    You can try to work around this. In X4, click the text, then convert to curves. Then save the file, perhaps with a new name, and open in X6.

    That’s ribbon cable running across the x axis can also do this, try reversing it (only uses a few of the wires). If that fixes it, order a new one. You do have an encoder strip, perhaps it’s under a...

    The best configuration is fan outside the room, pulling out the fumes. Also, leave the laser closed 5-10 seconds after it finishes to allow the last of the fumes to go. Beyond that it’s hard to tell...

    I still the tubing from the pump to the laser exposed? If so, just use a “T”. They are available even with valves for fish tanks. I used one when I had an airbrush pump limited to 25 lbs. and needed...

    I have done leaf work, but mostly glass doors on law offices or lettering on sandblasted signs. You did some beautiful work, and yes, that had to take a lot of time and patience. Kudos!
