Not following path when carving using pocket function

Hi,

I have problem with easel not folloing path when carving pocket. First run is OK, but half way thru secund run the x jumps 3,5 cm. See picture. I have tighten all screevs etc. Any idea what I do wrong?

Most likely lost steps, most likely due to machine not able to carve effectively the feed/depth rate you are at.
If the bit is sharp, go less deep.

GShield or X-controller?

I use the GShield. I will try with less feeding speed.

here is a tutorial on how to set the current limits X-Carve Maintenance/Troubleshooting Videos - Add Your Own!

Thanks :slight_smile:

Try shallower depth per pass before slowing down feed rate.
With the gshield unless you have already will benefit from being adjusted to correct current limit for the motors. I suspect they are being powered below their optimum limit. Underpowered = more easily steps lost.
