Mis shapes occurring

Hi all,
I am after assistance. (again). I am getting used to my new Ortur LM3 and i have cause to cut out simple shapes (circles / squares) However, the laser starts at “A” and should return to complete the shape. It is missing the join and the shape is skewed. EG. A circle looks like an oval but not joined up!
Any help would be more then appreciated thanks. Using Lightburn newest version

From what you’re describing, this sounds like a mechanical issue - possibly something as simple as a loose belt. Check to make sure your belts are tight, the wheels are not snagging anywhere, the laser head is mounted firmly and not wobbling, all your stepper pinions are snug, none of the set screws are loose, and that there is no dirt or debris on the rails. With your machine off, you should be able to roll the laser head smoothly across the rails.

Thanks for the heads up ! I’m away working at the moment but will attend to this ASAP.
