    With the newest software did you reload the firmware

    Ok, just reinstalled new software. Did not update firmware and it would not work. Updated firmware and it works. But I'm wondering if I'm using wrong software. Other poster said I should be on 3.6.46.

    Intereeting though. Ran my test file, it was finally slower! And didn't stall on long run! I think the speed was overloading the motors...

    Ok. The stalling has STOPPED! The problem is that no matter what I set the speed settings to in the software it was apparently trying to use 30 (or 1800ipm). Once I reloaded everything, i set it to 10 (600ipm) and the problem is fixed. But I took a video of the sounds its making and I'm hoping one of you can confirm these sounds to be normal. Seriously, thank you all for the suggestions and help, even though a lot of the suggestions turned out to not be the problem, I know my setup is better for having had this conversation.

    I suggest instead of running circles, you run each axis by itself to isolate which one is making the noise. It doesn't sound too bad though. It might be normal for your machine.

    That is what my PRS sounds like when cutting circles. You may want to slow it down just a little yet
