CUTTING ISSUE - Cuts jagged and fall off path

Hey y’all,

I’m having issues with my router lately - this seems to be happening more and more and I’m unsure if it’s maintenance related or not. My cuts seem to be falling off path and appear jagged at curves. Please see attached images of the cut file and cut made. This has been happening over and over again - not sure if it’s due to loose components or what.

Also, just a side note: this has been happening with all materials and bits. I cut out a lot of 3/4" pine ply and the same thing happens with my 1/8" and 1/4" bits.

Any help on this would be amazing.
Thank you kindly,

Something is probably loose/flexing. If the cutter forces are too large or something is too weak / not rigid it will deflect. I´d check the machine for any play.
