I had hoped that maybe there was something I was doing wrong, but now that it has happened for a third time, I’m beginning to suspect that it’s on the glowforge side. I’m referring to me placing my design into the UI and seeing where it should cut on the proofgrade, but when I hit print, it has started to engrave about an eighth to a quarter of an inch to the right of my “placement”. I’d prefer to not have to restart Harrison every time this happens, and am hoping for a cure. I tried searching to see if this was a common problem, but no luck.
Hopefully a forum member has some answers, but I would gladly take advice straight from the wonderful staff.
I’ll start with what I have done, so we can narrow it down a little.
Every other time I turn the machine on, I have had errors where it states that it needs to cool down, and I’ve not done any printing all day. I’ll turn it off, unplug, and wait, and resituate the head to under the camera. This seems to fix the cooling prompt, but it has taken a couple of tries and hasn’t worked on the initial restart.
I’ll let it do its calibrations, and not print anything for around 10 minutes until I’m sure I like the way my design is going to be done. This includes leaving the UI to update my design.
It seems as though it has happened after leaving the UI. I try to rescan the bed as often as I remember, but it’s not as though I move anything within the bed itself or any physical items.
I’m just looking for any help I can get, but am hopeful that we can figure this out!
