So correct me if I am wrong. One of the capabilities of the GF that I am most excited for is the Autofocus feature. I’m super stoked to engrave on wood with heavy grain, or other irregular objects.
On the main page they say this “The lens moves as the laser travels, so you can cut & engrave materials that are curved, uneven, or irregular.”
My question is how irregular?
For example if I was planning on engraving the top of a Lego piece (pre GF). I would set two paths. on that hits the top of the nubs, and one for the bottom/root. Because as the laser travels the change in z would be almost instant. Does the GF need this step? Does it automatically break up the work into layers?
It seems to me that the GF would be limited by how fast the Z can adjust. So, when the GF is rastering how steep of a slope can it compensate for? Does it scan the whole piece and develop a 3D Z tool path?
So many questions on how they pull this off. I haven’t seen much conversation about this feature in the forums. Anyone else thought much about this?
