Can you post a copy of the GCode for the cut you have posted the picture of.

Also what velocity and acceleration are the motors set at.

after you run the cut, if you press GO TO ZERO , does it return to the same zero position (this will show if you are losing steps )

trying to eliminate the options...

Yes, it does go back to zero, See attached for acceleration etc. G code:

Still nothing obvious,  sorry....

can you tell if it is effecting 1 axis only ?

try cutting/drawing some horizontal lines and then vertical lines separately, so only 1 axis is in use at a time.

I'm sure you have checked for mechanical "slack" in the system? and the floating head mechanism ?

bearings ? gantry is at 90 degrees to the long axis ( not crabbing as mentioned earlier)
