SmoothStepper USB / New SS user seeking Mach info
« on: January 26, 2010, 05:39:47 PM »
Hello All,

I,ve just recieved my SS. . . . Installed and working no problems.

Got a few Q's that i,m unclear on regarding Mach wonder if somebody would be kind enough to clear them up. ( I have tried to find out looking at other post's but no joy!!)

#1 What do i set the kernal freq to in mach, i think i've read some where that you leave it set at 25khz. .? is this correct and does changeing it have any affect to SS.?

#2  In the SS config plug, regarding Max step freq. Do i just set this to a freq higher than i,m likely to use or his there some calculation to workout the right setting, also what about the controller Freq setting again do i just pick a middle of the road setting or can it be calculated.?

I,m using a laptop and steppers, sorry if this is not enough info but i'm quit new to cnc and still learning so please ask for any info that you may need.

Any other tips etc to get the best out of a SS.?
