We have developed a new process to calibrate the Emblaser 2 laser height for best focus. The new method makes it a lot easier to determine the most appropriate calibration value.
Before we officially release it and update our user manual, we would like our current customers to test the process and give us feedback.
The Overall Process:
The gcode calibration file will engrave a line from left to right. This line will be thick at the ends and become thinner towards the middle.
There will then be a series of vertical lines and numbers engraved.
Choose the value that corresponds with where the horizontal line is the thinnest.
This is then entered into Laserweb/Machine/Tool-Offset field.
How to test:
1: Place a sheet of white copy paper OR non-white paper in the centre of the workspace on top of the cutting mats.
(Please note that this process works better with non-white paper)
2: Download the gcode file that matches the color of paper you are testing with:
3: Examine the result and enter the appropriate value into Laserweb.
Please let us know how the process works.
