Sample INI FilesIf you would like your working rt-stepper ini file posted here please email it to my email address below.
Note although these ini files are still valid, some may be old and may not have all the latest options. If you are going to use one, you should compare it with the default rtstepper.ini file that came with your software release.
These are actual ini files that I used with my CNC controllers.
