    Default Stepper Motors

    I have a Xylotex 3 axis board with 4 wire steppers (Nema23), Mach3, XP Desktop, HP 20.7" flat monitor. When I jog my motors 4 inches, the Mach3 DRO shows 4 inches but actual travel of my mill table is only about 3/8 of an inch. Motor tuning is:
    Steps Per - 2000, Velocity 175, Acceleration 25 and the Pulse - 1 and 1.ted. Thank you,


    Suggestions appreciated. Thank you,


    Ray

    Just change your steps per inch to match. eg 4 inches = 8000 steps so 2000x4/(3/8)=21333.33 steps per inch. Cheers Peter s

    My Xylotex has micro stepping set by jumper. You may want to double check that, otherwise it's a calculation (decimal ?) error.
