Re: stepper motor always become uneven

I doesn't seem to wobble or make any usual noise. after every movement one side will be slightly higher than the other. It seems like one stepper motor is maybe moving faster or rotating more than the other.

stepper motor always become uneven

I have a GEEETECH Prusa I3 Pro X and before every print I have to level my Z axis. After I level the axis it becomes uneven every time I move the Z axis up or down. Has anyone else have this problem? And is there any fix to this problem?

Thanks,
Jason
