Finally got around to setting up my GF and made my first project, an etched address sign.
I did one in Redwood, but the grain was too pronounced, so I tried another in mahogany. That came out pretty good, but not as deep as I was hoping.
The original etch was at 100% power and two passes and that all went well. I wanted to do 3 or 4, but the image was too complex at the resolution to do 3 passes in a single run. I went back to the project and without any changes went to run it again, but as you can see in the following photo, it started off the cut about 3/16" off from the previous time it ran. I cancelled it quickly, turned the GF off and back on to recalibrate. I ran the project again and this time it started even further off (the other line sticking out the bottom).
Is there any way to get any accuracy/repeatability on the GF? I had my stock taped down to the bottom of the GF with the tray removed. It should not have shifted at all, especially since the first two pass print lined up perfectly.
