Problem with scaling(?)
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:08:47 PM »
Running Mach3. My machine has an issue. If I say move 26 mm (about one inch) it only moves a very tiny amount. If I make a part, it makes it like it is on the head of a pin. Scale says 1:1 and does not deem to be changeable. Any ideas?

Your steps/unit are probably wrong.
Make sure your Native UNits is set correctly, and then calibrate the axes.

Native units are set to metric. Verified that command X26 moves the X axis exactly one inch so should be correct.

Try adding G20 to the start of your Gcode file.
