It’s been quite some time since I’ve had an issue like this and I can’t for the life of me figure out whats wrong. I recently replaced my controller board (gshield) and a few worn out bearings. Now I’m getting some issues with round and diagonal cuts. Any suggestions?
I checked that. Z is perfect up and down. It only happens when going in a diagonal from bottom left to top right. Top left to bottom right is fine. Also o’s don’t make the the circle conplete
Checked your pots and tensions?
I’m with the @RobertCanning. Enough explanation. These are thumbs of the rule.
“Pots, belts, vwheels and pulley set screws. At least one of them is loose.”
Look at the underside of your belts and see if there is a worn spot.
I’ll check that. However, it happens on different spots of the x axis
Is it the same spot on the Y?
In the last 3 tests I did, yes, but it does it all over the board.
Something is slipping, there are only a few options. Are you driving a dull bit too deeply? I can’t really tell how deep you are cutting…I see it is pine…and that really points to belts or pulleys being the problem.
I just took a much better look at your photos…what depth of cut are you using? And feedrate?
I also noticed that when I move 1" along the X-axis it will move ~.9375" the first movement then 1" for the remaining ones. I’ve attempted to tighten the set screws and I’ve readjusted the belt. Still having issues.
I’m still having the same issues. I actually replaced the v-wheels on the x axis, adjusted the belt, checked the pulley tightness and ran the pots through a gambit of power and nothing seems to help. I’m stuck.
