I’m coming from a machine i have that used IPM settings. I want to run in mm/s as most of the 3d printing stuff uses mm.
I’m not to good at math and calculating what settings need to go in appropriate fields. The machine i have should be capable of 100ipm rapids
My setup (the things I know at least)
Motors are 1.8° /200 Steps Per Rev.
motors are direct coupled so ratio is 1:1
Leadscrews are as follows.
z-axis 3/8 12 Tooth per Inch single start.
x&y axis 3/8 12 Tooth per Inch 2 start (IIRC this means its effectively double the speed) so 6 Tpi?
I have my drivers set to 1/16th microstepping.
I want to use mm/s settings so I need help figuring them out.
Steps per revolution:
Distance per Revolution:
I think this will just depend on what my hardware likes, with the above settings I can figure this out I beleive.
Inertia: (what does this mean?)
Acceleration Distance: (is this how fast it reaches max feed rate?)
Start Feedrate: (Dunno what this is)
Any help would be appreciated.March 1, 2017 at 8:37 pm #28714
I think I got it all figured out using some online calculators. Time to go check!March 30, 2017 at 4:36 am #30510
Hi Chris, do you have any info or url that you might share? I am needing to calibrate my machine with eastlcam too.
