How about if I just attach my spindle rotary Mach Profile in a PM for you to try? If that will that work for you, then send me a PM.

Digging through menus and typing here or explaining on the phone could get very time consuming. I can only assume your screws are the same ratios and you may have to convert/set from inch units if you use metric instead. I know the Z axis steps per. will not be the same because I changed mine to a 2-1 ratio for rotating a shaft encoder also from the stepper motor to the Z axis screw for laser diode engraving. I don't use notepad as an editor so you will have to change that in Gen. Conf. also. It should get you running, but you may have to make some changes.

Mike,

correction in my first post. Use Angular for the rotary instead of Linear.

If I remember correctly, he determined his breakout board was faulty and was not sending the change direction signal to the driver. Check your wire connections first though.
