    Hi,

    Wish I had waited for bit and invested better components...
    That's a common refrain.

    Okay, mach4 is 200€ and uccnc 50€ and lasering is not my primary jobs
    Looking at the investment you are considering does 150Euro matter that much? Relative to the hardware cost it small beer.

    After all you said: 'and cheapest solutions is pain'...not me.

    Well I have heard good from UCCNC but mach4 what I have heard is still work in progress. but if guys out there got working combinations with mach3 and steppers I should get my system reliable with mach3 too. otherwise UCCNC or Mach4 doesn't make difference.

    Update from testing:

    Today tried Z axis stepper removed from leadscrew so It was plain stepper spinning. I marked it and give it same program again and suprise, still losing steps.. If feedrate is same both ways it wont "lose" steps of course it loses, but same amount for bot directions so the endpoint is same as starting.. but that's how it works or.... not.

    seems that those TB6600 leds are lighting up as stepper makes "bigger" noise. like resonance or something.

    It's very hard to troubleshoot lost steps with a parallel port system, as it could be 100 different things causing it.

    If you are using Mach3, was is your pulse width setting? Try setting them all to 15.

    Hello.

    I'm using chinese mach3 usb motion board, but as well tried it with GRBL. same results.

    Could steppers be problem?

    drived couple minutes ago baby teether from maple and there is lost steps in every axis. step downs are clearly seen at X+ and y+ sides, but not on X- and Y- sides.

    Problem found. It was drivers of cheap usb motion board. With updated drivers it won't lose steps anymore. Thanks for everyone here!
