Hey guys, I don’t know which part to replace, I’ve tried everything and still having issues with flat finishes.
So I have replaced my Z rod, I have tighened all the belts, cleaned all the rollers, made sure all the rollers are making good contact.
Sorry not good with the axises but when its going forward and backwards its fine, it doesn’t leave them. It only creates these when going cross left and right.
It looks like the bit just doesn’t sit straight and seems to get worse, it also jumpy when I go left and right, like it studders, even on no load just using my arrows with no material its jumpy.
Left and right is angled and jumpy…
You can see the artifacts in this video:
It looks terrible, and when carving out boxes or flattening a surface it just means so much freaking sanding! It also means when i cut something out with any size bit it leaves layer artifacts on the sides which is more sanding… I have seen so many machines not do this…
But mine has one it since the day I set it up, so clearly what ever is wrong was faulty but i donno what to replace…
I’m guessing @JustinBusby meant to type “slop”. Basically, you can loosen the screws and try to rotate the twist out of your X-axis. You can also try using shims to get it square.
