Unlock gantry?

Is there a way to manually position the glowforge when turned on? in order to measure materials?

That’s what the Set Focus tool is for. It won’t tell YOU the measurement, though, if that’s what you’re looking for. You’ll have to just use calipers for that.

Thank you. Was just wondering if there is away to unlock and lock the gantry?

Just by turning the machine off.

and just to be sure - you should never move the gantry manually when the machine is on - it’ll lose its place and end up banging into something because it’s lost.


Thanks for the answer @geek2nurse, that’s right. If you haven’t already, check out our article on Alignment to learn more about Set Focus.
