08:36 AM skunkworks: hazzy: where did you get the gas shocks on your conversion? (and how much travel?)
08:37 AM skunkworks: *strut
08:51 AM hazzy-m: skunkworks: I got them from McMaster, P# 9416k23. They are 100# force and ~16.25" travel
08:52 AM hazzy-m: https://www.mcmaster.com/9416k23
08:54 AM skunkworks: wow
08:54 AM skunkworks: cool
08:55 AM skunkworks: hazzy-m: did you see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ4O84y_gpY
08:56 AM skunkworks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooQFhbMkHak
08:57 AM skunkworks: hazzy-m: where did you end up mounting them?
08:58 AM hazzy-m: skunkworks: Very Nice! I like your Y axis chip cover
08:58 AM skunkworks: it will need some tweeking... but close
08:59 AM hazzy-m: I mounted them to the ball nut block with little brackets, and the lover end just rests on the column casting: https://i.imgur.com/SgV5qYY.png
09:01 AM skunkworks: cool - thanks!
09:01 AM hazzy-m: skunkworks: Here is some documentation on the build here: https://github.com/KurtJacobson/RF45-CNC
09:07 AM skunkworks: 6 Cycles per minute
09:09 AM skunkworks: at 12 inches that is 144 ipm...
09:34 AM hazzy-m: skunkworks: I have certainly exceeded 6 z-axis cycles per minute playing around :D, but in actual operation that would be fairly unusual even for a very fast machine
09:34 AM hazzy-m: One things I was concerned about was the struts might not be able to keep up with rapid moves, but I tested them to 250ipm and they kept up fine
09:35 AM hazzy-m: You machine moves right along though, so that might be a problem ...
09:37 AM skunkworks: hazzy-m: Z is currently 180
09:38 AM skunkworks: hazzy-m: did you add oiling?
09:42 AM skunkworks: 25000 cycles...
09:42 AM skunkworks: probably last a while
04:15 PM andypugh: CMorley: Awake?
04:15 PM andypugh: I am struggling with panelui
04:16 PM andypugh: It crashes (like, freezes axis) when I press the spindle+ but not when I press spindle- with multispindle
04:16 PM andypugh: And I am not clear where the ini files get converted to python interface commands
09:49 PM CMorley: andypugh: src/emc/usr_inf/pyui/commands.py has the commands to linuxcnc in it.
