General Mach Discussion / Motor Tuning Issues
« on: May 23, 2011, 01:25:14 PM »
I am having a difficult time tuning my steps per inch. I am able to cut a square 5 x 5 piece of plywood within 5/1000 ths of an inch but when I use the same settings to measure a distance (sheet of 97" melamine), the DRO reads just over 88 inches.  Very large discrepancy and if I set the steps per inch in relation to the 97" melamine my 5 x 5 inch square is more like a 5 x 4 rectangle.
I have searched but I do not see anyone else that has had such a large diff. in readings.  This only occurs in the x-direction, as the y and z seem fine.

Thank-you for any assistance.

Greg
