first of all you have to be clear in witch unit you what to work,
because sometimes you are talking in mm and sometimes in inches.

let's say we want to work in mm.

figure out what your leadscrew pitch is (for example 15mm per rotation)
figure out the stepangle of your motors (for example 1,8° menas 200 Steps per rotation)
figure out in witch stepping mode your stepper controller is set up (for example 1/2 step mode)

in our example we have 1/2 setp mode and 200 Steps/rot. means we need 400Steps per 15mm.
-> 26.66666666 Steps/mm will per your setup in motortuning

for the speed you can start with 400rev/min what means
-> 6000 mm/min is your speed for motortuning

for acceleration let's start with 600 (1/10 of speed)

if your machine is running now in the correct measurement
you can pay with speed and acceleration.

all these values are based on my example above.

you can also look for EstlCam,
i am using this, it's realy easy.


hello picoworm,

don't want to interupt you in your own way of making a reference sequence,
but all this VB stuff will be to slow for what ever you try to do.

hope i can make me understand in my bad german english.

I have problem with wireing this up. There is no Enable joints (just DIR and STEP)unlike my stepper motor driver. I read manual but I didn't find explanation why is that. Could soneone tell me how to make it work.
yes, yust figure it out.

Hi Guys,

as long we dont know, what picoworm is trying to do,
it's only a look into the "cristal ball".
my "cristal ball" is out of order, because the lamp is
broken, and nobody is around to change the lamp.

Regards Thomas

where is the problem off the metric system (the one and only),
be happy that your machine is metric.

the answer is displayed in your status lin on the botom of the screen.

the limit switch for home Y axis is allready triggered.

possibility 1: make it free by moving in manual
possibilty 2. config -> general config -> disable home sw. safety

You usually don't need to convert to a string to put something in a messagebox.

you are right with the example above.

but only in this case:
Test = 1234.5
MsgBox Test

not in this case:
Test = 1234.5
MsgBox "Test = " + CStr(Test)
