The first mirror the beam hit seems nice and clean but I think you are referring to something inside the tube near the end? There...

Re: LASER ALIGNMENT

I have been having further issues cutting 3mm ply with my LS3020 which I had down to variances in the quality of the wood, but I am beginning to wonder if other factors are at play. Out of exasperation I upped the power to 80/80% and increased the speed to 30% (For two years I had cut at 22% speed a...

Re: LASER ALIGNMENT

Is there anyone else having persistent trouble cutting 3mm birch ply? For quite a while now I have had to change my settings virtually every sheet. Not only that I can have several similar cuts side by side and some cut through and some don't. For a couple of years I had the same settings day in day...

The first issue was Lasercut 5.3 wouldn't open but Chris from HPC solved that by advising I now need to si...

Re: LASER ALIGNMENT

Good thought. Just to clarify, if I am cutting 3mm Perspex and my focal distance is normally 73mm I should increase this to 74.5mm?

Re: LASER ALIGNMENT

I am now experiencing an issue that is really only apparent when cutting Perspex in that the cut is slightly bevelled - only a small amount, but when it comes to glue-welding pieces together there is only marginal contact. It would seem obvious that the laser is not exactly square with the table, bu...
