Hi. I just rejoined IG and am looking to use the laser. This is a temporary space for the manual and basic operations and trouble shooting. Once we gather some good intel on these things, perhaps the area captain can upload to wiki.
In the meantime, manual for epilog is below. The new control panel is fleshed out on page 57
ZEROING THE MACHINE
To set zero on your material, follow these steps
Unlock the gantry with the X/Y off button (show button)
Turn on the red LED indicator with the pointer button
Once the zero is where you want it to be, hit the reset button
CLEANING THE OPTIC SENSORS
I see on the wiki that it says to check with me (Xanthe) about cleaning them. That’s an old note and not accurate (If I knew how to do it years ago, I’ve since forgotten). I think Nicole has the most up to date intel there
Chris Pelletier from 3D bio was using the laser today, he is very knowledgeable about the lasers qwirks. He cleaned the senors today(not the lenses) and it was working fine. To clean the senors involves removing the side panel of the machine. I was not there to see it done. I have asked Chris to communicate directly with some words of wisdom and instructions.
