Usable space seems to change. Solution?


#1

I have been having some trouble with occasionally having the usable laser area shrink on the left hand side. Sometimes it’s there sometimes it’s not. Any ideas what the solution is?


#2

The function you have selected and the speed you are asking the laser to operate will affect the usable space because the head has to decelerate. This has been covered in many, many discussions of the usable space.

Oh!! I somehow missed that. Thanks!

Specifically the engrave speed. Engrave slower and you’ll have more room. The cut boundaries are the same regardless of speed.


#5

There’s a post out there that quantified it with diagrams. Anyone got the link handy?

I’m glad you resolved it! I’m going to close this thread - if you have any other questions, go ahead and post a new topic. Thanks for letting us know about this!
