Suggestion for MicroStep
I am just about finished with the WoodSmith magazine CNC router. I am looking for suggestions for MicroStep resolution. The X-axis motor is a NEMA 34, 1.8 degree step angle, 5.5 amp. I am using a 1/2" lead screw which displaces the gantry .5"/revolution. The Y and Z axis use the same lead screw by the stepper motors are NEMA 23, 1.8 degree, 2.8 amp. Also, when selecting the Drive output amps to the motors should this be above or below the motor rating.
