Not sure how many are affected by the centering/scanning issue right now or will be in the future, but as some of you know, the fix is getting a new black ribbon cable that is attached to the lid. I’m currently waiting for a new cable for my own, but I’ve found a workaround in the meantime. I can get my machine to do it’s regular setup as long as I’m not signed in to the app.glowforge site when I turn the machine on.
After it finishes the startup process, I sign back in, upload my design, and can do that single job. Then I have to sign out of the website, turn the machine off, then back on, and it will go through the startup process like normal. Most importantly, I am not signed in until the machine has finished it’s startup. Rinse and repeat.
Not sure if this will help anyone else, but I’ve successfully done at least 5 or 6 prints with this method and it’s worked every time since following these steps. I’ve uploaded these pics to show the time stamp difference. The first one was stuck scanning for a little bit, did the above steps and was back in business with the second pic.
