Engraving jumps

Why is my glowforge skipping during an engrave? I have tightened the carriage belt as much as it will let me and it still seems loose. Should I unscrew it from the carriage plate and make the belt shorter?

Welcome to the forum.
A picture of what you are seeing would be very helpful in determining what problem you may be having.

Do not make your belt shorter, and do not start tightening and loosening screws just yet.


Hi there @holimanbridgett - I’ve just come across your email ticket and sent along some next steps to make sure you’re all taken care of.

Please keep an eye out for it! I’m going to go ahead and close this topic so we can finish up via email.
