I’ve been working with my GF Pro now for three weeks and everything’s been fine (camera seems a bit out of focus but it doesn’t prevent me from using it). Today I decided to take the plunge and use the passthrough slot.
I have an item I’m interested in selling and being able to go from maxing out at 11 inches to 17 would be huge but it entails making use of the passthrough slot. My first attempt on a piece of 19" x 19" x 1/4" birch plywood worked out fine except that I thought I knew better than the computer about alignment. The picture didn’t look good do I aligned it myself and managed to be off by a 1/4". This piece required a second round of moving the material through the slot so this time I went with whatever the computer thought was right. And wouldn’t you know it - that worked great. So I took my imperfectly cut design to show the wife. We ate dinner then I went back and loaded up a second piece of plywood to try again. I didn’t close the browser or anything. Just deleted the existing design and reloaded it. Resized it to fit everything looked good. Sent the print off and it cut as expected. When finished I went through the prompts about moving my material 8 inches down. My piece has a lot of parts cut out which got caught on the crumb tray so I had to open the door, take the piece out, clean out the bits and put it back on the crumb tray and align it with the right lip. Closed the lid and then the browser said “Aligning don’t move the material or open the lid”. That’s fine. But it never got off of that. I also noticed it says Continue? and there’s a scan graphic running next to it. After awhile I clicked on the continue? but nothing happened. Suggestions?
