What are the units of the feedrate slider in the Manual Control tab.
I need to know what feed rate is being set when I command a movement through the manual control tab in the repetier host software. The online documentation says that the slider labeled feed rate in the gui is in fact a "multiply" (maybe multiplier? The full paragraph from the documentation is as follows:
"The “Speed multiply” slider allows it to change the printing/move speed in relation to the send feed rate. This function is tested with Repetier-Firmware and Marlin. Be careful if you increase the speed. If you haven’t defined the real limits in your firmware this can cause lost steps during print!"
Is the slider setting an actual feedrate for traverse commands through the manual movenment tab in some units presumably (mm/s) or is it being used to multiply one of the feedrates from the printer settings tab or the firmware (perhaps its multiplying the travel feedrate which is set in printer settings tab). If it is acting as a multiplier to a set feed rate it seems that it is being treated as a percentage, since the default lowest value for the slider is 25.
My Google foo has been unable to find any good answers on this subject so any help would be much appreciated. Also if there is a clear answer it would be nice if someone would clarify that on the manual control documentation page.
