I have read a few other threads on here but haven’t been able to find one that seems to address my issue (depending upon who you ask, I have a lot of them ).
I have a .22 Cherry veneer MDF core material that I have used quite a bit successfully and have used the same settings each time to make boxes.
For some reason, my Glowforge Plus just can’t seem to muster the energy to cut through. I ran the first panel yesterday perfectly, but have tried to run the remaining panels with no success. I separated one part from the drawing (the circles in the photos) and it worked fine, went back to the drawing and no luck.
My usual settings have been 127 speed, full power. I lowered it to 117/FP and it still wouldn’t cut. Finally, I dropped it to 110/FP and got a lot of surface smoke, but only marginal perforations on the back. My GF+ is almost 6 months old and recently cleaned the lenses.
I was curious if the colder temps could affect this. 70 degrees inside venting to 32 degree exterior.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
