Hi
Is 4064 acceptable in the motor tuning? The norm appears to be around 266 in all the tutorials.  Don't want it to kill itself?

Steps per unit will be whatever your hardware dictates, likely the tutorials  you have been seeing are metric setups where the steps per unit will be 25.4 times smaller than Imperial setups as there are 25.4 mm's in an inch.

I've done this a couple of times before - I wouldn't have given you it if I thought it was incorrect or "dangerous".  ;)

According to the specs you gave this is correct - and no damage would occur whatever number you put in - it just wouldn't travel the correct distance.

Hi all,
Firstly, many thanks for everyones help, it is really appreciated.  I managed to get things sorted by a complete uninstall followed by in install.  Don't know why or what happened, but it seemed to do the trick.

Thanks again everyone.

Dave

Hi
Sorry for the delay in answering.  I used the auto setup in settings to get the steps count.  The one where you put in the amount of distance to travel and input how far it actually travelled and ive got it very close as I'm only doing relief carvings so the steps count was 6800.  Hope this is what you wanted.
regards
Dave

Curious number indeed... It just doesn't align (anywhere close) with the specs you posted - neither does it align particularly closely with any pitch of ballscrew I've come across - metric or Imperial.

That said a quick google results in at least 4 different specs for the "High-Z S-1000/T" depending on where you buy it. So maybe you have the 5th. ;D
