[00:40:23] <andypugh> paul_liebenberg: (Slow conversation). Yes, I am actually rather happy with how that turned out. For about the same as I paid for the Chinese (maybe Indian) machine I got something made out of a lot more metal by folk who actually knew how to make machine tools.
[00:43:31] <andypugh> somenewguy: But: You don't run all the motors flat out all the time (Actually, with steppers you do, and then the power requirepmet drops with speed.....) But the real power requirement is probably motor current and PSU voltage, rather than any of the other 4 combinations.

[01:48:41] <s1dev> trying to figure out a method to mounting these without drilling into the bed of my lathe
[01:48:41] <s1dev> http://www.shars.com/products/view/2401/8quot_Horizontal_Digital_Machine_Scale
[01:50:11] <s1dev> any ideas?
[01:50:18] <andypugh> Just drill into the bed of your lathe
[01:51:01] <andypugh> It's metal, it doesn't care. Why do you care?
[01:51:08] <andypugh> (it's your lathe)
[01:52:24] <andypugh> But: Two things: 1) Remote reading is better. 2) why not just go CNC?
[01:52:33] <s1dev> 1) money 2) money
[01:53:29] <s1dev> this is probably just going to be a stopgap solution until I can get full length scales
[01:54:17] <s1dev> *full length real scales
[01:54:21] <andypugh> Encoders on the screws linked to LinuxCNC might be cheaper.
[01:54:44] <andypugh> (and remote, and mappable to screw error)
[01:55:01] <s1dev> it's a 50 year old rack/leadscrew
[01:55:16] <andypugh> So? Map it :-)
[01:55:26] <s1dev> hmm
[01:55:49] <andypugh> No, that won't work if you have rack and screw. Sorry.
[01:55:57] -!- lyzidiamond has quit [Quit: lyzidiamond]
[01:56:11] <s1dev> I've got a rack/pinion and then a leadscrew for powerfeed
[01:56:22] -!- terabyte- [terabyte-!~terabyte@c-76-18-21-170.hsd1.fl.comcast.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[01:56:30] <s1dev> got a link for encoders?
[01:56:56] <andypugh> No shaft-drive powerfeed?
[01:58:12] <andypugh> There are too many encoder options.
[01:59:09] <andypugh> The cheapest + maximum effort is maybe $5 USB webcam and OCR of the existing feed screw dials.
[01:59:48] <andypugh> And as you spend more money the required effort decreases
[02:04:39] <andypugh> Plan A up there isn't stupid. Given the right track design and a camera that measures both pattern and pixel offset and a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Bruijn_sequence then a webcam can be a marvllous absolute rotary encoder.
[02:05:31] <andypugh> I am pretty sure that this is what http://www.renishaw.com/en/resolute-absolute-optical-encoder-how-it-works--10934 uses

[02:10:13] <andypugh> Ah!
[02:10:42] <andypugh> I hope yours laks the stupid spring on the chuck key?

[02:12:21] <s1dev> something like that..., less stupid spring, more like ineffective theoretically self-ejecting chuck key
[02:12:24] <andypugh> s1dev: I am not sure that the scales you linked give you very much on the spectrum between full-manual and full-CNC.
[02:12:58] <s1dev> I'm just interested in knowing where I am lengthwise
[02:13:20] <andypugh> yeah, Z is more of an issue than X on a lathe.
[02:13:47] <s1dev> my crossfeed has a scale on the handle
[02:14:32] <s1dev> but yeah, if I were to CNC it, it would be problematic
[02:14:42] <andypugh> This (but cheaper) would be useful http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kubler-Draw-Wire-Encoder-TD5-2501-2421-1000-/120522023033?pt=BI_Control_Systems_PLCs&hash=item1c0fac2079
[02:16:09] <andypugh> Do you plan to go full-CNC in the future?
[02:16:09] <s1dev> it doesn't hurt to plan
[02:16:09] <s1dev> although not in the near future
[02:16:17] <s1dev> *immediate
[02:16:24] <andypugh> Which basically boils down to can you put a computer and monitor on the lathe
[02:16:32] <s1dev> yes I can
[02:16:49] <s1dev> which would be nice so I don't have to print out any cad drawings
[02:17:01] <s1dev> *nice anyway
[02:18:03] <andypugh> Then maybe a parport software encoder counter and encoders on the screws (accepting that in rack feed you don't know where you are) is a good, cheap, extensible, interim solutiion
[02:18:52] <andypugh> Given that in traditional lathe work you don't use the rack if you really care about Z length.
[02:19:44] <s1dev> why is that? (I'm still getting this lathe up and running)

[02:21:34] <andypugh> Mainly because you can't.
[02:22:18] <s1dev> I visited a machine shop today to get a part machined and this guy had a dial gauge for his Z
[02:22:19] <andypugh> Traditional lathes are astonshingly bad at putting shoulders in the right place.
[02:22:36] <somenewguy> andypugh, not quite, a 3 axis move below your max speed, or at a low speed will draw full current on all motors, although such moves are uncommon, you at least need 2 axis
[02:22:58] <somenewguy> the current drop off shouldn't happen till the end of your useable speed range I suspect, as it can be pretty rapid

[02:23:39] <andypugh> somenewguy: My current policy is to eschew steppers :-)
[02:24:21] <somenewguy> showoff
[02:25:22] <s1dev> how much would it cost to CNC my lathe, just X and Z
[02:25:26] <andypugh> s1dev: Sorry, I need to sleep now.
[02:25:32] <s1dev> preferrably using servos
[02:25:33] <s1dev> okay
[02:25:49] <s1dev> sleep is good, I can attest to why lack of is bad
[02:28:43] <andypugh> But steppers, at that size, keeping the existing screws, http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Axis-Stepper-Motor-CNC-Kit-570-oz-in-/161240848834?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item258ab419c2 or simialr (first hit, do your own shopping) looks close. Add the same again to convert to ballscrews. But in typical lathe-work you can get away with the original screws much more than with a mill,
[02:29:16] <s1dev> hmm, I just thought about maybe just hooking up a joystick or something for manual lathe work
[02:29:22] <s1dev> that would be neat
[02:30:08] <andypugh> Actually, I don't think it would work anywhere nearly as well as you imagine :-)
[02:30:45] <s1dev> sure, you don't really feel it, but a large video game joystick
[02:31:30] <s1dev> I guess I'll figure that out when I get to it
[02:31:41] <andypugh> I do a lot more lathe work than mill work, but i don't use G-code. I run pre-programmed facing/turning/boring/threading cycles
[02:31:52] <humble_sea_bass> w hat kills it is the need to constantly change the feed rate
[02:33:27] <PetefromTn_> Okay folks.. Been playing with this damn toolchanger here this evening!!
[02:34:13] <andypugh> s1dev: http://www.linuxcnc.org/index.php/english/forum/41-guis/26550-lathe-macros is how my setup looks, but there are other options that suit other worksreams. i nearly always do one-offs. Other options are better at assembling production options.
[02:35:19] <PetefromTn_> I managed to test the wiring to the toolchanger motor and it works great in both forward and reverse...
[02:35:39] <PetefromTn_> Trying to figure out the best way to wire it up permanently now.
[02:35:44] <s1dev> in your setup do you have an encoder on the spindle and do you use a VFD to control the rpm?
[02:37:58] <humble_sea_bass> that is really gangster andy
[02:38:14] <humble_sea_bass> like straigh up east LA
[02:40:41] <andypugh> s1dev: In my setup I have both. You need an encoder for threading. You can do constant surface feed with just a well-tuned VF
[02:40:43] <andypugh> D
[02:41:26] <andypugh> humble_sea_bass: Your cultural references mean nothing to me
[02:42:08] <humble_sea_bass> http://www.impawards.com/1987/posters/born_in_east_l_a_xlg.jpg
[02:42:11] <s1dev> my lathe is currently lacking a few gears and a compound, to replace those would cost me somewhere in the region of $400
[02:42:33] <s1dev> but if that's about the cost of a CNC conversion
[02:42:58] <s1dev> then it seems more advantageous to just do the conversion instead
[02:43:23] <andypugh> Indeed, if nothing else a conversion to electronic leadscrew makes sense.
[02:45:04] <andypugh> I really do need to log off. Night all

[03:18:12] <PetefromTn_> Well I did not remember but I already hooked up all of the outputs from the 7i77 to the solid state relay bank in the electronics enclosure....
[03:19:09] <PetefromTn_> So I think now I can test the toolchanger carousel with software control. Gonna get it buttoned up and while I am back there go ahead and hookup the prox switches since I know what they are now to power and then check their operation with a VM.
[03:19:59] <s1dev> so what do I need in the way of electronics for a cnc conversion?
[03:20:04] <s1dev> using steppers

[04:00:28] <PetefromTn_> Okay I think I just figured out what the last wire in the machine does YEAH!!!
[04:02:05] <PetefromTn_> I just gotta get the prox sensors sorted out now as far as whether they are PNP or NPN and I can hook up all of them to the 7i77. The relays are all hooked up for the toolchanger now and the motor for the toolchanger is hooked up too..
[04:02:41] <PetefromTn_> I should be able to get the prox sensors sorted out tomorrow afternoon and get them hooked up.
[04:03:08] <PetefromTn_> There is one pair of them that actually only has two wires in each sensor for the ram in and ram out function.
[04:03:38] <PetefromTn_> What actually gets back to the control is only one wire per sensor so I guess they are just some kinda simple switch.
[04:03:55] <PetefromTn_> The wires appear to be grounded inside the connector somehow.
[04:04:46] <PetefromTn_> I think they may have set them up to use the same grounds that the once per pocket prox sensor uses in the plug to avoid having to have two more wires going into the enclosure.

[11:11:59] <RyanS> How 'excited' should I get about designing a welded steel machine stand for a 300kg CNC mill. Is that much weight to generate significant vibration and inertia from the axes?
[11:14:03] <RyanS> I'm not so much thinking can The table take the weight , but harmonics or whatever
[11:14:14] <archivist> look at some of the youtube videos where the machine shakes, iirc that hoss crap is on a sping stand
[11:14:27] <archivist> spring
[11:15:08] <RyanS> tormach 770 the official stand is a rip-off including shipping in Australia
[11:16:01] <RyanS> I've seen one design that doesn't appear all that rigid but I would not know
[11:16:45] <archivist> add bracing if they wobble
[11:18:06] <RyanS> yeah , and also bracing to transfer the weight directly from the machines base to the floor?
[11:19:53] <archivist> that what legs are for
[11:20:54] <RyanS> Not if the actual stand is wider, it would probably 'dip'
[11:21:39] <archivist> webbing under the table to keep it flat
[11:22:45] <RyanS> This looks okay, but I don't like the machine bolt down points or how the feet are mounted http://www.cnczone.com/forums/tormach-personal-cnc-mill/171357-improved-770-stand-diy.html

[15:10:18] <CaptHindsight> I just can't watch most Ted Talks, it's like a corporate version of #reprap

[15:19:31] <PetefromTn_> That was quite an impressive display of technology if you ask me.
[15:19:53] <zeeshan|2> man theres gotta be an easier way to make a 4"x2" cutout in a 14 gauge steel enclsoure
[15:20:03] <humble_sea_bass> Pete, it is amazing to be sure, but I like my presentations dry and tedious
[15:20:08] <zeeshan|2> than using a plasma cutter, dremel tool, or jig saw
[15:20:12] <zeeshan|2> and prolly a cleaner method too!
[15:20:43] * archivist hands zeeshan|2 a book on explosive metal forming :)
[15:20:53] <zeeshan|2> no
[15:21:09] <CaptHindsight> 30 second video and a single column on Phys.org is usually good enough, then link to the white paper for more meat
[15:21:30] <CaptHindsight> anything more is just showmanship
[15:21:56] <PetefromTn_> Robotic controls and algorithyms are getting more and more advanced and what was seemingly impossible just a couple years ago is now becoming commonplace. And to think I am amazed by my three axis CNC mill LOL...
[15:22:03] <humble_sea_bass> he used the phrase "redefine physics"
[15:22:10] <CaptHindsight> if it's so ground breaking then why are you trying to sell it to me?
[15:22:11] <PetefromTn_> he was kidding..
[15:22:27] <PetefromTn_> who is trying to sell what to you?
[15:22:36] <CaptHindsight> am I in a coma?
[15:22:43] <PetefromTn_> probably..
[15:23:20] <CaptHindsight> does physics now mean cheese puffs?
[15:23:28] <PetefromTn_> besides even if the entire thing WAS a sales pitch how do you think technology marches on with freebies and pennies?
[15:24:05] <humble_sea_bass> i like to watch things on mute
[15:24:21] <humble_sea_bass> it is a bad habit
[15:25:19] <PetefromTn_> What pisses me off is every friggin' video I watch on youtube has to be preceeded by a damn commercial. I mean I understand they are needing the make money but good lord I used to think it sucked watching commercials three times during a half hour TV show...

[15:57:16] <CaptHindsight> don't conflate 3D printing with recrap
[15:57:17] <zeeshan|2> unfortunately 1 in every 1000 people is creativer

[15:57:30] <zeeshan|2> might even be 10,000

[15:57:40] <humble_sea_bass> thanks,TED!
[15:57:53] <zeeshan|2> you hand an amazing tool like a mituotoyo vernier caliper to an engineering student
[15:57:58] <zeeshan|2> and they use it as a screw driver
[15:57:59] <zeeshan|2> lol
[15:58:23] <emc2_new_user> CaptHindsight: I try mach3 and kcam4 on windows [17:57] <emc2_new_user> kcam and emc conf is different
[15:58:24] <zeeshan|2> what i'm trying to say is, you can have amazing tools, but theres a handful of people who can make use of them
[15:58:26] <CaptHindsight> really, I thought they made really good ice picks
[15:58:26] <s1dev> and then they realize that stupid they were in 5 years and finally use it as a vernier caliper
[15:58:29] <zeeshan|2> ie users in here :)
[15:58:33] <s1dev> this is true
[15:58:42] <humble_sea_bass> zeeshan|2: that lack of sense used to get you kicked off my group when i was in college

[15:59:08] <emc2_new_user> or connect teamvier
[15:59:11] <zeeshan|2> i saw a guy run a 3/4 end mill through a kurt vise

[15:59:28] <s1dev> 0.o
[15:59:30] <zeeshan|2> grad student too
[15:59:56] <zeeshan|2> it went through the clamping direction through both the jaws and the vise
[16:00:04] <CaptHindsight> emc2_new_user: use pastebin.ca or similar
[16:00:07] <zeeshan|2> how do you crash that badly
[16:00:42] <zeeshan|2> there's a bunch of people at my school trying to make control algorithms where you can "copy and paste" 3d parts
[16:00:57] <humble_sea_bass> the best thing I ever saw in school was an endmill planted in a bed like excalibur
[16:01:01] <s1dev> those already exists
[16:01:07] <zeeshan|2> s1dev: they be slow
[16:01:08] <emc2_new_user> kcam conf. file or emc conf. file?
[16:01:14] <emc2_new_user> CaptHindsight:
[16:01:23] <s1dev> I guess so
[16:01:31] <s1dev> it's what they use to copy the dies for coins
[16:01:33] <CaptHindsight> emc2_new_user: whichever you have questions about
[16:01:36] <zeeshan|2> s1dev: this is like taking 3 pictures and letting the software convert to 3d model and then it's easy from there
[16:01:42] <s1dev> or that
[16:02:21] <s1dev> I wrote some firmware modifications for 3d printers that allowed you to use a digitizer probe to generate a pointmap

[16:22:48] <CaptHindsight> emc2_new_user: now what problem are you having? You're not sure what your SCALE should be with your setup?
[16:23:16] <emc2_new_user> setup is wrong
[16:23:47] <CaptHindsight> how many step/rev stepper? what gearing? or pulley ratio?
[16:24:25] <CaptHindsight> emc2_new_user: what happens now with your current config? what is wrong?
[16:24:26] <emc2_new_user> my step motor 1.8 ,mil pitch 5
[16:25:31] <emc2_new_user> X axis move,but not true (go to 1 mm, machine go ~1,5mm),y and z axis not move
[16:25:44] <emc2_new_user> I will send mach3 and kcam conf file

[16:28:57] <emc2_new_user> I look my controller 1 min
[16:29:01] <humble_sea_bass> i mean what driver
[16:30:31] <CaptHindsight> [AXIS_0] SCALE = 2048.0 [AXIS_1] SCALE = 81920.0 why the difference if you ave the same screws and motors?
[16:30:53] KreAture_Zzz is now known as KreAture
[16:30:55] <CaptHindsight> [AXIS_2] SCALE = 20.0
[16:31:56] <CaptHindsight> I forget the formula again steps per rev vs pitch
[16:32:14] <CaptHindsight> and my system is in a box or in other rooms
[16:32:15] <emc2_new_user> 200*16=3200/5=640
[16:33:39] <emc2_new_user> 360 ┬░ / 1.8 ┬░ = 200 steps (1/1 microstep setting) 200/5 = 40 (5 for spindle pitch of 1 mm steps required to progress) setting steps p = 40 (5 pitch shaft and 1/1 microsteps setting) pr = 40 * 8 = 320 steps (5 pitch shaft and the eighth microsteps setting) steps pr = 40 * 16 = 640 (5 pitch mile and 1/16 microsteps setting)
[16:35:21] <emc2_new_user> Where these values ÔÇőÔÇőare written?
[16:35:46] <humble_sea_bass> emc2_new_user: what is your Driver Microstepping value
[16:36:17] <emc2_new_user> I don't know humble_sea_bass
[16:36:35] <CaptHindsight> SCALE is Steps / in or mm based on the units chosen
[16:37:43] <CaptHindsight> and I don't think you mean MILE (1 Mile = 1609.34m)
[16:38:53] <emc2_new_user> guess 1/16
[16:39:04] <emc2_new_user> mm
[16:39:09] <emc2_new_user> I use mm

[16:44:48] <humble_sea_bass> see item 2? this is often a problem

[16:45:56] <CaptHindsight> emc2_new_user: you need to see the settings
[16:46:27] <emc2_new_user> ok wait I 'll look
[16:46:30] <CaptHindsight> otherwise it's guess the screw pitch
[16:46:47] <emc2_new_user> humble_sea_bass: I try picture value?
[16:47:00] <emc2_new_user> screw pitch 5mm
[16:47:00] <humble_sea_bass> no don't use picture value
[16:47:05] <humble_sea_bass> you have to figure it out
[16:47:47] <CaptHindsight> true, I assumed the docs might actually be accurate
[16:47:54] <CaptHindsight> silly me
[16:48:16] <emc2_new_user> http://www.damencnc.com/images/products/fullsize/FSI.jpg
[16:48:33] <emc2_new_user> ok not try
[16:48:50] <CaptHindsight> so you measured the screw and it's 5m per turn and 1 start?
[16:49:10] <humble_sea_bass> You must determine the microstepping value based on your controller and tell LinuxCNC. You must also know the parameters of your screw pitch.
[16:49:13] <humble_sea_bass> Read the manual for your controller, it tells you how to determine the microstep value.
[16:49:24] <humble_sea_bass> Sen denetleyiciye ba─čl─▒ Mikrostep de─čerini belirlemek ve LinuxCNC s├Âylemek gerekir. Ayr─▒ca vida sahan─▒n parametrelerini bilmeniz gerekir.
[16:49:27] <humble_sea_bass> Denetleyicinizdeki i├žin k─▒lavuzunu okuyun, bu mikro de─čerini belirlemek i├žin nas─▒l s├Âyler.
[16:49:29] <CaptHindsight> then you can check the rotation by moving 200 steps and measure the angle
[16:50:04] <CaptHindsight> sounds like you're off by 50% on that one axis
[16:50:13] <CaptHindsight> not sure on Z
[16:51:57] <emc2_new_user> x 0 0 1 1
[16:52:04] <emc2_new_user> y 0 0 1 0
[16:53:48] <CaptHindsight> how are the switches numbered? the document says switch #4 is kept on or 1
[16:54:45] <CaptHindsight> so from your example switch# 1, 2, 3, 4 or 4, 3, 2, 1 ?
[16:55:16] <emc2_new_user> 1 2 3 4
[16:55:40] <CaptHindsight> so Y is wrong since #4 has to be a 1 or on
[16:56:07] <CaptHindsight> and 123 being 001 you are set at 16 microsteps
[16:56:14] <emc2_new_user> yes
[16:56:33] <emc2_new_user> axis 1 2 3
[16:56:37] <emc2_new_user> x 0 0 1
[16:56:43] <emc2_new_user> y 0 0 1
[16:56:54] <CaptHindsight> so 16 x 200 steps = 3200
[16:57:05] <emc2_new_user> the same
[16:57:45] <CaptHindsight> what are your units in the config? mm or inch?

[18:49:45] <archivist> Zaaarin, you are asking how not to do things, we would not make 4 inch holes with such a tiny drill press

[18:53:27] <ben5446> IchGuckLive: yes im in G17 coords
[18:53:54] <Zaaarin> I get this: Flycutter + Drill Chuck + Drill Press = Accident Waiting to Happen!
[18:53:58] <IchGuckLive> ben5446: i dont need the code as i dont know exaxt what you want to see as a result
[18:54:36] <archivist> Zaaarin, sometimes one needs to use a number of drills to get a hole of a certain size
[18:55:29] <archivist> Zaaarin, too much power needed you only have half horse
[18:56:48] <IchGuckLive> ben5446: i assume you got a part on the X axis thar rotates around A but what is the probe doing for Generating Gcosde you only need the Z for probing
[18:57:22] <IchGuckLive> ben5446: moving along X and rotating the A
[18:57:28] <archivist> he needs as many axes as he needs not just Z
[18:57:59] <IchGuckLive> archivist: in the LOG yes but not n the Probing move
[18:58:20] <archivist> if probing the face or angle he needs what he needs
[18:58:35] <ben5446> thats correct
[18:59:28] <archivist> ben5446, I also have 5 axis, but currently done probe
[18:59:34] <archivist> dont
[18:59:50] -!- lyzidiamond has quit [Client Quit]
[19:00:00] <ben5446> i managed to probe at an angle using only Y and Z, but when I throw X in there I get the unknown operation error. But I don't understand why it will probe in the proper direction then give me the error upon contact.
[19:00:48] <IchGuckLive> ben5446: are you on 2.6.pre
[19:00:51] <Zaaarin> I think this is the best tool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTodUEUMCpk
[19:00:52] <archivist> well g38 is named Straight Probe
[19:01:11] <ben5446> technically I'm probing in a straight line
[19:01:20] <archivist> I realise that
[19:01:23] <IchGuckLive> this is ok
[19:01:37] <archivist> I think it could be a bug
[19:02:02] <archivist> or g38 needs extending

[19:02:21] <Zaaarin> start a thread on the forum?

[19:10:17] <IchGuckLive> ben5446: her is the probe vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZGP7zNWq-I
[19:12:10] <ben5446> that code probes downward. Imagine probing the part from the side, but the part is tilted. my program takes the Y movement and calculates the actual movements in Y and Z to compensate for the angle
[19:14:09] <IchGuckLive> the error accures on probe contact
[19:14:14] -!- jonasthomas has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[19:14:44] <ben5446> my program also calculates the offset caused by the probe tip
[19:15:08] <IchGuckLive> all ok i assume its your ini Geometry seting
[19:15:17] <IchGuckLive> did you go for A XYZ
[19:15:42] <archivist> this is 5 axis not 4
[19:15:44] <IchGuckLive> if only one Rotat it needs to be that way
[19:16:02] <ben5446> actually the B axis doesn't come into play since I leave it at 0 degrees
[19:16:29] <ben5446> my kinematics compensates for the A angle so I have to reverse compensate in my program
[19:16:31] <IchGuckLive> BAXYZ != ABXYZ
[19:17:15] <IchGuckLive> the probe subroutine is fixed on Gememetry settings this is your error
[19:17:36] <archivist> I wonder if you let the kins think you may need less axes in the g38 command
[19:18:24] <ben5446> it shouldn't matter since i rotate the part first, so the probing command only needs X,Y and Z
[19:18:59] <archivist> rotate enough to remove x or y
[19:19:26] <ben5446> the kinematics should treat the A axis rotation the same whether or not I use the X in the probing command.
[19:20:05] <ben5446> the X axis requires no compensation because the B axis is not rotated
[19:22:14] <ben5446> im basically trying to probe the inside of a cylinder rotated about A. If i probe to the 6 ro 12 oclock position it works great. if I try to probe at 11 oclock it gives the error
[19:23:45] <Zaaarin> Any chance I can cut big holes with my dremel trio?
