There is a slide out warning box in the UI after pressing Print, but before the glow-winky-dial lights up on the GF, that has a material height warning. Last night I was trying to engrave a rubber phone case. The case was 0.6" high, so I had to take out the crumb tray and use other things (I know there are risers to make, I’m just not that organized yet) that were lower overall to hold it up. In the past, I thought I was able to “X” out of the warning and continue doing my thing.
The warning says, (and don’t quote me) Material thickness must be less than 0.5" with the crumb tray, and between 1.5" and 2" without the crumb tray. (this is wrong by the way, because 0.5" plus the crumb tray thickness is more like 1.88", but I digress)
I know this, and that is why I took the crumb tray out and put layers of other stuff in there. I need to be able to run score guides on paper at any height I want, to allow the top of the object to be below 1.88". Most times this puts the engrave point below the focus range, but this is okay because the score guides can be wide, (AND I’ve done this before without issue.) I’m fine with the reminder, but It would be GREAT to be able to “X” out of it and go on with the job. I needed the guide sheet to be at a level of 1.2" or so because I needed to leave it in there and put the phone case on top without removing the guide.
Especially with engraving non-proof grade items, there needs to be the ability to put in a guide sheet, and score the outline so that I know where to put the object for the real engrave. My work around was successful, but way harder. I used a piece of paper as always, but taped it to a full piece of PG, then scored the paper at 10 power. This was on top of about 6 pieces of proof grade. I pushed the top layer with the guide paper on it tight up against the right side of the front door. Then I scored, removed a few layers and recalculated the height and put the top layer back in, ignored the score and pressed GO. Ugh! It would have been MUCH easier to leave the guide in there and just put the object on top - as I’m really sure I’ve done in the past.
Please allow the warning to be able to be closed without affecting the glowy button.
