    I’ve been reading through a lot of the forum posts on getting a smoother movement of the X and Y axis. My steppers seem like they may be struggling a little. Is it recommended to sand the rails? It is not in the assembly instructions so I was curious. I havent drawn the crown yet(hopefully tonight). Here is the first GCODE I sent to it. https://youtu.be/eXs0X2MOPu0 And no im not done assembling(Ryan if your reading this I will trim those zip ties and get my cable chain installed :P)

    Not really necessary.  The zinc will flake off with use.
