« on: December 20, 2015, 01:16:00 AM »
I recently build the dave gatton sidewinder CNC and it's setup and running mach4. I am having a problem with the distance the axis travels when I move them. For example when i tell the Z axis to move 1 inch ip it actually moves like 1.5 inches up. same with the X and Y axises. can someone tell me how to properly setup the machine so when I tell it to move an inch it actually moves and inch
