Grbl 1.1 Config Documentation

Post by MeanderBolt » Thu Aug 24, 2017 1:08 am

Hey chamnit,
I am on the G1.1 page (the new one) and am in the configuration area near the bottom. There's a paragraph which is not jiving with what I understand the settings to be and was wondering, am I missing something, or is this bad info?

"Tweak your $11x acceleration and $12x max rate settings to improve performance. Set to no greater than 80% of absolute max to account for inertia and cutting forces. Set your $13x max travel settings if you plan on using homing or soft limits. It's recommended to enter something approximately close to actual travel now to avoid problems in the future."

It should be $110-112 and $120-122 respectively, correct?

I am just getting my machine back up and running again and am trying to squash some problems I am having with the update. I am not sure what documentation to trust right now.
