    Can I assume that 1 revolution of my stepper motor will deliver 60 mm (3mm spacing of teeth x 20 teeth on wheel) of travel? Can anyone verify my assumption or give me the correct procedure for calculating this?

    Hi John,

    You are quite correct and teeth on wheel times pitch of matching belt is the way to calculate actual movement per one revolution.
