Reduce travel movement speed

Hi.

How could I reduce the travel speed? It gives me a lot of vibration in the machine, for example I make 10mm circles and separated by 3mm between them and when one circle ends and passes to the other circle, it does so at a high speed.

I leave video of that high speed when going from one cycle to another:

I have also tried to lower the speed by 110 and 111 in Grbl and it works, it makes the movements slower but it also limits the engraving speed.

Hi the travel speed is set by your G-code sender application. In lightburn for example you can adjust this. See https://forum.lightburnsoftware.com/t/travel-speed-and-cutting-engraving/3860/6

Alternatively you can save the G-code file and do a search and replace of the g-code that does the travel. e.g F3000 replace with F1000 and then load the code and run it (from file).

also experiment with rapid speed settings.

In other g-code senders like CNCjs, you can set the shuttle speed which reduces the travel speed.

Thanks Paul, I just asked in the lightburn forum about it but I have been told that it is the plaque, in the grbl code:

I have also changed the values in the options that Lighburn shows but it does not work for me, I have put everything to test at 1mm / s and it remained the same.

I was also seeing the option of Lightburn to adjust the speed in white movements but it is only possible to increase and not decrease the one established in the engraving
