Does Auto Focus have veto power over Focus Height?
I am SOOO confused!
I can enter the thickness of my material manually, but I feel like auto focus is just going to do whatever it wants anyways.
(Auto focus is awesome and i love it, but sometimes I want to override it and cut at my own specified focus height.)
My experience is that even after entering the “known, measured height” for my material, sometimes the auto focus height kicks in, measures “whatever”, and that option (circled above) is now greyed out, and no distance is displayed.
It’s happened several times, and as I have no idea what it came up with, or where it measured, that the job may not “print” as desired. So far, I’ve been lucky.
I have an “1/8” Baltic Birch" profile i’ve saved. Are you saying that for each operation I would I need to select my saved profile, erase the focus height and then type it in again for every cut? Thanks
If we are talking about saving the focus height in saved settings, yes it can be done. I have settings saved for defocused scores at .5 inches. When I select it, that is what is in the focus height. I can override it by typing auto, and then it will use what it gets from the autofocusing.
