Just finished my first two prints. Turned out great. I did the keychain ruler and the little box that glowforge provides the templates for. I used the proofgrade material provided.
My only problem was that both prints did not print as close to the edge of the proof grade material as it should have. The key chain was about 1 inch off in both the horizontal and vertical direction. The box was maybe the same or a little better in the horizontal direction, but was 2 inchs off in the vertical direction. Any thoughts?
Also, just wanting to clarify this. When I flip the Glowforge switch on the back of the glowforge to “ON”, am I allowed to open the glowforge and put stuff in it? Or can you only open it when the entire machine is off. Wanting to make sure I don’t expose myself to any hazardous lasers. So when I did the box project, I turned the entire machine off to exchange out the piece of paper for the plywood. Obviously more convenient if I don’t have to shut the machine off.
Thanks for the help
