I started this thread because I need a bit of help calibrating the distance the stepper motors move the bed and extruder assembly. When I give manual commands in repeiter host, the motors are only moving their respective axis about half the distance of what i'm telling it to. x and y aren't too big of a deal as i could just tell it to print twice as large, but z kind of matters, as it doesn't move up enough, and will just smash the print around with the extruder nozzle. I noticed the problem after reinstalling the firmware following the instructions here: (http://bukobot.com/bukobot-marlin-configuration
). not sure if it was doing this before then or not.
I've got a Vanilla with an x3 control board, running it on windows 7.
anyone have any insight into how to fix this?
