[00:22:25] <Cromaglious_> I can do 1000mm/m jog...
[00:54:16] <CaptHindsight> FloppyDisk525: it's a beast
[00:54:35] <FloppyDisk525> And, not too far from you, I think. Thought you'd like that...
[00:54:39] <CaptHindsight> with a pallet changer
[00:55:03] <FloppyDisk525> I know you're looking for a beastie lathe, but that is a pretty decent machine for the price...
[00:55:57] <CaptHindsight> plus they say it all works
[02:31:05] <Deejay> moin
[05:14:33] <XXCoder> http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/examples/spindle.html
[05:14:34] <XXCoder> hm
[05:15:30] <XXCoder> so neither pwm and vdf have feedback, its in seperate sectiomn
[05:47:46] <jthornton> morning
[05:48:31] <jthornton> XXCoder: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1808823
[05:48:40] <XXCoder> yo
[05:49:12] <XXCoder> nice but isnt that limit height somewhat?
[05:49:27] <jthornton> nope
[05:49:52] <jthornton> doesn't move after setting either
[05:49:57] <XXCoder> checked mine, mines in least cm higher
[05:51:12] <jthornton> I have the bed cranked down a lot and put the stop against the bracket and works great
[05:51:27] <XXCoder> im still need to design a autoleveler
[05:51:32] <jthornton> the aluminum one I made is 5mm to long
[05:51:42] <XXCoder> heh that may be not compitable to anti-wobble
[05:51:42] <jthornton> but works
[05:51:51] <XXCoder> it rises hotbox by 1 cm
[05:52:29] <jthornton> what may not be compatible to anti-wobble?
[05:52:41] <XXCoder> your z limit
[05:52:52] <XXCoder> maybe it will work dunbno
[05:52:57] <jthornton> if you use a glass plate you will have to raise it up
[05:53:31] <jthornton> I know it works I have it installed
[05:53:45] <jthornton> you could reverse it but no need
[05:53:47] <XXCoder> heh I only have 3 mm or so of rise before bed deteches
[05:54:13] <XXCoder> 1 cm rise is a lot. I lowered couplers to make more room but still quite a bit
[05:54:45] <jthornton> how do you pay off the filament?
[05:55:08] <XXCoder> I just loose extruder, use metal stick to guide it in
[05:55:11] <XXCoder> then push it though
[05:55:44] <XXCoder> till it reaches end, then do couple attempts to print before it succeeds on making skirt
[05:56:20] <jthornton> do you have something to mount the spool on?
[05:56:53] <XXCoder> yeah very cheap for now lemme link
[05:57:38] <XXCoder> https://www.thingiverse.com/make:257436
[05:58:05] <XXCoder> its not very good but then I havent completed filiment holder yet
[06:00:13] <jthornton> I guess for a dry run you can just leave the filament out
[06:01:08] <jthornton> I'll probably cobble up something like this to get going
[06:02:27] <XXCoder> https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:743280
[06:02:33] <jthornton> http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:351951
[06:02:37] <XXCoder> I need to cut rods and drill holes
[06:02:40] <XXCoder> then I can complete it
[06:02:54] <XXCoder> fancy.
[06:03:13] <XXCoder> you got local ikea? those boxes is easy to do
[06:03:19] <XXCoder> I have 2 :D
[06:03:20] <jthornton> no
[06:03:32] <XXCoder> their shipping isnt too bad but yeah
[06:03:43] <jthornton> is pla hygroscopic
[06:04:02] <XXCoder> not very bad one but yeah
[06:04:13] <XXCoder> abs is worse, there is worse ones still. like nylon 8
[06:04:29] <jthornton> yea I know about nylon
[06:04:31] <XXCoder> I still cant find other one that is completely sealed lol
[06:04:42] <jthornton> http://www.horizonhobby.com/product/multirotor/multirotor-accessories/multirotor-miscellaneous/tru-spin-prop-balancer-dub499
[06:04:44] <XXCoder> nylon never gets exposed to air till exit hotend
[06:04:58] <jthornton> a variation of that would be the least resistance for payoff
[06:05:10] <XXCoder> yeah
[06:05:17] <XXCoder> you planning quad or plane or sometjhing?
[06:05:21] <jthornton> a dry box would be sealed good
[06:05:37] <XXCoder> I still need to get weatherstripping for mine
[06:05:49] <XXCoder> but then it has HUGE diseccant in it
[06:05:51] <jthornton> I have a foamie but the twin disks and the small rod are friction free
[06:05:53] <XXCoder> its not wet anytime soon.,
[06:06:23] <XXCoder> checked lavel, its at 10%
[06:06:31] <XXCoder> its still "leaky"
[06:06:35] <jthornton> Plano makes some good dry boxes
[06:07:45] <jthornton> https://www.amazon.com/Plano-1619-00-Quart-Tote-Tub/dp/B00840T496
[06:07:56] <XXCoder> nice
[06:08:15] <jthornton> I use that on my motorcycle carrier
[06:08:22] <XXCoder> btw
[06:08:22] <jthornton> http://spyderstore.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=66&product_id=69
[06:08:33] <XXCoder> someone used 2 Lacks to make enclosure for printer
[06:08:40] <XXCoder> https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1740538
[06:10:57] <XXCoder> jthornton: what I use is https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01974FX42/
[06:11:06] <XXCoder> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TXSQ162
[06:11:19] <XXCoder> last link is 2 pack of BIG diseccant thats rechargable.
[06:14:55] <jthornton> I have a friend that gave me a huge box of desiccant
[06:15:14] <XXCoder> rechargable? (not bake recharge but just plug)
[06:15:24] <XXCoder> and grab those labels, its great to have.
[06:15:39] <XXCoder> for example I know my room is aroun 50% while boxes is at around 10%
[06:16:14] <XXCoder> and theres 20 of those thingies for $20 lol not very expensive
[06:16:22] <jthornton> http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1810440
[06:16:27] <jthornton> not bad at all
[06:16:46] <jthornton> that is a 2020 45 degree end to brace the back side of the i3
[06:16:55] <XXCoder> which is "back side"
[06:17:28] <jthornton> where the Y stepper is, from the top back to the bottom back
[06:17:30] <XXCoder> or just print up 90 degree wide bracer lol
[06:17:50] <jthornton> you make two and put on a piece of 2020
[06:17:51] <XXCoder> hmm
[06:18:06] <XXCoder> still cant picture it. little late lol
[06:18:21] <jthornton> I'll take a photo when I make them
[06:18:24] <XXCoder> ok
[06:18:39] <XXCoder> its to make frame stiffer or?
[06:18:39] <jthornton> they will make the top part very rigid
[06:18:46] <jthornton> yea
[06:19:13] <XXCoder> ok. mine is currently pretty dang rigid thanks to that wide 90 frame support :)
[06:19:50] <jthornton> I feel flex in the 2020 a little
[06:19:59] <XXCoder> mine used to have that too
[06:20:03] <XXCoder> its barely movable now
[06:22:27] <Demure_> 'Gday! I cannot for the life of me get the HalScope to record. It says pre-trig no matter what happens.
[06:22:46] <Demure_> Regardless of trigger or if I press the Force button
[06:23:53] <jthornton> http://gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/tuning/servo.html
[06:24:43] <Demure_> I understand how the HalScope works give or take
[06:24:45] <Demure_> Read the tutorials
[06:24:52] <Demure_> But all say that if I press the force button
[06:24:59] <Demure_> And I have run / trigger to normal and no trigger selected
[06:25:04] <Demure_> The force button should just do a record
[06:25:12] <Demure_> Instead it doesn't respond to the button
[06:25:16] <Demure_> Nor does it ever say "Trigger?"
[06:25:17] <jthornton> seems logical
[06:26:09] <Demure_> How so?
[06:26:21] <jthornton> XXCoder: the braces will make the frame a triangle so very rigid
[06:26:35] <XXCoder> indeed
[06:26:35] <jthornton> that it should trigger when you press force...
[06:26:56] <XXCoder> thats why I designed it and printed it
[06:27:39] <Demure_> But is there anything obvious that stops the force button from working?
[06:29:02] <jthornton> beats me I always just used a trigger like shown on my web page
[06:29:27] <Demure_> I tried using a trigger but that also just gave no response sadly.
[06:29:46] <jthornton> was the trigger level set correct?
[06:30:16] <jthornton> and trigger position
[06:33:30] <Demure_> Thanks, position did the trick for the trigger. :)
[06:33:43] <jthornton> yw
[06:49:17] <jthornton> my filament shipped so might get it for the weekend
[06:49:42] <XXCoder> nice
[06:49:59] <jthornton> I guess any small thing is good for a test print
[06:50:47] <XXCoder> indeed
[06:50:52] <XXCoder> I used 1 cm^3 cube
[06:52:08] <archivist> round on top of a diamond , usual cnc test :)
[06:52:10] <jthornton> yea I have to get used to the metric system lol
[06:52:31] <XXCoder> yeah
[06:52:35] <XXCoder> print is all metric
[06:53:08] <jthornton> finally figured out that the back of the model in SolidWorks is the bottom of the part in repetier
[06:53:32] <jthornton> http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:453318
[06:53:59] <jthornton> probably make something like that to start
[06:55:36] <jthornton> round on top of a diamond , usual cnc test google search does not come up with anything
[06:56:45] <XXCoder> squared diamond?
[06:56:51] <XXCoder> or circled diamond? forgot name
[06:59:18] <archivist> http://timf.anansi-web.com/wp/circle-diamond-square/
[07:00:53] <XXCoder> nice
[07:01:04] <XXCoder> that is simple enough for me to make one
[07:01:06] <XXCoder> small one
[07:02:33] <jthornton> that makes sense to mill that part to test for backlash and other issues
[07:12:00] <XXCoder> indeed
[07:12:03] <XXCoder> https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8870
[07:12:07] <XXCoder> interesting object
[07:12:13] <jthornton> I think I'm going to get this for the bulldox xl http://www.filastruder.com/products/all-metal-e3d-v6-hotend
[07:12:13] <XXCoder> and one of older too, 2011
[07:12:31] <XXCoder> all metal, meaning no PFTE inside?
[07:12:39] <jthornton> yea
[07:13:18] <XXCoder> I wonder wghat mine is
[07:13:24] <XXCoder> its definitely e3d clone
[07:16:15] <jthornton> bet it doesn't have the stainless steel insert but looks the part
[07:17:00] <XXCoder> mine has stainless steel now
[07:17:13] <XXCoder> made printing buit harder to do, but it can stand up to abuse from gkow in dark
[07:24:25] <jthornton> http://www.filastruder.com/collections/filastruders-accessories/products/filastruder-kit
[07:24:44] <XXCoder> I do want one too
[07:24:49] <XXCoder> but dunno
[07:26:57] <XXCoder> not bad https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/tls/5810237644.html heh
[07:27:01] <jthornton> I wonder how close it holds the size, real ones are huge and have long pay offs
[07:27:23] <XXCoder> yeah I have seen some of atomic filiment machines video
[07:27:25] <XXCoder> huge.
[08:00:48] <CaptHindsight> jthornton: https://3dprint.com/48922/3d-printer-calibrating-test/
[08:01:45] <XXCoder> thats older version
[08:02:12] <CaptHindsight> it has links to all of his versions
[08:24:53] * jthornton cools down after the workout
[08:27:13] <jthornton> I'm not seeing the links to the latest version...
[08:30:36] <jthornton> http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1363023

[08:54:21] <MacGalempsy> looks like Pete is going to get a direct hit from the storm.
[09:11:01] <_methods> pete's by tampa
[09:16:35] <yasnak> yep, we closed up shop on the east coast. over in our west coast right now
[09:25:22] <MacGalempsy> oh. i thought he was further south
[09:27:56] <jdh> pete's on east coast isn't he?
[09:28:12] <SpeedEvil> I am just out of the path.
[09:28:15] <SpeedEvil> In Scotland.
[09:28:17] <SpeedEvil> :)
[09:28:32] <SpeedEvil> Good luck all affected though.
[09:28:40] <SpeedEvil> And all non-affected too.
[09:29:43] <jdh> new storm track models are interesting
[09:34:01] <jdh> some models show a direct pete hit tonight and again next week
[09:40:44] <_methods> nah pete's in tampa
[09:40:50] <_methods> he should be fine
[09:41:01] <_methods> until it circles back around lol
[09:47:28] * nubcake sighs*
[09:48:02] <nubcake> spindle pwm through pin1 is driving me insane... doesn't take any input, just is ~full speed all the time
[09:50:51] <jdh> he left for the storm?
[09:51:43] <_methods> no he lives outside tampa
[09:51:48] <_methods> i doubt he left
[09:54:41] <JesusAlos> Hi
[09:55:38] <jdh> whack. all this time I thought he was in port st lucie
[09:58:06] <nubcake> oh snap.... i think i figured it... -_-
[09:58:27] <nubcake> the moment you really begin to doubt your own sanity...
[09:59:17] <nubcake> PWM 1 and PWM 2 in stepconf spindle configuration refer to min and max voltage ? or how are those values treated?
[10:01:08] <_methods> well i could be wrong but i thought he was around new port richie
[10:04:07] <nubcake> so if my spindle signal goes from 0-10v i have to use the max rpm of the spindle to get the voltage per rpm, right? e.g. 10v/24.000rpm = 0,00041667v/1rpm ?
[10:06:44] <pcw_home> Its easier that that, You just set the PWM scale to RPM at 10V (so 24000)
[10:06:51] <pcw_home> than that
[10:07:01] <nubcake> where/how do i do that?
[10:09:28] <pcw_home> so you have a interface that gives 0 to 10V with 0 to 100% duty cycle PWM?
[10:09:39] <nubcake> yes
[10:09:54] <pcw_home> parallel port?
[10:09:58] <nubcake> correct
[10:10:52] <pcw_home> I haven't messed with stepconf, does it help you set up spindle speed controls?
[10:11:34] <nubcake> it asks for PWM-Rate in Hz (default 100Hz) my spindle says max 400Hz
[10:11:42] <nubcake> enter 0 Hz for PDM mode
[10:12:18] <pcw_home> does it ask for the max spindle RPM?
[10:12:21] <nubcake> then there's "Calibration:" Speed1 set to 100.0 and PWM 1 set to 0.2
[10:12:34] <nubcake> i dont think so, or is the Speed1 in rpm?
[10:13:13] <nubcake> Speed2 set to 800 and PWM2 set to 1.0 followed by (greyed out) "cycles per revolution" 100.0
[10:14:21] <pcw_home> so I would do this
[10:14:23] <pcw_home> set speed 1 to 0 and pwm1 to 0
[10:14:24] <pcw_home> then set speed 2 to 24000 and pwm2 to 1
[10:15:06] <nubcake> is pwm in Volts or what does it mean? because if i set it to 1 and it's volts, wouldn't the speed go way too high?
[10:16:59] <pcw_home> pwm goes from 0 to 1
[10:17:16] <nubcake> oh ok
[10:17:31] <pcw_home> 0 is always off, 1 is always on 0.5 is 50% on
[10:17:52] <nubcake> and what does pwm rate do?
[10:18:07] <nubcake> do i have to set it to 400Hz as that's my spindle's max ?
[10:18:33] <pcw_home> sets the frequency
[10:18:34] <pcw_home> man pwmgen
[10:18:36] <pcw_home> for the details
[10:18:50] <nubcake> oh ok
[10:18:50] <archivist> it is filtered so and ends up as a dc voltage, dont confuse it wit spindle frequency
[10:19:39] <nubcake> sweet
[10:19:41] <nubcake> it runs <3
[10:19:52] <nubcake> yay :D
[10:20:28] <nubcake> finally what , how and where to connect and set-up, thanks alot folks
[10:20:34] <nubcake> *figured
[10:49:09] <Erant> I need to convert my spindle to LCNC control... Just haven't gotten around to it :P
[11:51:45] <Loetmichel> maaaan i think my boss is getting a bit senile. He started a webconference with some customers today. Then came down to my office: "MY PC IS KAPUT! NO AUDIO IN OR OUT AND THE BRASILIANS CANT SEE ME!!!!1111"... luckily (for him) i had a cheap USB webcam with a microphone and a pair of Speakers in the scrap bin that i could connect to his PC...
[12:23:52] <IchGucksLive> hi
[12:25:36] <IchGucksLive> someone in the path of the hurricane
[12:30:10] <IchGucksLive> hi nubcake_
[12:31:01] <nubcake_> servus
[12:31:18] <IchGucksLive> still on sql
[12:31:45] <nubcake_> i can't make it to your exhibition on saturday, sorry :/ good friend of mine invited me to his restaurants opening
[12:32:26] <nubcake_> wow, what are you doing that you're still on sql? checking datasets by hand? :D
[12:34:21] <nubcake_> by the way, i got my cnc working.. turned out i just failed setting the spindle pwm properly.. - feeling pretty dumb after that :'D
[12:40:17] <IchGucksLive> im now on page 300+ from a 606database range
[12:40:50] <nubcake_> what are you doing? manually controlling? :D
[12:40:58] <IchGucksLive> my good friend has a Biogas system and harversted 180Ackers of corn
[12:41:11] <nubcake_> oh wow thats a lot
[12:41:22] <IchGucksLive> and i do the analytics to come back into the libroffice system
[12:41:34] <Lowridah> wish i could take advantage of my biogass
[12:41:40] <IchGucksLive> 606 tours 5000tonns of corn
[12:41:40] <JT-Shop> they get 300 bushels an acre here
[12:42:11] <nubcake_> sweet, i just got tons of wood here ^^
[12:42:42] <IchGucksLive> here in the Forest Pfälzerwald they harvested 17000 Qmeterds this year
[12:42:48] <JT-Shop> http://gnipsel.com/images/equipment-shed/logs.jpg
[12:42:55] <JT-Shop> http://gnipsel.com/images/equipment-shed/rounds.jpg
[12:43:06] <JT-Shop> got all that when I cleared for the new building
[12:43:36] <nubcake_> nice, gonna be a warm winter i guess
[12:44:14] <JT-Shop> prob will with so much wood on hand
[12:45:10] <nubcake_> planted 8000 (idk the english word for it) of the tree-seed thingies this year
[12:45:42] <nubcake_> seedling?
[12:45:45] <nubcake_> idk :D
[12:47:39] <IchGucksLive> seedling to me that question
[12:48:03] <IchGucksLive> here we are in SPDGreen so it is Nature on its own seed
[13:39:57] <Crom> Erant, well my parts are on order. I should have Arduino speed PID control of my spindle PWM around the end of the month
[13:41:19] <Crom> Guess I'm not green since I took out a olive tree here...
[13:41:42] <Crom> and most of my roses are root stock now
[13:42:44] <Tom_L> JT-Shop did you do all that so you could play with your wood splitter?
[13:48:03] <IchGucksLive> Gn8
[13:49:54] <JT-Shop> yea
[14:45:51] <witnit> I had an idea for semis, where a truck can use a wifi camera with a magnetic base which he can stick anywhere on a trailer so he can mind his blind spots (such as directly behind him) then move it to the next trailer if he has to swap trailers.
[14:46:06] <witnit> I wonder if there interest in such a thing
[14:47:01] <SpeedEvil> no.
[14:47:17] <SpeedEvil> Trucks already have reversing cameras, in general.
[14:47:22] <SpeedEvil> (nowadays)
[14:47:47] * skunkworks applies for patent...
[14:48:38] <witnit> I mean it seems like something you could market directly to "Pilot" or "moms" truck stops
[14:49:53] <witnit> wifi cam with magnet base, rechargable battery and small rotor for charging with wind made by traveling down the road.
[14:50:53] <witnit> I could probably package them up and peddle them across the country
[14:51:12] <SpeedEvil> multiple cameras 3d solver, head-mounted display to make the truck transparent.
[14:51:16] <jdh> have you spent 30 seconds googling this new idea?
[14:51:22] <BeachBumPete> LOL
[14:51:29] <witnit> I never seen one
[14:51:56] <jdh> google, you will
[14:52:01] <SpeedEvil> Magnetic wifi cameras are very common
[14:52:07] <jdh> pete: hows stuff?
[14:52:15] <witnit> how are they powered?
[14:52:24] <BeachBumPete> you need to make a camera that they can use to record the flashes and sexual activities of passing motorists from the truck cab LOL
[14:52:33] <BeachBumPete> jdh fine you?
[14:52:44] <jdh> good so far.
[14:52:51] <SpeedEvil> witnit: aliens.
[14:52:52] <jdh> you in PSL?
[14:52:57] <BeachBumPete> yeah man
[14:54:30] <jdh> got beer and bread?
[14:54:44] <BeachBumPete> don't like beer got lotsa bread ;)
[14:55:28] <jdh> looks like it is going for you, then methods, then you again
[14:55:29] <BeachBumPete> got tons of groceries and whatnot today house has all the galvanized steel shutters installed and everything is out of the yard and inside safe and sound
[14:55:40] <BeachBumPete> yeah probably
[14:55:53] <BeachBumPete> we were just outside playing frisbee
[14:56:01] <BeachBumPete> :)
[14:56:25] <witnit> all these cameras look like they are powered from a cord of some kind
[15:04:06] <BeachBumPete> jdh where are you located again?
[15:04:32] <jdh> wilmington nc
[15:05:07] <jdh> looks like just rain now. was coming straight here before I wished it away
[15:05:09] <BeachBumPete> oh man you're way up there LOL
[15:05:27] <BeachBumPete> oh yeah how do you "wish it away" I need some a dat
[15:14:28] <jdh> I'd tell you but I wished it down there or the gulf
[15:15:17] <BeachBumPete> gee thanks man you're all heart
[15:15:42] <jdh> so... better you than me, sorry.
[15:16:00] <BeachBumPete> I'll remember that
[15:20:47] * JT-Shop takes a monkey pickle break
[15:25:07] <_methods> damn i thought you were by tampa pete
[15:27:04] <_methods> it's nice here now
[15:27:07] <_methods> nice and cool
[15:27:15] <_methods> 78 and breezy
[15:30:06] <BeachBumPete> nope we are east coasters and right now DIRECTLY in the path heh
[15:30:28] <_methods> yeah i guess i'll be gettin it tomorrow
[15:30:37] <_methods> after you guys take all the piss out of it lol
[15:31:16] <BeachBumPete> we will give it hell for ya man :)
[15:31:28] <_methods> wear it out pete
[15:31:42] <_methods> just leave enough for it to destroy my house
[15:31:53] <jdh> supposed to be a 4 until it gets past SC
[15:31:57] <BeachBumPete> dear god why?
[15:31:59] <_methods> daddy needs a new shed
[15:32:06] <BeachBumPete> oh hehe
[15:32:16] <_methods> a new roof would be nice too
[15:35:27] <BeachBumPete> agreed
[15:35:39] <BeachBumPete> kids are outside playing right now
[15:36:14] <BeachBumPete> they are saying its a certainty that we will lose power at some point tonight
[15:36:31] <_methods> i bet if it stays cat4
[15:37:48] <BeachBumPete> I guess we will just sleep in then hehe
[15:38:47] <_methods> charge up the e-readers
[15:38:58] <_methods> you got all your hurricane stuff still
[15:39:09] <_methods> generators and all that?
[15:39:40] <BeachBumPete> we are all shuttered up and have about everything we could need really. Spent some cash the last two days UGGHHh'
[15:40:04] <_methods> yeah you don't really need all that hurricane stuff up in tn
[15:40:28] <BeachBumPete> no there you get tornadoes and freeze to death in winter ;)
[15:41:25] <_methods> hahah
[15:41:27] <_methods> firewood
[15:42:03] <BeachBumPete> in all honesty this looks like the worst one I have ever been in. we are hoping for the best but it is a nasty one.
[15:43:08] <gregcnc> witnit skunkworks http://www.ebay.com/itm/232034571884
[15:46:50] <Cromaglious_> broke my 1/8 end mill on 1/4" shank
[15:53:28] <witnit> gregcnc: lots of truckers drop the trailers and pick up different ones, I havent found any that can be moved from truck to truck and powered by wind from travelling down the road. someone said they are on google but I didnt see it. none are really wireless
[15:58:43] <Nick-Shop> I have this line net collet-open => hm2_5i23.0.gpio.042.out - how do I enable it - been trying various things but no go. Shows up as a signal on halmeter. This operates a SSR. M102 file is ok now - no errors
[15:59:31] <witnit> what are you trying to enable it with?
[15:59:48] <Nick-Shop> a net line
[15:59:55] <witnit> a button on the screen, or a physical switch maybe?
[16:00:17] <witnit> net collet-open => hm2_5i23.0.gpio.099.in
[16:00:22] <witnit> like that?
[16:00:45] <witnit> so when 99.in = true so does 42.out
[16:00:53] <Nick-Shop> command for the m102 file halcmd setp hm2_5i23.0.gpio.043.out False
[16:02:29] <Cromaglious_> Nick-Shop, what was it? Path? or location
[16:02:48] <Nick-Shop> in hal net collet-open => hm2_5i23.0.gpio.042.out - I think I need another line with -enable in it
[16:03:45] <witnit> are your file persmission set so you can execute the M102?
[16:04:20] <witnit> maybe its already right, but not working.... so you should be able to pass your halcmd directly to test
[16:05:04] <Nick-Shop> permissions are set
[16:05:22] <Nick-Shop> what wouldn't be working?
[16:06:07] <witnit> well if you hadnt had the permissions right, the code could be right but the m102 not work because permission\
[16:06:31] <Nick-Shop> trying to find out what I'm missing
[16:07:11] <Nick-Shop> checked to run as program
[16:07:11] * JT-Shop fires up the CHNC to get his M100 and M101 files
[16:07:28] <witnit> can you upload your .hal and your m102
[16:09:25] <JT-Shop> Nick-Shop: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23286228/
[16:09:49] <JT-Shop> the or2 is because I have a physical button to open and close the collet
[16:10:14] <Nick-Shop> my m files work on the 1st hardinge with the pico cards - the mesa stuff is new for me.I'm driving a 4 axis bridgeport with a 7i76 so I'm not a totl idiot
[16:10:30] <Nick-Shop> even if it seems so
[16:10:56] <JT-Shop> now I wonder why I did eval in m100 but not m101
[16:11:03] <JT-Shop> http://paste.ubuntu.com/23286231/
[16:11:23] <JT-Shop> because the first one is not the one I use
[16:11:47] <JT-Shop> http://paste.ubuntu.com/23286234/
[16:11:52] <Nick-Shop> JT- I saw that - I need my machines to do this in a continuous loop
[16:12:40] <JT-Shop> continuous loop?
[16:13:18] <Nick-Shop> run 50 pcs from a bar
[16:13:53] <JT-Shop> I do that so I don't understand the question
[16:14:11] <JT-Shop> I can either open/close from G code or a button
[16:15:23] <Nick-Shop> I should be able to close the SSR from an output pin like my other hardinge. I also don't know the or2.3 - looks like I need to do some reading for that one.
[16:15:28] <witnit> maybe until you figure out whats wrong you could just do a m64p0; (collet open) do some thing.... then m65p0 (collet close) and just "call" these sub routines?
[16:15:39] <JT-Shop> http://paste.ubuntu.com/23286244/
[16:15:59] <JT-Shop> are you still getting an error Nick-Shop?
[16:18:03] <Nick-Shop> No- got that one fixed with PROGRAM_PREFIX and into NC file dir. bin/sh is bib/bash - now no errors
[16:19:00] <JT-Shop> now it just does not work?
[16:19:20] <Nick-Shop> Right just have to fire that SSR to operate the SSR's for the peripherals
[16:20:04] <Nick-Shop> that didnt come out right -trying to type too fast
[16:34:22] <Nick-Shop> halcmd come up as unknown command in test hal command
[16:42:32] <Deejay> gn8
[16:50:30] <Nick-Shop> how do I convert this line
[16:50:31] <Nick-Shop> net machine-power <= motion.motion-enabled =>
[16:50:33] <Nick-Shop> to collet-close
[16:59:12] <gregcnc> sawing aluminum on the vertical bandsaw at wood surface speed is fast, but I spend twice the time saved vacuuming the mess
[16:59:51] <gregcnc> http://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-4-ft-T8-17-Watt-Cool-White-Linear-LED-Light-Bulb-456590/206278131
[16:59:57] <gregcnc> anyone use these?
[17:53:29] <Nick-Shop> got the collet closer working - just no signal to halmeter
[17:57:10] <Frank_2> hi everyone, maybe someone has a cool idea and can help me, i have a ground plate (Y AXIS plate) where linear guides and ballscrew is mounted, but the thing is that if i mount everything, i have a 5mm gap between the linear guides blocks and the ballscrew, making the (z axis) plate not touch the blocks of the linear guide by 5mm, do i make myself clear? thanks for any input..
[17:57:51] <CaptHindsight> Frank_2: a picture is worth 1000 words :)
[17:57:55] <witnit> ^
[17:58:39] <Frank_2> ok, sry, ill try to get something from the cad, i still have nothing assembled (obvious reasons lol)
[18:04:06] <JT-Shop> a 5mm shim...
[18:04:23] <Frank_2> http://imgur.com/a/TPnWs
[18:04:27] <Frank_2> Yes, i need that
[18:04:44] <Frank_2> but they charge me 200Usd to do it here
[18:04:58] <Frank_2> and i havent found a decent 5mm shim anywhere
[18:05:25] <Frank_2> some guy sells stock ground steel in the uk but it doesnt seem to ship overseas
[18:05:43] <Frank_2> i was thinking on lapping
[18:06:14] <Frank_2> i already have the 6.35mm (1/4) steel parts of 50x60mm
[18:06:37] <SpeedEvil> how large?
[18:06:49] <JT-Shop> that's a lot of lapping to go from 6.35 to 5
[18:07:15] <Frank_2> yeah i thought so
[18:08:12] <JT-Shop> you don't have a mill?
[18:08:39] <Frank_2> nope
[18:08:44] <Frank_2> it can be done with it?
[18:09:01] <JT-Shop> I don't see why not
[18:09:38] <JT-Shop> how big are the pieces you need?
[18:10:31] <Frank_2> 50x60mm
[18:11:06] <Frank_2> if its doable with a mill i could ask for other prices, it would be much cheaper
[18:12:44] <JT-Shop> what tolerance do you need?
[18:14:05] <JT-Shop> https://store.diesupplies.com/o1-precision-ground-flat-stock-oil-hardening-tool-steel-presco-pm-metric-p98.aspx
[18:14:30] <Frank_2> if all the pieces are the same, i could get away with +0.1mm
[18:14:39] <JT-Shop> got anyone coming to Miami?
[18:15:22] <nubcake_> love it when things work as planned <3 autobed leveling on my 3d printer finally working flawless
[18:15:35] <Frank_2> i think i saw that, but the lenght kills me
[18:15:42] <JT-Shop> lol I can't even get mine to extrude...
[18:15:48] <Frank_2> no, i dont hehe
[18:15:54] <JT-Shop> why Frank_2
[18:16:15] <nubcake_> JT-Shop, why not, what's the problem?
[18:16:19] <Frank_2> if they ship straight to my country i dont think i will be able to get it
[18:16:26] <Frank_2> i should check the customs
[18:16:28] <nikre> nubcake_, do you modify the smartprobe.ngc file?
[18:16:41] <nikre> how do you implement probing
[18:16:55] <JT-Shop> I got a chinlee i3 clone and it just doesn't seem to extrude enough
[18:17:21] <nubcake_> nikre i'm using marlin with a prusa i3 pro b, set it up in the firmware itself and flashed it via arduino ide
[18:17:22] <JT-Shop> not sure if something is not set right yet, it does extrude but slow
[18:17:42] <nubcake_> JT-Shop, you can set the extrude speed/amount in the software i guess
[18:17:50] <nikre> hmm ok. been there.
[18:18:20] <nubcake_> G29 with 9 definded probe spots on the grid
[18:18:21] <JT-Shop> using repeiter host
[18:18:23] <nikre> do u use marlin's own bed leveling feature?
[18:18:27] <nikre> yeah
[18:18:32] <nubcake_> nikre; yes
[18:18:35] <nubcake_> JT-Shop, same here
[18:18:45] <JT-Shop> and marlin on the ramps
[18:18:47] <nubcake_> you might want to take a look in the slic3r settings aswell
[18:19:10] <Frank_2> thanks for the link jt, maybe it works and i can receive that here
[18:19:11] <nubcake_> there's lots of stuff to set-up for extruding and other things
[18:19:55] <nikre> calibration is a pain
[18:20:08] <nubcake_> nikre, i feel you... been there done that...
[18:20:33] <nubcake_> adjusting the sensor, when tightening the screws... woops to much.. calibrate again..
[18:21:07] <JT-Shop> Frank_2: if you have someone coming to the states I could rough cut it for you to purse size
[18:22:15] <nubcake_> i have a feeling, the new firmware takes longer to finish things than the old one.. but didn't test that yet, just a feeling..
[18:22:45] <nikre> i got tired of 3d printing when first layer caused too much problems. it sticks or floats.
[18:22:55] <nikre> do u use blue tape?_
[18:22:58] <nubcake_> yes
[18:23:00] <nubcake_> the 3m one
[18:23:04] <nikre> no heating?
[18:23:13] <Frank_2> thank you very much for your kindness jt! but i dont think someone is going, ill ask thou. thanks again!
[18:23:29] <nubcake_> bed heating around 110°C and extruder ~215°C printing abs at the moment
[18:25:16] <nikre> i don't get how people can do without heating bed
[18:25:21] <nikre> no repeatability
[18:25:27] <nubcake_> yea...
[18:25:31] <nubcake_> me neither
[18:26:35] <nubcake_> hate it when i print a larger surface and one edge just starts to float.. doesnt stick to the bed anymore, sucks..
[18:27:36] <JT-Shop> I assume Esteps/mm is the extruder scale?
[18:28:06] <nubcake_> yup
[18:29:27] <JT-Shop> does 95.0 sound like a valid number?
[18:29:45] <nubcake_> what kind of extruder is that ?
[18:29:47] <nikre> prusa has a calculator
[18:29:50] <nubcake_> directly extruding ?
[18:30:12] <JT-Shop> bowden tube type
[18:30:24] <nubcake_> nikre, http://prusaprinters.org/calculator/ you mean this one?
[18:30:37] <JT-Shop> https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Full-Metal-Frame-3D-Printer-Professional-3d-Color-Printer-with-8GB-SD-Card-LCD-One-Roll/32705186296.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.y5vVfm
[18:30:39] <nikre> yes
[18:31:46] <nikre> i heard bowden type has retraction problems
[18:31:57] <JT-Shop> XXCoder: has one I'll ask him in the morning if he had to change it
[18:32:23] <nubcake_> feedrate 100 is what my repetier-host sayys
[18:32:30] <JT-Shop> I have a bulldog XL and getting a E3D V6 for it
[18:32:36] <nubcake_> sorry, broken keyboard likes to repeat the y sometimes :'D
[18:32:44] <JT-Shop> for a real printer lol
[18:33:13] <nubcake_> sweet
[18:33:52] <JT-Shop> since slic3r will output LinuxCNC G code I want to make one with nema23's and use Mesa cards
[18:34:01] <JT-Shop> 400x400x400 or so
[18:34:28] <nubcake_> sounds good
[18:34:40] <nubcake_> i'm definitely interested in the results
[18:34:53] <JT-Shop> just want to learn the process with the cheap chinlee printer
[18:35:06] <JT-Shop> it seems decent enough to start with...
[18:35:19] <nubcake_> same here, printing little things, more or less complicated, just to get a feeling for it
[18:36:24] <nubcake_> modding the printer one step at a time, seeing how it works out
[18:36:34] <JT-Shop> do you use slic3r?
[18:36:38] <nubcake_> yes
[18:36:56] <nubcake_> didn't look much into the others yet as it worked fine for me from the beginning
[18:36:58] <JT-Shop> I need to get that installed on the PC out here in the shop
[18:37:04] <nikre> slic3r is pretty slow
[18:37:12] <JT-Shop> dunno why it didn't install
[18:37:27] <nikre> the commercial one is fast cuda?
[18:37:34] <nikre> dont recall the name
[18:37:43] <nubcake_> nikre, slow in which way?
[18:37:47] <nubcake_> slicing?
[18:37:48] <nikre> yes
[18:38:02] <nikre> cuda does it in almost real time
[18:38:08] <nubcake_> didn't really have a long slicing process ever, longest was probably around 15 seconds
[18:38:20] <nikre> maybe they fixed it
[18:38:31] <nikre> or optimized
[18:38:37] <nubcake_> i dont know, could be the i7 making it run fast
[18:38:45] <nubcake_> no clue
[18:39:01] <nubcake_> but cuda slicing sounds awesome
[18:39:18] <nubcake_> parallelizing shit²²²²
[18:39:27] <nikre> oh its cura
[18:39:30] <nikre> not cuda
[18:39:34] <nubcake_> oh :D
[18:39:42] <nubcake_> i immediately thought of nvidia's CUDA
[18:39:47] <nubcake_> dunno why
[18:39:59] <nikre> cuda sounds legit tho but probably overkill
[18:40:20] <nubcake_> would be real-realtime i guess :D
[18:40:39] <nikre> it slices before you present the 3d model :P
[18:40:44] <nubcake_> lol yup
[18:40:57] <JT-Shop> when you do a G0 Z100 why does it move slow?
[18:41:02] <nubcake_> calculates every possible model you could feed to it :'D
[18:42:17] <nubcake_> JT-Shop, did you home all axis first ?
[18:42:24] <JT-Shop> yes
[18:42:48] <nubcake_> hmm.. set the speed to 100% ?
[18:42:54] <JT-Shop> yep
[18:43:16] <nubcake_> weird.. only goes slow on "safe-homing" on my printer
[18:43:39] <nubcake_> any custom start g-code ?
[18:44:27] <pink_vampire> hi
[18:44:32] <nubcake_> hey
[18:44:43] <JT-Shop> in the manual tab
[18:44:48] <pink_vampire> I have some issue with my arduino
[18:44:56] <JT-Shop> custom g code is for a print?
[18:45:15] <nubcake_> yes, for when start the print
[18:45:24] <nubcake_> there's also custom g-code for stopping a print
[18:45:41] <JT-Shop> I assumed G0 is go at maximum speed?
[18:45:53] <nubcake_> it should be
[18:46:22] <pink_vampire> how do I replace the "text" with variable tft.drawString("text",68,6,4);
[18:47:04] <nubcake_> i dont remember where, but i think i read G0 and G1 are the same in repetier-host
[18:48:22] <nubcake_> can't test right now as i'm printing something at the moment, sorry :D
[18:49:34] <JT-Shop> yea seems so I set F2500 and it moves much faster
[18:49:46] <nubcake_> hm ok
[18:50:03] <nubcake_> faster feedrate moves faster, seems legit
[18:50:57] <JT-Shop> I guess G0 G1 are the same
[18:51:18] <nubcake_> i wasn't 100% certain, but i think i read that somewhere online..
[18:51:27] * JT-Shop turns the hat around to the chef bill
[18:51:29] <nubcake_> if it's online, must be true :D
[19:23:13] <yasnak> so tired
[19:23:26] <yasnak> yet this hurricane...idk
[19:39:52] <MacGalempsy_> :) well, the burner manifold would have been finished if I didnt break a 1.8" jobber off...
[19:41:24] <MacGalempsy_> 1/8 that is
[20:15:11] <Erant> MacGalempsy: I try to not use jobbers. I very rarely actually need the length.
[20:26:44] <MacGalempsy> it was 1.5" deep
[20:27:30] <MacGalempsy> tomorrow the mixing manifold should be ready to hookup and test
[20:29:13] <MacGalempsy> Erant: did you see that machine went for $480
[23:14:07] <Cromaglious_> fun... lemme go turn off terthering on my phone
