OOZNest CNC jerk values

Re: [OOZNest WorkBee](screw driven)
@catalin_ro said in OOZNest WorkBee, screw driven:
After a lot of tests done with G2/G3, based on issues discovered while trying to machine a rather small Aluminum item, the maximum jerk should be limited to 300mm/min for X, Y and U. So change in config.g the line for M566 to:
M566 X300 Y300 Z12 U300
Hi @Catalin_RO Sorry to dig up such an old post but when i found this maybe you have the answer for me:
i have an OX CNC powered but duet 2 wifi clone and i'm quite happy with it i have mostly 0.1 to 0.3 max tolerance when milling aluminium which considering that the ox is far for rigid (especially the x grantry in torsion when plunging).
but every time i try to mill circles they are not exactly round, and it don't come from the material as i do have the same problem with a test milled with acetal.
when i check my circles, the diagonals radius are always 0.6mm bigger compared to the X or Y radius.
I just checked and my jerks (don't knwo why i have these values probably from the configurator) are set to
M566 X500 Y500 Z500 ; Set maximum instantaneous speed changes (mm/min)
would that explain my circles no so round ?
oh and i just checked on the gcode generated as i use ramps for plunging i have both succession of G1 and G2 used, here is an eaxmple for one depth (got 5 other layers like this one)

Hi @psychotik2k3,
If you dig further into that old thread, you will see that the jerk could be increased over time. Right now I still have it set to 400mm/min for X and Y, much lower for Z and 4th axis. But this parameter is used only when changing the movement direction on each axis. When machining/printing circles the jerk speed should normally not be used, or it shouldn't really matter, as the circles come up on each axis as a very natural movement, especially if the circle is large.
Have you considered looking for possible backlash sources? From my own experience that is the most overlooked cause for such problems. And it must be checked in all components.
I had my own ShapeOko clone above 5 years ago, but bought as a complete kit from an UK company. The delivered parts where of very good quality and I could get very precise results on Aluminum even if it was using belts and my milling motor was a beefy Proxxon weighing almost 3kg.
I also have access to a low cost Chinese engraving laser, with a flimsy frame and small steppers. That one exhibits problems similar to yours and we have tracked it down to the pulleys on the steppers. Somehow they are not perfectly mating with the belts and introduce some backlash, no matter the feed rate.
Even the 0.1..0.3 tolerance on your milled Aluminum parts indicate more of a mechanical issue. Even with my old ShapeOko clone I could get under 0.05mm precision. With my WorkBee I had to spend quite some time to properly determine the best steps/mm values as it is much easier to manufacture a close to perfect belt than to machine a leadscrew. Now I have to do the same for the upgrade  QueenBee (btw, pretty rigid with the 800W spindle).
So, if I were you, I would start milling small squares, like 50mm*50mm, and check their size, edges and corners. And that should be done at least in 9 places so you can check all extremities and central areas of the axes. if you have around also a decent machinist square, you can also insure indirectly that the machine is perfectly squared. The backlash should also be visible when machining squares, usually by not having perfect 90° corners or straight edges.
The Zaxis lack of rigidity may have two components. One is a rotation around the X axis due to the flimsiness (can't call it otherwise!) of the Vslot in that setup, and another one is rotation around the X axis plate (grab the spindle perpendicularly to the X axis, from the front, and try rotating it CW and CCW  you might find some wobble). The rotation around the X axis make impossible to machine thick items with perfectly vertical edges and tend to easily brake small endmills (had my share of broken endmills with the WorkBee), but it can be ignored for thin items (34mm thick!). The rotation around the X axis plate, though, produces a lot interesting artifacts, including some backlashlike. Also, this rotation around the X axis plate produces thick pieces that are smaller at the top than at the bottom on the X axis.
So, do some tests on acetal, better if 1015mm thick, and check for all angles and sizes. From there a lot of things can be understood and it will be easier to find the problem. Check the resulting pieces after machining in each position of the OX. When you find a problem, just stop and ask as it would be a pity to waste the material and the time.

@catalin_ro thanks, if the shipping costs where not that high i would go to teh queenbee pro, because it got interesting solutions about the rigidity on the X/Z axis.
On my side the flex is on torsion around the X axis, i mitigate a little by bolting both 2060 together but it's not enough.
i'll check on the z gantry around the Y axis as you mentionned to see if i have some.
0.05mm tolerance ? woaw, and i was quite happy with my 0.1mm.
i have to check if it changed or not but my machine is squared.
I had to replace the pulley because yes i had huge backlash because of that. But once again all parts came from ooznest, and if i have to redo them then i would probabley go to original gates belt and pulley to be sure.i will try some pieces and yes i do have a smal square to check
thanks for the informations.
