12:01 AM Sabotend_ is now known as Sabotender
12:06 AM _unreal_: ve7it, ish
12:06 AM _unreal_: btw I as of 5 seconds ago got the bldc to spin using that motor controller
12:06 AM _unreal_: not very powerful clearly its out of order
12:06 AM _unreal_: and not spinning fast but IT IS working
12:06 AM _unreal_: well 1am I'm off to bed
12:06 AM _unreal_: got some shipping to do in the morning
12:17 AM ve7it: cool ttyl
12:53 AM Sabotend_ is now known as Sabotender
02:40 AM Deejay: moin
05:03 AM XXCoder: project binky: "bracket needs a bracket"

07:18 AM Tom_L: morning
07:31 AM Tom_L: 34F, Lo 28
07:37 AM Tom_L: jthornton, did you get your bp gui back to working?
07:38 AM jthornton: yea Curt fixed qtpyvcp
07:38 AM Tom_L: did they get the install package workin ok?
07:38 AM jthornton: dunno
07:41 AM mr_boo: i've abandoned the idea to build me a cnc and am considering to buy one instead
07:43 AM mr_boo: is the Stepmores SM-4040 a good choice?
07:43 AM jthornton: link
07:44 AM mr_boo: http://www.stepmores.com/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=31&id=47
07:45 AM Tom_L: uses mach3
07:46 AM Tom_L: ball screw and square rails is a plus
07:46 AM mr_boo: i'm intrested in a high precicion cnc
07:46 AM jthornton: you could throw the crappy control away
07:46 AM Tom_L: small work area
07:46 AM jthornton: yea ball screws and linear rails is a plus
07:47 AM Tom_L: if you were looking for 'high precision' you wouldn't be looking on alibaba
07:47 AM Tom_L: they're chinaco precision
07:48 AM Tom_L: with that said, i'm happy with my chinaco parts
07:48 AM Tom_L: i'm not building parts for spacex
07:48 AM Tom_L: (my kids are)
07:49 AM mr_boo: at the $2000 price range the precision should be much better than low budget or DIY cnc i believe
07:50 AM Tom_L: i paid that or more 30+ yrs ago for a sherline
07:50 AM Tom_L: why is $$$ related to precision?
07:52 AM mr_boo: i just assume that those with higher precision also cost more
07:54 AM Tom_L: at least they're not using allthread from the hardware store for screws
07:54 AM jthornton: lol
09:33 AM gregcnc: well finally fuel trims are where they should be, in the end it turned out to be a failing MAF
09:38 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: failing how?
09:38 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: and glad you resolved the issue
09:38 AM gregcnc: under reporting
09:39 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: as in intermittant? or lower than they should be?
09:39 AM gregcnc: lower than expected values
09:40 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: What was the originall issues/problems?
09:41 AM gregcnc: lean codes, crazy high short term fuel trim, low power, rough starting but no misfire
09:41 AM gregcnc: power wasn't terrible.
09:42 AM gregcnc: drove the car with MAF disconnected and saw O2 performing as expected, good power STFT normal under cruise
09:42 AM jymmmm: STFT ?
09:42 AM gregcnc: short term fuel trim
09:43 AM gregcnc: cleaning MAF also helped slightly
09:43 AM jymmmm: I have no codes, just getting poor mileage and lose of power, like I'm driving a 4cyl instead of a 8 cyl
09:44 AM jymmmm: I tried cleaning the MAF, it sorta kinda I think helped, but didn't last long. The fuel injection cleaning sorta helped, but again, didn't last long.
09:44 AM jymmmm: I might just toss the MAF in the ultrasonic cleaner, or just get a $25 new aftermarket
09:45 AM gregcnc: have you watched O2?
09:45 AM jymmmm: PRE-CAT, yes
09:45 AM jymmmm: https://i.imgur.com/JwCBnNx.png
09:45 AM gregcnc: also check downstream
09:45 AM _unreal_: nifty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD_3_gsgsnk
09:46 AM jymmmm: https://i.imgur.com/M1NGGZf.png
09:46 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: I did look at post-cats, nothing stood out
09:47 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: I have four O2 sensors
09:47 AM gregcnc: I didn't know what I was looking at before. with the two banks have very different fuel trims i think you have an O2 on the way out.
09:47 AM p0g0: jymmmm, got mechanical lifters on that 4 cylinder, if so, have you adjusted them then timed the engine? Copmression is another thing to check.
09:47 AM gregcnc: MAF alone would show both banks wth similar trims (assuming nothing on a bank was giving trouble)
09:48 AM gregcnc: did post cat switch or settle at ~.7?
09:48 AM jymmmm: p0g0: it's a 8cyl ACTING like a 4cyl
09:48 AM p0g0: yet worse, but the same question.
09:48 AM jymmmm: IDK
09:49 AM gregcnc: no cost test at this point is to swap upstream O2 between banks and see if trims follow the sensors
09:49 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: That's gonna suck, cause changing the O2 sensor is a BITCH
09:50 AM gregcnc: that sucks. mine took 10 minutes for both
09:50 AM jymmmm: IT's in a vERY tight location
09:50 AM p0g0: If an engine is not inhaling equal fuel/air volumes in the cylinders, it cannot run evenly, nor at it's best.
09:50 AM p0g0: a first rule of engines...
09:51 AM gregcnc: yes all this diagnosis depends on only one fault
09:51 AM gregcnc: start with the cheapest tests/parts
09:52 AM gregcnc: I had an extra set of O2 and injectors to play with and they are quick swaps
09:53 AM gregcnc: You already checked plugs for condition and indication of problems?
09:54 AM gregcnc: next would be compression test if you have a tester
09:54 AM SpeedEvil: Also stuff like air filter
09:54 AM gregcnc: air filter won't cause one bank to go lean/rich
09:55 AM SpeedEvil: Ah - I diddn't read it in full.
09:55 AM gregcnc: mine was both banks with similar fuel trims
09:55 AM SpeedEvil: just 'loss of power'
10:05 AM jymmmm: I could try to unplug the MAF and see what if anything changes.
10:06 AM _unreal_: I got one of my bldc motors spinnning
10:07 AM jymmmm: _unreal_: congrats
10:07 AM _unreal_: over payed for some dirt cheap bldc controllers from china
10:08 AM _unreal_: I have other plans for the controllers but I was hopping it would be interesting to see what I can do with them
10:08 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: No, I haven't checked the plugs since I last changed them maybe 30K miles ago
10:08 AM _unreal_: I'm waiting for a responce right now from the MFG. they seem to have ramping. I don tknow if that is because of the way the speed contol is working?
10:08 AM _unreal_: currently I'm just using the POT to control the speed of the motor
10:09 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: No compression gauge, and not sure what/how I'm looking for other than consistancy betweeen cyl
10:09 AM gregcnc: plugs are first stage of diagnosis.
10:09 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: and a fauled plug can cause loss of power?
10:10 AM jymmmm: and poor mileage?
10:10 AM jymmmm: fowled?
10:12 AM gregcnc: O2 readings are an average of 4 cylinders. so a weak cylinder can throw off a bank. plugs can show problem cylinders
10:22 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: front passengar side sensor https://i.imgur.com/kXYYVZg.png
10:22 AM jymmmm: doable, but a bitch
10:27 AM gregcnc: from YT is seems like reaching the connector is the hard part
10:28 AM jymmmm: Yeah
10:29 AM gregcnc: what do fuel trims look like cruising?
10:29 AM gregcnc: what are long term fuel trims?
10:30 AM gregcnc: Is it reaching normal temperature?
10:31 AM gregcnc: is it running closed loop?
10:32 AM gregcnc: exhaust leaks also influence O2 sensors
10:33 AM gregcnc: the trims really aren't that bad according to posts about your engine
10:33 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "fuel trims"
10:34 AM jymmmm: Mine is the 4.2L
10:34 AM gregcnc: still ±5% is small, mine were pegged at 27.3%
10:35 AM gregcnc: what is O2S1 showing?
10:35 AM gregcnc: sorry O2S1 TRIM
10:35 AM jymmmm: https://i.imgur.com/JwCBnNx.png
10:35 AM gregcnc: that one
10:36 AM jymmmm: what about it?
10:36 AM gregcnc: what is it? I assumed this was short term fuel trim
10:37 AM jymmmm: I'm not sure what you are asking, that is a live shot of the pre cat sensors
10:37 AM gregcnc: no
10:37 AM gregcnc: eh
10:37 AM gregcnc: hold on
10:40 AM gregcnc: those may be titania sensors
10:41 AM jymmmm: Deer in headlight look
10:45 AM gregcnc: if that plot is for O2 I have no idea. The fact that si says trim and is % tells me it's fuel trim
10:45 AM gregcnc: you want to find "O2 voltage"
10:46 AM gregcnc: plot all four from a cold start at idle until they are all awake
10:46 AM jymmmm: I can only grab two sensors at a time with this app unless I buy it
10:46 AM jymmmm: then only 4
10:47 AM gregcnc: I can log as many as i want with OBD fusion for 5$
10:47 AM jymmmm: link?
10:47 AM gregcnc: you shoudl have loggin as well
10:47 AM gregcnc: you don't need to watch them live
10:47 AM gregcnc: I used the guages for that
10:49 AM gregcnc: your sensors are zirconia and read voltage between 0 and 0.9V
10:50 AM jymmmm: ok
10:52 AM gregcnc: https://imgur.com/a/EokSBYT
10:52 AM sync: does it burn oil?
10:53 AM jymmmm: sync: no
10:55 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: Whn you buy an app, is it per device or per account?
10:56 AM gregcnc: no idea
10:58 AM gregcnc: now I have to try to figure out why the van uses so much fuel other than the wife wants it to be like florida before she gets in
11:00 AM jymmmm: humid?
11:01 AM jymmmm: This gives me the impression it's per account https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/113410?hl=en&ref_topic=1046717&co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&oco=1
11:01 AM gregcnc: 50°F above ambient temperature min
11:01 AM jymmmm: lol
11:01 AM jymmmm: gregcnc: you poor bastard
11:02 AM jymmmm: I just have extra blankets in the car for that
11:02 AM gregcnc: I use a block heater, but
11:03 AM gregcnc: she lets me keep machines in the garage where her car used to be....
11:03 AM sync: diesel parking heater
11:03 AM gregcnc: would be nice
11:03 AM sync: just retrofit one
11:03 AM gregcnc: if the gas version was more common in the use I'd find one cheap and put it in the 330 for her.
11:04 AM gregcnc: california car doesn't even have heated seats
11:04 AM sync: the gas ones are about the same
11:04 AM gregcnc: fortunately it warms up fast
11:25 AM SpeedEvil: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WAB5cflHBI&t=220s - on Cal fires causes. - I hadn't realised the lines were getting that badly neglected.
11:31 AM tiwake: jymmmm: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/576778798905819156/655459597947109386/20191214_0004.jpg
11:31 AM tiwake: since you were asking about it
01:39 PM _unreal_: ve7it, item has been shipped as of 10min ago
01:39 PM ve7it: cool... thankyou
01:41 PM _unreal_: $50
01:41 PM _unreal_: not to bad
01:42 PM _unreal_: ve7it, check msg
02:12 PM p0g0: SpeedEvil, an old friend of mine: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/22/us/survivors-california-wildfires.html We worked a newspaper together. I know a bunch of folks burned out of Paradise & Santa Rosa. I have kin that lived in San Bruno, just next to where the PG&E gas mains blew... I am not surprised.
02:13 PM SpeedEvil: I kind of assumed it was lack of trimming trees that was the proximal cause.
02:13 PM _unreal_: san bruno or San burno ;)
02:13 PM _unreal_: SpeedEvil, libs refusing to LET trees be cut back
02:13 PM SpeedEvil: Not leaving hooks alone so long that the thing hung on them cut the hook off through normal wear and tear
02:17 PM p0g0: _unreal_, get real- the place is a tinderbox, the state law prevents insurance based on projections,only the past rates, so in times of change, they can't. The same thinking applies to the public service folks, and that has to change. A decent chunk of the state is already uninsurable, and likely never will be again.
02:19 PM p0g0: The retro thinking that led to stuff like, mm let me see if I recall the #s right, Prop 13, that limited property taxes, that same shortsightedness combined with the, even to me, surprising rate of change- it's way bigger than some tree hugger.
02:20 PM _unreal_: shortsighted? lol hardly. Planned outcome
02:20 PM p0g0: If tree huggers had anything like that power, they'd have been a way more meaningful political force.
02:21 PM p0g0: The states insurance industry, in the last 2 years, lost 25 years of profits.
02:21 PM p0g0: Those boys are the best we've got for crystal ball stuff.
02:21 PM p0g0: The really don't like to lose money.
02:21 PM p0g0: So, yeah, shortsighted and unforeseen.
02:23 PM p0g0: Calfornia state schools, k-12 went from #2 in the nation to near the middle in the last 30 years. The state has been nickle and diming itself at every turn.
02:24 PM p0g0: The roads in much of the state are not in the quality of repair I recall from the 1960s & 70s.
02:35 PM jdh: and keep off my lawn!
03:12 PM ve7it: _unreal_, sent you an email
04:15 PM Deejay: gn8
04:28 PM jymmmm: p0g0: If the California lottry money actually went to the schools probably wouldn't be so bad
04:29 PM p0g0: hehe, iirc, of all the states that made that promise when they started lotteries, _none_ have stuck to it.
04:29 PM p0g0: Here in the US
04:29 PM jymmmm: yep
04:30 PM p0g0: The next seated state House of Representatives just cannot resist that candy jar.
04:30 PM p0g0: No matter what promises the prior ones made.
04:31 PM JT-Shop: damn finally got that PIA part made from gummy architectural aluminum done
04:34 PM jymmmm: JT-Shop: woohoo
04:41 PM jymmmm: Man, I wanted my $15 welder =(
04:45 PM JT-Shop: what happened?
05:12 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop don't like machining bubblegum?
05:17 PM XXCoder: butteralloy is fun
05:19 PM CaptHindsight: hate it when it sticks to the mill
05:19 PM jthornton: I think I cranked the rpm up a bit too high
05:22 PM CaptHindsight: works better if you flood cool
05:22 PM jthornton: coolant == None on the BP knee mill
05:22 PM CaptHindsight: I have had it weld to the end mill
05:23 PM CaptHindsight: seems fine at first then, it starts to wander
05:23 PM CaptHindsight: shut it down and theres a nice blob where the cuttings edges should be
05:25 PM Tom_L: higher copper content
05:25 PM Tom_L: i think
05:26 PM Tom_L: that would explain it cause copper is crap to machine too
05:26 PM _unreal_: ve7it, recived an email
05:26 PM _unreal_: heh
05:26 PM CaptHindsight: almost as bad as thermoplastics
05:27 PM _unreal_: well that was interesting. my father just informed me that his doctor called him telling him that his blood work has come back and he needs to get to a hospital ASAP and get a transfusion...
05:28 PM XXCoder: that dont sound good
05:28 PM _unreal_: nope
05:28 PM _unreal_: soo.... who knows
05:28 PM _unreal_: I hate to sound cold but I was a nurse for so many years.. "health issues" dont really phase me any more..
05:29 PM XXCoder: heh its same but inverse for me
05:29 PM XXCoder: me having new health issues is just yawm
05:29 PM XXCoder: because I have had new issues seemly each year
05:35 PM _unreal_: sigh
05:35 PM _unreal_: and i'm 40
05:35 PM _unreal_: I can hardly wait for my turn
05:35 PM XXCoder: nice
05:35 PM _unreal_: then again every one tells me I look like I'm 25
05:35 PM XXCoder: I started having issues when I was at zero years old
05:35 PM _unreal_: zero ehhh... shit would have assume you'd have made it to at least .1
05:35 PM _unreal_: !!!!!!! any one seen my rum and coke? SHIT where did it go
05:36 PM _unreal_: anemia, hypoglycemia and on nad on
05:37 PM _unreal_: no milk right as rain
05:37 PM _unreal_: infact most of the world is allergic to milk and they just dont know it.
05:38 PM XXCoder: ouch
05:38 PM XXCoder: milk is mostly ok, just causes dirrehea because I dont drink milk a lot.
05:38 PM XXCoder: maybe 2 gallons a year
05:38 PM _unreal_: heh
05:38 PM _unreal_: I'd be lucky to get a 10th of that
06:39 PM jymmmm: jthornton: Teh seller of the $11 welder is no longer a registered ebay user.
06:40 PM jymmmm: Then CaptHindsight found a $15 welder, so just keeping eyes on that
06:43 PM XXCoder: $15 welder?
06:43 PM XXCoder: isnt it usually like $100 or more?
06:43 PM jymmmm: XXCoder: https://www.ebay.com/itm/MTS-205-Amp-MIG-Wire-Feed-Welder-Flux-Cored-Wire-TIG-Stick-Arc-DC-Combo-Welding/401995868880
06:43 PM XXCoder: hats just crazy
06:44 PM XXCoder: couple tools there is easily 15
06:44 PM jymmmm: I"m just not sure what the scam is.
06:44 PM XXCoder: let alone the main thing
06:44 PM XXCoder: feedback is 6 months or older all except 2
06:45 PM XXCoder: stolen account?
06:45 PM XXCoder: uh
06:45 PM XXCoder: jy look at items being sold
06:45 PM jymmmm: I dont think so, it seems it's consistant sellers. They have lots of old positive feedback
06:46 PM XXCoder: crystal necklaces. all of em
06:46 PM XXCoder: I mean, literally
06:46 PM XXCoder: it could be fake item for feedback cramming or maybe it was necklace account that was sold or stolen
06:47 PM XXCoder: and now selling welder yeahh
06:47 PM jymmmm: Yep, it's like they sold a cheap item got ostive feedback, and now cheap high priced items
06:48 PM jymmmm: But, they will never get to keep the money, so what is the scam?
06:48 PM XXCoder: 6 month pause is to wait for items to roll off
06:48 PM XXCoder: so we cant see prices it was sold for
06:49 PM XXCoder: no, ebay changed apparently
06:49 PM jymmmm: search ebay for "MTS-205", lots of them cheap
06:49 PM XXCoder: its $5 necklaces
06:49 PM jymmmm: and all the things they sold are cheap $5 items and over half a year old
06:50 PM XXCoder: looking at $23 ones
06:50 PM XXCoder: essentally same pattern
06:50 PM XXCoder: shirts this time
06:51 PM jymmmm: Yep
06:51 PM jymmmm: or board shorts
06:51 PM XXCoder: the $15 one forgot to delete item lol
06:51 PM XXCoder: so we can still see what prices was
06:51 PM XXCoder: oops shorts yes
06:52 PM XXCoder: yep total bull
06:58 PM jymmmm: XXCoder: But, what is the scam????
06:58 PM XXCoder: money and no ship I bet
06:58 PM XXCoder: its just starting but im betting nobody will get anything
06:58 PM XXCoder: or maybe brick in package
06:58 PM XXCoder: or lol picture of the welder. (remembered that old scam)
07:55 PM _unreal_: slow day today I guess
08:37 PM jymmmm: XXCoder: I don't think that's what it is, maybe a way to get valid email addresses?
08:38 PM XXCoder: thats possible also
08:52 PM _unreal_: interesting
08:53 PM XXCoder: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000282551930.html interesting
08:53 PM XXCoder: if I was into making electrics I would get it to try it
08:54 PM _unreal_: yep serves me right
08:54 PM _unreal_: I plugged the network cable into my desktop/CAD computer and forgot to unplug it
08:55 PM _unreal_: winblows did an other FORCED update and I lost my cad drawing again
08:55 PM XXCoder: its trojan'd?
08:55 PM Tom_L: gotta love the cloud
09:04 PM beachbumpete1: Hwy guys whatsup?
09:04 PM Tom_L: just chillin tonight
09:05 PM beachbumpete1: Hey ttom
09:05 PM beachbumpete1: man I am strugglin over here
09:06 PM beachbumpete1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-RSm97lkOU
09:06 PM beachbumpete1: I wanted to try to 3d Print a set of these for my office desk at work
09:06 PM beachbumpete1: cant seem to find the file
09:06 PM beachbumpete1: his link is broken or something because it asks for a login on my end
09:07 PM beachbumpete1: I searched thingiverse for something like it
09:07 PM beachbumpete1: but the ones there do not seem as nicely modeled and more importantly they are cut up for smaller printers
09:08 PM beachbumpete1: and I SUCK at mending shit back together so far in fusion360
09:08 PM XXCoder: Password - 894567
09:08 PM beachbumpete1: wjere did you get that?
09:08 PM XXCoder: youtube
09:09 PM XXCoder: works. didnt download because speakers is useless for me
09:09 PM beachbumpete1: not working for me
09:10 PM beachbumpete1: you sure its 849567
09:10 PM XXCoder: erm wha
09:10 PM XXCoder: its 894567
09:11 PM beachbumpete1: son of a bitch
09:11 PM beachbumpete1: it worked
09:11 PM beachbumpete1: where did you find that code
09:11 PM XXCoder: youtube
09:11 PM beachbumpete1: yeah where on youtube?
09:11 PM XXCoder: its in discription, right below link
09:11 PM beachbumpete1: hahahahaha
09:11 PM beachbumpete1: I did not even see that shit
09:12 PM beachbumpete1: thank you man I must be blind
09:12 PM XXCoder: no plm
09:16 PM beachbumpete1: noiw lets see if I can print this damn thing....
09:16 PM beachbumpete1: thanks again man I apprecaite it
09:17 PM XXCoder: it looks interesting, I'd make it if I could hear lol
09:18 PM beachbumpete1: Oh thats right I forget
09:19 PM beachbumpete1: Why is it whenever I bring stuff into fusion is it huge? I am sure it is a metric conversion thing but it would be nice if I could sort that
09:20 PM XXCoder: if it is just divide by number
09:20 PM XXCoder: forgot what it was tho lol
09:21 PM XXCoder: dont fusion have "this part uses X units" when importing?
09:21 PM XXCoder: ie inch or mm
09:22 PM beachbumpete1: yeah I guess it does what is the inverse of the conversion equation /25.4?
09:22 PM XXCoder: just do recopial
09:24 PM beachbumpete1: actually I just re inserted it and selected mm
09:24 PM beachbumpete1: now it looks right
09:24 PM XXCoder: yeah more accurate
09:25 PM beachbumpete1: I have not printed anything in awhile and I forgot all of how to do it LOL
09:26 PM Tom_L: you didn't scale it, you'd have a speaker enclosure that wouldn't fit on your desk
09:26 PM beachbumpete1: sure as hell would
09:27 PM Tom_L: might be awesome if you had a speaker to fit it
09:29 PM beachbumpete1: wondering what his settings were
09:30 PM beachbumpete1: he said 30 percemt infill but the faces look solid
09:30 PM Tom_L: it's hollow isn't it?
09:30 PM beachbumpete1: yeah the shell is but the body walls are thicker
09:30 PM beachbumpete1: ish
09:30 PM Tom_L: i'd want the shell fairly solid
09:30 PM Tom_L: oh

09:31 PM Tom_L: i don't own a 3d printer :)
09:31 PM Tom_L: 30% sounds reasonable
09:31 PM Tom_L: how thick are the walls?
09:33 PM beachbumpete1: Looks like just under a qyartet inch
09:34 PM beachbumpete1: Im thinking .2 should be okay for layer no? talking to the 3d print guys in here LOL
09:35 PM Tom_L: well, each side of the shell will be solid so 30% between should be ok i'd think

09:40 PM Tom_L: all you need on that link is the first line up to the .html btw
09:40 PM Tom_L: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32608723996.html
09:40 PM beachbumpete1: LOL are they 4 inch:
09:40 PM beachbumpete1: yeah sorry
09:41 PM Tom_L: i think the dash mount bostons were too iirc
09:41 PM Tom_L: had a 10 behind the seat
09:41 PM Tom_L: sounded better than most 12-15's at the time
09:43 PM beachbumpete1: Ok lemme fire thjs bitch up and see how it goes
10:35 PM beachbumpete1: well first layers are down so far so good :)
10:38 PM XXCoder: :)
10:45 PM beachbumpete1: I hope this turns out good it would be nice to have a neat set of speakers on the desk
10:45 PM Tom_L: multi color print
10:45 PM XXCoder: im still waiting for obsidian printer
10:46 PM XXCoder: once done im using free echo dot I got from work into gramphone
10:46 PM XXCoder: because why not
10:46 PM beachbumpete1: I wish I could figure out a way to make the text in the quassel input window larger.
10:47 PM beachbumpete1: I can hardly see it even tho I have 32" monitors here LOL
10:47 PM XXCoder: fancy
10:48 PM beachbumpete1: I finally upgraded my bedroom/studio setup with some larger screens and an up graded pd
10:48 PM beachbumpete1: whats weird is you can magnify the chat view but not the input window
10:49 PM XXCoder: i use hexchat for irc
10:49 PM XXCoder: dunno if input changes with font choices. lemme test
10:49 PM XXCoder: yep it does
10:50 PM XXCoder: hack 54 heh huge font
11:00 PM beachbumpete1: I have used hexvhat before
11:00 PM beachbumpete1: hexchat
11:03 PM beachbumpete1: hey I got it to change font so now I can read what the hell I am typing LOL
11:05 PM beachbumpete1: I was trying to model the nautilus shape earlier in Fusion360 before I got the file downloaded
11:06 PM XXCoder: nice
11:06 PM XXCoder: I guess it'd be easier in openscad
11:06 PM XXCoder: mathically do spirl
11:08 PM beachbumpete1: well I was using the coil feature
11:09 PM beachbumpete1: if you use a triangular profile and make a coil you can delete the body after projecting the shape for sketch use
11:09 PM beachbumpete1: then once you get the spiral you can make some geometry for a loft
11:10 PM beachbumpete1: I made about a dozen different nautilus shapes but could not figure out how to get the edges to touch to create that nautilus effect
11:11 PM XXCoder: I guess by adjusting some parameter
11:16 PM beachbumpete1: I swear I tweaked every parameter and lofted it quite a few times. The center circle just never looked right
11:17 PM XXCoder: odd. well in least you got orginial file now
11:18 PM beachbumpete1: I am sure some combination would have resulted in the proper shape but I did not have it in me I guess hehe
11:19 PM XXCoder: heh yeah some stuff have so large solution space
11:19 PM XXCoder: hard to find one
11:37 PM Tom_itx is now known as Tom_L
11:58 PM beachbumpete1: Thanks for the help guys goodnight :)
