Achieving rotational accuracy with steppers

For the SCARA (Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm) that I’m building for the course project, the rotation accuracy at the joints is critical to achieving overall accuracy. The stepper motors that I have are 200 steps per revolution which amounts to 1.8 deg per step. The accuracy is +/- 5% which means a rotational angle uncertainty of 0.18 deg (best possible). …
