Firmware: Smoothie or GRBL-LPC
Question: I am currently building a new 2020 machine from scratch and am curious what the theoretical/practical maximum step rate for X/Y are using either of the firmwares?
Is there an upper limit to combined steps/second for all axis or per/axis?
Would like to know what I can expect given ideal circumstances so that I can better tune to reality.
My X-axis(200oz/in) is going to be very light to handle high speed raster. The Y-Axis will have a large (280oz/in) throwing the gantry around with ease.
I have some DM542T drivers and a 40 volt linear power supply so X and Y have lots of power.
I also have a 60W tube and new power supply which should be a lot better than the ~40W K40 one that died within a month.
