Is it true that adding gears to x/y axis we get backlash, reducing the precision of the machine. Anyone has a machine that has it? What would be the best gear reduction and model.

How about 2 to 5 times reduction. Will I get more precision?

Which stepper do you consider the best?

1/32 half steps would be better than 1/16.

@George_Salgueiro You will get a higher resolution but sacrifice speed. The key is to find the balance that works for you. More components add their own errors to the final result…

@William_Frick i increase the resolution, but what about the precision?
