The beam is split at mirror 1, 2, and at the nozzle. If I remove the tape I get wide and burnt looking cuts. I’ve ran a ramp test and set the distance from the table to the nozzle, raised air pressure on the air assist, got an in-line fan to remove the smoke, still takes 80% power to make a cut. If I don’t do that it looks like it engraves
If I align the mirrors, I can successfully put the 2 dots in the center of mirror 1, 2, and the nozzle. I even set the mirrors in the housing to make sure it’s centered out of the nozzle, then ran a ramp test to find the cleanest cut. On 35% it just burns the wood during the ramp test as opposed to cutting, so really I can’t even perform a good ramp test.
If I go to cut a project I don’t see the split beam on the wood, but it’s just a wide burn as opposed to a clean cut.
Is there a certain distance the nozzle and lens should go into the piece that holds it??
I keep thinking I have a connection issue.
I should note that the machine is running off a 75ft extension cord because I haven’t ran electricity to the out building yet.
