These are chat archives for machinekit/machinekit
@NeoTech i think the answer you’re looking for is a bit hard to give. The joints-axes that’s in LCNC has not been implemented in Machinekit. The arc-arc blending of the motion is in Machinekit since a few years.
Machinekit forked off aiming to run on multiple platforms and multiple kernels (was only RTAI), but since RT-PREEMPT came out as winner of the kernel wars, that is a bit less important nowadays.
the most important difference IMO is that the HAL has undergone some major work, and the machinetalk middleware has made it possible to run remote UI’s.
Plus the different platforms, like ARM BBB and De0-nano-soc (the FPGA goodies). But don’t forget it also runs on notmal x86 and x64 pc’s.
yes, the realtime playout of motion. I’ve already done work on that.
then there’s the part where ros_control should be the way on how to connect to MK
