Thanks Dan,
So was the fix in Mach3 or was it in the SS?
As I probably have a very downlevel SS  :( I'm hoping it's a Mach3 fix.

Cheers,
Dave.

Hi Dave,

It was a fix in the SS plugin. Or to put it better - an addition of backlash compensation code to the SS plugin.

Thanks Dan,
I've just been looking at the plugin versions and info on the SS web site but I'm still not clear what plugin and Mach3 combo I should use. There is still a bunch of red text saying that they have discovered a problem and that we should use the Dev versions of Mach3 rather than the lockdown one.

So I assume that I use this plugin (SmoothStepperUSBDriver2.08.14.zip) with Mach3 Dev R3.043.059? Incidentally the Mach downloads web page lists the SS plugin as 1.19.********* - needs updating.

Many thanks.

Dave,

I'm using Mach3 Dev version 057 and SS ver 17cd and it works fine here.

Hi Dan,
You mean this one? (2011-05-21    PlugIn: SmoothStepper_v17d.zip)

It's not available for download anymore.

There are only these three available: 2011-10-30    PlugIn: SmoothStepper_v17efb.zip,
this: SmoothStepperUSBDriver2.08.02.zip
and this: SmoothStepperUSBDriver2.08.14.zip.

Anyways, it's going to be a while before I get my workshop operational and mill reinstalled and by the time I get round to it things may have changed so I'll keep my eye on things.

Many thanks,
Dave.
