I’m having a problem with my laser, I’m hoping somebody on this forum may be able to help.
I am cutting and scoring a very simple file. The cutting is perfect, however when it comes to the scoring, it is scoring my design at a very slight upwards angle, therefore the scoring and cutting are not lining up.
I have checked the file and recreated it, still having the same problem. I cleaned the machine, all the lenses, the mirror, performed a recalibration and I’m still having the same issue. I’ve attached two images to give an example of what it is doing:
You can see in the first image the design, the cut, and then the cut under the design. The second image shows a bit more clearly the slope of the score. It started out in the correct place, but as it went along to the right it gradually sloped upwards. It then went back to the far left to finish off the first part of the score and was scoring 1-2mm higher than it should be.
My problem is that I can not figure out the reason, as the cutting is fine, it’s just the scoring which is off. Any advice would be hugely welcomed!
Possibly an unrelated issue but perhaps not, I’ve just turned it off to have a closer look. When pushing the laser arm to the back, when you’ve reached as far as it can go it’s pushes back towards you a bit, almost like a ‘bounce’. However when I push the laser arm all the way towards the front, it hits into the front door without giving a push back or a ‘bounce’ (which I’m sure it used to do) almost as if the thing stopping it from coming off the tracks is broken - I hope this makes sense!
