<axis> Configuration Element

Overview

The <axis> configuration element is a child of the <geometry> element. It contains configuration information on a single axis in your machine.

Parameters

id - since 0002

The id parameter contains a string representation of the name of the axis. For cartesian geometry machines, this must be either: x, y, or z.

length - since 0002

The length parameter contains a decimal number representing the full travel length of the axis in mm.

maxfeedrate - since 0002

The maxfeedrate parameter contains a decimal number representing the maximum feedrate that the axis is capable of. The unit format is in mm/minute. A maxfeedrate of 100 means that the axis can move a maximum of 100mm per minute, or roughly 1.66mm per second.

scale - since 0002

The scale parameter contains a decimal number representing the scale of the axis. This format for this unit is steps/mm. A scale of 320 means that it takes 320 steps to move the axis 1mm.
