Side Belt Tension

My prints are a little off and my side belt tension on the left is not as tight as the one in this video.

Should I tighten my belt?



I little off like wobbly or a little off like not printing where expected? Either way, it can’t hurt to keep the belt tension equal.

Every single time I have to do something inside the Glowforge I feel like a surgeon who failed out of medical school.

I am so nervous about any type of tinkering when it comes to the GF.

Going into surgery in about 30 minutes.


Hey there @JimmyWayneWestie! Hey

Thanks for reaching out to us. I’m sorry to hear your prints aren’t turning out as expected.

You can follow this link for instructions on how to adjust the tension of the side belt.

If your prints still aren’t turning out the way you want after tightening the belt please post a photo of the bad print along with the date and time it was run and we’ll get to work troubleshooting the issue for you.

Let me know how it goes.
