M204 - Set Starting Acceleration

motion Set the starting acceleration for moves by type.


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.


M204 [P<accel>] [R<accel>] [S<accel>] [T<accel>]



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


    Retract acceleration. Used for extruder retract / recover moves.


      Legacy parameter for move acceleration. Set both printing and travel acceleration.


        Travel acceleration. Used for moves that include no extrusion.
