Communications error or time-out

The labtop computer has problems communicating with the laser cutter.

  • unplug the blue USB cable from the labtop and re-insert
  • try again

Soft Stop

Your print file is either positioned so that the laser head runs off the edge or it is bigger then the cutting area.

  • check size of the print job
  • re-position the head so the whole job fits on the bed
