I am getting pretty tired of all the problems I have encountered with my short time with GF and how much material it has ruined.
Today I am encountering that it just does NOT cut the same strength horizontally as it does vertically. Why is this? When the artwork was rotated and I cut it vertically, it cut perfect. I was excited I found perfect settings.
So to fit on a sheet of leather, I have some that are horizontal oriented. I cut an entire sheet, and it didnt even cut through and it looks like it cuts vertically just fine, but the horizontal lines are iffy. Why would it only cut some of the time? How is that precision? Someone explain to me why a laser that I would assume does not vary in power while cutting, somehow only cuts ‘some’ of the time.
I know what someone is going to say, lower the speed. I’ve lowered the speed multiple times now, I even have 2 (TWO!) passes for leather, I shouldnt even have to lower it any more. If I lower it more, it practically sets the leather on fire. My current setting is 150 speed and 100% power. 2 passes. 2 passes and it still isnt cutting all the way thru. Something isn’t right
Someone else is going to ask if I am using proofgrade leather. I am not. But that doesn’t answer or explain the lines that are only sometimes cut
