The following page describes how to set the page setting options to locate your design at the right location on your material.

Moving the Laser Head

  • Press <X/Y Off>
  • Press <Pointer>

You can now move the laser head by moving the carrier bar front and back, and by pulling on the carrier belt left and right. The red pointer indicates the "home" position of the laser head.


IMPORTANT NOTE

The Epilog is currently experiencing technical difficulties in positioning the laser on the material. Please refer to these instructions for now .

Positioning the Laser Head

You must locate the laser head properly to have your design "printed" at the right location on your material. Where you must locate that pointer depends on the selected printing options, and where your design is located on your canvas. Your canvas is the size of the page used when saving your design to a PDF file. It must be at least as large as the design itself, and can be a maximum of 24" wide and 12" high.

The examples in the table below show the canvas using a dashed blue line and contains a small circular design located in the lower right quadrant. The red cross shows the "home" position of the laser head before the job was physically "printed".
