-The number of steps on the stepper motor drivers ​smoothie needs to generate ​if it wants to move the filament 1 millimeter.+We need to find the number of steps on the stepper motor drivers ​have to generate ​in order to move the filament 1 millimeter.
  
 This value depends on your stepper motor, the microstepping on your stepper motor drivers, the gear reduction ratio on the extruder assembly if any and the diameter of your hobbed pulley/​bolt. This value depends on your stepper motor, the microstepping on your stepper motor drivers, the gear reduction ratio on the extruder assembly if any and the diameter of your hobbed pulley/​bolt.
