[00:00:00] <r00t4rd3d> how about steve stallings
[00:00:27] <jthornton> don't know who he is
[00:00:34] <r00t4rd3d> he is the tech contact
[00:00:40] <wd5jwy> Hey John - I'm here
[00:01:16] <wd5jwy> I wasn't able to install the .comp file for some reason
[00:01:35] <jthornton> quick question the ratio between the winder and the guide is for wire spacing?
[00:01:44] <jthornton> you need to install dev
[00:02:16] <wd5jwy> yes, sort of
[00:02:22] <jthornton> let me see I put that in the manual somewhere
[00:02:42] <jthornton> sudo apt-get install linuxcnc-dev
[00:02:48] <jthornton> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/hal/comp.html#_installing
[00:02:55] <wd5jwy> ah, ok
[00:03:04] <jthornton> so the wire spacing is even except on the ends?
[00:04:16] <wd5jwy> yes, let me find you a pic - it will tell you a lot
[00:04:23] <jthornton> ok
[00:04:47] <r00t4rd3d> isnt a pic the talks a video?
[00:05:05] <r00t4rd3d> that
[00:05:34] <wd5jwy> http://tinyurl.com/92dahnv
[00:05:56] <r00t4rd3d> makes me really sad the Late Show had to layoff employees and that fat idiot took a 10 million pay cut.
[00:06:11] <jthornton> is that three seperate coils?
[00:06:26] <r00t4rd3d> what is that thing?
[00:06:28] <wd5jwy> no, one continuous wire - but 3 pies
[00:06:32] <wd5jwy> it's a RF choke
[00:06:53] <jthornton> so wind one pie move over wind the second pie?
[00:07:10] <wd5jwy> yes, but moving over is the easy part
[00:07:17] <r00t4rd3d> what do you do with that?
[00:07:32] <wd5jwy> the commercial machines that do this......
[00:08:01] <jthornton> it almost looks like a dwell at the end of the stroke then a constant velocity to the other side
[00:08:05] <wd5jwy> use sine and cosine functions to achieve the proper traverse movement
[00:08:35] <wd5jwy> well, that's just it - the traverse cannot spend too much time on either end of it's travel
[00:08:58] <wd5jwy> otherwise too much wire gets place on the ends and you don't get that pattern
[00:09:22] <wd5jwy> that's the reason for the heart-shaped CAM they used in the older mechanical winders
[00:09:42] <wd5jwy> dimple at the top and small peak at the bottom forced quick reversal of the traverse
[00:09:52] <wd5jwy> if that makes sense
[00:10:22] <jthornton> ok, yes that does make sense and that can be done in the component I think with little effort
[00:10:54] <wd5jwy> but, someone was commenting on here earlier today - we could play with the acceleration settings dynamically to get the same movement
[00:11:07] <wd5jwy> so I think a lead-screw would work instead of a cam
[00:11:26] <jthornton> say you define the start and end of the coil and the amount of accelerated move and the scale of the acceleration
[00:11:35] <wd5jwy> YES
[00:11:41] <wd5jwy> I think that would work
[00:12:01] <wd5jwy> you would need to play with the numbers, but it should work
[00:12:26] -!- Thetawaves has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
[00:12:40] <wd5jwy> so, here's my first problem
[00:12:43] <jthornton> say for example the coil is 1000 steps wide and you want the steps 0-25 and 975-1000 to accelerate to a faster speed to the end and decelerate back to normal speed.
[00:12:55] <jthornton> for the middle
[00:13:01] <wd5jwy> yes, exactly
[00:13:39] <wd5jwy> If I was good at trig, I'm sure the numbers could be generated that way too
[00:13:44] <r00t4rd3d> a single speed and tension the magnet wire sounds easier
[00:13:49] <jthornton> so you tell the component how many steps to accelerate in and how fast to add on to the velocity
[00:15:02] <jthornton> you could even tell it how many layers or revs of the mandrel you want and stop when that amount of layers is wound
[00:15:33] <wd5jwy> correct - a lot of it could be automated - and it is in a commercial winder
[00:15:41] <wd5jwy> but I don't have 50K for one of those
[00:16:01] <jthornton> the control side is free!
[00:16:06] <r00t4rd3d> so are trying to mass produce rf chokes or something?
[00:16:17] <jthornton> you just have to build the mandrel and guide
[00:16:38] <wd5jwy> well, maybe - there's a few types of these that no one makes any more
[00:16:48] <wd5jwy> yes, I already have the wire guide
[00:17:01] <wd5jwy> and collecting parts for the mandrel and tail-stock
[00:17:35] <wd5jwy> so, here's my first problem
[00:17:53] <wd5jwy> I haven't yet succeeded in getting my motors to run with any of the code so far
[00:17:54] -!- tlab [tlab!~tlab@c-98-223-22-156.hsd1.in.comcast.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:18:04] -!- bpuk has quit []
[00:18:17] <wd5jwy> I think I'm doing something wrong in the .hal file, but can't figure out what it is
[00:18:44] <jthornton> ok, install that component and connect the step and direction pins to your parallel port in start.hal
[00:19:41] <jthornton> you should be able to run the guide stepper back and forth at will with what I uploaded to the forum
[00:20:13] <wd5jwy> well, I notice in one of the standard configs that they add the parport driver to the thread - is that required before you can get pulses out of the parallel port?
[00:20:28] <jthornton> yea
[00:21:00] <wd5jwy> ok, so that's what I'm missing I think - and that's not in your .hal file either - right?
[00:21:10] <jthornton> loadrt hal_parport cfg="0"
[00:21:16] <jthornton> should load the driver
[00:21:24] <wd5jwy> that loads the driver
[00:21:36] <wd5jwy> but it doesn't load it to the thread "addf" - right?
[00:21:40] <jthornton> show pin in the terminal will show you if it is loaded
[00:21:42] <jthornton> yes
[00:21:49] <jthornton> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/hal/parallel_port.html#_installing
[00:22:01] <wd5jwy> addf parport.0.write base-thread
[00:22:17] <wd5jwy> that's what's missing - wrong thread name in that example tho
[00:22:30] <jthornton> in my example it would be fast not base-thread
[00:22:35] <wd5jwy> yes
[00:22:45] <jthornton> your catching on :)
[00:22:49] <wd5jwy> ok, so let me get the .comp file installed
[00:22:52] <jthornton> will pass me soon I bet
[00:22:53] <wd5jwy> SLOWLY
[00:22:58] <wd5jwy> never
[00:23:20] <r00t4rd3d> wd5jwy, http://www.bignick.net/images/RadioPix/Gingery.jpg
[00:23:25] <r00t4rd3d> u see that?
[00:23:32] <wd5jwy> yes, I built one
[00:23:35] <wd5jwy> that's not mine tho
[00:23:51] <wd5jwy> the brass wire guide was a bitch to build
[00:23:58] <wd5jwy> had to cut out all the parts on my cnc
[00:24:03] <wd5jwy> but it works - kinda
[00:24:41] <wd5jwy> if you look on the right-bottom corner of the machine - that's the CAM he's using - it's oval
[00:24:54] <wd5jwy> it can't be oval if it's going to work correctly
[00:25:04] <wd5jwy> but, for messing around, it's ok
[00:25:14] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Old-Stock-in-box-Morris-Coilmaster-Coil-Winder-for-making-radio-coils-/221085300312?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3379b5f658
[00:25:14] <r00t4rd3d> Coilmaster
[00:25:37] <wd5jwy> yes, those were manufactured back in the 1950's - same type of mochine
[00:26:09] <r00t4rd3d> that means it will last forever
[00:26:26] <wd5jwy> yeah, more or less - still a bunch of them around
[00:26:45] <r00t4rd3d> 17 bids
[00:27:26] <r00t4rd3d> who are you trying to ham with japan?

[00:28:00] <r00t4rd3d> isnt that what rf chokes are for like that?
[00:28:20] <r00t4rd3d> some kinda transmitter
[00:28:32] <wd5jwy> well, yeah they are used in all types of radio equipment - not just transmitters
[00:28:39] <wd5jwy> receivers too
[00:28:56] <r00t4rd3d> what do you do with them?
[00:29:25] <wd5jwy> I would use them mostly tube-type equipment - transmitters and receivers
[00:29:44] <wd5jwy> the problem is - no one makes them anymore because there's not a big market for them

[01:02:34] <Jymmm> 3.7 to 16v
[01:02:39] <r00t4rd3d> i got a 18650 battery pack that can be recharged with solar panels for my arduino stuff
[01:04:41] <r00t4rd3d> i dont ever use it but i got it.
[01:06:55] <jthornton> wd5jwy, let me know how you make out
[01:06:56] <r00t4rd3d> i have a shit load of arduino stuff i dont touch actually

[01:20:19] <ReadError> oh
[01:20:30] <ReadError> the stuff i run is like 35C discharge
[01:20:47] <Jymmm> ReadError: What does that mean? 35c 40c etc ?
[01:20:50] <ReadError> i peak out at 120A discharge on one of them
[01:20:56] <ReadError> C = capacity
[01:21:07] <ReadError> so like 1C on a 1000mAh pack would be 1A
[01:21:40] <Jymmm> a multiplier?
[01:22:25] <Jymmm> 12AH @ 3A draw per hour == 4 hours

[12:16:29] <jthornton> if I run a hal file with halrun like this halrun -I -f saved.hal when I shut down the gui part how do I shut down halrun?
[12:17:40] <jthornton> or do I not want the -I
[12:19:15] <jthornton> hmm without the -I it runs but shuts down at once so that is not the answer
[12:22:21] <jthornton> what is the difference between halrun and halcmd?
[12:23:08] <jthornton> if I do halcmd -f start.hal I get an error RTAPI: ERROR: could not open shared memory (errno=2)
[12:23:08] <jthornton> Segmentation fault
[12:28:33] <cpresser> halrun also starts the complete hal-environment; halcmd expects the environment to be ready
[12:29:13] <jthornton> ah ok that makes sense
[12:32:06] <jthornton> I think I need to figure out how to use gladevcp -H option
[12:34:49] <jthornton> nope, that gives the same error
[12:35:10] <jthornton> I wonder how you set up the complete hal environment?
[12:36:59] <jthornton> hmmm halrun is a bash script
[12:41:20] <awallin> scripts/realtime start (or something like that)
[12:41:33] <awallin> before you can run halcmd
[12:41:43] <jthornton> thanks
[12:43:57] <jthornton> hmm it is in a RIP but command not found for installed

[14:11:44] <jthornton> syyl, is there any details on that burner anywhere?
[14:11:59] <syyl> not really
[14:12:05] <jthornton> ok
[14:12:15] <syyl> i think its built like in the book from artfull budger(?)
[14:13:04] <syyl> there is just a blower, a pressurized tank for the wasteoil and a nozzle, that sprays the oil into the airstream of the blower
[14:14:02] <jthornton> like this? http://www.artfulbodgermetalcasting.com/4.html
[14:16:58] <syyl> thats the design, yes
[14:17:32] <jp__> jthornton: got any good glade/python tutorial links?
[14:17:49] <jthornton> I only know of one that is good :)
[14:18:09] <jthornton> http://gnipsel.com/
[14:18:36] <jp__> lol
[14:19:06] <jp__> i use python all the time in my scada package but just starting to play with glade
[14:19:33] <jp__> looks straight forward
[14:20:21] <jthornton> yea, once you get a feel for the Gtk Interface Designer and learn where you have to press the enter key for something to stick...
[14:20:59] <jp__> yeah that seems to be an anoying pain with alot of people
[14:25:12] <jp__> is it possible to embed a glade app in an axis tab? i understand i can use glade to build a layout and place hal widgets but can you just place regular glade widigets running python code behind to do whatever?

[14:27:53] <Tom_itx> jthornton just threw it all in a bag and shook it up

[14:47:59] <Tom_itx> anyone know of a quality pen drill?
[14:48:26] <Tom_itx> the last one i got lasted maybe a month before the cheapass aluminum housing gave out
[14:48:59] <Tom_itx> and my drill chuck won't hold a #80 drill
[14:49:21] <JT-Shop> all I've found are cheapassjunk
[14:50:05] <drmacro> I've got a .hal and .ini file generated by stepconf wizard. I can jog all the axis, but is if I try to run the LINUXCNC demo file it says can't run when the axis aren't homed. But, I homed them all (the little icon is beside each coord in the DRO). Looking for where to start trouble shooting. At this point I don't have limit switches and don't think I have any defined...
[14:50:09] <Tom_itx> i guess i could make a new end for this one from brass or something
[14:50:40] <Tom_itx> i finally wore my good one out
[14:51:12] <JT-Shop> drmacro: after you home all the axes you still get the error?
[14:51:35] <drmacro> JT-SHOP: yes
[14:52:11] <JT-Shop> sounds like a mistake in your config somehow

[16:00:07] <joe9> just want to check if this is a big deal? I want to change the code behind the "Home All" button to also set my G55 values (using touch probe) with a G10 L2 P2 .... Is that a big deal?

[19:06:03] <sendoushi> hey guys
[19:06:29] <sendoushi> what's new in the cnc world? :D
[19:07:00] <sendoushi> so... i'm thinking on building an engrave / mill cnc... anyone saying i should or something? :P
[19:09:16] -!- karavanjo has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[19:09:45] <pjm> yes build a mill! well worth doing... i did mine a few years back and probably use it at least once per weekend
[19:10:29] <sendoushi> pjm: do you sell your work or something? like... people go to you to make customs?
[19:11:53] <sendoushi> first i was thinking on making a big mill to make guitars
[19:12:31] <sendoushi> that really seems interesting for me but ... the big one, unless i pay a ton, won't be able to make engrave or something right?
[19:12:37] <sendoushi> or is it all the same?
[19:12:41] <pjm> ah no not really sell it, its usually just for projects around here

[19:12:57] <pjm> u can make a mill to engrave easily...
[19:13:03] <sendoushi> i dunno... i'm kind of scared to spend like 600e to make a CNC that i won't ever have clients to gather that kind of money
[19:13:13] <pjm> i use something like 0.25mm engraver bits on mine to do writing and its OK
[19:13:25] <sendoushi> i see
[19:13:53] <pjm> http://pjm.dyndns.org/twtr/nixie4.jpg writing on top of that was engraved on the mill for example
[19:14:12] <sendoushi> ah it seems really fine
[19:14:29] <pjm> i guess if u want to make guitars, then u are talking about a gantry type mill with a fairly large bed
[19:14:39] <sendoushi> yes
[19:14:48] <sendoushi> someone here on the channel helped me figure out the stuff i need for it
[19:14:55] <sendoushi> and its like 500, 600e
[19:15:13] <sendoushi> but i was thinking maybe i should start slow and low
[19:15:27] <sendoushi> maybe start by doing some custom pieces and sell them or something
[19:15:34] <pjm> yep thats possible
[19:15:54] <sendoushi> this will always be an hobby but as obviously i don't want to make my hobby much expensive since i have others ehehe
[19:15:56] <pjm> i made some antenna feeds on my mill and sold them for a small profit, which went back into the 'upgrades' pot
[19:16:26] <sendoushi> i dunno i see myself doing customs like pieces for guitars and pedals or...
[19:16:38] <sendoushi> i dunno poker chips ehehe
[19:16:41] <pjm> if there is a market for it, then it is well worth doing
[19:16:53] <pjm> and u can always punt the bits on ebay
[19:16:59] <sendoushi> punt?
[19:17:01] -!- Newtonianb has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[19:17:05] <pjm> not that i know much about guitars
[19:17:12] <pjm> u know, auction / sell them on
[19:17:18] <sendoushi> aaah
[19:17:20] <sendoushi> ok
[19:17:54] <pjm> but for the mill, u can start with a small machine
[19:18:02] <sendoushi> i could like... do it by hand but that take double the time i have know how around 3d and since i don't have any tools... it would get more expensive
[19:18:18] <sendoushi> pjm: maybe its the best to understand the machine and stuff
[19:18:33] <pjm> yeah probably a good first step
[19:18:37] <sendoushi> and since there are no schematics for gantries on the internet and stuff...
[19:18:50] <pjm> make it up as you go along
[19:18:52] <pjm> thats what i did
[19:18:55] <pjm> with my mill
[19:19:01] <pjm> started with 3 axis on parport
[19:19:09] <sendoushi> parport?
[19:19:13] <pjm> and ended with 4 axis controlled via mesa cards
[19:19:16] <pjm> printer port..
[19:19:20] <awallin> there should be a few documented router builds on cnczone, but it may be hard to find the signal among all of the noise..

[19:48:47] -!- Viesturs has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[19:49:16] <wd5jwy> ok, I see linuxcnc-dev now
[19:49:27] <jthornton> ok install that
[19:49:41] <jthornton> and linuxcnc if it is not installed
[19:50:35] <wd5jwy> installing - linuxcnc was already installed
[19:50:54] <wd5jwy> got an error
[19:50:56] <wd5jwy> E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linuxcnc-dev_1%3a2.5.1_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man1/comp.1.gz', which is also in package nmh 0
[19:51:52] <jthornton> dunno what that is
[19:52:23] <wd5jwy> me neither - guess I'll just ignore for now and try to install the comp file - see what happens
[19:52:30] <jthornton> ok
[19:53:34] <wd5jwy> crap - "sudo: comp: command not found"
[19:53:50] <wd5jwy> hang on - in the wrong dir
[19:54:00] <jthornton> try sudo apt-get install linuxcnc-dev
[19:58:06] <wd5jwy> still getting the dev install error
[19:58:13] <wd5jwy> I wonder if a re-boot would help?
[19:58:25] <wd5jwy> probably not tho
[19:58:28] <jthornton> can't hurt
[19:58:37] <wd5jwy> Ok, lemme try
[19:58:40] <wd5jwy> by the way
[19:58:51] <wd5jwy> I am now able to make my motors run
[19:58:57] <wd5jwy> finally
[19:59:03] <jthornton> YEA!
[19:59:14] <wd5jwy> so that's at least a small victory
[19:59:28] <jthornton> one bite at a time
[19:59:42] <wd5jwy> pretty cool too - I can go in and invert the dir bit and reverse the motors
[19:59:54] <wd5jwy> this is some fun stuff

[20:00:53] <wd5jwy> the last thing - other than your improvements - is to figure out how to shut down the Hal module when closing the glade panel
[20:01:21] <wd5jwy> I know you said to do that in the "window-destroy" def, but I'm not sure what command to use
[20:01:53] <jthornton> yea, it leaves the halrun up and going even after you close the window
[20:02:18] <wd5jwy> yes, and that's not good - it froze up my puter once and then crashed
[20:02:26] <wd5jwy> so, that's some cleanup still left to do
[20:02:41] <jthornton> you can "install" your GUI and just run it with linuxcnc path to my ini
[20:02:59] <jthornton> did you see that in the forum?
[20:03:29] <wd5jwy> I haven't looked through all that yet
[20:03:34] <wd5jwy> but I will
[20:03:49] <wd5jwy> let me see if a reboot will allow me to install the dev package
[20:03:54] <wd5jwy> be back in a minute

[20:11:38] <jthornton> I wonder what nmh is?
[20:11:57] <archivist> what is the E: you keep pasting
[20:12:12] <wd5jwy> I dunno - drive letter maybe?
[20:12:23] <cradek> nmh is a very old email handling package
[20:12:28] <wd5jwy> nmh = numerical machine
[20:12:29] <wd5jwy> ?
[20:12:35] <archivist> one does not have drive letter on linux
[20:12:35] <cradek> "comp" was how you wrote an email
[20:12:51] <wd5jwy> that's what I thought
[20:12:51] <cradek> just uninstall it if you don't use it
[20:13:03] <wd5jwy> I don't use it - how do I uninstall it?
[20:13:39] <wd5jwy> I'm a linux newbie - so don't know my way around too well yet
[20:13:46] <jthornton> synaptic package manager
[20:13:51] <wd5jwy> ok
[20:13:56] <wd5jwy> look for nmh?
[20:13:59] <jthornton> search for nmh
[20:14:02] <jthornton> yep
[20:14:32] <cradek> http://rand-mh.sourceforge.net/book/exmh/figs/mpotedbw.gif
[20:14:50] <cradek> this is what the gui for it looks like (I used it heavily, long long ago)
[20:15:02] <L84Supper> and hope that gnome, x and 67 other applications aren't dependent on it :)
[20:15:17] <wd5jwy> ok, nmh completely removed
[20:15:19] <jthornton> I wonder how it got installed?
[20:15:27] <wd5jwy> trying linuxcnc-dev install again
[20:15:56] <wd5jwy> I think I did it - linux was looking for any program with name "comp" and found nmh
[20:16:08] <wd5jwy> asked me if I wanted to install it - thot I needed it
[20:16:12] <wd5jwy> so I did
[20:16:21] <jthornton> gotcha
[20:16:57] <cradek> it's hard to avoid using any program name that's been used before
[20:17:06] <wd5jwy> Cool! - successfully installed this time
[20:17:19] <wd5jwy> so, I should be able to install the comp now
[20:17:31] <jthornton> yep
[20:19:02] <wd5jwy> ok, done - it worked that time
[20:19:11] <jthornton> cool
[20:19:51] <wd5jwy> ok, getting ready to try it
[20:22:22] <wd5jwy> SyntaxError: invalid syntax
[20:22:23] <wd5jwy> start.hal:1: gladevcp exited without becoming ready
[20:23:02] <jthornton> did you change anything?
[20:23:21] <wd5jwy> no, just downloaded the zip file and unzipped into a new dir
[20:23:40] <wd5jwy> let me delete these files and dwnload again

[20:25:25] <sendoushi> soo... let's say i use linuxcnc what's the best 3d software to work with it?
[20:25:27] <sendoushi> i'm used to work with maya and luxology modo (more this one)
[20:25:29] <sendoushi> or is it all the same?
[20:26:24] <jthornton> did you copy the last version of the component? it's not in the zip file
[20:26:36] <wd5jwy> ok, worked this time
[20:26:42] <MattyMatt> 3d software isn't really CAD, but I use blender so.....
[20:27:05] <jthornton> got a green bar going back and forth?
[20:27:51] <jthornton> I think I hear the other children calling my name...
[20:28:03] <jthornton> they want me to come outside and play now
[20:29:16] <wd5jwy> yes, green bar works
[20:29:21] <wd5jwy> that's pretty cool
[20:29:22] <sendoushi> MattyMatt: ooh so... any software will work i guess
[20:29:32] <sendoushi> awesome!!! now i just have to do a CNC
[20:29:33] <sendoushi> :p
[20:30:21] <MattyMatt> you may find CAM scripts a bit scarce on maya. they turn your 3d/CAD into gcode for the CNC
[20:30:38] <sendoushi> i prefer to use Modo
[20:30:48] <sendoushi> but there are always ways to convert from one to another also
[20:30:54] <sendoushi> so... i don't see problems :)
[20:30:55] <MattyMatt> yeah
[20:31:32] <MattyMatt> if you've got a complex artistic model to mill, you can use some common format like STL to get it into a gcode generator
[20:32:07] <sendoushi> well not for now but in the future i have the idea to make some engrave stuff
[20:32:13] <sendoushi> like custom parts for guitars and stuff
[20:32:45] <MattyMatt> 2D engraving tends to be done differently, via DXF or SVG
[20:33:09] <sendoushi> but then... you have to set like the Y or something no?
[20:33:26] <sendoushi> since those formats are vector
[20:33:53] <MattyMatt> yeah engraving can be 3d too
[20:34:21] <sendoushi> but that will be experiences and tryouts after building it so...
[20:34:41] <sendoushi> it will take a while lol
