I am not too sure how big a problem this is and sorry for the delay,
but yesterday during my second to last job the cutter strayed off the
cutting bed on the x axis and knocked the outer chassis (I am not sure
how this is even possible). When it moved off it bumped the outer
edge a couple times and i hit the emergency stop button.
I had thought there was an artifact that was left in the job that
caused the laser to move that close to the edge, when it made the
bumping it made me jump pretty quick for the emergency stop button.
From the photo below you can see that it was even cutting as it moved
and hit the edge - so it has burned/marked the metal of the edge of
the laser cutter. I am pointing to it with the screw driver. The
damage is cosmetic but cant be rugged off.
I did a test run after the problem at it worked fine (same job but
downloaded again - there was no artifacts in job to cause laser to
stray where it had gone). But upon reflection the test was short and
did not test the maximum x and y coords.
Is this problem normal? Is it something I did (or didn't) do? Since
I was using it at the time I accept resposibility and will be willing
to help with labour and pay for the repairs if needed. Though I am
not sure how to discern or fix them - could someone with more
experience have a look please.
