Recently my Glowforge Pro has been having a couple of issues. First, the cuts are misaligned from the image in the interface. Sometimes it is misaligned to the left, other times to the right, sometimes on both the x and y axis. Not a ton, maybe half an inch. I ran the camera calibration and it did that successfully. It printed accurately for two or three prints, and then it is back to being misaligned. I also have tried to set the focal height to see if that would resolve the problem, but it did nothing.
The second issue, which I am sure is tied to the first, is that now it sometimes drifts during the middle of the print. So half of the print ends up being 1/16 of an inch off.
This is what I have done so far to trouble shoot it:
- Recalibrated the camera. Worked for a couple of prints, but the images is now misaligned again.
- Set material height to see if that would change anything. No difference.
- Checked the belts for debris and generally cleaned all the mechanics. Didn’t find anything. Still no difference.
I really need to get this figured out as I am approaching the Christmas rush and I can’t have this machine be down. Any suggestions beyond what I have already tried would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
