I am not fussy.  But, I know that my lead screws can shift a little and I miss steps.  So what ever I use, I would like it to be independent of the drive system.

Looking for a max distance of 48in.  So, I would have to hack apart a big printer/plotter.

Looking for something around 0.2mm (0.01in), or better.   Not bad with electronics and can build up any basic circuit, and cut then needed PCB board.  How about using the sensor from an optical/laser mouse?

Any one know how to build a cheap linear encoder?  Just looking for a simple cheap way to build up a linear encoder.  Ideas?

That worked. I spent a good amount of time tuning the steppers.  Thank you.

When you are trying to build an airfoil and it is based off molds, the quality of the molds is VERY important.  Every defect in the mold is 10X worse in the fiberglass.  So, I care allot about those 0.01% changes.  I would just like to figure out the cause of the slowness.  The CPU is only at 10~14% usage.  Why is the CNC slowing down on the curves?  Is there different driver software that is not effected by lots of little movements?

Inches.  Ummm, Not quite a stealth bomber.  But very close, as I am cutting out wings molds for RC airplanes.  So, no true curves, this is all constant changing curves that cant be represented by G2 and G3, I think.  So I think I am stuck with the slower speeds.  I will live.

All of these movements are X, Y, and some Z movements, No G2, or G3.  I am using MeshCAM to gen my G-Code.  How would I convert  the following G-Code into G2, and G3 moves?   I have no problems writing some code to help with this issue.

Messed with CV and was able to speed things up a bit 40/100.  Any other ideas?
