Thank you for such a detail reply.
Since it seems like you are very educated with the machine. What do you think could be the cause for sometimes the cut not being 100% accurate.
Let me explain. I made a coin about 1.5" (circle) and it has an outline probably about 1/8" from the edge where it will cut out the shape. Sometimes the machine is dead on and it looks beautiful, but sometimes the cut is of but like idk lets say 0.01" to the left or right side and even tho it seems like not much it makes the coin look off centered if that makes sense. I just don’t understand why it wouldn’t be 100% centered when the cut line and the design are in the same file and they are actually CENTERED ( I am a graphic designer and I’ve been using illustrator and photo shop fro over 20 years so I am sure my design is good, plus sometimes it looks perfect and sometimes it doesn’t - same artwork)
Is this something that has to do with autofocus? I am always cleaning the lenses and cleaning the machine, I am very OCD so it shouldn’t be anything related to that plus it can happen in the same job I send. Let’s say 6 coins, 4 would be PERFECT and 2 a little off centered
