    I am about to configure a "System 45" 3 axis unit by DIYCNC in the UK , can some one please advice on what timing setting I should use when using the StepConf Wizard in LunuxCNC.
    Also the instructions for the System 45 give the following setting for the drivers that I don't understand?

    1/2 step type B (0-100%)
    1/2 step type A (0-71-100%)

    Which should I use?

    Best bet is to email Roy, be patient for a reply though
    Have you tried the default values for timing ? also do you really want 1/2 stepping ? it obviously depends upon the application but most go with 1/8 , in which case you dont care what (1/2 step type B (0-100%)
    1/2 step type A (0-71-100%)) means.

    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted
