[00:00:07] <andypugh> ds3: Transistors are fine for Fwd-Rev
[00:00:19] <ds3> andypugh: eh?
[00:00:32] <ds3> thinking of for/rev by swapping the polarity to the motor
[00:00:40] -!- logger[mah] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:00:41] <ds3> you'd need a H bridge, wouldn't you?
[00:00:47] -!- logger[mah] [logger[mah]!~loggermah@mail.mah.priv.at] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:00:50] <andypugh> So, centre-off relay?
[00:00:55] <ds3> DPDT
[00:01:13] <ds3> the chipitself is easy enough to debug...
[00:01:18] <ds3> SOICs are nice like that
[00:01:22] <ds3> to deadbug I mean
[00:02:34] <ds3> andypugh: www.sherline.com/reverse.htm
[00:03:10] <andypugh> Anyway, What power is that Sherline spindle?
[00:03:19] <ds3> around 1/4hp
[00:03:37] * Loetmichel gets the cramps whenever one modifies such a DC drive that way
[00:03:59] <Loetmichel> i dont like power PWM to a motor get switched.
[00:04:30] <Loetmichel> tends to burn the switch contacts AND burn the transostors in the control
[00:04:30] <andypugh> I know you _think_ you only want 125W, but as someone else said, nobody has _ever_ complained of too much spindle power.
[00:04:53] <Valen> whoever said that was awesome
[00:05:09] <Loetmichel> ds3: the 800W 3pha watercollend can be EASILY stopped with a 1/2" mill bit
[00:05:10] <Valen> 125w crap thats less than a dremel\
[00:05:13] <andypugh> Too much noise, too much vibration, yes.
[00:05:16] <ds3> I have a 1/4hp spindle right now
[00:05:30] <Loetmichel> so i wont like a 120W spindle on a mill :-)
[00:05:33] <ds3> Loetmichel: I've stopped a 3/4" bit with a 2hp spindle before
[00:05:50] <ds3> note - my spindle can only do 1/4" cutters anyways
[00:05:50] <Loetmichel> thats what i meant
[00:05:51] <Tom_itx> andypugh i've used seeed in the past as well
[00:06:29] <Tom_itx> how big is the board?
[00:06:39] * Loetmichel also fritcion-welded a TC 1/8" bit to the vice accidentally ;)
[00:06:41] <andypugh> My 2hp spindle at lowest speed (47 rpm) is probably capable of hauling in the moon. I have no idea what that speed range is for.
[00:06:45] <Tom_itx> laen does $5/sq in for prototypes
[00:07:07] <Loetmichel> andypugh: threading?
[00:07:14] <andypugh> Tom_itx: This would be about 1"2
[00:07:15] <ds3> andypugh: for those 20diameter cutters in tool steel ;)
[00:07:19] <ds3> 20"
[00:07:36] <andypugh> Loetmichel: It's a mill
[00:07:37] <Valen> doing weird stuff
[00:07:52] <JT-Shop> http://s307.beta.photobucket.com/user/BrianRupnow/media/CONTINUATION%20OF%20MAIN%20ALBUM1/SAWMILLDRIVENBYWEBSTER.mp4.html
[00:07:58] <Valen> we use our lathe at that sort of speed to centrifugally cast things
[00:07:59] <JT-Shop> http://s307.beta.photobucket.com/user/BrianRupnow/media/CONTINUATION%20OF%20MAIN%20ALBUM1/SAWMILLDRIVENBYATKINSON.mp4.html
[00:08:04] <andypugh> With the VFD I can use the spindle as a clock :-)
[00:09:06] <Loetmichel> s/thrading/tapping
[00:09:08] <Loetmichel> better?
[00:09:16] <ds3> you sure trust the clocks on your PC ;)
[00:09:26] <andypugh> 47 rpm. Not 47 rps..
[00:10:17] <ds3> looks like indeed the sherline can take a 0-10V signal
[00:10:45] <andypugh> JT-Shop: http://social.ford.com/your-ideas/technologies/green/inverted-atkinson-cycle-in-ford-ecoboost-engines/

[00:12:43] <Tom_itx> andypugh would that interface to an exhisting sherline control?
[00:13:00] <JT-Shop> cool
[00:13:21] <Tom_itx> guess i showed up late to the party :(
[00:13:40] <andypugh> Ford either have, or are about to have, an Atkinson engine in production.
[00:14:04] -!- skunkworks [skunkworks!~chatzilla@str-broadband-ccmts-ws-26.dsl.airstreamcomm.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:14:16] <andypugh> Tom_itx: Would _what_ interface to a Sherline?
[00:14:26] <Tom_itx> your little circuit
[00:14:57] <ds3> apparently the sherline is a rebranded KBIC controller
[00:14:57] <andypugh> I can't see why not. It is basically a straight replacement for a potentiometer.
[00:15:07] <Tom_itx> nonstocked at mouser
[00:15:24] <ds3> if you're not doing a PCB, I might just dead bug something
[00:15:35] <ds3> and speghetti wire in a dpdt relay
[00:15:49] <andypugh> KBIC contollers float the pot at +DC bus V (120V) but that's OK with that opto.
[00:16:04] <ds3> yep, I like the isolation
[00:16:12] <Tom_itx> $3.63 @ dk
[00:16:25] <ds3> finding a decent isolator is was a stopper for using the sherline control
[00:16:37] <ds3> but motor + controls $230 w/o ebay is a plus
[00:16:45] <jdh> I looked for a DPDT relay for my spindle. Couldn't find one rated for inductive loads that high
[00:16:59] <jdh> well, not for reasonable $$
[00:17:39] <skunkworks> http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/threads/54157-Ethernet-Motion-Controllers
[00:17:45] <ds3> if the spindle is required to be stopped, why would it need to be inductively rated?
[00:18:01] <andypugh> Tom_itx: http://www.alliedelec.com/search/productdetail.aspx?SKU=R1093788
[00:18:15] <Tom_itx> i found it at digikey
[00:18:41] <Tom_itx> 0 can ship immediately
[00:18:48] <andypugh> That's good, as I just noticed that Allied is zero-stock :-)
[00:19:09] <Tom_itx> 199 at dk
[00:19:16] <jdh> I was thinking about spindown time, but I wanted it for rigid tapping so I guess it would spin down almost instantly
[00:19:50] <ds3> don't rigid tapping require an encoder on there as well?
[00:19:56] <jdh> yes
[00:20:02] <Tom_itx> index
[00:20:15] <ds3> I'd love to rigid tap but Z axis is a bit limited
[00:20:26] <ds3> always thought of doing a stepper controlled spindle for tapping
[00:20:33] <Tom_itx> i'd like to try it on the sherline
[00:20:45] <ds3> Tom_itx: u have a sherline?
[00:20:49] <Tom_itx> yes
[00:21:07] <ds3> Tom_itx: do you have the spindle controlled via S and M03/M04 codes?
[00:21:33] <andypugh> skunkworks: PCW really ought to be able to clean up with the 7i80 + Mach.

[00:23:09] <Tom_itx> ds3, i put a ss relay on it
[00:23:17] <Tom_itx> no reverse
[00:23:25] <ds3> on a different thing - how bad of an idea is a dual processor PIII-800MHz for EMC?
[00:23:32] <ds3> Tom_itx: so no speed control either?
[00:23:33] <Tom_itx> speed is manual via the pot
[00:23:41] <ds3> I see
[00:23:52] <Tom_itx> i'm hoping this would replace that pot
[00:24:06] <ds3> Ooooh
[00:24:20] <Tom_itx> then i need a reversing relay
[00:25:46] <Tom_itx> i haven't poked around in it yet
[00:26:50] <jdh> I paid like $50 for my pwm->V speed control from cnc4pc
[00:27:20] <Tom_itx> reverse?
[00:27:38] <jdh> has relay for reverse, but it is signal only
[00:28:53] <ds3> Tom_itx: are you using 1 or 2 parallel ports?
[00:31:16] <Tom_itx> 1 with a 7i43
[00:36:30] <andypugh> 7i43 is cool. Much under-rated in the 5i25 era
[00:36:49] -!- tayy has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:37:04] <Tom_itx> well i got it just before the 5i25 release or i may not have it now :)

[00:40:15] <andypugh> It's got a lot more pins that a 5i25
[00:40:43] <JT-Shop> say goodnight Gracie
[00:47:36] <skunkworks> andypugh: there have been work on the 5i20 - but nothing seems to be happining

[00:55:56] <andypugh> Hitachi VFD and 5i23.
[00:56:15] <Tom_itx> ceramic cap ok?
[00:56:34] <Tom_itx> that would be a pretty small board layout
[00:56:44] <andypugh> (though it is now redundant, as I bought a 7i49)
[00:57:10] <andypugh> Yes. Mine is on a 6x6 dot bit of vero board.
[00:57:12] <Tom_itx> what's the 49 do?

[08:55:01] <_abc_> Hello. Maybe I am just daft, but I can't locate power (Watt) rating for most (all) steppers I am looking at. What is the reason for this?
[08:55:31] <_abc_> F.ex. I find current ratings and ohms ratings, so I assume one can compute Ptot = 2 * I^2 * R
[08:55:36] <_abc_> 2 for two phases on
[08:55:52] <_abc_> Where I is Irms when chopped and R is Rphase coil resistance.
[08:56:18] <_abc_> Why don't makers give the real tolerated heat power on the unit? Such as is customary in all electronic parts and assemblies?
[08:57:29] <_abc_> For example, I get a puny 7.68W for 0.4A 24Ohm NEMA23 steppers using that calculation, yet the steppers get so hot they reek of plastic when run at that power level.
[08:58:12] <_abc_> Surely the makers have some better ideas on the heat load allowed on their motors? And certainly test this? I don't think the likes of Sanyo and so on leave such "details" for the customer to test (and cuss about).
[08:58:55] <_abc_> Then I find NEMA23 rated 165 Watts. Which is not reasonable without considerable forced cooling.
[08:59:38] zz_satyag is now known as satyag
[08:59:43] <_abc_> CAN one assume that such a motor is rated for P=2*I^2*R or not?
[09:00:24] <_abc_> F.ex. also for NEMA23 I get for a 3A motor with 2 ohm windings, 36W, which is sort of okay excepting for the heat issue.
[09:00:28] <_abc_> So which is which?

[11:53:34] <mazafaka> Loetmichel: are you here? do you have several minutes to talk?
[11:54:15] <Loetmichel> yes and no, i am at work
[11:55:02] <mazafaka> I know HSS mill bits, but what are those VHM and others, what types of the alloy are popular nowadays?
[11:58:46] <Loetmichel> VHM= Tungsten carbide... "VollHartMetall" in german
[11:59:36] <Loetmichel> meands they are of TC in whole, no cutting tip of TC soldered to a HSS shaft
[11:59:39] <Loetmichel> means
[11:59:41] <TekniQue> isn't tungsten generally known by its elementary name, Wolfram, in german?
[11:59:50] <Loetmichel> true
[12:00:13] <Loetmichel> but "hartmetall" means only "strong metal"
[12:00:19] <Loetmichel> and is a synonyme for TC
[12:00:55] <Loetmichel> not for tungsten in general
[12:02:15] <Loetmichel> like "widia" drill bits . Thats a (r) from a german company meaning "wie diamant" (= like diamond).
[12:02:46] <Loetmichel> and names a serioes of Concrete drills with a TC plate soldered to a hhss shaft
[12:03:55] <Loetmichel> just "wollframkarbid" (TC) is nowhere to find in german TC mill/drillbit descriptions
[12:04:06] <Loetmichel> :-)
[12:07:03] <TekniQue> I found that out reading the labels on german tool packages

[12:23:50] <mazafaka> TekniQue: and are there the others?
[12:24:59] <mazafaka> TekniQue: What is the price of HSS end mill bit, and VHM mill bit of the same diameter, something less 30 mm or 1 inch?
[12:25:11] <mazafaka> something like 6 vs 60 Euros?
[12:26:50] -!- mackerski has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[12:26:51] mackerski_ is now known as mackerski
[12:27:45] <TekniQue> I don't think there's a tenfold difference
[12:27:47] <Tom_itx> Ti
[12:27:52] <TekniQue> but there is a considerable price difference
[12:28:38] <Tom_itx> they're good until you wear thru the coating
[12:28:53] <Tom_itx> just use carbide
[12:30:32] <Tom_itx> as long as you don't hammer em to death they'll cut faster and wear longer
[12:31:36] <Tom_itx> if you need big cutters use inserts
[12:35:07] <syyl> even a good 6mm TC endmill costs about 50eur ;)

[13:08:04] -!- mackerski has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[13:14:05] <mazafaka> syyl syyl_ws what would be a price for d=25mm VHM end mill, and same of HSS? I'm searching on the Internet, but find various stores for mini drills
[13:15:41] <syyl_ws> last 20mm tc endmill we ordered was about 200bucks
[13:16:01] <syyl_ws> mitsubishi suitable for hard milling
[13:17:08] <syyl_ws> for a hss endmill i dont know
[13:17:14] <syyl_ws> dont have the catalogue right here
[13:17:22] <mazafaka> and 20mm HSS? something like 8 USD?
[13:17:38] <syyl_ws> naa
[13:17:43] <syyl_ws> i think about 50eur
[13:17:46] <mazafaka> maybe 40 USD
[13:17:46] <syyl_ws> coated
[13:18:06] <mazafaka> so, prices are something like that: http://toolinghouse.com/hssendmills-2.aspx
[13:18:11] <mazafaka> it's ok
[13:21:53] <syyl_ws> but on big diameters we go mainly for inserts
[13:27:51] <mazafaka> yeah, starting from 40 mm or so
[13:28:14] <mazafaka> i will not use prices in my report, prices are so different
[13:28:31] <syyl_ws> we run em up from 20mm
[13:32:52] <mazafaka> how many inserts on the circumferens, 4?
[13:34:30] <mazafaka> 20mm end mill bit with inserts could make a game, especially if I would use only low inserts.
[13:37:17] <syyl_ws> 2 or three inserts
[13:37:31] <syyl_ws> but for finishing cuts still a endmill with 6 or more flutes

[13:50:48] <syyl> get one from a real tool dealer

[13:52:52] <MattyMatt> chronos are OK

[14:36:57] <pcw_home> looks like the bulk of the jitter is the 1 ms thread sampling something that takes a roughly fixed time of about 20 usec (display/disk/Ethernet?)
[14:40:26] <SWPadnos_> I noticed that kjournald caused a lot of jitter, every 5 seconds
[14:40:37] <awallin> that is log scale... but there are thes 'bumbps' at +/-10us
[14:40:43] <SWPadnos_> well, it would cause high latency every 5 seconds
[14:41:05] <awallin> I guess if one wanted to really know things one should correlate the high-jitter events with other system logs
[14:41:38] <SWPadnos_> I'd start by looking at how those jitter values are measured
[14:41:46] <SWPadnos_> and latency
[14:42:02] <SWPadnos_> which is too deep a subject to look at right now :)
[14:43:14] <pcw_home> Also there's the issue of when hardware I/O is actually done, which may have worse jitter
[14:43:23] <SWPadnos_> yep
[14:44:03] <SWPadnos_> I actually scoped it on a 5I22 at one point, on the machines that I got down to ~200-2000ns latency
[14:44:25] <pcw_home> (you can always read the CPU timer but I/O.PCI/PCIE/Memory access may be blocked)
[14:44:57] <SWPadnos_> (headless, no network, no journalling, most drivers unloaded, with a cpu hog running on the non-RT core)
[14:45:00] <pcw_home> without video?

[14:45:26] <awallin> I guess the fpga-clock is fairly stable, so one could count and log the number of fpga clock-cycles between IO events ?
[14:45:32] <SWPadnos_> not so useful for the average CNC machine, but it worked for this application
[14:45:51] <SWPadnos_> oh hey pcw_home, I had a problem with one of the 5i22-1.5 I just bought
[14:46:07] <pcw_home> Yeah is suspect DMA to hardware is a main10-100 usec jitter source
[14:46:19] <SWPadnos_> The PCI memory regions weren't getting enumerated properly, so I couldn't program (or use) the board.
[14:46:37] <pcw_home> Thats odd
[14:46:41] -!- Patang [Patang!~freenode@cm-] has joined #linuxcnc
[14:46:53] <SWPadnos_> Is there any way to fix that with the various PCI utilities you provide?
[14:47:18] <pcw_home> I would return it so it can be checked
[14:47:18] <SWPadnos_> yeah, lspci would show several regions, but with either 0 or no address assigned
[14:47:35] <SWPadnos_> ok, will do. should I contact Lily for an RMA?
[14:48:17] <pcw_home> Yes ocassionaly we have found bad EEPROMs, best solution is to replace as re-writing only works for a while
[14:48:22] <SWPadnos_> ah, ok

[14:53:25] <awallin> quite
[14:59:18] <awallin> someone commented on my latency-histogram: ..."bumps centered around a multiple of 10us. This would suggest that there is a 100kHz scheduling (or sampling) clock involved somewhere along the line"
[15:04:52] <pcw_home> the relatively constant region from -10 to 10 suggest a constant delay block being randomly sampled by the 1 ms thread
[15:06:49] <SWPadnos_> awallin: yep, that's the kind of thing I was thinking about when I said that I'd study how the timings are measured
[15:07:23] <SWPadnos_> if there are only -10 and +10 values (no 0 values), then it would be a 50 kHz clock

[15:18:42] <pcw_home> the symmetry is an artifact of using timing deltas rather than time after the hardware interrupt request so the fixed block delay is close to 10 usec
[15:23:08] <awallin> pcw_home: could you have a counter at 10MHz or some other high frequency on the FPGA and with e.g. a loopback wire from one IO pin to another count the number of clock-ticks when the IO pin is wiggled? That would be somewhat independent of the pc-timer and hardware
[15:24:02] <pcw_home> yes its doable without anything special
[15:24:39] <pcw_home> just use the stepgen, set in velocity mode, and read the 32 bit position register, voila

[18:00:59] <IchGuckLive> on BW pictures you can scan your part
[18:01:07] <IchGuckLive> 2D ofcause
[18:01:16] <IchGuckLive> no height only shape
[18:01:41] <IchGuckLive> with a Distance laser you can go 3D
[18:02:06] <IchGuckLive> and with the poin array via Blender3D remesh your part
[18:02:49] <IchGuckLive> this will give you then a 2.5D part XYZ
[18:03:12] <IchGuckLive> with a given waterline height
[18:03:35] zz_satyag is now known as satyag
[18:03:42] <pilla_> Lovely idea, but I don't really need 3D :)
[18:03:46] <IchGuckLive> pilla_: with pypil it is easy to grep corners
[18:05:10] <IchGuckLive> just analyse the center pixel or 2x2 pixel array if it gets Dark or what you say 0-255 hit the point into a array

[18:24:48] <IchGuckLive> Loetmichel: Snow tomorrow as mutch as we can 'Schipp'
[18:25:17] <cpresser> pilla_: openCV might also be a good staring point.
[18:25:31] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: hmm?
[18:25:56] <Loetmichel> i have a "facility manager" who does that for me ;-)
[18:27:00] <Loetmichel> (one of the tenants here has a lowered rent but has to do these chores ;-)
[18:27:28] satyag is now known as zz_satyag
[18:28:11] <IchGuckLive> Loetmichel: he myed love it and is in bed now to shuffel as early the snowflakes fall O.O
[18:28:22] <Loetmichel> anyway i drive a car which can cope with 20 cm snow, despite it is a rear drive ;-)
[18:29:03] <IchGuckLive> no 20 at your location
[18:29:13] <Loetmichel> not even one cm right now
[18:29:23] <Loetmichel> tomorrw: we'll see ;-)
[18:29:29] <IchGuckLive> we got 5 and expect 30 to come
[18:30:24] <Loetmichel> I sometimes wonder how bad some ppl drive... especially in winter.
[18:30:40] <IchGuckLive> all tractors and snow moving viehicles are called to clear the AFB and special runway
[18:31:22] <IchGuckLive> they call the germa as the US may not get in early on snow
[18:31:24] <Loetmichel> i have a Opel Omega Caravan (1,7 ton rear drive, front motor)... and STILL had never a problem on german roads. not here in OF not in W where i was born
[18:32:25] <IchGuckLive> Frankfurt area is not as bad hit as Eifel and pfälzerwald
[18:33:23] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: i lived in Wuppteral some time ago. Like it says in its name: its a (narrow) Valley, with steep side walls
[18:33:42] <IchGuckLive> agree on that
[18:33:47] <Loetmichel> and i never had a proble to climb up the streets
[18:33:51] <IchGuckLive> its a nice place to live
[18:34:19] <Loetmichel> but have seen cars burning rubber on the street without going one cm ;-)
[18:34:26] <Loetmichel> ... as i drove across ;-)
[18:34:51] <IchGuckLive> it is good if you can drive across but if not you are also stock
[18:35:20] <IchGuckLive> no matter he has to pay the 60box for driving without proper wheels
[18:35:21] <Loetmichel> some 300kg steel plates in the back of the car, good winter tyres: all good ;-)
[18:35:35] <IchGuckLive> bad on gas
[18:36:49] <Loetmichel> not a problem, the car uses about 9 liters diesel per 100km, regardless of load ;-)
[18:37:15] <Loetmichel> the 300 kg are not much, the car weights 1,75 tons EMTPY :)
[18:37:48] <Loetmichel> http://www.spritmonitor.de/de/detailansicht/442560.html
[18:37:54] <IchGuckLive> im also on this value E320Tcdi
[18:39:46] <andypugh> I don't think I could live in Germany if you have to be up at 7am to clear the pavements when is snows.
[18:39:53] <Loetmichel> ( thats about 26mpg for our american friends ;-)
[18:40:10] <Loetmichel> andypugh: only one per home ;-)
[18:40:41] <IchGuckLive> andypugh: community bahavier
[18:40:46] <andypugh> Yeah, and I live by myself.
[18:41:08] <Loetmichel> and IIRC the pavement has to be "safe" from 06:00 to 22:00

[18:41:22] <andypugh> And I got up at 0830 on tuesday to find a load of snow had fallen. Came as a complete surprise.
[18:41:23] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: wrong. Law!
[18:44:21] <L84Supper> we grew up with rear wheel drive cars in the US
[18:44:30] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: anyone who owns a house (or premises) adjacient to a pavement HAS to take care that between 06:00 or 07:00 and 22:00 there is NO danger of slipping
[18:44:39] <L84Supper> front wheel drive wasn't popular until the late 70's
[18:44:56] <Loetmichel> and no danger of Roof avalances, too, for that matter ;-)
[18:45:06] <L84Supper> snow was always fun driving
[18:46:06] <Loetmichel> L84Supper: i second that, but the german drivers seem to be unable to cope with it. mots buy 4wd or frond drive because of winter. ;-)
[18:46:15] <Loetmichel> s/ mots/most
[18:46:30] <L84Supper> Loetmichel: are you allowed to just coat the area with salt 10 cm deep all winter to avoid having to shovel snow?
[18:46:36] <Loetmichel> s/german/other german
[18:47:07] <Loetmichel> L84Supper: you have to make sure there is no danger of slipping.
[18:47:15] <L84Supper> Loetmichel: surprising since you have all that driving school, whereas here you can just show up and try to pass the test
[18:47:41] <L84Supper> that must be tough when there is freezing rain
[18:47:44] <Loetmichel> you CAN do that with gravel sand on a flattened snowbed
[18:48:27] -!- leehambley has quit [Quit: leehambley]
[18:48:37] <Loetmichel> most citys here dont allow salt on priovate property OR oficcial grond, beside the autobahns and motorways
[18:51:06] <Loetmichel> L84Supper: and most younger germans woudlnt be allowed to drive a "normal" american truck, because the std drivers license inclides only cars up to 3,5 metric tons + 750kg one axle trailer
[18:51:08] <andypugh> Would have been a challenge this day: http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/j/MSNBC/Components/Photo/_new/pb-120206-freezing-switzerland-3p.photoblog900.jpg
[18:52:19] <Loetmichel> andypugh: hrhr, nice photo ;-)
[18:53:30] <Loetmichel> L84Supper: anything bigger: need a extended license for motorcycle or Truck and/or trailer drive
[18:53:43] <Loetmichel> which can be quite costly
[18:54:43] <Loetmichel> IIRC the truck drivers license (up to 40 tons) with 2 axle trailer costs about 12kEur at the moment
[18:55:13] <Loetmichel> because of the driving school hours that are mandatory to apply to the license
[18:55:25] -!- PCW [PCW!~chatzilla@] has joined #linuxcnc
[18:56:01] <L84Supper> when driving in Germany I could trust that the other drivers will stop at red lights, in the US not so much
[18:56:23] <IchGuckLive> L84Supper: agree on that
[18:56:27] <L84Supper> the driving is pretty bad here, but not as bad as some other places
[18:56:54] <JT-Shop> in Italy aren't stop signs just a suggestion
[18:56:56] <IchGuckLive> Egypt is worse then india
[18:57:12] <L84Supper> I'm getting my drivers license in China next trip, it's sort of a free for all there as well
[18:57:24] <IchGuckLive> italyan love there car
[18:57:51] <andypugh> Hmm, if it snows while you are at work do you have to go home to clear the pavement outside your house?
[18:57:59] <L84Supper> i was surprised to see speed traps in Shanghai on the expressways, the cabs are immune it seems from speeding tickets
[18:58:15] <IchGuckLive> andypugh: you need to organise
[18:58:46] <andypugh> I think I prefer the "pedetrians have to fend for themselves" attitude in the UK.
[18:59:47] <IchGuckLive> in the USA it is cheeper to shoot the people that hurt it on your sidewalk then go to holpital
[19:00:01] <IchGuckLive> O.O

[19:02:08] <L84Supper> since you're pretty much guaranteed to be in one
[19:02:20] <Spida> L84Supper: (A) survive. (B) panick.
[19:02:26] <Spida> :-)
[19:02:49] <andypugh> I found driving in China to be fairly chaotic, except they were _really_ well behaved about traffic lights.
[19:02:50] <IchGuckLive> (c) RUN
[19:03:02] <Loetmichel> Spida: (C) hit the shit out of your opponent :-)
[19:03:26] <andypugh> And their traffic lights are pretty cool, they have count-down timers showing how long until the change.
[19:03:41] <IchGuckLive> yeah thats fun
[19:03:52] <IchGuckLive> not for the walking
[19:03:59] <L84Supper> andypugh: the direction of traffic is merely a suggestion, the red lights are about the same, it's pretty much whoever is bigger gets the right of way
[19:04:04] <IchGuckLive> all starts at 1
[19:04:21] <L84Supper> the audible timers are great
[19:04:25] <IchGuckLive> bu ntin the USA in Florida al with the Automatic shifting also start at once
[19:04:49] <andypugh> L84Supper: No, I found the traffic lights were extremely well obeyed. But almost nothing else was.

[21:23:05] <tom3p> congratulations! is this with feedback? jogging or running gcode?
[21:24:29] <mevon> yes feedback is made every 5ms, could be faster
[21:25:05] <jdh> there is a bridgeport for $1200 a few miles from here :(
[21:25:45] <tom3p> mevon: does the encoder count = stepper ppr? and is it mechanically synchronized?
[21:27:19] <mevon> the cmd-pos is fed to the arduino everytime its updated, in terms of steps to reach, can be updated on the fly, and every 5ms the current position is sent back
[21:29:26] <mevon> the stepping task in the arduino is run every 1ms, steps or not if the step to reach is not met, all in a RTOS implementation of ChibiOS in the arduino
[21:30:08] <tom3p> is the new trajectory target sent from Hal? or did you re-program something in the planner?
[21:33:19] <mevon> nno straight from HAL and motion planner of linuxCNC
[21:33:36] <mevon> without linuxCNC my arduino is not much
[21:34:00] <mevon> though Im thinking of making a version witch interprets gcode
[21:34:36] <mevon> could have a SD slot and be autonomous
