open loop miss following

Question: I want an open loop stepper motor to follow the motion of a closed loop step motor synchronized as close as possible. I am using the ASG/BSG output on the AZ driver as the pulse and direction signal on the CVD driver. The master is operating as expected, but the follower is miss stepping. ...
