06:01 AM jthornton: Jin^eLD: you around?
06:14 AM Jin^eLD: yes, hey
06:23 AM jthornton: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.7/html/gui/pyvcp.html#_containers
06:24 AM jthornton: I think I've explained the options for fill, anchor and expand better
06:24 AM Jin^eLD: aah, makes more sense now, indeed
06:24 AM Jin^eLD: thank you
06:24 AM Jin^eLD: I will try it out today
06:25 AM jthornton: your welcome
07:09 AM Jin^eLD: jthornton: hmm, I am still not sure how to make my two elements in the right labelframe be grouped at the top though, I tried adding another vbox beneath and giving it a "both" fill, but it does not work that way... If I add another test label inside that new vbox it just distributes all components evenly along the y axis starting from its center
07:12 AM Jin^eLD: its not that important, its only a UI for the component test and simulation, still would be interesting to understand how that layouting works
10:02 AM seb_kuzminsky: jthornton: that's a lot more clear, thank you!
10:11 AM jthornton: your welcome
01:02 PM KimK: Jin^eLD: If it helps, when I was making a pyvcp panel, I had to periodically alternate between vertical and horizontal boxes to get the appearance I wanted. Good luck on your project.
01:05 PM Jin^eLD: KimK: ok I'll try to play around with such an alternation, maybe that'll help, thank you
01:15 PM KimK: I think I was 5 or 6 layers deep in a couple of spots. Proper indenting helps.
01:18 PM Jin^eLD: yeah I stick with 2 spaces in XML, else it grows out of proportion too quickly

09:27 PM seb_kuzminsky: i guess this shouldn't surprise me, but it does: https://3dprintingindustry.com/news/u-s-marines-use-3d-printing-to-rapidly-construct-concrete-barrack-139125/
09:28 PM seb_kuzminsky: check out the picture of the screen, about 2/3 down

09:32 PM Tom_L: what GUI is that?
09:35 PM seb_kuzminsky: axis
09:36 PM Tom_L: huh
09:54 PM skunkworks: neat!
