I’ve got a chinese laser using the newer Ruida controller. On larger files, sometimes I have found that part of my cuts are offset to one side or another, almost as you’d expect from a slipping belt.
After tightening the belts and having the “offset” happen again, I noticed that small readout screen on the laser matched what I was seeing cut into my material. In my understanding, if it was a slipping belt the image on the lasers screen would look as expected - not all offset and wrong.
After some googling I have seen varying opinions that data can be lost in the transfer between the PC and laser. I am wondering if this is what is happening here and if anyone has any advice as to what I can do to solve it. I am using a USB cable that was provided with my laser.
I have also read that a motor driver could possibly be the culprit. Any truth to this?
Apricate any help! Thanks!
