Hi! I am relatively new to the community as I just recently purchased my Glowforge Pro so I would really appreciate any help and suggestions you have.
I’ve been having the problem of not getting a clean cut-through when trying to cut 1/4" Birch Plywood. I am currently trying to cut at Full Power and down to 110 Speed (with masking on both sides of the wood) but oftentimes, the wood doesn’t cut through and I have to manually try to break the letters out of the wood which sometimes ruins my project. Not to mention that the charring is a lot at this speed for full power. I may be wrong but it seems like most of the settings other people have posted on this forum have the speed higher than 110 at full power and they’re getting good cuts. I have followed many of the troubleshooting tips I found like cleaning my Glowforge lenses but still, the problem remains.
Am I missing something or does my Glowforge have a possible issue?
