02:16 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tiwake: new old type of user interface maybe?
02:16 PM tiwake[m]: ..?
02:17 PM tiwake[m]: I think the issue is that the STL file had several solids in it

02:18 PM CaptHindsight[m]: which application are you using?
02:18 PM tiwake[m]: freecad
02:19 PM CaptHindsight[m]: a little buggy as well, I know they are talking about lots of cleanups
02:20 PM CaptHindsight[m]: make the code easier to debug, at least for Path
02:23 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://github.com/Deotti-cl/linuxcnc-esp32 is getting some attention \o/
02:25 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Goi4YVU0js
04:18 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 3 year old Ryzen hardware is too new for the debian Installer kernel on 2.8.2 and they way they configure X
04:53 PM CaptHindsight[m]: AMD Vega graphics are also too new for these kernels
04:54 PM CaptHindsight[m]: nomodeset gets the desktop working
05:17 PM JT-Shop: I was thinking of getting a new Mini-ITX motherboard but the CPU choices are so many now
05:34 PM tiwake[m]: ryzen
05:37 PM JT-Shop: lol newegg now has half of their stuff ships from china
05:39 PM CaptHindsight[m]: it was easier to install on older hardware and then move the drive over to the new
05:40 PM CaptHindsight[m]: i think i did 9 or 10 installs yesterday
05:41 PM CaptHindsight[m]: all different hardware
05:44 PM JT-Shop: ah well it's time to tuck the chickens in and read them a bedtime story

05:48 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Ryzen7 have been under 10uS with other RTAI kernels
05:49 PM JT-Cave: what about rt preempt?
05:54 PM CaptHindsight[m]: running right now on the Ryzen3 the preempt-rt is at 40uS
05:54 PM CaptHindsight[m]: been running for the past few hours
05:54 PM JT-Cave: that's pretty good
05:55 PM CaptHindsight[m]: with youtubes playing for an hour
05:58 PM CaptHindsight[m]: now the fun begins, attaching them to actual mechanisms
05:59 PM CaptHindsight[m]: there are several more videos on youtube about building epoxy granite machine frames
06:00 PM CaptHindsight[m]: gave me an idea of how to dumb it down to make it more foolproof
06:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: you really can't expect people to mill the rails square and flat after it sets
06:02 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkGdJMVJ1Fc
06:06 PM JT-Cave: yuck too much camera movement lol

06:53 PM t4nk_freenode: my 'machine' is patched up again ;)
06:54 PM t4nk_freenode: I printed a new top fan for the spindle too... the original one is horribly out of balance
06:56 PM t4nk_freenode: the new one will surely have a better air flow, though I hope I can get it on there straight
07:05 PM t4nk_freenode: it was kind of nice to see where all the hurt went, from all the accidents and crashes the machine ha
07:05 PM t4nk_freenode: d
07:06 PM t4nk_freenode: it also probably shows why it will be only a matter of time before it gets sloppy again
08:30 PM _unreal_: sup
08:38 PM * t4nk_freenode locks _unreal_ onto his 4th axis and tattoos 'I love mum' on his belly
