motor tuning help
« on: January 25, 2017, 02:35:51 PM »
I have a G0704 I am converting and need some help

I would like to know where to start on the steps per.

Is there a general starting point?
X,Y nema 23 570oz-in
Z nema 34 906oz-in

Ball screws are RM-16 Metric C7 grade ball screws. 5mm Pitch (.508 TPI)  if this helps not sure how to figure it out.

Thank you

There is an example of the calculations here http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,12512.0.html

There is also an automated procedure 'Set Steps per Unit' on the Mach3 Settings (Alt-6) page.
