    Default Circle problems

    hello everyone. I have a problem with machining circles. everything seems good if I just make one pass, but if I want to go deeper than one cut then as the cutter descends into the material the Y axis moves in a minus direction. It has to be something to do with settings I feel sure because it moves the same amount over with each cut down but I can not see what the problem is, can anyone help me out please?
    thank you

    You provided no background info. What software are you using, what kind of material are you cutting, what kind of cutter, pictures, videos, etc.

    This on the surface appears to be the Steps per Unit are set wrong on the Yaxis. Post your gcode you are running to do these tests. My friend has this same machine and it still has the GRBL controller but it cuts circles fine.

    Looks like it's losing steps in the Y axis. Do you have backlash comp enabled?

    Clearly Gerry could also be correct. Also check coupling tightness on that axis. My friend has same machine and his coupling came loose a day after he started using it.
