Laser Cutter

Laser cutter is not working well
Hristin Stoichev

The laser cutter struggled to cut some curves today. The error was not consistent. One time it cuts it right and next time distorts it. The shape on the photo was supposed to be a circle. Could the cause be the belts? Does anyone have experience with fixing that?

I have fought that battle and lost. I did a lot of cleaning and tensioning. My last answer was to slow the cut speed.


Oh. The y axis plug thing is probably loose. It’s the plug on the right hand side on the inside of the bed area behind the control panels.

the thing that we need to swap out and plug into to use the rotary tool. I’ll be in later today, I can take a look
