Glowforge Plus. Been using it in the same configuration with zero problems for months. Nothing has changed. WiFi confirmed to be good. Same type of material. Pulled power and reconnected. Restarted browser. I saw the glowforge calibrating after I pulled the power and turned it on. Ventilation is excellent; not the problem.
I’m trying to print a very simple design on medium clear acrylic. My Glowforge “app” (Chrome tab on my Mac) seems perfectly happy; no odd messages whatsoever. When I print, all is well, and when I go to the Glowforge the print button is happily flashing white. I press the button and NOTHING happens, as if I didn’t push the button.
Yes, I can feel the button press, it’s not stuck, etc. It’s just not starting the job.
Before this started to happen the same job started to print: the head moved into position, but then it stopped and would not continue. It didn’t laser at all; it just moved into place and stopped. I power cycled the glowforge and my browser tab. Now I get the behavior noted above.
Any thoughts to why it’s not proceeding to print? My design is simple, and I’m doing what I’ve been doing for months with no changes. My optics are clean as well.
