How many encoder steps on LCD display?

Postby jevs » Fri Dec 22, 2017 3:28 pm

Can anyone confirm how many steps the encoder knob has on the LCD display? My knob is busted off (shipping damage). I want to pick up a replacement, but I am not sure how many positions it should have.

Thanks

The rotary encoders are "infinite". There's no stops in them. If yours was damaged in shipping, I'd contact support@seemecnc.com and they'll fix you up.

The answer is: 20 steps

My other machine has a 30 step encoder. Of course they only had 12 and 30 step encoders at the electronics store, which I bought both. I could not access my printer before buying them (hour drive away).
I think I will try the 30 step and see how it works since this will match my other machine that uses basically the same LCD display.

Oh, this was not shipping damage from SeeMeCNC. I bought the printer used and it got damaged on the way from them. SeeMeCNC does not have the encoder by itself. They sell the whole display.
