Common Questions for Everyday Users

 

By The Numbers

Carey Solomon, Xenetech Development and SupportIn the XGW F7 Workspace Management dialog you can enter more than decimal numbers for working with plate parameters. You can enter fractions, such as 6 1/2 to set plate sizes to non-whole numbers. You can also use mathematical operators, such as * / + or -. So, if we want a plate dimension to be half of 1/8 inch, I could enter .125/2. - Carey Solomon, Development and Support

 

Square and By The Letter

Gary McNatt, Xenetech Technical Support RepresentativeHow do I check my laser bridge to see if it’s square?


First use the touch pad to position the red dot that’s on the table to the bottom edge of the horizontal ruler on the left side of the table. Then run the carriage almost to the end of the ruler to the right. See if it is either lower, meaning the red dot is now on the table in the engraving area, or higher up on the ruler. If either condition exists your laserbridge is out of square.
Here is an article from our online Knowledgebase which provides more information. - Gary McNatt, Technical Support

 

Engraving Order from CorelDRAWBen Rosenstein, Xenetech Technical Service Representative
I want to optimize my engraving time as much as I can because time is money. If you are running your laser engraver out of CorelDraw it is important to know the engraving order of your drawing so that your engraving is optimized. Also you may want certain items to engrave first and others to engraver later.

Here is an article from our online Knowledgebase which shows exactly how to do this.
