Lost Steps Found
« on: April 04, 2012, 11:56:03 AM »
Well after nearly a year of searching for lost steps, which of course took untold number of hours and frustration, I happened across this link http://www.candcnc.com/G251-4_FMK.html

When testing my z axis one thing I did was write a simple file, as I discovered today is suggested, that would have the axis change direction multiple times.  When ran the file I discovered that with each direction change there was an equal amount of position loss.  I can't remember now but about 20 cycles of direction change on z would equal about 2mm of position loss.

Thought I should post in case there are others out there.  This isssue is likely an old one but always best not to assume.

Good to hear, hopefully you will be sorted once you get it done.
