So that we can easily use “Proofgrade Settings”? THE SETTINGS DO NOT WORK! You end up wasting just as much material as if you went through testing non-proofgrade material. But you feel worse because the proofgrade is far more expensive.
I have always had consistent results using the Proofgrade settings. If you are not getting the desired results using Proofgrade material and Proofgrade settings, Glowforge will often replace the material. I suggest you supply pictures and a more thorough description of the problems you are having so that Support can weigh in.
cutting a simple rectangle and holes in proofgrade acrylic. i can post pictures, but they don’t show much. just that it didn’t cut through the material. so i ran it again, but did the cut twice and that worked.
i know it sounds whiny, i’ve never had good results cutting proofgrade with proofgrade settings. this is just the first time i’ve bothered to complain.
There was a time when proofgrade settings did not work for me so I ran tests to find out what settings did work. I do not use a lot of proofgrade anyway but I would not use a big piece of work without testing on a small piece. I just did a piece of proofgrade cherry but I don’t like the results from 220LPI so I set the Lpi to 675 and made a guess about the speed but made a small piece to determine if it was too slow as that would blow out the bottom, Once the small piece in the scrap worked I only then made the big piece.
Proofgrade comes with a guarantee. If you use the proofgrade settings and it does not cut through email glowforge and provide time you ran it and pictures and they will replace the material. They will make you print the gift of good measure on proofgrade draftboard so they can determine if there is something wrong with your machine. That’s one reason to use proofgrade.
Hi @octdesigns1023. It’s been a couple days since Jeremy’s response, and I haven’t seen any recent activity, so I’l go ahead and close this thread. Feel free to create a new thread, or email us at email@example.com, and we’ll be happy to help. Thanks.
