    Hi all,

    I have finally finished my build after having the machine for a long period of time. While Jogging the machine in UGS, I get quite a bit of vibration on the gantry when jogging on the y axis. Once it is moving it runs smooth but will then vibrate when it comes to a stop or when it starts up. The X and Z axis are fine. When I disconnect the motors from belts on the Y axis, I can move the gantry by hand quite easily so I do not believe it is a mechanical issue. I have spent many hours reading online trying to solve this problem but have so far not had any luck. Also I have adjusted the pots on the xPro in 1/8 turns. If I go forward or back just 1/8 from their current position they will either stall or going the other way they will make the motors produce a clicking sound and throw up errors in UGS (current set to high).

    I have also installed the double belt mod on the X and Y axis.

    I have also spent a lot of time adjusting the GRBL settings on the xPro. Is there a way to start and stop the motors on the y axis in a smother motion? Sorry if the wording might sound a bit off. This is all very new to me as I have just got the machine running.

    Thanks - Rich
