Height Adjustment of Laser Unit

*When cutting or engraving with FABOOL Laser Mini, there has to be a space of 3mm in between the laser unit and material you want to cut or engrave for the focus purpose. Please adjust the height appropriate for the thickness of the material.

Use the height adjustment acrylic (part ID: A-5).
*It is covered with scratch protection sheet. Please remove it when using.

How to Adjust Height

1) Put the material under the FABOOL Laser Mini and place height adjustment acrylic on the material. Then, place them under the laser unit.

Placing Protector for Base

*We recommend to use the protection cover when using FABOOL Laser Mini, but if you do not, please put a board to protect the base.
We recommend to use a steel board, stainless plate, or other inflammable materials (dark color so that the laser radiation does not reflect as much). Please make sure to use a big enough one that covers the entire area used for cutting and engraving.
