I’ve had unreproducible but increasingly frequent alignment issues.
Most of these issues have been minor but this morning I wasted half of a sheet of proofgrade clear acrylic and I’m pretty upset about the waste of material.
Since I haven’t been able to reproduce the issues, I haven’t made any support tickets. This is primarily a complaint since I can’t offer any "it happens when . . . " scenarios and so far it seems really random. We haven’t been able to determine any patters to it so far.
So far every time it’s happened, if I redo the print with no changes to the settings/file/etc. then it prints fine the second time.
Two nights ago I started a print and early in the print I noticed there was an alignment shift during the print. I stopped the print, moved the image over and restarted it with no other changes and the whole thing printed without any issues.
Material was proofgrade medium maple plywood and it happened early in the print so there was minimal loss.
This morning I didn’t really notice how bad the problem was until I actually pulled it all out and started putting it together. I thought maybe I’d messed the lines up when I was moving the file around and I just didn’t notice, then I got back to my computer and saw that the lines looked perfect.
Material was proofgrade clear acrylic and I’ve ruined half a sheet.
Side note - I only just noticed that it thought it was plywood. Although that shouldn’t have affected where the lines were happening (which is the problem) I guess when I adjusted the acrylic to be able to use the corner, I moved the qr code out of range of the camera and rather than keep the acrylic setting, it decided to use the last thing I’d set manually which was the plywood and I didn’t notice until now.
It still cut through the material.
UPDATE: Since it was suggested I include this information -
