    Accelleration=50
    Step pulse=5
    Dir pulse=0


    Ah yes and my axis are going minus from home i think there is a way to reverse that isnt there, will do axis travel measurements in a moment...

    yes we can make the axis go the right way, but the movement is the important one for now

    Ok if i move the Z axis from 0.0000 to 1.0000 i get a movement of 5mm.

    ok change the steps to 200, and try again

    Ok with 200 steps if i jog the Z axis from 0.0000 to 1.0000 i get a movement of 1mm. but slow.

    it will be slower as it's a fifth the amount of steps, but it's the RIGHT AMOUNT OF STEPS PER UNIT.
    This must stay at this setting.

    Next step is to set the jog rate at 100%

    Press "tab" to get the mpg screen and set the jog rate to 100% (just below the "slow jog rate")

    Ok it was already at 100% :)

    to speed up the axis you raise the velocity, but the faster you go the more chance you have of stallling the motor and loosing steps.

    Ok thats cool what would you suggest for volocity and accell
