hi Brian,

Move faster: dig into ini, look for MAX_VELOCITY, also review original ini documentation
G-Code : Typical way is to use a CAD program (I use turbo CAD, but there are simpler ones) to create a dxf/dwg, then use a CAM tool (e..g. dxf2gcode) to generate g-code.
I believe dxf2gcode can generate XYUV code.

There are a couple of methods to sync axes. hal is one option. Be aware, you may want to jog your axes still independently.
Another option would be to modify the kinematic.

arcs are not possible with UV. They must be split into small linear segments (like splines).

Gerd,
I am using files for XYUV configuration.
What is the difference/purpose of the XYAB configuration?

XYAB uses axes AB instead of UV.
The reason for it is an old bug of EMC (#2786752), that does not allow jogging in world mode for UVW axes.
arcs are not possible with ABC, as in UVW, in case you think about this.

Gerd,
I probably will switch to AB then, no jogging in world mode is a real pain.

Any other issues with AB vs. UV ?

Thank you.

tweaked the .ini and am able to get F6000 without losing steps.
This number seems large, however watching the movement does not seem all that fast?

I am used to dealing in IPM (Inches Per Minute) ...how does this compare?
