Shadow When Cutting?

Post by shadowfang » Fri Jan 08, 2021 5:47 pm

Hi everyone

I wonder if anyone has any ideas what is causing this shadowing. I aligned the mirrors and cleaned the lens and mirror this morning so everything there seems okay. The beam also seems to be coming out of the center of the nozzle just fine. Is there anything I am missing. It seems to be the bottom half of the laser bed which is worse, the top left and right seem okay.

Hi Matt - it does look like an alignment issue - was it ok before you re-aligned or was that why you re-aligned?

Make sure the mirror in the head is seated ok and not loose.
