[00:00:02] <zeeshan> i don't think you'd ever need to go back to "manual milling/turning" again
[00:00:03] <zeeshan> :)
[00:00:25] <zeeshan> for that odd time where you're just trying to face something, i think mpg will work fine.
[00:00:26] <andypugh> I haven't written my mill macros yet, but I will have simple feeds, probes and hole drilling patterns on a separate tab.
[00:00:58] <zeeshan> andypugh: are you donng this through "GLADEVCP"
[00:01:04] <zeeshan> *doing
[00:01:11] <andypugh> Yes, that lathe GUI is Glade.
[00:01:16] <zeeshan> ah nice.
[00:01:31] <zeeshan> looks nice.
[00:01:47] <zeeshan> i like the screenshot of an inventor drawn part :)
[00:01:50] <andypugh> It's only a static image. It doesn't update or anything.
[00:02:05] <GuShH_> zeeshan: I don't know, I'd like to go back because I might be a masochist.
[00:02:06] <andypugh> And you are right, it's Inventor
[00:02:16] <GuShH_> At the moment any conversion won't happen any time soon anyway.
[00:02:33] <zeeshan> use servos
[00:02:40] <GuShH_> sounds costly
[00:02:43] <zeeshan> and dual shafts ;p
[00:02:57] <GuShH_> a servo motor on the lathe would be nice
[00:02:58] <zeeshan> i really dont like the resistance of the steppers
[00:03:08] <zeeshan> (when they're disabled)
[00:03:18] <zeeshan> it feels like you're drilling a 1/2" hole in mild steel plate
[00:03:22] <zeeshan> with no pilot hole
[00:03:24] <GuShH_> a lot of magnets just got insulted by your comment.

[00:07:13] <GuShH_> zeeshan: or just the spindle set too low and no cutting oil, should feel similar
[00:07:16] <GuShH_> low/slow
[00:07:26] <GuShH_> grab, grab, grab

[00:35:30] <RyanS> hmm ive seen 4 in action on videos, I'm trying to decide whether to get the hang of 3axis first or dive right in. I don't know how 'neiche' 4 is
[00:36:29] <RyanS> Can you profile gears on 3 axis?
[00:37:43] -!- patrickarlt has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:38:31] <RyanS> I think I've seen a bevel gear done on 3d (as opposed to 2.5d)
[00:50:16] <Tom_itx> possible but probably not practical

[01:11:39] <PetefromTn_> aw jeez it's that time again. When I gotta do the cam work on another part and hope I don't screw it up. :p

[01:13:21] <Tom_itx> you should get some machineable wax
[01:13:46] <Tom_itx> you _can_ make it
[01:14:05] <PetefromTn_> yeah I just prefer to WING it LOL
[01:14:15] <Tom_itx> or wood blocks
[01:14:30] <PetefromTn_> I have machined wood before to test tho that actually works okay.
[01:14:43] <CaptHindsight> is there an unmachinable wax?
[01:14:46] <Tom_itx> the wax is reuseable though
[01:14:49] <PetefromTn_> just a bitch to clean up the mess..
[01:14:49] <Tom_itx> CaptHindsight yes
[01:14:56] <CaptHindsight> melted
[01:15:00] <Tom_itx> it's got ground up plastic in it
[01:16:01] <CaptHindsight> wax with glass shards
[01:16:13] <PetefromTn_> I remember awhile back when I first started CNC machining parts on my RF45 I used to save all the wax from the carbide saw blades and router bits we ordered or had sharpened and saved it in a wood box I made to act as a mold so when I had enough I would just melt it down into a big block.
[01:16:44] <PetefromTn_> Well when I FINALLY had a big bunch of it I melted it down with a heat gun in the wood box.
[01:17:12] <PetefromTn_> It turns out the wax they use is NOT the best thing for making machining wax from LOL... it was soft and shitty...
[01:17:23] <CaptHindsight> wax with metal beads would also be a tough one
[01:17:28] <PetefromTn_> took me months to sace all that up...LOL
[01:17:35] <PetefromTn_> sae
[01:17:40] <PetefromTn_> save hehe
[01:18:36] <PetefromTn_> I machined a bunch of sacrificial jaws today for the projects I am working on.
[01:18:50] <PetefromTn_> Machine ran perfect and the modbus spindle control is sweet.

[01:19:44] <PetefromTn_> I need to finish this cam work but I got a pocket that needs some tighter corners and it is an inch thick so I am having to use some smaller cutters at depth.
[01:20:13] <PetefromTn_> Gonna take two finish pass depths I don't usually like to do that....
[01:20:18] <Tom_itx> http://www.instructables.com/id/Machinable-Wax/
[01:21:12] <Tom_itx> just clean up the corners with the small cutters

[01:22:00] <CaptHindsight> polythene pam and wax
[01:22:04] <PetefromTn_> yeah that is what I am gonna be doing.
[01:22:18] <PetefromTn_> BRB..
[01:23:27] <Tom_itx> inch isn't bad
[01:23:44] <Tom_itx> we had some 8" cutters on a blower head once on a big hogout
[01:24:08] <Tom_itx> cut the inside first then filled it with ballast and cut the outside
[01:24:12] <Tom_itx> one noisy job
[01:24:52] <Tom_itx> used pennies for ballast. essentially free
[01:25:50] <Tom_itx> the bank may not have appreciated all the cutting fluid on em when sorting though
[01:26:03] <Tom_itx> we did rinse em off a bit...

[01:33:57] <Connor> Wax is great for checking tool paths and stuff.. but does nothing for feed / speed ...
[01:34:31] <Tom_itx> agreed. it will prove a cam tool path though
[01:34:45] <humble_s1a_bass> it is fun to fiddle
[01:35:00] <Connor> My issues tend to be related to feed speed and rpm...
[01:35:17] <CaptHindsight> http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/gecko-drivers/geckodrive-g251-50v3-5a-stepper-motor-driver 10 microstep fixed resolution?
[01:35:27] <Tom_itx> there are plenty of charts out there for that
[01:35:40] <Tom_itx> CaptHindsight, yes
[01:35:44] <Tom_itx> my 203v are
[01:36:01] <Tom_itx> but they have smoothing etc builtin
[01:36:06] <Connor> Doesn't it revert to full steps automatically ?
[01:36:07] <CaptHindsight> what's so great about the Geckodrives?
[01:36:13] <Tom_itx> they just work
[01:36:33] <humble_s1a_bass> ^^
[01:36:42] <Tom_itx> i don't know about others but they make the steppers work great
[01:36:46] <Connor> I like Keling.. They work good too.
[01:37:00] <humble_s1a_bass> Keling makes a driver?
[01:37:19] <Tom_itx> i think they have a DSP in them to help smooth the power range
[01:37:34] <Connor> http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/kl-stepper-drivers
[01:37:36] <CaptHindsight> the Keilings are relabeled Leadshine
[01:37:41] <Connor> Those.
[01:37:41] <Jymmm> That's really cool… http://www.viralnova.com/mirror-fence/
[01:37:46] <Tom_itx> those are also good
[01:37:47] <Tom_itx> i hear
[01:37:52] <Connor> Very good.
[01:38:16] <Connor> http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/digital-stepper-motor-driver
[01:38:21] <Tom_itx> the 203v have pretty good protection
[01:38:27] <Connor> also... they have anew one out.. that's a 3-axis DSP
[01:38:41] <Tom_itx> dunno about the 251
[01:39:23] <PetefromTn_> I like my Teco 1kw motors and drives :D
[01:39:29] <humble_s1a_bass> I think the gecko g540 is just 3 of those little guys
[01:39:35] <Connor> PetefromTn_: Oh hush. :)
[01:39:36] <CaptHindsight> I'm not sure what I'm getting for 2-3x the price of others
[01:40:02] <GuShH_> Hrmm are the "Leadshine M542" drivers worth a look?
[01:40:11] <PetefromTn_> I had the gecko servo drives they were okay.. nothing to write home about... Kind of a bitch to tune...
[01:40:12] <GuShH_> 2m542
[01:40:19] <Connor> Exactly.. and if you looking at the g540, look at the MX3660
[01:40:29] <GuShH_> Not sure that's the actual brand, could be all generic china.
[01:40:43] <Tom_itx> CaptHindsight, they were highly recomended to me when i was looking
[01:40:44] <Connor> http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/digital-stepper-motor-driver/3-axis-dsp-based-digital-stepper-drive-max-60-vdc-6-0a
[01:41:00] <PetefromTn_> I almost bought those DMM servo system motors for both my RF45 and the Cincinatti Arrow...
[01:41:49] <PetefromTn_> They come in a nice kit with everything you need to setup. I wish they had been available when I did my RF45 I would have saved some money and probably a lot of frustration with them.

[02:14:47] <PetefromTn_> We need to maybe just get the other pin installed.
[02:14:55] <PetefromTn_> into the driver maybe.
[02:15:10] <Connor> looking for some 1/2" ID PVC tubing that's easy to bend.. to water proof my wires..
[02:15:14] <PetefromTn_> your machine is almost running?
[02:15:16] <Connor> I really don't think that's needed.
[02:15:47] <Connor> Close. Got the wire conduit installed.. just need to waterproof the wires and re-install the spindle motor.
[02:15:55] <PetefromTn_> I ran all my lines in surgical tubing on the RF45 worked great.
[02:16:05] <Connor> yea. Same idea.
[02:16:28] <PetefromTn_> put everything thru hose barbs I deburred internallly.
[02:16:47] <Connor> I hope I can do it without having to desolder the connectors..
[02:16:58] <PetefromTn_> Doh!
[02:17:25] <jdh_> that would suck.
[02:18:15] <PetefromTn_> Sweet Marie I'm Alive!!!
[02:18:29] <Connor> Huh ?
[02:18:59] <PetefromTn_> just singin' here man...enjoyin' the song..
[02:19:02] <Connor> the connectors come apart.. so I'm hoping the black part can be threaded through the pvc without issue.
[02:19:39] <Connor> I need to go measure it.. brb

[02:25:09] <Connor> Although, it's PVC jacketed wire... I'm not to sure I need to worry with it..
[02:25:23] <PetefromTn_> Don't feel bad I did the same thing :P

[03:09:40] <Connor_iPad> My printer wasn't up to the task.
[03:10:52] <PetefromTn_> Hey it as "ZERO BALL SCREWS" so how does the thing move then??? HMMMM..
[03:11:13] <sabotender> PetefromTn_: your guess is as good as mine
[03:12:10] <sabotender> but is it a good mill?
[03:12:19] <Connor_iPad> Probably zero backlash ball screws.
[03:12:25] <Connor_iPad> I wouldn't get it.
[03:12:30] <sabotender> its prolly overkill for what I want
[03:12:48] <Connor_iPad> Not for that much $$$$
[03:12:59] <sabotender> agreed :-(
[03:13:33] <Connor_iPad> Would be better or converting a G0704 or maybe even a X2 if the 704 is too large.
[03:13:42] <sabotender> i really just want something accurate enough to etch PCBs and maybe cutting aluminium
[03:14:45] <Connor_iPad> Go with laser printer and a etch tank. Milling pcbs isn't all it's cracked up to,be.
[03:14:55] <sabotender> boo!
[03:15:13] <sabotender> boo, I say!
[03:15:24] <sabotender> I still need one for prototyping

[03:17:32] <sabotender> what is that item?
[03:18:19] <PetefromTn_> sure.
[03:18:34] <GuShh_Lap2> http://mla-s1-p.mlstatic.com/espectacular-torno--4115-MLA145750867_7556-F.jpg
[03:18:41] <GuShh_Lap2> the chuck is 4.5 meters
[03:18:55] <sabotender> Connor_iPad: maybe out of my price range?
[03:18:59] <GuShh_Lap2> it uses a rail system
[03:19:01] <PetefromTn_> yeah I have seen some monster lathes..
[03:19:03] <GuShh_Lap2> so it can be any length!
[03:19:15] <sabotender> maybe I should just get a cheap chinese tabletop mill :-P
[03:19:18] <GuShh_Lap2> let's all buy one!
[03:19:25] <GuShh_Lap2> sabotender: no no no. avoid.
[03:19:44] <PetefromTn_> I used to have a 16x80 in my shop here but I sold it because I never really used it...took up too much damn room.
[03:20:40] <sabotender> GuShh_Lap2: eh? whys that?
[03:20:43] <PetefromTn_> Find a nice boxford CNC mill with a blown control and toolchanger.... the big one. Sweet little machine.
[03:20:49] <GuShh_Lap2> sabotender: look for used iron instead
[03:20:57] <GuShh_Lap2> because china mills are mostly crap.
[03:21:30] <sabotender> im curious; what makes em crappt?
[03:21:39] <GuShh_Lap2> where do I begin...
[03:21:48] <GuShh_Lap2> no I won't engage on that.
[03:22:02] <CaptHindsight> no real QC on the machines
[03:22:06] <GuShh_Lap2> do you have room for a real mill?
[03:22:23] <CaptHindsight> bad castings, poor machining and assembly
[03:22:32] <GuShh_Lap2> they are projects.
[03:22:43] <CaptHindsight> you might get lucky and get a good one
[03:22:46] <GuShh_Lap2> in my case, expensive ones. old iron is cheaper, better.
[03:23:15] <GuShh_Lap2> CaptHindsight: I got a china lathe, there's still sand from the casting process in it.

[03:24:11] * sabotender frowns
[03:24:16] <GuShh_Lap2> even if it were perfect, they flex just like a cheap drill press would.
[03:24:47] <GuShh_Lap2> SPECIALLY the round column "mill drills"
[03:24:54] <sabotender> GuShh_Lap2: I have room for a tabletop mill, or even one that stands alone
[03:25:04] <GuShh_Lap2> get an old knee mill sir.
[03:25:06] <CaptHindsight> many machine tools are made in China, with QC and then the final assembly in the USA or the EU
[03:25:18] <GuShh_Lap2> we're talking generic china...
[03:25:23] <GuShh_Lap2> china can make good things when you pay for them.
[03:25:23] <Connor_iPad> G0704 isn't that bad.
[03:25:49] <sabotender> Connor_iPad: looks expensive :-P
[03:25:59] <Connor_iPad> Sherlone to Teig might be more your style.
[03:26:12] <Connor_iPad> What's your budget?
[03:26:17] <GuShh_Lap2> I think you managed to butcher both names!
[03:26:29] <Connor_iPad> Stupid ipad.

[03:26:49] <GuShh_Lap2> sherline and taig :p
[03:26:50] <CaptHindsight> I thought those were the Chinese clones
[03:27:26] <Connor_iPad> Your going to have a hard time finding ANYTHING for that.
[03:27:44] <GuShh_Lap2> that's more or less how much the knee mill I'm looking at costs
[03:27:45] <Connor_iPad> CNC wise
[03:27:50] <sabotender> Connor_iPad: I was looking at the fireball
[03:27:59] <sabotender> it was in my price range I think
[03:28:13] <GuShh_Lap2> Connor_iPad: huh? that G0704 surely is a manual lathe, not a CNC?
[03:28:17] <GuShh_Lap2> err mill
[03:28:28] <Connor_iPad> Yup. But you can convert it.
[03:28:32] <GuShh_Lap2> I was looking at the grizzly page and found their lathes, they are all generic china with their badge
[03:28:37] <GuShh_Lap2> you can convert a toaster if you wanted to

[03:30:19] <Connor_iPad> Not really up to much metal work. Wood and engraving.
[03:30:19] <GuShh_Lap2> but yes a good knee mill would cost the same or less than a new china mill here.
[03:30:44] <CaptHindsight> GuShh_Lap2: where is your here?

[11:46:51] <_methods> make the work offset a couple thou deeper
[11:46:55] <_methods> i could use a tool offset
[11:47:09] <_methods> but i just don't see anywhere to adjust my work offset position
[11:47:20] <jthornton> the touch off box
[11:47:24] <_methods> are you guys using g10 to do work shift adjustments?
[11:48:21] <_methods> there's no table where i can go and make adjustments to work offsets?
[11:48:24] <jthornton> can't recall that I ever made a work shift adjustment
[11:48:29] <jthornton> no
[11:48:30] <_methods> really?
[11:48:37] <_methods> have you ever run a real cnc?
[11:48:42] <_methods> like in fanuc
[11:48:48] <jthornton> have you seen my shop?

[11:49:33] <_methods> at a regular control
[11:49:49] <_methods> i just assumed there would be a work offset page
[11:49:55] <jthornton> so your talking about a tool wear offset?
[11:49:56] <_methods> looks like you have to go modify var file
[11:49:58] <_methods> then reset
[11:50:01] <_methods> no not tool wear
[11:50:04] <_methods> work offse
[11:50:06] <_methods> g54

[11:50:10] <_methods> g56
[11:50:14] <_methods> .....
[11:50:25] <jthornton> use G10
[11:50:36] <_methods> ok so that's the "normal" way to do it
[11:50:43] <_methods> in linuxcnc lol
[11:50:50] <_methods> just checking
[11:51:12] <jthornton> G10 L2 or G10 L20
[11:51:16] <_methods> yeah
[11:51:54] <_methods> interesting
[11:51:58] <_methods> there's a tool table
[11:52:04] <_methods> why not a work offset table?
[11:52:16] <jthornton> I use G10 L20 with a button to touch off my work in my Hardinge CHNC
[11:52:32] <_methods> yeah i use g10 at the beginning of my programs
[11:52:47] <_methods> that way the operators don't have to load any offsets
[11:52:52] <_methods> they just double check
[11:52:57] <_methods> put the vises where they need to go

[11:59:15] <_methods> i have no idea about editing it in memory
[11:59:22] <Tom_itx> so it gets re'read
[11:59:26] <_methods> with G10
[11:59:28] <_methods> i guess
[11:59:37] <_methods> but other than that or g92 i don't know how

[12:00:41] <Tom_itx> starting with 5223
[12:00:42] <_methods> i've seen posts where people ar asking the same question i am
[12:00:44] <Tom_itx> for Z
[12:00:58] <_methods> but no one seems to ever address it
[12:01:08] <Tom_itx> ask in devel
[12:01:12] <Tom_itx> maybe they know
[12:01:15] <_methods> k
[12:01:20] <Tom_itx> (they should)
[12:01:32] <_methods> honestly i'm not that worried about it
[12:01:36] <_methods> i'll just use g10
[12:01:40] <_methods> that works for me
[12:01:57] <_methods> i'm not picky lol
[12:01:58] <Tom_itx> you should be able to change a fixture offset value without having to restart lcnc
[12:02:01] <Tom_itx> for sure....
[12:02:03] <_methods> i just thought maybe i was missing something lol
[12:02:58] -!- Komzpa has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[12:03:03] <_methods> and 9 work offsets is no big deal for me and my little tiny mill
[12:03:05] <PetefromTn_> you are wanting to be able to go to a table and manually change the offset for say G55 etc then?
[12:03:09] <_methods> yeah
[12:03:18] <_methods> like a regular fanuc controller
[12:03:22] <PetefromTn_> I have wondered if this is possible as well..
[12:03:24] <Tom_itx> it would be poor design if you couldn't edit it on the fly
[12:03:41] <Tom_itx> i sure know you can on 'real' controls
[12:03:45] <PetefromTn_> I can see where it would be nice to do air cuts say and then change the offset with an inch change
[12:03:51] <_methods> yeah
[12:03:57] <_methods> you put that in g53
[12:03:57] <Tom_itx> PetefromTn_ i do that
[12:04:00] <Tom_itx> currently
[12:04:01] <_methods> add a z10
[12:04:03] <_methods> or whatever
[12:04:12] <_methods> it will raise your table 10 global
[12:04:24] <PetefromTn_> what does that mean?
[12:04:30] <Tom_itx> i just set the regular work offset for that
[12:04:32] <_methods> it's a global work shift
[12:04:35] <Tom_itx> like G54 etc
[12:04:40] <_methods> you can do that
[12:04:50] <_methods> but what if i'm i want to raise 5 fixtures
[12:04:52] <_methods> at one time
[12:04:56] <_methods> i put it in g53
[12:05:03] <Tom_itx> change 5 numbers at one time :)
[12:05:13] <_methods> why change 5 when i can change 1
[12:05:19] <Tom_itx> can you though?
[12:05:25] <_methods> yeah i do it all the time
[12:05:27] <PetefromTn_> it would seem that a table with all the available offsets listed and modifiable would be advantageous.
[12:05:41] <Tom_itx> then what is the real question?
[12:05:42] <_methods> uh yeah that's kinda why i thought there would be one lol
[12:05:53] <_methods> i was just asking if there was a table lol
[12:05:56] <Tom_itx> PetefromTn_ there is
[12:06:07] <PetefromTn_> where?
[12:06:07] <_methods> taht i could change in real time
[12:06:54] <Tom_itx> stored in a file in your ini directory
[12:07:03] <Tom_itx> same as your tool table is
[12:07:22] <PetefromTn_> but there is no offset editor like the tool table editor right?
[12:07:29] <_methods> yes but you have to restart linuxcnc to initialize it
[12:07:35] <Tom_itx> _methods i agree there should be a method to reload it
[12:07:46] <_methods> like i said it's no biggie
[12:07:55] <_methods> i was just trying to see if there was one
[12:07:56] <Tom_itx> you can certainly edit the memory on a regular control with no problems
[12:07:58] <_methods> i had no idea
[12:08:24] <_methods> like there is a tool table
[12:08:31] <_methods> i thought there would be a work offset table
[12:08:37] <_methods> and i was just an idiot and overlooking it
[12:08:50] <_methods> which happens quite commonly as my wife will tellyou
[12:08:54] <Tom_itx> there is but i don't know if it's reloadable
[12:09:19] <_methods> k
[12:09:23] <_methods> well g10 works for me
[12:09:25] <_methods> it's easy enough
[12:09:29] <Tom_itx> i know the G54..59 are
[12:09:30] <PetefromTn_> I would not consider the .ini file a table that is commonly editable..
[12:09:47] <Tom_itx> i didn't say it was
[12:09:54] <Tom_itx> i said the table is in the same directory
[12:10:52] <PetefromTn_> what would be nice is another tap atop the viewscreen that has offsets inside it and is user editable.

[12:12:14] <PetefromTn_> honestly I am quite enjoying linuxCNC but one thing I miss is the ability to easily zero an axis without affecting the G54 offset to do things like adjust for edge finders or circle center finding etc.
[12:13:13] <Tom_itx> do math on it
[12:13:17] <_methods> hehe
[12:13:18] <_methods> yeah
[12:13:18] <Tom_itx> i have buttons for that
[12:13:34] <_methods> hehe how hard is it to subtract or add .1
[12:13:35] <_methods> lol
[12:13:48] <PetefromTn_> yeah there is enough math to be done little things like that make life easier and setups quicker.
[12:13:58] <_methods> i know i'm just messin with ya
[12:14:24] <PetefromTn_> besides my damn edge finder is 10mm and I have to setup in inch so it is not just a .1...
[12:14:25] <Tom_itx> PetefromTn_ set up some pyvcp buttons for it
[12:14:36] <_methods> i feel bad when i use these new machines with that touch off pad on them
[12:14:48] <_methods> i don't even have to zero my tools
[12:14:57] <_methods> or load a tool length
[12:15:00] <PetefromTn_> I'm working on that for my VMC right now..
[12:15:12] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/screenshot.png
[12:15:19] <Tom_itx> that's what those buttons bottom right are for
[12:15:43] <Tom_itx> if you touch off the same location each time
[12:15:53] <Tom_itx> if you use the other end of the vise for example, it will be off
[12:16:27] <PetefromTn_> what exactly does the zero axis button do in this instance?
[12:16:38] <PetefromTn_> besides the obvious I mean...
[12:16:42] <Tom_itx> sets the G54 fixture offset
[12:16:50] <Tom_itx> it runs a subroutine
[12:17:03] <Tom_itx> the sub can do anything you want... even sink
[12:17:04] <PetefromTn_> okay so that is no different than clicking touch off and selecting G54.
[12:17:23] <Tom_itx> no but i can add in the wiggler distance there
[12:17:58] <PetefromTn_> Perhaps what I am looking for is an independent DRO that can be set at zero at any point but has no bearing on machine movement.
[12:18:20] <Tom_itx> have you looked at the DRO screen?
[12:18:27] <Tom_itx> maybe you can... i don't use it much
[12:18:49] <PetefromTn_> that way you could measure distances or offset tools like the edge finder or center a circle without having to touch off an actual work coordinate.

[12:22:46] <PetefromTn_> Loetmichel Yeah I know some people use the cameras for stuff I think that is probably more of a hobby thing.
[12:22:47] <Loetmichel> VERY useful if ot near the machine ;-)=
[12:22:55] <Loetmichel> not
[12:23:05] <Loetmichel> not for measuring.

[12:23:19] <Loetmichel> for looking for broken mill bits from the diostanve
[12:23:36] <Loetmichel> distance
[12:23:51] <PetefromTn_> when my machine is running there is so much coolant going everywhere it is difficult to see the part let alone film it.
[12:23:53] <Loetmichel> because my office is not as loud as the workshop ;-)
[12:24:07] <Tom_itx> maybe not as dangerous either
[12:25:13] <Loetmichel> and i can do other work while the machine is running
[12:25:42] <PetefromTn_> I always figured at some point I would be able to walk away from the machine while it is running..
[12:26:02] <PetefromTn_> but honestly most of the parts I do the run time is maybe twenty minutes at best or less..
[12:26:11] <Tom_itx> that _is_ a benefit of cnc
[12:27:05] <PetefromTn_> once the toolchanger is working and I have a product that is running under a proven code I am sure I could walk away but it would only be for the cycle so it is not really a big deal since they are pretty short really.
[12:27:15] <Loetmichel> PetefromTn_: my last par did run about 4 hrs
[12:27:18] <Tom_itx> besides PetefromTn_... admit it.. you like standing there watching it run!
[12:27:42] <PetefromTn_> well yeah when it is running correctly it is a thing of beauty ;)
[12:28:23] <Loetmichel> thats the part i made yesterday
[12:28:27] <Tom_itx> aluminum parts cycle times are usually reasonablly low
[12:28:28] <PetefromTn_> yesterday I was just making some simple sacrificial vise jaws and just drilling and milling some counterbored holes but it was still fun to watch it do its thing..
[12:28:32] <Tom_itx> start cutting TI or steel
[12:28:38] <Tom_itx> etc
[12:28:44] -!- JT-Shop [JT-Shop!~john@] has joined #linuxcnc
[12:28:47] <Loetmichel> milling down that much 8mm aluminium sheet with a 3mm mill buit takes its time ;-)
[12:28:57] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14766&g2_imageViewsIndex=1
[12:29:30] <PetefromTn_> well honeslty even in that pro shop I worked in before they only cut steels and tool steels no aluminum and multiple parts on fixtures at a time and the cycle times were still reasonably quick,,
[12:29:33] -!- Komzzpa has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[12:30:35] <PetefromTn_> they musta had 25 Haas VMC's in one room and next door they had a couple Haas turning centers.
[12:31:01] <Loetmichel> i make prototypes on that machine
[12:31:03] <Loetmichel> "machine"
[12:31:20] <Loetmichel> so may be 3 or 4 identical parts, not mor
[12:31:21] <Loetmichel> e
[12:31:45] <Loetmichel> the series we give out
[12:32:28] <PetefromTn_> we made some tool steel parts that ran like nine at a time on these long tall steel fixtures and it was not unusual to be watching two or three machines at once and just loading parts and removing parts as needed when one ended kinda juggling them.
[12:33:46] <PetefromTn_> That kinda work is what I am HOPING to get in here so I can just run the machine and make money with it instead of all the one off and very short run work I am currently doing. it is just too time consuming and not enough cash in it.
[12:34:18] <_methods> yeah most small shop guys charge too little
[12:34:21] <_methods> to pay the bills
[12:34:28] <_methods> or whatever
[12:34:41] <_methods> i send customers askin for those prices packing
[12:34:57] <_methods> tooling is expensive
[12:35:54] <PetefromTn_> when you are a small shop with little exposure it is hard to turn away any work but I agree some of them ya just gotta send packin'.. I have done it several times now. I am also choosy about who I take work for because I cannot afford to be burnt on a job right now.
[12:36:51] <Tom_itx> PetefromTn_, my bud stared out the same way.. doing crap work for companies that didn't wanna pay
[12:36:52] <PetefromTn_> having said that just one good decent paying product that I can make here for a customer repeatedly would really change things for me in the shop.
[12:37:19] <PetefromTn_> ya gotta start somewhere.
[12:37:38] <Tom_itx> got his foot in the aircraft door doing experimental parts
[12:37:52] <PetefromTn_> I think at this point now tho I am FINALLY in a position where the machine works well and I have adequate tooling and the software I need to do whatever comes in the door for the most part.
[12:37:58] <Tom_itx> then jpats then production started increasing
[12:38:10] <PetefromTn_> jpats?
[12:38:15] <Tom_itx> military trainer
[12:38:43] <Tom_itx> was bid on by several aircraft companies here
[12:38:51] <PetefromTn_> yeah ya see it is work like that I would lOVE to get my hands on. something interesting that pays reasonably and has an ongoing demand.
[12:39:05] <_methods> haha everyone wants taht lol

[12:39:54] <_methods> we're just starting to ramp up to get certified
[12:40:02] <PetefromTn_> I know shops around here make parts for the big boat industry locally. Many of the shops make custom parts for the wakeboard boats and the wakeboard towers etc...
[12:40:10] <Tom_itx> i remember when we had to get iso9000 certified
[12:40:17] <Tom_itx> for Boeing
[12:40:18] <_methods> yeah iso is easy

[12:42:32] <_methods> i'm guessing
[12:42:38] <Tom_itx> probably so nowdays
[12:42:51] <Tom_itx> i know most of them run Catia now
[12:42:58] <_methods> ugh
[12:43:02] <PetefromTn_> I am quite sure I would never be able to get any work from places like that working from my small shop.
[12:43:03] <Tom_itx> :)
[12:43:13] <_methods> you'd be suprised
[12:43:13] <Tom_itx> sure you can

[12:43:40] <_methods> we don't make plane parts

[12:44:03] <_methods> lots
[12:44:18] <_methods> it's our inventory that's the problem
[12:44:19] <PetefromTn_> I just need a frackin' foot in the door so I can show people I can make good parts somewhere that needs parts made and I am trying to find that now.
[12:44:24] <_methods> we need to clean up our tracking

[12:44:44] <PetefromTn_> no not material certs I can get those.
[12:44:56] <_methods> no we need them tracked beter lol

[12:45:48] <Tom_itx> it just drives the cost up

[12:50:44] <_methods> nothign big

[12:52:51] <PetefromTn_> We got the spindle control setup the other day via serial modbus and it works great now. Fixed a noise error issue I was having with the mesa setup 0-10v which was nice.
[12:53:18] <_methods> you got umbrella tool changer or a real tool changer?
[12:53:21] <PetefromTn_> No fault of the mesa car probably just a wiring issue on my part.

[15:22:55] <PetefromTn_> CaptHindsight I dunno about the stepper drives but they DID have a one time return policy no questions asked where if you had a problem you can send the drive back for replacement. After that they want to have you send the drive in for repair. I sent one in and had it repaired but it was repairable. They gave me a discounted price on another one. this was for the servo drives not steppers tho.

[15:51:16] <PetefromTn_> ya know I hear people say that all the time but the shop I worked in had a BUNCH of those haas machines and they cut only steel and tool steel 24/7 with no issues at all..
[15:51:38] <_methods> their fine if you don't hit it hard
[15:51:38] <PetefromTn_> from a VF2 up to a VF5.
[15:51:49] <_methods> if you run them full bore they will die

[15:52:07] <CaptHindsight> btw, Shars stocks most things in St Charles except many of the end mills are drop shipped when you order from the suppliers

[16:03:53] <Zaarin> Hi guys, I spent this afternoon grinding through this thick 15mm plate it now fits the flywheel but I still want to make this 58mm radius (116mm diameter) bore through the middle of it so this pipe slots through, the dremel trio circular cutting tool is alright for marking it, but would take weeks to cut through this plate metal. You think I should just use a million 1mm holes around the
[16:03:53] <Zaarin> borehole marking, or just bodge angle grind it like I've done with the outer circle? Here's some photos: http://i.imgur.com/XRpm0os.jpg ... http://i.imgur.com/TDf9IyO.jpg ... and here's what it looked like this morning when it was still uncut scrap: http://i.imgur.com/zBOnZ2N.jpg
[16:04:33] <zeeshan> syyl_ws: i see what you mean
[16:04:42] <zeeshan> standard collets are semi-spherical on the face
[16:04:45] <zeeshan> but tormach is flat
[16:05:48] <syyl_ws> an below the spindle nose
[16:05:51] <zeeshan> yea
[16:05:52] MF70 is now known as MF70-de
[16:05:54] <Zaarin> It's much too big for a hole saw and a drill press!
[16:05:54] <syyl_ws> thats the important part

[16:06:29] <syyl_ws> right, thats the pdf ;)

[16:06:49] <Connor> Now, I have the flat collet..
[16:06:55] <syyl_ws> ah
[16:07:02] <syyl_ws> ok, i was wrong ;)
[16:07:10] <syyl_ws> hat it in another way in my head
[16:07:19] <Connor> syyl_ws: had what wrong ?

[16:07:41] <syyl_ws> i forgott that the tts holders are undercut
[16:07:42] <CaptHindsight> Zaarin: what tools do you have at your disposal?
[16:07:42] <zeeshan> Never use unbalanced cutters.
[16:07:44] <zeeshan> ^
[16:07:44] <zeeshan> lol
[16:07:55] <syyl_ws> try that with an boring heaf ;)
[16:07:55] <zeeshan> so that means no fly cutters!
[16:07:59] <zeeshan> or boring head
[16:08:09] <Connor> zeeshan: No.. They have a fly cutter..
[16:08:29] <Connor> and.. I wouldn't use a boring head with TTS anyway..
[16:08:44] <Connor> Though, I could.. Mine is 3/4" shank. :)
[16:08:45] <CaptHindsight> Zaarin: how precise do you need that hole to be?
[16:08:49] <Zaarin> Angle grinder 4 inch, 350watt drill press, 500watt impact drill, geared hand drill (favourite), file, dremel rotory tool, dremel trio, circular grip for dremel trio, pliers, screwdrivers, GYS arc welder
[16:08:51] <syyl_ws> they have the flycutter from hell :D

[16:09:48] <Connor> section 9, they have a TTS Boring Tool
[16:11:01] <CaptHindsight> Zaarin: well if you had a fly cutter you could put that in your drill press and slowly bore down
[16:11:23] <Zaarin> I'v ebeen told flycutter+chut key + drill press = accident waiting to happen
[16:11:35] <tjtr33> like a fly cutter but a trammeling tool, only cuts a circular slot ( less work )
[16:11:48] <CaptHindsight> Zaarin: yeah, but you're keeping an eye on it and taking your time
[16:12:02] <Zaarin> On the slowest pulley speed?
[16:12:19] <Zaarin> What do I need to make a makeshift flycutter? I'm guessing this is a facemask job just in case
[16:12:23] <CaptHindsight> yeah, and go down slow

[16:13:42] <CaptHindsight> if your spaceship crash landed and you needed to make a similar part, what would you do with the tools at hand
[16:14:18] <Zaarin> My thoughts are sod it, the hole's marked, grind it out just be careful not to go over the mark and do circular marks on both sides
[16:14:40] <Zaarin> Nothing cuts metal as quickly and as the angle grinder
[16:14:48] <Connor> The flat collet might be for tools that don't have the relief cut into them..

[16:39:58] <Zaarin> but that IS what I need
[16:40:04] <tjtr33> Cyprus the island?
[16:40:07] <Zaarin> aye
[16:40:27] <Zaarin> the island with a tonne of solar energy and zero common sense
[16:40:47] <tjtr33> dang! you're pretty much stuck with oreding & waiting . sorry mate
[16:41:29] <tjtr33> is it solar steam?
[16:41:47] <tjtr33> heliotropic focuser?
[16:41:52] <cradek> tjtr33: those are also known around my shop as "whirling helicopter of death"
[16:42:09] <Zaarin> that's what I'm working on yes because there is a law prohibiting the sale and use of photovoltaics back to the grid without special permission, however there is no law prohibiting the use of parabolic mirror steam turbine systems
[16:42:15] <Zaarin> also this can produce clean water out of shite water
[16:42:23] <tjtr33> can be :) but can also make very nice shiny ribbons of death

[16:51:04] <Zaarin> use the dremel to engrave a 116mm diameter circular groove that's less than 1mm deep, take off the dremel, stick the plate under the drill press with a 1mm drillbit in and drill a hundred 1mm holes around the circumference of the marked circular grove then go again with the 2mm drill bit, then the 3 mm bit until I have a jaggeddy but circular hole through?
[16:51:09] -!- Tugge has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[16:51:24] <Zaarin> question is, won't the 1mm drillbit snap at about 6mm depth?
[16:51:41] <cradek> no, it'll snap at about 3mm
[16:51:59] <cradek> why would you use such small drills if you don't have to?
[16:52:56] <cradek> drill big holes almost touching, and then use a hacksaw?
[16:53:02] <archivist> on thick plate you start with a much larger drill
[16:53:41] <Zaarin> archivist, I'd use a 120mm holesaw if I could but the drill won't go slow enough, it'll screech like hell and then jam up
[16:54:21] <cradek> 120mm is too big, 1mm is too small
[16:54:28] <cradek> use something in between, haha
[16:55:00] <CaptHindsight> you could use the hole saw, only you'll have to go down very slowly and keep it cool
[16:55:39] <CaptHindsight> fill the gap with weld
[16:56:02] <archivist> his drill is one of those little 350w jobs, will complain at any real hard work
[16:56:05] <Zaarin> only problem there is how do you make sure the pipe isn't close to one side but far away from the other so when it spins it's off center?
[16:56:16] <archivist> lathe
[16:56:20] <Zaarin> you need a $7,000 machine for that
[16:56:25] <CaptHindsight> yeah, but you are going to weld anyway
[16:56:27] <archivist> go find a machine shop
[16:56:59] <tjtr33> maybe removing teeth on hole saw (keep every 5th say) would increase chip clearance and allow higher rpm, then weld in ctr posn (careful setup)
[16:57:14] <archivist> belt drive to a car hub would make a redneck lathe
[16:57:48] <tjtr33> thats canadian, not redneck, i saw the video

[17:00:29] <tjtr33> its a big project, can you work on some other bit & wait for good tools or service?
[17:00:32] <archivist> unless the steam seal is thought about real soon all this effort is totally wasted
[17:00:35] <Zaarin> with mod 3.0 gears, how many mm off centre can I still be and the mechanism will still work?

[17:04:05] <CaptHindsight> http://i.imgur.com/TDf9IyO.jpg is this what the finished part will look like?
[17:04:06] <Zaarin> That was just proof I could weld two bits of pipe together
[17:04:22] <tjtr33> i saw the movie wonky tube
[17:04:26] <Zaarin> yes capthindsight
[17:04:46] <archivist> have you pressure tested the weld
[17:04:49] <CaptHindsight> sounds like something on Skinamax
[17:05:19] <tjtr33> im wrong it was the infamous 'twonky'
[17:05:48] <Zaarin> nope, not pressure tested, no idea what it'll handle until the day the whole thing gets switched on
[17:05:54] <Zaarin> I'm just relying on "overengineering"
[17:06:23] <CaptHindsight> Zaarin: whats the tube fit into? are you spinning a steam pipe with that gear?

[17:10:20] <tjtr33> hope its not the whole surface
[17:10:55] <jdh> not sure how they are doing it.
[17:11:07] <jdh> they were going to grind, but the edges got hot and warped
[17:11:20] <Zaarin> the top of the pipe has a curved pipe that bends round 90º to the horizontal, the bottom of the pipe goes to a labyrinth seal with another 90 degree bend pipe that goes to the water collection system (maybe later a turbine)
[17:11:33] <tjtr33> we use to size some copper electrode in a bucket of dilute acid. dip it in, clock of 10 secs, remove, rince, measure, calc ne dip time...

[17:14:17] <Zaarin> I'm hoping to step down the gearshaft a couple of times so a NEMA 34 on each axis so it's also "low energy" as well as "eco friendly"

[17:20:15] <zeeshan> 1/16 size
[17:21:02] <Zaarin> Well if the O ring is good enough for missiles, it's good enough for steampunk
[17:21:19] <zeeshan> if you look age page 10

[17:21:50] <tjtr33> any estimate of the pressure on the seal
[17:22:27] <Zaarin> metal wire ring?
[17:22:36] <zeeshan> they're c-rings
[17:22:38] <zeeshan> with a spring inside em
[17:22:51] <Zaarin> So I can just weld steel wire on the outside of a pipe in between plates with holes cut out to seal it?
[17:23:00] <zeeshan> no
[17:23:02] <Zaarin> ahha so the spring seals tehm shut?
[17:23:14] <zeeshan> its a c-ring
[17:23:21] <zeeshan> cause when you close it, it wants to spring back into position
[17:23:29] <zeeshan> if you're really on a tight budget
[17:23:41] <zeeshan> just make an o-ring groove and use copper wire
[17:23:51] <CaptHindsight> but this is supposed to be low tech, his seals need to be made of rope and pitch
[17:24:00] <zeeshan> copper wire is pretty low tech
[17:24:01] <zeeshan> ;p
[17:24:07] <Zaarin> How thick copper wire?
[17:24:13] <zeeshan> 0.030 will work
[17:24:21] <zeeshan> it wont seal as great as the c-rings
[17:24:33] <archivist> copper is usually not used on a moving joint

[17:40:17] <archivist> you should do some thinking/design before building
[17:40:22] <CaptHindsight> is this for power generation or water purification?

[17:49:13] <Zaarin> well I figured it'd be useful to cook a kebab, ahem Souvlaki (kebab is turkish word) with the sun, it'd be handy to purify lots of water quickly, it'd be handy to generate power using non photovoltaic system and there's a big old Skydish I got for nothing because the owner uses internet now and cut off their subscription and their dish in the wind was cracking the concrete
[17:49:30] <Zaarin> They should have paid me to take it away

[17:49:43] <IchGuckLive> hoi all B)
[17:51:40] <CaptHindsight> one problem with that type of reflector is efficiency (you lose the center area) and having to mount something with any weight at the focus
[17:51:58] -!- FreezingCold [FreezingCold!~FreezingC@] has joined #linuxcnc
[17:52:26] <Zaarin> and with my design cut away a 1 foot by 2m chunk at the bottom so the dish doesn't clip with the x axis shaft
[17:52:37] <Zaarin> I accept there will be losses
[17:53:00] <CaptHindsight> yeah, you still have lots of area for solar
[17:53:20] <IchGuckLive> Zaarin: going green
[17:53:40] <Zaarin> the cost of water and electricity here is not funny
[17:54:23] <IchGuckLive> is self drilled water use in the USA alowed
[17:54:29] <IchGuckLive> or in canada
[17:54:54] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: have you tried the newer tb6600 stepper drives?
[17:55:22] <Zaarin> the water table is nearly sea level
[17:55:27] <IchGuckLive> no im not in business now the Ubiversity changed towards mach and im off
[17:55:46] <Zaarin> more and more bore holes are appearing, the resevoirs are so low now people can stand up in them
[17:55:56] <IchGuckLive> Zaarin: sealevel means salt
[17:55:59] <Zaarin> yep
[17:56:07] <Zaarin> then only thing to do is desalinate
[17:56:20] <Zaarin> and knowing the cyprus government they'll do the most expensive method, gas and oil
[17:56:25] <IchGuckLive> windpower
[17:56:30] <IchGuckLive> at nearsea
[17:56:38] <Zaarin> why not direct solar?
[17:56:41] <Zaarin> to desalinate?
[17:56:49] <Zaarin> that's what I intend to find out
[17:56:57] <Zaarin> this project is more a feasability study
[17:56:59] <IchGuckLive> solar is max 20hr wind is always on at sea
[17:57:41] <IchGuckLive> Dubai is on 60m³ per min desalting on wind
[17:57:44] <CaptHindsight> Zaarin: what size is your focal point? can you put the supports for it in the area of the dish that is cut out?
[17:57:55] <Zaarin> And how much loss is there with wind--> mechanical rotational energy-->electricity--> heat-->boiled recondensed carbon filtered steam back to clean water?
[17:58:08] <Zaarin> yeah sure

[17:58:35] <IchGuckLive> oh no boiling involved this is century technologie
[17:58:36] <Zaarin> polish at night for obvious reasons
[17:58:39] <IchGuckLive> use osmosis jones
[17:58:55] <IchGuckLive> its 99% energie eficent
[17:59:06] <Zaarin> and how much power do you get from osmosis?
[17:59:13] <IchGuckLive> and you got some naturwal incredians left
[17:59:18] <Zaarin> I'm trying to prove you can kill 2 birds with one stone here
[17:59:38] <Zaarin> power AND clean water
[17:59:43] <IchGuckLive> osmosis is the desalt technic not the power

[18:30:01] <IchGuckLive> i use heeks
[18:30:24] <IchGuckLive> for wing i did a simple gcode its in the lib at wiki linuxcnc
[18:31:44] <tjtr33> i watcjhed your videos, thx, was wondering about iso & conic radii in corners
[18:31:54] <IchGuckLive> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDF-FsudRsE
[18:32:42] <IchGuckLive> radius is only performed on XY in UV xou might get an error on 2.5.3

[18:34:04] <zeeshan> you guys like my car body
[18:34:04] <zeeshan> :D
[18:34:16] <tjtr33> ah, so its always conic radii ( iso is same top & bot , conic is 2 diff radii top & bot )

[18:41:50] <IchGuckLive> tjtr33: http://foengarage.de/st_ko.jpg This is what you can do a cube goes out to a radius cross
[18:43:41] <IchGuckLive> its the part from the Linuxcnc modification test
[18:44:10] <CaptHindsight> http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/digital-stepper-motor-driver/3-axis-dsp-based-digital-stepper-drive-max-60-vdc-6-0a the manual is reprint from Leadshine
[18:44:44] <CaptHindsight> tjtr33: ever try these ^^^
[18:44:45] <tjtr33> IchGuckLive, yes those are conic ( large radius to a radius of 0 ;)
[18:45:03] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: if you mount all togeter it may look like http://foengarage.de/mesa_elek.jpg
[18:45:52] <IchGuckLive> see in video tjtr33 how it is done you need only eqal line numbers
[18:45:56] <tjtr33> CaptHindsight, not tried, reading docs now (dsp in stepper drive??)
[18:46:47] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: is the PC in a separate box?
[18:47:04] <IchGuckLive> its a notebook
[18:48:19] <CaptHindsight> I'm going to fit everything into one mini-itx case
[18:48:43] <IchGuckLive> yeah then the 3axis is the best for you only one pice
[18:49:08] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: will it bee a 3D printer
[18:49:16] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: have you tried the Gecko drives? What do you get got 2x the price?
[18:49:32] <CaptHindsight> get got/get for
[18:49:45] <IchGuckLive> i cand get gecko here in germany only leadshines around
[18:50:36] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: yes, 3-axis Cartesian, nema23's
[18:51:28] <IchGuckLive> 3d printing will change after August as the look like patends go open
[18:51:29] <CaptHindsight> low cost version with steppers
[18:51:42] <CaptHindsight> not really, the patents all overlap
[18:51:55] <IchGuckLive> so the prise will trop on 1st Sep towards 350UD
[18:52:01] <IchGuckLive> s
[18:52:12] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: what type of 3D printer?
[18:52:20] <IchGuckLive> ultimate
[18:52:29] <CaptHindsight> oh FDM
[18:53:32] <IchGuckLive> the 2 main Stroes here have oredert about 1Mio pices from the open patents and they will fill the stores on 8Oclock 1st sep 2014
[18:54:17] <CaptHindsight> yeah, I don't work much with 3d printers for plastic toys
[18:54:19] <IchGuckLive> also freescupter EX2 is ready and will drop to 400USD
[18:54:57] <IchGuckLive> it is in a Air invirerment controlled space so you get near 180Deg mashine temp an so best priontings
[18:55:32] <tjtr33> CaptHindsight, so that gizmo is 3 axis and VFD drive inabox, seems like a clever item, but i'd like a user review
[18:55:57] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: we can do everything an FDM printer does with SLA and DLP at 10-100x higher speeds
[18:56:13] <CaptHindsight> tjtr33: I might get one later today
[18:56:30] <CaptHindsight> heading over that way for parts and beer

[18:58:06] <tjtr33> Thiel
[18:58:15] <CaptHindsight> small world
[19:00:23] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: practical applications of 3d printing require a mix of tech, FDM, SLA, SLS etc in the same machine, but you won't see those in the west for >10 years
[19:02:21] <CaptHindsight> same for tissue printers, need a liver, fly to China
[19:03:09] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: in the unicersity we did a highspeed test on 3d prining with Nitrogen envirerment and low pressure Vaccum
[19:03:36] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: SLS?

[19:06:24] <IchGuckLive> there is no material on inflow its all meted inside the mashine and injekted like a printer does
[19:06:46] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: feed speed
[19:07:37] <CaptHindsight> we can easily do 100um layers over 19 x 11 cm at 6mm/minute Z

[22:58:32] <andypugh> Today's shop was because I have heard that soaking rusty steel parts in dilute molasses leads to non-rusty parts. It's got to be easier to get rid of than gallons of phosphoric acid.
