This is a list of all configuration options currently understood by the Smoothie firmware.

If you want more information about a given module, how it works and how to configure it, you can refer to that module's page.

For information on options to settings please refer to here for pull up, pull down, open drain, etc.

Option Example value Explanation
General motion
default_feed_rate 4000 Default rate for G1/G2/G3 moves in millimetres/minute. This is overrided by the first F ( feedrate ) parameter after reset, and never used again.
default_seek_rate 4000 Default rate for G0 moves in millimetres/minute
mm_per_arc_segment 0.5 Arcs are cut into segments ( lines ), this is the length for those segments. Smaller values mean more resolution, higher values mean faster computation
mm_per_line_segment 5 Lines can be cut into segments ( generally not useful with cartesian coordinates robots ), this sets the maximum length of any given segment. Segments longer than this will be cut into several segments.
delta_segments_per_second 100 Instead of cutting lines into segment based on a distance, cut them based on time : segments will be cut so that Smoothie executes -about- delta_segments_per_second segments each second. This is mostly useful when using linear_delta arm solutions.
planner_queue_size 32 Defines how many blocks ( line segments ) are stored in RAM for look-ahead acceleration calculation. Do not change this unless you know exactly what you are doing !
acceleration 3000 Acceleration in millimetres/second/second. Higher values make your machine faster and shakier, lower values make your machine slower and sturdier. This is generally proportional to the weight of the tool you are trying to move.
alpha_acceleration Acceleration in millimetres/second/second for the alpha actuator ( X axis on cartesian ), do not set on deltas
beta_acceleration Acceleration in millimetres/second/second for the beta actuator ( Y axis on cartesian ), do not set on deltas
gamma_acceleration Acceleration in millimetres/second/second for the gamma actuator ( Z axis on cartesian ), do not set on deltas
junction_deviation 0.05 Similar to the old "max_jerk", in millimeters. Defines how much the machine slows down when decelerating proportional to the vector angle of change of direction. See here and here. Lower values mean being more careful, higher values means being faster and have more jerk
z_junction_deviation 0 Junction deviation for Z only moves, -1 uses junction_deviation, 0 disables junction_deviation on z moves. Do not set this value if you use a delta arm solution.
minimum_planner_speed 0 Sets the minimum planner speed in millimetres/sec. This is the lowest speed the planner will ever set a move to. Not generally useful.
microseconds_per_step_pulse 1 Duration of step pulses to the stepper motor drivers, in microseconds
base_stepping_frequency 100000 Base frequency for stepping, higher values gives smoother movement. Do not modify unless you know exactly what you are doing, 100khz is the only officially supported value.
alpha_steps_per_mm 80 Steps per millimetre for alpha stepper motor ( this is the X axis for a cartesian machine )
beta_steps_per_mm 80 Steps per millimetre for beta stepper motor ( this is the Y axis for a cartesian machine )
gamma_steps_per_mm 1600 Steps per millimetre for gamma stepper motor ( this is the Z axis for a cartesian machine )
arm_solution cartesian Sets the arm solution for this machine. The arm solution converts position in millimetres into actuator positions ( usually in steps ). On cartesian machines those are proportional to each other, but for example on a linear delta machine, some fancy math is required for the conversion. Possible values : cartesian, corexy, linear_delta, rotatable_cartesian, morgan
arm_length 100 In the case of a linear_delta arm solution, this is the length of an arm from hinge to hinge
arm_radius 124 In the case of a linear_delta arm solution, this is the horizontal distance from hinge to hinge when the effector is centered
alpha_angle 45 In the case of a rotatable_cartesian arm solution, angle by which the plane is rotated
arm1_length 100 In the case of a morgan arm solution, length of the first arm
arm2_length 100 In the case of a morgan arm solution, length of the second arm
morgan_offset_x 10 In the case of a morgan arm solution, X offset
morgan_offset_y 10 In the case of a morgan arm solution, Y offset
axis_scaling_x 0.8 In the case of a morgan arm solution, scaling in the X axis
axis_scaling_y 0.8 In the case of a morgan arm solution, scaling in the Y axis
x_axis_max_speed 30000 Maximum allowable speed for the X axis, in millimetres/minute. Smoothie will never exceed that value for that axis.
y_axis_max_speed 30000 Maximum allowable speed for the Y axis, in millimetres/minute. Smoothie will never exceed that value for that axis.

temperature_control.module_name.hysteresis 2.0 Set to the temperature in degrees C to use as hysteresis for bang bang control
temperature_control.module_name.i_max 64 Maximum value for the I variable in the PID control. This should usually be set to about the same value as max_pwm ( as a rule of thumb, it is not actually a pwm setting ). This helps with preventing overshoot when initially heating up. If you get a strong ( >10°C ) overshoot on startup, try setting this to a value lower than max_pwm
temperature_control.module_name.sensor thermistor Set the type of sensor used to read temperature. Values can be thermistor for the usual thermistor reading via ADC method, or max31855 to read values from a thermocouple over SPI. See Reading a thermocouple
temperature_control.module_name.chip_select_pin 0.16 If the sensor is set to max31855, sets the chip select pin for the SPI port. This allows you to have multiple sensors sharing the same SPI port, as long as they each get a chip select ( CS ) pin.

leveling-strategy.three-point-leveling.probe_offsets 0,0,0 The probe offset from nozzle, must be X,Y,Z (Z should always be 0), default is no offset. This is used if your nozzle is not exactly at the same position as where your tool would be.
leveling-strategy.three-point-leveling.save_plane false Set to true to allow the bed plane to be saved with M500, default is false
leveling-strategy.delta-calibration.enable true Set to true to enable the delta calibration levelling strategy. This uses the probe to figure out the plane's tilt and arm's radius in a delta machine
leveling-strategy.delta-calibration.radius 100 Radius at which to probe the three points
leveling-strategy.delta-calibration.initial_height 10 the initial height above the bed we stop the initial move down after home to find the bed. This should be a height that is enough that the probe will not hit the bed and is an offset from gamma_max (can be set to 0 if gamma_max takes into account the probe offset)
Panel
panel.enable false Set to true to enable the panel interface. Panels are a screen, an encoder wheel and/or a set of buttons, used to control your machine.
panel.lcd reprap_discount_glcd Type of panel we are connecting. Each panel has a specific interface so we need to specify which panel we will be connecting. The currently supported panel types are reprap_discount_glcd, st7565_glcd, viki2, mini_viki2 and universal_adapter.
panel.spi_channel 0 SPI channel to use
panel.spi_cs_pin 0.16 CS ( Chip Select ) pin to use, this can be used to have several different devices on the same SPI port, as long as each device has a separate CS pin. Note that the RRD GLCD panel does not support this and requires being alone on it's port.
panel.spi_frequency 500000 SPI port frequency
panel.contrast 9 Contrast value for panels that support it ( viki2, mini_viki2 and st7565_glcd )
panel.reverse false If set to true, reverse the screen.
panel.busy_pin nc If using the universal_adapter, this pin can be connected to the adapter to ask it if it is busy or not.
panel.a0_pin nc If using a viki or SSD1306 this is needed to drive the C/D pin on the display
panel.rst_pin nc If using an SSD1306 this pin is sometimes required and connects to the reset pin on the display
panel.encoder_a_pin 3.25!^ A pin for the encoder wheel. Encoders have two pins : A and B. Set to nc if you use no encoder.
panel.encoder_b_pin 3.26!^ B pin for the encoder wheel. Encoders have two pins : A and B. Set to nc if you use no encoder.
panel.encoder_resolution 2 the number of pulses the encoder emits per detent/click
panel.click_button_pin 1.30!^ Pin for the click ( "enter" ) button
panel.buzz_pin 1.31 Pin for the buzzer
panel.back_button_pin 2.11!^ Pin for the back button
panel.up_button_pin 0.1! Pin for the up button
panel.down_button_pin 0.0! Pin for the down button
panel.menu_offset 0 On some panels, this value must be set to 1. This is a number of lines to offset the menu lines by on screen.
panel.alpha_jog_feedrate 6000 X jogging feedrate in millimetres/minute. This is used when jogging using the panel screen.
panel.beta_jog_feedrate 6000 Y jogging feedrate in millimetres/minute. This is used when jogging using the panel screen.
panel.gamma_jog_feedrate 200 Z jogging feedrate in millimetres/minute. This is used when jogging using the panel screen.
panel.hotend_temperature 185 Temperature to set the hotend to when using the pre-heating menu item
panel.bed_temperature 60 Temperature to set the bed to when using the pre-heating menu item
panel.external_sd true Set to true if your panel has an external SD card slot, or if you want to connect a second SD card slot to one of your Smothieboard's SPI ports
panel.external_sd.spi_channel 0 Set the SPI channel the external SD card is on
panel.external_sd.spi_cs_pin 2.8 Set the CS ( Chip Select ) pin for the external SD card, this allows you to use multiple devices on the same SPI port, as long as they each have a CS pin
panel.external_sd.sdcd_pin 2.13!^ SD card detect signal pin, set to nc if you don't use a SD card detect signal
custom_menu.menu_name.enable true When set to true, create a new custom menu entry for the panel with the name menu_name. You can create any number of custom entries as long as they have different names.
custom_menu.menu_name.name Power_on The name that will be displayed in the panel's menus
custom_menu.menu_name.command M80_S30|G1_X10 The command that will be executed when the menu entry is selected and clicked. Note that the _ character gets converted to space in the menu and commands ( and must be used instead of the space character ) , and the | character is used to separate multiple commands
Network
network.enable false If set to true, enable the Ethernet network services
network.webserver.enable true If set to true, enable the web server service, on port 80, which provides a control and upload web interface
network.telnet.enable true If set to true, enable the telnet service, on port 23, which behaves much like a Serial interface
network.plan9.enable false If set to true, enable the plan9 network filesystem on port 564 which allows mounting the Smoothieboard
network.ip_address auto If set to auto, use DHCP to request an IP address. If set to an IP address, use that address as a static IP.
network.ip_mask 255.255.255.0 If using a static IP, define the mask for the network.
network.ip_gateway 192.168.3.1 If using a static IP, define the gateway for the network.
network.mac_override AB.AB.AB.AB.AB.AB If set, override the MAC adress for the Ethernet interface. Only set this if you have a conflict on your network.
network.hostname shapeoko17 Some DHCP servers accept a hostname for the machine, which then allows you to connect to it using that name instead of it's IP.
