Baby woke up, so I haven’t been able to do anything else yet.
Restarted, tried the same file again. Same result.
Trying a different file now that I did earlier today.
Tried a different file. Didn’t restart before hand. It printed fine, but the position is significantly off.
Looks like it needs to be re-calibrated. The belts must have slipped when it was banging. Hopefully a reboot should fix it.
Have you power-cycled since then? Have you got the right material thickness? (Just going down the checklist)
I power cycled after this and it’s printing as close as it normally does. This is proofgrade, so the thickness is automatic.
Okay, did some more testing.
It’s definitely the file. It happens every time I try to engrave that file. It is a SVG that has a PNG embedded in it. When I load the PNG, it prints fine. When I load this, it freaks out.
I’m pretty sure the file is possessed . Possibly by a gremlin , maybe something more …sinister .
So, yea, here’s the file.
If you haven’t yet, it will be a big help to all of us if you send that file to Support for analysis. I mean… It sounds like it could actually cause damage. No file should make your unit perform like that.
The circle is not a path but remains a stroke, but that didn’t make a difference. I loaded it fine and it cut the circle ok. Just resized it in the GFUI.
I sent it to them with my first email. I’m assuming they are trying an exorcism.
Oh, that’s gonna turn out neat! I’d try it but… yeah I’m not gonna try it.
And that’s why Ringling Brothers is out of business.
The PNG is here. It works great.
Here is a zip file, let me know if that works.
Mobile-GrayScale_Trees Flip.zip (1.8 MB)
Here is almost but not-at-all-quite your file as an auto-traced SVG, with slightly too thick black outline.
(what can I say, It’s friday)
Here’s the document info in the file:

Does it need to be a 1000 x 1000 ppi image?
Thank you so much for letting us know about this issue! We are investigating, and I appreciate the work you all are doing here together, too!
We’ve investigated, and it looks like there’s an issue in how we handle bitmaps that have been flipped. We’ll look into this more deeply so that we can make it better for everyone.
It looks like you’re in good shape for now. If you see this behavior again, go ahead and post a new topic.
