Xyz Steps.



Ok so im at a loss.

Was following a guide on YouTube  and I made it to the end, or to where I was about to configure klicky. And I noticed my machine measures distance severely distorted. 

If I go to the front left corner and hit home. Itll make it  264 mm 

If from a homed position manual clicking 100 etc to a max of (alleged)350, the machine only makes it 174mm. I've looked over everything to do with:

Rotation Distance: 40

Microsteps 32

And steps per rotation 200 

Using standard motors that come with LDO.

Tried the calculator from prusa and they just give me these values. 

This isn't a few mm its a lot.  There's 80 mm just over 3 inch difference between auto home and using the manual buttons.

Belts are tight. 

All the min max stuff is all what it's supposed to be.

These are indeed the defaults for NEma17 motors LDO or Moons.. (and many others) 

Whats the run_current, just making sure its not losing steps, but I expect not.

After that, I would switch steppers (not the motors but the drivers) maybe with a Z motor, just to see if it makes a difference.

Is it constant? or if you do the same thing 3 times, its exactly the same?

The config looks right for a NEMA17 1.8deg motor. A thought occurs to me: what pulleys are on it? If those don't match the spec I think that might mess things up. Like having a 16 or 25 tooth where it's expecting a 20 tooth.

BTW, welcome to the forum. Think about posting in the Introductions board to...introduce yourself.
