Glowforge Alignment Issue

I’m having some trouble with my glowforge and its laser alignment. It’s slightly off, as you can see in the attached photo. I’ve tried restarting it to align it correctly. Is there a more extensive realignment process that can be done?


There is! Give this a whirl


Hi @craftysmith1218, yes you will want to run the Camera Recalibrator as @ekla suggested.

The Camera Recalibrator will only make changes if it can make your camera more accurate; otherwise, it will exit without any changes. It takes about half an hour.

You’ll need a 12” x 20” piece of Proofgrade material with no markings or stickers. The feature was designed to be used with a flat piece of medium Proofgrade Draftboard, used upside-down (with the QR code side down). It may work with other materials that are the same size and use the same print settings as well, like Proofgrade plywood.

It prints a grid of markings, takes a picture, then measures its height in multiple locations. This data is used to make your camera more accurate for future prints.

Please let us know how it goes and if you have further questions, we’re happy to help!

It’s been a little while since I’ve seen any replies on this thread so I’m going to close it. If you still need help with this please either start a new thread or email
