Mach3 under Vista / Mach3 Axis Calibration Mystery
« on: February 20, 2017, 04:48:04 PM »
I have just put a 3 axis router table together, and I am now fighting with the axis calibration in Mach3.

The Mystery is (so far) about the X-axis and the Y-axis. They have the same stepper motor, Nema23, the same Microstepper drive, Leadshine M542, with the same setting for microsteps (=16) BUT the screws do not have the same pitch. The pitch for X axis is 5, for the Y-axis is 10.

Wouldn't you expect the Steps Per in Config>Motor Tuning to be the DOUBLE for the X-axis compared to the Steps Per for the Y-axis? I mean, to move a bolt 1 mm takes N (number) of steps on the Y-axis,
for the X-axis it is 2 x N , since the pitch is half of what is on Y-axis?

Or am I just totally on the wrong path here?

Any help will be much appreciated,

best regards
