How to change motion acceleration

Usually settings for motion acceleration can be found in “SYS” configuration Tab, “Motion Settings” section

Acceleration defined in cnc-variables.xml configuration file. Item name for Acceleration is


where LISTAXES is list of axes.

It's possible to either setup separate acceleration for each axis -

<value name="motion-acceleration-x" >1000</value>
<value name="motion-acceleration-y" >1000</value>
<value name="motion-acceleration-z" >250</value>
<value name="motion-acceleration-a" >500</value>
<value name="motion-acceleration-b" >300</value>
<value name="motion-acceleration-c" >100</value>

Or setup acceleration for group of axes, for example one acceleration for X and Y axes, next for Z axis and another for all rotary axes (A, B, C) -

<value name="motion-acceleration-xy" >1000</value>
<value name="motion-acceleration-z" >250</value>
<value name="motion-acceleration-abc" >500</value>

Like all other configuration items, acceleration settings can be brought to User interface dialogs. For example in user settings dialog of 1024P profile settings for XY acceleration is

fgColor="cyan" format="%d" height="60"
name="display-motion-acceleration-xy" fontSize="18" bgColor="black".
labelWidth="130" displayWidth="90" fontStyle="bold" orientation="horizontal">
  <message>Acceleration XY, %accel%</message>
  <message_ru>Ускорение XY,%accel%</message_ru>

and the dialog with Acceleration settings -

How to change Screen Size and Position

There are few settings to control GUI screen size, position and window attributes

  • Full screen - switch myCNC main window to full-screen mode (without Window title and borders)
  • Maximize screen - switch myCNC window to Desktop Size but keep windows title and border
  • Fixed screen size - set size in pixels for myCNC main screen window
  • Fixed screen position - move left-top point of myCNC main window to given position
It's supposed this setting should work the same way for all OS and Window Managers like 
Windows 7/8/10, Linux KDE, XFCE or Mate Window manager. Unfortunately, window behaviour 
DO depends on OS/Window Manager. You might need to play with this settings to find a view 
suitable for your needs.
