Test plug for K40 Combiner Mount which allows insertion from the laser cutting bed compartment and test firing to see if the laser exit hole is aligned to the beam. I used a piece of paper over the beam exit hole, did a pencil rubbing to know the edges of the hole, then fired the laser and measured the X and Y distances from the left and bottom of the hole edge to set the beam hole position. Use Customizer to set your X and Y positions, save the STL and see if the beam hole is centered correctly. If it is, a test pulse will make it all the way to your laser head and test material with little to no smoke seen on the Test Plug. Print in PLA as ABS smoke is toxic.
