[16:10:37] <jepler> cradek: is [TRAJ]MAX_VELOCITY for the maximum to show on the jog rate slider, or is it also used by the planner?
[16:13:59] <awallin> I think traj max_vel should be the maximum tool velocity (length of vel vector). so it can be larger than any single axis max_vel
[16:14:10] <awallin> but I don't know if it's used in the planner...
[16:24:53] <SWPadnos> my understanding is that the planner uses programmed vel, [AXIS]maxvel, and [TRAJ]maxvel, in that order
[17:33:21] <cradek> jepler: it's used to limit the tooltip velocity
[17:33:37] <cradek> jepler: so it's only partly appropriate for the jog slider max

[18:32:07] <SWPadnos> jepler, that looks fantastic!
[18:32:12] <cradek> whee!
[18:32:48] <jepler> the .ini and .hal files look OK but I'm just certain they're wrong
[18:33:10] <jepler> I haven't actually tried them, of course
[18:37:30] <jepler> (added samples to that page)
[18:40:45] <SWPadnos> POSITION_FEEDBACK has a typo
[18:41:02] <SWPadnos> position_feedgback
[18:41:48] <SWPadnos> BASE_PERIOD is longer than SERVO_PERIOD - maybe an issue with an extra factor of 1000 (us vs. ns)
[18:51:06] <jepler> SWPadnos: noted, thanks
[18:51:17] <SWPadnos> no - thank you (really)
[18:51:19] <jepler> * jepler heads off to play some video games
[18:51:23] <SWPadnos> have fun :)
[21:14:26] <jepler> for step waveform timings, I thought of listing the following for presets: Gecko, L297, PMDX-150, Xylotex. Anyone else know of drivers common enough to warrant mention? (Sherline's own?)
[21:48:38] <Skullworks-PGAB> PIC-Step?
[21:50:06] <skunkworks> emc setup wizard
[23:26:06] <jepler> jmkasunich: thanks for your response to todd b.
[23:27:32] <jmkasunich> you're welcome
