Icube sculpfun help

Hi everyone. I have an Icube 5w laser machine. Can you tell me how i can keep the laser central to the object i want to print on? Thanks for any replies

Framing is the tool of choice. The frame is a box that represents the maximum movement is X and Y. The actual burn area is typically smaller because Frame is not an outline.

The second is the Laser Position Tool, which looks like a teardrop with a hole in it. Click on that, then click on the center of your part. The laser will be moved to where you think the center is located.

The iCube is new, so I do not know how it indicates where the laser beam will actually strike, like with a laser pointer or visible light beam. That you will have to determine for yourself.

Thanks Mike, that makes sense now.

Thanks! Be sure to come back with those next questions.
