So I’ve only tried this once and plan on trying again tonight. Here’s my process and what happened:
I wanted to etch some lovely 4.25" white tile. I don’t have snapmarks on my app.
I created artwork as well as a 4.28" cut box around my art in illustrator (I use this daily for work) and saved as SVG.
I placed and taped down some large flat new cardboard onto the tray, set the cut line to cut and the art to ignore and cut the squares out.
I extremely carefully removed the cutouts with a weeding hook into the middle and lifted straight out. No movement and plenty of tape on all corners holding.
I carefully switched cut to ignore and set my artwork to etch with appropriate settings. After about twenty five minutes, it was ready to print. I hit the button and I noticed the dots beginning to form about 1/4" below the cutout of the cardboard. This was about 1/2" from where the artwork should be.
I’m positive I moved nothing in the window.
Are there any known bugs or weird behavior like this? The only thing I can think of is that my art was rather complicated. In fact when I attempted to retry by just manually lining up, the interface was processing was about 35 minutes before I gave up and canceled.
Again, I will try tonight with a fresh piece of cardboard but wanted to ask.
