I’m three boards in of PG materials, haven’t changed anything, engraving is working fine, cutting is not. Any tips? I am manually setting the focus, I cleaned the camera just now but I had cleaned it 2 weeks ago with minimal use. Yes I have the issue of the PG bar codes not working or sometimes it reading the “wrong” material, but this is accurately set.
I’m getting frustrated because I am doing 100 total of these circles, and the design on the reverse is very intricate causing it to run 4m07s EACH CIRCLE. So I’m not only wasting tons time but also materials. I even changed the wood setting to be a maple hardwood (even though these are the walnut) and it behaved the same way.
I ran the same job (1 board) and a different job yesterday on the Walnut hardwood and no issues. The boards are not warped, but they may be from the same batch. I’m afraid to slow down a cut because of how long it takes already. I have done similar jobs in the past with no issues!
Can it be a bad batch of PG hardwood??
