Reply To: My 5' x 5' build



Ok sounds good… I can probably slowly tighten it as the coating wears off the rails. I sanded them a bit but there is still quite a lot on them.

I tried redrawing the Jets logo I posted the other day… except I bumped the feedrate to 150%… the introduced a lot more shake to the lines. The worst was on the y axis. I think I had the feedrate set for 15mm/s as per the “basics” tutorial. That would make 150% about 21mm/s. Should this machine not be able to meet or exceed those speeds? I thought I saw people milling at 30mm/s. Although that just maybe from the still rough finish on the rails.

Is there a way to make a file that will run the machine in giant circles for several hours to break it in?
