Simple Pulley and Belt Resolution Calculator
Motor Poles steps/rev  

This is used to calculate the resolution of a very simple drive system of a stepper motor driving a belt and the driven item is attached to the belt.

You can use any units as long as you are consistent

Divide by belt pitch to get number of teeth MXL = 0.08, XL = 0.20 inches
