axis move wrong in mach 3
« on: April 14, 2015, 02:14:12 PM »
Hi!

Im having trubble with axis moving wrong after tuning engines, im using mm and if i set motor steps per to 320 then if I make a move G0Y0.01 the axis in mach 3 say that it stands on 0.0094 but if i move 1mm it shows 1mm.
.250 .500 .750 and 1mm show right movement in mach3.

Just cant understand why. Anyone who can help?

Hi,

i think it is based on your step resolution (but dont know 100%)

320 steps per mm means a resolution of 0,003125mm

Mach can only do one step, so if i does one step more:

0,0094 + 0,003125 = 0,012525 or in the other way

a move of 0.01 would be 3.2 steps

0,250 would be 8 step's and so on.

anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Thanks for answer!

Yes it seems that way, and mach 3 newer goes over the given coordinate always stops one step before if it's not exactly one step.
