[00:31:18] <XXCoder> woot
[00:31:23] <XXCoder> I got screwed
[00:31:26] <XXCoder> ballscrewed
[00:31:28] <XXCoder> lol
[00:31:32] <XXCoder> I got package
[00:32:29] <zeeshan> yayyyyy
[00:32:40] <XXCoder> gonna open it soonish
[00:32:50] <XXCoder> bit tired so relaxing till dinner
[00:33:02] <zeeshan> yea i came home
[00:33:03] <zeeshan> and passed right out
[00:33:07] <zeeshan> i guess its the heat
[00:33:21] <XXCoder> not heat here, just standing whole day at work lol
[00:33:27] <XXCoder> finishing results from cnc
[00:33:43] <zeeshan> XXCoder: where do you work again?
[00:33:52] <XXCoder> it was slow because giant cnc router was down

[02:47:22] <XXCoder> leadshine uhh heh was that stuble hint of poisonous lead and the movie the shining? ;)
[02:47:31] <scooty_puff> thanks but youre like 10 minutes too late
[02:49:31] <somenewguy> could someone post a bug for me in the proper place? I can't figure out SF site and really don't have the time right now (work) but i don't want it to get forgotten
[02:50:33] <somenewguy> summed up in one line, in axis in linuxcnc 2.5.4 on 10.04, if you jog A axis, press shift while jogging, release a axis jog key, and then release shift, the A axis will continue to jog
[02:51:02] <CaptHindsight> sounds like a latching jog feature :)
[02:51:10] <XXCoder> even if it hits limit button?
[02:51:30] <somenewguy> my a axis is wrapped, so there should be no limit if i read the manuals correctly
[02:51:43] <somenewguy> no soft limits applied, no limit switches eihter
[02:55:25] <zeeshan> XXCoder: im glad you like em!
[02:55:29] <zeeshan> btw update for you guys
[02:55:38] <zeeshan> cnc4pc aka arturo is excellent.
[02:55:49] <zeeshan> he's taking back the burnt supply and the working one
[02:55:57] <zeeshan> and giving me a toriodal in exchange.
[02:56:04] <CaptHindsight> nice
[02:56:14] <zeeshan> ps. don't run smps supply
[02:56:19] <zeeshan> without a snubber circuit!
[02:56:24] <zeeshan> or they will blow up from back emf
[02:56:44] <CaptHindsight> what were you supplying with it?
[02:56:49] <somenewguy> mines fine

[02:57:02] <zeeshan> output was 72VDC 8A
[02:57:08] <zeeshan> running 1200oz-in steppers
[02:57:11] <zeeshan> nema23
[02:57:11] <zeeshan> wer
[02:57:15] <zeeshan> er, nema34
[02:57:35] <zeeshan> it blew up at the end of a jog
[02:57:38] <zeeshan> at 150 ipm
[02:57:47] <somenewguy> thats a sprint in my book
[02:58:00] <zeeshan> arturo specifically says to run the snubber circuit
[02:58:06] <zeeshan> while automation technologies doesnt
[02:58:15] <zeeshan> it just seems like automation technologies is a reseller
[02:58:29] <zeeshan> and doesn't know much about the products it sells when it comes to everything but steppers and stepper drivers
[02:58:52] <somenewguy> I am homebrewing a small unregulated supply for my machine, what do you think about a mov to protect from spikes?

[02:58:57] <CaptHindsight> he's a ME (PhD) not an EE
[02:58:58] <Connor> is arturo
[02:59:04] <zeeshan> Connor: yes
[02:59:15] <zeeshan> i bought the supplies from automation technologies
[02:59:18] <zeeshan> but im returning them back to cnc4pc
[02:59:27] <Connor> what happened ?
[02:59:30] <zeeshan> since arturo supplies automation technologies with the power supplies
[02:59:38] <zeeshan> Connor: one of my smps shot plasma out the fan
[02:59:38] <zeeshan> lol

[03:00:37] <Connor> not cool
[03:00:41] <zeeshan> yea
[03:00:47] <zeeshan> luckily the plasma didnt burn my motherboard
[03:00:52] <zeeshan> cause the mobo took the blunt of the plasma
[03:01:13] <Connor> youch.
[03:02:42] amnesic is now known as amnesic_away
[03:02:59] <zeeshan> the only thing im not looking forward to
[03:03:06] <zeeshan> is drilling 4 holes in the enclosure while it's assembled
[03:03:24] <zeeshan> im thinking i can put 4-5 layers of duct tape at the location where the hole will be made
[03:03:28] <zeeshan> and take it easy
[03:03:33] <zeeshan> and keep a shop vac on the back side of the hole
[03:03:53] <Connor> all i can say is.. Vacuum.. and and use a punch to dimple the enclosure before drilling.
[03:04:05] <zeeshan> actually
[03:04:13] <zeeshan> you just gave me an excellent idea
[03:04:15] <zeeshan> i can use greenlee punches
[03:04:19] <zeeshan> and that way i wont have chips
[03:04:26] <zeeshan> its only a 1/4" hole
[03:05:11] <XXCoder> zeeshan: nice!
[03:05:17] <Connor> I have a set of chassis bunches.. but that's for bigger holes.. and the require a pilot hole.
[03:05:59] <XXCoder> sigh. still cant find good place to buy couplers.
[03:06:13] <Connor> XXCoder: What kind are you looking for ?
[03:06:37] <XXCoder> nema 23 to I think 1/2 inch dia screws
[03:06:50] <Connor> 1/2" ??
[03:06:57] <Connor> Dang.. it not turned down?
[03:07:08] <XXCoder> turned down?
[03:07:27] <Connor> the end of the screw. 1/2" awful big..
[03:07:35] <XXCoder> oh it is thick screw
[03:07:41] <Connor> what kind ?
[03:07:48] <XXCoder> ballscrews
[03:08:00] <Connor> from where?
[03:08:18] <XXCoder> http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-ballscrews-RM1605-300-600-600mm-3-nuts-BK-BF12-/250451252435?pt=BI_Heavy_Equipment_Parts&hash=item3a500ed4d3
[03:08:42] <Connor> okay, those should be turned down..
[03:08:49] <Connor> you better check then end and make sure..
[03:08:56] <zeeshan> XXCoder: are you sure its 1/2"?
[03:09:02] <zeeshan> the ball screw end for a 1605 should be 10mm
[03:09:10] <XXCoder> hmm
[03:09:23] <Connor> or 3/8"
[03:09:28] <XXCoder> 0.39 in
[03:09:32] <XXCoder> mihht be it
[03:09:58] <XXCoder> it says 16 mm
[03:10:12] <XXCoder> 0.629 in appro
[03:10:35] <Connor> WHAT? The ballscrew is 16mm...
[03:10:44] <Connor> it should be turned down...
[03:10:59] <XXCoder> I still dont know what turned down is
[03:11:10] <Connor> the SMOOTH part of the ballscrew..
[03:11:21] <Connor> the part that's NOT screw..
[03:11:23] <CaptHindsight> are the ballscrew ends even machined?
[03:11:26] <Connor> I.E the ends.
[03:11:36] <XXCoder> yeah it seems to be 16 mm at ends
[03:11:56] <Connor> Is that the kit you got ?
[03:11:59] <XXCoder> yep
[03:12:08] <Connor> do they look like the pictures ?
[03:12:14] <XXCoder> exact.
[03:13:23] <Connor> 12mm
[03:13:27] <CaptHindsight> so probably 1605 ballscrew with 12mm ends
[03:13:30] <Connor> they came with BF and BK 12mm
[03:13:48] -!- AR__ has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[03:13:49] <XXCoder> oh! misread chart. 16mm is dia of ball screw itself
[03:13:58] <Connor> http://www.mcmaster.com/#oldham-couplings/=s5lr9b3
[03:14:00] <Connor> http://www.mcmaster.com/#oldham-couplings/=s5lr9b
[03:14:03] <Connor> use those.
[03:14:25] <Connor> need of total of 2 hubs and 1 disk per motor/ballscrew.
[03:14:40] <Connor> you can get clamping or set screw..
[03:15:07] <Connor> if they don't have them in mm.. get the closest size and drill / ream them out..
[03:15:15] -!- skorasaurus has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
[03:15:32] <XXCoder> makes sense. looks pretty good prices
[03:15:33] <Connor> I use Acetel discs..
[03:15:57] <Connor> and I have purchased a extra disc in case I broke one.. as they can act as a mechanical fuse.
[03:16:08] <XXCoder> slightly confused on one thing
[03:16:18] <XXCoder> one clamps on motor, one on shaft
[03:16:22] <Connor> Oh. and you and use clampping on one side and set screw on the other.
[03:16:25] <XXCoder> but they dont seem to be connected
[03:16:25] <Connor> yup.
[03:16:29] <XXCoder> ahh
[03:16:41] <XXCoder> so I have to provide framework so they stay together?
[03:16:41] <Connor> that's what the disc does.
[03:16:56] <Connor> one sec.. picture time..
[03:17:26] <XXCoder> $10.14 each (cheapest) each hub and 2 each screw. ow
[03:17:33] <XXCoder> disc is $2
[03:18:25] <zeeshan> fak that stuff
[03:18:27] <zeeshan> use solid couplings
[03:18:29] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/conversion/machine_x_y_done.JPG
[03:18:31] <zeeshan> real men use solid couplings!! :D
[03:18:39] <XXCoder> lol
[03:18:46] <Connor> zeeshan: and break the shaft on the stepper ?
[03:18:47] <zeeshan> im using a solid one
[03:18:51] <zeeshan> seems fine
[03:18:52] <zeeshan> tom is also
[03:19:02] <zeeshan> the shaft isn't gonna break
[03:19:04] <zeeshan> if its aligned right
[03:19:05] <XXCoder> I need something breakable to save motor. I will be running cnc like an idiot like I am
[03:19:13] <Valen> Connor: dude, scale your pictures ;->
[03:19:19] <Connor> oldham allow for offset
[03:19:48] <zeeshan> Connor: looking good!
[03:19:49] <Connor> and make it real easy to remove and re-install the steppers..
[03:19:57] <zeeshan> ive had mine on and off
[03:19:57] <Valen> you can get solid couplings to allow a little bit of misalignment
[03:20:00] <zeeshan> a couple times now
[03:20:06] <Valen> well kinda solid
[03:20:16] <Valen> http://www.motioncontroltips.com/2012/08/28/reli-a-flex-shaft-couplings-offers-long-life-low-kinematic-error/
[03:20:18] <zeeshan> both my stepper and ball screw are within 3 thou of each other
[03:20:19] <Valen> that kinda thing
[03:20:53] <zeeshan> Connor: you and me haave been working on our cnc conversions forever
[03:20:56] <Connor> Unless you get those in stainless which are $$$ they'll break.. at least my alumn ones did.
[03:20:58] <zeeshan> im getting sick of working on it!
[03:20:59] <zeeshan> :D
[03:21:14] <Connor> zeeshan: Mine is been done for a while.. just been upgrading it..
[03:21:20] <Connor> I.E adding the enclosure etc.
[03:21:26] <zeeshan> o
[03:21:42] <Connor> XXCoder: All I can say is.. spend the $$ on the oldham's
[03:21:52] <Connor> Is this for a homemade or a conversion ?
[03:22:05] <XXCoder> con homemade. first one, wood frame
[03:22:35] <Connor> I used Alumn Beam couplers on my Router..
[03:22:48] <Connor> oldhams would have made it easier.
[03:23:00] <zeeshan> those aluminujm beam couplers are a piec eof shit
[03:23:02] <zeeshan> they have backlash
[03:23:05] <zeeshan> a lot of it
[03:23:18] <zeeshan> like 10 thou
[03:23:24] <Connor> they shouldn't.
[03:23:28] <XXCoder> even supposely zero like this http://www.amazon.com/Series-12%C2%A1%C3%8112mm-Flexible-Coupling-Coupler/dp/B00GSLS7L4/ref=sr_1_25?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1401247383&sr=1-25&keywords=cnc+shaft+12+mm+.25+in
[03:23:29] <zeeshan> well mine did
[03:23:30] <Connor> if mounted and used correctly.
[03:23:33] <zeeshan> thats why i converted to solid
[03:23:43] <Valen> they can't have backlash
[03:23:43] <zeeshan> and the backlash is 0.0005 now
[03:23:53] <zeeshan> Valen: i believe mine were stretching
[03:23:54] <Connor> XXCoder: those are the ones I used on my router..
[03:23:55] <zeeshan> or deforming
[03:24:05] <Valen> thats different ;->
[03:24:17] <zeeshan> i think theyre meant for small steppers
[03:24:21] <XXCoder> cant find any meteric one end and imperial other end
[03:24:21] <zeeshan> like 180-200oz-in
[03:24:23] <zeeshan> not big ones
[03:24:24] <Connor> XXCoder: Had 3 of them break.. had to get replacements..
[03:24:36] <zeeshan> Connor: what size steppers?
[03:24:41] <zeeshan> were they breaking on
[03:24:45] <XXCoder> NEMA 23 here
[03:24:47] <Connor> XXCoder: You'll have to get one sized under-sized and drill it
[03:25:01] <Connor> NEMA 23, 340oz I think..
[03:25:04] <XXCoder> good thing I already plan to buy drill press
[03:25:08] <XXCoder> have to have one
[03:25:11] <XXCoder> I suck on hand drilling
[03:25:30] <Connor> Honesty.. I think I hand drill mine..
[03:25:34] <XXCoder> if I hand drill probably do 45 angle on something that should be nice and 90 angle ;)
[03:25:44] <Connor> Held them in a wood vblock..
[03:26:20] <XXCoder> well guess its 12mm - 6 mm then. easy enough to expand 6mm to 6.35 mm (1/4 in)
[03:26:20] <zeeshan> wtf
[03:26:25] <zeeshan> they were yieldingf with 340oz-in
[03:26:27] <zeeshan> lol
[03:26:36] <zeeshan> clearly theyre not designed for fatigue
[03:26:55] <zeeshan> Connor: do the oldham couplers wear?
[03:27:17] <zeeshan> drilling the coupler on a drill press
[03:27:24] <zeeshan> will mean the coupler itself will have runout
[03:27:26] <Connor> zeeshan: They can.. but, not very much.
[03:27:42] <zeeshan> cause its quite hard to get the hole concentric with the OD
[03:27:51] <Connor> zeeshan: Thats why I used a hand drill
[03:28:02] <zeeshan> still youll get 20 thou runout
[03:28:04] <zeeshan> er
[03:28:09] <zeeshan> 20 thou out of concentricity

[03:28:22] <zeeshan> i ruined one of my timing belt pulleys like that
[03:28:22] <zeeshan> =[
[03:28:38] <zeeshan> im gonna bore it on the mill when i get the other ones in
[03:28:47] <zeeshan> since the lathe is out of service
[03:28:50] <Connor> zeeshan: They're flex couplers..
[03:29:04] <Connor> and the Oldhame's can take the miss-alignment too.
[03:29:25] <zeeshan> well the more theyre out of alignment
[03:29:29] <zeeshan> the quicker they'll wear?
[03:30:12] <XXCoder> other problemic part for me is somehow mount my nema 23. I will probably just use pipes though. where do I source those screws thats compitable with nema motors thread and such?
[03:30:29] <Connor> It'll take allot of use for the Acetel to wear..
[03:30:51] <XXCoder> oh. lol http://www.amazon.com/Coupling-Coupler-D25L30-Ceramic-Machinery/dp/B00IJ67D0W/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1401247835&sr=1-1&keywords=cnc+shaft+12+mm+.25+in
[03:30:55] <XXCoder> this is exact size
[03:31:35] <Connor> Not too sure about that one..
[03:31:58] <Connor> not sure if that is 0-backlash.. those are known as spider or love-joy..
[03:32:35] <Connor> XXCoder: bolt with through pipe not exactly good idea.. those can torque or twist.
[03:32:46] <XXCoder> http://www.amazon.com/Generic-6-35mmx12mm-Flexible-Coupling-Connector/dp/B00EQ1Y54G/ref=sr_1_2?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1401247945&sr=1-2&keywords=cnc+shaft+12+mm+6.35+mm
[03:32:51] <XXCoder> exact size too
[03:33:07] <Connor> give those a try..
[03:33:26] <XXCoder> yeah strightfoward enough. also buy 4 of em because I probably would break one lol
[03:33:37] <XXCoder> oh yeah
[03:34:00] <Connor> okay.. I think #10 screw
[03:34:21] <Connor> Don't remember.. Mine are through bolted.
[03:34:21] <XXCoder> how do I use the antibacklash "nut" on my ballscrews? its on side and I want parallel surface connect to it
[03:34:43] <Connor> XXCoder: How do you mean ?
[03:34:57] <XXCoder> look at kit I bought, its that thingy on screw
[03:35:05] <XXCoder> part that moves with rotation
[03:35:22] <Connor> yes.
[03:35:28] <Connor> so, you make a ballnut mount..
[03:35:34] <CaptHindsight> the first Amazon ones ^^ will flex and twist
[03:35:47] <Connor> http://www.amazon.com/Generic-6-35mmx12mm-Flexible-Coupling-Connector/dp/B00EQ1Y54G/ref=sr_1_2?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1401247945&sr=1-2&keywords=cnc+shaft+12+mm+6.35+mm
[03:35:54] <Connor> those are the ones if your going cheap.
[03:36:04] <XXCoder> yeah already decided on
[03:36:15] <XXCoder> I just want order all at once

[03:36:47] <Connor> ballnut mount.. Take a block.. little taller than the ballnut, drill hole so that bull nut can go through it.. then bolt it on.
[03:36:47] <zee-Lathe> c
[03:36:50] <zee-Lathe> woohoo
[03:36:52] <CaptHindsight> https://sdp-si.com/eStore/Catalog/Group/99
[03:36:57] <zee-Lathe> power line networking sucessful
[03:37:04] <XXCoder> so i really am required to make that? aw
[03:37:23] <Connor> XXCoder: How else you going to connect it ?
[03:37:29] <XXCoder> indeed
[03:37:44] <Connor> You can make them out of wood, plastic or metal.
[03:37:50] <Connor> depending on what tools you have.
[03:37:54] <Connor> I made mine out of MDF.
[03:37:57] <XXCoder> it'll hve to be wood
[03:38:19] -!- zee-Lathe has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[03:38:20] <Connor> and I used cross dowl nuts..
[03:38:26] <XXCoder> ok #10 screws gonna look for that later
[03:38:27] <Connor> in the MDF.
[03:38:37] <Connor> McMaster is Cheap.
[03:38:42] <Connor> and double check that..
[03:38:50] <Connor> with your stepper.
[03:39:44] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/cnc1.jpg
[03:39:53] <Connor> that's how I did mine.. I didn't use standoffs on it..
[03:40:03] <Connor> I mounted the steppers straight to the wood.
[03:40:20] <CaptHindsight> you want the oldham or bellows type not the lovejoy
[03:40:23] <XXCoder> probablyu way I will do
[03:40:33] <Connor> I lost a tad of travel on the Z..non on X or Y
[03:40:51] <XXCoder> as long as it has 3 or 4 in left I'm fine
[03:41:06] <XXCoder> I doubt I will need to use stock taller than 6 in
[03:41:14] <XXCoder> 6 in travel then
[03:41:28] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/cnc7.jpg
[03:41:41] <Connor> you can see the stepper going through the wall.. :)

[03:41:47] <XXCoder> lol yep
[03:41:52] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/cnc8.jpg
[03:41:59] <zee-Lathe> this is awesmoe
[03:42:02] <zee-Lathe> max jitter is 3411
[03:42:28] <XXCoder> so you just used gaint block of wood to hold router
[03:43:08] <Connor> 2 3/4" mdf laminated together, then I used a hole saw to drill it out.. then cut a slit.
[03:43:31] <Connor> that's a Bosh Colt.
[03:43:45] <Connor> What type of wood you using ?
[03:44:16] <Connor> Little hint when using a hole saw with MDF..
[03:44:34] <XXCoder> plywood for some parts, just wood for rest
[03:44:50] <CaptHindsight> http://docs-europe.electrocomponents.com/webdocs/0fb8/0900766b80fb8242.pdf differences in couplings
[03:44:52] <XXCoder> I really need to get a truck somehow so I can get larger wood parts from work lol
[03:45:19] <Connor> start the hole with the hole-saw.. just to mark the hole.. then.. using a forstner bit and drill 2 holes on the inside perimeter of the larger hole... on either side..
[03:45:34] <Connor> this allows the MDF chips/dust to clear out so you don't burn up the hole saw.

[03:51:51] <zeeshan> Connor: how much did that wood router cost you
[03:51:52] <zeeshan> total
[03:52:48] <Connor> Honestly.. No.. But, it's simple. A block of 3/4" wood. Hole in center large enough for ballnut to fit through (the round part) 4-6 holes for the bolts to go through, then 2 holes from the top to bolt it to the gantry
[03:53:14] <XXCoder> pretty strightforward. thanks
[03:53:43] <Connor> zeeshan: I lost track. more than it was suppose to be.. I ended up ordering 2nd set of screws because dumba$$ didn't tell me they weren't machined.
[03:53:58] <zeeshan> i want to make a cnc plasma
[03:53:59] <zeeshan> after this
[03:54:09] <Connor> $1200-1500 counting the Atom Based PC, The steppers, electronics, and E-chain
[03:54:17] <Connor> and the bosh colt router.
[03:54:24] <zeeshan> thatrs not bad at all
[03:54:44] <Connor> I'm going to rework most of it out of Alumn at some point.
[03:54:53] <XXCoder> so far mine is cheaper a bit lol but then dont have all parts yet
[03:55:17] <XXCoder> I would skip it and just stright uo buy that 2' x 3' 8020 rail kit as upgrade
[03:55:30] <Connor> I had to buy the MDF, the Cross Dowels / Barrel Nuts..
[03:55:34] <XXCoder> its not expensive $1399 something. no electric suystem though
[03:56:23] <Connor> the plexiglass, is from a old dot matrix printer enclosure..
[03:56:39] <XXCoder> got $200 off but pretty close http://www.finelineautomation.com/products/complete-2-x3-router-kit
[03:57:03] <Connor> I got so lucky on allot of the measurements on that thing, it's not even funny.
[03:57:21] <XXCoder> I probably wull go backwards on my cnc
[03:57:26] <XXCoder> Z first, Y then X
[03:57:30] <Connor> I never planned on putting the PC right next to it built in like that.. it just so happened that I had enough space on that side to do it.
[03:57:51] <Connor> I wanted it to have a footprint of 2' x 3' and fit under that shelf.
[03:57:55] <XXCoder> do Z first so after that I has known dimensions to build Y frame and so on
[03:58:04] <Connor> that in that picture.
[03:58:14] <CaptHindsight> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS6-Tzjeths ghetto conductive trace glue gun printer
[03:59:02] <Connor> I need to source new gas springs.. ones that are designed to be stored parallel to the ground instead of 60-90 degrees.
[03:59:14] <Connor> gas leaked out.
[03:59:16] <Connor> Oh well.
[03:59:25] <Connor> back later.

[17:07:35] <narogon> hi!!!
[17:07:44] <IchGuckLive> ;-)
[17:08:01] <narogon> do you know if it is possible jog more than one axis
[17:08:13] <narogon> using halui.jog
[17:08:16] <narogon> at the same time?
[17:08:23] -!- Guest71452 has quit [Quit: Leaving...]
[17:08:32] <IchGuckLive> why do you want this
[17:08:43] <narogon> because i'm using a joystick
[17:09:03] <narogon> and I want to move X and Y axis at the same tiem
[17:09:23] <narogon> but it the movement seems erratic
[17:09:41] <IchGuckLive> let me test this
[17:10:01] <narogon> i read it only process one movement at the same time
[17:10:04] * kfoltman would probably prefer something like angle dial + jog dial
[17:10:05] <narogon> and discard the others
[17:10:38] <kfoltman> otherwise it's too dependent on manual skills, which is never a good idea ;)
[17:10:49] <narogon> http://sourceforge.net/p/emc/bugs/345/
[17:11:48] <narogon> however it works if you press more than one key at the same time in the keyboard
[17:12:14] <IchGuckLive> narogon: works perfekt
[17:12:37] <IchGuckLive> how did you connect ypour jojstick
[17:13:05] <narogon> with a analogic input terminal
[17:13:09] <narogon> from beckhoff
[17:13:19] <narogon> i obtain the value correctly in hal
[17:13:29] <IchGuckLive> oh i got only a 3USD joypad here
[17:13:45] <narogon> i connect it with halui.jog.n.analog
[17:13:45] <IchGuckLive> the vid on how connect is on my youtube channel
[17:14:07] <archivist> narogon, do you have enough memory on the machine
[17:14:40] <narogon> memory?? do you mean RAM?
[17:14:56] <archivist> yes, eg user stuff being swapped out
[17:15:06] <narogon> yes
[17:15:27] <Jymmm> O_o
[17:15:35] <IchGuckLive> why dont you use the analog 2 dig so you got a bitwise
[17:15:49] <Jymmm> narogon: how much ram is installed on the machine?
[17:15:50] <IchGuckLive> net joy-xpos-jog halui.jog.1.minus <= input.0.abs-hat0x-is-pos

[17:17:41] <narogon> but this isn't the problem
[17:17:48] <narogon> i have a correct value in hal
[17:18:15] <narogon> i check it with scope

[17:23:24] <IchGuckLive> as i said ;-)
[17:23:56] <CaptHindsight> has anyone worked on a SCADA front end for Linuxcnc? I'd like to control things like stepper motors on gantries and have a simple UI.
[17:24:29] <narogon> i'm not sure i could use that Jymm due to i receive the information via Ethercat
[17:24:50] <narogon> I'm going to try with digital inputs

[17:38:06] <narogon> would do you think is the best subforum to place it?
[17:38:33] <CaptHindsight> custom machines that may not have any cutting or puting tools, but have synchronized motion
[17:38:34] <narogon> advanced configuration i supposed
[17:39:38] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: If they're synced, something has to control it, not necessarily a "dumb" device, is it?
[17:39:42] <CaptHindsight> ladder is too clunky, it needs a easy to see and use UI
[17:39:58] <Jymmm> ah, heh
[17:40:34] <CaptHindsight> lets say it's a gantry to load and unload parts to cnc mills
[17:41:33] <CaptHindsight> it's easy enough to use Linuxcnc to control the gantry but there's no UI for that
[17:42:06] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: Well, when you said you didn't want the kludginess of CL, I understand what you mean, but wouldn't that be part of your gcode ?
[17:42:39] <CaptHindsight> well you could use AXIS and mod it to look like SCADA UI's

[17:53:38] amnesic is now known as amnesic_away
[17:53:47] <CaptHindsight> that doesn't need to know every line of code, they just need to perform ON/OFF, change intervals between events, distance of movements etc

[17:56:05] <malcom2073> What do the UI's use to communicate with the linuxcnc backend, is it all done in NML?
[17:57:10] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: *I* have always hated xml, too bloated for my tastes. I prefer JSON. But, what *I* would do is make it native config from text (whatever flavor you decide), then pull those into GUI

[19:12:17] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: On their intranet they had a header navigation with five buttons.
[19:12:47] <CaptHindsight> gnome 2 vs gnome 3 etc
[19:13:14] <Jymmm> What they did was add a space between the buttons and the usability increased 600%. The issue was nobody realized they were actually controlls (buttons)

[19:14:54] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: So having a monkeyUI is more then (or less) than jjust "OH shiny thing" mentality.
[19:14:55] <CaptHindsight> what this might end up being is a UI builder for AXIS or similar

[19:16:12] <tjtr33> CaptHindsight, at Timtos 2005 i chgd the sink edm software from Heidenhain Dialog to a picture of the part, and drag & drop crosshairs.
[19:16:21] <tjtr33> The user bomb sighted the approx posn, then a textedit box opened for him to edit the numbers and describe the operation wanted.
[19:16:22] <tjtr33> the code ended up still Heidenhain code, but the user had simple front end. ( the example was Brembo brake pads )
[19:16:56] <tjtr33> so the user saw something familiar , made no huge mistakes in dimensions, and was alloewed to edit the position and operation info
[19:17:02] <tjtr33> hth
[19:17:04] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: are you a programmer even if as-needed?
[19:17:23] <CaptHindsight> tjtr33: yeah, applications like that
[19:18:11] <CaptHindsight> you don't know what the next machine will be but lots just need a simple UI vs the whole toolbox like AXIS
[19:18:50] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: You willing to think outside the box for a bit and play with something?
[19:19:36] <CaptHindsight> Jymmm: I try to only compile with a soldering iron :)
[19:19:59] <tjtr33> hard to say, but maybe PVbrowser or OpenAPC. else plan on a load of software attempts ( too loosely defined )

[19:21:36] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: Play with the examples in Rebol-View, it's less than 1MB full install and just look at the code behind each example (right click) http://www.rebol.com/rebol-view.html
[19:22:16] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: You can create all kind of things GUI wise in it, and it's now open source apache license.
[19:22:18] <CaptHindsight> tjtr33: was looking at OpenAPC yesterday
[19:22:55] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: extremely light weight, and cross platform from same code.
[19:23:14] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: can be complied to an self-contained executable too.
[19:23:31] <Jymmm> single file exacutable
[19:23:40] <CaptHindsight> that's why I was looking for any previous projects that tied into Linuxcnc besides Comedi

[20:02:39] <CaptHindsight> wire bending, rope cutters, pick-n-place etc etc
[20:03:27] <CaptHindsight> I was looking at open source SCADA as well since they have the GUI builders and the backends with drivers for instrumentation and process control
[20:04:42] <CaptHindsight> what do you guys think? Try to use some open SCADA tools for custom GUI's or maybe write a tool to make customizing AXIS easy

[20:08:13] <CaptHindsight> morph SCADA with linuxcnc
[20:08:49] <mozmck> why use linuxcnc at all - isn't it way overkill for some of that stuff?
[20:09:48] <CaptHindsight> mozmck: what else to use to cnc control a bunch of motors (servos or steppers) that has a easy UI?
[20:11:53] <CaptHindsight> mozmck: say a machine like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4l_nSUTwKc

[20:42:19] <SpeedEvil> On the topic of 'linuxcnc thingies'
[20:42:32] <SpeedEvil> I'm contemplating a linuxcnc concrete mixer.
[20:43:44] <mozmck> how about a linuxcnc doorbell?
[20:44:00] <SpeedEvil> Well - more than that - a teeny batch high-speed concrete mixer which mixes a batch of concrete at about 100C very, very fast, then squirts it into a mould, sprinkles chips on top of it, tampsit down, and then tips it out of the mould several minutes later when it's set.
[20:46:20] <mozmck> Sounds like more of something for a microcontroller or PLC to me.
[20:47:07] <CaptHindsight> cnc concrete block maker
[20:47:57] <SpeedEvil> mozmck: Perhaps - I'munsure.
[20:48:17] <CaptHindsight> Jymmm: will try that as well soon
[20:48:34] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: LOL, you could have done that by now =)
[20:48:42] <SpeedEvil> CaptHindsight: Sort-of. They're unusual concrete blocks. 1.2*0.6m or so is the design aim, 1.5cm thick, with chips fused to the top surface and strengthening members and keyhole fixings on the back
[20:49:14] <mozmck> I don't know either, but it doesn't sound like it would need much real motion control. Motors, switches/sensors, and timers?
[20:49:40] <SpeedEvil> Part of it is probably going to involve spreading patterns of chips
[20:49:47] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: It's system independant, there's no real "install", more like "unzip and run"
[20:49:53] <SpeedEvil> And wires.
