It is important that you understand how to operate the machine safely, we know it's boring, and that's usually how important things are, so kindly make sure you read the"Safety Precautions" before unboxing.
Let's get started.
The following is step-by-step instructions.
1.1 Place the box on the floor and unseal the box.

💡Notice：Make sure that the machine and computer are connected to the same domain.
*Note: The clear plastic sheet over the screen panel can be removed.
Place the test wood in the machine. Rotate the focus bar (acrylic bar) downward until it is vertical. Loosen the laser head focus ring and lower the laser head until the focus bar rests on the workpiece. Tighten the laser head focus ring, and rotate the focus bar upwards until it is horizontal.
▲ Loosen the laser head focus ring
▲ The probe should precisely touches the surface of the material
Note: If the ring is fastened on too tight, consider using pliers to untwist the ring. Cover the ring with a towel to prevent the ring from being damaged or scratched.
💡If the probe is broken, you may download the dxf file here and make one by yourself. We would recommend using 3mm acrylic for cutting.
💡Note: Under circumstances without the focus probe, to make sure the object is in focus, you can use "US quarters *6" or "Euro 0.5 *5", which should be equivalent to 12mm (focus distance). Other objects close to this number is viable as well.
💡The focus must be readjusted each time the material is changed.
