I’m just starting to use the Snapmark feature. It seems like it has good promise, but it’s been temperamental as hell for us. With the exact same jig in almost exactly the same spot, it will find the Snapmarks one time, and then can’t find them the next time.
One thing that bugs me is why they didn’t just use something like QR codes for the Snapmarks? I get that it’s cool to use the logo, but I can’t imagine from a machine-reading standpoint that it’s the easiest symbol to find. Why not something with higher contrast, redundancy, some error correction, etc? Some materials (like a softer or darker wood) don’t have amazing contrast levels. We’re spending WAY more time fussing with moving the jig around so it can find the Snapmarks, we’re about to go back to just aligning our jig with the edges of the tray like we did before.
I’ve read the info about keeping the stroke lines the same width, etc, but we just haven’t found a consistent way to get them to be recognized. Anyone else have any other suggestions?
