Cleaning the Glowforge Pro

Trying to put the belt back on after cleaning and there is no give to put back on the wheel. Any helpful hints

It’s more of hitting the right angle than needing give.

Presuming you’re right hand dominant (if left, reverse everything):

  • Put the carriage plate to the right of center
  • Hook the left side of the belt on correctly
  • With your right hand place the belt against the back of the wheel on the right - it’ll only barely go over the edge
  • Move your left hand to the carriage plate and start pulling it left slowly
  • With the thumb of your right hand push up on the edge of the belt that’s going around the wheel as it’s slowly rotating
  • Cheer when it pops onto the wheel

I assume that you have watched the Glowforge video. There is a long time Glowforge user who has a video that may help as well. Starting at about the 5:35 mark he shows how to put the belt back on. Glowforge Tutorial: Removing the Carriage Plate to Clean the Air Assis – Big Blue Laser Designs
