You say you have the stepper drives from Probotix so looking at the manual there on page 1 is a diagram showing the dip switches, see what they are set to and read from the table. 1/8 step will probably be the best for you but whether they are at that I dont know.

Unfourtionitley that is not it . The board I have they do not make or sell anymore . Mine has lights yellow -red & green with no dip switches . This is the highest volts or amps . The only think is to write Probotix , I will do that if you its need . Or is their another avanue we can go ?

OK you can do it by trial and error, enter 4000 in steps per unit for the X axis and save, then go to the MDI page and type G0X1 and see if the axis moves 1 inch, if not roughly measure how far it moves and we can go from there.

OK so try 16,000 now for x axis steps per unit then repeat the MDI but remember to zero the X axis first.
