Back on the z speed topic (sorry I went totally off it into a new one!)

As I understand it all I need to do is change the firmware as follows and re-flash:

From this – #define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {200,200,4535.44,200}
To this – #define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {200,200,2267.72,200}

It will then be possible for the z axis to move at max 17.4mm per second ?
Is there anything I’m missing here ?

Is there also some limiting factor in the acceleration speed ? If so, over what distance are the acceleration speeds applied ?

Would it be possible/easier to change the speed settings using the lcd screen ?

Sorry if these are stupid questions, Im completely new to all this ! I’m absolutely loving the machine though.
