Multi-Axis Velocity

What is Multi-Axis Motion?

Multi-Axis Velocity Motion refers to a multi-axis velocity move that can be updated on the fly. This means that when a new velocity is commanded, all axes will update their velocities synchronously.

When to Use Multi-Axis Motion?

When it is necessary to update velocity, synchronously, and on the fly on multiple axis.

Multi-Axis Motion Test

In this picture, you can observe a Multi-Axis object updating its velocity 5 separate times every second. All 6 axes updated their velocity synchronously and on the fly. This means that every 1 second, the velocity of all 6 axes was updated and their update rate was tightly synchronized (happening at the same time).
In this picture you can observe 6 axes Multi-Axis object being updated with different velocities every 100ms.
In this picture you can observe how all 6 axes were updated every 100ms with random velocities, and every velocity update was happening at the same time (The vertical white lines display when a move is being updated).

Why did we Test?

It was important to see how fast we could update velocities on a Multi-Axis object and how synchronized this velocity moves would be.
Therefore, we ran a test that would update a Multi-Axis’ velocity 100,000 times. We found that every velocity update was happening at approximately 2ms.


A Multi-Axis object velocity can be updated every ~2ms.
A Multi-Axis can change all its axes velocities on the fly at a tightly synchronized manner
