I see that there are no replies, so I'm guessing I didn't phrase my question very well.
I'll try again.
1. I want the machine to finish its work as quickly as possible.
2. The maximum speed it will move at is dictated by the material being cut, among other parameters.
The question is how to calculate an optimal (or close) acceleration or ramp up profile for the motor. I did some reading and understand that one thing that needs to be measured is the resonance frequency. Does any one have any experience with that?
How do people with working machines set their software?
