so… as a happy new owner of a glowforge, i started with thebasics… the founder’s ruler, the “infinite wave” square design… and then an engrave…
i figured shutting down between each print would be fine, or that each time i did, perhaps my “problem” would be fixed as the cutting head realigned itself… but alas… NO.
so far (3 out of 3) what i “see” in the camera for “placing” the art, and where it actually CUTS on the proofgrade wood are maybe 1/2" to 3/4" off?
the “before” and “after” camera prints corroborate this… and ive been reading through these posts to find a “simple” fix… but nothing really hits the vast alignment im experiencing…
BEFORE (where it “looks” like where im placing the image)
AFTER (where it actually printed)
this was the first time i decided to screen cap the “before”
the “after” image always displays at end of print and here is another of the “infinite waves” job completion result
what’s going on? and how can i fix this?
(because my next job depends on HITTING the center of a 4x4 coaster… and theres no way i can see this working.
