    Default Need help with resolution problem!

    DIY engraver, running Artcam. When I send a perfect circle to engraver it gives me an oblong cut. This happens with every object I send to engraver. Somehow the output never duplicates the input resolution or size specifications whether I input mm or inches. When I jog any axis with setting of 10mm it will only travel 5mm using grbl controller..
    Update: x and z axis are responding accurately, it's the y axis that's only traveling half the distance of the
    command sent? Would this be a problem with the lead screw?

    I would say that it's a Y axis calibration problem. Maybe the steps per rev are set incorrectly on the drive? Or, the steps / mm are set incorrectly in the controller?
