@coalakida: I should also point out that the point where the Glowforge does its focus is not where the laser cuts. It is slightly to one side. When the focus operation happens you can see a red dot flash on your material. If you are going to use auto focus, ensure that the red focus dot is falling on a place where there is material and not, for example, in a “hole” from a previous cut.
The Problem was the Auto Focus and the Browser sometimes getting really confused. I now know what to look for before I push the button , At this point I just have to close out of the Browser and start again, I also do a practice circle to make sure its on point…
You’ll want the values to be different. You want material thickness set to the actual (this is so the camera view is the most accurate), and then you’ll want the manual focus value to be slightly different - so .500 thickness and .499 focus.
