I am rebuilding my CNC router controls with a MK3/4 and DQ542MA drivers. I have 2 ball screws on my main axis connected to axis 2 with 4 slaved. When I tested this setup, everything works fine.

The X axis is connected to Axis 1 with the same settings. When I run it, the DRO looks correct but the movement is only a very small fraction of what it should be.

The settings on all 3 drivers are the same, they are wired the same, and the axis steps/rev are the same.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to troubleshoot this issue? Thanks!
