I’ll be having a solo show in the downstairs space at The Mission gallery in 2014 (dates TBA).
Palimpsest has just been accepted on the “arts track” at the 8th International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction, taking place January 2014 in Munich.
- sudo reboot
- sudo shutdown -h now
- ssh [yourip] -l pi replace bracketed text with the Pi’s IP address
- mv one.txt two.txt changes the name of one.txt to two.txt
- cp /home/pi/one.txt /home move one.txt from pi directory to home directory
- sudo raspi-config pick option 4 to set timezone
These are working notes – stay tuned for a more complete tutorial.
- Set the digital model in negative Z territory. This means you’ll be zeroing the relative position of the machine Z to the top of your stock to be cut.
- Load the tool library instead of defining tools from scratch.
- When you’re ready to post, make sure that the Laguna post-processor is selected.
- The .nc file must be renamed to .prg. Don’t bother trying to do this while posting, as RhinoCAM will just add .prg after .nc. Instead, rename the file by right clicking it from the finder. Keep the file name small and descriptive.
- Transfer this file to an empty USB drive.
- Plug the USB drive into the Laguna controller.
- Navigate to the TBA screen and press access USB . Press up and down to find your file, then press copy .
- Remove the USB drive and press access CF card . Navigate to your file.
- Load the first tool you’ll use in the cut. If you’re turning on the machine for the first time of the day, there should be no tool in the spindle. You should see 0 listed under the current tool in the Run screen.
- Enter the MIDI command TXM06 (where X is the number of the tool you want) and pres execute .
- Jog this tool to the stock surface and teach tool length and set tool data . Repeat steps two and three for every tool you plan to use.
- Jog any tool to the spot you want set as the X/Y origin.
- Navigate to the Coordinate screen. Press reset relative then teach zpos .
- Navigate to the Run screen. You should see all zeros on the position display.
Every Monday night in October Dieter Kirkwood and I demonstrated how to “print” two-color digital images on old Brother knitting machines at the Harold Washington Library Innovation Lab. We’ll be making one big quilt out of the student-generated images to hang somewhere in the library.
Fo Wilson and I co-authored a project for 72 Assignments: The Foundation Course in Art and Design Today. Preorder your copy through the Paris College of Art today!
