I just realized that the laser platform of my brand-new Artisan seems to be uneven.
For me it seems that the two “fins” at the center of the platform are slightly higher (~0.2mm) than the others (see attached picture).
So if I mount a workpiece to the platform centrally, it will always be bended slightly,
which I think has an impact to the focus point of the laser.
Has anyone the same issue? Is your laser platform perfectly even or does it look like mine?
Maybe that could be the reason why I get unpredictable results at laser cutting.
Sometimes the laser cuts through the material (4mm plywood) perfectly, but sometimes it does not cut through completely, although with same material and exactly same settings/parameters.
As I’m new to laser cutting, does anyone have some suggestions or ideas how to fix that issue?
Thanks a lot for your answers!
