sorry for the lack of detail.

direct drive ball screws. i am not sure what the screw pitch is, the company website just refers to the last number in the model number, and that is 5.

please forgive me, i have a woodworking background, not machining.

thanks guys for your help so far. :)

That should be 5mm pitch, so 40 steps per milimeter. You can set that in stepconf as described above, or enter 320 steps per revolution and everything else at 1.
Preferably you shoule set it as 200 steps, 8 microsteps, 1:1, and 5mm.
If you edit the ini file, 320 for the scale.
Also adjust acceleration accordingly, start at 100mm/s/s , but i would not go above 500 for a mill.

sorry, i should have said, it is a 48" X 48" X 5" (working area) router table, not a mill.

i will make those settings after work.
Many thanks for your help so far :)

Sorry as i read that before, so 300 to 700 on acceleration should do just fine.

well, it has been a little while, but i think i have things sorted out with the configuration. I had to reverse the wiring for the Y axis (never noticed it before), but i got that sorted out. I am planning a dry run tomorrow with a simple G-code program to verify everything is good.

I wasn't sure how to set the soft limits, but i homed the CNC, and then jogged the axis to near the end, and made a note of the value. i then entered that into the configuration. seems to work.

Anyway, i would like to give those who helped a huge thanks :woohoo:
