I am new, got the laser yesterday and have been unable to do anything yet because it simply will not burn accurately when it does burn and then the other attempts it stops mid burn.
The first thing I set out to burn and do was to calibrate my light burn camera. The image that I am to burn for this calibration has been the extent of my experience with this machine.(I’m almost ready to throw it at the wall) I have tightened and loosened the belts a few dozen times I have checked that the machine is square diagonally and to each corner all perfectly square.
Here are a couple images of my many failed attempts. The one image I ran the exact pattern in consecutive order first run it got through the burn but with inaccuracies. Second burn it stopped about 30 seconds in and third burn it stopped half way. Only thing I did between each burn was move the cardboard nothing else.
I am at a complete loss here, I bought this because of the wonderful reviews and the many users who were able to take it right out of the box assembly quickly and get to work, Unfortunately day 2 probably 6 hours tinkering and I am no closer to a useful test image than before the machine arrived.
