Re: Engraving multiple items on one pass with Metaza Studio

Thanks for the reply. Do you have any info regarding safe tolerances for uneven surfaces regarding the head. Even with the best jig there are going to be steps and small gaps between the jig and item.

Engraving multiple items on one pass with Metaza Studio

We have a lot of small items we would like to engrave the same image into. As it takes time loading and unloading individual items, we were wondering if there is a way to engrave multiple items in one go. I setup a design for a new material with multiple shapes for the items and went to print. The M...

Re: Not engraving parts of the image - mpx-90

This was a flat item. We solved it in the end with a new head and re-calibration. Something in the old head must have been intermittently failing.

Re: Not engraving parts of the image - mpx-90

So I managed to get it working by selecting print from the bottom. After a few prints, it is now missing the start of the image from the bottom!!

How does the software communicate with the printing. Does it use the windows print spooler?

Not engraving parts of the image - mpx-90

As you can see from the image, the engraver has started not engraving part of the image. I've tried; starting both the PC and machine. Checked all cables. Saved the image in a different format. Recalibrating the head. From testing it seems to stop engraving in the same area. So if I print something ...

Re: Replaced head - now not engraving correctly

Thanks. In the end I ran the head adjustment and set it to b8 to increase the impact. Then ran a image which engraved. Then went back and ran the head adjustment again. Seems to be working now.

Replaced head - now not engraving correctly

We had a worn head which I replaced as I always do with the head manager. Running the calibration tool resulted in the attached image. I then replaced with the old head which was working (just light engraving) and still the same problem. Tried resetting PC, machine several times. The engraver sounds...
