Issue Description

If you use the rotary attachment, and the engraved image looks cut or shifted, please refer to this article for troubleshooting.

#1 Check the Image Format

Processing vector images may involve many back-and-forth cylindrical movements, causing the object to slide if the friction is not strong enough.
Here are some ways to make the processing more stable.
  1. Put rubber bands on both ends of the material.
  2. Transfer the vector image into a bitmap image.
  3. Try with a chuck instead of the roller.

#2 Check the Roller Set Screw

Check if the set screw of the roller is not tightened enough.

#3 Check the Jaw Chuck

Check if all the screws on the chuck are fastened properly. Check if the drive belt is loose.
