With the recent surge in Omicron cases, shipping may be slower than stated times. We are working to build, ship and respond to everything as quickly as possible. Please see all COVID-19 updates here. Thank you for your continued support.

  • I have not been able to do any multi-axis (two-axis to start with) coordinated movement with the SPI commands GOTO. The board runs at a minimum 15.25 steps/sec as Eide had mentioned. Even after calling setMinSpeed(0.0).

    I don't fully understand the datasheet but I have also tried to set acceleration to maximum and see if the board perform in a more predictable manner at low speed. But unfortunately not. I did a series of test to verify the speed, for example GOTO command from 0 to 50. At speed 5 step/s, acceleration at 59590 (max value). The theoretical time it should take is 10 sec. However it took only 3.17 sec to finish.

    I end up having to abandon SPI commands and do stepping through the STCK pin. Which renders the acceleration feature unusable.
