Auto FocusEasy auto focus anywhere on the machine and adjustable table to fine-tune your focus.Auto focus is either accomplished through material thickness, or it reads a red line with the camera at the lens. You cannot adjust the table to fine tune or adjust the focus point. The lens moves up and down inside the print head to focus.

Clear and reflective materials will be inaccurate with the Auto Focus.
