Straight Lines Appear Wavy


Lines that should be straight are wavy after cutting / engraving.

See photo below.


There could be a number of factors causing this. Usually it is a mechanical issue.


Check for the following:

  • Are the Belts are tensioned correctly? If the belts are too loose or overly tight, this could result.
  • Are the Belts are correctly routed through their idler and motor pulleys and free from twists?
  • Do the Gantry and Laser Carriages move freely on the Linear Rails?
  • Have all Linear Rails been lubricated?
  • Is the Gantry is aligned correctly as per the assembly manual?
  • Ensure the Motor Pulley set screw is sitting on the flat face of the motor shaft and sufficiently tightened.
