Ok a (hopefully) final update, I think I’ve finally solved the skipping steps problem. Tightening the belts is a must to reducing skipped steps, as well as using the printed bearings previously mentioned. It helps if the belts have some sort of belt tension adjustment like the MPCNC corner belt clip or this. After tightening up the belt, lubricating the conduits, and setting the proper VREFs I’m finally getting consistent prints!
