I’ve owned my 1000mm X-Carve for about two years now and have made hundreds of projects with it with very little issues. I am currently using Vetric Vcarve for layout and toolpaths and using Easel to send operate the CNC. The machine has a couple upgrades, such as the tbd cnc 9mm belt upgrade, and stiffeners. The X-carve has sat idle for the past 3-4 months with no use as I had to replace the computer that was controlling it.
All of my carves are coming out to be about 20-25% smaller in scale than what I specified through Vcarve. I have made straight line test cuts and I have confirmed that it is not the file I am working with but happens to any file. So for example, something that should be 2" long is about 1.6" long.
What I have Tried:
- I have uninstalled and reinstalled the machine via easel.
- Downloaded the latest drivers through Easel
- Tried using Pic Sender
All has yielded the same results. So I think I have narrowed it down to a problem with the machine itself (perhaps the controller?)…
Does anyone have some ideas I could try? Thank you
