General Mach Discussion / Auto setting steps per unit
« on: December 21, 2006, 04:49:11 PM »
Hi, I am trying to do the automatic setting of steps per unit, I start with settings screen, click set steps per unit, click on axis to set, but when the box comes up requesting the amount to move, it will not take any entries, just stays at zero. What am I missing?
Thanks

Terry

Graham your absolutely right, it stopped on line 1000, thats amazing how many lines it went thru.
Thanks

Thanks for the comeback, I will try it again and see what line it quits on, I don't think it would be anywhere near 1000, I am still trying to grasp table settings etc. Yes I did enter the steps as you suggested Brett, that part seems to work fine.

Hi, guys, just got my machine to run finally, tried cutting the roadrunner for test, machine quits part way through program, always at same spot, is this because I am using demo version or a problem? Also what is your opinion on using the optimization settings, I have some pretty long and ugly lines when I run the driver test?
Thanks for any direction you can give.

Thanks Brett, I have the controller jumpered for 1/2 step, does that mean I use 1600? This probably seems like a dumb question, but I do appreciate your help.

I am confused by the formula to come up with steps per unit in the motor config screen, can someone give me the value using 16tpi rods with 1.8 degree motors, 200 steps per rev.?
Thanks.

You are absolutely right, I was sitting thinking about it last nite and realized that the cable has no effect.

Thanks for the reply, I am starting to suspect my printer cable, as now all motors are moving, however I am unable to bring up the jog control by hitting the tab key. I will purchase a new one in the am.
