How are you guys getting such fine cuts?


#1

I’ve tried a couple fine detailed projects, and I just am not having any luck.
Trying to make this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:662501/#files

And I get this:

As you can see, literally everything is getting vaporized. I am using the medium maple plywood proofgrade settings…but it’s just destroying these fine details.

Eek.

You might want to contact support. Almost looks like you’ve got a focusing issue.


#3

You should be cutting, not engraving. Post a screenshot of your settings. That might help us figure out what is wrong.


#4

It is a cut, no engrave. Settings are Medium Maple Plywood proofgrade settings. I let the Glowforge do its thing.


#5

Yes, a post in problems and support will bring some help.
