I was engraving several things this morning, but I decided to do a calibration because it started the printing too far to the right ( about 1”). I have never done a calibration before.
I don’t have a full piece of PG anything so I used Baltic birch with no tape.
After calibration I tried to engrave something I have done a million times. Strangest thing: the print started with the right group when all previous prints started at the left. But worse, there were NO MARKS on the wood. I tried it with auto focus and manual focus: same results.
I then tried a score and it came out VERY light. I upped the power and the score was a huge line like a de-focused printing. I really regret doing a calibration.
But I performed another calibration. This time to closer approximate height of the draftwood I taped both sides – bottom side 2 layers making sure everything was very smooth.
Results: No engraving whatsoever. I tried manual focus at 3 different heights and an auto focus. I’m stumped. Any suggestions from anyone?
