[10:27:07] <seltecc> this video show it...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giJUiZVTXas
[10:29:03] <awallin> seltecc: what's the side-bar CAM feature called? and what language is it written in?
[10:31:11] <seltecc> @awallin...I really don know much, maby he uses glade to create an interactive sidepanel in linuxcnc

[10:31:45] <awallin> ok. that looks useful for more advanced CAM algorithms also..
[10:33:41] <awallin> is the guy who made that youtube vid on IRC?
[10:35:17] <seltecc> @awallin ....not that I know of, I ve tried to kontakt him on facebook but he has not replyed so far...(3 weeks)
[10:35:44] <awallin> hm, ok
[10:36:31] <seltecc> really useful feature this sidepanel.....
[10:36:59] -!- mablae has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[10:39:21] <awallin> there are a lot of these wizards http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Simple_LinuxCNC_G-Code_Generators but that GUI looks quite good
[10:40:39] <awallin> maybe the code is this: https://github.com/cnc-club/linuxcnc-features
[10:41:13] -!- archivist_herron has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[10:41:45] <awallin> worth a look/trial I guess
[10:43:16] <seltecc> cool, nice sites ......

[11:32:19] <jthornton> anyone know how to calculate the F word when using inverse time mode?
[11:35:53] <awallin> one is length/time the other is time/length
[11:35:59] <awallin> in some suitable units :)
[11:38:23] <jthornton> In inverse time feed rate mode, an F word means the move should be completed in [one divided by the F number] minutes.
[11:38:58] <jthornton> so calculate the effective length of the move?
[11:41:16] <awallin> yes I think actual feedrate will depend on the length of the move, in the inverse time-feed mode
[11:42:02] <jthornton> ok, that is kinda what I was thinking I needed to do
[11:42:45] <jthornton> I know the radius of the part on the rotary and it is just X, Z and A moves
[11:45:19] <jthornton> is it possible to set up permissions so an operator could run LinuxCNC but not edit a file?
[11:46:21] <awallin> if linuxcnc needs to write to that file it might be complex, otherwise it is easy
[11:47:19] <jthornton> just thinking about it Touchy does pretty much what he wants as there is no editor for Touchy

[14:39:48] <CHNCguy> morning guys! :)
[14:40:00] <seltecc> Hello
[14:40:06] <humble_sea_bass> yo
[14:40:12] <CHNCguy> ;)
[14:41:08] <CHNCguy> can you run a mesa 7i76 card without the fpga pci-e card?
[14:41:16] <CHNCguy> just with your parallel port?
[14:41:20] <seltecc> do you have an idea how this guy used the sidepanel in linuxcnc?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giJUiZVTXas
[14:41:44] <CHNCguy> LOL i been trying to figure that out but with his lathe features
[14:42:05] <seltecc> how to install this sidepanel?
[14:42:38] <CHNCguy> He has a tutorial, but I cant understand it, he should have a link at the bottom right? in the info?
[14:42:48] <CHNCguy> I tried e-mailing him but he doesnt respond.
[14:43:09] <seltecc> me too
[14:43:57] <seltecc> @chncguy...do you mean the sidepanel?
[14:43:57] <CHNCguy> he usto respond, but once I asked him how to install it and get it work, he stopped. I have seen recent posts by him, so...he shouldnt be dead...
[14:44:22] <CHNCguy> ya, thats a freestanding gladevcp I think
[14:45:04] <seltecc> really, I thought so too.But I don t know how to get this...
[14:45:49] <CHNCguy> well from my understanding, its a part of linuxcnc, and you have to enable it and install it...not sure how... I am going to contact my buddy who is a linux Bad A$$ and see if he can help me out
[14:45:58] <CHNCguy> If I find out, ill let ya know ;)
[14:46:21] <seltecc> I have glade, but there you mhave to create all by yourself...
[14:46:38] <seltecc> nice, thx
[14:47:05] <CHNCguy> well its aparently in his files you just have to add them in your folders, but he is using 2.6.0 prerelease i think
[14:47:11] <CHNCguy> not the lockdown 2.5.3
[14:47:17] <CHNCguy> it may not work with 2.5.3
[14:47:45] <seltecc> I see...
[14:48:18] <seltecc> I am using 2.5.3... so I have to upgrade...
[14:48:38] <CHNCguy> well 2.6.0+ is developmental and probably buggy
[14:49:10] <seltecc> so I have to wait...
[14:49:38] <CHNCguy> well the features look great, but if he wont show anyone how to install them, its kind of pointless....
[14:49:53] <seltecc> But how does this guy do this?!
[14:49:56] <seltecc> yes
[14:50:03] <humble_sea_bass> do what

[14:59:48] <humble_sea_bass> i have to run off to a conference thing with my wife. later today I'll definitely be running through the instructions to see where that gets us
[15:00:00] <humble_sea_bass> your nick is on a post it note on my desk so I'

[15:33:43] <tjtr33> awallin, you got a link? i cant find at cnc-club.ru
[15:34:07] <awallin> https://github.com/cnc-club/linuxcnc-features
[15:34:28] <awallin> I'm not sure that is the latest version... latest commit 3 months ago
[15:35:07] <humble_sea_bass> is there a later package?
[15:35:25] <humble_sea_bass> last youtube from Nick is from Jan 17
[15:35:51] <awallin> I don't know. I don't remember this discussed on the mailinglist? but I may have missed it
[15:36:28] <humble_sea_bass> so that last commit is probably the latest and greatest
[15:36:28] <tjtr33> thx awallin , will look into it ( google translate is not much help so far )
[15:36:51] <awallin> there is also this https://github.com/nkp2169/linuxcnc-features but that is updated 8 months ago

[17:07:06] <tjtr33> hey i hope you had good luck in your presentation
[17:09:23] <CaptHindsight> I had a 2 axis stage, cnc and pneumatic controller in my carry on with several feet of cables, tubing etc
[17:10:03] <CaptHindsight> was only bag checked at O'hare
[17:12:23] <CaptHindsight> I'm not sure what the carry on weight limit is but I don't recall any scales were used
[17:14:04] <CaptHindsight> pcw_home: http://boundarydevices.com/products/sabre-lite-imx6-sbc/ with PCIe http://boundarydevices.com/products/nit6x_pcie/ but it's ~$250 for everything
[17:20:39] <CaptHindsight> so a mini-mill in a carry on bag is apparently fine

[17:23:11] <CaptHindsight> I never ordered one, they seem to use the same layout for all versions but only stuff extra parts
[17:24:35] <pcw_home> the EDM spec has PCIE also so its sort of expected

[17:29:41] <CaptHindsight> most of the consumers in China don't really know what they are buying, they pretty much just follow brands or just buy what they can afford
[17:30:16] <CaptHindsight> Allwinner is capturing the majority of the tablets in China for the second group
[17:30:28] <CaptHindsight> so all their parts end up ~$6ea

[17:32:14] -!- AR__ [AR__!~AR@] has joined #linuxcnc
[17:34:47] <pcw_home> Supposedly 3.14 kernels have Baytrail support so Ill try that when I get around to it
[17:35:51] <CaptHindsight> pcw_home: try sebs debs, he has 3.4 RTAI packaged for 12.04
[17:36:29] <CaptHindsight> not usre if 3.4 included that support of if it was skipper for some reason
[17:36:38] <CaptHindsight> usre/sure
[17:37:40] <pcw_home> I will (but I dont think that will work on baytrail)
[17:37:41] <pcw_home> It could also be some UEFI issue, the baytrail tablets are weird (32 bit UEFI on 64 bit processor)
[17:38:50] <pcw_home> Not sure if the MiniITX boards have the same UEFI as the Tablets but I wouls guess they do
[17:39:55] <CaptHindsight> the way it used to work was that you would license a BIOS toolkit and the source
[17:40:32] <CaptHindsight> you would rarely ever touch source, you would just check boxes with wanted/unwated feature and it would spit out a blob on the other end
[17:42:18] <CaptHindsight> so the UEFI in a tablet vs PC is from the same source but what features are ON/OFF is likely different

[20:18:28] <zeeshan> you have one inlet at 50C

[20:18:35] <archivist> or better if highly heat conductive cuddled in insulation
[20:18:45] <zeeshan> you want the exit to be 200C at any point aling the exit surface
[20:19:02] <zeeshan> thermodynamics says you can hit a theoretical temperature of 186C so i know its possible
[20:19:50] <zeeshan> since the cnc computers arent running anything

[20:29:42] <CHNCguy> hey guys, ;) i get crappy internet on the weekend.
[20:30:12] <CHNCguy> question tho, if i am running a 7i77 card, how does one hook up a spindle vfd to it? Along with encoder for speed and rigid tapping
[20:30:25] <CHNCguy> I dont see any spinena pins in the manual
[20:31:58] <awallin> this describes the linuxcnc side http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.5/html/examples/spindle.html
[20:32:18] <awallin> on the 7i77 you would just use free GPIO pins for example
[20:32:29] <awallin> depending on how you are steering the vfd
[20:32:54] <CHNCguy> i figured as much, Well i would use 0-10vdc for speed and simple relay for fwd and rev
[20:33:31] <zeeshan> why would you use the 7i77 to control your vfd
[20:33:34] <zeeshan> when you have modbus
[20:33:35] <zeeshan> :D
[20:33:50] <zeeshan> what vfd btw
[20:34:00] <CHNCguy> im new at linuxcnc, whatever is easier is my gameplan
[20:34:06] <CHNCguy> fanuc
[20:34:15] <zeeshan> model?
[20:34:29] <zeeshan> easiest would be 7i77
[20:34:37] <zeeshan> since its just wiring
[20:34:54] <zeeshan> with modbus you could do alot more though

[20:35:14] <CHNCguy> thanks for the link awallin
[20:36:17] <CHNCguy> i am not sure as to the details on what the drive wants, but most likely 0-10v for speed, and a terminal grounded for fwd or rev
[20:36:31] <CHNCguy> what about the encoder though? wire is to one of the 6?
[20:36:53] <pcw_home> fanuc encoder?
[20:37:05] <awallin> yes any encoder input on the 7i77 will do, just hook up in HAL to motion
[20:37:33] <CHNCguy> ok
[20:37:37] <CHNCguy> yes fanuc encoder
[20:37:49] <CHNCguy> for spindle speed and such
[20:37:50] <awallin> provided the encoder is a standard a/b/z type...
[20:37:51] <pcw_home> is it quadrature?
[20:38:03] <CHNCguy> i am retofitting a moriseiki mv35
[20:38:06] <CHNCguy> yes
[20:38:41] <pcw_home> those are differential so you will use all 8 pins on the 7I77 encoder interface
[20:39:44] <CHNCguy> so heres an interesting questions
[20:39:46] <CHNCguy> question
[20:39:53] <CHNCguy> how about the tool changer?
[20:39:59] <CHNCguy> the spindle needs to index
[20:40:10] <PetefromTn_> Ooh nice an MV35...WELCOME MAN!!
[20:40:21] <CHNCguy> ;)
[20:41:05] <PetefromTn_> I am doing a Cincinatti Arrow 500 VMC... still working on the toolchanger tho..
[20:41:54] <CHNCguy> I got a buddy that wants to give my a milacron 750, but I have only done some simple tool changers, but the mori seiki has a lot of logic with the tool changer
[20:42:16] <PetefromTn_> Yeah I can see that.. Sweet changer tho vertical rotary.
[20:42:35] <PetefromTn_> The milacron 750 does it have 30x20 travels?
[20:43:15] <CHNCguy> like first spindle stop, goto zXXX then index, then change to the tool, then swing tool down, then push tool piston out, then swing 180, then drop down, then swing 180 again, then 90, then retract, then lift tool back in caroussel
[20:43:20] <CHNCguy> yes it does
[20:43:47] <CHNCguy> I think 24" y, I am not really sure
[20:43:49] <pcw_home> CHNCguy: Fanuc drives? (hope they are A06B-6057 or earlier)
[20:43:56] <PetefromTn_> Damn that IS a lot of steps... I just have the standard rotary umbrella 20 tool...
[20:44:05] <awallin> there's classicladder, but maybe that's just for old-timers now - perhaps there's a simpler way to program state-machines in HAL now...
[20:44:11] <CHNCguy> ya, i don't even know where to start LOL

[20:44:38] <CHNCguy> not sure of the spindle drive, but what if they are later than the 6057?
[20:45:09] <PetefromTn_> IS your spindle a DC servomotor?
[20:45:12] <CHNCguy> ya but the machine weighs like 8k and its gonna be a B to get in my shop if I drive down and pick it up
[20:45:20] <CHNCguy> ac spindle
[20:45:21] <pcw_home> 6057 and earlier are analog 6058 and later are digital
[20:45:30] <PetefromTn_> That's actually kinda light my arrow 500 is 7k..
[20:46:24] <CHNCguy> i may be wrong, maybe its 9k
[20:46:36] <PetefromTn_> for the milacron or the mori?
[20:46:59] <CHNCguy> the milacron 750
[20:47:07] <PetefromTn_> where are you located?
[20:47:12] <CHNCguy> wait, what..,.LOL
[20:47:19] <CHNCguy> im in Florida
[20:47:29] <PetefromTn_> Oh man I am jealous..
[20:47:41] <PetefromTn_> trying to sell my house now to move BACK to Florida.
[20:47:47] <PetefromTn_> Used to live in PSL area...
[20:47:59] <CHNCguy> lol its nice down here ;), where u at?
[20:47:59] <CHNCguy> PSL? Im in pensacola area
[20:48:18] <PetefromTn_> yeah Port Saint Lucie... Central southern east coast...
[20:48:32] <CHNCguy> nice place ;)
[20:48:48] <PetefromTn_> yeah so it pensacola at least what I remember of it.
[20:49:00] <CHNCguy> yes its nice ;)
[20:49:09] <PetefromTn_> SO you say you have built a few machines before then?
[20:49:25] <CHNCguy> well quite a bit, but not with linuxcnc
[20:49:37] <CHNCguy> mostly with fanuc, mach3, and centroid
[20:49:38] <PetefromTn_> all commercial machines?
[20:49:52] <CHNCguy> all but 3 were large industrial machines
[20:50:16] <CHNCguy> i have done about 20+ retrofits with various controls, linux is totally new for me ;)
[20:50:23] <PetefromTn_> did you put mach3 control on industrial machines?
[20:50:40] <CHNCguy> on 2 cnc 5x10 routers yes
[20:50:43] <CHNCguy> with toolchangers
[20:51:00] <CHNCguy> and a lathe, but mach 3 for lathe is garbage

[20:51:38] <PetefromTn_> well it certainly sounds like you should have no trouble here with it then.
[20:51:39] <CHNCguy> see everything is kinda backwards with linux, but its free, and very customizable, so this is why I am trying to learn it for my next machines
[20:52:01] <PetefromTn_> I am biased to be sure but linuxCNC so far is WAY better than Mach3...
[20:52:15] <CHNCguy> ohh absolutely better, harder to setup too LOL
[20:52:22] <PetefromTn_> yeah a bit..
[20:52:36] <CHNCguy> how many machines have u retrofitted?
[20:53:12] -!- dnaleromj [dnaleromj!~dnaleromj@] has joined #linuxcnc
[20:53:21] <CHNCguy> I am currently finishing up my 2 CHNC lathes
[20:53:22] <PetefromTn_> two, I built an RF45 Chinese bedmill into a CNC mill and then sold it to purchase this VMC.. It is currently running and making parts but need spindle feedback to get the toolchanger working.
[20:53:30] <zeeshan> PetefromTn_:
[20:53:34] <zeeshan> how much did you end up selling it for?
[20:53:35] <zeeshan> ;p
[20:53:52] <PetefromTn_> I sold it for like $6k with tooling...
[20:53:59] <zeeshan> someone got a good deal
[20:53:59] <zeeshan> ;P
[20:54:03] <PetefromTn_> yup.
[20:54:19] <zeeshan> how about your vmc?
[20:54:20] <PetefromTn_> It actually worked okay once I got the bugs out of it and I refinished the whole damn machine...
[20:54:31] <PetefromTn_> how about it?
[20:54:35] <zeeshan> how much did you get it for
[20:54:39] <zeeshan> i'm looking for vmcs
[20:54:40] <PetefromTn_> I stole it...
[20:54:43] <CHNCguy> lol
[20:54:46] <zeeshan> and for some reason i think i can get one for $5k
[20:54:52] <zeeshan> but i cant find any near by.
[20:54:53] <CHNCguy> put it in your pocket and ran LOL
[20:54:56] <PetefromTn_> I paid a LOT less than $5k for it..
[20:55:01] <zeeshan> damn dude
[20:55:04] <zeeshan> find me one
[20:55:09] <zeeshan> and bring it up to canada
[20:55:09] <CHNCguy> ya I can get that 750 for 2k
[20:55:11] <zeeshan> comission!
[20:55:11] <PetefromTn_> I told you they are everywhere...
[20:55:11] <zeeshan> :P
[20:55:21] <CHNCguy> free if I retro fit a machine for him
[20:55:26] <PetefromTn_> nobody wants a vmc that does not run...
[20:55:32] <zeeshan> CHNCguy: please sell me one?
[20:55:32] <zeeshan> :)
[20:55:42] <zeeshan> if i can get one for under 5k
[20:55:47] <zeeshan> shipped to my place
[20:55:50] <zeeshan> ill buy one!
[20:55:51] <CHNCguy> lol the control is dead, ya gotta retro it
[20:55:54] <zeeshan> and get rid of the mill.
[20:55:59] <zeeshan> thats fine.
[20:56:15] <zeeshan> i really want cat40 tooling
[20:56:18] <zeeshan> and not r8 bs.
[20:56:29] <zeeshan> ive been looking on kijiji
[20:56:31] <zeeshan> but nothing so far. :)
[20:56:33] <CHNCguy> ill make a phone call monday, but shipping gonna be expensive to canada right?
[20:56:36] <PetefromTn_> my control actually worked when I got it but I wound up gutting.. everything and selling the parts..
[20:56:54] <zeeshan> CHNCguy: yea.
[20:56:56] <zeeshan> thats the bummer.
[20:57:02] <zeeshan> im assuming at least 1500 in shipping
[20:57:10] <CHNCguy> at least.....
[20:57:18] <zeeshan> its a 6500lb machine
[20:57:26] <CHNCguy> not the 750
[20:57:26] <PetefromTn_> to Canada from Florida more like $3500
[20:57:32] <zeeshan> how much does the 750 weigh?
[20:57:38] <andypugh> BT30 seems OK to me. The drive dogs do the work.
[20:57:40] <CHNCguy> its bigger than the 500
[20:57:46] <andypugh> Cheaper than 40 taper too.
[20:57:51] <zeeshan> oh.
[20:57:53] <zeeshan> i can'
[20:57:57] <zeeshan> i can't fit that in my garage :P
[20:58:02] <zeeshan> i need something like the 500.
[20:58:11] <CHNCguy> well the 750 has more travel
[20:58:19] <CHNCguy> and it weighs 7300lbs
[20:58:20] <zeeshan> yea, but im limited by floor space
[20:58:34] <CHNCguy> i know how that feels LOL
[20:58:39] <zeeshan> hehe
[20:58:59] <zeeshan> i'll keep looking locally. =/
[20:59:00] <PetefromTn_> That Mori looks like a sweet machine but hard parts are STUPID expensive for them.
[20:59:01] <andypugh> Actually, my machine was 30 INT, then I fitted a pull-stud drawbar so it became BT30, then I got a bunch of SK30 tooling, so shortened one drive dog. So I am not sure what taper it really is now :-)
[20:59:11] <zeeshan> andypugh: what machine?
[20:59:20] <andypugh> Little toy Harrison.

[21:02:04] <zeeshan> i have a first manual mill like that
[21:02:17] -!- dnaleromj has quit []
[21:02:19] <zeeshan> but it has an r8 spindle
[21:02:30] <zeeshan> there is a nt30 and nt40 spindle avaiable
[21:02:32] <andypugh> R8 is just wrong. :-)
[21:02:35] <zeeshan> for $300
[21:02:41] <zeeshan> but i've never done a spindle change before.
[21:03:11] <zeeshan> if i can find a vmc for 5k, i can save myself from doing all the ball screw conversion, spindle conversion
[21:03:21] <zeeshan> and just focus on the control
[21:03:37] <zeeshan> does the knee have a ball screw?
[21:03:39] <PetefromTn_> zeeshan Believe me it is SO much easier to do the retrofit on a machine that is ALREAY cnc..
[21:03:54] <zeeshan> PetefromTn_: i believe you!
[21:04:14] <zeeshan> hopefully a good deal pops up by the time im finished converting the lathe
[21:04:21] <zeeshan> and ready to convert the mill
[21:04:32] <PetefromTn_> When I did my RF45 I had to machine ballscrews, design and build mounts, figure out all sorts of shit that was very time consuming.
[21:04:35] <CHNCguy> i agree PETE!
[21:04:46] <zeeshan> PetefromTn_: its not that bad though :P
[21:05:03] <PetefromTn_> It is just not worth it unless it is completely just for the experience of it...hobby style...
[21:05:14] <zeeshan> for me its hobby
[21:05:17] <zeeshan> but i'm also lazy.
[21:05:22] <zeeshan> so if i can avoid work, i will :)
[21:05:27] <PetefromTn_> Yeah it is actually.. It is a LOT more work than most would admit.
[21:05:41] <zeeshan> then again i put a v8 in my rx7
[21:05:44] <PetefromTn_> If it is just for a hobby then go ahead and retrofit your mill you have..
[21:05:45] <zeeshan> and built a twin turbo kit for it
[21:05:46] <jdh> but, it is so satisfying
[21:05:52] <zeeshan> so i have the patience and i like the satification
[21:05:57] <zeeshan> jdh stole my words
[21:05:57] <zeeshan> ;[

[21:11:35] <zeeshan> for you you'll do db9
[21:11:43] <zeeshan> to a bunch of straight wires going into the screw terminals right?
[21:12:16] <zeeshan> PetefromTn_: is he over?
[21:12:38] <PetefromTn_> yeah either that or use the little breakout board that came with it and just do a multi conductor wire of some sort. You said it was differential so not necessary for shielding.
[21:12:52] <PetefromTn_> No Connor is not here now.
[21:13:06] <zeeshan> yea you can do that
