I bought my Glowforge back in May of this year and it was working fine until the “Stuck on Centering/Focusing” issue that I’ve seen so many people post about. Currently GF is sending me a replacement cable, but I’m wondering why this happened so I can be more mindful and prepared in the future. Has anyone figured out what the cause is? Were machines from a certain time period affected with a faulty lid cable? Is it a “natural cause” of frequent use?
As many people here, I run a small business and cannot afford the stress of taking 1-2 weeks off from production. I am almost wondering if I should purchase (outside of my warranty) additional lid cables. I am not sure what the most common GF problems are and would love to get a sense of how I should prepare for future issues that don’t require sending the entire lasercutter in for repair (I wonder how common this is, but it’s one of my nightmares).
Thanks in advance,
