[00:04:43] <andypugh> He mentioned 1-wire, but it seems that voltage sensors are scarce.
[00:04:55] <PCW> you can get 300 baud serial the the lousiest (and cheapest) of OPTOs
[00:05:05] <andypugh> On a boat there will be a common ground, I think.
[00:05:28] <L84Supper> last year was supposedly the time when smartphone dongles were supposed to take off, people we making all sorts of remote sensors
[00:05:50] <L84Supper> use a phone for remote monitoring
[00:05:55] <andypugh> I have the impression he was not wanting to design PCBs
[00:06:12] <andypugh> L84Supper: Links?
[00:06:23] <Valen> andypugh: what voltage is the system?
[00:06:34] <L84Supper> andypugh, from what I've seen they never became real
[00:06:52] <L84Supper> andypugh, is that the sort of thing that he needs?
[00:07:48] <andypugh> Probably 12V, possibly 24V, but large resistors exist for voltage division.

[00:19:52] <L84Supper> FinboySlick, portwell?
[00:20:06] <jdh> I ordered one of those. They have an 18bit version also, but it's slow
[00:20:38] <FinboySlick> L84Supper: Yeah. I had a couple projects and while the hardware was spot-on, I couldn't justify the costs. I'm sure they're better on larger runs though.
[00:20:44] <L84Supper> good enough to monitor batteries
[00:21:36] <jdh> monitoring lead acid batteries for voltage doesn't tell you much about their health
[00:22:16] <L84Supper> FinboySlick, yeah, like most of the embedded vendors
[00:23:22] <L84Supper> FinboySlick, lots of low cost, decently made embedded boards from China are not sold outside of China
[00:23:58] -!- spamftw [spamftw!~spamftw__@24-183-100-210.dhcp.mdsn.wi.charter.com] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:25:32] <FinboySlick> Hehe, I have no love for china tonight... I'm working on getting that Z axis perpendicular again.
[00:25:56] <spamftw> Hey all. A few friends and I have converted over a mini mill from a Jaiman controller board to LinuxCNC controlled. Our current hurdle is that the bed is a bit uneven and would be very difficult to flatten. I'm curious if anyone has had experience/tips regarding mapping the bed of a mill
[00:29:23] <L84Supper> like using a laser micrometer mounted on the spindle?
[00:31:10] <jdh> probe the bed in a grid, save the heights, run a post-processor over your gcode to adjust the z heights
[00:31:36] <jdh> most of that has been done for pcb milling
[00:31:52] <Valen> put milling bit in mill, mill bed flat
[00:31:57] <Valen> be sure your right ;->
[00:32:05] <cradek> you have to consider what your goal is
[00:32:31] <jdh> always fix hardware with software.
[00:32:34] <spamftw> what we had looked at was not that high tech no. L84Supper. jdh, I think were on the same lines. unfortunatly Valen, the bed of the mill is slightly larger than the cuttable area
[00:32:38] <jdh> or is that never fix hardware with software.
[00:32:49] <cradek> flexible vs stout work seems like it would need to have different kinds of compensation
[00:32:59] <Valen> put a bigass face cutter in ;->
[00:33:20] <L84Supper> just be sure to be square first
[00:33:31] <cradek> a bogus mill can't mill itself flat
[00:33:59] <Valen> depends whats not flat
[00:34:24] <toastyde1th> "flat" generally refers to the load free path of the machine
[00:34:28] <cradek> imagine a bicycle wheel where your table is. you cut all around the wheel nice and even, but that doesn't make your table flat or allow you to cut flat things
[00:35:34] <L84Supper> so what I think you're saying is get a better mill that is flat and square
[00:35:54] <cradek> or measure your errors and know that they are your machine's tolerance
[00:36:09] <toastyde1th> either get a better mill or be prepared to jack the part around to cut flat
[00:36:10] <cradek> for certain jobs you can do better if you must, by thinking hard about your setup
[00:36:57] <spamftw> sorry, alot to take in? what are arguments against mapping the bed like jdh had mentioned?
[00:36:58] <cradek> but blindly cutting the top of the table or doing some other rash thing is just not going to help you do better work
[00:36:59] <toastyde1th> if you bolt clamps to the part, and then clamps to the table on top of shims, you can physically deform the part so that as the table flexes and axes move, the part is in the correct place
[00:37:13] <toastyde1th> by adding and removing shims
[00:37:17] <toastyde1th> this is done in grinding all the time
[00:37:58] <cradek> spamftw: ok say you map the table (say it's a sine wave) and "compensate" for that in software (by adding it to Z or something)
[00:37:59] <toastyde1th> spamftw, by mapping the bed, you know where the spindle is relative to the table ONLY for that particular table position
[00:38:02] <L84Supper> spamftw, like cradek said earlier, it depends on what you're actually trying to do
[00:38:13] <cradek> now set a nice granite surface plate on the table and face it off
[00:38:17] <toastyde1th> the rest of the table is actually in a physically different place from your map
[00:38:28] <Valen> it still depends on whats not flat
[00:38:53] <Valen> if the ways are wavy then sure, but if the table itself isn't flat and the ways are perfect then milling the bed flat is an option
[00:38:54] <cradek> now you have a surface plate that's as wavy as your table - what good does that do you?
[00:39:22] <cradek> Valen: yes understanding the machine and the work it needs to do is the first step, not cutting things
[00:39:41] <spamftw> Alright, I see what you guys are saying.
[00:40:45] -!- kmiyashiro has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
[00:42:57] <toastyde1th> and you really can set the machine up for small errors if you really care about flatness
[00:43:04] <L84Supper> play in the ways or spindle, table not flat, etc etc
[00:43:12] <spamftw> so if it happens that the bed is flat, but the spindle track is the issue? then mapping may be the best idea
[00:43:28] <toastyde1th> I used to have to cut very flat things and by using shims, could do way better than the machine's tolerance as long as the error was repeatable
[00:43:37] <toastyde1th> "spindle track?"
[00:44:23] <spamftw> Yes, sorry? the mill is setup like this
[00:44:24] <spamftw> http://image.ec21.com/image/szelian/oimg_GC04178517_CA04178657/SC2518_Mini_CNC_Router.jpg
[00:44:31] <toastyde1th> z axis
[00:44:48] <L84Supper> gantry mill
[00:45:01] <toastyde1th> you should be able to unbolt and align the head
[00:45:17] <toastyde1th> but tramming a mill is not trivial if you don't understand what has to be checked first
[00:46:03] <spamftw> as the head moves down as it rides to the left of the track (in the last 2 inches), so i'm not sure we can just align it at any one position
[00:46:38] <toastyde1th> that sucks and is something you can't really fix outside knowhow and a lot of elbow grease, or software
[00:46:53] <toastyde1th> for that particular error, software is the best bet since it's a very repeatable and consistent error
[00:47:32] <toastyde1th> if your machine is linear rails, those unbolt too
[00:48:05] <spamftw> got it. got a few more questions but wanted to take the chance to thank you guys for all your help and patience
[00:48:07] <toastyde1th> but unbolting the ways of a machine is a bit of a hail mary if you can get the error down to something you are okay with
[00:48:11] <toastyde1th> with software
[00:48:11] <Valen> tramming with a non flat bed would be challenging ;->
[00:48:36] <toastyde1th> not really
[00:48:49] <toastyde1th> same as tramming a head without unbolting a fixture
[00:49:04] <Valen> you need to be square to something, one generally assumes that the bed is square and lines up to that
[00:49:21] <spamftw> tramming is the process by which the z is mapped?
[00:49:28] <toastyde1th> bed isn't the greatest to begin with although for mostly accurate tramming it's quick and easy
[00:49:48] <Valen> tramming is making sure the mill head is square to the work your cutting
[00:49:48] <toastyde1th> most accurate is to set up a parallel or straightedge on the machine axis suspended 1/4 of the way in from the ends
[00:49:59] <andypugh> spamftw: If you _know_ that your bed is going to win over the work every time (for example a vacuum table and a PCB) then there is a kinematics module for LinuxCNC that models the surface in STL format and compensates.
[00:50:16] <toastyde1th> zero an indicator on one support, travel to the other, and zero the indicator by shimming or jacking the parallel up
[00:50:28] <Valen> so if you do a set of overlapping cuts it wont have a zig-zag pattern on the cut
[00:50:37] <spamftw> andypugh, any link you could point me to for more information on that one?
[00:50:42] <toastyde1th> then you have something quite prallel to the ways without worrying about bed condition or having a bigass fixture on the table
[00:50:43] <spamftw> or anything I should search for
[00:50:44] <andypugh> But in general the bed deforms the work and the work deforms the bed and the proporions of distortion vary.
[00:51:26] <L84Supper> spamftw, is that how the bed is mounted? moves in X on rails? and the spindle moves in Y and Z
[00:52:14] <spamftw> The bed moves in Y, the spindle travels on a rail in X, and the spindle moves on Z
[00:52:50] <andypugh> That's a slightly unfortunate combination.
[00:53:33] <spamftw> andy, in our case I'd say bed will win over work. we've got full size mills for the more hefty work? I think everyone is just excited at the chance at pcbs. If we need a vacuum table and to dedicate the machine to that, I'm sure that wouldn't be too big of a sell
[00:53:39] <andypugh> A knee-mill layout works fine as long as the bed is flat and parallel to the X ways.
[00:55:09] <cradek> knee mills tend to be part bicycle wheel
[00:55:37] <toastyde1th> agree with bike wheel
[00:56:04] <toastyde1th> there's a reason jig grinders are all gantry or C frame bed machines
[00:59:07] <spamftw> andypugh, was the module you refered to probe2stl
[00:59:11] <andypugh> The Deckel/Aciera/(too long on lathes.co.uk looking for the name) style sliding Y head mills are a lot less forgiving of way divergence, but luckily are all top-class machines
[00:59:34] <L84Supper> what do people do for vias and through holes when cnc routing a two layer PCB?
[00:59:50] <cradek> cry a bit and then try to avoid them
[01:00:10] <toastyde1th> womp womp wommmmp
[01:00:24] <cradek> sometimes solder them manually in a fit of desperation
[01:00:52] <andypugh> L84Supper: Rivlets?
[01:02:29] <spamftw> Alright, I think I'll start here http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ProbeKins. Thanks again for all the help all

[03:29:55] <tjb1> Anyone?
[03:31:04] <jdh> no.
[03:31:16] <tjb1> No what? :P
[03:33:36] <jdh> no, you can't.
[03:34:10] <tjb1> Im sure there is a way…its just more involved than anything I would like to do
[03:34:33] <jdh> if you have a probe and it goes off during a none probe move, it whines
[03:34:34] <FinboySlick> tjb1: Well, you could put it in series with your limit switches.
[03:34:49] <tjb1> FinboySlick: but then it would trip a limit when probing
[03:34:55] <jdh> if you did that and probed, you would trip
[03:35:12] <FinboySlick> I probably misunderstood what you meant then.
[03:35:32] <tjb1> If the switch is tripped when not probing, i want it to act as a limit
[03:35:49] <tjb1> I could make the g38 set an output to switch which input that sensor goes to
[03:36:12] <tjb1> g38 active, it sends that sensor to input 2, g38 inactive and that sensor goes to input1
[03:36:38] <jdh> I think it will stop if the probe trips during a non-probe move.
[03:36:44] <jdh> but, it might just whine
[03:36:51] <tjb1> No it just throws a little message
[03:37:17] <tjb1> I like the relay idea…dirty though
[03:38:24] <jdh> control.c:404: reportError(_("Probe tripped during non-probe MDI command."));
[03:38:32] <jdh> change that
[03:38:37] <tjb1> Where is that...
[03:38:54] <jdh> control.c
[03:39:05] <tjb1> gotta be more specific than that :)
[03:39:37] <tjb1> Or do you mean press control-c
[03:39:53] <tjb1> Well I guess that is copy on linux/windows...nevermind
[03:40:36] <jdh> it's in the source code. snag a copy, edit, rebuild everything
[03:41:13] <jdh> someday, I'll make a probe.

[03:42:18] <jdh> put in a throw switch. one way is probe, other is limit
[03:42:27] <jdh> s/throw/double throw/
[03:42:54] <tjb1> Ill just do a relay
[03:42:56] <tjb1> :)
[03:43:23] <tjb1> It probes every time it pierces so I dont want to sit there and switch it on and off all the time
[03:44:58] <jdh> wonder if you could just do it in HAL
[03:45:26] <jdh> probably with two ands
[03:46:13] <jdh> input and probing tied to probe input, input and notprobing tied to limit
[03:46:31] <jdh> and an mcode to setp probing
[03:48:48] <tjb1> can you use if statements in hal?
[03:50:02] <jdh> not that I know of, but that doesn't mean much.
[03:50:31] <jdh> you don't need to use an if if you just make the probe signal from an AND component
[03:51:23] <jdh> man and2
[03:51:38] <tjb1> and component
[03:51:39] <tjb1> ?
[03:51:50] <jdh> and2... type man and2

[03:52:20] <jdh> heh, or that.
[03:54:30] <tjb1> net torch-probe motion.probe-input <= parport.0.pin-11-in-not
[03:54:44] <tjb1> That is my probing input
[03:57:20] <tjb1> Is the N the pin name?
[03:57:46] <jdh> what N?
[03:58:00] <tjb1> and2.N.in0 bit in
[03:58:11] <jdh> oh, it is the instance of the and2
[03:58:36] <tjb1> Can you give example
[03:58:41] <jdh> if you loadrd and2 count=2, you will have a and2.0... and and2.1...
[03:59:31] <tjb1> count 3 would make 2.0, 2.1, 2.2
[03:59:42] <tjb1> then 2.3 would be the out bit?
[03:59:44] <jdh> and2.0, and2.1, and2.2
[04:00:05] <jdh> for the first one, the two inputs would go to and2.0.in0 and and2.0.in1
[04:00:16] <jdh> and when both became true, and2.0.out would be true
[04:00:42] <tjb1> Is this correct "and2.0.torch-probe"
[04:00:47] <jdh> no
[04:00:55] <tjb1> Of course not :)
[04:01:08] <jdh> it is just and2.0.[in0,in1,out]
[04:01:31] <tjb1> So where would I put the input pins?
[04:01:35] <tjb1> or name them?
[04:01:43] <jdh> you have to net your pport pin to .in0, then net your probing pin to and2.0.in1
[04:02:25] <jdh> then when you setp your probing pin, and the probe goes off, that and2.0.out becomes true
[04:02:40] <jdh> another and2 would do the same for the limit
[04:03:56] <tjb1> Can you give me an example of tying the probe to it?
[04:03:59] <jdh> no
[04:04:12] <tjb1> :/
[04:04:12] <jdh> but, you could ask someoen with a clue when they show up.
[04:04:18] -!- FinboySlick has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[04:05:46] <tjb1> Well until then im just going to activate an output before the probe and then deactivate it after the probe is done
[04:06:33] <jdh> extra hardware, but I could make that work!

[15:42:15] <jdh> yeah, I thought about those. 4.3 might fit better, but was hoping the 7" would be more readable
[15:42:47] <jdh> and just tap for ctrl anyway

[20:16:05] <andypugh> tjb1: Possibly or2, rather than and2

[20:27:49] <andypugh> You can probably use the "logic" HAL function to give you both the OR and AND outputs.
[20:29:14] <andypugh> PCW: Do you think that Mesaflash (micges's thing, I think) should be included in the LinuxCNC source?
[20:29:24] <PCW> Yes
[20:29:47] <PCW> but he has the latest source
[20:30:56] <PCW> or maybe in the firmware bundle
[20:31:57] <andypugh> Hmm, yes, maybe it lives in /lib/firmware/hm2/5i25...
[20:32:06] <andypugh> The executable at least.
[20:32:08] <PCW> latest version can flash the 7I80 over Ethernet
[20:32:45] <PCW> and the 6I25 including 6I25 recovery mode
[20:33:30] <PCW> so its more generic than just 5I25
[20:35:25] <PCW> lib/firmware/hm2/tools?
[20:35:49] <andypugh> Possibly. There may be rules though.
[20:36:21] <PCW> I think there are RPO and WPO included with mesaflash there as well
[20:36:39] <andypugh> RPO and WPO?
[20:37:58] <PCW> direct register read and write utilities for hardware debugging
[20:38:33] <PCW> Read with Pci Offset
[20:38:35] <PCW> Write with Pci Offset
[20:39:20] <andypugh> OK. Not directly useful to tonights task then.
[20:39:39] <PCW> RPO 6800
[20:39:41] <PCW> WPO 1204 00AACC33
[20:39:50] <andypugh> Just wanted to check prior to any wheel-reinventing
[20:40:30] <PCW> mesaflash is _interesting_ as the source is Linux and Windows compatible
[20:41:10] <andypugh> That's just showing off, that is.
[20:41:37] <PCW> Micges did a good job
[20:42:50] <PCW> I dont think there are any major side effects to upper level code
