Why could my K40 drift?

Postby Stalon » Sat Oct 24, 2015 3:44 am

H i guys
I have this K40 laser cutter which has been working well for the last 7 months. A week a go i found out that the interior cuts were not properly aligned. The effect is also evident on the exterior cuts. I realized that it was drifting on bot x and y axes. What could b e the cause of this drift?

I could say that it's due to loose or too tight belts. However this could have affected the whole the whole system functioning. But having a look at it will not break any bone.

Could it be due to very high travel speed? Why don’t you try slowing it down a bit.
