Troubleshooting: Engraving Shifted Relative To Cut Lines


Engravings on small pieces aren't matching up with the cut lines around them.


This can happen when a piece is cut out and falls down or shifts before the engraving step.

Preview the path to check that the laser's intended output matches what you expect to see.

Change the order of operations in the Layers window, order of Sub-layers in the Cut Settings Editor, Cut Order Priorities, or Cut Optimization Settings ensure that engravings are performed before cuts.

If the misalignment persists, check on your machine's mechanical setup. For more information, see Troubleshooting: Mechanical Issues.
