I have never worked with slaved axis but I would think they'd work better if when they are square that both motors are sitting on a full step and holding. Otherwise everytime you power up I would think the motors will both come to a full step and the gantry will be off by some fraction of a full step every time.

In my gantry router machine, before I knew and understood in how this is set up as listed in these posts, I modified mygantry axis with synchronisation mechanically, that is, done by timing belt. Once setting up, it is supposed to have no square problem. Mach3 seems to have insufficient instructions on how gantry setting up!.....

OK I know this is an old reply to all of this but I am doing my build now.

 If you do not check the home slave, the slave does not home with the x. ???  My thought is that if you are close to the switches it would not hurt the gantry. If not ouch. So wht is the right way to do this.

Mach3, PMDX 126, Gecko 203 and stepper motors.
