    The X axis with the xPro v4 is really quiet and smooth but the Y axis is loud. The belts seem fine but just wondering if anyone else has run in to this?

    Any chance of a video?
    Is it mechanically loud or electrical loud, if you see what I mean?

    mechanically. I took the X axis off and both the Y axis seem to be really not right so I will see what I can figure out before doing a video as the electrical is all removed again.

    Is your Y driven by 2 motors or 1?
    If 2 they could be going out of sync. Are they fed from one shared port, or 2 independent ports?

    Two, I think I figured it out. It appears the acro rails loosened up so the X was perfectly smooth but the Y both had too much play. I'm working to resolve this. When it would go back and forth it had too much slop so it bangs because it isnt locked to the rail but I'm still not sure why both the Y axis rails slipped.
