Spindle speed
« on: March 27, 2015, 05:40:22 AM »
Hi all

Is there anyway to link spindle speed to movement velocity?

I'm using mach3 to control a cnc quilting machine and now I'm going use the spindle to drive the sewing machine motor. Varying spindle speed along with motion speed varies the stitch length.

Ideally I'd like the spindle speed to increase ( or decrease) as the motion (x&y) speed increases.

I'm using another stepper as the spindle.
Also not sure about settings to get true rpm. Normal steppers are 200 per rev so do what settings do I us?


Thanks Dave
