Re: LinuxCNC

Hi Kinsa, Thanks again for your advise. For the spindle pwm signal, I should have more faith and read more carefully the message trail, sorry about that. I did also a bit of code reading (firmware and driver) and I understand now just enough how it works to fit the *.hal file to my environment. I de...

Re: LinuxCNC

Hi Kansa, Many thanks for your fast answer and suggestions. I did a quick test with the RPi2 (1.1 of April 10, 2015) image on the Optr.link repository. This appears to be built on Debian (that is OK), I had to install the PICNC drivers and the MF70 files. To be short: it works now. The status led no...

Re: LinuxCNC

Hi Kinsa, and everyone, I am afraid I need your help, as I am a bit stuck for the moment. I just finished my own PICNC-V2 hardware and flashed the firmware. Then I made a clean install on a RasPi2 of Rasbian Jessie, RT-PREEMT, PICNC driver and Machinekit as per the instructions in this forum of Marc...

Re: LinuxCNC

Dear wire, Many thanks for the reply, it will certainly serve as a source of inspiration. I will most probably make my own hardware, my driver electronics is working ok and I just need the PICnc circuit between it and the RPI. I succesfully compiled the firmware using the MPIDE compiler as you descr...

Re: LinuxCNC

Hello everyone, Very cool project, splitting the fast real time routines of LinuxCNC into a separate hardware entity is in my humble opinion the way to go, especially if one could circumvent the need of the now really deprecated parallel port. Especially also as the hardware is just a handful of com...
