Moving The Laser Head

Hello all! I just received my E2! I have unboxed it and started to do the setup procedures, but I want to install the air assist before I move it to it’s permanent resting place and connect it to the computer. I need to move the laser head out of the way so I can remove the motor stabilizing packing and to install the air assist. Can I move the laser head manually with my hands, or should I only move the laser using the Laserweb software? I don’t want to damage my machine right out of the box, so I figured I would ask before doing anything.

Hi David,  Yep you can manually move the head. You will feel some resistance of the stepper motors so nice and steady and all will be good.

 

Oh…with the machine powered OFF.
