    I am using Estlecam with my MPCNC and I have calibrated my X and Y directions, however, I can not get Z into calibration. When I move 1″ in Estlcam, my z axis moves about 5/8″.

    I have tried adjusting my “Distance Per revolution” but my calculations (I dont have them in front of me) require me to set the Distance per revolution so small that I get an error about the frequency being over 160hz.

    Has anyone else had this issue and have a way around it? I’m using 5/16″-18tpi rod for my Z axis.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.. I’m so close and I can’t wait to cut!



    Have a look in the estlcam thread I believe I have the settings in the second post, we have to go less than 32nd stepping to stay under the limit. You need to remove jumpers.
