HD Crashed steps changed
« on: March 20, 2010, 04:46:14 PM »
My hard drive crashed. I replaced it and reinstalled all the software Mach3 V2.48 with all my original settings. Now my 3 – 201A Gecko drives act like they are not micro stepping. Before the crash the motor tuning was set at 40,000 steps per inch with 50 speed on all 3 axis . Now I have to set them at 1600 steps per inch and 600 speed. Any ideas? TIA

Yep, You were right on target. Thanks sooooo much. A day of checking this and that with an onset of depression and doom in sight but you saved me with one post. I'm impressed thanks.

ha ha lucky guess ;) well not really, its the only explanation there could be and 40,000/1,600 = 25 and there are 25.4mm in 1 inch.
