Total newbie here, both to Lightburn and laser engraving. I am testing my newly assembled Atomstack A5 Pro and I’m having issues with distortion in a simple text engraving. The distortion only seems to affect curves, with straight lines looking pretty crisp.
I have tried manually running one pass at a time, checking in between, and the laser follows exactly the same path each time, so the printer precision seems fine.
I have tried manually homing the laser to a different start position and the distortion pattern looks identical, so it doesn’t seem to be an issue with the running gear.
The photo shows the test engraving on a piece of plastic veneered chipboard, so flat and smooth.
