Help with calc/settings

Post by awesomename » Sun Mar 23, 2014 1:13 am

I know what I need to put in for most of the noble belt calc site but some of them I'm not sure of. I can't seem to find the answers in the wiki

Can someone run it through with my info and take a screenshot and post it for me to copy?

The other question I have is, when it shows the feed rate of mm/min. IS my g code going to over ride this during a run of a program? Is this the maximum feed rate that the grblshield will allow?

I have a gshield v5
Uno controller
The nema 23 from inventables for the x and y
and a nema 17 on the z axis. Im using the gt2 20tooth pulleys

This is what I have so far.

Thanks guys

Yes, any value in the G-code will over-ride the default.

For the rest, I'm not seeing anything in your configuration which would need to be changed from the typical values as suggested as suggested in the 3 (or more?) places that various versions of them are posted:

http://docs.shapeoko.com/software.html
http://docs.shapeoko.com/helloworld.html

I guess we need to go through those and normalize _all_ of the values.

FWIW, the 39.9696230864543 value is a result of rounding from converting the metric pulley values to Imperial and then back --- please use the 40 (as calculated) or 40.20 (estimated belt stretch?) values.
