Laser position offset

I am running 5.5w diobe with woodpecker control board. I have my position set to bottom left corner and project set when project starts it is fine tben it goes out of position. When I reset to start over the laser is lining up in middle of project not back at bottom left. Sainsmart 3018-proUploading: Screenshot_20200215-111414.png…

Do you have homing / limit switches on this machine? If not, you’ll never have proper repeatable positioning.

No I do not have either

If you reset the board you’ll lose positioning, and will have to manually re-zero the controller by jogging to the home position (front-left) and typing G92 X0 Y0 into the console (sets the current position to be X0 Y0).

Did that was going good then skipped again

Starts out then jogs

If it’s skipping steps you might need to lower the acceleration or speed settings.
