I’ve discovered that the engrave function of my GF pro isn’t quite calibrated, and I’m not sure if there’s a way to address this.
It seems as though the X/Y plane isn’t totally accurate, and I imagine this is because of the difference in the motors. When I engrave something horizontally, it ends up being about 3mm shorter than if I did it vertically. I’ve not actually tested this, but here’s a file that would illustrate what I’m talking about: engrave-test.zip (627 Bytes)
Although each rectangle is 10" long, I would expect the vertical one to be longer when it’s actually engraved. (Or the horizontal one is shorter… I can’t tell which it is, but one of them is off.)
Is there any way to correct this?
