Independant Dual Z Axis settings



  • Hi, can someone clarify if you need to extend the motor settings in config.g if you are using independent z axis motors?

    i.e. I have connected my Z motors to the Duex5 Drives 8 and 9

    set drive assignments as below
    M584 X0 Y1 Z8:9 E3:4; assign drives to axis

    but should the max speed settings included doubles for Z i.e. should these read

    M350 X16 Y16 Z16 E16:16 I1 ; Configure microstepping without interpolation
    M566 X600 Y600 Z100 E200:200 ; Set maximum instantaneous speed changes (mm/min) bumped up extruder settings

    or

    M350 X16 Y16 Z16:16 E16:16 I1 ; Configure microstepping without interpolation
    M566 X600 Y600 Z100:100 E200:200 ; Set maximum instantaneous speed changes (mm/min) bumped up extruder settings

    or doesn't it matter

    thanks

    The M350 and M566 commands need only specify one Z value, which will be applied to both Z motors. Similarly for M92, M201 and M203.
