I made a fixture on the medium draftboard (.125 thick) that has 3"x.3" longitudinal slots spaced .5" apart, in a single column, 18 tall, to hold some small round parts I want to engrave. I set the parts up, started the job, and went to check on it after a couple minutes. It seems that the laser somehow pushed some of the parts out of the fixture.
The parts extend .455 over the height of the draftboard.
I want to know how to find out what’s happening. Is there a “dry run” setting I can use to pretend run the job to see what’s going on?
Do I need to make a new fixture? The parts are .490 in diameter.
