This everything I've done and all the settings. LinuxCNC Ver. 2.7.14
Stepconf Wizard settings as follows.

Axis X, Y & Z
Motor steps per revolution: 200

Distance to accelerate to max speed: 0.0250 in
Pulse rate at max speed: 64000 hz

200 x 16 x (1.0 ÷1.0) x 20.000 =

Test this axis
Velocity: .07 in /s
Acceleration: 20.0 in /s²
Left and Right jog works Excellent.
Test area also works as it should.

I’m using the Chinese Blue 5-axis controller from Sain Smart. And the MD430-V1.4 stepper driver boards with the following settings. Which work awesome when running the “Test this Axis”.

SW 1 = 1, SW 2 = 1, SW 3 = 0 for current of 2.0(A)
S1 = 0, S2 = 1 Decay mode of 50⁒
S3 = 0, S4 = 1 Excitation mode of 16 microsteps
S5 = 1, S6 = 0 Torque settings of 75⁒

With all this done in Stepconf. And with the mill responding during the “Test this Axis” for each axis. When I run the Launcher, start the machine and run the LinuxCNC default G-Code. The Axis screen shows it following the G-Code as it should. But, now NONE of the steppers on the mill are moving at all.

Thank you,
Jack “I’m stuck on this one” Burnsworth

Hi
The AXIs TEST does pull all pins not related to STEP DIR High
maybe your ESTOP Routine pins arent correct set

What Controller interface is it
