    Without any information I am going to guess you have an allthread Z axis and did not change the Z axis steps per mm. to match your board, step rate, drivers, etc.

    No, just the third one. They correspond to X Y Z, only your Z is different.

    Re-download or unzip a fresh copy. Make sure you only change that one number.

    So I have the firmware updated and working. Is there a value I need to change on the Z-axis in Eslcam or I should be good now?

    You can test it by following the site instructions, move the axis a know amount with repetier host, and measure it.
