43 & up 113.00 113.00 113.00 97.00
If updating to version 43 or higher from 41 or lower, you may need to lower the steps per mm back to the previous values.
Motion Controller version 43 is not yet available for download. It may be shipping on new units but testing is needed to make sure it is okay to use with previous released printers.

  1. Send command “M503” (Sending G-code)
    • Must connect via USB. “M503” will not give response via WiFi.
  2. Look for:
    • “Steps per unit:”
    • “M92 X56.50 Y56.50 Z56.50 E48.50”

“E48.50” in the example above are the E steps per mm


NOTE: When sending commands manually there needs to be a space between the command and the parameters.
For example:
G92E0 needs to be G92 E0
