I’ve seen this question come up a few times recently and wanted folks to get the newest info. The new “set focus” feature has really changed things for working with thick material!
If you have something over .5" to put in your GF there’s no longer a need for complicated math or tray calculations. All you HAVE to do is make sure your materiel reaches above the height of the tray and is the cutting range and the GF will do the rest.
Here’s what to do…
- Remove the tray
- For material taller than 1.4", place it on the floor of the GF
- For material less than 1.4", place it on something that raises it above 1.4", but is still under 2". (See the handy tool file below to make this fool proof.)
- Push the “set focus” button in the GUI and the GF will set the correct height.
- That’s it! Now you can push the magic blue button.
