• What profile do I use in VCarve for a BlackToe?

The blackToe is a CNC Router based on standard CNC Routing and milling actions. If you are referring to a profile machining operation (where the path follows the inside or outside edge of a polygon, line, arc or circle) then the profile is actually more a function what you want the CNC router (blackToe in this case) to do. A profile expects a specific end mill in the spindle and requires the specifications of the end mill in the profile operation.

If you are referring to profile to mean "post processor" or specifications (profile of the control) for the g-code interpretation for a specific control program (like Mach3), then you will need to set the post processor in VCarve post-processor to the control program you are using.

Please provide more specific information here so I can delve in a bit deeper.

• My question about motor tuning for the blacktoe in Mach 3 was for the aceleration and velocity settings what are the recomended settings

In the customer service live, just enter "motor tuning" and it will give you a list of all the recommended or default settings for our machines. However the acceleration and velocity for the greenBull(other machines) will be an actual determination on your trials. You will want the highest possible acceleration and velocity without the motors stalling, so you can do increments of ten to be on the safe side, if it is too slow try increments of 25.

The steps per inch is dependent on the microstepping:
Steps/Inch for the x and y
Steps = 200 motor steps per revolution x 16 microsteps = 3200 steps
Inches = sprocket number of teeth x pitch of the sprocket = 14 x .25" = 3.5 inches
steps/inch = 3200 / 3.5 = 914.28
This is really a starting point. You will then need to use the mach3 calibration function to get the perfect steps/inch value. Use as long a measurement as possible when calibrating.

Velocity:
Start with a value of 1000 ipm. Increase this value with a relatively low acceleration at about 10. You will notice at a particular velocity that it will stall. This is your stall velocity. I would take the stall velocity and reduce it by about 30% to 50% which should give you a good final safe velocity.

Acceleration:
Once the velocity is found, raise the acceleration until it start to stall at a low velocity. Reduce the acceleration by about the same percentage to stick with a safe acceleration.

The acceleration is mostly dependent on torque (current) and the top speed is dependent on the amount of voltage.

Give some tests with all of the axes running at the same time. If you notice and stalling, reduce velocities and acceleration depending on when the stall happens (top end, or acceleration curve).

• How do I connect my motor wires to the driver?

Use the datasheet associated to the motor that you purchased. Use the bipolar parallel configuration to optimum performance. The datasheets are located in their respective motor product pages. Just click on the motion electronics at the left and scroll down to the motor you have and click on the title, or datasheet link next to the motor. The datasheet will either be in the form of a pdf, or within the instructions on that product page.
