Programming a NEMA 17 stepper motor to microstep with an Arduino?

Asked by Jonathan_hodgkins (678points) December 6th, 2017

I am trying to control a NEMA 17 stepper (1.8 degree, 200 rev) with an Arduino and a motor shield. The movements are a little jerky.

How can I program this motor to do microsteps and make the movement smoother?

This motor only has two windings. Do I need a different motor?
