Use the table below for your initial grbl setup of your 3018NC-PRO Desktop CNC Router. You may fine tune these variables as your application dictates. Note: Settings are given below for 8x micro stepping – if your controller uses another micro stepping value, you’ll need to adjust your steps/mm accordingly.
