HiThe main changes I made are:on the mechanical part:1: I have decreased the useful area, now I can actually engrave a dimension of (380mmx340mm).2: I replaced Nema 17 with Nema 23 (2A, 24v).3: I used a threaded rod (shown above) . Which is 8mm / round. So to calculate the step/mm; 200/8 = 25 steps to travel 1mm. I used TB6560 stepper driver cards. So I set the switches ((Sw1 = 1, SW2 = 0, SW3 = 1, S1 = 0) = 2A, Also for the micro steps mode, I used 1/8 steps, so S3 = 1, S4 = 1).The stepper motor must do (25x8) steps to move 1mm.=====\$100= 200.000 and also \$101=200.000.I made corrections to have a perfect alignment of all moving mechanical parts.I also changed the config.h file to my needs...............I use a laser (shown above) that supports TTL and PWM, so I used pin 11 of the A...

(only on grbl V1.1)Now, I can also print raster image (PWM laser mode).And in final, I'm sorry for my bad english.

Hi I finally finished building a new laser engraver, I changed several parameters, now it works very well. a lot of precision, less noise, more speed.

HiYes indeed, I think it’s a mechanical problem, because I noticed that I have a lot of backlash on both axes (x and y).Indeed, during the mechanical construction, I didn’t work well the support nuts of the axes, especially x axis.Now I’m doing the mechanical part again. I will change the M10 threaded rod With CNC threaded rods that I ordered from AliExpress. https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/600mm-3d-Printer-Parts-8mm-Shaft-Threaded-Rod-Stainless-steel-Leadscrew-T8-Nut-for-CNC-3D/32843915280.html?spm=a2g0w.search0204.3.83.1517629awfrr5k&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2_10152_10151_10065_10344_10068_5722815_10342_10343_10340_5722915_10341_5722615_10696_10084_10083_10618_10307_5722715_10059_100031_10103_10624_10623_10622_5722515_10621_10620,searchweb201603_36,...
