I am looking to engrave the top of a wooden box. The lid of the box is .67 inches. Greater than the .5
I took the tray out, and I measured and basically created a platform from other wood, where the top of the box WOULD be .25 inches off the top of the tray if the tray were there. It is a stack of plywood.
I go in and I give the thickness of the produce at .25, I assume I am setting the focal length and such.
The issue is that the design is NO WHERE near where it is projected in the app to me. Can someone please point me to an answer, youtube, or write up to help me set this up. I ruined one box, so I am using it as test now.
Yes, I measured the tray, and stacked a much of wood in the work space, below the height of the tray… Once I added the box top it would be the height of the tray + .25. The box top is in the middle of the work space.
I did measure the side of the tray, not the middle, I can try that and see what I come up with.
We can’t know how you measured things so just as an FYI when you measure the honeycomb it has to be in place because there are divits in the floor. As stated before 1.38-1.4" is fairly standard. A very small error will introduce large placement errors.
Happy that you are OK with info or suggestions. May or may not be applicable. Have had a few folks recently get all bent out of shape if we suggest something they know is not the problem. Like we should be able to read minds.
When precision matters, I’ll use a sheet of cardboard and cut the outline of the project. Theb I’ll fit the piece into the cut-out area and trust that no matter the fish eye distortion of the camera I can be certain where the laser will hit. Harder to do when you’re building up a fake tray but maybe worth the effort!
