How to get started with STEP400

After an unexpectedly long wait at the warehouse, STEP400 has finally started to be shipped from Mouser's warehouse to our supporters. Thank you for your patience!

Here is a summary of information about the first step to get STEP400 working.

Firmware update

Unfortunately, we have found a bug in the firmware after the shipment was completed. This is a bug in which the "current mode" checkbox is checked in the configuration tool, but the setting is not reflected properly when STEP400 is started. This should not be a problem in most cases, but please update the firmware if necessary. This update also corrects typos in the diagnostic tool.
The procedure for updating the firmware is described below.


Added missing commands and functions to the STEP400 documentation. The English version is due to the great contribution of Yuske Goto.


For the first steps, please follow the "tutorials" in the documentation. Currently, the Max sample file is the most comprehensive, but we will be updating the TouchDesigner sample project soon.

You can also find a slide presentation that follows the tutorial above and includes basic knowledge of stepper motors here. There is only a Japanese version available at the moment, but it is for your reference.


We' re going to use the Discussions in this Github repository as a forum, so if you have any questions or ideas, feel free to post them here.
