Q: My machine scratches the surface during the engraving. How do I stop this?

When moving to another engraving location, it is necessary to lift Z axis to prevent the tool from contacting with the material surface before moving. When 'Z Clearance' is not set properly it causes the tool to scratch the material in unwanted places. To eliminate this simply increase the lift distance in 'Z Clearance' setting it to 1mm and higher.
