How are you determining the actual velocity of the rapid moves on the Y axis? Keep in mind that the velocity that is displayed on the Control page is the vector sum of the velocity in all directions, so if you are moving in two directions, the velocity displayed will be greater than the maximum velo...

Re: Deceleration on steppers

First, let me say that you can adjust the distance it takes to accelerate and decelerate by changing the max-acceleration an max-jerk fields on the motor configuration pages. Try increasing each of these by a factor of 10 to see how it reacts. Then, play around with it until you get feel that is com...

This happens because the "dirty' bit gets written by the Raspian Linux system in the Buildbotics Controller but does not clear it. Then, when Windows sees that the "dirty" bit is set, it complains. You should be able to simply ignore the complaint and continue to load the drive on Windows. I am not ...

Re: Wireless connection to the Buildbotics Controller

What version of software are you running? For best results, I recommend upgrading to the latest version of the Buildbotics Controller. As of this writing, that is 0.4.15.
