I received my E2 just before Christmas, and I’m currently testing it. Today, I intended to simply cut a pattern out of white paper, using the default settings for 80g paper in LaserWeb, with the laser at 100% and a 1500 mm/min cut rate.
The laser was calibrated correctly, and I also accounted for the silicone mat height.
However, things aren’t working as expected: whenever the head moves with the laser turned off, after reaching the location where it again turns on, there seems to be a short delay before the laser beam either turns on or reaches adequate power. The result is that the initial part of the tool path isn’t cut, as shown on the image below, where all triangles are supposed to be fully cut out.
I also tried to lower the speed to 1000 mm/min, but this only shortens the missing segments, without solving the actual problem.
The same settings where working yesterday, so I don’t understand why suddenly the beam lags when being turned on. Of course, I restarted the E2, but the problem persists.
Is my laser already failing?
