    Along with that, something you can try in your design file, is to uncheck "Sharp external corners". This helps to keep a slight load on the tool as it makes the corner instead of a stop/start right...

    I have a spare Alpha drive that was initially purchased for a future indexer, but never got there. It would work for that or a second Z axis, some other project or a spare. No cables included.
