Okay, just got a laser engraver a couple of months ago, and we’ve been using lightburn for everything. It’s been working great but we’ve run into a very strange problem.
It only seems to happen when we engrave using fonts, hand drawn letters seem to work fine, but when using fonts and burning any text of significant size the letters start shifting horizontally, and the amount increases over time. Since we are usually burning the text sideways it ends up with an effect that looks like I typed something on a broken typewriter, with some letters about half space above the others. It’s as if it moves the wrong distance at some point in the burn and everything after that is off by the exact same amount.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? I’ve done google searches but I’ve come up blank.
I’ve uploaded a photo so you can see the issue more clearly.
