[00:06:28] <PetefromTn> Some new pics of the water trough testing. They're all finished and I propped them up on sawhorses and filled them up as much as the tie tube would allow with water and so far no leaks at all... FINALLY.
[00:06:48] <PetefromTn> Here is my photobucket with some new pics...http://s150.photobucket.com/user/matospeter/library/Cincinatti%20Arrow%20500%20Retrofit?sort=3&page=1

[00:19:23] <PetefromTn> This is Epoxy industrial paint over an Epoxy resin so it SHOULD be about as durable a paint as you will find anywhere. Cleaning out these troughs for chips does not involve the troughs actually the machine uses perforated chip trays in the enclosure that sit above these troughs and catch all the swarf. When you clean out the machine you wash down the inside and then let it dry a bit and then the chip trays slide out each
[00:19:23] <PetefromTn> side of the machine allowing you to clean up with a shovel or something. The coolant troughs should never really see chips unless you are negligent with your cleaning regimen like the PO and let the enclosure fill up so much that when you pull the trays out it dumps around the sides like pouring mud from a bucket...

[00:46:56] <ssi> hi folks
[00:49:09] <PetefromTn> hey ssi...
[00:49:52] steves_logging is now known as steve_stallings
[00:50:01] <ssi> what's happening
[00:51:06] <steve_stallings> hi ssi, I've been watching the Beaglebone saga and I am curious, any chance you plan to go to Wichita for the LinuxCNC fest?
[00:51:35] <ssi> honestly I didn't know anything about it
[00:51:40] <ssi> I just saw a couple vague messages related
[00:51:41] <ssi> when is it?
[00:52:15] <steve_stallings> the week of 17 June
[00:52:17] <Tom_itx> 17th iirc
[00:52:33] <ssi> could be fun
[00:52:37] <ssi> lemme look at the distance real quick
[00:52:45] <steve_stallings> I thought Michael said he was coming over for it. Lots of other software contributors have indicated plans to attend.
[00:53:04] <Tom_itx> sounds like a big turnout
[00:53:10] <Tom_itx> http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.emc.user/42692/focus=42699
[00:53:14] <Tom_itx> that was posted here about it
[00:53:21] <ssi> 688nm
[00:53:30] <steve_stallings> Me... I'm a hardware guy but I am hooked on the interaction that happens at these fests.
[00:53:43] <Tom_itx> would be my first if i make it
[00:54:00] <ssi> oh wow it's a week
[00:54:14] <ssi> who all is actually from wichita, butw?
[00:54:19] <Tom_itx> i live here
[00:54:21] <ssi> s/butw/btw/
[00:54:24] <ssi> Tom_itx: ok cool
[00:54:31] <ssi> are there still surplus aviation tool stores?
[00:54:32] <steve_stallings> Some folks plan to show up later in the week so they can be there Thurs, Friday, and Saturday.
[00:54:38] <Tom_itx> a few
[00:54:42] <Tom_itx> nothing like there used to be
[00:54:56] <ssi> I need to restock up on QC drill bits
[00:55:01] <Tom_itx> boeing surplus closed here
[00:55:04] <ssi> boooo
[00:55:17] <ssi> well maybe I'll plan on flying out
[00:55:17] <Tom_itx> there's a surplus guy just up the street from the shop though
[00:55:18] <steve_stallings> The fest is held at a major plant owned by Stuart Stephenson and he lets us roam about and drool over the machines. Sometimes even help retrofit one.
[00:55:23] <ssi> seven hours in the cherokee
[00:55:24] <andypugh> I'll be there.
[00:55:35] <Tom_itx> i'm gonna try to show up on friday
[00:55:48] <Tom_itx> and then there's the yard store
[00:55:54] <Tom_itx> surplus metals etc
[00:55:58] <ssi> I've bought stuff from the yard online before
[00:56:06] <andypugh> (12 hours in airports and planes, 7 hours in the car sounds better)
[00:56:13] <Tom_itx> they used to have alot more stuff
[00:56:17] <ssi> andypugh: 7 hours in a light plane
[00:56:31] <ssi> in my slow ass one anyway
[00:56:38] <Tom_itx> andypugh, found a place to stay yet?
[00:56:39] <L84Supper> 12 hour drive for me
[00:56:42] <ssi> it'll be 4 hours in the RV if I can ever get it finished
[00:57:09] <andypugh> I was going to book the place that cradek(?) suggested.
[00:57:17] <Tom_itx> dunno what he suggested
[00:57:28] <Tom_itx> there's several decent places nearby though
[00:57:52] <steve_stallings> Three of us from the Wash DC area plan to carpool so we can bring "stuff". Nice 20 hour drive, 24 if you count food, fuel, and bladder stops.
[00:57:56] <L84Supper> where is it actually going to be held?
[00:58:07] <Tom_itx> at stuart's place
[00:58:30] <L84Supper> how much room does he have?
[00:58:43] <ssi> yea I'll definitely plan on coming
[00:58:44] <Tom_itx> it's a big shop
[00:58:46] <Tom_itx> MPM is 2100 S West St Wichita Kansas and SFI is 1517 N Santa Fe Wichita
[00:58:49] <ssi> I dunno about a week, but maybe friday morning to sunday afternoon
[00:58:59] <Tom_itx> the West st location is about 2 mi or so from me
[00:59:00] <steve_stallings> About 50,000 square feet under roof would be my guess.
[00:59:02] <ssi> I wonder if I'll need to rent a car
[00:59:44] <ssi> too bad I can't bring the HNC out and get someone to fix the plumbing ;)
[00:59:56] <Tom_itx> heh
[01:00:09] <Tom_itx> steve_stallings, sounds about right
[01:00:15] -!- hdokes [hdokes!~hdokes@173-165-40-177-Illinois.hfc.comcastbusiness.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[01:00:39] <Tom_itx> i've been by there lots of times just never been inside
[01:00:40] <steve_stallings> Well, first time there Chris Radek came in his bus converted to an RV (land yacth).
[01:01:13] <Tom_itx> the airport isn't far away either
[01:01:18] <Tom_itx> or lodging
[01:01:37] <L84Supper> where to stay nearby <10 mi ?
[01:01:42] <Tom_itx> for sure
[01:01:47] <andypugh> https://plus.google.com/117447859456074293037/about?gl=uk&hl=en
[01:01:48] <Tom_itx> probably <5
[01:02:12] <steve_stallings> If there was some consensus on where to stay, going carless might be possible. Our gang is cheap so we will be staying in weekly rate old place of some sort.
[01:02:33] <Tom_itx> there's one of those near a walmart just off the highway
[01:02:41] <Tom_itx> between the airport and the shop
[01:02:56] <Tom_itx> andypugh, that's a nice one too
[01:03:13] <andypugh> Yeah. Chris said it was his recommendation
[01:03:38] <Tom_itx> i'm trying to orient that in my head to a couple others
[01:03:46] <steve_stallings> I don't remember the name, but last time Matt and I stayed in a place across town. Cheap, WiFi worked. Old fashion greasy diner across the parking lot. Loved it!
[01:04:38] <andypugh> Candlewood is 3m from MPM.
[01:05:02] <Tom_itx> andypugh, if you see 'town west' there is one even closer to MPM near 'WEST' st
[01:05:09] <Tom_itx> right off the highway 54
[01:05:15] <Tom_itx> Hampton iirc
[01:05:37] <andypugh> Looking at Streetview, it is terribly flat, isnt it?
[01:05:38] <Tom_itx> the hampton is a bit nicer but probably similar priced
[01:05:47] <Tom_itx> as a pancake
[01:06:01] <Tom_itx> welcome to tornado alley
[01:06:44] <L84Supper> I can fly round trip for only $260
[01:07:56] <L84Supper> gas will cost me >$400
[01:08:56] <Tom_itx> the motel 8 and scottsman inn are right by the wallmart (sleazo motels)
[01:09:18] <Tom_itx> reagency, holiday inn express are all nearby there
[01:09:26] <Tom_itx> the holiday inn express is brand new
[01:09:33] <L84Supper> how about an air mattress and pup tent in the back of the shop? :)
[01:09:33] <andypugh> Yeah, if I am paying as much as I am for the trip, Sleazo is out.
[01:10:08] <Tom_itx> i'd take cradek's suggestion or the Hampton or Holiday inn express
[01:10:14] <Tom_itx> the latter 2 are a bit nicer
[01:10:24] <Tom_itx> all near the airport
[01:10:37] <Tom_itx> the Airport Hilton is right at the airport parking lot
[01:10:39] <L84Supper> andypugh: do you stop through Chicago or Dallas from Heathrow?
[01:11:05] <Tom_itx> my personal choice would be the Hampton or Holiday inn express

[01:13:28] <Tom_L> there's also quite a bit of construction near the airport so you may need to take a shuttle to parking
[01:13:33] <ssi> I might ought to consider commercial
[01:13:41] <Tom_L> they just broke ground on a new parking garage there
[01:13:42] <ssi> 7hrs round trip at $60/hr
[01:13:51] <ssi> er
[01:13:53] <ssi> 7 hours each way
[01:13:56] <ssi> shit thats $1k
[01:14:07] <ssi> yea commercial might be saner :(
[01:15:57] <L84Supper> Wichita always reminds me of Planes. Trains and Automobiles
[01:17:34] <Tom_L> andypugh, i'm pretty sure this is the one right off West st: http://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/kansas/hampton-inn-wichita-west-airport-area-ICTKSHX/index.html
[01:18:25] <andypugh> Thanks, I suppose I ought to make a decision soon :-)
[01:18:36] <ssi> $258
[01:18:37] <Tom_itx> i'm locating the holiday inn as well

[01:19:41] <Tom_L> dugan Rd is almost right at the airport off the highway
[01:19:58] <Tom_L> those are all within i'd say 5mi of the shop
[01:20:55] <L84Supper> http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g39143-Wichita_Kansas-Hotels.html
[01:21:12] <ssi> I wonder what first class on an expressjet is like
[01:21:16] <ssi> heh
[01:21:51] <Tom_L> L84Supper some of those are closer to downtown
[01:22:07] <Tom_L> the shop is closer to the west side of town as is the airport
[01:22:22] <Tom_L> their other shop is north of midtown a bit
[01:22:55] <Jymmm> cnc fest already?
[01:23:53] <Tom_L> the Ambassador and Drury Plaza are both downtown
[01:24:01] <Tom_L> old renovated to new
[01:24:13] <Tom_L> drury is right on the river
[01:24:26] <Tom_L> as is the hotel at waterwalk
[01:25:52] <Tom_L> if you have quality questions i may be able to answer for a specific pick

[01:26:56] <ssi> the biggest pain in the ass about this beagle gpio thing is gonna be mapping all the pins to their control registers
[01:27:12] <ssi> and figuring out a way to user-specify which pins to attach to and in what direction and what pullups
[01:28:01] <Tom_L> decent dining is nearby the west locations as well
[01:28:19] <Tom_L> mcdonalds clear up to steak n lobster etc

[01:31:48] <ssi> I started fixing my plasma table
[01:31:52] <ssi> I started by redoing all my air lines
[01:31:52] <Gamma-x> nice!
[01:32:02] <L84Supper> Tom_itx: how far is downtown from the two shops?
[01:32:08] <Tom_L> not far
[01:32:09] <ssi> half my shop was done with iron pipe, and it was rotting from the inside and blowing rust dust through all my machines
[01:32:13] <Gamma-x> L84Supper, where u goin?
[01:32:13] <Tom_L> both in different directions
[01:32:13] <ssi> which is part of why my HNC is sick
[01:32:37] <Tom_L> L84Supper, i'd guestimate maybe 5-10 mi from downtown for each
[01:33:08] <Gamma-x> ssi, so fix it :)
[01:33:24] <Tom_L> one takes the major highway north to 13th st exit and the other takes the major highway west to West st then south
[01:33:48] <L84Supper> Tom_itx: do you have actual traffic there? 5-10 miles is 10-20 minutes by cars or?
[01:34:00] <Tom_L> not like california
[01:34:03] <Gamma-x> where r yu guys reffering too?
[01:34:06] <Tom_L> rush hour is bearable
[01:34:15] <Tom_L> still less than 20 min
[01:34:41] <Tom_L> L84Supper where are you?
[01:34:48] <L84Supper> Gamma-x: the meetup in Wichita
[01:35:11] <Gamma-x> when is it?
[01:35:14] <L84Supper> Tom_itx: probably Chicago in mid June
[01:35:18] <ssi> Gamma-x: one thing at a time :)
[01:35:28] <Tom_L> the nice thing is both shops are near the highways or within 3 mi of them
[01:35:36] <Gamma-x> wichita ks?
[01:35:38] <Tom_L> yes
[01:35:45] <Gamma-x> im fairly close to that
[01:36:05] <Gamma-x> bout a 6 hr drive from me
[01:36:06] <Tom_L> the meetings i presume will be at the West location
[01:36:29] <Tom_L> in stuart's email he indicated the north shop is a fab shop
[01:37:37] <L84Supper> what do you call this meetin?
[01:37:38] <Tom_L> if you want the old town experience stay at the hotel at oldtown
[01:37:46] <L84Supper> cnc fest?
[01:37:50] <Tom_L> i think so
[01:39:23] <Tom_L> i think andy will get lost here because all our streets are straight
[01:39:40] <Tom_L> for the most part

[02:29:31] <PetefromTn> well right now both trays were set on top of sawhorses for several hours filled with about two inches of water and no leaks whatsoever. I had to repaint the bottoms of the troughs today underneath because the welding burned the paint off the bottom and I had ground down the areas and removed the paint so now it is all painted everywhere and it is dry. Now I just need to go out there and install them and hookup the huge
[02:29:31] <PetefromTn> connecting tube and fill up the system...
[02:30:01] <Connor> Cool.
[02:30:06] <PetefromTn> yup

[02:32:15] <ssi> I'm in the same boat
[02:32:25] <ssi> I spent like six hours today ripping down iron pipe and putting up PVC
[02:32:32] <ssi> and then I rewired the motor connections on the plasma table
[02:35:11] <PetefromTn> did you put PVC on your air lines?
[02:36:27] <ssi> yea half my house was plumbed in iron pipe for air
[02:36:33] <ssi> and it was rotting and shitting into my machines
[02:36:40] <ssi> the other half was done in pvc, later
[02:36:46] <ssi> I replaced all the iron today with pvc
[02:41:36] <PetefromTn> just be careful PVC air lines can kinda explode dangerously if impacted when under pressure. Kinda like a florescent tube bulb.
[02:41:43] <ssi> neat
[02:42:31] -!- ds3 has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[02:42:52] <PetefromTn> I need to run a line for my VMC halfway around the shop to my vertical compressor and I am going to just use some soft tubing like air hose I bought that is too rigid for shop use.
[02:43:18] <PetefromTn> I need to move the compressor closer tho because it is not long enough

[03:35:49] <ssi> god I hate not having network on the linuxcnc box
[03:41:28] <ssi> anyone familiar with running a G540 on a 5i25?
[03:41:40] <Jymmm> cat5 cables are cheap
[03:42:00] <ssi> yeah they are
[03:42:06] <ssi> networking that works on that computer however...
[03:43:05] <Jymmm> why's that?
[03:43:10] <ssi> dunno
[03:43:26] <ssi> it just sits there and prints "link up... link down... link up... link down..." in dmesg
[03:43:41] <Jymmm> wired or wireless?
[03:43:44] <ssi> wire
[03:43:44] <ssi> d
[03:43:54] <Jymmm> did you try a different nic?
[03:44:06] <ssi> no... the pci slot is in use by the mesa card
[03:44:13] <ssi> plus I'm not sure I have a nic lying around
[03:45:12] <Jymmm> try manually seting an IP on it
[03:45:37] <ssi> I have
[03:45:47] <ssi> plus it's a link layer problem
[03:46:25] <Jymmm> boot a livecd (knoppix) and see if you have the same isue
[03:46:48] <Jymmm> if you di, then you know it's a hw thing.
[03:46:51] <Jymmm> do
[03:46:57] -!- Valen has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[03:47:17] <ssi> I'm not trying to fix networking right now, I'm trying to fix plasma table :P
[03:47:26] <Jymmm> knoppix is one of the better ones for detecting hardware

[03:47:46] <Jymmm> Yeah, but your COMPLAING about the network NOW =)
[03:48:17] <ssi> only because in order to google for info on setting up the mesa gear, I have to wade through the lake in my basement and up the stairs
[03:48:43] <Jymmm> Then network sounds like it might be a priority =)
[03:48:56] <ssi> it would be if I thought it was feasible to fix it
[03:48:57] <Jymmm> and you can get updates
[03:49:04] <Jymmm> ah
[03:49:16] <ssi> but that's going to require me dragging the machine upstairs and burning a cd and fiddle fucking around just to find out if it's even possible to fix
[03:49:35] <ssi> it'd be faster and easier to get tigerdirect to send me another offlease dell 755 on monday
[03:50:37] <jdh> how are they for latency for SW stepping?
[03:51:00] <ssi> pretty good
[03:51:04] <ssi> 17us or so
[03:51:39] <ssi> ugh ok I guess I'm dragging that stupid machine back upstairs anyway
[03:52:52] <jdh> wonder how much of the price is the windows license
[03:54:21] <ssi> good question
[03:54:25] <ssi> I only paid $199 for the last one
[03:54:35] <jdh> I see them for $159
[03:54:44] <jdh> http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4959793&CatId=2628
[03:54:58] <ssi> yea
[03:55:02] <ssi> I paid a little more for a full tower
[03:55:10] <ssi> cause I didn't want to run into problems with full height PCI cards
[03:55:15] <ssi> but with 5i25 low profile isn't a problem
[03:55:17] <jdh> my last work computer was a 755. It sucked
[03:55:36] <ssi> haha
[03:55:37] <jdh> (32bit win, 2gb) painful with anything loaded
[03:55:40] <ssi> it's fine for lcnc
[03:55:42] <jdh> yeah
[03:56:06] <jdh> not for visual studio
[03:56:28] <ssi> no i imagine not :)
[03:57:00] <jdh> my new one is no better. Lot more cpu, but corp IT only loads 32bit windows so it will only do 3.2gb ram
[03:57:20] <Tom_itx> anyone ever use the 'LUT5' halui function?
[03:57:33] <Tom_itx> or have an example
[04:02:49] <jdh> never heard of it. Looks cool, in a somewhat painful way.
[04:03:03] <jdh> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Lut5
[04:03:31] <Tom_itx> thought it might be easier than trying to define what i want my spindle button to do with and and or gates
[04:04:12] <jdh> looks like it woudl be useful for that. Not sure about easier.
[04:04:22] <Tom_itx> that or logic.9
[04:04:40] <cradek> there are examples in the manpage
[04:04:41] <Gamma-x> is there a guide to tuning steppers?
[04:04:45] <Tom_itx> manual mode is no big deal
[04:05:10] <jdh> Gamma-x: use the times in the drive manual?
[04:05:14] <Tom_itx> in auto mode there are only certain cases the spindle should be allowed to stop or restart and resume
[04:05:35] <Gamma-x> jdh drive manual? lol
[04:07:22] <ssi> I hate dicking with computers so much
[04:07:28] <jdh> me too
[04:07:51] <jdh> if someone would pay me as much to do something else, I'd consider it.
[04:08:03] <ssi> well I mean physically
[04:08:23] <jdh> gamma: what drives?
[04:08:26] <ssi> when I was 20 and broke, I loved nothing more than piecing together garbage computers from whatever scrap I could get my hands on
[04:08:39] <ssi> nowadays I don't have quite the tolerance for it
[04:08:56] <jdh> when I was 20, there weren't many scrap computers
[04:10:30] <ssi> well then deuce coupes or whatever was the thing that broke kids obsessed over in your day ;)
[04:10:54] <jdh> beer and weed?
[04:11:03] <ssi> yea I guess those are timeless
[04:11:06] <ssi> although they never were my thing
[04:12:24] <ssi> oh computer, how you mock me
[04:12:33] <ssi> I have a solid link light on the nic now
[04:12:36] <ssi> but no eth0 device
[04:12:51] <Gamma-x> what step/rev is most common?
[04:12:58] <jdh> 200
[04:13:04] <jdh> but that is motor dependent, not drive.
[04:13:14] <Gamma-x> myne doesnt have an option for that lol the drive *
[04:14:02] <Gamma-x> i have a 1.8 degree motor so it is 200 but the microstep setting (lowest) is 2.
[04:15:29] <jdh> are you using stepconf?
[04:16:55] <Gamma-x> yup
[04:17:08] <jdh> then just fill in the blanks
[04:17:37] <Gamma-x> well when it gets too velocity and acceleration.... im kinda stumped...
[04:18:08] <jdh> use the test panel
[04:18:53] <Gamma-x> sometimes there are intermittent problems....
[04:19:24] <Gamma-x> one setting may be great once and then when running it in a program the setting seems tio make the stepper jitter and not move.
[04:20:02] <ssi> then it's too much accel
[04:20:19] <ssi> it takes torque to accelerate a mass at a given rate
[04:20:27] <ssi> if you ask for too much torque, a stepper will stall
[04:20:34] <jdh> you need to use the test panel across the full travel also.
[04:21:32] <ssi> so do I want to spend $300 to cram in a tiny seat in a CRJ to wichita
[04:21:37] <ssi> or $1100 to fly my self
[04:21:59] <Gamma-x> ssi where u live?
[04:22:05] <ssi> atlanta
[04:22:14] <jdh> Take the $1100, go someplace good instead.
[04:22:17] <Gamma-x> thATS a 26 hr drive
[04:22:23] <ssi> 26 hr?
[04:22:29] <ssi> from colorado you mean?
[04:22:32] <ssi> or to wichita from atlanta
[04:22:41] <Gamma-x> wichita to atlanta
[04:22:45] <ssi> no way
[04:22:59] <ssi> gmaps says 14hr
[04:23:20] <ssi> which sounds exactly right, because it's 688nm, which'd be about 7hr in the cherokee, which is always about twice as fast as driving
[04:23:57] <Gamma-x> wow my bad
[04:24:04] <Gamma-x> but ull do stops for gas
[04:24:05] <Gamma-x> food
[04:24:08] <Gamma-x> cops
[04:24:12] <ssi> not in the air I won't
[04:24:15] <ssi> I'll stop once for fuel
[04:24:23] <Gamma-x> how much in fuel is it?
[04:24:28] <Gamma-x> what kinda car?
[04:24:29] <ssi> $1100 round trip
[04:25:00] <ssi> https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/47_508587380362_1197_n.jpg
[04:25:02] <ssi> that kind of car :P
[04:25:06] <Gamma-x> jdh, when I had my velocity it was set at 2.5 and the motors would jitter...
[04:25:36] <Gamma-x> ohhhhh i forgot u have a plane lol
[04:25:57] <Gamma-x> come pick me up
[04:25:59] <ssi> if I could convince my friend Jay to go with me, we could take his jetta diesel
[04:26:05] <ssi> it can get to wichita from here in one tank
[04:26:14] <Gamma-x> id drive if i were u
[04:26:19] <Gamma-x> im a cheapo though
[04:26:24] <ssi> that's a long long long drive
[04:26:28] <Gamma-x> although if u can afford a plane... id fly it
[04:26:36] <ssi> be cheaper to fly commercially than drive for me
[04:26:47] <Gamma-x> when is everyone meeting up?
[04:27:58] <ssi> week of 6/17
[04:28:48] <Gamma-x> whos place?
[04:29:10] <ssi> couple different folks I think
[04:32:31] <ssi> oh so this is cute
[04:32:39] <ssi> when I install the 5i25 in the box, the network device goes away
[04:38:51] <ssi> did I mention I *hate* dicking with computers?: (
[04:41:58] <Gamma-x> ssi, you know linux good?
[04:42:17] <ssi> sure
[04:42:37] <Gamma-x> does it still show up with lspci?
[04:43:03] <ssi> the net device?
[04:43:06] <ssi> not sure it ever did
[04:43:07] <ssi> hang on
[04:43:10] <Gamma-x> ok
[04:43:34] <ssi> hm yea it shows up now, with the mesa card out
[04:43:57] <Gamma-x> type in ifconfig and see if it shows the mac addrfess of it
[04:44:01] <Gamma-x> for eth0
[04:44:04] <ssi> it's connected now
[04:44:07] <ssi> I have the mesa card out
[04:44:13] <Gamma-x> ok now put the card in.
[04:44:18] <ssi> can't right this second
[04:44:26] <Gamma-x> ok
[04:44:28] <ssi> upgrading packages
[04:44:32] <Gamma-x> ok
[04:44:47] <ssi> I'm not sure the mesa card worked when it was in either
[04:44:53] <ssi> I got an LED flash at power up, but no LEDs after that
[04:44:59] <ssi> I'm not sure what the normal LED status should be
[04:45:04] <ssi> but this machine is screwy
[04:45:14] <ssi> I may go to microcenter tomorrow and see if they have any of the dell 755s in stock
[04:45:19] <ssi> they list them on their site
[04:45:20] <Gamma-x> ill take it off your hands :)
[04:45:25] <ssi> http://microcenter.com/product/411678/Optiplex_755_Desktop_Computer_Refurbished
[04:45:30] <ssi> come get it
[04:45:31] <ssi> it's a pile of shit
[04:45:46] <Gamma-x> iyou dont like?
[04:45:55] <Gamma-x> ill pay for shipping!
[04:46:08] <ssi> heh if I get another machine to replace it, I'd ship this one to you
[04:46:09] <ssi> it's terrible
[04:46:19] <Gamma-x> i meant the mesa
[04:46:25] <ssi> oh, no you can't have that
[04:46:32] <ssi> I love mesa more than I love my children
[04:46:34] <Gamma-x> lol but ill take a spare computer.
[04:48:57] <Gamma-x> what other brand motion control cards work with linuxcnc? maby i can find a cheapo on ebay
[04:50:07] <ssi> heh I'm not even going to attempt to answer t hat
[04:52:10] <Gamma-x> im broke... I need to make some parts asap!
[04:52:45] <ssi> to answer your question, with the mesa card in the machine, the nic does not show up in lspci
[04:53:04] <Gamma-x> must be some kinda of irq conflict..
[04:53:18] <ssi> those still exist? :P
[04:53:58] <Gamma-x> try lsdev
[04:54:05] <Gamma-x> see if there both in there?
[04:54:15] <ssi> heh I have to reboot and pull the card to install lsdev
[04:54:58] <ssi> the mesa card is showing up
[04:54:59] <ssi> shows up as:
[04:55:05] <ssi> DPIO module: Device 2718:5125
[04:55:09] <ssi> and just confirmed in manual:
[04:55:18] <ssi> VENDOR ID
[04:55:18] <ssi> DEVICE ID
[04:55:18] <ssi> SUBSYSTEM VENDOR ID
[04:55:18] <ssi> SUBSYSTEM DEVICE ID
[04:55:18] <ssi> 0X2718 0x5125 0x2718 0x5125
[04:55:41] <Gamma-x> but no nic underlsdev?
[04:55:49] <ssi> I told you, I have to install it
[04:55:53] <ssi> and I need network to do that
[04:56:09] <Gamma-x> u need to install lsdev?!
[04:56:19] <ssi> yes
[04:56:42] <Gamma-x> it should be built into linuxcnc
[04:56:48] <ssi> doesn't seem to be
[04:58:52] <Gamma-x> do you have a wireless nic such as a usb one?
[04:59:24] <ssi> not one that works in linux
[04:59:49] <Gamma-x> I always keep an alfa close at hand. have about 3 of them
[05:00:03] <Gamma-x> ssi your lathe working?
[05:00:07] <ssi> NO
[05:00:21] <Gamma-x> so serious
[05:00:21] <ssi> notihng I own works :(
[05:00:37] <Gamma-x> I wish I could come out to you and help get the lathe up and running
[05:01:19] <ssi> ok according to lsdev, eth0 is irq 27
[05:01:26] <ssi> lemme slam the mesa back in and reboot :P
[05:03:31] <ssi> mesa doesn't have anything that shows up in lsdev
[05:03:55] <GammaX> ssi are you hot swapping your pci things?!
[05:04:04] <ssi> hell no
[05:04:19] <GammaX> hahah the way you worded that I was like uhhhh theres your problem! haha
[05:04:40] <GammaX> ok so now you have both cards showing up in the system?
[05:04:43] <ssi> no
[05:04:47] <ssi> only one will ever show up
[05:05:03] <GammaX> how did your mesa card show up in your system?
[05:05:14] <ssi> DPIO module: Device 2718:5125
[05:05:29] <ssi> 0a:09.0 DPIO module: Device 2718:5125
[05:06:04] <GammaX> is that showing up now?
[05:06:07] <ssi> yep
[05:06:19] <GammaX> does lsdev still show your eth0 irq?
[05:06:21] <ssi> nope
[05:06:37] <ssi> ok did lspci -t, the mesa is hanging off the 82801 pci bridge
[05:06:43] <ssi> lemme reboot again and see where the tg3 lives
[05:07:39] <GammaX> ok
[05:07:52] <GammaX> sorry for your situation. im trying to help as much as I can
[05:08:05] <GammaX> might be worth checking in your bios...
[05:08:26] <ssi> already did
[05:08:34] <ssi> there's nothing remarkably configurable about the nic
[05:08:38] <ssi> I can disable it
[05:09:02] <GammaX> well configurable about the pci slots and irq's
[05:09:10] <ssi> nothing
[05:09:11] <ssi> heh
[05:09:15] <ssi> there's only one pci slot
[05:09:16] <GammaX> lol
[05:09:20] <ssi> also the nic is pcie
[05:09:24] <GammaX> oh
[05:09:27] <ssi> it's hanging off a different port of the pci bridge
[05:09:31] <ssi> it's pcie but built in
[05:09:34] <ssi> electrically pcie :)
[05:09:46] <GammaX> im a lil confused... lol
[05:09:52] <ssi> how can I clarify
[05:10:31] <ssi> this little stupid piece of shit computer has a PCI/PCIE riser in it
[05:10:36] <ssi> it has one PCI slot and one PCIEx1 slot
[05:10:44] <GammaX> lol
[05:10:44] <GammaX> ok
[05:10:47] <ssi> the pci bridge has three ports
[05:10:54] <ssi> 00:1c.0 pcie port 1
[05:11:03] <ssi> 00:1c.4 pcie port 5
[05:11:11] <ssi> 00:1e.0 pci port
[05:11:25] <ssi> the nic is a BCM5787 pcie gigabit nic
[05:11:29] <ssi> tigon3 driver
[05:11:45] <ssi> it's attached to 1c.4, the pcie port 5
[05:11:53] <ssi> when I put the mesa card in, it shows up as attached to 1e.0
[05:11:57] <ssi> but the nic goes away
[05:13:05] <GammaX> ah
[05:13:09] -!- gabewillen has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
[05:15:29] <ssi> yea I have no damn idea
[05:15:31] <ssi> this computer is a pile
[05:17:52] <GammaX> im questioning the fellows
[05:22:05] <ssi> I can't get the mesa driver to load either
[05:22:22] <GammaX> look at dmesg
[05:22:32] <GammaX> see if anything is popping up
[05:22:48] <ssi> unfortunately the hm2 drivers don't have useful error messages
[05:22:52] <ssi> it returns -1 on all failures
[05:22:59] <ssi> so all you end up getting is "unknown symbol in module"
[05:23:26] <GammaX> ssi that coming from dmesg?
[05:23:31] <ssi> ya
[05:23:42] <GammaX> jeaser
[05:24:40] <ssi> I'm really not having a productive evening :/
[05:25:02] <GammaX> i wish I lived closer man lol im sorry
[05:25:40] <ssi> and my stupid basement is a swimming pool :(
[05:25:47] <GammaX> ssi look in /var/log/syslog anything for device detection?
[05:27:49] <ssi> nothing interesting
[05:28:11] <GammaX> does it have any info on any devices in there?
[05:28:13] <GammaX> mesa or nic
[05:28:15] <ssi> no
[05:28:20] <ssi> I'm done with it
[05:28:39] <ssi> it'll get fixed when either pcw pops in and tells me exactly what's wrong or when I throw this out the window and buy a new machine
[05:29:54] <GammaX> ssi try resetting your bios to default settings if possible. one last thing id try fore the night.
[05:30:20] <ssi> there's nothing in the bios
[05:30:26] <GammaX> it cant hurt
[05:30:31] <ssi> yea it can
[05:31:00] <GammaX> lies
[05:32:44] <GammaX> how much do you think steel or aluminum square tubing goes for? small stuff 1/8 x1'
[05:32:47] <GammaX> 1"*
[05:32:50] <ssi> steel is much cheaper
[05:33:02] <ssi> steel 1x1 16ga wall is about $11/20'
[05:33:13] <GammaX> damn!
[05:33:20] <GammaX> im doin steel then!
[05:33:22] <ssi> yeah
[05:33:24] <ssi> what for?
[05:33:42] <GammaX> Well I got an rf 45 and I wanna make it as much of a machining center I can...
[05:33:49] <ssi> for an enclosure?
[05:33:56] <GammaX> wanna make a MUCH bigger enclosure
[05:34:31] <ssi> you have a metal supermarket nearby?
[05:34:42] <GammaX> yeah they deliver for free too
[05:34:54] <ssi> I've never tried to get them to deliver
[05:35:04] <ssi> but I always was under the impression that you have to buy a fair bit to get delivery
[05:35:11] <GammaX> is there realy a place called metal supermarket?
[05:35:18] <ssi> yes
[05:35:23] <GammaX> lol

[05:35:54] <ssi> Cut to size
[05:35:56] <ssi> Fast Delivery or Local Pickup!
[05:35:59] <ssi> we don't have what you need we'll source the material for you.
[05:36:01] <ssi> see, they deliver
[05:36:02] <GammaX> and the place I bought a 2x5x12' bar of 6065 t6 delivered it for free
[05:36:04] <ssi> i thought you were serious :P
[05:36:08] <GammaX> cost me about 240?
[05:36:20] <ssi> yea not surprising
[05:36:24] <ssi> that's a big heavy hunk of aluminum
[05:36:50] <GammaX> yeah nutin near me
[05:36:53] <ssi> I buy stock for them for some of my qty jobs
[05:36:59] <GammaX> no i think they will deliver anything the next day for free...
[05:36:59] <ssi> and I get them to cut it to length for me too
[05:37:07] <ssi> cause their bandsaw cuts nice and square
[05:37:13] <ssi> and they don't charge extra for the cuts
[05:37:17] <GammaX> yeah I wish mine did.
[05:37:30] <ssi> I buy 2" roundbar 6061 at 2-3/8" lenghts
[05:37:32] <ssi> 100pc at a time
[05:37:54] <ssi> and they even deburr every cut :P
[05:38:51] <Jymmm> and the cost per piece?
[05:38:55] <ssi> not cheap
[05:38:58] <ssi> about $4.50 I think
[05:39:29] <GammaX> I lied before.
[05:39:34] <Jymmm> well, think of the labor you're saving
[05:39:37] <ssi> Jymmm: exactly
[05:39:41] <GammaX> I paid 300 for 145 pound bar of alum 6061
[05:39:52] Guest22116 is now known as cevad
[05:39:57] <Jymmm> so $4.5 CTL and deburred, not bad at all
[05:40:00] <ssi> and since someone's paying me to make the parts, it's cheaper for them if I have the supplier cut them
[05:40:11] cevad is now known as Vadec
[05:40:13] <ssi> plus my workholding is fiddly on that job
[05:40:19] <Jymmm> is it clean alum?
[05:40:33] <ssi> it's held in a 2" step chuck collet only .25" deep
[05:40:35] <Jymmm> like soapy clean?
[05:40:40] <ssi> so it really needs to be square
[05:40:44] <ssi> Jymmm: uhm, I don't think so?
[05:40:47] <ssi> it's raw extruded round bar
[05:40:51] <Jymmm> ah
[05:41:13] <Jymmm> what I call "mill clean" =)
[05:42:59] <GammaX> anyone have some suggestions on how to get work for grand opening machine shop?
[05:43:08] <GammaX> and how much to charge...
[05:43:18] <ssi> Jymmm: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BJeqdJrCYAAkn0L.jpg:large
[05:43:28] <ssi> as I receive it from the supplier, finished product
[05:47:50] <archivist> having a local cnc cutting metal supplier is useful :)
[06:12:08] <toastydeath> Gamma-x, what kind of work are you doing
[06:12:22] <toastydeath> how much experience do you have, etc
[06:19:27] <archivist> Gamma-x, work out how much you want to earn a year add your overheads, divide by the number of real working days(about 240) and then you have a day rate add a bit for profit, investment etc
[06:20:26] <archivist> it then you find out why larger companies charge so much per hour
[06:20:43] <toastydeath> our shop rate was 60-75/hr depending on what was being done
[06:20:48] <toastydeath> grinders cost more per hour than mills, etc
[06:21:47] <toastydeath> (cost of machine time)
[06:22:52] <toastydeath> also the reason experience is important is because if you don't accurately know how much time a job is going to take, you can't quote
[06:25:04] <ssi> that's the hardest part
[06:26:20] <archivist> working out the quote can take a significant time, a one man shop is not making stuff while quoting (unless he has lots of cnc)
[06:27:47] <Loetmichel> mornin
[06:27:58] <toastydeath> what do you tell the customer when they ask for the price, though
[06:28:17] <archivist> depends :)
[06:28:36] <toastydeath> like, both shops I've been at billed for everything
[06:28:45] <toastydeath> the quote and all office work, the machining, etc
[06:29:05] <toastydeath> it was just balled into the shop rate
[06:29:58] <archivist> yes that is the overheads I was talking about, rent phone, tax etc
[06:30:25] <toastydeath> right, i wasn't disagreeing, i was confused about why you were bringing up that he's not making anything while quoting
[06:30:47] <toastydeath> how do you get work without the ability to price parts
[06:30:49] <archivist> losing while quoting
[06:31:04] <archivist> advertising too
[06:31:11] <toastydeath> losing what while you're quoting
[06:31:17] <archivist> breakdown time
[06:31:19] <toastydeath> you're not losing money, you're billing that time into the job
[06:31:40] <archivist> a percentage of quotes you do not get
[06:31:42] <toastydeath> plus a factor for lost quotes
[06:32:07] <archivist> I would love a ballpark number for that
[06:32:25] <toastydeath> ?
[06:32:28] <Loetmichel> *grrr* that wasn't a good idea to let the 50ccm motorcycle "sleep" outside for 5 months... just bought a new insurance and charged the battery... (8,7Ah into a 5 Ah battery: THAT was EMPTY!) now tried to start it... *IGGIGIIIGGIGIGIGIGIGIGIG*... *IGGIGIIIGGIGIGIGIGIGIGIG* ... nothin, not even a single ignition... :-(
[06:32:30] <toastydeath> what do you mean, you have all the data
[06:32:52] <toastydeath> # of drawings that came in, time spent on the drawings, # of contracts won and the average profit per contract
[06:33:27] <toastydeath> over a year it's pretty stable
[06:34:34] <toastydeath> i haven't worked for but I've talked to some guys who ran repair who were able to just charge by however long it took, but they had a reputation
[06:34:58] <toastydeath> i guess if you're a one man shop and had the experience that would be the way to go
[06:37:19] <archivist> if your work is vary varied your quote to actual job ratio varies too, never had an average I could use yet
[06:39:38] <Jymmm> ssi: Damn, that's not bad at all
[06:41:40] <archivist> Loetmichel, had a similar problem yesterday, spectrum analyser not been switched on since 2009, had to reseat connectors to get the 5v working
[06:42:42] <ssi> Jymmm: yea I've always been happy with what I get from them
[06:42:57] <Loetmichel> archivist: thats less work than draining all the fuel out of the motorcycla, cleaning the spark plugs and disassemble the carburetor and put it in the ultrasound ;-)
[06:44:22] <Jymmm> ssi: Take the hint http://www.ebay.com/itm/Clear-Silicone-Keyboard-Cover-Skin-for-imac-US-Version-Apple-Desktop-PC-/250910069917?pt=US_Keyboard_Protectors&hash=item3a6b67d49d
[06:44:38] <Jymmm> ssi: workgreat too
[06:45:17] * Loetmichel will drive his wife to the airport soon (a week philly again for the company) and then start working on the motorcycle... the weather over here in german should be better now they say in the radio ;-)
[06:45:35] <Loetmichel> +y
[06:45:42] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: Are oyu gonna clean the house EARLY this time?
[06:46:04] <Loetmichel> maybe ;-)
[06:46:18] <Jymmm> How much trouble dod you get into last time?
[06:46:30] <Jymmm> and how late were you picking her up?
[06:46:38] <Loetmichel> not much. a bit of angry looks ;-)
[06:46:46] <Loetmichel> seh took a cab ;-)
[06:46:48] <Loetmichel> she
[06:47:11] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: You better bring her flowers this time =)
[06:47:15] <ssi> Jymmm: lol
[06:47:26] <Loetmichel> why?
[06:47:38] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: Dude, bonus points
[06:48:17] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: ya fucked up last time, she's gonna expect it this time, This is your chance to earn extra credit =)
[06:48:20] <Loetmichel> flowers would just makle her suspcious ;-)
[06:48:34] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: That's ok, let her be.
[06:48:52] <Loetmichel> i fuck up EVERY time, so thats nothing new to her ;-)
[06:48:55] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: doesn't have to be roses, daisies work too
[06:49:49] <Jymmm> ssi: They work great, have them on all the keyboards. just wash in the sink with soapy water and air dry
[06:50:10] <Jymmm> ssi: and this is in the garage too
[06:50:10] <ssi> probably wouldn't be a terrible idea
[06:50:13] <Loetmichel> and tha last 40 roses are still (dried up) on the window sill in the living room (= wifes work room)
[06:50:19] <ssi> *especially* in the garage
[06:50:24] <ssi> I ruin keyboards with coolant
[06:50:36] <Jymmm> ssi: keeps crap out of them too
[06:50:52] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: Yep, see she likes these things.
[06:51:21] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: EXTRA EXRA CREDIT??? jewelry
[06:51:32] <Loetmichel> do i look like rockefeller?
[06:51:33] <Loetmichel> ;-)
[06:51:53] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: might even get luckky too =)
[06:52:10] <Loetmichel> btw: SHE pays the rent here... she has about 3 times my paycheck ;-)
[06:52:23] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: It doens't matter.
[06:53:03] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: Find a oendant ro broach
[06:53:08] <Jymmm> pendant

[12:29:18] <Tom_itx> not sure those would be appropriate or not
[12:29:36] <jthornton> what does it not do correctly
[12:29:56] <mario_> No one uses the LinuxCNC from Germany. Too bad. I am otherwise very happy with it.
[12:30:29] <jthornton> there are many that use LinuxCNC from Germany but they may not be on the IRC
[12:30:29] <Tom_itx> i'm gonna have to sit down today and figure that out exactly. i think during auto mode it will allow a restart after a pause with the spindle still off
[12:30:46] <Tom_itx> but there may be another condition that axis doesn't like as well
[12:31:01] <Tom_itx> it does seem to hang axis when it happens
[12:31:16] <jthornton> mario_, there is a German section on the forum
[12:31:54] <jthornton> Tom_itx, I'd think that is normal
[12:32:00] <Tom_itx> lately i've just avoided using the spindle button
[12:32:09] <Tom_itx> well axis doesn't like it at all
[12:32:26] <jthornton> a restart with the spindle off?
[12:32:36] <Tom_itx> i think that will trigger it, yes
[12:32:47] <Tom_itx> machine is off atm or i'd check

[12:35:15] <mario_> jthornton< have you been there? An entry of 2010! Not very encouraging
[12:35:36] <Tom_itx> not a restart, but a continue after a pause in auto mode with the spindle off
[12:36:09] <jthornton> mario_, it's worth a shot
[12:36:41] <jthornton> if you can speak Russian there is an active LinuxCNC forum in Russia
[12:38:14] <psha> really active
[12:38:19] <psha> and they also have translated docs :)
[12:39:18] <Tom_itx> or even if i'm in manual mode and using a wiggler to set the x y offsets. turning the spindle on and off there will cause axis to hang and take up to 2 min to save the offset values to the table
[12:41:08] <jthornton> turning the spindle on and off with your pendant?
[12:41:18] <Tom_itx> yes
[12:43:43] <Tom_itx> i wonder if 'toggle' is messing with the logic since it's a push on push off function
[12:44:54] <jthornton> I wouldn't think so, I have coolant set up like that on my lathe and I can use either the Axis check box or the pyvcp button and they stay in sync

[12:46:44] <jthornton> it should be the same as a hardware button once it gets to hal

[16:31:34] <ktchk> torque of stepper motor 1/2 micro step compare to no microstep
[16:35:16] <cradek> half stepping works much better than full stepping
[16:35:35] <cradek> full stepping has bad resonance problems
[16:35:47] <pcw_home> 1/2 step has a little higher torque but its uneven (more when 2 windings are energized)
[16:36:14] -!- sumpfralle has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[16:36:53] <pcw_home> I think hardly anyone uses full stepping because of the resonance problems

[16:38:52] <pcw_home> Raising the ustep ratio reduces the resonance problem (and noise)
[16:39:55] <ktchk> slow turning need torque so half step is the best?
[16:44:43] <pcw_home> Dont know, full step is probably bad, 1/2 to 1/256 step may be better depending on what your drive can do
[16:44:44] <pcw_home> 1/2 step average torque will be a little bit higher than higher ustep ratios but will suffer more from resonance
[16:46:01] <pcw_home> in other words, try it with your hardware and see :-)

[17:07:08] <IchGuckLive> hi all B)
[17:12:41] <pcw_home> No
[17:13:48] <ssi> pcw_home: I have this junky lenovo SFF machine, and it's got a broadcom tg3 onboard ethernet... when I install the 5i25, the ethernet goes away
[17:13:55] <ssi> no longer shows up in lspci
[17:14:13] <ssi> also I can't make the hm2_pci driver load with the '25 in the box
[17:14:29] <ssi> just wondering if you have any sage magic words before I chuck it out the window and drive 2 hours to buy a different machine
[17:17:08] <IchGuckLive> i use IBM or fujitsu mashines there are cheep working and always avaylable
[17:17:53] -!- mhaberler has quit [Quit: mhaberler]
[17:17:54] <ssi> I'm probably going to buy another dell 755, as i just used one and it worked well
[17:18:03] <pcw_home> No idea (I didn't know Lenovo made motherboards)
[17:18:30] <ssi> alright, out the window it goes then :D
[17:18:42] <ssi> I'm hoping microcenter will have some refurb dells in stock
[17:18:44] <IchGuckLive> dell is triky 2 as they manafacture the same number with different parts
[17:18:56] <ssi> if not, I'll have to drive to tigerdirect, and it's maybe 3 hours one way
[17:19:31] <IchGuckLive> ssi: isent there a secondITstore selling with shipmant
[17:19:38] <pcw_home> If its a real incompatibility (and not just bad) I would like to know
[17:20:03] <ssi> pcw_home: ok... let me know what info I can gather for you
[17:20:40] <ssi> pcw_home: also, what state should the LEDs be in on the 5i25 in normal operation?
[17:20:48] <ssi> I get an INIT, /DONE flash, then they go out
[17:20:50] <ssi> which I think is correct
[17:20:52] <ssi> and then no lights
[17:20:54] <pcw_home> off
[17:20:58] <ssi> ok
[17:22:24] <pcw_home> One person had a bad PS and got both on (theres a 3.3V reset chip that needs at least 3.1V or so to get out of reset)
[17:22:58] <pcw_home> what is the broadcom chip PN?
[17:23:32] <ssi> BCM5787
[17:23:52] <ssi> I just put the '25 back in the box
[17:24:06] <generic_nick|2> ouch, hangover
[17:24:19] <ssi> it shows up in lspci as 0a:09.0 DPIO module: Device 2718:5125
[17:25:02] <ssi> now my cursory testing just involves running halcmd, and doing a loadrt hm2_pci config=""
[17:25:06] <ssi> and that fails
[17:25:13] <pcw_home> Hm BCM5787 is PCIE not sure how we can interfere with it unless its maybe a BIOS issue
[17:25:15] <ssi> but maybe I need to do more than that
[17:26:32] <pcw_home> you need to loadrt hostmot2 first
[17:26:46] <ssi> doh right
[17:28:58] <ssi> yeah that worked with less complaining :P
[17:31:27] <ssi> pcw_home: got any details on where there was info about configuring the '25 to drive g540 with a chargepump stepgen?
[17:31:41] <ssi> if I config="", I get stepgens 0-3, and 5-9
[17:31:55] <ssi> and it looks like 9 is an output only (no dir), and that's supposed to be the chargepump one
[17:32:02] <ssi> but I'd rather only have 0-3 and 9, and I'm not sure how to do that
[17:34:11] <pcw_home> you want to enable 5 stepgens (0 through 4)
[17:34:59] <pcw_home> 4 should be the chargpump one
[17:35:01] <pcw_home> (what does dmesg say)
[17:35:05] <ssi> looks that way
[17:35:10] <ssi> #4 has no direction line
[17:35:24] <ssi> and I seem to have gotten a pair of encoders out of the deal too
[17:35:28] <ssi> which I don't need...
[17:35:35] <pcw_home> right it for chargepump use
[17:35:40] <pcw_home> its
[17:35:47] <ssi> yeah... excellent
[17:35:54] <ssi> how does it know I don't want five full stepgens?
[17:36:04] <ssi> I guess it assumes in the g540 firmware that I know what I'm talking about
[17:36:24] <pcw_home> you will have 5 stepgens
[17:36:26] <IchGuckLive> pcw_home: does the 2.5.2 lnuxcnc now got the driver and pin fpr the 5i25 7i76 card
[17:36:48] <IchGuckLive> or still neded sidepackets
[17:36:53] <pcw_home> it has since 2.5.0
[17:37:07] <pcw_home> other than pncconf
[17:38:00] <generic_nick|2> is it normal for my pid values to be like 2,1,.005 on my 4th axis when the same motor and drive was 140.90, and 4 on my x,y, and z axes?
[17:38:01] <IchGuckLive> o
[17:38:14] <ssi> there we go... thanks pcw :D
[17:38:30] <pcw_home> Yes if you don t normalize the PID
[17:38:51] <generic_nick|2> i assume the pid values are related to the unit of measure, tight? so being in degrees instead of inches?
[17:39:25] <pcw_home> Yes
[17:40:20] <generic_nick|2> gotcha
[17:40:35] <pcw_home> You normalize the PID in linear axis by setting the PWM/DAC scale to machine units per second
[17:41:19] <generic_nick|2> should i do that, or does it not really matter?
[17:41:54] <pcw_home> probably need to set the PWM/DAC scale to degrees per second on a rotary axis but thats a WAG
[17:42:12] <generic_nick|2> it's being somewhat of a pain to tune...
[17:42:53] <generic_nick|2> WAG?
[17:43:10] <pcw_home> it does not matter, just makes it easier to guess PID values with inch/mm/degree axis
[17:43:19] <generic_nick|2> gotcha
[17:43:23] <pcw_home> Wild Assed Guess
[17:43:26] <generic_nick|2> ah
[17:44:08] <generic_nick|2> when the servo comes to a stop, it kinda occilates to a stop
[17:44:40] <pcw_home> If you dont normalize for example a machine in MM will have 25x lower PID gains
[17:44:41] <generic_nick|2> like it overcorrects a bunch of times, but a little less each time
[17:45:02] <pcw_home> Velocity or torque mode?
[17:45:29] <generic_nick|2> hmm good question, i dont recall. the drives are digital and you change that in the software
[17:45:44] <generic_nick|2> ill have to find the serial cable and download the software to check it
[17:46:06] <pcw_home> makes a big difference to how the LinuxCNC side tuning is done

[17:46:20] <generic_nick|2> the motor on my 4th axis is the old motor and drive from my x axis
[17:47:06] <generic_nick|2> it had a decent tune, but then i swapped the 7i33 out for the 7i48 and everything changed
[17:48:54] <generic_nick|2> ill go dig up the cable and try and find the software again
[17:49:33] <generic_nick|2> there are pid gains in the drives as well, changed via software
[18:02:11] <generic_nick|2> found the cable, but i sure wish i had a computer with a serial port lol
[18:08:00] <Tom_itx> would a typo like this: "toggle.0.in < or2.0.out" instead of the <= cause the toggle input not to work or is the < included as an alternate assignment symbol?

[18:13:00] <Tom_itx> yeah
[18:13:01] <Tom_itx> ok
[18:13:13] <Tom_itx> even if the order is mixed up in the hal line?
[18:13:23] <generic_nick|2> dont think that matters

[19:13:21] <Gamma-x> oh nice!
[19:13:41] <Gamma-x> next question.... is there a guide to hooking up an external controller such as a ps3 controller to use as a pendant?
[19:17:16] <cradek> people use all sorts of usb-connected game controllers
[19:17:32] <pcw_home> OK flight booked
[19:17:40] <cradek> yay
[19:21:05] <Tom_itx> wonder how many are coming for the whole week

[20:49:30] -!- mhaberler [mhaberler!~mhaberler@macbook.stiwoll.mah.priv.at] has joined #linuxcnc
[20:54:41] <pcw_home> may need the drive tuned (if its in velocity mode)
[20:55:24] -!- kmrhb has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[20:55:44] <pcw_home> a rotary axis probably has very low inertia so will be tough to tune in torque mode
[20:56:13] <generic_nick|2> i can rotate the servo about 10 degrees without any resistance from the servo
[20:56:20] <generic_nick|2> or at least very little resistance
[20:56:38] <generic_nick|2> after that it starts fighting back
[20:57:16] <pcw_home> Sounds like the drive is either in torque mode, or the gain is too low
[20:57:56] <generic_nick|2> i cant change the mode like i thought i could in the drive
[20:58:10] <pcw_home> Torque mode only?
[20:58:15] <generic_nick|2> i dunno
[20:58:21] <generic_nick|2> i cant use ff2 at all
[20:58:32] <generic_nick|2> i can put in a little ff1
[20:58:40] <generic_nick|2> doesnt do much though
[20:59:05] <cradek> if it's velocity mode it should feel stiff without ANY help from the position loop
[20:59:06] <pcw_home> Sounds like the drive setup is wrong
[20:59:24] <cradek> yeah
[20:59:42] <generic_nick|2> the drive has preconfigured setups for the motor
[20:59:53] <generic_nick|2> i just select the motor in the dropdown menu
[21:00:03] <cradek> does it have a tach?
[21:00:09] <generic_nick|2> nope, resolver
[21:00:17] <generic_nick|2> resolver goes to the drive
[21:00:55] <generic_nick|2> no hals or tach
[21:01:36] <pcw_home> At the minimum you need to know what mode the drive is in
[21:02:45] <pcw_home> lots of AC drives have velocity mode without tachs
[21:04:34] <generic_nick|2> i cant find any info on the mode
[21:04:44] -!- tjb1 [tjb1!~tjb1@] has joined #linuxcnc
[21:05:07] <pcw_home> the tuning procedure on the linuxCNC side is completely different for the two modes
[21:06:27] <generic_nick|2> i dont know how to tell, there is nothing in the manual about the mode
[21:06:35] <cradek> is the manual online?

[21:11:52] <cradek> Analog +-10V interface -- velocity or torque control
[21:14:21] <generic_nick|2> yea, i just dont see how to change it
[21:15:07] <generic_nick|2> ah i think i fingered it out
[21:15:09] <cradek> yeah I agree it doesn't say in here
[21:15:54] <mhaberler> ssi: around?
[21:16:54] <generic_nick|2> i think i got it cradek
[21:17:18] <generic_nick|2> huh wait a minute, it keeps changing back
[21:18:39] <generic_nick|2> ok got it
[21:18:48] <generic_nick|2> it had to be disabled first
[21:19:06] <generic_nick|2> it is now in velocity mode
[21:19:51] <cradek> does it feel stiff?
[21:20:41] <generic_nick|2> it did
[21:20:54] <generic_nick|2> then it started overcorrecting and it ferrored
[21:21:19] <cradek> set your linuxcnc tuning to all zeroes and see if it feels right
[21:21:58] <cradek> it shouldn't oscillate or otherwise freak out, it should just feel solid
[21:22:08] <generic_nick|2> it's creeping
[21:22:14] <cradek> that's ok
[21:22:26] -!- mk0_ has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[21:22:30] <generic_nick|2> felt stiff in the one direction that it wasnt creeping in
[21:22:30] <cradek> there's probably a balance adjustment you can use to make it (nearly) stop

[21:23:42] <generic_nick|2> there's a setting for "required velocity command at that voltage (10v)"
[21:24:00] <generic_nick|2> im guessing that should be the max rpm of the motor?
[21:24:20] <generic_nick|2> to start anyways?
[21:25:56] <cradek> do you want your rotary table to turn that fast?
[21:26:12] <cradek> you should scale it so you're using 8-9v for your desired rapid speed
[21:26:48] -!- vladimirek has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[21:26:49] <generic_nick|2> gotcha. yea, i want ot to spin as fast as possible (doing mass production work, every second counts)
[21:27:05] <cradek> then I guess so
[21:27:25] <cradek> rotaries don't have much mass so you can probably spin it pretty fast
[21:28:05] <generic_nick|2> yea
[21:28:56] -!- RagingCompute has quit [Quit: Bye!]
[21:30:50] <generic_nick|2> should i reduce the gains in the drive so i can add some in emc?
[21:31:13] <cradek> which gains are you talking about?
[21:31:54] <cradek> you should make the velocity response as stiff as possible without oscillation, and balance it, before you do ANY position mode tuning
[21:32:21] <generic_nick|2> position loop gain, damping, feedforward gain, and response
[21:32:35] <cradek> the numbers don't add or anything like that -- every loop depends on the loop(s) underneath to be tuned
[21:33:11] <cradek> pretty sure the drive doesn't even have a position loop in this mode...??
[21:33:18] -!- phantoneD [phantoneD!~destroy@a95-92-84-28.cpe.netcabo.pt] has joined #linuxcnc
[21:33:51] <generic_nick|2> it has settings for it lol
[21:34:04] <generic_nick|2> but yea, doesnt make sense
[21:34:05] <cradek> well I've never seen this hardware, but that seems wrong
[21:34:22] <cradek> the drive might have step/dir mode option or something?
[21:35:12] <generic_nick|2> yes, and it's programable
[21:35:35] <cradek> guessing position loop tuning only applies to that setup, then

[21:36:33] -!- Farthen has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
[21:36:55] <generic_nick|2> it doesnt oscillate and it holds well
[21:37:39] <cradek> did you get it balanced so it is pretty much stopped when your dac output is 0?
[21:37:50] -!- Farthen [Farthen!~Farthen@cassiopeia.uberspace.de] has joined #linuxcnc
[21:38:15] <generic_nick|2> no, there is no setting for bias
[21:38:27] <cradek> hmm weird
[21:38:50] <cradek> as long as it's minor the position loop will hold it, but you'll see minor dithering
[21:39:09] <cradek> no problem
[21:39:30] <generic_nick|2> yea i put .05 in p and it's holding fine
[21:39:38] <cradek> go ahead and work on tuning in linuxcnc now, it'll be P and FF1
[21:39:48] <cradek> yay, now you're on your way
[21:40:06] <cradek> nice to tune rotaries because they don't have ends of travel
[21:41:04] <generic_nick|2> haha i know, i love that part. no runaway table
[21:41:11] <generic_nick|2> thanks for the help.
[21:41:30] <generic_nick|2> it's spinning at 9000 degrees per minute so far, no problem
[21:41:33] <cradek> welcome
[21:42:25] <generic_nick|2> gunna bump up the velocity in the ini and see how close i can get to 50rpm
[21:42:50] <generic_nick|2> which is the max speed that the motor will push it due to gear reduction

[22:08:53] <generic_nick|2> is the angle supposed to increase past 360 degrees as the rotary spins? or is it supposed to loop back to zero? not sure what the "standard" is.
[22:10:40] <SWPadnos> there's an option with the words "wrapped rotary" in it, which sets the wrap-around mode
[22:11:30] <generic_nick|2> cool ill look into it, thanks.
[22:11:36] <SWPadnos> in any case, I believe that if you do a single move that does multiple rotations, the angle will go past 360 (something like G1 X10 A3600 to do 10 turns of a 1 unit pitch screw)
[22:12:00] <generic_nick|2> should i just leave it as is?

[22:13:10] <generic_nick|2> fair enough
[22:14:29] <generic_nick|2> seems like i got it tuned enough to run
[22:15:12] <cradek> I bet only AXIS has full support for wrapped rotary mode
[22:15:28] <cradek> the motion will be right, but I bet all the other guis will have incorrect DROs

[23:52:04] <GammaX-Shop> what are some normal type numbers for velocity and acceleration for steppers? Im having a VERY hard time tuning this
[23:53:23] <ssi> depends on the machine :P
[23:53:26] <ssi> what values do you have now?
[23:53:38] <GammaX-Shop> also it is not accurate at all and I put in all the information as per specs... leadscrew pitch 5.05
[23:53:48] <ssi> mhaberler: I'm back!
[23:53:55] <GammaX-Shop> step per rev 200, microstepping .5
[23:54:03] <mhaberler> hi ssi
[23:54:10] <ssi> hey
[23:54:14] <mhaberler> saw you question on kernel headers
[23:54:36] <GammaX-Shop> pulley 1-1, velocity 4 accell 75
[23:54:40] <ssi> oh right... I was asking because a lot of the OMAP_MUX defines are in headers in the kernel source
[23:54:44] <mhaberler> the userland threads flavors - (xenomai, rtpreempt) dont need them
[23:54:45] <ssi> and it'd be convenient not to have to recreate them
[23:55:11] <GammaX-Shop> im in test mode and told it to do a back and fworth 1 inch but it only goes about half an inch...
[23:55:44] <GammaX-Shop> 2 and a half turns maby?
[23:56:48] -!- stsydow has quit [Client Quit]
[23:57:13] <mhaberler> you mean the port addresses are accessible only if you install kernel headers? I remember something similar with the rpi
[23:57:18] -!- asdfasd has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
[23:57:21] <ssi> mhaberler: no, that's not the case
[23:57:38] <ssi> mhaberler: I mean I have a bunch of defines with the register addresses in them
[23:57:39] <mhaberler> oh, ok
[23:57:45] <ssi> mhaberler: but those are already defined somewhere in kernel source
[23:58:06] <ssi> was just thinking that if linuxcnc already builds with kernel headers on the include path, I could eliminate some of that duplication
[23:58:08] <mhaberler> good enough for a start, we can get clever later
[23:58:11] <ssi> sure
[23:58:50] <GammaX-Shop> ssi: any thoughts on my situation?
[23:59:20] <mhaberler> so I understand you're coming to wichita too?
[23:59:33] <ssi> GammaX-Shop put in the numbers as you think they should be, and then jog the axis and measure the actual vs expected jog
[23:59:39] <ssi> do some math and correct the steps/inch
[23:59:42] <ssi> mhaberler: I'm going to try
[23:59:47] <mhaberler> super
