Pro not cutting square. Cut a square, and flipping it back into the cut hole, it does not fit

Is more like a parallelogram.

Is there a way to square up the glowforge?
It may have been like this from the start, I have no way of telling. Hadn’t used it in this manner since I got it, until now.

Did you already follow the instructions to square up the gantry under support/troubleshooting?

If so, you likely have a loose belt or, worst case, a failing motor.


I used a precision machine square to square my gantry and just remember if I ever move it manually to check it again afterward. Follow the instructions above and then check again. If you need to, make sure the power is off and adjust one side by hand using your square.

As @eflyguy mentioned, these steps should be the first ones to review. Let us know how it goes, and if you are still running into trouble.

Thank you :slight_smile:
