[00:26:08] <Aero-Tec> as someone that suffers from a bad back I feel for you
[00:27:32] <Aero-Tec> for me a very hot and very long bath/tube session does wonders, also popping my back into place
[00:27:54] <Jymmm> Your three favorite syllables... Li Do Derm
[00:28:05] <r00t4rd3d> i slipped on some ice and caught myself before I feel down
[00:28:16] <r00t4rd3d> 30 minutes later and I couldnt move
[00:29:08] <Aero-Tec> when I was young I had to see a chiropractor every other day, found out I could do the same adjustment at night in bed.
[00:29:54] <Aero-Tec> when I really throw it out the hot tubing help to loosen things and I can pop it back in again
[00:29:59] <r00t4rd3d> i was just stuck in bed for like an hour, couldnt roll over or get up, nothing.
[00:30:24] <Jymmm> Hug an exercise ball on the floor, and rock forward and back gently, NEVER side to side.
[00:30:28] <Aero-Tec> how is it now?
[00:31:11] <Aero-Tec> for some cold helps, for me it has always been hot water
[00:31:11] <r00t4rd3d> contemplating going to the hospital.
[00:31:38] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: Get a heating pad?
[00:31:42] <Jymmm> Got?
[00:31:44] <Aero-Tec> chiropractors can work wonders
[00:31:53] <r00t4rd3d> nope, i just put some icy hot on it though
[00:32:07] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: electric blanket?
[00:32:14] <r00t4rd3d> and took some Excedrin Back and Body
[00:32:42] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: Was this at work?
[00:33:05] <r00t4rd3d> yeah at my under the table, off the books job as a sub contractor
[00:33:27] <Aero-Tec> I have a 2 person tub, filling it with hot water so you can float and then relaxing for a few hours, I have been in it for over 5 hours at times

[00:33:58] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: Got insurance I hope.
[00:34:03] <r00t4rd3d> not a lick
[00:34:26] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: bath tub?
[00:34:38] <r00t4rd3d> no way, fraid Ill get stuck
[00:34:54] <tjb1> r00t4rd3d: where are you that you have ice?
[00:35:07] <r00t4rd3d> new york
[00:35:13] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: damp microwaved towel and a plastic bag?
[00:35:28] <Aero-Tec> seeing a good chiropractor and hot baths are cheaper then docs, unless your country has public health
[00:36:52] <r00t4rd3d> is there such thing as a good chiropractor?
[00:36:54] <Aero-Tec> my fear is not being able to get into the tub, not in getting out
[00:37:22] <Aero-Tec> getting out has always been way easier then getting in
[00:37:35] <r00t4rd3d> i knows some pussy like that
[00:37:54] <Aero-Tec> I have had to crawl to the tub and take forever to get in
[00:38:21] <Aero-Tec> lol
[00:38:56] <r00t4rd3d> i got a ton of cnc work to do too
[00:39:05] <Aero-Tec> me too
[00:39:17] <tjb1> r00t4rd3d: than go do it
[00:40:03] <r00t4rd3d> I am going to
[00:40:06] <r00t4rd3d> have to
[00:40:15] <Aero-Tec> also robax platinum also helps
[00:40:23] <Valen> r00t4rd3d: you may have torn some ligaments in there
[00:40:27] <Aero-Tec> what do you make?
[00:40:44] <r00t4rd3d> all kinds of stuff
[00:41:01] <Aero-Tec> gun stuff?
[00:41:05] <Valen> best case is a pulled muscle, that will hurt when your not moving generally
[00:41:14] <r00t4rd3d> signs and keepsake boxes sell the most
[00:41:34] <Valen> a ligament will be achy when not moving but feels like hot knives of pain when you move
[00:41:35] <Aero-Tec> do you have a web site showing off your stuff?
[00:41:56] <r00t4rd3d> no
[00:42:13] <Aero-Tec> how do you show and sell your stuff then?
[00:42:20] <Aero-Tec> ebay?
[00:42:28] <r00t4rd3d> work of mouth mainly
[00:42:31] <r00t4rd3d> word
[00:42:33] <Aero-Tec> cool
[00:43:07] <Valen> worst case you have compressed a vertebrae but that unlikley without the impact
[00:44:04] <Aero-Tec> first he/you will have to find out if heat or cold helps
[00:44:31] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.cnczone.com/forums/diy-cnc_router_table_machines/152794-mdf_madness-8.html
[00:44:39] <Aero-Tec> also muscle relaxants should help as well
[00:44:44] <r00t4rd3d> you can see some of the stuff ive done there
[00:45:21] <Aero-Tec> do you feel any discomfort along your back bone?
[00:45:42] <Aero-Tec> one spot that feel sore ore not right?
[00:45:46] <Aero-Tec> or
[00:46:04] <Aero-Tec> if so you may have put your back out
[00:46:19] <Aero-Tec> chiropractor is your best bet then
[00:46:25] <r00t4rd3d> not in my bone i dont think
[00:46:36] <Valen> they wont touch him without an xray as a rule
[00:47:33] <r00t4rd3d> I sell these like crack rocks in front of the welfare office: http://i.imgur.com/KGp2v.jpg
[00:48:10] <Valen> lol
[00:48:46] <r00t4rd3d> this pain dont go away, I might be at the welfare office

[00:49:50] <Aero-Tec> Valen: where is that?
[00:49:52] <Valen> no free dental though, and i just had a tooth explode, thats going to be spendy
[00:49:54] <Valen> australia
[00:50:09] <Aero-Tec> I am in Canada
[00:50:10] <jdh> drs. and nurses work for free?
[00:50:26] <Valen> which makes all those "if obamacare comes in I'm moving to Australia" twitter statements even funnier
[00:50:29] <Aero-Tec> same here, freeish
[00:50:48] <Valen> jdh, no its paid for as part of taxation
[00:50:54] <Aero-Tec> and no dental
[00:51:06] <Valen> but it means that nobody dies due to a lack of medical care
[00:51:14] <Valen> well in theory
[00:51:20] <jdh> I guess that could e considered a good thing
[00:51:51] <jdh> mine is freeish also, along with dental/vision.
[00:51:52] <Aero-Tec> here it is taxation and you have to but government heath insurance, but it is cheap
[00:52:01] <Aero-Tec> buy
[00:52:24] <Valen> they are pushing private hospital cover here, but it really seems dumb
[00:52:41] <jdh> for premium health care?
[00:52:49] <Valen> kinda
[00:53:03] <Valen> if you have private you can get "elective" stuff done faster
[00:53:13] <Valen> things that aren't life threatining
[00:53:14] <Aero-Tec> it does not seem dumb here
[00:53:23] <Valen> private cover for everything outside hospital makes sense
[00:53:24] <Aero-Tec> here you wait forever to get things done
[00:53:33] <Aero-Tec> some die waiting
[00:53:38] <jdh> I know a guy in BC that got a govt funded vagina
[00:53:43] <jdh> all free.
[00:53:52] <jdh> s/guy/person/ perhaps
[00:53:58] <Valen> some people know how to game the system better than others
[00:54:21] <Aero-Tec> I have waited over 8 months to see a specialist and still waiting
[00:54:33] <Valen> what for?
[00:55:53] <Aero-Tec> been waiting so long I forget what they call them
[00:57:04] <Aero-Tec> endocrinologist
[00:57:09] <Aero-Tec> had to look it up

[01:36:20] <gmouer> have a problem with sample_hold hal component, won't load, believe it is documented wrong in 2.5.1 docs, doc page shows BOTH sample_hold and sample-hold in document, can't be both a minus sign and a underscore, any idea which is correct?
[01:36:56] <gmouer> I used underscore character as per the sample_hold component name in the docs for 2.5.1
[01:37:47] <gmouer> wouldn't load, then I noticed the doc shows the pin names with a minus sign
[01:39:13] <gmouer> here is the doc I am refer to http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man9/sample_hold.9.html
[01:41:11] <jdh> /usr/realtime-2.6.32-122-rtai/modules/linuxcnc/sample_hold.ko
[01:42:28] <jdh> looks like the pin names are - but the comp is _
[01:42:41] <gmouer> yep, bombs out of course
[01:42:51] <jdh> with error message?
[01:43:17] <gmouer> I did a loadrt sample_hold addf sample_hold.0 servo-thread, just that throws a error
[01:44:01] <gmouer> let me look at the screen, believe it was something like "unable to load component"
[01:44:57] -!- ve7it [ve7it!~LawrenceG@S01060014d19d0b68.pk.shawcable.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[01:45:10] <gmouer> "sample_hold.0 not found" is the error message
[01:45:40] <andypugh> gmouer: pin names _should_ all be minus sign. But the component name will always be an underscore as it is also a file-name.
[01:46:51] <andypugh> Easy (ish) way to find out. In a terminal type halrun
[01:46:56] <andypugh> loadrt sample_hold
[01:46:58] <andypugh> show all
[01:47:23] <gmouer> wow, so the doc is right! Thanks Andy! Hal is new to me and I am used to the pin names usually being the same format as the component name, that won't bite me again now !
[01:49:07] <gmouer> still, the error message is strange, I used the underscore for the loadrt and addf lines, yet the "sample_hold.0 not found" message
[01:49:35] <gmouer> seems to be bitching about the component loading, not the pin names

[01:53:03] <PCW> its bitching about the _function_ sample_hold.0 not being there
[01:54:48] <gmouer> ahhh I see now the function is a minus sign too, and I used a underscore
[01:55:25] <gmouer> the addf line needs to be addf sample-hold servo-thread apparently
[01:55:54] <gmouer> only the component name in the loadrt should be a underscore character I believe now
[01:56:22] <jdh> that is what the docs say.
[01:57:34] <PCW> Andy's halcmd all scheme redirected to a cut-paste donor file is a good way to do this
[01:57:40] <gmouer> ok, think I got this under control now, thanks much

[02:01:05] <Tom_itx> by the end you will be a pro
[02:01:30] <gmouer> did it in the show hal config window command line, the loadrt worked and the component loaded
[02:01:58] <gmouer> but the addf sample-hold servo-thread threw a error
[02:04:33] <gmouer> LOL went into the terminal window and entered halcmd loadrt sample_hold rt error, could not open shared memory, segmentation fault

[02:23:19] <Aero-Tec> if you work hard and do well and have the cash, why not have local private clinics?

[03:41:26] <Aero-Tec> lol
[03:41:45] <Jymmm> Aero-Tec: So you're a gigalo and she's your sugar mama?
[03:41:47] <Aero-Tec> my gal does not cost me anything
[03:41:54] <Aero-Tec> lol
[03:41:57] <Aero-Tec> hell no
[03:42:07] <Jymmm> She's your pimp?
[03:42:11] <Aero-Tec> she has her income and I have mine
[03:42:44] <Aero-Tec> we split the bills
[03:43:11] <Aero-Tec> if she wants something, she buys it, some times I will buy it for her
[03:43:19] <tjb1> Last gf I had wanted to go to the movies every weekend
[03:43:32] <Aero-Tec> if I want some thing I buy it, and some times she will buy it as a gift
[03:44:08] <Aero-Tec> and that is bad how?
[03:44:24] <Aero-Tec> was she a druggie?
[03:44:44] <Aero-Tec> nothing wrong with the movies
[03:44:55] <Aero-Tec> together time
[03:45:13] <tjb1> Movies are expensive when your in college and work just the weekends
[03:45:44] <Aero-Tec> it could be worse, she wants you to go to dance class or pottery or some other thing not so fun
[03:46:10] <Aero-Tec> get her to pay her way
[03:46:39] <Aero-Tec> all work and no play is no fun at all
[03:46:49] <Aero-Tec> one needs to live a little
[03:48:02] hdokes|werkin is now known as hdokes
[03:48:39] <Aero-Tec> it is nice that we do not fight over money, she pays her way and has her own money, that way she is not spending mine and complaining about how I spend mine as my spending would compete with her sending
[03:49:30] <Aero-Tec> she does not under stand why I need as many guns as I have, and machines and tooling, but she does not really care
[03:52:09] <Aero-Tec> same as I do not understand why her needs tons of clothes and shows, and fake flowers and glasses and and and. but I do not care, I did not buy most of them
[03:52:18] <Aero-Tec> she
[03:52:31] <Aero-Tec> shoes
[03:52:44] <Aero-Tec> I really need to proof read better

[16:25:08] <Aero-Tec> I am trying to get the new config files to run and they will not
[16:25:41] <Aero-Tec> I copied the dir of a working config
[16:26:03] <Aero-Tec> renamed them each for the new config
[16:27:03] <Aero-Tec> took the starting icon and copied that a few times and renamed and retargeted them
[16:27:10] <Aero-Tec> so this should work
[16:27:12] <Aero-Tec> not
[16:27:42] <Aero-Tec> so why will my new configs not work and the old working config still is working fine?
[16:28:42] <JT-Shop> typpo
[16:28:48] <Aero-Tec> oh and I edited the config files for testing new ways to get the job done
[16:29:03] <Aero-Tec> I looked, looked hard for typos
[16:29:11] <archivist> one small change at a time
[16:30:10] <Aero-Tec> as you can see by my postings typos are one of my specialties, I am what you would call a expert at typos
[16:30:55] <Aero-Tec> so it should work
[16:31:30] <Aero-Tec> I thought it should work, was shocked when it did not
[16:31:49] <Aero-Tec> now the ini has the name of the config in it
[16:32:00] <Aero-Tec> is that used in any way by EMC?
[16:32:37] <Aero-Tec> does it have to match file names or dir names or anything like that?
[16:32:56] <Aero-Tec> there is no error or nothing
[16:32:58] <Loetmichel> mrsun: this way? -> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=344
[16:32:58] <JT-Shop> what was the error message?
[16:33:06] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=335
[16:33:07] <Aero-Tec> it just will not do anything
[16:33:37] <Aero-Tec> like you never clicked the icon
[16:33:41] <JT-Shop> what is your line you use to launch with?
[16:34:41] <cncbasher_> did you rename the new name or folder in the INI
[16:34:46] <Aero-Tec> same as the working one with a small change to the path for the new name of the dir of the new config
[16:34:58] <JT-Shop> can you paste it here?
[16:35:08] <Aero-Tec> now I have spaces in the dir names
[16:35:14] <Aero-Tec> does that matter?
[16:35:20] <cncbasher_> yes
[16:35:23] <archivist> spaces!!!
[16:35:24] <cncbasher_> dont use spaces
[16:35:25] <Aero-Tec> also spaces in the file names
[16:35:34] <archivist> dont do that
[16:35:38] <JT-Shop> spaces are not allowed
[16:35:55] <Aero-Tec> bummer
[16:36:00] <cncbasher_> just use an underscore or dash instead
[16:36:05] <archivist> well they are if you learn to quote
[16:36:08] <Aero-Tec> one thing I like better about windows
[16:36:42] <Aero-Tec> ok
[16:36:46] <Aero-Tec> will fix
[16:36:46] * JT-Shop smacks Aero-Tec with a frozen mackerl for even saying that
[16:36:55] <Aero-Tec> lol
[16:37:21] <Aero-Tec> I hate windows for the most part
[16:37:40] <cncbasher_> JT : did you manage to grab all that was in drop box
[16:37:57] <JT-Shop> I suspect that the file naming is not a Linux thing
[16:37:58] <Aero-Tec> for me it is a necessary evil
[16:38:03] <cncbasher_> just want to make sure you got it all
[16:38:16] <JT-Shop> if you didn't add anything I got it! Thanks!
[16:38:30] <cncbasher_> ok i'll delete it this end
[16:38:50] <JT-Shop> should I copy it to a place outside of dropbox folder?
[16:38:53] <Aero-Tec> so linux is fine with dir and name spaces?
[16:39:18] <JT-Shop> in some ways but not in a terminal
[16:39:46] <cncbasher_> yea i would
[16:40:04] <archivist> you have to quote names with spaces SO DONT DO OT
[16:40:07] <archivist> IT
[16:40:20] <JT-Shop> done on my end
[16:40:30] <Aero-Tec> I just looked at some file names and they have spaces
[16:40:36] <Aero-Tec> ok
[16:40:38] <Aero-Tec> got it
[16:41:06] <archivist> you cannot tell if all the stuff you are using is also fine with spaces
[16:42:17] <archivist> spaces have always been a bad idea because of the confusion between options and the name
[16:44:00] <gene77> Morning all

[17:03:47] <gene77> Hi John
[17:04:16] <gene77> Trying to start from scratch on this encoder setup
[17:05:42] <gene77> when I set position-scale to the # of slots, its off, 1 rps is about 1.2 at the encoder out, thats 39
[17:06:20] <gene77> when I setp it to about 50, its almost dead on
[17:06:35] <gene77> so what is correct?
[17:07:04] <archivist> what is reading the pulses, parallel port or hardware
[17:07:10] <gene77> pport
[17:07:35] <archivist> slow down and try again
[17:08:18] <gene77> 1 rps is pretty slow
[17:08:51] <gene77> and its convenient to measure with a scope
[17:09:07] <gene77> 1 index pulse per second that is
[17:09:13] <archivist> does halscope see the same as a real scope
[17:10:10] <gene77> no
[17:10:57] <gene77> well, lemme qualify that with a test right now, this wiil take about 4 or 5 mins though
[17:12:18] <gene77> this morning it look like it is, yesterday it was off about 3/1
[17:13:28] <gene77> even with a 1 multipier its dead on
[17:14:17] -!- h_munktell has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[17:15:06] <gene77> Ok next is scale for motion-speed-out, is .95 atm for 1 rps, not that far off
[17:15:59] <archivist> there should be no approximate numbers, the system is digital
[17:16:07] <gene77> Bur the next + step will go to 101.95, too much of a change, needs to be about half that
[17:17:19] <gene77> where is that step size changed when I click the +- buttons on the axis screen?
[17:18:03] <archivist> your sampling period will limit the resolution
[17:18:24] -!- Simon2 has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[17:18:25] <gene77> of course, 1 millisec for this

[17:20:31] <gene77> so my acuracy then is .5%

[17:36:11] <IchGuckLive> hi all B)
[17:36:33] <gene77> But scaling is way off. If I enter, in MDI mode, s60 then motion-spindle-speed-out is 6
[17:37:03] <gene77> ah screw it, override was set at 10%
[17:41:36] <gene77> so, motion-spindle-speed-out is in RPS?
[17:42:56] <skunkworks> probably...
[17:44:10] <skunkworks> well - according to this it is rpm... http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/2.5/html/man/man9/motion.9.html
[17:44:56] <skunkworks> there is a separate pin for rps motion.spindle-speed-out-rps
[17:46:51] sliptonic is now known as sliptonic_away
[17:47:14] <gene77> And thats much lower, and gets me down into the digital noise
[17:48:42] <gene77> I need to get the scaling under control, a speed-out=10 s/b in rpms, not almost rps

[17:51:29] <gene77> If I run pid.FF0 up to about 57, then its correct for RPS, not RPMS.
[17:51:52] <gene77> and the pid.error fades to near zero too.
[17:52:25] <gene77> and it is turning 10 rps=600 rpm
[17:53:31] <gene77> that means MDI ot gcode issued speed commands are in RPS?
[17:53:43] <gene77> that means MDI or gcode issued speed commands are in RPS?
[17:54:50] <IchGuckLive> gene did you set g-code preloads into your ini

[19:00:01] <Loetmichel> mrsun: a non-finished project of mine
[19:00:34] <mrsun> ahh looked quite neat but what is the material ? :) like 1mm pcb? :P
[19:00:37] <Loetmichel> state at the moment: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=359
[19:00:39] <IchGuckLive> the prismas are mutch cheeper in germany http://www.paulimot.de/epages/paulimot.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/paulimot/Categories/Prismen
[19:00:56] <Loetmichel> 3mm FR4 without copper
[19:01:21] <Loetmichel> -> about 2 pcbs stacked
[19:01:22] <IchGuckLive> Loetmichel: Ice on the road ?
[19:01:26] <mrsun> ahh =)
[19:02:05] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: no. easy going... but only 2Mbit at the company, yubuntu install with nvidia drivers is a PITA....
[19:02:12] <Loetmichel> so i am a little late ;-)
[19:03:25] <Loetmichel> mrsun: should have been a series of small 400 by 300 by 100mm CNC mills
[19:03:40] <Loetmichel> but accumulating the cost the FR4 is just too expensive
[19:03:56] <mrsun> ahh
[19:04:34] <IchGuckLive> Loetmichel: did you search for turret boad
[19:04:47] <IchGuckLive> there are low cost FR4 3mm plates
[19:04:51] <Loetmichel> i now use "siebdruckplatte" for my newest design, still not finished but a bit more sturdy and cheap as fu** ;-)
[19:05:02] <IchGuckLive> around 10euros for a 500mm sheet
[19:05:11] <Loetmichel> thats expensive
[19:05:37] <Loetmichel> mrsun: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=8872
[19:05:52] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=8884
[19:06:33] <Loetmichel> same construction, 600mm by 400mm movement, dirt cheap to build... (IF you have a cnc mill handy ;-)
[19:07:27] <IchGuckLive> compare to 2years ago there is so many minmill sellers around
[19:07:36] <Loetmichel> right
[19:07:37] <IchGuckLive> the market is filling up
[19:08:04] <IchGuckLive> plasma is the new goal to be filled
[19:08:15] <IchGuckLive> all this metall fences around
[19:08:39] <Loetmichel> but still the most sellers have weired wobbly constructs.
[19:09:00] <Loetmichel> nothing worth mentoining ;-)
[19:09:01] <IchGuckLive> chees mills are good for pcb
[19:09:16] <IchGuckLive> weigel does sell for 10k
[19:09:39] <Loetmichel> my intention was and is to build mills that are capable of light aluminium milling
[19:09:52] <Loetmichel> and have no measureable backlash
[19:10:41] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: i intend to build the wooden ones plug and play for a LinuxCNC-PC for less than 1kEur
[19:10:50] <IchGuckLive> thats the goeal everyone is looking fore
[19:11:09] <Loetmichel> for the 640 by 400mm mill
[19:11:26] <IchGuckLive> you can go al rack for this price
[19:12:05] <Loetmichel> ?
[19:12:25] <IchGuckLive> on cnc-discount rosa rail system its cheep also to go ballbearing
[19:12:28] <Loetmichel> did you mean "aluminium frame"?
[19:12:33] <IchGuckLive> yes
[19:12:47] <IchGuckLive> the 45x45 heavy
[19:12:54] <Loetmichel> aluminium frames are wobbly OR expensive
[19:13:25] <Loetmichel> ans i have never seen a extruded aluminium profile that wasnd like a banana
[19:13:32] <Loetmichel> *and
[19:13:50] <IchGuckLive> with bolds every 100mm its not
[19:14:06] <Loetmichel> ?
[19:14:24] <Loetmichel> the PROFILES are bent
[19:14:27] <Loetmichel> not the rails
[19:14:48] <Loetmichel> and if you mount the rails on the profiles the rails are also bent
[19:15:22] <IchGuckLive> ok did you see cnc-step reptor production
[19:15:56] <IchGuckLive> he is now on 30people manufacturing this tiny things
[19:16:17] <IchGuckLive> for that price they go as "Warme Weck"
[19:16:25] <Loetmichel> if i want to do a extremely STURDY mill, i will go for rectangular steel tube, welded to a fat frame, glown for some hrs in the oven (stress relieve), and then milled over to be precise
[19:17:05] <Loetmichel> welded to BE a fat frame
[19:17:26] <Loetmichel> cnc-step?
[19:17:42] <IchGuckLive> dot de
[19:17:46] <Loetmichel> the ones with the "multitool"?
[19:19:54] <Loetmichel> god in heavens, THAT company... i would NEVER buy from them, even if they HAD good products because of the attitude of their boss... to try to push the competition out of the market by filing complaints about missing "not aus" and stuff has rendered them "not buyable by me

[21:07:35] <Aero-Tec> getting limit error
[21:07:51] <Aero-Tec> I set the limit in the INI to 12 places
[21:08:08] <Aero-Tec> yet for some reason the z axis will not go
[21:08:27] <Aero-Tec> says move would be beyond the limits
[21:08:34] <andypugh> Aero-Tec: Did you home?
[21:08:46] <Aero-Tec> so is there a over ride limit?
[21:09:03] <Aero-Tec> I have ignore home set
[21:09:13] <Aero-Tec> no I did not home Z
[21:09:33] <andypugh> You still need to tell it where it is on the slide, even with no-force-homing
[21:09:56] <Aero-Tec> but I do have limit set at +/- 999999999999
[21:09:58] <andypugh> Press # and you will see where the machine thinks it is in machine cordinates.
[21:10:15] <Aero-Tec> ok
[21:13:27] <Aero-Tec> still complains
[21:13:31] <Aero-Tec> I did a home
[21:13:49] <Aero-Tec> the z was at 4800 and change
[21:14:46] <Aero-Tec> is there some other place other then INI to set axis limit?
[21:15:32] <andypugh> No, only the INI
[21:15:52] <andypugh> This is fun: Google as it would have been in punchcard days. http://www.masswerk.at/google60/
[21:17:29] <gene77> I guess the only way I'll get the spindle speed right is put a scale operation between limit2.0.output and pid.0.commnd.
[21:17:41] <gene77> Is this normal?
[21:18:24] <andypugh> No, and it makes no sense. Any scaling ought to be on the feedback side.
[21:18:39] <Aero-Tec> Z is axis 2 right?
[21:18:47] <andypugh> Aero-Tec: Yes
[21:19:59] <Aero-Tec> so why does it not accept my limits in the INI?
[21:20:26] <Aero-Tec> just changed it to angular, see if that helps
[21:23:23] <gene77> Ok Andy, encoder.x4 is off, mode is 0, position scale is then the number of slots=39, and its a bunch closer
[21:24:17] <Aero-Tec> well that does not work
[21:25:15] <Aero-Tec> even homing Z makes it complain about axis 2 being out of over limit
[21:25:52] <Aero-Tec> I could have been done my run by now if I just let it stop at moves end
[21:26:01] <Aero-Tec> looks like I will have to do that now
[21:26:11] <Aero-Tec> lost time and no real gain
[21:26:21] <Aero-Tec> found out some limits of EMC
[21:26:32] <Aero-Tec> BTW am I doing anything wrong?
[21:27:16] <Aero-Tec> why will Z not take the limits of the INI?
[21:27:56] <Aero-Tec> there must be some internal limit for Z, or I am messing up some how
[21:28:30] <Aero-Tec> any gurus out there that can help?
[21:29:40] <gene77> we need a real time halscope, this 30+ seconds for an update is killing my back
[21:30:44] <Tom_itx> Aero-Tec, what's MIN_LIMIT and MAX_LIMIT set for on that axis?
[21:31:06] <Aero-Tec> 999999999999
[21:31:12] <Aero-Tec> -999999999999
[21:32:20] <Tom_itx> try a smaller value?
[21:33:11] <Aero-Tec> I just checked and made sure the min was the - one and the max was the + one
[21:33:15] <Aero-Tec> can do
[21:33:19] <Aero-Tec> how small?
[21:33:28] <Tom_itx> 6 digit maybe
[21:33:40] <Aero-Tec> 12 worked for B axis
[21:34:14] <Aero-Tec> actually the B was tons higher
[21:34:17] <Aero-Tec> 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999.0
[21:34:30] <Aero-Tec> did not count how many that was
[21:35:04] <Aero-Tec> with 6 digits I run out of room
[21:35:37] <Aero-Tec> when doing the same run over and over it adds up
[21:35:52] <Aero-Tec> but for the fun of it will try
[21:37:06] <Aero-Tec> lol
[21:37:09] <Aero-Tec> oops
[21:37:17] <Aero-Tec> looks like that are both -
[21:37:42] <Aero-Tec> funny how one can over look a little- sign
[21:41:24] <Aero-Tec> ok
[21:41:28] <Aero-Tec> it worked
[21:41:34] <Aero-Tec> nice and smooth
[21:41:45] <Aero-Tec> whole thing in one shot
[21:42:28] <Aero-Tec> thing is wrap rotary did not work
[21:42:50] <Aero-Tec> and it is set at angular so wrap axis should be working
[21:43:37] <Aero-Tec> using G64 and G94
[21:43:46] <Aero-Tec> so units per min
[21:44:10] <Aero-Tec> did not need to do G93
[21:46:18] <Aero-Tec> any idea why wrapped rotary did not work?
[21:46:54] <gene77> Andy: What is a typical pwmgen.scale?
[21:58:29] <gene77> Andy, there is not a balance point between pwmgen,scale and pid.FF0, its a never ending fight

[22:29:45] <gene77> Now I think I have a usable range from 1 rps to 10 rps setup and am looking at pid.out to see if its suitable for use as a fuse trip, but to get that scaled to on screen in the halscope, the range has to be set to about 100v/div!
[22:31:35] <gene77> And, it doesn't seem to be affected by spindle load. Odd. The error is, but thats got way too many startt-stop jumps to be really usefull.
[22:34:04] <gene77> I've copied off everything into the hal file, and will restart it using motion-speed-rps as those steps are much smaller when using the axis buttons for speed control, brb

[22:46:16] <MercuryRising> i have linux cnc running (installed, not livecd) on my computer, everything works except for pncconf. when i try to run it, it complains about a line in expatbuilder, "ExpatError: not well-formed (invalid token)". I tried to find the line in the git source, but I don't know how to look at previous versions (as the line numbers are all different now). Supposedly, this error comes from "Double dashes are not valid within comme
[22:46:18] <MercuryRising> nts (other than when ending them)" (via stack overflow). Any tips?
[22:47:01] <JT-Shop> what version are you running?
[22:53:15] <andypugh> gene77: pid.out is the output to the PWM, and that will be proprtional to velocity, pretty much.
[22:53:29] <andypugh> Looking at pid.0.error ought to work better.
[23:00:41] <MercuryRising> the latest one, i got it a couple weeks ago (linuxcnc - 2.5 and ubuntu 10.04 i believe)
[23:05:22] <gene77> Looks like, but I just found a huge discrepancy between motio-speed-out and motion-speedout-rps
[23:05:23] <JT-Shop> but you did not use the liveCD to install?
[23:05:42] <MercuryRising> i used the live cd to install
[23:05:48] <MercuryRising> but it's running from my hdd
[23:05:53] <gene77> what was an s10 command to get 600 rpms, is now an s2550!

[23:19:25] <andypugh> Dodgy banner ads have no trouble at all in offering me unconvincing examples od "Basildon Milfs" so why do Youtube struggle?

[23:20:01] <MercuryRising> they probably want to be extra sure they aren't letting any germans see it
[23:20:32] <JT-Shop> MercuryRising: no, but that does indicate you have the realtime kernal
[23:20:46] <JT-Shop> can you check the md5sum of the iso?

[23:22:42] <JT-Shop> that the chap that stole your video?
[23:22:51] <andypugh> That's right
[23:24:29] <JT-Shop> anyone know of a profiling insert that would cut a ball type shape with one tool?
[23:25:38] <gene77> And your right, pid.output seems to have no relation to spindle load. I would think it would rise markedly when the spindle is loaded.
[23:26:20] <gene77> So, if I'm to use the pid.error, I'll need a time delay to absorb the on ramps
[23:26:33] <andypugh> gene77: There may be an internal speed controller in the spindle drive.
[23:26:38] <rob_h> JT-Shop, depends how big ball is, but a vbmt tip might get u close, the large V type shape tip
[23:27:12] <andypugh> gene: Mask it with a oneshot triggered from a rising edge of spindle.is-on
[23:27:44] <andypugh> JT-Shop: Internal or external?

[23:30:39] <JT-Shop> right size almost
[23:30:56] <gene77> so they are essentialy turned off. IGain seems to just put wrinkles in the speed for a second or so after the ramp up.
[23:32:55] <andypugh> You might need to set the FF0 at a level where I is always pulling in the correct direction.
[23:33:22] <andypugh> I is a bit funny, really.
[23:33:33] <gene77> I'm relatively happy with it I think, as 1 to 10 rps covers 99% of what I'd do on this toy anyway. Now to hook up a limit2 between error and comp in2 & set it for about 2x the response time that the first limit2 imposes on the speed of the ramp.
