Troubleshooting

– Wi-Fi has not been set

Please refer to the software manual -connection setting : 
Settings >> Machine >> Add Cubiio2 >> Enter the serial number>> Green tick: Connection is successful

-Wi-Fi has been set :

Please confirm that the Wi-Fi name and password set last time are correct.

Please confirm the connection of the machine and return to the origin.

– Without bottom cover:
 Please make sure that the hand is level (the green origin is at the center position) and seven points are detected. Please make sure that the indoor light is sufficient, but the tablet still cannot be detected.

 Bottom cover opened : 
Preview cannot be performed when the bottom cover of the test version is opened (a manual camera function will be added later).

The engraving position provided by the preview function may have an error of 1-3mm due to the angle of the hand and the device version . For precise engraving, it is recommended to use the coordinate setting function, and the camera preview is used as an auxiliary alignment.

Please confirm that the laser head has returned to the origin before engraving.

Please make sure that the focal length and parameter input are correct (refer to the software manual -parameter setting)
