Cheeco and I are talking about the target generator not the control loop. The target generator is the most complex part of the motion controller.

Yes, and much much more but we take care of that and hide it from the user. We have auto tuning. Our auto tuning really works. It only takes about two minutes. A lot of companies say they have auto tuning. It is a marketing thing to check off the feature list but their auto tuning is crude.
It really should be called auto tuning though. It should be called computer assisted tuning.
