Hope this has not be asked before.
Okay so after several months I finally got to set up my Emblaser 2. After spending 2 hours fitting the air assist (Slow but steady) , I Finally loaded up the firmware and re-started the machine. All Okay.
Here is where the fun began. Calibration.
I looked for the 'Included" Calibration Cards it mentions in the doco - None. Searched here - No info
I found an entry for calibration that mentions test a new calibration process. The supposedly attached files do not exist or I’m locked out.
More Seacrhing ,OKay so I now find the calibration file under getting started, but it is different from the one in he project code on the machine.
I decide to use the one on the machine as it has a newer date.
Load it up into Laser WEB.
Put some colored paper in the laser and then go to view the height settings. Hmm cant see them as it is not an option under the doc section, nor does the actual file show up in the list , just an image in in the display area. I could be a bug in laser web)
The doco does not mention if you are supposed to set the mat height i or not but follows on to talk about setting mat height inthe next section. HMM. Okay I go into machine settings and set the default height to 10mm( mat ) assuming that this is where it is set
Run the job and it works giving me an offset of + 3-4 (All 3 lines look good)
I stop here and load up a Vector image to cut. There is an option to set the height when generating the Gcode here.
Is this the height of the material only as the rest is in the Machine settings?
Does this overwrite any settings or is this material only ( makes it simple)
Was I supposed to run the calibrate with the 10mm set for the mats in the machine settings.
I assume that I did it correctly but for a noob it is very confusing given all the different files and directions)
Can someone pls clarify and if there are errors on the Web site / Doco resolve them.
