    Hi Nathan, welcome to the forums! We’ll need a bit more information before anyone can help you input the values. What drivers/microstepping do you have? If you’re using mach 4  it should be an external controller and drivers. Since those can be any of a number of drivers, we can’t give you an accurate profile without at least that information.

    For example, if your drivers are at 1/8 micro stepping, and I give you a value appropriate for 1/16 microstepping, your machine will go twice as far with each command.

    Yep, as far as I’ve seen, Mach3/4 use either an LPT breakout box or USB equivalent or clone claiming it is “Mach X” compatible. (i.e. doesn’t work with Rambo or the like)

    If you’re using the Rambo, then you cannot use Mach 4. M4 is indeed for usb use, but the rambo is a controller in itself. You have options like Repetier Host, Pronterface, cnc.js, and chilipeppr has a marlin environment as well.
