I have velocity setup at 375 on all axis's. Acceleration setup at 20 and step and pulse setup at 3.Since i have no clue  as to what i'm doing is this acceptable for long term use or should i make some changes?Running pretty fast and stopping on a dime .Can i push on it even further?   Thanks for any and all input!                                          


Oh yes and why is it maxxing out at 375 on the velocity setting?

Hello

What software are you talking about ? Mach3 ?

Velocity and acceleration are dependent of your mechanics & motors.

On my BZT PFE500PX, velocity is set to 8000mm/min (315 IPM) and acceleration is set to 500mm/s² (19.Cool for XY (velocity = 2500mm/min for Z)

The step & pulse setup is dependent of your drivers, on mine, only 4 is working for both (M542)

Ah yes i am talking about mach 3 i realize now i put this in the wrong place.Sorry!! Well anyway why is mach 3 limiting me to a maximum of 375 for velocity? Looks like i need to do some more reading about gecko 201x as far as step and pulse setup.

The max velocity is depending of the step per of an axis and the kernel speed that is set for the kernel. (at least with // port)

If you increase the kernel speed (Mach3 must be re started) higher velocity can be reached. (or if you decrease step per)
