Motors skipping

Using software lightburn

Hi Adam, If your motors are skipping/ dropping steps, there are a few things we can try. In the config file we set the default max speed, acceleration, and motor current optimistically, so they may need some adjusting.

You may need to increase the current and decrease max speed/ acceleration, in that order.

Check the section Updating the Config File in the guide linked below for notes on how to change those values. (You probably only need to read up to step 8.)

The page on Changing Stepper Motor Currents on the LaserBoard may also prove useful.

Hopefully making those changes will get things moving more smoothly.

Hi Adam, what laser machine do you have? Looks like a custom job? I like the bed and the guide ruler …what is it? And how do I get one?
