Axis movements too smooth. (not stepping)

Hi again folks, for some reason, my steppers motors don’t “step” when they are moving… instead each time I hit the axis arrows, it moves about a inch and almost seems to come to an idling stop, rather than immediate. Is there a setting I need to update or a wiring issue that I need to check out?

Have you made sure all your V wheels are tight enough, none of them should spin freely? Not overly tight either, but enough that each wheel has pressure on it.

Yes, the wheels are all applying moderate pressure on the rails.

Grbl does some acceleration control, so it shouldn’t jerk to a halt.
