The material was non-PG 1/8" plywood, but I was using a manual copy of the PG HD Engrave settings. (Speed 300, Power 16, LPI 450) But since I was watching the head move it was clear that this issue had nothing to do with the material. The head movement was different for the garbled portion.
And have to wonder why the actual etching on the material in the photo w/ from the GFUI with the artwork is so out of focus? Did you have the material height set correctly? (Not a cause of the issue, but may be another indication of something odd going on…).
But I just ran a job like many I’ve done before, and getting material height thickness warning pop-up on my GFUI… Think there’s something a little phooey with the GFUI today.
Just off the bat I can see that the part that engraved weird is doubled up. Not that it explains why it didn’t just engrave it twice, but it is an anomaly. Still looking at it to see if anything else could explain it.
