[00:00:15] -!- Nick001-Shop has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:00:56] <Connor> okay, your patch is this one the manual-toolchange-with-tool-length-switch ?
[00:01:15] <mhaberler> that is in master ready to go and actually being used
[00:01:34] <Connor> explain ?
[00:01:36] <mhaberler> the 'patch' (not merged) is http://git.mah.priv.at/gitweb/emc2-dev.git/shortlog/refs/heads/jog-while-paused-preview1
[00:02:13] <mhaberler> supported feature? just build a sim config off master, and run the example ini in there
[00:02:55] -!- hive8 has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[00:03:54] <Connor> Well, the fact that it's under sim is confusing me for one. And for two, I don't understand what your saying config off master. I have a custom config for my machine already.. so.. I'm just trying to figure out what I need to do to add this in.
[00:05:09] <mhaberler> sorry. you need 2.6-pre - either the buildbot packages, or build by pulling the master branch from git
[00:05:17] <Connor> I think I'm running 2.5.2 or so.
[00:05:51] <mhaberler> the remap code is not in there
[00:06:04] -!- r00t-Shed [r00t-Shed!~CNC@cpe-67-249-21-218.twcny.res.rr.com] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:07:01] <andypugh> I don't know of anything that is worse in 2.6 at the moment
[00:07:01] <Connor> yea, I'm just now figuring that out..
[00:07:04] <mhaberler> which is the prerequisite for manual-toolchange-with-tool-length-switch etc
[00:07:23] <Connor> andypugh: You mean that's broken vs 2.5.2 ?
[00:07:36] <andypugh> Yes.
[00:07:37] <mhaberler> thats broken in 2.6 but not in 2.5
[00:09:00] <mhaberler> even the accidental features gene insists on having now work reproducibly ;-)
[00:09:19] <Connor> okay, so the 2.6 has everything 2.5 has and working okay, and maybe some new stuff that isn't done, or that's possibly broke, or is working
[00:09:37] <Connor> I don't want to break anything. :)
[00:10:01] <mhaberler> I am not aware on any major issue in 2.6; I use it mostly

[00:17:41] <tjb1> Anyone order rack gear from Moore Gear?
[00:18:07] <mhaberler> there go my testers ;)
[00:19:08] <Connor> mhaberler: I might be able to use it on my router vs my mill.. No way to do TTS on the router.. and it would need jog and touch off way more than the mill after I get the TTS stuff
[00:19:42] <mhaberler> TTS… stands for..?

[00:22:24] <andypugh> Connor: You can make your own drawbar. I did :-)
[00:23:01] <Connor> Well. I'm using a Bosh Colt router. I might do something different if I ever change out the spindle.

[00:39:48] <r00t4rd3d> i only got 2 of the same size atm
[00:39:57] <r00t4rd3d> but i can scale the image
[00:39:59] <ReadError> well i used the dremel ones for a bit
[00:40:05] <r00t4rd3d> some douche taught me how :)
[00:40:09] <ReadError> til i got my confidence up ;)
[00:40:41] <r00t4rd3d> my router ate through it like it was nothing

[00:53:34] <ReadError> what mill is that Connor?
[00:53:43] <tjb1> G0704
[00:53:47] <Connor> Grizzly G0704
[00:53:52] <tjb1> Its on the first picture :P
[00:54:08] <Loetmichel> *tinker* ... wouldn't it be fun to construckt something the boss couldnt pay my missing sleep... its about 03:00 over here and i have to be @ the company at 08:00....
[00:54:44] <tjb1> Did you make those stepper covers Connor
[00:55:08] <Connor> Yup. Those are the ones I milled about two weeks ago.
[00:56:05] <tjb1> Thought I remembered seeing those

[00:57:44] <Connor> I was thinking of putting something else on the covers.. Like maybe BH0704 or WH0704 (My nick name initials, or my proper name initials.) I don't go by my proper name except in legal stuff..
[00:58:14] <tjb1> Guess your name is WIlliam and you go by Bill?
[00:58:28] <Connor> Correct, except Billy not Bill.
[00:59:04] <tjb1> How much was that chain if you dont mind
[00:59:19] <Connor> Tried to go by "Will" about 15 years ago.. but.. never got use to it. :)
[00:59:35] <Connor> That was left over E-Chain for my router... let me look.. That's been a while.
[01:03:24] <Connor> Having a hard time tracking it down.
[01:03:38] <Connor> I purchased it combined with some couplers in April of 2011
[01:04:14] <tjb1> Where did you get it from?
[01:04:27] -!- GeorgeH has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[01:04:27] <Connor> Ebay seller, direct (not via ebay)
[01:04:58] <tjb1> ah sketchy :)
[01:06:59] <Connor> http://www.ebay.com/sch/miss_my_car/m.html
[01:07:01] <Connor> Nahh..
[01:07:50] <tjb1> Can you buy like 2 40" and patch them together?
[01:08:03] <Connor> Wasn't that sketchy. I've done that with both the E-Chain and Couplers, and my Ballscrews, linear rails and my stppers all for my router.
[01:08:06] <Connor> Yes.
[01:09:00] <Connor> I think I got 25x38 R55 x 1meter length
[01:09:03] <Connor> x 2
[01:09:06] <tjb1> Thanks
[01:09:07] <Connor> 2 of them.
[01:09:10] <Connor> for my router.
[01:09:14] <tjb1> Ill price check when I am closer to being ready
[01:09:29] <jdh> I got some really small stuff
[01:09:40] <tjb1> Ill need somewhere around 16-17' of it
[01:09:45] <jdh> amn
[01:09:48] <jdh> or damn.
[01:09:58] <Connor> dang. For what size machine ?
[01:10:02] <tjb1> 4x8
[01:10:17] <tjb1> but its about 10ft long and 6ft wid
[01:10:19] <Connor> Check linearmotionbearing2008 ebayer too.
[01:10:45] <tjb1> I didnt want to have an exact or very close to 4x8 cutting area and then spend 3 hours trying to get the stock in that area
[01:10:45] <Connor> I only ordered from this China ebayer because they had the couplers I wanted too.
[01:11:10] <tjb1> Go big or go home :)
[01:11:35] <jdh> http://www.ebay.com/itm/110739289334
[01:11:38] <Connor> Also, didn't have the sizes on ebay I was looking for.. but I knew they had to have other sizes.

[01:12:05] <Connor> 10mmx10mm That's SMALL stuff.
[01:12:15] <tjb1> yeah
[01:12:21] <tjb1> Id only get one cable in that haha
[01:12:34] <Connor> I actually did ALLOT of research and found to true manufacture of the E-Chain and got the specifications from them..
[01:12:43] <jdh> you can fit one stepper wire and a limit switch wire easily
[01:13:26] <tjb1> The x axis chain will need to hold 3 home-limit wires
[01:13:32] <tjb1> and 4 axis wires
[01:14:25] <tjb1> 3/4"x3/4" should work
[01:14:28] <tjb1> but it would be tight
[01:17:01] <tjb1> here it is http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/469928_3926380233930_1088240025_o.jpg
[01:17:12] <Connor> Mine is .88" thick by 1.875" wide
[01:17:48] <jdh> it looks pre-sagged in the middle?
[01:19:11] <tjb1> Thats the water table
[01:19:43] -!- andypugh has quit [Quit: andypugh]
[01:22:28] <Connor> Hmm.. having hard time reconciling what I have with what I supposedly ordered.. size that is..
[01:22:30] <tjb1> Are Ahrens rack and pinion drives reversible?
[01:23:01] <jdh> Connor: maybe they used a chinese ruler from dealextreme to measure it.
[01:23:09] <Connor> No..
[01:23:21] <Connor> It's something with the ID vs the OD of the channel.
[01:23:39] <jdh> some of the ads quote inside, some out

[01:24:07] <Connor> I'm starting to think it was 18mm x 37mm ID
[01:24:18] <Connor> that's .7" x 1.45"
[01:24:27] <Connor> let me go check the ID.. brb

[01:26:40] -!- mhaberler has quit [Quit: mhaberler]
[01:29:21] <Connor> Of good grief. one The height is the OD, the width is the ID
[01:30:42] <tjb1> 18mm inside, 37mm outside?
[01:31:47] <Connor> No. It's marked as 18x37.. I think that's the ID
[01:31:58] <Loetmichel> sooo, next PSU casing for the company done... now i should go to bed, get at least 3 hrs sleep... -> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=13376

[01:34:18] <r00t4rd3d> "What if Disney's characters were bad?"
[01:34:22] <Loetmichel> tjb1: that was a plastic "brick" (like for a laptop) from a HP-scanner unfortunally a bit "loud" EMI-wise :-)
[01:34:40] <r00t4rd3d> I need to score some HDP
[01:34:44] <tjb1> Nice
[01:35:21] <Loetmichel> its not the first one
[01:35:39] <Loetmichel> but the company has no CNC. so i make the prototypes at home...
[01:36:15] <Loetmichel> and now the night is a BIT short... its 03:35 over here, at 07:00 the clock will ring...
[01:36:51] <Loetmichel> last week i made this, for an other scanner: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=13367
[01:37:07] <Connor> tjb1: Okay. DJ18 which is their PN for 18x38x1000 R48 (R48 is the Radius). gives total height at the bend of 119mm
[01:37:27] <tjb1> What do you bend it with Loetmichel
[01:37:31] <Connor> tjb1: They sent me drawings if I can find it..
[01:37:35] <Loetmichel> had
[01:37:37] <Loetmichel> hand
[01:37:46] <tjb1> So making a U, its 119mm thick?
[01:37:57] <tjb1> You make some damn straight bends by hand :)
[01:38:08] <Loetmichel> i mill a V-slot about half the seet thickness at the bendings
[01:38:19] <Loetmichel> and then you can bend it by hand and accurately so
[01:38:42] <Loetmichel> ;-)
[01:39:18] <tjb1> Very nice
[01:39:30] -!- WillenCMD [WillenCMD!ae7d0a61@gateway/web/freenode/ip.] has joined #linuxcnc
[01:39:42] <tjb1> Can you use a 5/16 bolt with extrusions in the t slots
[01:40:06] <Connor> tjb1: Correct
[01:40:20] <tjb1> Guessing its pretty tight
[01:40:42] <Connor> 4.68" tall
[01:42:04] <tjb1> Anyone use extrusions? :)
[01:42:14] <Connor> tjb1: For what?
[01:42:19] <Connor> I've used 80/20 for some stuff
[01:42:26] <tjb1> Anything, I need to know if you can get a 5/16 bolt in the t-slots
[01:42:31] <tjb1> It says the gap is .320
[01:42:42] <Connor> which brand ?
[01:42:55] <Connor> and which series ?
[01:43:09] <Connor> If it's 80/20 then it's either 10 or 15 series
[01:43:18] <Connor> 10 being 1" 15 being 1.5"
[01:43:46] <tjb1> Well its T-slots
[01:43:54] <tjb1> but all my extrusions are either 1530 or 3030
[01:44:02] <Connor> okay, that's 15 series.
[01:44:13] <Loetmichel> tjb1: like ma grandma said one: "a lazy man isnt dumb"
[01:44:33] <WillenCMD> does anyone think i could wire both outputs of the mesa 7i39 in parallel to achieve 50v at 10A or no here is a link <http://www.mesanet.com>
[01:44:36] <jdh> why doesn't your company invest in some cnc hardware ?
[01:44:51] <tjb1> Ha, lazy man always finds the easiest way
[01:45:10] <Loetmichel> or another one: "As a worker you can be lazy. You can be Dumb. But both gets you caught!"
[01:45:26] <Loetmichel> jdh: it will
[01:45:28] <Loetmichel> soon
[01:45:44] <Connor> as I recall, you need to use T-Nuts.
[01:45:51] <Loetmichel> we just have got some big oders
[01:45:58] <tjb1> Yes but I am concerned with the bolt I can get through there
[01:46:00] <Connor> I've not tried 5/16 bolt in it.
[01:46:08] <Connor> to bolt together >
[01:46:09] <Connor> ?
[01:46:11] <Loetmichel> so we can pay for a bit of "workshop-upgrade"
[01:46:19] <Connor> or for clamping stuff ?
[01:46:35] <tjb1> To attach the CRS for the linear system
[01:46:59] <tjb1> I am going to make a jig with drill bushings so I dont have to do it on a cnc
[01:46:59] <Connor> CRS ?
[01:47:03] <tjb1> cold rolled steel
[01:47:20] <jdh> WillenCMD: my guess is... no. That's pretty much just a guess though.
[01:47:28] <Connor> Your going to use CRS for linear rails?
[01:47:41] <tjb1> Yeah, its the cncrouterpards setup
[01:48:00] <Connor> I wouldn't use CRS for that.
[01:48:11] <Connor> I would use polished rails..
[01:48:30] <tjb1> ?
[01:48:41] <tjb1> http://www.cncrouterparts.com/extended-linear-carriage-with-abec-7-bearings-p-35.html?cPath=21
[01:49:48] <r00t4rd3d> I used aluminum rails for mine
[01:49:59] <r00t4rd3d> easier to work with
[01:50:03] <r00t4rd3d> or drill
[01:50:04] <Connor> r00t4rd3d: Yours is much smaller too.
[01:50:15] <r00t4rd3d> my mom said it was average
[01:50:19] <Valen> lol
[01:50:28] <Valen> we are looking at rails for our new mill
[01:50:32] <tjb1> This is good
[01:50:33] <tjb1> haha
[01:50:36] <Valen> thinking of using linear profile rail
[01:50:47] <Valen> its not that expensive really
[01:51:00] <tjb1> Linear rails are $0.4 per mm
[01:51:03] <tjb1> Not gonna happen
[01:51:56] <Valen> the ones I was looking at were something like $60 a meter?
[01:52:05] <Valen> rated for 1.5 tonnes ;->
[01:52:22] <Loetmichel> the rails are relatively cheap
[01:52:25] <Connor> tjb1: How long do you need ?
[01:52:33] <Loetmichel> the sleds are the expensive part ;-)
[01:52:38] <tjb1> 10ft
[01:52:45] <Connor> total or per side ?
[01:52:53] -!- GeorgeH has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[01:53:30] <tjb1> per side
[01:53:47] <Connor> THK or supported rail.. but.. 10' per side is allot
[01:53:51] <Valen> HGR15R HG RAIL SIZE 15               $85.00 per meter
[01:53:51] <Valen> HGH15CA Z0C BLOCK HG 15 NARROW BLOCK      $48.00 net each
[01:54:03] <Valen> HGR20R HG RAIL SIZE 20               $90.00 per meter
[01:54:04] <Valen> HGH20CA Z0C BLOCK      HG 20 NARROW BLOCK $55.00 net each
[01:54:51] <tjb1> A lot of people use the CRS setup
[01:56:52] <Loetmichel> i dont like the cold rolled steel mehtod: not really straight, to much ball bearings per sled, to flexible and over-dertermined.
[01:58:02] <Loetmichel> a hardened and precision ground round supported rail and sleds with 6 or 8 ball bearings are much more straight, precise and not more expensive
[01:58:23] <Loetmichel> so, now i WILL go to bed... for three hours

[02:01:05] <Connor> email those people and check on supported rail..
[02:01:56] <tjb1> its $74 for 14"
[02:02:52] <Connor> It's cheaper the more you get..
[02:04:11] <Connor> The other option is to look into linear motion stuff from 80/20 since your using 80/20.

[09:28:12] <mrsun> http://imagebin.org/218075 http://imagebin.org/218076 http://imagebin.org/218078 (the little gray splatter is the cast iron i managed to melt, but atleast it was molten! :P
[09:29:59] <Valen> which grey spatter lol?
[09:30:20] <mrsun> on the last picture, in the middle of the black mess :P
[09:30:22] <Valen> ahh multiple pictures nvm
[09:30:50] <mrsun> tested it with magnet and its magnetic so has to be the cast iron :P
[09:31:25] <mrsun> i like the mod of the furnace but its to high + to narrow for the oil burner
[09:31:38] <mrsun> should make a smaller one that isnt as high and a bit wider
[09:36:55] <Valen> fun fun fun
[09:37:18] <mrsun> strangley the lining still holds up, its made from 1300 degree C furnace cement and vermaculite
[09:37:33] <mrsun> should have melted .. or im just at 1200 - 1250 degrees ...
[09:37:47] <mrsun> dont think it will be enough for casting with it :/
[09:38:31] <mrsun> 1175 - 1290 degrees melting point depending on how much carbon i guess
[09:41:49] <mrsun> 1340 degrees pouring temperature

[10:58:59] <mrsun> now its only uphill from here i hope :P
[11:00:04] <JT-Shop> or downhill depending on how you look at it... I assume getting melted cast iron as the biggest hurdle
[11:02:03] <JT-Shop> is that burner just a home heating oil furnace burner?
[11:02:15] <mrsun> yes i guess you call it that
[11:02:52] <JT-Shop> be like chicken lips around here... no one uses oil furnaces around here
[11:03:31] <mrsun> but they are good =) relights by themselfs etc =)
[11:03:33] <mrsun> love em
[11:03:43] <mrsun> and not as high a roar as the gas burner i have
[11:06:24] -!- micges has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[11:09:16] <mrsun> some more experimentation and hopefully i can up the amount of iron being melted, tho if it takes 40 minutes for 640 grams ... it would take a heck of alot longer for like 2kg :P
[11:09:46] <Valen> depends on how efficent everything is
[11:09:53] <Valen> i'd say probably not drastically longer
[11:10:01] <mrsun> hmm ok =)
[11:10:28] <mrsun> well might be true, as when you finaly get the furnace fully up to temperature that holds alot of stored energy also and not eating as much energy =)
[11:10:52] <mrsun> and with this i might be able to make wootz also!
[11:11:51] <Valen> also you will have the same amount of heat coming out the top of the furnace
[11:21:31] <mrsun> and now i know for a fact that i can do brass and bronze in the furnace also =) thats also cool =)
[11:24:31] <Valen> new tools that are general purpose are always awesome

[15:56:08] <UnderSampled|phn> How do I set how fast G0 goes?
[15:56:38] -!- delkin has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[15:56:45] <Connor> G0 goes Max Velocity of each Axis.
[15:56:58] <Connor> If I recall correctly.
[15:57:12] <Connor> You can use the slider in AXIS to limit the Max Velocity.

[15:59:18] <UnderSampled|phn> Oh
[15:59:35] <Connor> G0 is for Rapids.
[15:59:36] <UnderSampled|phn> Oh, thanks
[16:00:16] <Connor> http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/gcode.html#_g0_rapid_motion_a_id_sec_g0_a
[16:00:50] <Connor> G1 can move the machine the same as G0, but, has the option of having a feed rate specified at the end.
[16:00:57] <Connor> What are you trying to do ?
[16:01:45] <JT-Shop> at the end?
[16:02:40] <Connor> G1 Xnn Ynn Znn Fnnn
[16:02:47] <Connor> Guess it can go anywhere.
[16:03:07] <Connor> He can scroll down from that link and read about G1 too. :)
[16:05:43] <JT-Shop> oh the end of the G code line... it can be anywhere on the line or before the line
[16:07:28] <jdh> UnderSampled: where are you?
[16:08:21] <UnderSampled|phn> NC
[16:08:25] <Connor> UnderSamp@cpe-174-097-224-178.nc.res.rr.com
[16:08:42] <jdh> where in NC? I'm in Wilmington
[16:08:44] <Connor> Was gonna say.. in NC in his house. :)
[16:09:26] <jdh> nc.res is mid/rtp NC?
[16:09:31] <UnderSampled|phn> I was thinking my machine war set too fast, but didn't want to have to go to the config
[16:09:38] <UnderSampled|phn> Cary
[16:10:09] <JT-Shop> use the max velocity slider to slow it down
[16:10:14] <UnderSampled|phn> Ok
[16:11:29] <Loetmichel> re @ home
[16:12:26] <UnderSampled|phn> Now.'m finding that it has more jitters at slower speeds
[16:12:31] <UnderSampled|phn> How do I have the gcode pause automatically?
[16:14:15] <JT-Shop> pause for a time or until you say go?
[16:21:30] <UnderSampled|phn> until I say go
[16:22:25] <JT-Shop> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/m-code.html#_m0_m1_program_pause_a_id_sec_m0_m1_a
[16:23:04] <Loetmichel> just write m01 somewhere in your code where you want to stop for user action

[18:13:49] <gmagno> hey, I just bought a TB6560 driver board and 3x NEMA17 motors. I'm using StepConf Wizard to test the equipment. On the X Axis Configuration menu I do the axis test but with no success. I mean, I can hear that typical sound of a motor rotating, but none of the shafts rotate... Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
[18:14:04] <gmagno> I'm also following this guy procedure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiXjSZ3tIr0
[18:14:37] <gmagno> I can also feel the motors getting a bit hot
[18:15:13] <archivist> getting very warm is ok
[18:15:48] <gmagno> hmm ok
[18:15:52] <archivist> when mounded on the machine the machine acts as a heatsink
[18:15:54] <IchGuckLive> gmagno: put base to 25000
[18:15:58] <archivist> mounted
[18:16:06] <IchGuckLive> put step and space to 5000
[18:16:22] <IchGuckLive> gmagno: and the dir to 20000

[18:16:53] <IchGuckLive> A+A- B+ B-
[18:17:03] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, absolutely!
[18:17:15] <IchGuckLive> i guess you did not modyfy th tb6560
[18:17:37] <IchGuckLive> so put current to 50Percent
[18:17:59] <IchGuckLive> and others to fast and Halfstep
[18:18:28] <IchGuckLive> as the steppers only stall i gues its the motorwirering
[18:18:52] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, erm... I'm using the same current confs, 1/16, 75%current and decay 25%
[18:18:55] <IchGuckLive> you need to disconnect the power and the Parport for Setting the Switches
[18:19:05] <IchGuckLive> Decay 100
[18:19:20] <IchGuckLive> 1/2 halfstep
[18:19:29] -!- UnderSampled|phn has quit [Ping timeout: 265 seconds]
[18:19:52] <IchGuckLive> as i said with all power sdisconnected otherwise it will break the board
[18:20:32] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, :S I'm not disconnecting parport to switch the DIP... fuck!
[18:20:37] <delkin> can you break the board if the parallel port is connected?
[18:20:50] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, not happening anymore
[18:21:01] <gmagno> sry for the f word
[18:21:54] <IchGuckLive> i got 30 education mashines with ZENS board i did F--- alot in the startup
[18:22:33] <IchGuckLive> as the Datasheet Sais only with disconnected Power and parport otherwise the TB will head up
[18:22:37] <gmagno> :D
[18:23:17] <IchGuckLive> no since i modified from Packet nothing since 1year already
[18:23:54] <gmagno> checking the motors wiring once again
[18:24:41] <IchGuckLive> can you disconnect them from the Board and then take a meter to messure up the Ohm
[18:25:19] <archivist> gmagno, set slower acceleration and lower the top speed till you get it running
[18:25:28] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, gonna do that4
[18:27:35] <IchGuckLive> speed is to calculate as max to 100RPM of the steppers and acelleration on 2 Leadscrew Rotation for the start
[18:28:51] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, it's about 3ohm each coil (if I shunt the probes I get 1.2ohm, so I believe it's not bad, right?)
[18:31:24] <IchGuckLive> yes yo do not messhure anything between A+ and the B+,- as the same as A- nothing to B+,-
[18:32:05] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, yup. Both coils are isolated
[18:32:41] <gmagno> I'm going back to the wizard and do those params changes

[18:37:49] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, I'm using max vel: 60mm/s and max acc: 400mm/s/s. What would you suggest?
[18:38:21] <JT-Shop> mm is the easy way out 1+1=2 what is 13/64" - 9/32" quick in your head lol
[18:39:04] <gmagno> interesting, one of my 3 motors is not warm...
[18:39:13] <anonimasu> well, thats -5/64
[18:39:15] <anonimasu> :p
[18:39:26] <JT-Shop> :)
[18:39:40] <IchGuckLive> gmagno: start with 6mm/s
[18:39:46] <mrsun> gmagno, does it stand still most of the time? :)
[18:40:43] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, ok. mrsun the shafts dont turn at all
[18:41:10] <mrsun> oh none is moving and only one motor is not getting hotter ?
[18:41:25] <gmagno> now I don't even hear that typical sound of the motors when I press one of the arros
[18:41:28] <gmagno> arrows*
[18:41:36] <gmagno> mrsun, that is correct
[18:41:40] <mrsun> hmm
[18:41:48] <mrsun> different settings on the driver? :)
[18:41:52] <mrsun> current settings etc
[18:41:55] <gmagno> mrsun, wait it is a bit warm now
[18:42:08] <gmagno> mrsun, same settings
[18:42:28] <mrsun> might be a fluke of nature then .. is it steppers? :)
[18:42:37] <mrsun> they should not get worm when standing still with good drivers =)
[18:42:51] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, ok, if I increase the acc I can hear now the sound
[18:43:24] <gmagno> mrsun, this (http://www.ebay.com/itm/3axis-Nema17-stepper-motor-78oz-in-CNC-kit-3A-driver-board?item=300654822440&cmd=ViewItem&_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D159989555669286571) is the kit I'm using
[18:44:24] <mrsun> Using RC +7414 automatic semi-flow,the current automatic reduce when stepper motor stop to down the heat <- seems it got half current atleast
[18:44:27] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, which acc do you suggest?
[18:44:34] <mrsun> or something similiar
[18:44:48] <mrsun> gmagno, stepper differently mounted then the others ?
[18:44:59] <mrsun> like bigger surface area of the mounting plate or something =)
[18:45:18] <gmagno> mrsun, I checked that. THey are correctly mounted
[18:45:25] <gmagno> motors are really warm now
[18:45:41] <gmagno> specially one of them
[18:45:43] <mrsun> you havent set the current to high for the motors then ? :)
[18:46:15] <gmagno> mrsun, no, I set to 50%
[18:46:35] <gmagno> should I set to 100%??
[18:47:17] <mrsun> gmagno, well how are your steppers connected? . . parallel or serial ? :)
[18:47:19] <gmagno> is it too bad to make this tests with only on motor connected?
[18:47:20] <mrsun> to start with
[18:47:47] <mrsun> ahh its 4 lead motors?
[18:47:50] <mrsun> not 8 :)
[18:47:52] <gmagno> exacly!
[18:48:03] <gmagno> mrsun, it's easy, even for me :D
[18:48:07] <mrsun> then the maximum current is 1.8A ...
[18:48:21] <mrsun> do not know the settings of that board?
[18:48:28] <mrsun> is there a guide ors omething for it? :)
[18:49:19] <gmagno> mrsun, there is, but it is BS... :/ I'm using it just to know how to set the DIP switches
[18:50:00] <mrsun> so you get % of maximum current i guess then, and 50% should be from 3.5A 1.75A for the motor and that should be right
[18:50:07] <gmagno> I mean, there are tables in that document saying what each combination corresponds to in terms of current, decay and resolution
[18:51:10] <Jymmm> Realize that usually the current percentage is typically HOLDING torque
[18:51:35] <Jymmm> when idle
[18:52:08] <IchGuckLive> gmagno: only one motor connected is very bad
[18:52:23] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, hmm ok, not gonna do that then
[18:52:41] <IchGuckLive> the paper that coes with the board does it clear to connect all the motors bevor powerup
[18:52:41] <mrsun> gmagno, how much voltage do you have ?
[18:53:02] <gmagno> mrsun, it is funny now that you talk about that. Because they do the calculations in order to 2.5Amp, not 3.5A as specified on ebay website
[18:53:23] <gmagno> mrsun, Power supply? It is a 12V 10A
[18:53:31] <mrsun> still at 2.5Amp at 50% you do not go over the limit for the stepper =)
[18:53:33] <mrsun> oki
[18:53:36] <IchGuckLive> Nema 17 its ok
[18:54:18] <IchGuckLive> for setting once more all power and parport disconnect
[18:54:52] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, it is brained coded already =) Not gonna do that error again
[18:55:39] <IchGuckLive> hopfull it is all in wright shape it coudt be broken already
[18:56:04] <gmagno> using more that the 1.8A should b bad for the motor, right? So, I should not use 100%*2.5A, right?
[18:56:08] <IchGuckLive> no black parts on the downside power pins of the tb
[18:56:22] <IchGuckLive> yes
[18:56:39] <IchGuckLive> you cand have a 2,5 or did you order it spacelly
[18:56:50] <IchGuckLive> it is all 3.5A
[18:56:53] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, the motors are 1.8A
[18:57:12] <IchGuckLive> you can only set 50% so 1.75
[18:57:19] <gmagno> the documentation does the calculations with 2.5A. But the ebay website says 3.5A max
[18:57:20] <gmagno> :P
[18:57:22] <IchGuckLive> it is ok
[18:57:26] <gmagno> ok
[18:57:35] <IchGuckLive> put the other steppers on
[18:57:42] <IchGuckLive> 3 i guess
[18:57:57] <IchGuckLive> do you got the red or the blue board
[18:58:08] <gmagno> blue board
[18:58:25] <IchGuckLive> so FR 304 mounted as Diodes
[18:58:26] <gmagno> this is exacly my board: http://www.ebay.com/itm/3axis-Nema17-stepper-motor-78oz-in-CNC-kit-3A-driver-board?item=300654822440&cmd=ViewItem&_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D159989555669286571
[18:59:01] <IchGuckLive> i know it
[18:59:05] <IchGuckLive> B) :D
[18:59:09] <IchGuckLive> O.O
[18:59:11] <gmagno> :D
[18:59:51] <IchGuckLive> are the led on if you connect Parport without power connect
[19:00:05] <gmagno> no
[19:00:28] <gmagno> I mean, without running linuxcnc
[19:00:55] <gmagno> Im not sure if running linux cnc would turn LED on, but no for sure, right?
[19:01:24] <IchGuckLive> you are checking all on the Axis that is configured or did you check the axis plugs
[19:02:07] <IchGuckLive> if you change things on X and the stepper is on Y it shoure will do nothing
[19:02:08] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, er.... I'm not sure I understand

[19:02:37] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, I have all motors connected
[19:02:38] <IchGuckLive> put all 3 steppers on and then check again from all power up
[19:02:49] <IchGuckLive> ok
[19:02:57] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, I never plugged them off, as you told me not to
[19:03:35] <IchGuckLive> so if you hit the F1 F1 combie on Axis are the driver stages going noicy as there is stioll the 100pf on the board
[19:03:48] <IchGuckLive> F1 F2
[19:04:18] <IchGuckLive> 1000pf to be correct on this hint
[19:04:29] <IchGuckLive> i runn mine on 150pf
[19:04:45] <IchGuckLive> and i did also change the FR to UF5406
[19:05:48] <IchGuckLive> the FR304 does need 1000ns to be reset the UFS only 50ns
[19:06:50] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, er.... I'm sorry, but I have no idea what you're talking about :S
[19:07:05] <IchGuckLive> Zen board modification
[19:07:08] <gmagno> where should I hit F1 F2?
[19:07:15] <IchGuckLive> to get the best out of it
[19:07:27] <IchGuckLive> in linuxcnc axis after stepconf
[19:07:57] <gmagno> by after you concluing stepconf wizard or still in stepconf wizard?
[19:08:03] <gmagno> mean*
[19:08:13] <IchGuckLive> gman where are you from im sitting in Germany near the French boarder
[19:08:29] <IchGuckLive> after concluding wizard
[19:08:30] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, I'm in Portugal
[19:09:01] <IchGuckLive> go thru stepconf and try it in linuxcnc
[19:13:43] <gmagno> btw, I've also bought this kit (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251086998347&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:GB:1123) if you think it should be easier to configure this one please tell me
[19:15:09] <IchGuckLive> igot the second one and they run perfect
[19:16:56] <mrsun> hmm, is cast iron castable in greensand ?
[19:18:18] <gmagno> IchGuckLive, do you use the same params you just told me to use with the my first one?
[19:19:14] <gmagno> could you please send me your stepconf file please? :)
[19:20:32] <IchGuckLive> im not having a mashine here
[19:20:44] <IchGuckLive> but wait i can check

[19:41:51] <jdh> that is a huge motor for Z I assume.
[19:42:04] <jdh> hive8: I read, but don't think I've ever posted anything.
[19:42:05] <gmagno> there is "custom", "thiel_mini"

[19:42:59] <hive8> making some parts
[19:43:01] <jdh> that is a huge motor... for Z I presume?
[19:43:17] <hive8> yes its 906oz/in
[19:43:29] <hive8> the rest is for X and Y
[19:43:32] <jdh> overkill, but nothing wrong with that!

[19:45:44] <hive8> maybe with a servo or something
[19:45:45] <jdh> that would be nice. Or even 6k
[19:45:59] <hive8> yes min 6k
[19:46:21] <hive8> so not sure whats better
[19:46:25] <Connor> jdh: Did you get the belt drive plans too ?
[19:46:35] <jdh> nope.
[19:46:39] <hive8> a VDF with a motor or a servo with a encoder for the spindle
[19:46:49] <Connor> hive8: Me and jdh was doing the conversion about the same time..
[19:47:21] <jdh> I'd assume a vfd+motor would be much cheaper per watt/hp/wtf

[20:35:40] <Tom_itx> JT-Shop any clue what would cause one stepper axis to 'growl'?
[20:35:46] <Tom_itx> it moves but makes noise
[20:35:53] <Tom_itx> afik the wiring is correct
[20:36:14] <Tom_itx> X and Z are fine but Y makes noise
[20:36:14] <jdh> did you check for loose screws on wiring?
[20:36:20] <Tom_itx> yes
[20:36:26] <Tom_itx> i'm gonna go back thru it in a bit
[20:36:28] <JT-Shop> growl during mid range?
[20:36:43] <Tom_itx> no pretty much anytime
[20:36:56] <Tom_itx> i'll triple check the wires again
[20:37:04] <JT-Shop> good plan
[20:37:04] <Tom_itx> and maybe slow the step rate down some more
[20:37:26] <Tom_itx> it's not the wires to the stepper or the drivers, i've swapped those out already
[20:37:39] -!- mhaberler has quit [Client Quit]
[20:37:42] <Tom_itx> it's between the pc and the drivers
[20:37:54] <Tom_itx> signal, not drive
[20:38:35] <Tom_itx> is the step signal high enough to require twisted pairs or separate shielded wires?
[20:38:40] <Tom_itx> they're all in one bundle...
[20:39:07] <Tom_itx> i'll sort it out tonight
[20:41:24] <gmagno> erm... about connecting stepper motors to driver board, is it important which is A+ and which is A-? I mean, I can find out which wires are from coil A and which are from coil B, but I cant find which is is A+ and which is A-, is this important when connecting to the driver board?
[20:41:43] <archivist> Tom_itx, loose coupling possibly
[20:41:44] <jdh> a and b are pretty much arbitrary
[20:42:34] <jdh> swapping +/- on a phase will just change the direction
[20:42:34] <Tom_itx> archivist it can't be that many things, i've narrowed it down to the wire between the mesa card or the step timing i believe. i could be mistaken
[20:42:45] <gmagno> jdh, right

[21:14:57] <JT-Shop> cool
[21:15:07] <andypugh> The trick is to not use Tesco Value CD-Rs
[21:16:38] <PCW> "<WillenCMD> Does anyone know if mesa has a i/o card that can switch 220v loads"
[21:16:40] <PCW> Not directly but any of the 50 pin FPGA cards can drive I/O module racks (like OPTO22)
[21:16:41] <PCW> as can the 7I69 (48 Bit TTL remote I/O)
[21:17:30] <andypugh> I drive SSRs from GPIO pins with no problems too.
[21:18:03] <JT-Shop> is that really "Lack of Value" CD-R's?
[21:18:17] <jdh> I have some driven directly by p-port pins
[21:18:22] <andypugh> Actually, I don't think I have any _directly_ on a GPIO, I think they all have at least a ULN2003
[21:18:23] <PCW> I had so much trouble with CDRs that I dont bother unless they are TDK or some decent brand (ive had better luck with CDRWs)
[21:18:56] <andypugh> JT-Shop: They stored _some_ data, and were £0.23 each.
[21:19:34] <andypugh> The TDKs were £0.57 each. Admittedly I got a good CD for that, not 5 coasters.
[21:20:24] <PCW> I just threw out a stack of cheap ones here. after a few years sitting around you could not tell the dye side from the other
[21:21:40] <andypugh> I only bought the cheap ones because I was on my bicycle and luggage space was limited (to pockets)
[21:21:56] <JT-Shop> I can understand that
[21:22:19] <andypugh> And they were a stack of 10 without jewel cases. The others were stacks of 50 or 100, or with jewel cases
[21:24:22] <andypugh> Anyway, I am nearly back to where I was before I tried to install netatalk..
[21:24:42] <JT-Shop> 100 with jewel cases would rather stick out a bit
[21:25:25] <jdh> he's got *really* big pockets.

[22:42:59] <JT-Shop> I usually walk under wine
[22:43:07] <JT-Shop> to risky to run
[22:43:12] <Tom_itx> from what i see you spill quite a bit

[22:44:00] -!- Guthur has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[22:44:01] <JT-Shop> I fill the glass too high then walk from the house to the shop and in transit I usually spill a drop or three

[22:44:39] <Tom_itx> i'm just now getting ready to work on it
[22:44:52] <Tom_itx> i'm gonna run a wire to the driver and see if that's it first
[22:45:22] <andypugh> JT-Shop: Who not take the bottle to the shop?
[22:45:28] <andypugh> What could possibly go wrong?
[22:45:33] <Tom_itx> makes me think it's wiring since the other 2 aren't doing it
[22:45:48] <JT-Shop> too easy to refill the glass you know
[22:46:25] <JT-Shop> Tom_itx: swap till you find it
[22:46:39] <Tom_itx> i've been down that road already
[22:46:47] <Tom_itx> it's between the driver and the pc
[22:46:59] <Tom_itx> the stepper wiring is ok
[22:49:31] <r00t4rd3d> im great in photoshop but getting it to wood has been stumping me
[22:49:50] <r00t4rd3d> everyone has a different opinion
[22:52:16] <andypugh> r00t4rd3d: The thing is that Photoshop makes bitmaps. And wood is continuous.

[22:58:15] <andypugh> Inkscape or some other vector pacakage might suit better. it does rather depend on what you want to make though.
[22:58:28] <r00t4rd3d> just print text on wood atm

[23:04:26] <JT-Shop> nope
[23:04:55] <JT-Shop> unless the wiki has ArcEye's version
[23:05:04] <JT-Shop> I shall go and see
[23:05:13] <andypugh> It looks the same to me
[23:05:31] <JT-Shop> huge difference between the two
[23:05:49] <andypugh> Really?
[23:05:51] <JT-Shop> ArcEye's you can have multi lines and more options
[23:06:08] <andypugh> They are both called engrave-lines-v3
[23:06:25] <andypugh> (section 9)
[23:06:35] <JT-Shop> oh... I see it now below engrave-11

[23:11:51] <r00t4rd3d> not normally, 10
[23:11:52] <Tom_itx> the shaft on the stepper was rubbing on my enclosure

[23:16:01] <r00t4rd3d> we will travel some if the money is right though

[23:19:36] <tjb1> Is kapton tape the heat transfer tape?
[23:20:40] <r00t4rd3d> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kapton
[23:21:38] <r00t4rd3d> 3D Printing
[23:21:38] <r00t4rd3d> Kapton Tape is commonly used by members of the RepRap community for covering the surface of a heated build platform, mainly because kapton adheres very well to ABS plastic hence preventing the ABS part from warping.

[23:22:52] <r00t4rd3d> yup
[23:23:17] <Tom_itx> it's also $300/lb

[23:26:22] <Tom_itx> so i didn't notice it right away
[23:26:45] <Tom_itx> no not hardly
[23:27:30] <uw> thermal paste and zipties
[23:27:56] <Tom_itx> tjb1, what about a stick on thermal heatsink insulator
[23:28:04] <andypugh> The main advantage of Kapton is that it is Polyimide, and has a working temperature of 400C (750F). Not many other plastics get anywhere near that.
[23:28:09] * JT-Shop wanders in for a glass of cabernet sauvignon from a cardboard box
[23:28:33] <Tom_itx> i bet if you asked, the guy that makes my stencils would send you some

[23:32:30] <Tom_itx> how much do you need?
