Having a very strange issue while testing an engrave on a clear glass plate… only part of the image is engraving. The laser head is moving as if it were firing the laser, but it isn’t cutting any material away.
Experienced this for the first time last night (tried twice) and decided it was because I wasn’t thinking and imported my png image into Inkscape to flip horizontally and saved as an SVG… figured something got corrupted.
So tonight I redid the image as a PNG, imported that and test engraved on a piece of wood… worked as expected. Out came the crumb tray, in went the 1" high plate sitting so it could be engraved from the bottom. Redid my settings to 400/100/225/3 and fired up the print. Started fine but then about 1/2" into the engrave it suddenly stopped cutting while going through all the motions. Any thoughts on what’s going on?
