To multiply your current movement distances by a factor of 3 then go to  Config / Motor Tuning and multiply the ‘Steps per’ by 3. Do this for each axis clicking ‘Save Axis Settings’ after each change.

As an alternative you could go to the Settings page and use the Axis Calibration feature to set the correct steps per unit for each axis.
