[00:03:24] <tjb1> Any recommendation on nylon vs acetal
[00:03:31] <JT-Shop> jp_w700: just wanted to make sure you knew about the vertical expand
[00:03:38] <tjb1> Im thinking nylon because I don't need high twisting force
[00:03:44] <tjb1> Vibration and shock would be better
[00:03:53] -!- Yoshi47 has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[00:04:23] <jp_w700> my preference is delrin
[00:04:31] <tjb1> Don't have that choice :)
[00:05:33] <jp_w700> delrin is acetal
[00:06:01] <jdh> delrin is my favorite non-metal.
[00:06:06] <jp_w700> sorry should of just said acetal
[00:06:06] <jdh> well, other than boobies.

[02:37:16] <r00t4rd3d> "NY judge: Poker's not gambling under federal law"
[02:37:37] <r00t4rd3d> poker is what started gambling
[02:40:41] <MattyMatt> poker is a game of skill, therefore not gambling
[02:41:10] <r00t4rd3d> lol
[02:41:59] <r00t4rd3d> you can only use your skill if you get the right cards
[02:42:16] <r00t4rd3d> which is a gamble
[02:42:29] <MattyMatt> meh, just gotta bluff harder
[02:42:41] <r00t4rd3d> and gamble on winning
[02:43:08] <MattyMatt> picking a fast horse is also a skill >:)
[02:43:55] <r00t4rd3d> yeah, you gotta know the inside scoop to what one got some crystal meth before the race.
[02:44:39] <MattyMatt> does that make them faster or slower? they call it all doping these days
[02:44:52] <r00t4rd3d> faster
[02:45:08] <r00t4rd3d> the shed version of cocaine it is

[02:45:47] <MattyMatt> yeah so maybe they just whinney and sweat but get distracted before the 3rd furlong
[02:47:17] <r00t4rd3d> i should team up with some indians and open a poker house
[02:48:17] <MattyMatt> I'd have reservations about that
[02:49:53] <MattyMatt> hmmz. I did code today to mill a faceplate with 12 radial slots. I could easily make it 37
[02:50:11] <MattyMatt> and put all the slots around the edge
[02:50:30] <MattyMatt> or 38, if it's for America
[02:52:08] <MattyMatt> new low-rent casinos here have 00 now, so maybe if you did one without in America you'd be considered high class
[02:52:40] <r00t4rd3d> are you on drugs?
[02:52:44] <MattyMatt> I wish
[02:52:59] <r00t4rd3d> okay, must be me.
[02:54:21] <r00t4rd3d> A chipmunk or squirrel died in my garage and it fucking stinks and I cant find it.
[02:54:41] <MattyMatt> you'll have to clean the whole place
[02:55:55] <MattyMatt> got any heavy machines in there yet?
[02:56:22] <r00t4rd3d> not too bad
[02:56:33] <r00t4rd3d> id rather find the dead whatever and get it out
[02:56:56] <r00t4rd3d> i only half assed the look tonight

[02:59:21] <r00t4rd3d> i found a small ass mouse in a bucket a couple weeks ago and that bitch stunk too
[03:00:12] <r00t4rd3d> poisoning them is worse then just letting them go
[03:01:11] <MattyMatt> keeping them out is best
[03:01:50] <MattyMatt> fresh air is for the birds
[03:01:57] <r00t4rd3d> im surrounded by woods
[03:05:13] <MattyMatt> mm wood. any plywood trees?
[03:05:54] <r00t4rd3d> you can make plywood out of anything
[03:06:17] <r00t4rd3d> but no my seeds never germinated
[03:06:36] <r00t4rd3d> i traded the family cow for some

[03:09:04] <r00t4rd3d> i put my controller power supply in my pc case today :)
[03:09:21] <MattyMatt> with the PC?
[03:09:26] <r00t4rd3d> yeah
[03:10:01] <MattyMatt> my mill is running on an ATX for now
[03:10:18] <r00t4rd3d> i got a mini itx
[03:10:24] <r00t4rd3d> d525
[03:10:34] <r00t4rd3d> intel atom
[03:10:37] <MattyMatt> I mean the motors are running on 12V :)
[03:10:44] <r00t4rd3d> oh
[03:11:02] <MattyMatt> I could probably power a mini-itx off the same supply
[03:11:24] <r00t4rd3d> my motors are on 18v atm
[03:12:07] <MattyMatt> yarr I want a d525. I can ignore real time errors on an all-stepper machine but I'll be doing my lathe next
[03:12:21] <r00t4rd3d> i could probably power the d525 off my controller power but I dont know how
[03:12:50] <MattyMatt> there are mini-itx psu that take car power
[03:13:18] <r00t4rd3d> the newer intel atom can run off batteries
[03:13:19] <MattyMatt> but you might as well use 120V
[03:13:22] <Tom_itx> pico psu
[03:13:37] <MattyMatt> they be the ones
[03:13:40] <Tom_itx> this one is running off 12v

[03:15:23] -!- mhaberler has quit [Quit: mhaberler]
[03:15:53] <r00t4rd3d> u been wanting a supply like that
[03:15:58] <Tom_itx> you may not want to use the same supply due to noise from the motors
[03:16:06] <r00t4rd3d> u/i
[03:16:36] <r00t4rd3d> pico boards are expensive though
[03:16:46] <MattyMatt> I need better drivers before I care about >12V for the motors. TB6560 have such a poor stepping rate I can't run the motors at full speed even on 12V
[03:16:50] <r00t4rd3d> so are nano ones
[03:17:01] <r00t4rd3d> i got a tb6560
[03:18:03] <MattyMatt> datasheet says 15µs mark & space. I seem to be OK at 10µs and I've heard 7µs is stable
[03:18:31] <MattyMatt> once you've defeated the slow optos on the chinese 4-axis
[03:19:08] <r00t4rd3d> i only got the 3 axis version
[03:19:13] <r00t4rd3d> Tom_itx, http://www.ebay.com/itm/VIA-EPIA-P830-12L-Pico-ITX-Embedded-Board-/160851465690?pt=Motherboards&hash=item25737e95da
[03:19:22] <r00t4rd3d> cheapest on ebay that i see, 259
[03:21:32] <r00t4rd3d> hmm no parallel port options :(
[03:22:51] <Tom_itx> i'm not sure how well they work with linuxcnc either
[03:23:05] <Tom_itx> this one won't work for it
[03:23:10] <Tom_itx> it's way too old
[03:24:01] <MattyMatt> repraps are moving to arm boards now. not running linuxcnc but they could in theory
[03:24:17] <Tom_itx> yeah a few are i think
[03:24:40] <MattyMatt> maybe that cut down russian version
[03:24:50] <Tom_itx> i've got a bunch of old PC104's too
[03:25:09] <Tom_itx> not sure what they'd be good for
[03:25:32] <r00t4rd3d> i might try a small cnc with arduino and grbl shield
[03:25:39] <r00t4rd3d> or etch a sketch

[03:27:01] <MattyMatt> arduinos lack fpu, that's what's driving the change to arm
[03:27:02] <r00t4rd3d> check that out
[03:28:32] <MattyMatt> also the lack of ram. you have to spoon feed them line by line currently
[03:29:10] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.embeddedtronics.com/cnc_eas.html
[03:30:00] <MattyMatt> those plywood gears looks disturbingly like mine
[03:30:30] <MattyMatt> I've never used them. I made them for looks, then made delrin ones to actually use
[03:30:32] <r00t4rd3d> that design is pretty simple
[03:31:03] <r00t4rd3d> he posted the gears too
[03:31:04] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.embeddedtronics.com/image/cnc_etch/20%2036%20spur%20gear%2020degree.dxf
[03:31:20] <MattyMatt> meh, might as well put a pencil on a cnc
[03:31:39] <r00t4rd3d> not as cool
[03:31:55] <MattyMatt> not even if it's a deltabot?
[03:33:44] <MattyMatt> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYs6jASd_Ww&feature=relmfu
[03:33:50] <MattyMatt> latest reprap
[03:36:26] <r00t4rd3d> you can cut most of that too on a router
[03:36:54] <r00t4rd3d> i seen plans for one someplace
[03:37:41] <MattyMatt> yeah there's very little structure to it. 2 plywood sides but it's mostly the Z slides holding it up
[03:39:07] <MattyMatt> as the cartesian to delta is working in the firmware, I'm tempted to make a cutting one with high pitch acme
[03:40:16] <MattyMatt> belt drive Z really limits the tool weight
[03:40:37] <MattyMatt> peopel are designing extra small extruders to suit it
[03:41:29] <MattyMatt> it's either that or drive the filament from the other end of a teflon pipe

[10:22:19] <mrsun> hmm, anyone heard of someone that has built his own hexapod cnc milling machine? :)
[10:24:22] <archivist> there is one on yourtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_UmhUjZhNo
[10:25:16] <mrsun> oh a beefy one =)
[10:26:01] <mrsun> expensive build i recon
[10:26:07] <mrsun> tho, no linear guides needed =)
[10:30:25] <Valen> we are building a new router currently
[10:30:37] <Valen> or thinking about how to best go about said thing
[10:30:48] <Valen> think a hexapod is a good way of doing it?
[10:32:01] <Valen> how are they generally for accuracy
[10:33:32] <archivist> I imagine any play is magnified
[10:33:53] <archivist> so I wont be making one
[10:36:04] <Valen> 's what i figured
[10:36:08] <Valen> neat, but sloppy
[10:39:19] <jthornton> I'd hate to program that
[10:42:11] <Valen> thats what the kins module is for
[10:42:29] <Valen> you just write a G1 X50 and it makes all the motors move to do that for you
[10:42:37] <Valen> the homing sequence could be interesting though lol
[10:45:56] <mrsun> hexapods from what i understand is extremly rigid, but like archivist said .. play would be a problem
[10:46:00] <mrsun> i would like hexapods to be able to get away with say milling or grinding stone etc without a chance of grit getting on the ways etc =)
[10:46:03] <mrsun> as there is no ways
[10:46:17] <mrsun> just cover all "axles" with bellows and voila

[12:42:01] <jdh> looks like there is an inkscape plugin that exports gcode for tangential knives.

[16:24:14] <taiden> i was not doing anything out of the ordinary

[16:26:15] <t12> large job file?
[16:26:19] <JT-Shop> did you run the latency test for an extended period of time?
[16:26:27] <taiden> same as the other hours i was running
[16:26:31] <t12> (what kind of laptop)
[16:26:42] <taiden> i did a 18 hour test with glxgears, do loop, and ping
[16:26:57] <taiden> and set up my latency in stepconf about 25% higher than my findings with that
[16:27:18] <awallin> that what was someone else was reporting on the list also? that latency-test runs fine but linuxcnc complains about realtime-errors?

[16:30:14] <mrsun> isnt that a matter of how the delays in stepconf is setup ?

[16:30:38] <taiden> i believe it matters if the delay exceeds your settings
[16:30:47] <taiden> then it gives that dialog
[16:31:00] <mrsun> yeah thats what i ment =)
[16:31:01] <taiden> i came up with my settings by doing to aforementioned 18 hour stress test
[16:31:13] <taiden> i am not sure how else to come up with the numbers to use
[16:31:37] <taiden> i believe something strange is happening that is causing a single spike of latency and apparently my 18 hour test didn't capture that
[16:32:02] <taiden> so short of crossing my fingers and hoping i don't wreck parts again i'm not sure what to do at this point
[16:32:11] <awallin> latency-test and linuxcnc don't necessarily measure the same thing. I think that was the conclusion from the discussion on the list.
[16:32:25] <taiden> alright
[16:32:37] <taiden> hm
[16:32:45] <taiden> i hate to ask this question, is it time for Mach?
[16:32:59] <awallin> but the usual tweaks are bios-settings, possibly "isolcpus" kernel-argument, etc.
[16:33:38] <taiden> yeah but
[16:33:45] <taiden> i have no way to measure these spikes that i know of
[16:33:57] <taiden> since my latency test doesn't record anything about 10k 15k
[16:34:27] <taiden> are there any controllers that interface with emc2 that dont rely on the cpu for stepping timing?
[16:35:09] <awallin> mesa-cards are popular. but you still need reasonable latency on the pc
[16:36:04] <awallin> there is motion-controller.time and motion-controller.tmax which might be monitored
[16:36:15] <awallin> or motion.servo.overruns or motion.servo.last-period
[16:37:08] <awallin> but if you monitor last-period you will just see a big number at the same time as linuxcnc shuts down because of that number. I think..
[16:38:19] <t12> 100ms seems like it'd be a
[16:38:23] <t12> maybe a driver hanging
[16:38:30] <t12> hard drive hanging in ISR?

[16:39:01] <awallin> I got these 155ms delays on one motherboard. repeated every 10 minutes. never figured that out, just changed motherboards.
[16:39:13] <joe9> taiden: check out smi
[16:39:17] <t12> i've seen machines where hard drive io would cause system time lose
[16:39:21] <t12> loss
[16:39:23] <joe9> taiden: what you are talking about seems smi related
[16:39:38] <joe9> taiden: hold on, I take that back
[16:39:48] <joe9> taiden, the 18 hr test should have captured that.
[16:40:24] <JT-Shop> mesa cards like the 5i20 only use the slow thread
[16:40:39] <awallin> but 100ms is a killer even with a mesa card...
[16:41:14] <JT-Shop> [ 2912.484753] This time, there were 226010134 which is so anomalously
[16:41:14] <JT-Shop> [ 2912.484755] large that it probably signifies a problem with your

[17:07:03] <joe9> i have a weird issue. want to check what could be wrong. I bought a taig mill a few months ago. Today, when doing the z touch-off with a round dowel I notice the below behaviour
[17:08:05] <joe9> dowel passes under at Z-4.945 -> Z-4.946 (passes) -> Z--4.947 (does not pass) -> Z-4.946(does not pass) -> Z-4.945(passes)
[17:08:16] <joe9> I repeated the above more than a few times
[17:08:44] <joe9> and do not understand why it would NOT pass with -4.946 on the way up, but the dowel passes on the movement down.
[17:08:54] <joe9> Is something off on my machine.
[17:09:03] <joe9> ?
[17:09:07] <joe9> any thoughts, please?
[17:09:28] <joe9> I did not use the machine much but for a few hours, in total.
[17:09:35] <Jymmm> backlash?
[17:09:49] <Jymmm> do you have a dial indicator?
[17:09:53] <joe9> 0.001inch backlash seems to be high, don't you think?
[17:09:53] <JT-Shop> backlash
[17:10:02] <joe9> Jymmm: yes, I have a dial indicator.
[17:10:11] <JT-Shop> acme screws?
[17:10:21] <joe9> is that acceptable backlash? on a few month old machine?
[17:10:24] <Jymmm> joe9: Toss it on your Z and run some cycles
[17:10:37] <JT-Shop> acme screws?
[17:11:01] <joe9> JT-Shop: i did not change anything. they are the factory screws.
[17:11:19] <Jymmm> joe9: Are the factory screws acme or ballnut?
[17:11:26] <joe9> btw, before I start worrying about this, Should this be a worrisome issue?
[17:11:27] <JT-Shop> are they acme or ball screws?

[17:12:13] <JT-Shop> check to see if you have a 1/2 nut and if it is loose due to you just getting the screw and nut broken in

[17:17:41] <joe9> Jymmm: ok, thanks.
[17:17:55] <joe9> JT-Shop: will check if there is any adjustment around.
[17:18:32] <IchGuckLive> dont tight to hard jo
[17:19:35] <joe9> i have a starret edge finder. Two times, I think I went too close to the edge and the bottom edge contacting portion unscrewed itself.
[17:20:00] <joe9> I pulled out the spring and screwed the bottom portion back in.
[17:20:26] <joe9> It still seems to work. Not sure if you would still consider it a "good" edge finder?
[17:20:33] <joe9> or, would you recommend trashing it?
[17:21:06] <IchGuckLive> if it works for you its ok
[17:21:13] <joe9> i am not a machinist. I find that instead of relying on the noise of the edge finder, putting a finger at the edge finder joint is more reliable.
[17:21:46] <joe9> when the lower portion is out of alignment from the top portion and I can feel it with the finger, I know that I have reached the edge.
[17:21:52] <joe9> Is this a good practice?
[17:21:53] <JT-Shop> joe9: if it is repeatable it might be fine
[17:22:35] <joe9> yes, other than similar behaviour (Z-4.945 -> Z-4.946 (passes) -> Z--4.947 (does not pass) -> Z-4.946(does not pass) -> Z-4.945(passes)) on all axes, it is repeatable.
[17:22:39] <joe9> JT-Shop: ^^
[17:22:42] <IchGuckLive> repeatable is the goal
[17:22:47] <joe9> ok, thanks.
[17:22:57] <JT-Shop> when I use an edge finder max RPM is 1000, slowly move till the bottom jumps to the side and your done

[17:23:50] <joe9> JT-Shop: mine is not jumping to the side. I can feel it with my finger but there is no jump.
[17:23:53] <JT-Shop> also check for loose thrust bearings if you have any
[17:24:03] <joe9> until I get too far, then it makes the noise.

[17:28:12] <joe9> thanks.

[17:29:25] <taiden> hey guys sorry had to go afk
[17:29:31] <taiden> on the 18 hour test i did abuse video
[17:29:33] <taiden> did not abuse harddrive
[17:29:39] <taiden> i am considering the harddrive at this point
[17:29:52] <taiden> is there a stress test method for harddrives i can run while doing latency test?
[17:30:13] <IchGuckLive> copy 4GB around
[17:30:16] <joe9> JT-Shop: for the z-axis, i did not have a dowel and used the edge finder as the dowel.

[17:33:40] <IchGuckLive> do you realy need lower

[17:33:59] <IchGuckLive> or just for fun taiden
[17:34:01] <joe9> instead of a dowel

[17:45:25] <taiden> this may actually be a trivial fix
[17:45:26] <t12> the number should stay fairly stable
[17:45:40] <taiden> i think i may have screwed up somethign really simple previously
[17:45:50] <t12> run that while dd i think
[17:45:50] <t12> oh
[17:45:58] <t12> what?
[17:46:02] <IchGuckLive> taiden: whar do you mill more then 17+ hr
[17:46:09] -!- Connor [Connor!~Connor@] has joined #linuxcnc
[17:46:14] <taiden> yeah
[17:46:17] <taiden> this is pretty ridiculous
[17:46:31] <taiden> so apparently i fed stepconf my servo thread numbers
[17:46:35] <taiden> instead of my basethread numbers
[17:46:48] <IchGuckLive> i made only a 9hr full speed test with last move to the dials
[17:46:49] -!- pred2k3 has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
[17:46:55] <taiden> so i had it specced slightly below actual base thread jitter
[17:47:34] <IchGuckLive> at steppers it will stay at 100k
[17:48:47] <IchGuckLive> taiden: did you go with G5430 setup
[17:48:54] <taiden> yes
[17:48:54] <IchGuckLive> G540
[17:48:58] <taiden> nice controller
[17:49:22] <IchGuckLive> so change to other and go with double numbers
[17:49:38] <taiden> 17,000 jitter, 25000 min base period, 40000 Hz max step rate
[17:49:41] <taiden> seem to be what im going to use
[17:49:46] <IchGuckLive> thats still fast for every mashine
[17:50:07] <taiden> which ini file are these numbers contained within?
[17:50:09] <taiden> hal?
[17:50:27] <IchGuckLive> taiden: if you look into them you will see more
[17:50:40] <IchGuckLive> base 100k and servo 1mio
[17:51:09] <taiden> ?
[17:51:18] <IchGuckLive> look into the ini
[17:51:44] <taiden> is it CYCLE_TIME that i am changing?
[17:51:47] <taiden> to 0.017
[17:51:53] <IchGuckLive> no
[17:52:05] <IchGuckLive> cycle time is not to be changed
[17:52:17] <taiden> EMCMOT = motmod
[17:52:17] <taiden> COMM_TIMEOUT = 1.0
[17:52:17] <taiden> COMM_WAIT = 0.010
[17:52:17] <taiden> BASE_PERIOD = 30000
[17:52:17] <taiden> SERVO_PERIOD = 1000000
[17:52:28] <IchGuckLive> there is the issue
[17:52:41] <taiden> i'm not seeing it :(
[17:52:53] <IchGuckLive> get the Base to 50k
[17:53:12] <taiden> shouldn't it be 25,000?
[17:53:20] <IchGuckLive> it has always to be a devision of servo
[17:53:21] <taiden> based on what stepconf told me
[17:53:32] <IchGuckLive> double it
[17:53:53] <taiden> i thought that was min base period
[17:53:56] <taiden> ?
[17:54:09] <IchGuckLive> Base 50k and your done
[17:54:26] <taiden> ok so base 50k
[17:54:31] <taiden> what about comm_wait
[17:54:32] <IchGuckLive> also double the gecko 540 values and your good
[17:54:37] <taiden> huh?
[17:54:48] <taiden> that makes no sense
[17:54:57] <taiden> not to be rude but anyone else care to chime in here?
[17:55:08] <IchGuckLive> with 10k steps per second
[17:56:43] <taiden> alright
[17:56:46] <taiden> i changed that to 50k
[17:56:57] <taiden> now how can I change my jitter time?
[17:57:02] <IchGuckLive> the Gecko is on the min requirerments timing as it is the fastest but i woudt not go for that on 17+Hr working

[23:33:53] <joe9> taiden: have you thought about using a ram linux image, ramdisk, if you suspect that it is the hard disk?
[23:36:32] <r00t4rd3d> did you update anything?
[23:36:41] <taiden> didn't touch anything

[23:36:46] <taiden> started it up
[23:36:54] <taiden> now it does this
[23:37:00] <taiden> also
[23:37:15] <taiden> i havne't tried a ram linux image, but i did test latency while creating large blank files
[23:37:20] <taiden> and it had zero effect on latency
[23:37:48] <taiden> i can purchase an atom
[23:37:56] <taiden> but the bigger issue is time
[23:38:02] <r00t4rd3d> run the livecd and see what happens with that
[23:38:22] <r00t4rd3d> or try a fresh install of everything
[23:38:33] <taiden> i'm wondering if mach3 is better suited to small production environment?
[23:39:06] <r00t4rd3d> never tried it
[23:40:39] <taiden> it just pinkles my wrenis
[23:40:46] <taiden> that this setup was working flawlessly

[23:41:29] <r00t4rd3d> reinstall it all and see
[23:41:33] <taiden> reinstall
[23:41:44] <taiden> alright
[23:41:52] <r00t4rd3d> you got nothing to lose
[23:41:55] <taiden> i will reinstall
[23:42:05] <taiden> and i will rerun stepconf from fresh

[23:46:54] <r00t4rd3d> then this for memory:

[23:47:00] <r00t4rd3d> 15 bucks fills it
[23:49:57] <taiden> what are you using for storage again?

[23:50:38] <r00t4rd3d> that is the case you might also want, then its ready to go
[23:51:05] <r00t4rd3d> minus harddrive or what ever
[23:51:39] <r00t4rd3d> do you have a mini itx case already?
[23:52:01] <taiden> nope
[23:52:05] <taiden> only atx stuff
[23:52:12] <taiden> i have a brand new 450w atx power supply haha
[23:52:25] <taiden> would be a shame to waste it
[23:52:31] <Tom_itx> case on newegg is like $39 with psu
[23:52:32] <r00t4rd3d> you can use it
[23:52:49] <r00t4rd3d> you will just need a case that accepts a standard power supply
[23:53:20] <r00t4rd3d> or a atx case that accepts a mini itx board, some do
[23:53:21] <Tom_itx> umm...
[23:54:13] <r00t4rd3d> a 450w power supply is super overkill for a d525 but it will work

[23:54:50] <Tom_itx> same thing

[23:55:08] <r00t4rd3d> w/ shipping
[23:55:20] <r00t4rd3d> 45.99+7.99
[23:55:28] <Tom_itx> i got mine for 39 with free shipping
[23:55:30] <Tom_itx> same case
[23:55:58] <r00t4rd3d> i think you have to spend over 100 to get free ship
[23:56:20] <Tom_itx> no it was advertised that way then
[23:56:24] <r00t4rd3d> oh
[23:56:35] <Tom_itx> i like the case
[23:56:40] <r00t4rd3d> i had one
