Laser Cutting Madness

We’ve been troubleshooting with the laser cutter and working with Illustrator in Windows, instead of sending our files through CAD in ubuntu.

Our first problem was working with a file that was exactly the size of the laser cutter bed. The laser was set to auto focus, and while attempting to focus, it would start cutting (We even focused it ourselves, and that didn’t work). So we scaled the file’s dimensions down just a bit, and that was solved.
