[00:09:46] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, ok, commented out all PWMgens, EMC now opens
[00:09:52] <alexchally_cnc> more, axis now opens
[00:10:38] <PCW> so now in a terminal run:
[00:10:39] <PCW> halcmd show all >everything.txt
[00:11:53] -!- Flipp has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:11:58] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, much output, such success
[00:12:03] <PCW> to get the names of the new pwmgens
[00:12:05] <PCW> (7I52S is on I/O 0..23)

[00:14:17] <ssi> ok cool, relays are working now
[00:15:31] <alexchally_cnc> pcw, so what used to be: hm2_[HOSTMOT2](BOARD).0.pwmgen.01 should become hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00 ?
[00:16:48] <PCW> hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.A-value
[00:17:28] <alexchally_cnc> and ...pwmgen.02 ---> hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.B-value
[00:17:30] <alexchally_cnc> ?
[00:17:55] <PCW> wait a sec your PWMgens should start at 0
[00:18:04] <alexchally_cnc> uhhhh they do
[00:18:04] <alexchally_cnc> sorry
[00:18:23] <alexchally_cnc> ...pwmgen.00 should map to A, .01 should map to B, etc?
[00:19:07] <PCW> so the first three pwmgens are 00.A, 00.B, 00.C
[00:19:09] <PCW> next three are 01.A,01.B,01.C
[00:19:24] -!- lucashodge has quit [Client Quit]
[00:20:28] <alexchally_cnc> ok, should 00.A and 01.A as the two differential lines?
[00:20:43] <alexchally_cnc> sorry if this is coming off as not so smart, not entirely sure what I am getting up to in here
[00:21:13] <PCW> No the pwmgen/hal has no knowledge of the differential aspect
[00:21:40] -!- badon [badon!~badon@pdpc/supporter/active/badon] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:22:31] <PCW> there are two 3 phase pwmgens ( 00 and 01)
[00:22:33] <PCW> each have three independent PWM outputs
[00:23:02] <PCW> you will want to set hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.deadtime and hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.01.deadtime to 0
[00:23:31] <PCW> and hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.frequency to 1600
[00:26:05] <PCW> you probably also need to set the PID maxoutput to about 95% of full PWM scale
[00:26:24] <alexchally_cnc> pcw, don't have deadtime in my .hal
[00:26:25] <alexchally_cnc> http://pastebin.com/kLGSy2ea
[00:26:36] <alexchally_cnc> that is the current .hal I am editing
[00:26:57] <PCW> you need to set it to 0
[00:27:54] <PCW> like
[00:27:56] <PCW> setp hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.deadtime 0
[00:28:09] <PCW> bbl ttgh
[00:28:49] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, I need to go home as well, can I hit you up on this tomorrow?
[00:28:53] <alexchally_cnc> much thanks for your help btw

[01:23:13] <PetefromTn_> whatsgoinon?
[01:23:32] <XXCoder> pee
[01:23:37] <XXCoder> Pee on it.
[01:23:49] <PetefromTn_> are you high?
[01:24:27] <XXCoder> nah just saw a chance to use my old user command I made to kinda mock one guy that kept asking about lathe constantly
[01:25:11] <PetefromTn_> I must have missed something LOL
[01:25:44] <XXCoder> asked for advice for one or 2 lathes everyday
[01:25:49] <XXCoder> sometimes more

[01:25:58] <PetefromTn_> Running the Cinci today a good bit....
[01:26:01] <XXCoder> its always too large or exensive or crappy
[01:26:39] <PetefromTn_> Right now working on a fixture for a project and it is a bit larger than I am used to.
[01:28:09] <XXCoder> hows it running so far
[01:28:37] <PetefromTn_> meh okay... I am still kinda working on the cam part LOL..
[01:28:48] <XXCoder> lol ok
[01:29:30] <PetefromTn_> Got the plate faced off and my offsets picked up. Drilled and tapped some holes for hold downs. Working on the code for the first part.

[01:32:33] <PetefromTn_> I really need to either buy or build a nice table mounted vise stop.
[01:35:46] <XXCoder> you do have cnc, wonder if vice is makable using cnc
[01:36:08] <XXCoder> probably only part not makable is screw unless you has lathe too
[01:36:10] <PetefromTn_> don
[01:36:27] <Valen> 4th axis
[01:36:28] <PetefromTn_> alraedy have a nice kurt vise Don't need one.
[01:36:37] <PetefromTn_> already
[01:36:42] <XXCoder> lol ok
[01:36:53] <XXCoder> I do need one lol but not plan to make or buy one for qhile
[01:37:17] <PetefromTn_> save your pennies and get a kurt it is worth every thin dime...
[01:38:13] <XXCoder> whoa. waaay overkill for wood lol
[01:39:02] <PetefromTn_> don't even really need a vise for wood..
[01:39:16] <Tom_itx> tslot mounted vise stop?
[01:39:17] <XXCoder> yeah
[01:39:24] -!- alexchally [alexchally!~alexchall@2601:7:b00:c1b:1c3c:895a:dc43:d1f0] has joined #linuxcnc
[01:39:38] <PetefromTn_> yeah..
[01:39:48] <PetefromTn_> I have several different vise jaw stops already.
[01:40:10] <Tom_itx> got a tool changer?
[01:40:14] <ssi> pete: workin on water system for the laser :)
[01:40:22] <PetefromTn_> I have seen several nice designs out there.
[01:40:30] <PetefromTn_> cool man.
[01:40:35] <ssi> tube came today
[01:40:36] <XXCoder> water system? to keep stock cool?
[01:40:39] <Tom_itx> use it with a 1/2" dowelpin to come down where the material will locate
[01:40:41] <PetefromTn_> you are really making progress on that monster.
[01:40:42] <ssi> to keep the tube cool
[01:40:43] <Tom_itx> we did that all the time
[01:40:47] <ssi> yeah... I've been busting ass on it
[01:40:49] <Tom_itx> no need for a stop then
[01:41:04] <Tom_itx> quite repeatable too
[01:41:05] <XXCoder> ahh laser tube cooler
[01:41:09] <XXCoder> co2 eh
[01:41:16] <PetefromTn_> yeah I HAVE a toolchanger LOL but it is just not currently operational due to my inability to get shit done
[01:41:17] <XXCoder> yeah recall you saying so lol
[01:41:34] <XXCoder> *to ssi
[01:41:37] <Tom_itx> still doable
[01:41:39] <ssi> hehe
[01:41:44] <Tom_itx> just fit a holder with a dowel pin
[01:41:57] <PetefromTn_> already have one actually..
[01:42:14] <Tom_itx> just make it part of the program with an OP stop
[01:42:19] <PetefromTn_> It has a point on it and I use it to generally locate shit that is not terribly important LOL.
[01:42:30] -!- h_maximilian has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[01:42:50] <Tom_itx> no need to worry if the stop slipped then
[01:43:00] <Tom_itx> if it does, you got much bigger problems
[01:43:00] <PetefromTn_> This is really just for fixture location.
[01:44:07] <Tom_itx> good fixture plate will do that
[01:44:26] <Tom_itx> reamed for dowels on one grid and drilled and tapped on an ajacent grid
[01:44:41] <PetefromTn_> I must admit that they had a nice one at the shop I worked in and I used it quite a bit for many different projects.
[01:45:29] <PetefromTn_> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Heavy-Duty-Table-Mounted-Mill-Vise-Work-Stop-made-in-the-USA-/110492587615 Like this only shop built..
[01:46:57] <Tom_itx> we threw those together with bits of scrap and allthread
[01:47:24] <PetefromTn_> yup LOL... simple as shit..
[01:47:28] <os1r1s> PetefromTn_: Have you seen any open designs for the 5 axis type?
[01:47:31] <PetefromTn_> Just gotta find time to make one..
[01:47:45] <PetefromTn_> not sure what you mean>?
[01:48:32] <os1r1s> PetefromTn_: http://www.roviproducts.com/Mill_Stop.htm
[01:49:14] <PetefromTn_> that looks juicy man... Kinda made me have a stiffie LOL
[01:49:26] <Tom_itx> looks a bit flimsy to me
[01:49:28] <os1r1s> haha
[01:49:31] <PetefromTn_> Don't feel like a hundred to me tho..
[01:50:07] <Tom_itx> not sure i'd admit to spending money on it personally
[01:50:12] <os1r1s> PetefromTn_: Another one ... http://www.micro-machine-shop.com/5-axis_milling_stop_a.jpg
[01:50:32] <PetefromTn_> I have actually seen that one a lot.
[01:50:46] <PetefromTn_> Never used or handled one so who knows if it is a piece of shit or not..
[01:50:49] <XXCoder> hm so stopkeeps peice from moving towards that side?
[01:51:09] <Tom_itx> it's what you locate your material against
[01:51:10] <PetefromTn_> I don't much like the small footprint on the table.
[01:51:12] <Tom_itx> when loading it
[01:51:16] <XXCoder> ahh
[01:51:34] <Tom_itx> like i said.. a dowel pin in a collet will do nice
[01:51:36] <XXCoder> was thinking wtf wouldnt vice be enough to hold on in first place lol
[01:51:38] <PetefromTn_> it just need to be rigid enough to locate the part under hand pressure.
[01:52:26] <PetefromTn_> you basically slide the part atop the vise parallels and make it contact that pin and then lock down the vise. It does nothing to keep it located that is the vises job.
[01:52:40] <XXCoder> yeah figured it by now lol
[01:52:52] <Tom_itx> they often get in the way of the cutter too
[01:52:55] <PetefromTn_> just tryin to help LOL
[01:53:06] <Tom_itx> another plus for the dowel pin approach
[01:53:32] <PetefromTn_> That five axis one could be angled down but yeah you are right especially for facing ops.
[01:53:33] <Tom_itx> there when you need it and gone when you don't
[01:54:06] <os1r1s> Tom_itx: Scrolling back to read your approach ...
[01:54:08] <Tom_itx> if you move it during milling it defeats the purpose of having it
[01:54:21] <Tom_itx> os1r1s, just a dowel pin in a tool holder
[01:54:31] <Tom_itx> make it part of the program
[01:54:35] <Tom_itx> with an OP stop
[01:55:07] -!- Servos4ever has quit [Quit: ChatZilla [SeaMonkey 2.26.1/20140612173529]]
[01:55:18] <os1r1s> Tom_itx: To indicate the part location in X/Y/Z? Do you use a wire conection with a G31?
[01:55:30] <Tom_itx> we always designated it tool 16 or 20 so it was high enough to not interfere with other tools
[01:55:35] <PetefromTn_> no wires just a mechanical stop
[01:55:37] <Tom_itx> and the programmer would know where it was
[01:56:08] <Tom_itx> os1r1s, no it just comes down and stops to give you a location point for the material
[01:56:24] <os1r1s> Ahh, ok
[01:56:26] <Tom_itx> then you push cycle start again and it carries on with the rest of the code
[01:56:35] <Tom_itx> and it's gone and out of your way
[01:56:57] <PetefromTn_> Yeah we used that approach a bunch of times in the shop too..works well.
[01:57:22] <Tom_itx> shortens setup time too
[01:57:36] <Tom_itx> one less thing to bolt to the table
[01:57:39] <Tom_itx> and adjust
[01:58:38] <Tom_itx> even when setups changed, nearly every machine in the shop had a holder with a dowel pin in the carousel
[01:58:48] <PetefromTn_> so did you mostly setup the stop tool after doing the initial setup in the machine and then take the postion to the cam or just make your adjustments in Cad cam beforehand?
[01:58:56] <Tom_itx> and it was constant so the programmer knew which tool to program
[01:59:42] <Tom_itx> draw the part in cad cam and send it to the operator. all he knew is that it was gonna be another tool
[02:00:00] <ssi> cooling s ystem is running
[02:00:02] <Tom_itx> set X0 off the part edge and Y0 off the back vise jaw
[02:00:05] <Tom_itx> generally
[02:00:17] <ssi> I wonder if the thing will fire with the potentiometer all the way down
[02:00:20] <ssi> ie wired to gnd
[02:00:25] <ssi> I don't really want to wire in a pot to test fire
[02:00:40] <ssi> also I meant to get some acrylic safety glasses at home depot and i forgot completely :'(
[02:00:44] <Tom_itx> i have a WORD template i used to print the tooling and fixture locations for the operators
[02:00:48] -!- jfigie has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
[02:00:56] <Tom_itx> and any general instructions
[02:01:07] <XXCoder> oh talking about safety glasses.. any no glare for em?
[02:01:13] <Tom_itx> they would be filed with the part prints
[02:01:16] <ssi> XXCoder: wat?
[02:01:39] <XXCoder> anti-glare
[02:02:24] <ssi> I don't know what you're asking
[02:02:30] <ssi> can you restate your question in the form of a question?
[02:02:38] <PetefromTn_> hehe
[02:02:48] <XXCoder> is there any anti-glare chemical for safety googles or something
[02:03:03] <ssi> I don't know
[02:03:52] <XXCoder> darn ok. place I work at is nice and bright, but googles refexct lights pretty often :P
[02:04:51] <Tom_itx> so get some tinted safety glasses
[02:05:03] <XXCoder> no thanjks lol
[02:05:53] <Tom_itx> anything you would spray on them would probably compromise their safety
[02:06:35] <XXCoder> yeah unfortunate. guess best bet is safety rated glasses
[02:06:41] <Tom_itx> then all you'd have would be a dorky pair of goggles
[02:07:02] <ssi> safety is boring
[02:07:04] <jdh> my Rx safety glasses have anti-glare
[02:07:20] <Tom_itx> ssi, not if you value your eyes
[02:07:23] <Tom_itx> etc
[02:09:06] <Tom_itx> the place i used to work gave us perscription safety glasses
[02:12:10] <Tom_itx> PetefromTn_, alot of times i would include the vise in the cad drawings
[02:12:25] <Tom_itx> i had one drawn up i could just drop in the drawing on a layer
[02:12:44] <Tom_itx> also the material block...
[02:12:51] <PetefromTn_> what did you setup the Z offset for?
[02:13:00] <XXCoder> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlbH3snE5hA
[02:13:33] <Tom_itx> most of the time it would be either 3 or 6" above the base of the material depending on the part and how thick the material
[02:13:45] <Tom_itx> using a 123 block
[02:13:51] <Tom_itx> to set the tools
[02:14:09] <PetefromTn_> for the fixture location?
[02:14:21] <Tom_itx> for the material z location
[02:14:25] <Tom_itx> for safety
[02:14:40] <PetefromTn_> yeah that is what I do basically but not atop the part.
[02:14:42] <Tom_itx> then if you told the machine to go to Z0 it would clear the material and any clamps
[02:15:14] <Tom_itx> we would never set Z0 at the material top
[02:15:23] <PetefromTn_> I am wanting to use this to locate the fixture just in the odd chance the guy I am making this for sells a bazillion and I become a closet millionaire making them in my garage..
[02:15:50] <Tom_itx> just make a nice aluminum plate with grids in it
[02:15:59] <Tom_itx> i even made one for my cheap little sherline
[02:16:32] <Tom_itx> if you do it right your vise will fit right on it and be square when you bolt it down
[02:16:50] <Tom_itx> we always indicated them just to be sure
[02:17:02] <Tom_itx> and seldom had to move them much at all
[02:18:12] <PetefromTn_> meh I don't really want vise mounted to plates. This is actually a vise mounted fixture..
[02:18:36] <Tom_itx> use softjaws for it then
[02:19:49] <Tom_itx> notice in this one (hard to see the vise) i have the vise and material block shown for the operator: http://tom-itx.ddns01.com:81/~webpage/cnc/P3.jpg
[02:20:05] <PetefromTn_> naah I would like to use the fixed jaws and parallels and some kinda fixture location this is probably NOT gonna be a massive number of parts but ya never know LOL.
[02:20:25] <Tom_itx> it just depends on the part
[02:20:34] <Tom_itx> as to how you hold it most efficiently
[02:22:15] <PetefromTn_> this is mostly just a large plate with a recatangular pocket out of the middle not thru cut and some holes tapped with an outside profile in 1/2 inch material really simple but I MAY have to make a bunch more possible.
[02:23:24] <Tom_itx> sounds like some step softjaws and a dowelpin is all you need for that
[02:23:42] <Tom_itx> or parallels i suppose
[02:23:51] <PetefromTn_> yeah don't even need the step jaws really..
[02:24:07] <Tom_itx> i'd sticky tape the parallels to the vise jaws
[02:24:30] <PetefromTn_> ?
[02:24:51] <Tom_itx> they won't move around on you when you swap parts
[02:25:35] <Tom_itx> double back tape
[02:26:25] <PetefromTn_> huh might try that. Got some carpet tape here.
[02:26:37] <Tom_itx> will you need to profile the blocks or are they to size to begin with?
[02:27:20] <PetefromTn_> no need to do a go around and finish pass of the profile...
[02:27:39] <Tom_itx> then step jaws are out
[02:28:02] <Tom_itx> unless i read that wrong
[02:28:24] <PetefromTn_> yeah that Is why I am making the fixture... Clamp it down to the fixture, drill holes, bolt it down and then finish machining.
[02:28:28] <Tom_itx> i read that as no, need to ....
[02:28:58] <PetefromTn_> It is about 13.5x8 inches and a funky outside shape.
[02:29:27] <Tom_itx> sounds like a work plate would work well for that
[02:29:53] <Tom_itx> 2 dowels in the back to locate it in y, pull them out once clamped
[02:30:13] <PetefromTn_> the interesting thing is the part is made from two different half inch plates both different but they share four holes so the fixture is working good I think.
[02:30:29] -!- XXCoder has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
[02:30:32] <Tom_itx> use the dowel in the tool holder for X
[02:31:04] <PetefromTn_> yup
[02:31:26] <Tom_itx> pre drill/tap those hole locations in the expendable plate
[02:31:36] <PetefromTn_> actually the plate along the x is not that important. Gonna be sawn off and just fit to the fixture.
[02:32:10] <Tom_itx> fixturing is an art
[02:32:11] <PetefromTn_> clamp to the fixture, drill four holes and screw it down then finish machine.

[02:51:35] <zeeshan> cheapo wire rack
[02:52:03] <zeeshan> was getting tired of digging through boxes
[02:52:06] <zeeshan> to find spools of wire
[02:52:07] <Valen> nice
[02:54:28] <Connor> So, question about Coolant nozzles .. Which side.. or both sides.. and if both sides.. would they not cancel each other out to some degree ?
[02:54:51] <XXCoder> from inside
[02:55:14] <XXCoder> was joking but I think there IS some tools that do that? lathe mainly
[02:55:18] <PetefromTn_> My Cincinatti has one pointing to the back of the machine and one pointing from the right side to the left and with lots of flow chips are not a problem.
[02:55:41] <Connor> PetefromTn_: Yea.. I know how your setup is. :) ROFL
[02:55:50] <PetefromTn_> well you asked...
[02:55:59] <Connor> Yea.. I was asking about other setups..
[02:56:16] <PetefromTn_> but you did not specify that...LOL
[02:56:35] <Connor> Saw a setup for servo controlled nozzle. He had one on each side.
[02:56:39] <zeeshan> hi XXCoder
[02:56:44] <XXCoder> yo
[02:57:01] <Connor> Looks easy enough to do..
[02:57:03] <PetefromTn_> Haas machines have controllable coolant nozzles from one side.. they work decent.
[02:57:04] <zeeshan> er

[02:57:10] <zeeshan> talking about that? :D
[02:57:21] <zeeshan> http://www.sandvik.coromant.com/SiteCollectionImages/News/12_2/HPC.jpg
[02:57:24] <zeeshan> theres that fancy one too
[02:57:25] <XXCoder> oh yeah. yeah
[02:58:42] <zeeshan> i wonder how they make those spiral holes
[02:58:48] <Connor> Still too much to do and not enough Ummph to do it..
[02:59:32] <XXCoder> zee dunno. molded into rod pre-cut?
[02:59:40] <PetefromTn_> My cincinatti actually could be ordered with coolant thru spindle but mine does not have it.
[02:59:51] <PetefromTn_> UNFORTUNATELY
[02:59:54] <Connor> By the end of the day.. I don't feel like doing much.. and weekends are recharge time.
[03:00:04] <zeeshan> XXCoder: yea i think casting might be how they do it
[03:01:16] <Connor> I think I'm going to order Ball Screws with double nuts soon.
[03:02:03] <Connor> I need to get my backlash figured out and go ahead and start milling out the ball nut mounts.
[03:02:06] <XXCoder> ball screwing with double nuts :P
[03:03:57] -!- AR_ has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
[03:05:31] <Connor> The Saddle will need some milling done to it.. and would like to go ahead and get oil groves cut and holes drilled/tapped too.
[03:06:24] <Tom_itx> Connor, coolant nozzles with valves to adjust output
[03:06:58] <PetefromTn_> I used my RF31 to machine all the slots and holes in my RF45
[03:06:58] <Tom_itx> those 'snakes' work pretty good
[03:07:38] <zeeshan> connor saddle needs to be machined
[03:07:40] <zeeshan> to fit double nutrs?
[03:07:52] <zeeshan> if it was a single nut, would it still need to be machined?
[03:08:43] <Connor> zeeshan: Yes.
[03:08:58] <Connor> Have to make a pocket for the nut to sit in.
[03:09:02] <zeeshan> ah
[03:09:08] <Connor> for the table.
[03:09:55] <Connor> the Y, Needs to have have to base opened up to get extended travel for single nut, or slightly more travel that stock with double.
[03:10:04] <PetefromTn_> You know what I am gonna say right... bring it by if you want..

[03:10:25] <Connor> PetefromTn_: Yup. I plan on it. I need to send you the plans so you can see what we're going to be doing.
[03:11:11] <PetefromTn_> okee..
[03:11:13] <Connor> but, before I can do any of it.. I have to clean up my shop.. then tear it down.
[03:12:01] <Connor> saddle will be easy enough.. it's the base of the mill.. I have to remove the column from it..
[03:12:19] <Connor> which means removing the spindle head..
[03:12:23] <Connor> ugg..
[03:12:36] <PetefromTn_> yeah but it only weighs like 2 lbs right hehehe
[03:13:59] -!- tjtr33 [tjtr33!~tjtr33@76-216-190-185.lightspeed.cicril.sbcglobal.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[03:14:03] <Connor> Umm. No. a wee bit more than that.. I just hope I don't throw my back out trying to take it all apart.
[03:14:25] <Connor> I've never had the column off of it before.. I really don't like the idea of trying to tram it in.
[03:14:52] <Connor> bad enough tramming in the spindle..
[03:14:57] <zeeshan> why
[03:15:01] <zeeshan> it take slike 10 min
[03:15:09] <zeeshan> er nm
[03:15:15] <zeeshan> i dont know your machine :P
[03:16:17] <Connor> Tramming the head is a bit easier with my tramming aids.. but.. I've never done the column.. not sure how to do it.
[03:16:26] <zeeshan> all i see is a way to tilt the spindle about the y axis
[03:16:31] -!- Roguish has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[03:16:35] <zeeshan> is there way to tilt it about the x axis?
[03:16:39] <zeeshan> (aka knod)
[03:16:44] <Connor> zeeshan: Shims.
[03:16:50] <zeeshan> ;/
[03:17:00] <Connor> for the X axis.
[03:17:12] <zeeshan> yea shimming can get annoying :p
[03:17:37] <Connor> column shimming for X too.. Y is just adjusting the column before locking down the bolts..
[03:18:25] <PetefromTn_> much as I am LOATHE to say it Hoss had a nice video showing a good way to do that..
[03:18:45] <Connor> PetefromTn_: Yea. Rolliedads method
[03:18:55] <PetefromTn_> yeah something like that.
[03:19:04] <zeeshan> i thought the generic method was to put 2 parallels
[03:19:11] <zeeshan> through in a test indicator
[03:19:36] <zeeshan> do the y rotation first
[03:19:39] <zeeshan> then do knod after
[03:20:03] <zeeshan> y rotation you just move the x axis side to side
[03:20:08] <zeeshan> and check for error
[03:20:19] <zeeshan> knod, you just raise/lower the table
[03:22:03] <Connor> Looks like I need a precession dowel rod.
[03:22:11] <zeeshan> no
[03:22:22] <PetefromTn_> I have a large sleeve here that I used for that.
[03:22:30] <zeeshan> you can do it with just parallels
[03:22:33] <zeeshan> mrpete shows how to do it
[03:22:35] <PetefromTn_> it is fround completely..
[03:22:50] <PetefromTn_> ground.
[03:23:20] <zeeshan> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkVXJp61zLg
[03:23:24] <zeeshan> thats a good video
[03:23:36] <ssi> laser has been test fired :D
[03:23:38] <zeeshan> i bet you already have the tools to do it
[03:24:21] <Connor> zeeshan: First thing you have to do is tram the had to the COLUMN.
[03:24:30] <Connor> then tram the head + column to the table.
[03:24:43] <Connor> I have the tool to tram head or head+column to the table..
[03:24:46] <PetefromTn_> yup
[03:24:56] <Connor> it's tramming the head TO the column that is important.
[03:24:57] <zeeshan> i dont have a column!
[03:24:58] <zeeshan> :P

[10:28:31] <jdh> I use Cut2D all the time. Never had it make a .tap file
[10:29:12] <DaViruz> cut2d makes a .tap if you set the postprocessor to just gcode
[10:29:25] <DaViruz> if you set it to emc2 it makes a .ngc
[10:29:37] <jdh> much easier than changing axis
[10:29:41] <archivist> even easier!
[10:30:05] <DaViruz> though i believe you need cut2d 1.5 to get the emc2 post
[10:30:52] <jdh> I used it with 1.0. Had to download it though
[10:33:01] <DaViruz> oh
[10:33:49] <pingufan> But don't I need the whole sources of AXIS to change that?

[10:34:52] <jdh> you have it, but you don't need to change it.

[10:35:25] <jdh> or use the same one you are using now, but when it prompts you for the file name, put in .ngc instead of .tap
[10:36:09] <jdh> it's not like cut2d makes the file without your assistance. You hit 'save' on the .tap file every time.
[10:38:28] <DaViruz> it's pretty simple to modifiy the cut2d post processors too, just open one in a text editor and among the first lines are FILE_EXTENSION = "tap"
[10:39:34] <pingufan> Oh, thank you!
[10:41:23] <jdh> PROGRAM_EXTENSION = .TAP Cut2D files with wrong post
[10:41:28] <jdh> or add that to your .ini file
[10:42:06] <jdh> maybe. Using the emc2 post in cut2d would be better.

[11:32:27] <archivist> heh that is a short one with not enough metal for hard work
[11:32:38] <mutilator> yea
[11:32:44] <mutilator> i'm looking to hold small objects
[11:32:59] <archivist> define small :)
[11:33:00] <mutilator> easier to vice it in than to clamp down
[11:33:42] <mutilator> um
[11:33:53] <mutilator> 1.5x0.5"
[11:34:21] <jthornton> that is a crummy vise and barely good for a drill press... wanna know how I know?
[11:34:35] <archivist> ah big :) I often make stuff on the end of a stick http://gears.archivist.info/gears/IMG_1214_hires.JPG
[11:34:45] <mutilator> i wasnt asking if it was a good vise
[11:35:31] <mutilator> thats tiny not small
[11:36:22] <archivist> also for plate work I clamp down a sheet
[11:36:39] <archivist> or mount on a pillar

[11:58:28] * jthornton hears an echo
[11:59:17] <Tom_itx> was reading scrollback when i posted that and didn't realize i did it since the first one didn't appear on my screen :)
[12:00:14] <Tom_itx> either that or it's just the hills around you
[12:03:05] <jdh> pingufan: that's pretty lame.
[12:03:37] <Tom_itx> how so?
[12:03:49] <Tom_itx> i'd never heard of .ngc files until i saw linuxcnc
[12:03:52] <jdh> but, use the correct post and life is better anyway. There were/are 4 choices for EMC2. metric/imperial and arcs or segments
[12:03:59] <Tom_itx> we always used .txt extensions :)
[12:04:19] <jdh> <pingufan> jdh: If I enter .ngc as filename in Cut2D, it makes a ".ngc.tap"
[12:04:43] <Tom_itx> so it want's to default to .tap extension...
[12:05:06] <jdh> yeah, if you type in foo.ngc though it should (IMO) leave you alone.
[12:05:12] <Tom_itx> i'm sure the author had some brilliant reasoning
[12:05:46] <jthornton> OneCNC is just as annoying if you type in foo.ngc it changes it to foo.NGC
[12:05:55] <jdh> I think it is a commondialog thing. Notepad adds a .txt if you leave it on 'text files' when saving vs. 'all files'
[12:07:32] <Tom_itx> jthornton, does it take long filenames or 8.3 like dos did?
[12:07:44] <Tom_itx> that's likely a dos leftover
[12:07:56] <Tom_itx> it would default to upper case too iirc
[12:08:06] <jthornton> it uses long file names
[12:08:24] <jthornton> it's just a programmer error
[12:08:52] <jthornton> if I click on foo.ngc to save an edit it does not change the extension
[12:09:09] <Tom_itx> odd
[12:09:41] <jthornton> they are from Australia...

[17:14:21] <IchGuckLive> then you are to blame as you are constructor
[17:14:32] <PetefromTn_> but of course I am....jeez
[17:14:58] <IchGuckLive> i show and hammer it to all the students construct as yoiu will build it
[17:14:59] <PetefromTn_> now I gotta fix it without radically changing the damn model to make it work correctly.
[17:15:02] <Connor> PetefromTn_: What did you do ?
[17:15:14] <IchGuckLive> a 20mm pin does not fit a 10mm hole
[17:15:16] <CaptHindsight> customers most often ask for solutions to the corner they have painted themselves into
[17:15:27] <PetefromTn_> I am working on a custom car part for those RX7 dudes...
[17:15:37] <IchGuckLive> even worse a 10mm pin does not work in 20mm hole
[17:15:46] <PetefromTn_> I did a nice cool looking 3d model of what I want to build for them and sold the job.
[17:15:53] <archivist> upgrade so it works charge more and make it for less...profit
[17:16:13] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: ny customers would have that problem but insist that it has to work with that size difference
[17:16:14] <PetefromTn_> Now when I got home I was going over it and realized the part it holds will not fit correctly with the larger standoffs I decided to jazz it up with..
[17:16:47] <PetefromTn_> Adding more BEEF to it screwed the pooch...LOL
[17:16:49] <Connor> PetefromTn_: Well.. re-design it and let'm know. It happens.
[17:17:05] <IchGuckLive> cars can be reconfigurt its only thin steel
[17:17:20] <IchGuckLive> a simple grinder will give you lots of space
[17:17:25] <PetefromTn_> It is no big deal really I just need to widen the frame just a tad bit and there is ample room on the sides for that. Just not the front so the placement of the standoffs will be different.
[17:17:50] <Connor> They probably won't notice..
[17:18:00] <Connor> unless they have the 3D model in front of them.
[17:18:05] <PetefromTn_> Honestly I THINK the subtle changes I need to make here will not even be noticeable. They approved the drawing just looking at it and I never left them a copy so it is no big deal

[17:18:28] <IchGuckLive> PetefromTn_: call to needs to be adjust at mounting
[17:18:41] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: to be more accurate one would be a round 10mm hole and the other a 10mm square peg :)

[17:19:06] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: as you say
[17:19:53] <ssi> so... my 400 step motors should be here today; I guess I should swap them before I get too deep into getting motion calibrated
[17:19:56] -!- karavanjo_ has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[17:19:58] <PetefromTn_> It has four posts and they will just be spaced outward along the X axis about 1/16" and the bottom two will be moved outward a tad on one side. Will still look basically the same but slightly different.
[17:20:12] <Connor> ssi 400 step motors ?
[17:20:14] <ssi> yes
[17:20:30] <Connor> Wow.. that's pretty odd.
[17:20:31] <PetefromTn_> 400 Oz in?
[17:20:35] <ssi> no, 400 step
[17:20:35] <Connor> where did you find them ?
[17:20:37] <ssi> 0.9 degree

[17:20:59] <PetefromTn_> hopefully you will not be having any sparkling fun when you power it up LOL
[17:21:20] <Connor> ssi What it for ?
[17:21:23] <ssi> the laser
[17:21:26] <Connor> Ah.
[17:21:30] <Connor> Belt Driven ?
[17:21:33] <ssi> yeah
[17:21:42] <ssi> I'm hoping to avoid having to build belt reductions
[17:21:44] <ssi> but I might s till
[17:21:45] <Connor> any gear reduction? or 1:1
[17:21:53] <PetefromTn_> He's like freakin' Buck Rodgers down there playin' with lasers and stuff...LOL
[17:21:55] <IchGuckLive> ssi: dont you gotr room for a cheep timingbelt gearing
[17:22:06] <ssi> yeah, I could make it work
[17:22:08] <ssi> but it'll be tight
[17:22:19] <ssi> especially on the gantry car, because of the way the cable chain lays directly over the motor
[17:22:29] <IchGuckLive> laser can work at high speed engraving
[17:22:41] <ssi> yeah I'm just worried about the precision
[17:22:56] <ssi> with 200 step motors, I'm at 0.008" per full step
[17:23:00] <ssi> the 400 step motors'll halve that
[17:23:05] <IchGuckLive> and you need only a tick on the extended axis not the working its continues
[17:23:47] <IchGuckLive> drivers as simple as they are can make half stepping
[17:23:55] <IchGuckLive> and give you better speed
[17:24:27] <ssi> I think speed isn't going to be a problem
[17:24:31] <IchGuckLive> ok its your design go for it
[17:24:50] <ssi> well I mean at 1.6" per rev

[17:24:55] <ssi> it should be easy to make the thing move very fast
[17:25:15] <ssi> CaptHindsight: neat
[17:25:21] <ssi> I wish geared steppers weren't so much money
[17:25:47] <IchGuckLive> therefore hobbiest jump to 10USD tiingbelt gears

[17:26:12] <IchGuckLive> US use XL 5.08mm
[17:26:14] <ssi> it's not the cost of the gears that matters, it's the cost of the time of fabricating the reductions, and the space constraint
[17:26:17] <IchGuckLive> EU uses T5
[17:26:18] <CaptHindsight> ^^ those are not geared btw
[17:26:23] <ssi> yeah I know
[17:26:37] <Connor> geared ones might introduce backlash.
[17:26:44] <ssi> true

[17:26:59] <IchGuckLive> not at 120deg Rotation clamp angel
[17:27:18] <ssi> anyway I think I'm gonna run the 400 step motors with a fairly high microstepping for now and see how it does
[17:27:22] <ssi> chances are it'll be fine
[17:27:28] <IchGuckLive> forgot backlash to timingbelt T V shape
[17:27:52] <ssi> timing belt doesn't really lash, but connor is talking about steppers with gearboxes, and they likely do have some lash
[17:28:22] <IchGuckLive> if you go to highend i agree but the backlash is pricise
[17:28:28] <Connor> Unless they're harmonic gear boxes.. then your really spending $$$
[17:28:33] <ssi> yeah
[17:28:38] <IchGuckLive> let me show a example
[17:28:43] <ssi> I'd much rather put my money into a higher power tube :)
[17:28:53] <CaptHindsight> planetary geared or harmonic?
[17:29:27] <IchGuckLive> i use this worms in my systems

[17:30:01] <IchGuckLive> but as ypou may need to trust mee
[17:30:10] <IchGuckLive> all and i got 50 in use
[17:30:14] <CaptHindsight> 120 Euro for the gearbox?
[17:30:21] <ssi> yeah I'm sure those work well
[17:30:22] <IchGuckLive> from 7,5 to 90 I
[17:30:26] <ssi> but they're also WAY too big for what I'm doing
[17:30:26] <CaptHindsight> thats not bad
[17:30:38] <IchGuckLive> got the same 0.130 backlash
[17:30:48] <IchGuckLive> i dident beleve it
[17:31:07] <IchGuckLive> as i got gantrys at that
[17:31:39] <IchGuckLive> with geraring at both different order times
[17:32:00] <IchGuckLive> all realy all the systems i ordert got the same backlash
[17:32:18] <IchGuckLive> so its the internal system fault
[17:32:26] <IchGuckLive> just a giuess
[17:32:52] <IchGuckLive> ssi only a information example
[17:33:01] <ssi> yeah
[17:33:26] <IchGuckLive> so 4:1 is at 130deg min timingbelt access
[17:33:58] <IchGuckLive> and as you got 6 teeth in working force no backlash can be produced
[17:34:16] <ssi> yeah if i need to, I'll build something similar to this:

[17:39:38] <ssi> :)
[17:39:46] <ssi> your english is better than my german
[17:39:56] <IchGuckLive> you need to get a floating control part that gets you green light on floting water
[17:40:03] <ssi> yeah, that's a good idea
[17:40:10] <IchGuckLive> its a simple part from plumbing
[17:40:13] <ssi> the power supply has a water interlock

[17:40:29] <IchGuckLive> 30sec without cooling might kill your system
[17:40:55] <ssi> a float won't tell me whether the water's flowing though...
[17:40:58] <IchGuckLive> PetefromTn_: now we know how started the wildfire tonight
[17:41:03] <ssi> I have a flow sensor on hand, should I employ it?
[17:41:04] <PetefromTn_> I could see that with some meathead doing a CNC laser...not referring to you SSI LOL
[17:41:26] <ssi> PetefromTn_: I found some stuff on forums while i was looking for wiring information, and several people talked about having to patch holes in their walls :)
[17:41:31] <IchGuckLive> ssi yes on the laserout not in

[17:45:22] <ssi> I just need to figure out what to use as a source for the air
[17:45:23] <IchGuckLive> is it pointed on maybe 1mm
[17:46:05] <IchGuckLive> the airflow needede depends on material thickness

[17:46:47] <IchGuckLive> not enove to get lexan meltdown stop

[18:03:50] <IchGuckLive> i use them offen
[18:03:52] <ssi> that's actually two different supplies
[18:04:03] <ssi> IchGuckLive: yeah I've seen them but I needed them on sunday so I couldn't afford to wait
[18:04:04] <PetefromTn_> cute..
[18:04:34] <PetefromTn_> just enough to set your neighbor's house on fire from your garage...DIABOLICAL!
[18:04:41] <ssi> those supplies and the computer come on with the main power
[18:04:42] <IchGuckLive> ssi they are great for my nin mashines
[18:04:48] <ssi> all the other supplies come on by relay
[18:04:50] <CaptHindsight> IchGuckLive: ok, so ~200km, that's like 10 minutes on the autobahn :)
[18:04:57] <cpresser> with great supplies comes great power
[18:05:01] <ssi> cpresser: :)
[18:05:26] <ssi> turns out the laser psu can supply 24v and 5v, but in order to use those I'd have to have the laser psu come on with the main switch
[18:05:33] <ssi> and I really prefer to have it under software control for estop purposes
[18:05:34] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: woudt be grweat nearly 2,5hr
[18:06:14] <PetefromTn_> Estop means NO software to me man...
[18:06:39] <IchGuckLive> ssi i use a 24V seperat to get the 5i25 supplyed and from thre start all other
[18:06:52] <IchGuckLive> so relai emergency on all parts
[18:06:53] <ssi> yeah that's basically what I'm doing
[18:07:04] <ssi> I added a 5V supply for the 5v side of the 7i76 as well, because my relays are 5v coil
[18:07:09] <PetefromTn_> Estop means....OH SHIT I just burned down the neighbor's house and set their dog on fire so it has to be off RIGHT NOW!!
[18:07:14] <ssi> PetefromTn_: yep
[18:07:27] <IchGuckLive> F1 starts all the power in the cabinet
[18:07:32] <IchGuckLive> F2 enables the drives
[18:07:48] <IchGuckLive> so i got 2 chances for a emergency
[18:07:50] <ssi> IchGuckLive: yeah that's what I'm going for too, although I dunno if I want to have the laser psu running with f1 or not
[18:08:09] -!- mozmck has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[18:08:13] <jdh> I don't use f1 or f2 on my mill. Just push the start button.
[18:08:13] <ssi> IchGuckLive: the leadshine drives have an enable input, and I'm not sure if I should use it or not
[18:08:20] <IchGuckLive> on worm mashines i like the main emergency to be drive enable cut
[18:08:31] <IchGuckLive> i use it
[18:08:38] -!- mozmck [mozmck!~moses@] has joined #linuxcnc
[18:08:41] <ssi> the 7i76 doesn't have dedicated enable outs on the 5v side
[18:08:46] -!- tjtr33 has quit [Read error: No route to host]
[18:08:59] <IchGuckLive> use a GPIo
[18:09:02] <ssi> and the field io side is all sourcing outs, and I'm not sure what sort of input signal the enable in on the drive is
[18:09:10] <IchGuckLive> and got a 24V relay on it
[18:09:19] <ssi> the manual says that they're enabled by default,
[18:09:29] <ssi> and I tried just shorting the ena+ to ena-, and it didn't seem to disable the drive
[18:09:32] <ssi> at least there wasn't any indication
[18:09:42] <ssi> i guess I should check if the motor goes slack
[18:09:55] <Connor> anyone know of a 1/4 NPT Right angle connector.. that can "rotate" ? a

[18:11:09] <IchGuckLive> ssi the 5V run to leadshine ena+ and the ena - runs to the relay and then to gnd
[18:11:15] <ssi> yeah got it
[18:11:18] <IchGuckLive> do F2 enables the drives
[18:11:19] <PetefromTn_> My neighbor kills me man... He and his son built this large shed with a whole bunch of work and board and batton siding. Looked pretty good and they even put some windown and doors in it.
[18:11:33] <ssi> and i can use the NC side of the relay to make them active high
[18:11:39] <PetefromTn_> Then they got it ready with trusses and ready to put the roof on.
[18:11:51] <PetefromTn_> Only they never finished the roof and that was like three years ago.
[18:11:52] <ssi> IchGuckLive: did you see my relay card hackery?
[18:12:04] <ssi> PetefromTn_: so now the whole thing is rot?
[18:12:08] <PetefromTn_> So it is not rotting away in the weather and looks like fido's ass..
[18:12:22] <ssi> CaptHindsight: you might be interested in this too
[18:12:23] <PetefromTn_> yup.
[18:12:44] <ssi> those cheapy sainsmart relay cards are active low, and they won't work with 7i76 sourcing outputs
[18:12:51] <IchGuckLive> ssi
[18:12:53] <IchGuckLive> net joy-mashine-off or2.2.in0 <= input.0.btn-tl
[18:12:55] <IchGuckLive> net mash-estop-but or2.2.in1 <= hm2_5i25.0.7i76.0.0.input-00-not
[18:12:56] <IchGuckLive> net maschinehaloff or2.2.out => halui.machine.off
[18:12:58] <PetefromTn_> its just a building with open trusses and no roof
[18:13:06] <ssi> so I hacked them up to make them active high
[18:13:07] <ssi> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BtGt9k2CQAEMsyh.jpg:large
[18:13:14] <ssi> ugly, but functional
[18:13:19] <PetefromTn_> and now it is a smoldering pile of cow dung.
[18:13:24] <ssi> also changed the resistors out so they can run comfortably on 12v signals
[18:13:29] <ssi> though the coils still take 5v
[18:14:13] <ssi> there are 12v versions of this board out there; I ordered a few, but they're still active low
[18:14:30] <PetefromTn_> I got lucky with the relays in the Cinci.. It has a large bank of relays in a block and I was able to reuse them. Works well.
[18:14:44] <ssi> in order to convert them, the indicator leds need to be rotated 180 to swap polarity, and pins 1 and 2 on the opto need to be swapped to reverse polarity
[18:15:01] <ssi> and then the control header gets fed gnd on the VCC pin, and +12v on a signal pin to activate
[18:15:45] <ssi> PetefromTn_: these little cheapy relay cards actually are great for what they are... if they were active high out of the box they'd be perfect
[18:15:49] <ssi> but they're like $7 apiece
[18:15:53] <ssi> for 8 channels of relays

[18:17:06] <Connor> says for air.. you think that would work for coolant ?
[18:17:44] <IchGuckLive> ssi: http://foengarage.de/mesa_elek.jpg
[18:17:58] <IchGuckLive> right of the 7i76 the 2 relays
[18:17:58] <Connor> jdh: Your thoughts ?
[18:18:14] <ssi> IchGuckLive: ya
[18:18:28] <IchGuckLive> ssi and right of the leadshine the yelow one is the main cut off
[18:18:47] <ssi> latching contactor?
[18:19:00] <IchGuckLive> the prit telay socket combination is cheep and can host 5V 12V 24V relas
[18:19:04] <ssi> what are the three boxes to the right of the yellow one
[18:19:20] <IchGuckLive> 5V 12V 24V supply
[18:19:24] <ssi> gotcha
[18:19:35] <IchGuckLive> as i need to work 16hr + i go for sepperate
[18:19:37] <k6mle-CNC> Got the 5i25 installed, but need to have Linux recognize it ... not quite sure how that's done!
[18:19:52] <ssi> k6mle-CNC: linuxcnc will load the driver for it
[18:19:59] <ssi> k6mle-CNC: just configure your hal for it, it'll work :)
[18:20:24] <k6mle-CNC> Should I start with stepconf?
[18:20:34] <IchGuckLive> k6 are you on 2.5.4
[18:20:37] <ssi> pncconf I think you need to use
[18:20:53] <IchGuckLive> use pncconf
[18:21:05] <ssi> but I ran it yesterday and it didn't have 5i25 in it for some reason
[18:21:07] <ssi> not sure what version
[18:21:16] <IchGuckLive> and keep in mind the output on the pc back side is connector 2
[18:21:23] <k6mle-CNC> Okay ... I've not used that yet, but will give it a try.
[18:21:40] <PetefromTn_> Connor... I got a whole bunch of right angle fitting here from the RF45 build you are welcome to some if you want them. I think they are all for air but I used them for grease fittings at least the brass ones.
[18:22:09] <Connor> PetefromTn_: Idea I have to make a servo controlled coolant nozzle.
[18:22:20] <PetefromTn_> there is a firmware upgrade that works for that K6 its on the forum.
[18:22:25] <Connor> Need a right angle swivel connector 1/4npt
[18:22:50] <Connor> push-to-connect won't work.
[18:22:54] <PetefromTn_> I know the plastic ones for air pressure are swivel at least some of them are..
[18:23:04] <PetefromTn_> The plastic ones are push to connect.
[18:23:10] <PetefromTn_> the brass one I do not rememve.
[18:23:11] <Connor> Yea. that's the problem.
[18:23:13] <PetefromTn_> remember.
[18:23:21] <Connor> http://www.ebay.com/itm/AIR-ANGLE-SWIVEL-ADAPTOR-1-4-NPT-/271257540415?pt=US_Hand_Tools&hash=item3f2835973f
[18:23:24] <Connor> Might work.
[18:23:51] <PetefromTn_> they sell swivel fittings for pneumatics that are kinda nice at lowes...
[18:24:15] <PetefromTn_> I have one or two on some of my pneumo tools.
[18:25:00] <PetefromTn_> Just a piece of surgical tubing would probably swivel pretty good too... with a piece of brass stuck inside it to hold it maybe?
[18:25:15] <PetefromTn_> The HAAS programmable coolant just has a brass nozzle on it.
[18:25:23] <PetefromTn_> looks like a short piece of pipe.
[18:25:52] <PetefromTn_> I am sure they must charge 15 grand for the system tho LOL.
[18:26:03] <Connor> I want to bring the coolant in from the back... down a manifold, into the fitting..
[18:26:21] <Connor> the fitting then will be coupled with a servo.
[18:26:33] <Connor> and a "nozzle" screwed into the fitting.

[18:28:49] -!- tmcw has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[18:28:54] <automata> any suggestions?
[18:29:07] <Connor> External controller. Probably use modbus to connect it to LinuxCNC/Mach3 or whatever.
[18:29:27] <PetefromTn_> MACH3!!!! PLEASE SAY NO...
[18:29:44] -!- md-2 has quit [Read error: No route to host]
[18:29:45] <Connor> PetefromTn_: I don't care... The controller will talk modbus. :)
[18:29:45] <pcw_home> download the latest source (and you may need to add InputsPinsPerModel.vhd to the project)
[18:29:59] <PetefromTn_> the haas setup actually has positions settings in the tool table.
[18:30:19] <PetefromTn_> You set the tool length and then the coolant nozzle position and the control does the rest.
[18:30:23] <automata> ok..
[18:30:37] <Connor> Going to copy the http://www.spidercool.com/ idea..
[18:31:11] <pcw_home> you can add source to the project by right clicking in the source pane
[18:31:15] <Connor> LinuxCNC sends over modbus, the tool number.. and the controller has the setting stored.
[18:31:26] <automata> ok trying that...
[18:32:45] <PetefromTn_> that looks basically just like the haas one only it looks like a smaller package footprint.
[18:32:58] <PetefromTn_> The nozzle need some good pressure tho.
[18:33:04] <Connor> I can replicate it. :)
[18:33:13] <PetefromTn_> of course.
[18:33:21] <PetefromTn_> make me one too LOL
[18:33:34] <PetefromTn_> Altho honestly my coolant setup works fine really.
[18:33:44] <PetefromTn_> I do have to adjust the nozzles occasionally which is tedious.
[18:33:56] <Connor> Hmm.. you use 1/4 or 3/8 ?
[18:33:57] <PetefromTn_> I need the toolchanger working more than programmable coolant right now tho.
[18:34:13] <PetefromTn_> It uses Loc Line larger diameter..
[18:34:20] <PetefromTn_> I do not know the size.
[18:34:28] <Connor> Those come in different sizes too. :)
[18:34:43] <Connor> Mine is 1/4npt
[18:34:49] <Connor> which is what I'm going to go with.
[18:35:05] <PetefromTn_> The pump puts out enough volume to make the garden nozzle feel like my houses garden nozzle so that is not a problem.
[18:35:19] <PetefromTn_> yeah I know but I have not tried to measure it.
[18:35:39] <PetefromTn_> Would be a nice addition tho. Needs to be pretty coolant proof motor and wiring tho.
[18:35:50] <PetefromTn_> it gets WET in there man.
[18:36:23] <PetefromTn_> I find sprinkling of coolant even coming out the top of the machine landing on me occasionally and that is like eight feet up or more..
[18:38:31] <PetefromTn_> How is your machine working?
[18:39:15] <Connor> Haven't done much with it lately. I need to finish up those cover panels for the enclosure.. and wire up the switches so I can run the coolant

[18:52:46] <PetefromTn_> Gotta have a kitchen sink.. with no kitchen sink Momma Ain't happy....when Momma Ain't happy...well.... DADDY Ain't happy if you know what I mean.
[18:52:46] <ssi> next thing you know, you're gonna be telling me I should go to work instead of building machines
[18:52:47] <Tom_itx> boy have you been brainwashed...
[18:53:35] <PetefromTn_> Well since we have lived with shitty cabinets for a couple YEARS now with basically a makeshift counter top I figure it is about time or I may be out in the street...
[18:54:01] <PetefromTn_> Personally I like my nice warm bed and my wife's company in it LOL...
[18:54:20] <ssi> yeah, pretty much the definition of brainwashing
[18:54:36] <serp> i like the couch sometimes myself
[18:54:48] <PetefromTn_> so I have to put the other SCHTUFF on hold. Besides I have been busy making other stuff and trying to make money where I can so the encoder mount for the machine has been neglected.
[18:55:22] <PetefromTn_> I actually like the couch too but only when I KNOW I can head upstairs to my nice HUGE king sized warm bed LOL....
[18:55:31] <Tom_itx> get the tool changer working and you won't have to attend it nearly as much
[18:55:42] <Tom_itx> then you will have the free time to honey dew
[18:55:51] <ssi> why on earth do fedex and ups keep giving my packages to usps to deliver?!

[18:57:22] <ds3> SmartPost I think is one name Fedex uses
[18:57:26] <ds3> same with UPS
[18:57:38] <ssi> in one case, I asked for express shipping
[18:57:40] <ds3> you save like $1 on shipping but things get delayed by another 2-3 days
[18:57:41] <ssi> and they sent it china post
[18:57:43] <serp> PetefromTn_: well just a couple miles from teh airport.. i guess that could be said for all of alcoa though

[18:58:30] <PetefromTn_> WHAT KNOXMAKERS?
[18:58:31] <ssi> but fedex takes a week and a half to get it from california to usps, who then takes one more day to get it to me
[18:58:42] <ds3> I used to order stuff from a place that's about 400miles away - ground service is same as next day here...then they started offering "smartpost"... 2-3 days for the same delivery...just $1 or less

[19:06:42] <serp> it's kind of small still due to space issues... we've outgrown the current location.. thus the prompt to move to knoxville to a bigger place
[19:06:47] <PetefromTn_> I got a CNC machining center here man... Can I play too?
[19:06:54] <ssi> PetefromTn_: naw you're overqualified
[19:06:59] <PetefromTn_> LOL
[19:07:08] <ssi> seriously
[19:07:13] <ssi> I wanted to get involved with one here in atlanta
[19:07:20] <ssi> and they're obnoxious about it
[19:07:29] <PetefromTn_> how so do tell..
[19:07:30] <ssi> it's a bunch of fratty, culty, socialist bull
[19:07:41] <ssi> I am a one man hackerspace thank you very much
[19:07:50] <PetefromTn_> you sure as hell are sir...
[19:07:55] <JT-Shop> yea, my drill speed and feed works!
[19:08:06] <PetefromTn_> and you have my undying respect LOL...
[19:08:10] <ssi> haha
[19:08:26] <ssi> seriously I personally have a lot more equipment and tools than the entire freeside collective :P

[19:11:54] <zeeshan> how hard is it to follow a fucking drawing
[19:12:02] <zeeshan> i told this other masters student to machine something
[19:12:06] <PetefromTn_> pretty damn hard..
[19:12:06] <zeeshan> for a clearance fit
[19:12:18] <zeeshan> i specified -.001 undersize
[19:12:28] <zeeshan> he makes it 1/8" undersize..
[19:12:29] <zeeshan> ?
[19:12:36] <zeeshan> the whole part is scrap now
[19:12:40] <ssi> that's sorta like the same tihng
[19:12:52] <zeeshan> i spent 8 hours machining the other features on it
[19:13:43] <serp> PetefromTn_: everyone is welcome... look it up on the website... most all the tuesday nights (except tonight oddly enough) are open to the public with some little presentation or something
[19:14:07] <PetefromTn_> why not tonight?
[19:14:26] <serp> it's a member meeting to vote on stuff.. to be honest it's probably open too but would be boring
[19:14:35] <PetefromTn_> my new to me fullsize bronco is not registered yet. I need to get a new fuel tank for it. So I would have to take my wife's trooper.

[19:16:44] <PetefromTn_> I wish I could be a part of some of that stuff.
[19:16:57] <ssi> zeeshan: I emailed the guy in canton
[19:17:03] <zeeshan> PetefromTn_: part of building plastic cars?
[19:17:05] <PetefromTn_> Maybe I need to come up there and meet and greet and stick my gnarled ugly toe in the door...
[19:17:11] <serp> yah ornl is some real stuff.. some of the supercomputer dudes are members
[19:17:17] <PetefromTn_> hell part of anything worth doing...
[19:17:37] <zeeshan> ssi i hope you low balled
[19:17:38] <zeeshan> :D
[19:17:45] <PetefromTn_> maybe I can get some business going with my own shop here for them.
[19:17:47] <serp> PetefromTn_: if you are interested in the car i think they do tours.. you could contact the localmotors guys.. they are pretty good about that stuff usually
[19:18:24] <PetefromTn_> might have to do that.
[19:18:26] <ssi> haven't made an offer, just trying to make contact
[19:18:40] <PetefromTn_> Gotta go out in the shop now and try to make this damn fixture again.
[19:18:44] <PetefromTn_> Cya guys later..

[20:19:33] <alexchally> JT-Shop: I laser cut some radius gauges to eyeball it, or you can cut a taper of a known angle and then measure how far down the taper you go before the taper matches the radius
[20:20:09] <alexchally> or if its a nice 2d part you can print a bunch of circles on paper and match it that way

[20:27:00] <alexchally> PCW, you mentioned the TX0B/TX3B enable thing, do I have to drive those with a jumper, or is there a way to do that in software?
[20:27:31] <alexchally> that is, do I need to actually run a wire from a +5V out to the TXOBENA pin?
[20:29:21] <PCW> No, its just something that needs to be done in the HAL file
[20:30:44] <alexchally> PCW: ok. mooore questions, what do I need to do to make the differential outputs swing the PWM duty cycle around to control my servo?
[20:31:02] <alexchally> is that all going to happen in the .HAL file?
[20:31:51] <PCW> use a servo config and connect the pid outputs to the A,B,C PWM values
[20:32:09] <EW57> & the difference between the 5i25&6i25 is just the bus configuration, or is there more to it?
[20:32:39] <PCW> bus only the 6I25 normally just uses 5I25 configs
[20:33:44] <EW57> great, thank you sir!
[20:34:21] <PCW> alexchally: you will probably have to limit the PID output so the PWM doesn't dissappear if the output saturates

[20:34:41] <PCW> (theres a pin on the PID comp for this)
[20:35:07] <alexchally> PCW, that is, so it does not drive it to a +5VDC high?
[20:35:37] <alexchally> or I guess drive it low
[20:35:44] <PCW> so it doesn not stop generating pulses at either extreme

[20:36:05] <ssi> aw BALLS
[20:36:11] <ssi> these motors have a different shaft size :(
[20:36:13] <PCW> I suspect your drives will fault if this happens
[20:37:09] <alexchally> PCW, it seems reasonable, I will take a close look at it with my 'scope to see what happens when I drive it with the original controller
[20:37:25] <alexchally> I don't know how else they keep it from running away at startup if they don't do that
[20:38:20] <PCW> its actually kind of clever
[20:39:08] <PCW> does it have a processor that interprets the PWM?
[20:40:01] <alexchally> PCW, it must have one in the servo driver, because the drive takes that input and outputs +-100VDC to drive the servos
[20:40:22] <alexchally> Its clever, noise resistant, and kind of a pain in my ass :D

[20:42:01] <JT-Shop> rant off
[20:42:10] <alexchally> JT-Shop: I just had another idea, you could measure that radius using the chord length: http://www.mathopenref.com/chord.html
[20:42:26] <alexchally> kind of a PITA, but if you have a lathe and a dial indicator it could be done

[21:29:31] <PetefromTn_> well managed to get the damn fixture machined nice and pretty.
[21:29:40] <PetefromTn_> Now working on the CAM for the part finally.
[21:29:50] <PetefromTn_> Gotta cut some stock here now.
[21:31:09] <PetefromTn_> I am loving my shop built stainless fly cutter with cemented carbide custom radius ground inserts. Makes for a SMOOTH SHINY finish!! I like smooth and shiny.
[21:31:38] <ssi> DaViruz: I'm trying to swap a set of motors out and get back to work, and the new motors have 5mm shafts instead of 1/4" shafts. I can drive to mcmaster and buy pulleys in any imperial size I need, but ordering something from god knows where maker kids online store and waiting a week doesn't fit my schedule

[21:33:39] <PetefromTn_> ;)
[21:33:50] <ssi> yeah, I'm hungry and cranky
[21:33:57] <PetefromTn_> LOL me too...
[21:34:09] <PetefromTn_> I need to get this part machined and it is taking too damn long.
[21:34:22] * jymmm hands out midol to the lot of ya!
[21:34:23] <ssi> I had to completely disassemble the motion of the machine to install limit switches
[21:34:24] <PetefromTn_> I am slow as molasses with this shite.
[21:34:28] <ssi> and decided to swap these motors at the same time
[21:34:41] <PetefromTn_> a mans gotta have limits!
[21:35:18] <PetefromTn_> incidentally CamBam's holding tab feature kicks ass... Never used it before today.
[21:35:33] <ssi> haha
[21:35:50] <PetefromTn_> seriously it has auto and manual modes and lots of nice settings.
[21:35:54] <DaViruz> is it that diffult to bore them then? when i get timing belt pulleys localy they usually only stock unbored ones
[21:35:56] <Connor> PetefromTn_: Really? You haven't used that I've used it..
[21:36:14] <PetefromTn_> well LA DEE DA!!
[21:36:28] <PetefromTn_> you have had CamBam a lot longer than I have man LOL
[21:36:37] <PetefromTn_> it is quite nice tho.

[21:39:09] <jymmm> 5mm to 1/4"
[21:39:09] <PetefromTn_> goes with the midol...
[21:39:13] <ssi> heheh
[21:39:28] <ssi> 1.35mm is a hell of a lot of clearance to take up with jbweld :P
[21:39:45] <ssi> I got these 3/16" pulleys mounted
[21:39:49] <ssi> they're a little wobbly, but it'll do
[21:39:53] <PetefromTn_> throw those bitches in that nice lathe and get er done man...
[21:39:55] <ssi> I think they might actually be 10 tooth pulleys
[21:40:04] <ssi> PetefromTn_: lathe isn't working cause you won't come help me fix it ;)
[21:40:20] <ssi> 10 tooth pulleys further doubles my resolution
[21:40:23] <PetefromTn_> Oh I will fix it right onto my trailer and haul that monster home LOL...
[21:40:37] <ssi> so between the 400 step motors and the 10 tooth pulleys, I should be down to 0.002"/step
[21:41:00] <PetefromTn_> before or after microstepping?
[21:41:05] <ssi> before
[21:41:12] <PetefromTn_> cool.
[21:41:18] <ssi> and I can microstep up to 128 :P

[21:56:05] <zeeshan> found another mistake in this part this guy made
[21:56:10] <zeeshan> he drilled the bolt circle wrong
[21:56:24] <zeeshan> :{
[21:56:28] <PetefromTn_> ya sure you are not "THIS GUY"
[21:56:31] <zeeshan> no
[21:56:39] <zeeshan> i dont make stupid mistakes like that
[21:56:42] <PetefromTn_> just checkin man hehehe
[21:56:54] <PetefromTn_> EVERYBODY makes stupid mistakes man...
[21:56:59] <zeeshan> my mistakes consist of dyslexia
[21:57:04] <zeeshan> thats about it
[21:57:08] <zeeshan> but im consistent
[21:57:09] <zeeshan> haha
[21:57:25] <zeeshan> 2.625 ?
[21:57:26] <PetefromTn_> I'm consistent too... I CONSISTENLY screw up stuff
[21:57:28] <zeeshan> 2.652!
[21:57:29] <zeeshan> :)
[21:57:42] <zeeshan> the rule of machining is
[21:57:45] <zeeshan> double check double check!
[21:57:49] <zeeshan> if im doing bolt circles
[21:57:52] <zeeshan> ill always bust out the ruler
[21:57:55] <zeeshan> just to double check
[21:58:04] <t12> mistakes can actively evade double checks
[21:58:07] <zeeshan> this guy is out by 1.118"
[21:58:07] <PetefromTn_> I usually spot drill and check the positions.
[21:58:09] <t12> for example if you double check the pattern
[21:58:11] <zeeshan> not sure how that happens
[21:58:15] <t12> your drawing dimensions are instead wrong

[21:58:31] <zeeshan> i don't mean to sound cocky
[21:58:39] <zeeshan> but after doing 290381320912380932890 problems
[21:58:42] <PetefromTn_> Oh sure ya do..LOL
[21:58:56] <zeeshan> #1 rule is double/triple check work
[21:59:04] <zeeshan> like for example, some of our problems have a solution 3 pages long
[21:59:15] <zeeshan> if you make a mistake early on, it screws up the entire solution
[21:59:40] <zeeshan> so usually i read numbers forward and then backwards
[21:59:44] <zeeshan> then if im adding numbers
[21:59:53] <zeeshan> i'll subtract the answer from either of the numbers i added
[22:00:12] <zeeshan> its almost ADD
[22:00:40] <zeeshan> some of these profs are not lenient at all
[22:00:50] <zeeshan> if you scre wup in the beginingm, they'll mark the whole question wrong
[22:01:02] <zeeshan> but some of them will cary on your mistake and see if you arrive at the right answer using your numbers
[22:01:04] <ssi> good for them
[22:01:20] <ssi> I hate the whole "it's not the answer that counts, it's how you solved the problem" mentality
[22:01:23] <ssi> the answer's still wrong
[22:01:31] <ssi> you've still arrived at the wrong place
[22:01:36] <zeeshan> the ones that mark harsh usually write "if this was a bridge, people have died"
[22:01:37] <zeeshan> haha
[22:01:38] <ssi> you need to learn how to check your work, which it sounds like you've done :P
[22:01:49] <PetefromTn_> The last part I made working for that shop was a small steel bracket. I was being VERY Careful because it had several features on it. I still managed to machine some champfers on the bottom instead of the top. Basically lunched a half dozen parts and an entire days work.
[22:02:21] <zeeshan> im just pissed off cause
[22:02:27] <zeeshan> this other guy quit the masters program
[22:02:29] <zeeshan> a couple days ago
[22:02:44] <zeeshan> so all the work he was supposed to do
[22:02:47] <zeeshan> got thrown back at me
[22:02:49] <PetefromTn_> luckily I made a couple spare extras so we were not out anything really just time.
[22:03:10] <PetefromTn_> The drawing was plain to see but somehow I missed the forest for the trees.
[22:03:40] <PetefromTn_> What kills me is I stared at that drawing most of the damn day and still got it wrong. WHAT A JACKASS!

[22:05:03] <zeeshan> are -.002 undersize
[22:05:08] <zeeshan> so its a clearance fit, not a press fit
[22:05:18] <PetefromTn_> hell just smash em in there..
[22:05:19] <zeeshan> i actually fixed that by using loctite!
[22:05:21] <zeeshan> no

[22:07:58] <zeeshan> you guys dont get a ring in the states?
[22:08:09] <alexchally> nope
[22:08:15] <zeeshan> do you have any other symbol that is supposed to remind you of your obligation?
[22:08:20] <alexchally> no order of the engineer, no iron ring...
[22:08:28] <alexchally> zeeshan: the threat of a lawsuit?
[22:08:32] <zeeshan> hahah
[22:08:50] <alexchally> i would actually love to machine myself one, but it seems kinda... douchey?
[22:09:11] <zeeshan> it's kind of cool to have
[22:09:27] <zeeshan> i was in the middle of no where (outskirts of thunder bay ontario) at a bar
[22:09:42] <zeeshan> and an older engineer recognized the ring and he had one too
[22:09:43] <zeeshan> and we chatter
[22:09:45] <zeeshan> *chatted
[22:10:51] <alexchally> zeeshan: the only thing is I would feel really uncomfortable wearing jewlery in the shop... that shit is how you get your finger cut off
[22:11:00] <alexchally> ...says the man with a gigantic beard
[22:11:18] <zeeshan> yep, i always take it off when working on a machine
[22:11:50] <zeeshan> also it sucks if you're not a ring type of person
[22:11:54] <zeeshan> i never used to wear one
[22:12:00] <zeeshan> so it took a couple of months to get used to it

[22:55:27] tjb11 is now known as tjb1
[22:55:34] <ssi> well there's where that problem's coming from
[22:55:35] <k6mle-CNC> I control the spindle speed manually on this unit.
[22:55:42] <k6mle-CNC> :)
[22:55:55] <ssi> comment that out for now
[22:56:12] <k6mle-CNC> just did that ...
[22:56:23] <ssi> k retry
[22:56:45] <k6mle-CNC> it came up with no errors ... now I'll turn on the power to the driver ...
[22:58:59] <k6mle-CNC> Okay ... I'm running a small chunk of gcode that just moves along the Y axis for .5" up and back ... in a loop ...
[22:59:09] <k6mle-CNC> getting an occaisonal missed DIR
[22:59:15] <k6mle-CNC> not as bad as before ...
[22:59:43] <ssi> that's really strange
[23:00:13] -!- Einar1 has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[23:00:25] <k6mle-CNC> I've not done anything with the little pots on the G540 yet ... will that effect it?
[23:01:22] <ssi> that i don't know
[23:01:47] <k6mle-CNC> hmm

[23:06:43] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, so now I am trying to get my output working, but am getting an error after I uncommented everything that had to do with 3pwmgen
[23:06:45] <alexchally_cnc> http://pastebin.com/FgQ3z3kw
[23:06:49] <alexchally_cnc> thats my .hal
[23:07:25] <alexchally_cnc> the error is on line 82: pin hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.A-value.enable does not exist
[23:08:05] <PCW> thats correct
[23:08:12] <PCW> no such pin
[23:09:05] <k6mle-CNC> PCW: getting an occaisional missed DIR, but not as bad as before ...
[23:09:21] <PCW> bad G540?
[23:09:28] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, ok, any thoughts on how I might get from where I am to where I would like to be?
[23:09:57] <k6mle-CNC> the G540 is brand new ...
[23:09:58] <PCW> do halcmd, show pin and use only what you have :-)
[23:11:00] <PCW> well if thye G540 doesnt follow the DIR signal I would suspect it
[23:11:30] <PCW> Should never happen
[23:12:05] <k6mle-CNC> okay ... I'll try the folks at Gecko tomorrow ...
[23:12:24] <PCW> maybe there are other issues (mechanics?)
[23:13:06] <k6mle-CNC> Not sure it's a mechanical issue, as the mill was working fine (albeit slower) with the old driver ...
[23:13:42] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, when I try halcmd show pin I get: RTAPI: ERROR: could not open shared memory (errno=2)
[23:13:42] <alexchally_cnc> Segmentation fault
[23:14:14] <PCW> alexchally_cnc note that the three phase pwmgen only has one enable per 3 pwmgens
[23:14:27] <PCW> linuxcnc has to be running
[23:14:37] <PCW> (for halcmd)
[23:14:55] <PCW> (or the realtime needs to be setup somehow)
[23:15:57] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, but I can't get linuxcnc to run because I need the info from that command?
[23:16:13] <alexchally_cnc> or am I missing something? I feel like I am missing something
[23:16:42] <k6mle-CNC> alex: try halrun from the command line.
[23:16:59] <alexchally_cnc> k6mle-CNC, such success
[23:17:07] <PCW> OK
[23:17:09] <PCW> halrun
[23:17:11] <PCW> halcmd: loadrt hostmot2
[23:17:13] <PCW> halcmd: loadrt hm2_pci
[23:17:15] <PCW> halcmd: show all
[23:17:30] <k6mle-CNC> That's how I got around the same problem!
[23:17:48] <ssi> hehehe
[23:17:51] <ssi> we're all learning today :)
[23:17:58] <k6mle-CNC> dang!
[23:18:27] <zeeshan> i have a 24"x24" 14 gauge sheet of steel
[23:18:46] <zeeshan> i need to drill 120mm holes
[23:18:49] <zeeshan> suggestion? :)
[23:18:55] <alexchally_cnc> hole saw
[23:19:09] <zeeshan> i was thinkin
[23:19:09] <zeeshan> yes
[23:19:09] <zeeshan> but i'm not sure how i'll hold it down
[23:19:09] <ssi> plasma :P
[23:19:09] <zeeshan> my drill press table is kind of small
[23:19:15] <alexchally_cnc> double stick on top of wood?
[23:19:16] <zeeshan> i have plasma
[23:19:21] <zeeshan> but no circlecutting attachment
[23:19:25] <ssi> CNC plasma :)
[23:19:26] <alexchally_cnc> zeeshan, isn't holding it what undergrads are for?
[23:19:35] <zeeshan> alexchally_cnc: haha
[23:19:37] <zeeshan> i'm doing this at home

[23:20:07] <zeeshan> on the right drill press
[23:20:21] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, ok, that worked, i now have a list of things, but I am not sure how to turn that list of things into a working hal
[23:20:25] <zeeshan> i usually like to clamp stuff down good when using a hole saw
[23:20:27] <zeeshan> cause its violent
[23:20:32] <ssi> yes, it is
[23:20:39] <zeeshan> hehe
[23:20:59] <alexchally_cnc> if you have a welder you could tack it down to something easier to hold onto
[23:21:24] <alexchally_cnc> actually, I would do it with a hand drill while standing on the thing
[23:21:39] <alexchally_cnc> if you have something sacrificial to put under it, like say a pallet
[23:22:01] <k6mle-CNC> pallet --- better than an undergrad! :)
[23:22:03] <zeeshan> got a couple of 2xx4
[23:22:10] <zeeshan> i like the standing idea
[23:22:19] <PCW> first thing is consider is that you only have one enable per three pwm outputs so you need to delete some stuff
[23:22:26] <zeeshan> lemme try it out
[23:24:28] -!- thomaslindstr_m has quit [Quit: Leaving...]
[23:25:22] <alexchally_cnc> PCW, ok, the lines net emcmot.00.enable => hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.A-value.enable have been commented out for all three axis
[23:25:59] <alexchally_cnc> now its unhappy with... setp hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.A-value.output-type 1 #pwm on pin1, dir on pin2
[23:26:11] <alexchally_cnc> "parameter or pin not found"
[23:26:20] <PCW> thats not a pin from your list...
[23:26:35] <PCW> copy paste from your list
[23:29:58] <alexchally_cnc> ahhh, the full list had run off the top
[23:30:18] <PCW> there is no output type for 3pwmgens
[23:31:10] <PCW> and the enable for three channe;ls is probably like
[23:31:12] <PCW> net emcmot.00.enable => hm2_5i23.0.3pwmgen.00.enable
[23:32:01] <PCW> (thats the enable for pwm.00 A,B,C)

[23:51:05] <XXCoder> random thought
[23:51:13] <XXCoder> robot arm using CNC parts?
[23:51:31] <ssi> um
[23:51:33] <ssi> cnc machines are robots
[23:51:36] <ssi> just specialized ones :
[23:51:48] <XXCoder> I know, but how adoptable is software anyway
[23:51:54] <ssi> plenty
[23:52:12] <XXCoder> interesting. was it actually real motor?
