My camera has been blurry since the first day I got my machine. It’s never been able to read a proofgrade QR code, and I can’t use it to reliably align my designs on materials I’m engraving when I need precision.
I recently learned that there is a camera calibration procedure I can do to get the camera to work properly. I’ve tried the process 4 times now, ruined a couple pieces of MDF in the process, and it always ends with a message that says:
The process was interrupted, so no changes were made to your calibration.
as well as a little popup message that says:
After completing measurements, no improvements were found. The alignment of your system was not changed by the calibration process.
I’ve tried all of the following:
- Connecting the machine to a different, higher bandwidth WiFi connection (I’ve tried directly to my comcast connection, to my nest mesh connection that has a spot in the same room, and directly to my FiOS connection which is about 14 feet from the Glowforge)
- Repositioning the material to be right at the edge of the crumb tray (it was the first couple of times, I tried again to be sure)
- Cleaning the camera lens each time with a Zeiss cleaning wipe
- Making sure there was no movement at all in the room to prevent any vibrations from interfering
Each time the calibration process says it’s processing measurements and preparing to make changes, then it just says Not Completed. How do I get this to work?
