Trying out the free catan board. (last night, started about 630p CST) Unmodified PDF loaded into app. started print but I had set the outline layer to Score instead of the default engrave. let it print for a while and cancelled it as I suspected I shouldn’t have used score. Shifted the parts over by the width of one catan tile and changed the layer back to engrave. hit print. I left my basement as it looked like it started well. I return 7 min before end and I see that the outline layer was somewhat ‘smeared’ digitally across the bottom inch of the tiles (rending the whole thing a waste).
This kind of thing has happened to me before, in smaller projects, a while ago, and I haven’t posted.
How can I prevent this from happening? Because other layers are spot on, and even the outline layer seems to have corrected itself in progress, I don’t think it is a hardware or alignment problem. I suspect something between the app and the printer is getting corrupted.
Image below shows the bottom 1/3 of tile with engraved line shifted and scaled to right and it somewhat corrects as the print progressed upward
