Hi! I’m currently an unfortunate soul dealing with a pervasive and long lasting centering/focusing loop issue that hasn’t seen much improvement or change the past 3 days and is probably going to result in me pursuing serious repairs.
However that hasn’t stopped me from trying to diagnose, understand, or deal with this issue on my own as much as possible. So- if your Glowforge is currently working I would really appreciate if you could take a moment to compare something for me. When my GF arm does move to the center of the bed on startup (sometimes it moves here before stopping, sometimes it doesn’t move at all) it travels to this cener location and I just want to confirm with an operational user that where it is stopping is the standard centering location and it going to the incorrect center location isn’t a part of this issue. So I’m attaching two images of where the head stops. I know when it is working it normally does this and then proceeds onward quickly but for me it goes directly here stops the activity so just judge this on the first location basis if you care to take the time to compare this:
Hopefully these get the point across - sorry for being long winded here. You can see it stops what I would perceive as not perfectly centered beneath the camera, which may be totally normal which is why I’m curious about this!
Thank you in advance to anyone willing to crosscheck this with me. If and when I get this sorted out I would be happy to report the details of this issue and who knows, maybe help those experiencing it in the future.
