I am having trouble calibrating. I went to the machine inspector but could not find steps/mm I looked down the whole list but could not find any words next to the numbers. I tried $100= a number but it just made the stepper motors go slower.
go to the GRBL page and it will give the answers you seek.
I changed so it goes the right distance but now the stepper motor moves much faster.
you could always watch videos if you are a visual learner.
I watched this video but it does not explain why when I change steps/mm it went much faster.
You need to post your setting so we can take a look and see if anything is wrong.
did you notice that there are feed rates in the GRBL code
|$110=500.000||X Max rate, mm/min|
|$111=500.000||Y Max rate, mm/min|
|$112=500.000||Z Max rate, mm/min|
|$120=10.000||X Acceleration, mm/sec^2|
|$121=10.000||Y Acceleration, mm/sec^2|
|$122=10.000||Z Acceleration, mm/sec^2|
|$130=200.000||X Max travel, mm|
|$131=200.000||Y Max travel, mm|
|$132=200.000||Z Max travel, mm|
so from this what is your $110= and $120=
but I agree with @WayneHall post your output from $$ and lets see what you have going on.
Are you hooked to the machine?
Actually no. I will plug into the machine and get back to you when I can.
Not sure what you have most of the settings don’t look close to anything i have seen. Maybe someone else can chime in.
are you running an X-Carve or some other GRBL machine?
One that I made. I figured it though
do you mean you figured it out.
was it your settings?
your 100=1900.0 seems like a high number for most steppers.
Yes, I set it to $100=1875, $101=2500, $102=800
Also, How do I slave a axis?
You’re trying to clone an A axis on a four axis machine or clone any axis on a three axis machine?
You have a very high microstep setting applied to your drivers.
Why? It will not be required.
What controller do you have?
