I’m just curious if anyone else is having problems cutting through Proofgrade materials. I’ve had my Glowforge for over a year now and really enjoy it, but lately, proofgrade materials have been giving me issues. My machine almost never recognizes the material when I put use it so I have to manually select it.
I did recently go through the cleaning procedures as I thought that might be issue but still no change. Not recognizing the material is annoying but minor. My main issue is that even with those settings, my machine is not consistently cutting through the materials. It was especially bad on thick walnut and thick basswood, but I experienced it with the medium walnut just last night.
None of the boards are warped so that shouldn’t be the issue. I have manually bumped the proofgrade settings as times to and that has helped but I’m curious if there’s something else I need to take a look at.
