    Hey guys,
    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:

    Maximum Feedrate:
    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.



    I think I got it all figured out using some online calculators. Time to go check!



    Hi Chris, do you have any info or url that you might share? I am needing to calibrate my machine with eastlcam too.

    Thank you.
