Got my day-one Pro on Wednesday, PG pack won’t be here until next week, so I’m making do with random scraps I have around. I’ve found one step in the order of ops that confuses me:
- Lay material in bed, close lid
- Manually enter measured thickness of, say, 0.2" (“This helps get the best photo of the bed” it says)
- Lay out design, set parameters (note that focus is already set to 0.2")
- Press Print
- Head moves over and fires the red parallax laser at the material
But why? I already told the software the thickness, which was auto-inserted into the focus height. So why take the time to re-measure? What’s it doing with that extra data point?
And a follow-up question: When using non-PG materials, do we want to set the laser focal point at 0.2" for this material, or to 0.1" (halfway down)?
