You can use the cut pressure calibration function on XCS to perform the calibration.

The cut pressure base value of xTool M1 may be changed due to severe vibration and shaking during transportation, causing errors in blade cutting. To solve this problem, XCS provides the cut pressure calibration function, allowing you to perform cut pressure calibration or reset the cut pressure base value to the factory setting.

Tips: If your device cuts materials properly, you don't need to perform cut pressure calibration on it.


  • A computer with XCS installed
  • xTool M1
  • Light-grip cutting mat (blue)
  • blank A4 paper (kraft paper recommended)
