    Default AWC708C lite - Advice on setting up

    Hey all,

    Building myself a laser cutter and am at the stage of setting up the controller.

    I have managed to get the home end stops going.

    I am mainly chasing any advice on the motor settings & speeds.

    Firstly, does anyone run microstepping for a laser cutter?
    Also does anyone have advice on the likes of acceleration/jerk.

    Also what speeds would people normally use for cutting, and for engraving?
    So i can set those speeds up when doing my testing.

    I just want to try and set all the mechanicals and do some realistic testing at normal speeds before
    i hook any laser gear up.

    At the moment I have the motors moving, but with horrible jerking. When i jog its pretty harsh on things.

    I'm running 2amp nema 17 motors of TB6600 drives.

    Any advice would be great!

    Default Re: AWC708C lite - Advice on setting up

    The goal is to set it up with the lowest Um/pulse setting possible or the design will get choppy. I don’t think you cant go less than 1 mine is set at 4.07. At 50 if you cut a circle the ends won’t align. This is with a single pulley belt drive. So yes microstep all you can.
