[00:01:53] <android14141480> I need a channel where talk about plasma cutter this channel is here ?
[00:03:30] -!- Nick001-shop has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:05:15] <BellinganRoy> It depend's on the subject, if is the plasma cutting itself then *this is not the channel*
[00:07:20] <android14141480> But could you tell me how is called this channel

[00:16:42] <BellinganRoy> Sorry I'm not aware of a plasma cutting related channel, but I think is safe to ask here the same!
[00:24:31] <android14141480> I have a new plasma cutter but i don't know why doesn't working. How psi i need for her?

[01:17:48] <Connor> I got stung in the face by a Yellow Jacket this afternoon... :(
[01:18:04] <PetefromTn_andro> Damn that bites Lol
[01:18:11] <Connor> No. It's stings.
[01:18:12] <Connor> :)
[01:18:28] <PetefromTn_andro> Jeez sorry to hear that dude.
[01:18:36] <Connor> $h!t Happens.
[01:20:05] <XXCoder> ow
[01:20:06] <PetefromTn_andro> Damn weekend flew by quickly
[01:20:21] <XXCoder> virtually no weekend for me, worked sat lol
[01:21:00] <PetefromTn_andro> I worked some both days but still flew by quicker than usual it seemed
[01:21:20] <XXCoder> 6 day workweek last 2 weeks

[01:47:05] asah_ is now known as asah
[01:47:06] <XXCoder> yeah made trange thingy with angles 30 50 and 150
[01:51:28] <PetefromTn_andro> I finally learned how to figure cosine angels with my damn ti86 calculator today thanks to my pal art.
[01:51:53] <XXCoder> yeah prayer is tough to do ;)
[01:52:26] <PetefromTn_andro> I use it to figure the amount of droop in these custom scope rails I am machining here.

[01:52:51] <PetefromTn_andro> Harde har har
[01:53:41] <PetefromTn_andro> I had been doing everything in cad drawings to figure the MOA
[01:59:08] <PetefromTn_andro> I have bee n
[01:59:47] <PetefromTn_andro> Been doing a bunch of 3d cad drawing lately and I think I am finally getting the hang of it
[02:00:21] <PetefromTn_andro> I dunno where I would be without YouTube man seriously
[02:01:16] <Tom_itx> your tutor?
[02:01:32] <PetefromTn_andro> Damn right it is hehe
[02:02:14] <PetefromTn_andro> I swear you can learn just about anything on YouTube if you watch enough vids
[02:03:09] <PetefromTn_andro> I watch a lot of solidworks videos because it is similar to freecad and of course freecad vids are great too.
[02:03:20] <Tom_itx> just don't put it on your resume
[02:03:34] <PetefromTn_andro> Why not
[02:04:33] <PetefromTn_andro> It seems like there are quite a few pro online schools that post their videos on there or at least parts of their series
[02:05:28] <PetefromTn_andro> If you watch enough of them you will get a lot of tips and ideas and concepts about how things get done quicker and easier
[02:09:20] <PetefromTn_andro> I seriously doubt I would have been able to draw half the parts I have without it. So far I have built three different custom parts and sold the design to customers because of the 3d presentation. It's pretty cool!

[02:17:09] <XXCoder> yeah gonna figure freecad
[02:18:47] <PetefromTn_andro> Whaddyamean?
[02:18:58] <XXCoder> freecad is bit tough for me lol
[02:21:00] <PetefromTn_andro> Honestly 3d design has been tough for me in general even when I had access to solidworks it was confusing but like I said the YouTube tutorials helped a bunch
[02:21:28] <XXCoder> got link?
[02:22:12] <zeeshan> XXCoder: what is confusing
[02:22:21] <PetefromTn_andro> Man there are tons of em just search freecad or solidworks tutorials on YouTube.
[02:22:30] <XXCoder> lol ok
[02:22:38] <PetefromTn_andro> Seriously
[02:23:01] -!- asah [asah!~asah@c-69-181-176-3.hsd1.ca.comcast.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[02:23:31] <PetefromTn_andro> Pick a tutorial that looks well done in your native language and just start watching and then pause and try it yourself in the program as you go along
[02:23:47] <XXCoder> nah impossible find in my own language
[02:23:52] <XXCoder> but yeah englisg is fine
[02:24:11] <PetefromTn_andro> You will learn the basics rather quicker
[02:24:17] <PetefromTn_andro> Quickly

[02:24:33] <zeeshan> XXCoder: what is hard
[02:24:48] <XXCoder> oh in general. I made few stuff in freecad
[02:27:51] <PetefromTn_andro> It's actually quite interesting to learn how the features work and seeing others draw there is always another way to accomplish the same thing perhaps quicker.
[02:28:56] <zeeshan> i think most things can be made using revolve, extruding
[02:30:39] <PetefromTn_andro> My biggest problem is I usually wind up screwing up the model somehow later on when I add features improperly which causes problems with previous stuff. And also I need to learn to add champfers and fillets at the end more than during.
[02:31:06] <zeeshan> PetefromTn_andro: do you constrain everything
[02:31:08] <XXCoder> one thing I hate is many ops is not reverseable
[02:31:22] <zeeshan> XXCoder: a lot is reversible
[02:31:26] <PetefromTn_andro> Yes generally
[02:31:32] <zeeshan> if you design it with flexibility in mind
[02:32:07] <PetefromTn_andro> Basically once you get the hang of how the flow works nothing should be irreversible
[02:32:28] <zeeshan> http://www.atpturbo.com/mm5/graphics/00000001/Catalog%20Images/Flanges/Steel/ATP-FLS-038_450.jpg
[02:32:33] <zeeshan> for example if youre making something like that
[02:32:44] <PetefromTn_andro> That's kind of the point of parametric modeling
[02:32:48] <zeeshan> and you know it might get bigger/smaller
[02:32:53] <zeeshan> or the bolt holes might change position
[02:33:09] <zeeshan> i take advantage of symmetry
[02:33:25] <zeeshan> so i'll start off with a rectangular piece with the origin at the center of it
[02:33:46] <PetefromTn_andro> I use symmetry and offset commands almost constantly
[02:34:04] <zeeshan> what do u mean by offset
[02:34:19] <Tom_itx> 3d would be a waste of time on that part
[02:34:28] <zeeshan> Tom_itx: you assume too much
[02:34:46] <PetefromTn_andro> I used the offset features to create my drawing entities and dictated dimensions
[02:35:09] <PetefromTn_andro> Why do you say that?
[02:35:18] <zeeshan> say what
[02:35:28] <PetefromTn_andro> It's a waste of time
[02:35:42] <zeeshan> cause he's assuming that i'd make that part
[02:35:43] <Tom_itx> because it's a very simple 2d part
[02:35:45] <zeeshan> for milling
[02:35:46] <zeeshan> or something
[02:35:53] <zeeshan> he doesnt realize it's a part needed for a larger assembly
[02:35:59] <PetefromTn_andro> It really depends on how it will be machined
[02:37:02] <PetefromTn_andro> Using the mastercam and solidworks they had at the shop making that part in 3d is about as quick as it would be 2d
[02:37:18] <zeeshan> fak autocad nonsense
[02:37:22] <zeeshan> and no parametric !
[02:37:32] <Tom_itx> i wouldn't use acad either
[02:37:43] <Tom_itx> it's not very good for cnc work
[02:37:46] -!- recon_lap1 [recon_lap1!~mec@] has parted #linuxcnc
[02:38:12] <Tom_itx> i suppose it just depends how and what you are used to doing
[02:38:54] <Tom_itx> i've been sent a whole wing assembly just for a couple parts from it
[02:38:59] <PetefromTn_andro> Honestly up til this year basically everything I machined was made in an autocad clone
[02:40:19] <PetefromTn_andro> If the parts do not require 3d machining it is fine and rather quick and easy I think
[02:41:13] <Tom_itx> i would probably prefer working in solidworks but didn't start out with it
[02:42:01] <PetefromTn_andro> From the little time I was able to spend with it Solidworks is awesome wish I could afford it.
[02:43:02] <Tom_itx> it and the post you would need for it
[02:43:48] <PetefromTn_andro> I really wanted to spend some more Time with it and play with the draw 3d functions that us pretty cool.
[02:44:54] <PetefromTn_andro> Post?
[02:45:04] <Tom_itx> to generate gcode from it
[02:45:20] <Tom_itx> it doesn't natively have one that i'm aware of
[02:45:59] <PetefromTn_andro> I understand there are build in cam packages for it that are amazing and cheap or free but you gotta have a license for sw first
[02:46:23] <PetefromTn_andro> That's the spensive part Lol
[02:46:59] <Tom_itx> i've got an old version that has none that i'm aware of
[02:47:10] <zeeshan> what year
[02:47:16] <Tom_itx> but i haven't honestly looked that hard since i use smartcam
[02:47:19] <Tom_itx> i forget now
[02:47:22] <Tom_itx> it's pretty old
[02:47:26] <zeeshan> hsmxpress looks nice
[02:47:35] <zeeshan> mastercam for solidworks has been around for a while
[02:47:41] <PetefromTn_andro> Yup that's one of them
[02:47:53] <zeeshan> i need to relearn mastercam
[02:47:59] <zeeshan> ive spent too much time fucking around with nx
[02:48:08] <zeeshan> the tool paths are always something i dont want them to be
[02:48:11] <zeeshan> its irritating
[02:48:31] <zeeshan> has anyone here setup a cnc lathe with linuxcnc
[02:48:39] <zeeshan> and have all their tool offsets setup?
[02:48:56] <PetefromTn_andro> Mastercam seems pretty straightforward but there are so many options that are hard to understand to. Me
[02:49:05] <zeeshan> its not straight forward
[02:49:07] <zeeshan> for 3d stuff
[02:49:21] <PetefromTn_andro> I thought it was
[02:49:32] <zeeshan> since when did you start using it
[02:49:52] -!- sylphiae has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[02:49:54] <PetefromTn_andro> When I worked in the shop that is all we used.
[02:50:01] <zeeshan> you programmed using mastercam?
[02:50:03] <zeeshan> personally?
[02:50:08] <PetefromTn_andro> Sure
[02:50:14] <zeeshan> lol

[10:47:49] <IchGuckLive> BellinganRoy: ?
[10:50:22] <BellinganRoy> Uh thanks IchGuckLive
[10:51:01] <IchGuckLive> you diddent ask on self help needed
[10:51:07] <IchGuckLive> im in germany
[10:51:40] <IchGuckLive> if you got a queastion to us yust ask as many read the loggings
[10:52:41] <BellinganRoy> Ok thank you
[10:53:37] <BellinganRoy> I was planning in building from "scratch" my own 5 axis cnc (milling no router) and... I've encountered linuxcnc... i plan to use the beagle bone black, so .. I think i'll be around here for quite a long
[10:54:00] <SpeedEvil> :)
[10:54:11] <SpeedEvil> How scratch?
[10:54:22] <SpeedEvil> Are we talking broken chunks of cast iron and a furnace?
[10:54:37] <IchGuckLive> oh nice this might be fun
[10:54:46] <IchGuckLive> what size do you try to go
[10:55:10] <BellinganRoy> this will be SCRATCH, for "scrathc" i'm referring that... uhm only the metal slide, stepper motor and few electronics..
[10:55:17] <IchGuckLive> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=R1DCXe9t3UE
[10:55:49] <IchGuckLive> BellinganRoy: what is the goal the mashine is going to do
[10:56:20] <BellinganRoy> The first I think will be quite small, i plan to use it mostly for metal parts, 30cm x 30 c, on x,y axis, Z ... 15 cm will be enought I think...
[10:56:47] <SpeedEvil> you're buying the XY?
[10:57:06] <IchGuckLive> dont forget the tool length on XYAB movement to compensate on Z 15 is to small
[10:57:19] <BellinganRoy> yes yes I'm referring to "net" working space...
[10:57:55] <IchGuckLive> meatel part relates on a 8point fixing all axis so be shure to mak it stiff
[10:58:09] <BellinganRoy> but I'm really not sure to start with a bigger one for wood only...
[10:58:46] -!- Lathe_newbie has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[10:58:51] <BellinganRoy> Yes I plan to use nema 34 motor, full lenght (too lazy to use a reductor)
[10:58:57] <IchGuckLive> this will give you more space and know how
[10:59:09] <BellinganRoy> The wood one will be nema 23 ecc
[10:59:14] <IchGuckLive> i woudent go on Nema34 first
[10:59:26] <BellinganRoy> For the metal one ?
[10:59:34] <IchGuckLive> a Nema 34 on Gear > 10 is best
[10:59:40] -!- Simooon [Simooon!~simon@gw.obelnet.dk] has joined #linuxcnc
[11:00:06] <BellinganRoy> Sorry I've not understood, you mean a smaller one with reduction gear is better ?
[11:00:15] <IchGuckLive> i pull a 800kg Plasma XYZ on a Nema23 3Nm at 30:1 for now 8month at 8hr dayly
[11:00:30] <BellinganRoy> ! very nice !
[11:00:32] <IchGuckLive> the gear takes the force
[11:00:34] -!- SquirrelCZECH has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[11:00:37] <BellinganRoy> witch motor is it ?
[11:00:45] <IchGuckLive> so its a very smooth stepper run
[11:01:09] <IchGuckLive> http://www.pro-tos.de/shop/Schrittmotoren/
[11:01:21] <BellinganRoy> the problem is that with alluminium I can't go too slow, or else the alluminium will stick on the blade
[11:01:41] <IchGuckLive> i can go 10m/min
[11:01:52] <IchGuckLive> on a 5i25
[11:02:06] <IchGuckLive> at 0.01mm precission
[11:02:18] <BellinganRoy> those are some serious motor, and with very good price too, thank you!
[11:02:28] <IchGuckLive> with no step loss at 8hr shift at 5m/min work speed
[11:02:53] <BellinganRoy> yes this will be enough for alluminium too...!
[11:02:59] <IchGuckLive> if you plan that mashine do it at highly parts
[11:03:17] <BellinganRoy> the http://www.pro-tos.de/shop/Schrittmotoren/Schrittmotor-24H291-42-4-IP-3-Nm.html is marvellous
[11:03:24] <IchGuckLive> where are you in the woorld
[11:03:45] <IchGuckLive> http://foengarage.de/mesa_elek.jpg
[11:03:56] <BellinganRoy> Italy, Frascati near Rome, but I've been some time in Amburg.
[11:03:59] <IchGuckLive> this is the cabinett i build on mine
[11:04:18] <BellinganRoy> good looking!
[11:04:35] <IchGuckLive> i only use the leadshine drivers
[11:04:46] <IchGuckLive> the M880A will fit all you need
[11:04:55] <IchGuckLive> at 70V
[11:05:10] <IchGuckLive> for your wod consider the M542 at 48V
[11:05:10] <BellinganRoy> thank you! for the motor I think the 24H291 is a wonder...
[11:05:36] <IchGuckLive> agree at 39Euros it is a hell of force
[11:05:58] <IchGuckLive> i got a 30:1 worm on it at rackpinon movement
[11:06:12] <BellinganRoy> K
[11:06:14] <IchGuckLive> that pulls the 800kg
[11:06:37] <BellinganRoy> very notable...
[11:07:19] <IchGuckLive> so calculation is 400Steps/rev stepper on 30:1 =12000Steps/rev Pinion
[11:07:30] <BellinganRoy> my goal is to "rebuild" old cars chassis, like vintange bentley ecc
[11:07:33] <IchGuckLive> at 12Teeth T10
[11:07:42] <IchGuckLive> its 120mm/rev
[11:07:46] <BellinganRoy> K
[11:07:55] <IchGuckLive> so 12000 / 120
[11:08:04] <IchGuckLive> =100 Steps per mm
[11:08:11] <IchGuckLive> perfect fit at 0.01
[11:08:25] <BellinganRoy> docs says is a 200 steps/rev
[11:08:28] <IchGuckLive> full speed max torque at best steprate
[11:08:48] <IchGuckLive> BellinganRoy: at half stepping its double
[11:09:00] <BellinganRoy> don't you loose power ?
[11:09:04] <IchGuckLive> you need a microstep to get best speed
[11:09:20] <IchGuckLive> no power loss on up till 178
[11:09:24] <IchGuckLive> 1/8
[11:09:38] <IchGuckLive> but best to go low
[11:09:40] <BellinganRoy> oh good, I've just used pre builded cnc machine from Bieffe Work
[11:09:48] <IchGuckLive> so 1/2 is best to considder
[11:10:38] <BellinganRoy> sorry biesse http://www.biesse.com/it/it/rover/rover_k
[11:11:12] <IchGuckLive> nice i worked a year for barrufaldi punch system in ferrera
[11:11:18] <BellinganRoy> so I'm not well prepared on "low level" mechanical stuff
[11:11:26] <BellinganRoy> Ma allora parli Italiano ?
[11:11:46] <IchGuckLive> No italian only brugola
[11:11:51] <BellinganRoy> ok
[11:12:13] <IchGuckLive> all on english
[11:12:38] <BellinganRoy> for what did you use the plasma cutter ?
[11:12:50] <IchGuckLive> you can get the mesa cards in austria
[11:13:03] <BellinganRoy> oh and by the way I'm also a C++ programmer, so I'll also like to see the code and maybe give an hand!
[11:13:19] <IchGuckLive> http://www.schweden-feuer.de/feuersauelen.htm
[11:13:34] <IchGuckLive> BellinganRoy: its most in python
[11:13:36] <BellinganRoy> At I've thought to use the beagle bone black, i've seen some good shields
[11:14:00] <BellinganRoy> AMAZING http://www.schweden-feuer.de/Feuseu_lg/kandins_on_fire.htm
[11:14:16] <IchGuckLive> ;-)
[11:14:55] <BellinganRoy> I think I'll take one for my sister http://www.schweden-feuer.de/Feuseu_lg/feuKor_hex_on_fire.htm, if she will ever have a garden... -.-
[11:15:06] <IchGuckLive> you shoudt realy considder to go for a better electronic output as on beagle boane
[11:15:31] <IchGuckLive> the 3d printers are mosst on 0.254mm precission this will not fit your need
[11:16:03] <IchGuckLive> i got about 250 mashines running on linuxcnc
[11:17:16] <BellinganRoy> o.O
[11:17:21] <BellinganRoy> serious number...
[11:17:40] <IchGuckLive> it coudt be mutch more i diddent considder all
[11:18:36] <IchGuckLive> this are most at 80% education mashines with no production at all also not stable to mill wood
[11:19:04] <BellinganRoy> What do you mean not stable for wood ?

[11:24:10] <IchGuckLive> dont use a parport for your planed 5axis
[11:24:23] <BellinganRoy> Ok I'll study the site, no no parport absolutly not!
[11:24:36] <IchGuckLive> if you can relie on a 5i25 7i76

[11:34:30] <IchGuckLive> yes
[11:36:27] <BellinganRoy> For the spindle if I can ask, I've seen those https://www.buildyourcnc.com/Item/spindle-inverter-2!2kw-spindle-vfd
[11:36:45] <BellinganRoy> or a 1.5Kw too there is
[11:37:03] <IchGuckLive> yes the huanyan works fine
[11:37:31] <IchGuckLive> lots of people use them
[11:37:35] <BellinganRoy> thank you, rpm are driven by the board so . good
[11:37:56] <IchGuckLive> yes but consider its made for RPM over 10k

[14:03:34] <FinboySlick> Loetmichel: Around here, one of the first rules of driving is not to expect other drivers to obey the rules.

[15:35:30] <zeeshan> is there something wrong with the tool table in linuxcnc?
[15:40:17] <Loetmichel> zeeshan: noide, never used it ;-)
[15:40:20] <Loetmichel> no idea
[15:40:25] <zeeshan> ;/
[15:41:08] <archivist> it works for me on my lathe
[15:41:35] <zeeshan> archivist: i'm confused by it..
[15:41:45] <zeeshan> so when i put my rh turning tool and make it tool 1
[15:42:01] <zeeshan> i use the tool offset touchoff for both x and z
[15:42:12] <zeeshan> then using the mdi, i set it to tool 2
[15:42:26] <zeeshan> and do tool offset touchoff for both x and z again..
[15:42:31] <zeeshan> is this the correct procedure?
[15:42:57] <archivist> erm what...why doing it a second time with the same tool
[15:43:04] <zeeshan> sorry
[15:43:08] <zeeshan> i change the tool to a facing tool
[15:43:12] <zeeshan> (tool 2)
[15:43:19] <zeeshan> tool 3 is a lh turning tool
[15:43:20] <zeeshan> etc
[15:44:08] <archivist> I edit the table there is a magic command to store offsets in later table entries
[15:44:24] <zeeshan> thats another thing
[15:44:31] <zeeshan> i want tool 1 to be 0 0 0 for the offsets
[15:44:37] <zeeshan> but everytime i use the touch off thing
[15:44:42] <zeeshan> it resets to some random values..
[15:44:56] <archivist> which touch off!
[15:45:09] <zeeshan> when you press touch off
[15:45:24] <zeeshan> it asks you which type (g54, something something, tool offset)
[15:45:28] <zeeshan> i select tool offset
[15:45:33] <archivist> dont
[15:45:50] <zeeshan> can you please describe how you set yours up
[15:45:54] -!- Lathe_newbie has quit [Ping timeout: 272 seconds]
[15:46:07] <archivist> tool1 sets the basic position, only do that for 2 and up
[15:46:19] <zeeshan> thats what im trying to say though
[15:46:26] <zeeshan> i've already set tool 1 to 0 manually
[15:46:38] <archivist> so you dont up date the table for tool one
[15:46:39] <zeeshan> then i do a tool change to tool 2, and change the cool, and touch off again
[15:46:59] <zeeshan> when i do that, tool 1 automatically changes from 0 0 0 to some random values on its own..
[15:49:21] <archivist> g54 is wrong see http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/2.4/html/gcode_main.html#sec:G10-L1-Set-Tool-Table
[15:49:31] <zeeshan> grrr
[15:49:33] <zeeshan> im not using g54
[15:49:51] <archivist> what you said <zeeshan> it asks you which type (g54, something something, tool offset)
[15:50:34] <zeeshan> http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/2.4/html/lathe_lathe-user.html#r1_3_1
[15:50:40] <zeeshan> im using these instructions
[15:50:46] <zeeshan> for both X and Z
[15:51:17] <zeeshan> step #2 "set current tool to TnM6, where n is the tool number" <- i do this using the mdi
[15:51:20] <zeeshan> i type T2 M6
[15:51:42] <archivist> I edit the table and dont futz with that method :)
[15:51:45] <zeeshan> then step 5 is what i was talking about
[15:51:53] <zeeshan> yes, but when you use that method for tool 2
[15:52:00] <zeeshan> tool 1 will automatically get over-written for some reason
[15:52:03] <zeeshan> !! :P
[15:52:52] <zeeshan> archivist: heres another question for you
[15:53:21] <zeeshan> when you are using a cam software to generate your g-code, and you have specified in the cam software where the "tool tip" is based on the tool geometry
[15:53:33] <archivist> the first paragraph contradicts itself
[15:53:47] <zeeshan> is it still necessary to use the tool compensation command
[15:55:11] -!- automata [automata!~Amit@triband-mum-] has joined #linuxcnc
[15:55:30] <zeeshan> my cam outputs something like this during a tool change
[15:55:31] <zeeshan> N0030 T01 M06 N0040 G43 H00
[15:55:47] <zeeshan> whoops i mean H01

[15:56:56] <zeeshan> cause i finally have to build something where tolerances matter
[15:57:17] <zeeshan> i'm thinking of making a simple part with a few steps on it
[15:57:25] <zeeshan> and changing tools in between and seeing whats up
[15:57:42] <zeeshan> and then also throwing a radius between the steps and using a radius gauge to measure
[15:57:46] <zeeshan> if its doing it right

[16:11:29] <archivist> I made one for the mill so it can hob and it seems I finally got an order for a couple of gears so time to put it on the machine
[16:11:58] <asah> anyone working with brushless dc / AC servos and not wiring direct from motor to amp? can I push the phases through terminal blocks and be ok?
[16:12:10] <SpeedEvil> asah: sure
[16:12:13] <SpeedEvil> If properly rated
[16:12:35] <PetefromTn_> afternoon folks.
[16:12:49] <asah> they are huge, and rated for the DC servos that used to be on here running at 380V
[16:12:59] <asah> I am running at 170
[16:13:04] <PetefromTn_> asah what machine?
[16:13:10] <asah> my maho 400
[16:13:15] <PetefromTn_> aah. sweet.
[16:13:39] <PetefromTn_> my motors are AC servos and are direct wired from amps so I cannot help you.
[16:13:53] <asah> you are using 8i20s right?
[16:13:57] <asah> for your amps?
[16:14:05] <PetefromTn_> no 5i25/7i77 combo.
[16:14:12] <asah> what is the amp?
[16:14:27] <asah> are you doing analog voltage out to some other amps?
[16:14:29] <PetefromTn_> the motors and drives are all made by Teco I bought them brand new from Machmotion.
[16:14:31] -!- Simooon has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[16:14:36] <asah> ah, ok.
[16:14:56] <PetefromTn_> the motors are matched to the servos from the seller.
[16:15:19] <asah> my cables are pretty heavy guage, the connection to the spade clips on the 8i20 is going to be interesting.
[16:15:41] <asah> it takes forever to back solder with my little iron. =)
[16:16:06] <asah> anyone jumping encoder leads through terminal blocks?
[16:16:12] <PetefromTn_> not familiar with the 8i20 but why are you needing heavy gauge wires to the board?
[16:16:22] <asah> that is probably more sketchy
[16:16:36] <asah> the 8i20 is the power amplifier
[16:17:01] <asah> needs to push 17 amps current, more in peaks.
[16:17:22] <PetefromTn_> aah okay.
[16:19:18] <PetefromTn_> looking at the pics on Mesanet of the 8i20 it appears there are some plug in connections for the high voltage wires along one side can you just get the right connectors or what?
[16:20:17] <asah> It has been a long time since I worked on cars ( refurbed a bunch of my first car when I was 16) but I feel like car rebuilders must feel. These retrofits have so many details! on and on. =)
[16:20:40] <asah> got my project out in the shop I spend my nights and weekends hacking on. =)
[16:20:51] <PetefromTn_> Oh yeah man there is always something you need to get or figure out. it seems like it never ends.
[16:21:14] <asah> I have the connectors ok. they just seem like they are underkill for this kind of connection.
[16:21:26] <asah> but I shall defer to pcw.
[16:21:34] <asah> he actually knowing what he is talking about.
[16:21:35] <PetefromTn_> I am just so pleased that my machine is working and that it is reliable every time I turn it on now.
[16:21:36] <asah> =)
[16:21:45] <PetefromTn_> he sure as hell does..
[16:21:48] <asah> I feel like I am close. =)
[16:21:51] <asah> must be a nice feeling.
[16:22:13] <asah> I have much of my electronics back in and mounted nicely.
[16:22:17] <PetefromTn_> oh don't worry it is still not finished but I use it every day now. Still need to finish up the toolchanger and spindle feedback.
[16:22:21] <asah> now rerouting the wiring.
[16:22:44] <asah> what gui do you uese?
[16:23:01] <PetefromTn_> I swear building a retrofit on a machine that was ALREADY a cnc is so much easier than one that is not its not even funny.
[16:23:14] <PetefromTn_> just axis simple with some add ons.
[16:23:54] <asah> I appreciate more and more the level of effort that went into building this thing.
[16:23:56] <PetefromTn_> I just finished machining some parts a couple minutes ago.
[16:24:00] <asah> 30 years ago.
[16:24:14] <PetefromTn_> I hear they are nice yet elaborate...
[16:24:29] <asah> Ill be able to remove like 70% of the wiring and components.
[16:24:57] <asah> this nice big relay board is going away. and the 7 different transformers.
[16:25:03] <asah> =)
[16:25:03] <PetefromTn_> LOL its so funny you say that I cannot believe how much less stuff is inside the electronics cabinet now after the major retrofit it done.
[16:25:31] <asah> I am seriously considering just making a small box, separated from the machine to put it all in.
[16:25:31] <PetefromTn_> it looks almost naked where before it was packed full of SCHTUFF..

[17:03:51] <asah> clean slate!
[17:04:10] <IchGuckLive> keep a good plan on that
[17:04:30] <asah> =) am going to regret some of it…
[17:04:47] <asah> but it swill be faster to run my own
[17:04:53] <IchGuckLive> but the 400 series is well documented
[17:04:56] <asah> I have the original schematics
[17:05:01] <IchGuckLive> ;-)
[17:05:10] <asah> but much of it is going away.
[17:05:24] <IchGuckLive> keep the good ones
[17:05:25] <asah> I have a 48 port input and 48 port output card.
[17:05:40] <asah> so I am going to do all the logic in linuxcnc
[17:06:08] <IchGuckLive> yea has it been equipt with the philips control
[17:06:15] <asah> got some solid state relays for the things that need high voltage
[17:06:47] <asah> there is lots of interlocks and safety logic being done in relays currently.
[17:07:03] <asah> Ill add a safety plc
[17:07:09] <asah> for the critical bits.

[17:08:38] <IchGuckLive> the maho 400e got brekes on etch spiondle for movement they need to bee opend first
[17:09:02] <asah> right… mine had a z axis brake.
[17:09:10] <asah> (y axis originally)
[17:09:15] <asah> I have replaced the servos.
[17:09:22] <asah> new axes have brakes yes.

[18:30:26] <PetefromTn_> onyedikilo sounds like you might have some stiction or something or you are experincing some initial movement that is taken out with enough travel.
[18:30:37] <archivist> onyedikilo, backlash shows up on reversals, if you keep moving one direction after taking up lost motion you wont see any more error
[18:31:18] <PetefromTn_> the part clamps on with dovetails onto the rifles dovetail rails and the screws tighten it down while the whole assembly flexes just slightly to account for that. It is the way quite a few rails like this work.
[18:32:03] <jdh> that's what I meant... I just can't see a dovetail in yoru part
[18:32:09] <PetefromTn_> it might be hard to see the dovetail grooves in the picture. They are just .095 deep and about half that wide into the side rails.
[18:32:50] <IchGuckLive> onyedikilo: what is your scale
[18:33:24] <onyedikilo> IchGuckLive, dial indicator has 0.01mm precision
[18:33:33] -!- sudobangbang has quit [Read error: No route to host]
[18:33:46] <PetefromTn_> they clamp onto a shallow small dovetail on the rifles barrel shroud which is cut into a relatively thin walled tube so you cannot have a deep groove there or actually you can but it is not necessary. These clamp on very strong and since it is just a 12ftlbs air rifle it does not take much since there is virtually ZERO recoil.
[18:33:51] <onyedikilo> IchGuckLive, is that what you meant ?
[18:34:30] <IchGuckLive> no in the ini you got a scale value on etch axis what does SCALE show on Acis_0

[18:38:45] <jdh> make some Ti ones

[18:39:02] <PetefromTn_> naah it is not worth it.
[18:39:16] <PetefromTn_> these are pretty light and serve the purpose without being too over the top.
[18:39:19] <jdh> but some decorative rubber things in the middle and call them harmonic stabilizers for greater accuracy
[18:39:19] <archivist> onyedikilo, you can write your gcode so it all works in one direction (like a manual machine would be used)

[18:40:16] <PetefromTn_> BRB gotta go pickup my kids.
[18:40:26] <onyedikilo> archivist : stepper 1600 steps per rev, 10mm leadscrew pitch

[18:40:54] <archivist> is that microsteps?
[18:41:04] <onyedikilo> archivist : 8 microsteps
[18:41:10] -!- PetefromTn_ has quit [Quit: I'm Outta here!!]
[18:41:18] <onyedikilo> archivist : 8 x 200
[18:41:36] <onyedikilo> archivist : 160 microsteps per 1mm travel
[18:41:47] <archivist> well 200 is the real number of accurate positions
[18:42:03] -!- JLuc69_ has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[18:42:17] <archivist> the microsteps in between will not be as accurate
[18:42:25] -!- automata has quit [Ping timeout: 255 seconds]
[18:42:53] <onyedikilo> archivist : y and z axis are running fine
[18:43:08] <SpeedEvil> To do it properly, you need to calibrate microsteps
[18:43:20] <SpeedEvil> but that's not very commonly possible in most drivers
[18:43:25] <onyedikilo> archivist : but i will keep that in mind and experiment changing the steps
[18:43:27] <archivist> you can verify by carefully noting all steps over a distance http://www.archivist.info/cnc/screw_error/
[18:43:51] <SpeedEvil> Microstepping assumes generally that the motors follow nice sinewave patterns - in reality there is distortion
[18:44:04] <archivist> large distortion
[18:44:17] <onyedikilo> ok i will change it to 10 microsteps then
[18:44:28] <SpeedEvil> number of microsteps isn't really the issue
[18:44:46] <onyedikilo> to make it more accurate for the sake of the machine
[18:44:55] <archivist> the assumption of accuracy of microsteps is the problem
[18:45:00] <pcw_home> you have errors > full steps so probabl mechnical
[18:45:17] <onyedikilo> i use the microsteps for compensating the vibrations

[18:47:14] <onyedikilo> leadscrews sound growling, bad alignment of motors, i will reposition them
[18:47:18] <pcw_home> with 10mm pitch your -0.2 +0.6 mm errors are 4 and 12 full steps respectively (so not ustep related at all)
[18:48:58] <pcw_home> so really sounds mechanical: leadscrew shift in bearings, bad coupling to step motor, backlash etc
[18:49:58] <onyedikilo> couplers have a slight angle and make the leadscrews whip, i need to reposition the motors asap

[20:09:06] <MrHindsight> high volume applications of anything under patent by 3d systems or similar
[20:09:11] <JEntrep> the sole/insole *could* be 3D printed
