Can I configure the steps per unit in English measurements but then use Mach 3 to produce parts from metric drawings?

If I round up units per step I'm going to be a little inaccurate over the length of the bed.

I've set up a Shuttle Pro2 with Mach 3 and my Taig milling machine.

I just wondered how to configure each of the keys and how other users used theirs!

It seems like a nice device and being able to control the machine and reset axis from a hardware device is much more convenient than navigating and clicking in mach3.

Trying to configure the steps per unit (mm) on my Taig CNC with Stepmaster 4 axis controller (model SOP-2 ver 1.2)

The screws are 1/2" x 20TPI

Steppers are Sure step 276 oz 2.8A 1.8degree step (200 steps) 1/8th step microstepping

Units in Mach 3 are mm

To work out the steps per unit = steps per revolution of stepper motor * TPI of leadscew

Any ideas?
