Okay… so, I’ve had the glowforge for a few months now, and have used it a few times (not the best artist) and I don’t remember how it started the first time it was used, but now I am concerned.
When I turn on the glowforge and it begins calibrating, It makes a very loud clicking sound, then the laser arm thing moves moves back, and then it clicks a bit more, and then it finishes calibrating as normal. I was worried it was going to break but it stopped, and said ready to print, So… I did. and it printed just fine. everything I printed that day printed perfectly.
Then the next time I turned it on, it did it all over again. loud, mechanical clicking, like a gear is trying to turn and can’t. and again, it printed fine.
Should I manually put the print-head/laser arm thing in the middle prior to turning it on? Have I been turning it off wrong? (just flipping the power switch after everything is done and it’s showing ‘ready’)
I really don’t want to screw this up, and I hope it’s not.
