I don’t know why or how but my machine is getting out of alignment. I’ve made dozens of coasters and they all turned out ok and the quality was the same. Recently though my machines alignment got way off. Like I’d have to place the image how id want it then Down Arrow up to 11 times sometimes to get it aligned in the area I want. Now I stared making coasters again but now I cant replicate the quality. Theyre more dark even on lower settings and not as sharp.
Also after the speed update I noticed my machine homing on startup started slamming back and I noticed a speck of something inside the lens that’s unaccessible easily.
How do I fix this?
I’ll upload some images and video.
Worth checking–as after 2 years I thought I knew what I was doing–but had odd results–very different from same material & settings that I’d recently done, and turned out I installed my mirror upside down after cleaning… and I think it also did cause the alignment to be off, too!
Since this problem is being seen on materials that were purchased from another company, we can’t offer support for prints that don’t come out as expected. Materials may vary widely from piece to piece, even if they’re created by the same manufacturer. I’m going to move it to Beyond the Manual so other folks here can help. Should this happen with a print on Proofgrade materials, please open a new ticket in Problems and Support and we’ll help you right away!
Run the Gift of Good Measure (GoGM) on proofgrade and post photos and times (including location). They will then be able to check the logs and verify. You’ll not they didn’t close the thread - just let you know they can’t respond until you test with PG.
