I went to use the laser today at around 7pm and noticed some strange behavior that I’m assuming is due to alignment issues.
It seems to be the out of focus in the middle of the bed in the X axis (ie. making wide/double lines), but in focus at x=0, and x=max
left side cut:
It also appears to dramatically lose power as it moves toward the right side of the bed (i.e. toward x = 0)
left side engrave:
right side engrave (same settings):
Things I checked:
My material was clamped down and flat
Laser head was properly focused for correct material thickness
Laser head appears not to be bent or broken
I assume this is an out of order type thing, so I put an out of order sign on it.
