    Hi there,

    Absolute newbie with zero experience and hoping someone can help me.

    I have built an OX machine and paired it with the XPro4 controller.

    When I try and jog the machine by 1mm the axis moves by around 6mm.

    I get the impression that I need to change the $$ settings and that this is probably a really simple issue but I have no idea what to do.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks
    James

    You need to adjust your motors steps/mm. Its referred to as steps calibration. If you're using OpenBuilds Control, there are wizards for this in the Wizards& Tools menu. If not, then look for something in the software you are using or do it this way: HOWTO Calibrate your CNC Machine for MACH3 or GRBL
