Are there any plans to improve the camera view of the cutting bed in the future to provide us with an accurate representation of what’s on there by correcting for the warping that occurs of the image from the curved lens on the camera?
Many photography apps have preset tools to correct for curvature of images from particular lenses. One would think that if the GF camera centres itself on the cutting bed, takes its picture, then the image could be deformed using registration marks or points inside the machine to bring it back into proper flat perspective including a relatively accurate preview of cut/engrave locations.
Attached is a sample of the distortion: I created a 1" square grid measuring 16" x 8" and added 1/2" circles at the corners and the centre point of the grid. I lightly engraved that onto a sheet of cardboard. Then, I took this screenshot showing the engraved marks below the design in the GF app to easily see and measure the distortion occurring. By applying some perspective warp/skew it should be pretty straight forward to get closer than it is right now. (Easy for me to say right!!!) I’ve done this type of image correction using the utility imagemagick in web application lots of times over the years, albeit that was over 10 years ago the last time I was doing this sort of thing.
Anyhow, I hope this can be considered for future updates, I believe this would be a feature EVERY user would appreciate.
