D1 and D1 Pro with all laser modules.
The Laser positioning light tells you the projection position of the laser beam on the material. It also helps you get a general idea of the border of your design through the framing process.
There are two types of position light, namely the red cross, and the laser spot. They are generated from different light sources (see the outlets in the below picture) and work differently.
The red cross mode is activated by default. The light gets projected from the laser outlet down to the surface. And it's in a shape of a cross, hence the name.
Note: There is a spacing between the cross and the laser beam, so the actual working area on the X-axis is slightly shortened.
The laser spot mode uses a weakened laser beam to mark the position. There is no offset between the marked spot and the actual working position. Since this is laser light, when this mode is set, it only gets triggered during the framing.
If you want to set a different positioning mode, please follow the below instructions.
