Luigi powered up okay. No defects noted when setting the Origin or when using the autofocus.
So all the setup went without a problem.
Then I hit the start button. Heard a sound from the left side of the machine, sounded like a belt slipping maybe? And the resulting burn was way off - in the photo I’m uploading, the 8 squiggles around the edges of the piece are supposed to be perfect squares. The whole figure is off, but I don’t know if it’s the x or y axis (could be both I suppose).
Also the scorching looks like what you get when it’s out of focus but I think the scorching might just be because one of the axes aren’t working at the proper speed.
This was the pic I meant to upload. The red circled cuts are supposed to be perfect 3.05mm squares. So something is definitely off.
Just a heads-up for @ssaner and @Christian
I should be able to come by sometime tomorrow (Sun).
I took a look at Luigi this afternoon. I was unable to duplicate this behavior. If you have further troubles with this, we may need to get a copy of your file to test with.
Thanks. I’ll try again.
One thing I didn’t do at the time was “turn it off and turn it back on again” which is like Troubleshooting 101.
With issues like this the following info would be very helpful:
- Software used:
- Relevant settings:
- Speed, Power, etc.
- Or a copy of the project file with all the settings saved
- Method of running the file:
- Did you use the start button in the software, or did you upload it and run it from the control panel?
Right on. Next time I have a glitch I’ll collect all that info.
Next time I use Luigi I’m going to take your advice about running the burn from Luigi’s control panel rather than going over the USB cable. Thanks Christian!
