09:40 AM skunkworks: He was not too happy about it. ;)
09:41 AM SpeedEvil: That would be a neat tool accessory
09:41 AM SpeedEvil: Make a horrible weld, and then grind off a nice 1/4" radius in it, well smoothed and polished
09:41 AM SpeedEvil: This slips over a micrometer shaft.
09:48 AM Loetmichel: SpeedEvil: "grinder and paint makes me the welder i aint!"

01:15 PM jymmmm: The only thing I don't like on it is that it's a plastic shell when the caps blow up inside it =)
01:44 PM andypugh: skunkworks: It would be here: https://hackaday.io/event/171601-ppe-testing-hack-chat (or, at least in a similar place as that is today’s which is due to start soon) https://hackaday.io/event/171601-ppe-testing-hack-chat
01:48 PM jymmmm: andypugh: Yu look a little orange

02:13 PM jymmmm: Loetmichel: WOW, the 15V meanwell is hard to get/find/expensive/scarry seller on amazon https://www.amazon.com/MEAN-WELL-original-LRS-350-15-Switching/dp/B06VYDWKLZ, yet the 24V 350W meanwell is inexpensive and easy to aquire https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VRK86SP/ I really wonder what the difference internally is? Like to be able to convert the common 24V to 15V ---- Specs https://www.meanwell.com/productPdf.aspx?i=435#1
02:24 PM perry_j1987: afternoon guys
02:24 PM perry_j1987: the fusion 360 linuxcnc postprocessor include 4th axis?
02:28 PM skunkworks: andypugh: thanks!
02:28 PM skunkworks: they schedule these things that far out?
02:31 PM andypugh: perry_j1987: There is one that does
02:32 PM perry_j1987: went through and got the latest version and then did the modifications to it to add the a axis
02:32 PM perry_j1987: var aAxis = createAxis({coordinate:0, table:true, axis:[0, 1, 0], range:[-360, 360], preference:1});
02:32 PM perry_j1987:
02:32 PM perry_j1987: edited if( to true)
02:32 PM andypugh: I have forgotten where I got mine from, but it is in “personal posts” so I might have modded it.
02:33 PM perry_j1987: my old one that i had working isnt outputting gcode anymore
02:33 PM perry_j1987: just creates ngc.failed
02:34 PM perry_j1987: if i open it up it appears to have created bunch of gcode but then trunicates
02:34 PM perry_j1987: N2855 X0. A-360.
02:34 PM perry_j1987: !Error: Failed to post data.
02:34 PM struf: hey, i have some power supply from D-Link router, rated 5V and 2A, will i burn my mesa 7i96 if i use that?
02:35 PM W1N9Zr0: the tormach fusion postproc can do 4th axis. you need to configure it for the rotary orientation (X+/X-/Y+/Y-), and it always outputs rotary as A instead of A/B based on orientation
02:41 PM veegee: XXCoder I'm teefin' that and posting it on reddit
02:41 PM XXCoder: lol
02:43 PM perry_j1987: Error: REWIND: Rewind of machine is required for simultaneous multi-axis toolpath and has been disabled.
02:47 PM pcw_home: struf: Just check that it puts out 5V with no load and it should be fine
02:52 PM struf: pcw_home: ok, thank you!
02:54 PM pcw_home: also for safety its better to ground the 5V common on 2 wire power supplies
02:54 PM pcw_home: (2 wire AC)
02:59 PM veegee: Worth getting a 4000 psi argon tank and a CGA 680 regulator?
02:59 PM veegee: Refill costs are more than the cost of the gas itself
