This will fix any sway or under power I had before. Also there is a stronger motor on the secondary gantry [Y-Axis]. This motor will be in charge of moving the carriage. And, finally, there is a smaller motor to lift the carriage [Z-Axis].
I have reduced the resolution of the motors - Micro Step were just too much for my PC [LunixCNC]. I don't blame the program. I will continue to us LinuxCNC. I just have an older PC. Besides, the cutting surface is only 12" x 12" [300mm x 300mm] (or so) so I don't think I will notice.
But, it sure moves now!
This was my first attempt at carving a relief. The program takes a grey scale image representing height and then scans it back and forth creating a continuous path for the cutter to follow.
...as you can see I still need practice setting it up. It should have cut deeper. But, the cutter moved like it was supposed to.
