LinuxCNC for the Home Hobbyist - EP 15 - Computing Steps Per Machine Unit (Rack & Pinion)

In this episode I discuss some gear theory explaining the difference between Diametral Pitch and Module gears. I give formulas and explain how to calculate their Diametral Pitch or Module value. Additionally, I explain how to calculate the steps per machine unit for both Diamteral and Module gears both with and without gear reductions.
