motion Set the starting acceleration for moves by type.

Description

Set the preferred starting acceleration (in units/s/s) for moves of different types. Send M204 with no parameters to get current settings.

View the current setting with M503.

If EEPROM_SETTINGS is enabled, these are saved with M500, loaded with M501, and reset with M502.

Legacy M204 S<accel> is deprecated. Use separate paremeters M204 P<accel> T<accel> instead.

Usage

Parameters

[P<accel>]

Printing acceleration. Used for moves that include extrusion (i.e., which employ the current tool).

[R<accel>]
