Ok folks… I need to tap into the ‘cumulative wisdom’ for a bit of clarification…
New user, so as such I’m trying to wrap my head around facts, fantasy, procedures, and limits.
Here my question:
Maximum focus height of item being worked using crumb tray = 0.5”
Maximum focus height of item being worked from the Glowforge floor = 2.0”
Both of these values I believe are in the documentation as well as ‘general knowledge’.
Now in my case… the height of my crumb tray is 1.365”… and if I add the additional height of 0.5” that brings the hight (using the tray, measured from the floor) up to 1.865”… which is 0.135” shy of the 2.0” mark (also measure from the floor).
My question is: In my case, with my values… can is USE that extra 0.135” of height for items I’m printing using the tray and consider my “tray max” to be (crumb-tray-height) + (0.50 + 0.135)?.. instead of just 0.5” (tray max).
Logically, and 2.0” item sitting on the floor would be exactly the same focal distance away from the head as an 0.635” item sitting on the tray (using ‘my’ tray height numbers).
It would obviously be nice to be able to work with that bit of ‘extra’ space when using the tray.
What am I missing here?.. is there a problem I’m not seeing?
