I have gotten Pathpilot to move the xyza axis and to run my spindle. I now am trying to calibrate velocity and acceleration to find my (open loop stepper) machines' limits. I am having trouble determining which .hal or .ini parameters are involved.
I am hoping some one can tell me how to increase velocity and acceleration.

Thanks

I have been playing around with the MAX_VELOCITY = 1.833, MAX_ACCELERATION = 15.0 and the STEPGEN_MAX_VEL = 2.2 STEPGEN_MAXACCEL = 18.0. I can't find a correlation between the Jogging keys or
the Feed code any these settings. Does anybody have any idea where I can find a description or a table that describes .ini parameters?

thanks

Bill,
Ini File docs for V 2.7 are here:
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.7/html/config/ini-config.html

Jogging speed is set in the [DISPLAY] section with

DEFAULT_LINEAR_VELOCITY
