All of the machines are calibrated at our facility during the QC process and do not need to be calibrated after that, unless directed by support, the only exception to this is the Muse Galvo 3D and Muse Pandora.
Calibration steps listed below.
The only calibration we have to do for the Muse Galvo is the focus test, lens calibration, and height offset calibration they are detailed below for you. For this we will access a slightly different page of the software.
Type the address you would normally use to access the software but change
http://[IPAddress]/designer to http://[IPAddress]/Setup
In the setup page go to Laser Tools and scroll to Laser Focus and Lens Calibration. Select the lens size currently installed on your machine. Jog the laser head until it is in approximate focus to your material. Measurements listed below.
163mm Lens ~ 7.75 in or 196.9 mm
254mm Lens ~ 11.5 in or 292.1 mm
330mm Lens ~ 14.5 in or 368.3 mm
420mm Lens ~ 18 in or 457.2 mm
Leave the other settings and the Focus Job. The machine will begin running a short job that is a grid pattern. Once this job finishes a grid will appear in the software. Select the grid option that looks the clearest from the output on your material.
If almost no marks were made or you were unable to discern what grid square is the best change the Increment to 2 mm and run the test again. After this run the below Lens Calibration, then repeat this step at a 1mm increment to fine tune the focus.
Once the focus test is complete take a piece of blank white printer paper and place it flat over your material. Then run the lens calibration. The red dot will move around the workspace for a few minutes. The system will then say the calibration was successful. If it says failure, attempt the calibration again.
Tag Focus Autofocus Calibration
Once the laser is in focus and the lens calibration has been completed, place the Autofocus Tag under the camera itself. It should appear center in the camera feed. The focus tag orientation does not matter.
Once the tag is in place go back to the setup page of the software and press the Take Snapshot button. Once the image is taken press the Save Focus Button as we have previously done the focus test and lens calibration.
Write down, or make other note, of the height your scan head is currently at. Then jog the laser head down out of focus to about 5mm. Use a ruler and measure the distance from the workspace to the camera itself. Add 10mm to this measurement and input it into Save Lower Offset in mm. Then press Save Lower Offset.
Your calibration for the Autofocus tag is complete. Press Test Autofocus and make sure the scan head moves back to the same height you previously recorded. If it does not return to the correct height, repeat this calibration.
