Re: 3020 Intermittent cutting

Check the connections to the tube to make sure there is no arching.

Depending on how the tube has been used and looked after it may only last a short time if you are unlucky.

Re: 3020 Intermittent cutting

Re: problems with cutting, parts cutting wrong sizes

So array is this option Screenshot 2023-06-06 161350.png so cuts the same part x number of times. This would exclude any anomalies in the file and if all parts cut the same then it is more chance to be a setting issue. If all parts are different it could be mechanical. May be worth exporting the CFG...

Re: problems with cutting, parts cutting wrong sizes

So is it the same part set up as an array? If you create a simple box and cut that in an array does it do the same?

Re: problems with cutting, parts cutting wrong sizes

Check on the control pad on the machine that the setting are set correct. Most options should be 100% as the software overrides - and strange numbers in the CP can make it do strange things.

Re: Diameter of laser?

Not that I know of without using different lens or beam expander but I am not sure that is possible on the smaller machines. How large is it? You can try doing a ramp test to perfect the focus on the machine which may help. Also make sure the lens is right way up for the focus tool (cupped surface u...

Re: LaserCut 5.3

Hi - yes it should be part of the install disk - have you got it to transfer to the machine (if successful the machine will beep).

It may be worth calling HPC and getting the correct version for the card you have as well in case it is not the original disk.
