    I’m able to print to the edge 2 with not problems.
    Every time & go to cut it on the GS 15, it cuts at a different starting point or the first few repeats cut perfectly & then starts cutting the repeats at a different point. It is not a drift, it just jumps to a different random spot.
    This can happen in the middle or start of each individual cut & it will proportionatly cut the contour wherever it wants. This is now happening to
    varied files. I did a calibration, & it print & cut fine, go figure. It’s also pretty clean & the mechanics seem to be working fine.
    This issue just started after years of usage.
    I swapped out the cable & the same problem occured. Thought it may be a
    communication issue.
    I’m really having a hard time resolving this one.
    I will truly appreciate any help.

    This happens to me occasionally.

    If it's a single panel, I delete the PRM file and repeat the print and cut.

    If it's a paneled job, I move the target from its normal center position to the lower left. That's a known bug and moving to the lower left eliminates the problem. I also never run repeats of paneled jobs.
