I’m using Proofgrade medium draftboard and the laser is not cutting all the way through. It cuts enough to punch it out but not clean at all and the back of the piece gets shredded in the process. I believe I have a similar problem to this post: Not cutting through on proofgrade settings
Lens, mirror, and other components are spotless. Initially the comb tray was not sitting flush, so I corrected that thinking that it would fix it. It helped, but did not fix the problem - I’m still having to punch out the pieces, but only for draftboard. Wood and everything else works fine.
Yeah, since the other things have been checked, I had thought humidity too, but more from a standpoint of causing just enough warp/swelling in the draftboard to make it not cut completely through with the default settings.
I assume you’re pinning it down during the cuts @pford ? To make sure it’s completely level? I live in a high humidity area and I have to pin everything down, even if it looks perfectly flat.
Cause it’s usually not.
I use these:
A few of these will let me cut through badly warped (over 1/8th inch) quarter inch goofgrade from Home Depot. I never have a problem with the PG stuff as long as I use a couple to stick the wood down flat.
