General Mach Discussion / Diagonal Lines not smooth

I can try a different file.
I export my .DXF's from Solidworks, ik can try some autocad files to see is there is any change.

We do not use a belt drive. We use a system of linear guides and gears.
Do you think backlash is still an issue?

The mechanics is fixed. The machine sounds and rides good, all the bearings are tightened.
Mach3's tool path show's the wavy pattern inside the program. 
Machsupport said : It could be EMF or Noise in the system. Do you have access to an Oscilloscope to test with?

Not sure how to test this...

Hi All,

Recently i encountered a problem when cutting diagonal lines.
First i tried to look if there were any hardware problems, some bearings were a little loose but nothing serious.
My second step was looking if the problem still occurred when using the axis separately.
This resulted in clean cuts.

The wavy pattern can be traced back to the tool path. Here you can see the "point" dance around the actual cutting line.

Does somebody have any idea how to solve this?

Thanks in advance,
