    Thanks G, Luckily its a three car garage and thats, just 1 third, there is an in progress 1932 V8 HotRod taking another third, and a Half spray booth taking up half the other third but luckily they are 21' deep so there is more space than first appears..

    Sounds like an interesting garage set-up. What is the hot-rod? Even with your garage looking so full it is 20x tidier than mine. G.

    Ok today I hooked up Mach3 to the X Axis, Arrived at 200 steps Per/400mmMin/100Acceleration in motor tuning, Now here is where the brain goes mushy and i know ive asked this question before, The Gantry travels 2000mm in 18 seconds, the ballscrew is 10mm pitch, how do the settings in mach3 and the actual speed of the gantry relate to each other..

    Ok i think i have it.. LOL
    200 Steps per Rev x 8 microsteps = 1600 / 10mm pitch screw = 1600/10 = 160 steps per unit. not the 200 i put in, not sure what that will do when i put it in tomorrow when i get in but i will let you know.

    I knew ide asked before lol
