Hi Zax, They ran freely before attaching the belts but I will certainly try that today. They both move when in operation, but one of them seems to drag, almost like the belt is too tight.....yet when I release the belt slightly, the teeth don't catch correctly. I will try what you suggest and get back here with the result. Thanks.
@stephanlaser92 It is much easier to use a program to generate G-code but you can do it manually if you wish. I don't know about Elekscam but in T2Laser you can write G-code directly to the editor or load as a text file created in notepad or similar, then you would just send it to the laser.
@r14rojo It is a lost step, it occurs when the torque from the stepper motor is lower than the friction. So either the motor current isn't set correctly, your machine has a mechanical problem or you are exceeding the feed rate / acceleration limits.
@coomz I have done many jobs around 18 hours, if you are engraving the laser is not at full power for long so there's no concern of over heating. If your stepper drivers or motors are getting hot then the current limits aren't set correctly, but once the machine is "dialed in" it can run for as long as needed.
