Text Burns with a Wave
« on: April 16, 2018, 03:03:00 PM »
Hey guys... was trying to burn some trophies and when it burnt the text, there was a slight wave in it. I created the image using Publisher and saved it as a JPEG then opened in T2.

Is the issue the file or the font?

Should I try a different file extension?

It sounds like backlash (mechanical play), a picture would confirm.

Gere is the burned image.. you can see the slight wave in the center area...

Images burn without an issue or distortion

Assuming the material is flat I would say you have a wobble in your carriage (wheels).
