Speed calibrations

Hello all,

For those that have done speed calibrations on your lowrider, what pattern did you use for it? I am going to be doing a lot of cutting on the same material so wanting to fine tune my speed a little bit and see if I can get the machine to run faster. Is there a pattern that would be best used for this kind of thing? To me it makes sense to use some sort of smaller pattern that is close to what I am going to be doing, but figured I would check. Is a straight cut up and down each axis(x, y) ok? Or do I need to also include some sort of diagonal cut so that more than one axis is being used as well?

There is no real test. Just crank it up and see whether the results are what you’d like. I usually start too fast and work my way down. :smile:


There was a CNC Race test file used for some drag racing:

I think it depends on what you want to test. If you have a specific component of a cut you want to test, like the fastest slot cut, then that’s probably fine. But a real cut would have degradation in precision and you’d care about a finishing pass as well (if you wanted the precision back).

But in the end. A test is only as good as the interpretation of the results. They all have merit.
