X carve created a step when cutting out shape

A guy I work with practices a martial art that using wooden swords to train with. He wanted to see if I could cut them on the X-carve and being new to the machine, I figured that it would be a nice way to get used to the machine. It cut out the really well, except the first pass looked like it was “inside the line” and the remaining cut were “on the outside of the line”. Hopefully that makes sense. Basically the machine left a step. It added that “step” the entire way around the shape it was supposed to cut out. I added the easel link also.


your machine might be losing steps.

review the post linked regarding missed steps and go over the calibration ones as well. I hope this helps!
