Can I edit the e-steps on my UM3?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Can I edit the e-steps on my UM3?

The parts coming off of our UM3 are different in the X and Y axis.  For example.  I have a round part here that's 1.255" in one axis and 1.233" in the other axis.  


Is there a way to correct this differently in the X versus the Y direction?  I'd just update the e-steps on my DIY printer.

    Changing the e-steps should not be necessary on an UM3. Maybe you want to check your axles for play - that is what usually causes one axis to deviate more than the other from the default value.
