Latest Firmware?

Postby KAS » Mon Sep 05, 2016 7:42 pm

Anyone using the latest "edge" version of smoothieware? If so, notice any improvements?

New features, please test

We just merged a massive code refactor into Smoothie ( ).
This was truly a massive chunk of work, but it does need more testing.

This changes Smoothie to calculate acceleration for every step instead of 1000 times a second, which results in even smoother/better quality movement.
It also comes with many many smaller improvements to planning and step generation. It solves many small problems users experienced in some circumstances. Amongst those, it is expected to fix the infamous "S3D bug", so please test that.
It is also expected to make Smoothie wore sturdy overall, and is a first step towards implementing some more refactors.

A few things have changed for users, so please read ... before upgrading.

To upgrade, the procedure is as usual, and you can find it here :

Please tell us if you encounter any problems, and what you think about your Smoothie's new step generation.

If you are not up for a little testing, then please use the master branch instead.

Cheers :)

I was hoping @626Pilot would merge the huge update into his version so I could do some testing. I really enjoy using his heuristic calibration routine, makes life really easy!
