Two Questions similar topic. I use a lot of my own material which varies from .25" to 1 inches. I discovered that anything below .5 inches I can leave the bed in and when using over .5 inches I must remove the bed. However according to the laser warnings the material must be positioned I so as the top of the material falls in between the magic .5 and under or 1.5 to 2? what about material that falls in between these. Not only do I get the above warning but I discovered if the materiel is to tall it will hit the guard under and to the back of the laser head. So what I have be doing is anything under .5 business as usual. But my material over .5 such as a oak board .85 inches thick I have to remove the crumb tray place something underneath it to raise it over .5, measure with calipers and enter that number into the material thickness…Am I blatenly missing something here or is the only way to engrave items thicker than .5 is to get its overall height when sitting in the machine with no bed to over .5. That means I will constantly have to have multiple riser board with various thickness’s on hand to get my varying material to sit above 1.5 inches?
Second the quality and alignment seems great on my own material, but when I enter the material and focus height say for example 1.62" and hit apply it always changes it back to .5 in the box. It will never keep what I put in. Again probably something very simple but what and I missing here?
