howdy folks, i have a 2 part question that I believe should be an easy one for those pros out there.
my small cnc router uses mach 3 with ESS. i have 2 nema 23 stepper motors moving the x-axis..they are slaved x-axis,a-axis.
i recently noticed while going through my different settings and screens in Config/motor tuning that the 'steps per' were slightly different
on the x-axis the settings are as follows: steps per= 1018.487835 velocity= 300 acceleration= 15 G's= 0.0388528 step pulse= 2 Dir pulse= 2
on the a-xis(slaved) the settings for 'steps per' = 1089.487835 all other parameters are identical.
first question is obvious, should the 'steps per' values be identical?
second question, if so-how do i know which one is correct?
thank you in advance, db
