingufan> I have a question on AXIS. There is a button [M1 ||] which I never used. What I want is to pause the CNC program at a specific point because I must then change the fixating of the workpiece. I inserted M1 into my program. Must the button be clicked or unclicked to activate M1 pausing?
[08:09:30] <pingufan> A little text pops up when I move the cursor over it, but I cannot read it. Too small.

[08:26:44] -!- bill_ [bill_!bill@cloudburst.xmission.com] has joined #linuxcnc
[08:27:55] <pingufan> Thanks for your answer. I cannot try, as the program is already milling/runnung. I ~ 1 hour the M1 command will be reached, then emc2 MUST pause.
[08:28:25] <pingufan> For that: Must the icon-button in the AXIS interface be clicked (appear pressed) or not?
[08:28:53] <pingufan> I cannot read the appearing thext when the mouse is moved over the button. too small.
[08:29:17] <|n0b0dy|> oic.. if you click it now... while its running... it will pause it
[08:30:01] <|n0b0dy|> then later and your ready... one of the buttson will step line by line... and then press play to resume
[08:30:11] <|n0b0dy|> i think if you unpause it will start running again
[08:30:18] <|n0b0dy|> but it's been a while
[08:30:31] <|n0b0dy|> make note of the gcode line too case you need to go back :D
[08:34:50] <pingufan> Thank you. The worst thing would be that the mill continues and I could not change the fixature of the workpiece. You can imagine what would happen...

[16:18:22] <JT-mobile> if you have a 1000 line encoder what is the maximum rpm at 2MHz?
[16:19:32] -!- GoSebGo [GoSebGo!~Seb@] has joined #linuxcnc
[16:19:55] <jdhNC> 500?
[16:20:15] <jdhNC> I don't suppose this is multiple choice.
[16:21:35] <Connor> Kinda depends on the encoder.. Is it quadrature encoder with both A & B being triggered in rise/fall ? I.E. 4 counts per line.
[16:21:50] <JT-mobile> yes
[16:22:01] <Connor> so, 4000 ticks per revolution.
[16:22:10] <JT-mobile> yep
[16:22:30] <jdhNC> 1000 lines at 500rpm is 2mhz
[16:23:16] <Jymmm> JT-mobile: FWIW Most surgical centers now have wifi, so you can bring a laptop and watch netflix or dvd or whatever.
[16:23:50] <awallin> jdhNC: are you sure about that 500rpm ? :|
[16:24:10] <JT-mobile> I was working on the laptop earlier but the wifi is borked on it
[16:24:12] <Connor> 500RPS
[16:24:22] <Jymmm> JT-mobile: DOH
[16:24:41] <Connor> 1 Mhz is 1 million Cycles a second.
[16:24:49] <JT-mobile> that makes a big difference
[16:25:08] <Connor> Need to know how many cycles it takes to read a tick.
[16:25:11] <awallin> 500rps is better. at 1000lines/rev in 4x mode I can agree that it gives 2MHz. 500rps is 30krpm.

[16:43:45] <mhaberler> use the value in the adjustment
[16:43:52] <Gromits> The point is that when Axis comes up I want a default value
[16:44:06] <Gromits> I tried setting the value in the adjustment, but nothing happens
[16:44:27] <Gromits> I also hand edited the file to set the value in the adjustment to no avail
[16:44:48] <mhaberler> value last, you mean? that old bug in gladexml?
[16:44:50] <Gromits> then I saw your post in the forum a while back hence, trying the on_realize thing

[16:45:32] <mhaberler> the order of attributes is wrong as it comes out of glade
[16:45:50] <mhaberler> on spinbutton, I think; but I guess this is unrelated

[17:13:15] <Gromits> by the way, I ultimately want to try your suggestion about using on_destroy to save the value and reload. Just working my way up to that :-)
[17:15:15] <mhaberler> yes, thats very convenient
[17:15:56] <mhaberler> looks ok - re update: what doesnt work: screen update, hal pin update, both, neither?

[18:46:19] <cncjerry> hello, it's been a while since I was on here. don't know if anyone can help on this one. I am using standard G1/G2 arcs and they seem to have very slight faceting.
[18:46:35] <cncjerry> is there a way to increase the interpolation of EMC2 for Arcs?
[18:47:08] <cncjerry> I could force my CAD/CAM system to output xy moves but the files would get huge.
[18:48:02] <cncjerry> before you ask, I believe my servo and pully setup give me 1/12000 resolution.
[18:51:20] <syyl_ws> is there g64 active?
[18:53:04] <cncjerry> refresh me on G64.
[18:54:01] <syyl_ws> http://www.linuxcnc.org/docview/html/gcode.html
[18:54:12] <cncjerry> isn't that something like exact stop? and wouldn't that stop at the end of the arc?
[18:55:04] <cncjerry> the faceting I am seeing is around the arc. the arcs reverse and are tangent. I don't see anything unusual at that point where the come together except very slight backlash.
[19:01:25] <archivist> cncjerry, you have backlash?
[19:02:35] -!- mhaberler has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
[19:02:52] <cncjerry> slight backlash, like around .001
[19:05:53] <cncjerry> also, the arc in question is a G1. I don't see it on a G2, go figure.
[19:06:50] <archivist> ah see source of the arc :)
[19:07:17] -!- isssy [isssy!WebseitenU@78-83-54-41.spectrumnet.bg] has joined #linuxcnc
[19:07:49] <cncjerry> I meant G2 vs G3
[19:08:50] <cncjerry> so it is on G2 but not G3. The g2 arc radius is .5", the following arc is roughly .1875
[19:09:44] <cncjerry> I'll play with the G64 to see if it helps. I was mostly wondering if there was an overall arc interpolation param that might be causing the problem.

[19:28:47] <cradek> arcs of different radii will have different apparent feeds on the outside vs inside, and if the arc radius is near the cutter radius this effect can be extreme
[19:29:33] <cradek> so my wild-ass guess is you are seeing machining marks and misinterpreting them as linear interpolation
[19:30:06] -!- isssy has quit [Ping timeout: 265 seconds]
[19:30:18] -!- sirhoax has quit [Quit: 2nd.class.freedoms]
[19:30:18] <cradek> replace 'arcs of different radii' with 'arcs'
[19:30:23] <cradek> that was probably clear as mud
[19:33:13] <archivist> I agree about machining artifacts (resonance, aliasing of cutter rpm with resolution of the drive/machine stiction/machinestiffness) looking like a software error
[19:33:40] <archivist> also as clear as mud
[19:34:47] <cradek> .1875 is a pretty tiny arc, so I'm assuming a tiny flexible tool too. I think there's likely to be an unexpected apparent feed on the side you want to keep and you might be able to fix it by simply adjusting the feed for that arc
[19:35:25] <cradek> many cam packages adjust arc feeds (using their knowledge of which side you want to keep, which is not part of gcode) for this reason
[19:36:38] <archivist> I would expect to see tool bending with tiny tools, that also effects finish
[19:37:13] <cradek> too bad he's disappeared
[19:39:12] <archivist> and another when he wakes up is climb v conventional milling giving different finish
[19:39:39] <cradek> you bet

[21:25:17] <cncjerry> cradek et al. I'm back. had to run out. I cant take an effective picture because the facets are so light. They look exactly like what you would get if instead of using g2/g3 you set your cam program to do successive G1 moves with a high interpolation setting.
[21:26:09] <cncjerry> by interpolation, as in catia, I can say something like .01 for maching tolerance and it will leave big facets vs .0001 and you get small (without circular interpolation).
[21:26:58] <archivist> cncjerry, ive seen lines like that which are resonance/tool vibration problems
[21:27:25] <cncjerry> in this case, the outside radius of the part has very, very light facets. also, I am running a finish pass with a reverse spring pass. so it does climb once and then returns.
[21:27:58] <cncjerry> I thought resonance and I've seen that but they are more like a banboo fence kind of look.
[21:28:13] -!- bjam28 has quit [Quit: Page closed]
[21:29:00] <cncjerry> another wierd thing is that the facets are symetrical on opposite sides of the peak where it moves from x+ to x- if you follow me.
[21:29:00] <archivist> depends on spindle speed and tool helix there are magic speeds where it can be a line
[21:29:50] <archivist> that can be backlash/machine spring/stiction
[21:29:58] <cncjerry> these facets are about an 1/8" long. they arent true facets, more like non-smooth small arcs.
[21:30:39] <cncjerry> I'm not worried about them. by the time the tumbler is done with them nobody will know.
[21:30:40] <archivist> is the tool grabbing and taking a bite
[21:31:34] <cncjerry> it is brass so it could be but the facets are too regular. using flood coolant, about 3000rpm and 5ipm for finish.
[21:32:58] <cncjerry> now I am wondering if maybe something is stuck on the timing belt. so that when it comes around or hits a tooth it joggles the machine.
[21:33:06] <cncjerry> on one of the axis.
[21:33:29] <cncjerry> and btw, I remember seeing the same on aluminum.
[21:33:47] <archivist> possible, you can measure that and check
[21:34:08] <cncjerry> I am using the old 2.3 version of emc since I had modified AXIS so much
[21:34:20] <cradek> did you understand what I said about apparent feed on small arcs?
[21:34:22] <cncjerry> I am going to make sure it is in constant velocity mode
[21:34:49] <cncjerry> yes, my software allows me to set slowdown rates for different corners as well as arc size, etc

[22:18:03] <Loetmichel> and taht is also the reason fopr the bend in the flat end
[22:18:05] <Loetmichel> for
[22:18:35] <tom3p> the skin tenses the frame making it strong

[22:22:20] <mhaberler> the HAL widgets *are* restored provied you state so in the ini descriptor; either all or selectively. It's all there and documented..

[22:43:41] <cncjerry> this is the faceted outside edge, don't know if you can tell.
[22:44:01] <syyl> from that picture
[22:44:05] <syyl> i cant tell anything ;)

[22:45:44] <cncjerry> the problem I am having is that I have very light facets on outside arc's opposed to inside. The problem is in G2 vs G3, I think.

[22:48:21] <sirhoax> moment of truth.
[22:48:23] <sirhoax> ;-q
[22:49:48] * sirhoax turns on cnc-controller
[22:50:14] * Jymmm grabs the fire extinguisher!!!
[22:50:18] <syyl> first time?
[22:50:32] <sirhoax> yea pop'n the emc cherry on this thing.
[22:50:32] <syyl> magic blue smoke?
[22:50:35] <Jymmm> No, I've stolen them beofre =)
[22:50:47] <sirhoax> it worked on the livecd
[22:50:49] <sirhoax> heh.
[22:51:04] <sirhoax> no smoke plez!
[22:51:08] * Jymmm hands a bag of marshmellows to sirhoax
[22:51:24] <Jymmm> sirhoax: got Skewer?
[22:51:27] <skunkworks_> cncjerry: I had something recently on one part I was doing.. I ended up finding out the cutter dullness/ feed / rpm was causing it. (I only saw it on that one part - nothing else)
[22:51:40] <syyl> make the best of it, even if it burns out?
[22:52:03] <syyl> ah, and another nonsenseproject

[22:52:41] <syyl> dont offend me ;)
[22:52:49] <sirhoax> is that what you call your cnc?
[22:52:59] <sirhoax> heh. mine does a lot of destroying. also.

[22:54:52] <sirhoax> theres no backdoor on this thing? because i'm one paranoid mofo.
[22:54:57] <Jymmm> syyl: you going to add lighting to them?
[22:55:00] <syyl> jep
[22:55:04] <syyl> in the endcaps
[22:55:18] <Jymmm> syyl: Be sure to be selective with the diffuser material
[22:55:36] <Jymmm> syyl: Sometimes the simplest of things work best.
[22:55:48] <Jymmm> syyl: plain old copy paper as example.
[22:55:53] <syyl> ah
[22:55:55] <syyl> good idea
[22:56:02] <Jymmm> syyl: wax paper, butcher paper, etc.
[22:56:08] <syyl> i thought of some opaque plastic
[22:56:10] <syyl> like acetal
[22:56:24] <Jymmm> syyl: velium is too expensive and doesn't difuse the light all that well
[22:56:39] <syyl> i will try it, thanks for the advice
[22:56:54] <Gromits> Any idea what this error means?
[22:56:55] <Jymmm> syyl: just layer copy paper till you get the look you want
[22:56:56] * syyl takes a note
[22:56:58] <archivist> cncjerry, cant see really pic is too small and left hand is burnt out

[22:57:20] <Gromits> I don't have an object with this width/height, yet I get this everytime...
[22:57:51] <Jymmm> syyl: Also, cut strips of copy paper and spray glue n other paper, gives a two tine effect
[22:57:54] <Jymmm> two tone
[22:58:13] <Jymmm> syyl: crinkling paper sometmes works too
[22:58:46] <syyl> i can see that that might give a cool effect
[22:58:49] <Jymmm> syyl: Also, paper seperated by a cm or so helps big time
[22:59:01] <Jymmm> for even distribution
[22:59:52] <syyl> a cm? i thought you are a inch-guy ;)
[23:00:05] <Jymmm> syyl: save that protective film you have overthem in the photo, might give a neat effect
[23:00:36] <Jymmm> i try
[23:01:08] <syyl> ok, some good ideas, i am going to try
[23:01:11] <syyl> but now

[23:02:01] <Gromits> I can't seem to get this right. I still get that error about window being unexpectedly destroyed... Here is .py: http://pastebin.com/FWVwciEk here is error: http://pastebin.com/XgraTEbk
[23:02:20] -!- syyl has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[23:04:25] <cncjerry> I have another string of parts, four in a line, that use the same code. They all have light facets on the outside arc and none on the inside. I've used other cutters, etc. The facets are identical on the four parts even though they are offset by 1.5 inches. So it is in the software.
[23:04:50] <cncjerry> I cant figure it out. I am going to play with G64 and exact vs continuous.
[23:05:24] <archivist> thaat conclusion is not implied by the offset at all
[23:06:06] <cncjerry> well, I say it is in the software but who knows. since the parts are offset by 1.5 inches, you would think if there was a jam or something in the axis drive, that the results would be different, no?
[23:06:23] <archivist> if you dwell at that point you will get a mark
[23:06:32] <cncjerry> no dwell.
[23:06:47] <cncjerry> it looks like it is running very smoothly when I watch it.
[23:07:31] <archivist> if it is on the 90/180/when a direction changes and there is any spring/stiction/backlash you will get a mark
[23:07:47] -!- sirhoax has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[23:08:18] <cncjerry> it could be something to do with running so slow. The mill is gear for optimal cutting at 60ipm. and I have a very slight mark at the axis change as you point out.
[23:08:42] <Gromits> need to leave, will check back in later or tomorrow...
[23:09:17] <cncjerry> I didn't mean to take a shot at emc, by software it could be anything, maybe a repeating interupt, mouse move, etc while it is cutting.

[23:10:09] <cncjerry> maybe it is taking a straight line from the two points on the arc in order to hit a certain speed under continuous cutting (G64)?
[23:12:19] <archivist> may I remind you of <cradek> g2 and g3 arcs are not ever split up into lines in linuxcnc
[23:12:19] <archivist> <cradek> also this will have nothing to do with g64
[23:14:54] <cncjerry> got it
[23:15:59] -!- Tom_itx [Tom_itx!~Tl@unaffiliated/toml/x-013812] has joined #linuxcnc
[23:16:05] <cncjerry> the other thing is that the facet is really not a line, it is almost like the arc was offset by .0001 or less and then put back on the next facet. so the facet is a discontinuity in the arc not an arc made up of straight lines.
[23:17:37] <cncjerry> maybe I should upgrade emc? I am running on the old 2.3(?) version.
[23:18:29] <cncjerry> wasnt there a lot of changes in the drive in 2.4? I remember something about continuous cut or constant velocity being reworked or tweaked in 2.4
