My GF Pro was cutting through my 1/8" acrylic with ease using the cut settings of 160 and full power.
I had a small fire occur during an acrylic cut last week, which resulted in me needing to replace the carriage plate. I am using a borrowed carriage plate at the moment while I wait for mine to come.
Upon installing this replacement, the first cut was like butter on 1/8" baltic birch plywood… but as I tried to do more cuts, I have notice my acrylic cuts no longer cut through and my 1/4" baltic birch cuts aren’t as smooth and clean as they were prior. I have been trying different settings, lately full power, speed 170, with 2 passes for the 1/8 acrylic and now when cutting 1/4" baltic birch I am using cut speed of 130, full power.
Would swapping the carriage plate cause this issue? This is the only new part on the machine.
I am trying to work around it as I need to make things that are being ordered, but it’s really inconvenient and frustrating and definitely a waste of my materials in some situations.
I have cleaned all fans, lenses, etc.
One thing that I have noticed is when I try to use the “Set Focus” option I am getting the error message that I cannot set the focus. But then 2 times out of 8 it would set the focus just fine.
