    James chin up this is all just part of building your own machine and it's just teething troubles.
    It's not uncommon to have little issue's like this and thats why I say to people to give there machines lots of running in time to iron out the bugs before tackling any big or expensive job's.!! . . . . Believe me it could be far worse imagine "striking" out . .Opp's. . mean forking out 5K and have machine that couldn't even do that.

    Between us we'll have you sorted and dancing round the garage in no time. .:dance:

    Now check everything's tight like you said, whind it up and down by hand feeling for sticky spot's if any major sticks then chances are thats your issue.!. . . BUT . . before doing anything major like striping the Z axis down this is what you could do just to verify it is a sticking Z axis.!. . . . Pack or lift the material higher so the Z axis works in a different place then cut another.

    If you want a chat then it's my day off, use the number. . . BUT . . we'll have none of this girly wanting to cry shit round here.!!. . . . Only Yorkie eaters need apply..:lmao:

    Well I did as suggested and lowered my cutting bed by 20mm and recut my carving relief I also slowed down the finish pass to 360m/min and the results where the same.

    my current velocity is set at 3000 and acceleration is set to 600

    what would your next move be ??

    Naive view from newbie alert.

    Have you tried carving a similar but different relief?

    Tried feeding the G-code through Cutview to see if its a mistake in the actual code?

    Hello Adam

    No not yet but still working on it and still hopeful I'm currently waiting on the results of the code being read to see if it's with in the G-Code also I think someone is cutting it on their machine to find out if it's also with in the G-Code

    but thank you for the interest and keeping this post alive
