3D Engraving as Proofgrade Prints get Prettier: 10/23/17 Latest Improvements


#1

Testing the Four Scoring Options
#2

Ahhh! super exciting! Lot of cool features in here!


#3

I’m really excited about this. The design team has been testing Proofgrade materials for weeks to coax more beauty and performance out of them. I think you’re really going to like this. Once you try the new settings, please share your feedback!


#4

All this is really good but have you squashed the size bug? Well I’ll know soon enough even if I don’t get an answer. I sure loved doing 8x10 portraits before the bug was introduced.


#5

WOOO!!! Very Exciting!

Although, the only downside is you posted this right after I started an hour print. :expressionless:


#6

I’m glad that the icons for light and dark standard engravings are gone and it’s just text, unless I’m missing something.

Will have to dig out a good file to test. I’ve got some Corian going right now and that would be cool to see a nice emboss for a cookie stamp.


#7

Not seeing any of the new options. No 3D Engrave… No Photo…
Still rolling out? or…?

Additional: Logged out of then into the app. Lied and said I was using Thick Draftboard.


#8

I’m not seeing the new options either. I was hoping to try it before I go to bed tonight.


#9

Can corian be engraved, say 1/8" max depth


#10

Came in to say the same thing!


#11

Is there an ETA? I’ve tried logging out and back in and new/old projects with differing materials, not seeing anything new/different yet.


#12

Draft Score — Use this option when you’re prototyping - the Draft score setting is faster, but it’s lighter in the middle and creates dark spots on corners.

This is so cool! I use light, fast scores to double-check placement (scoring the masking, not the material). Noticed the dark corners about an hour ago and wondered what was up… Not a bug, it’s a feature. :innocent:


#13

Sure, you can engrave to a pretty good depth, 1/8" and more.


#14

When they’ve rolled goings like ghost out before it took a day or two to propagate to all the people’s accounts. Not sure why that would be unless there’re individual :glowforge: settings that get altered too(or will be once they crank up individual the accuracy but they’ve got the back end already in place).


#15

All Latest Improvements announcements are scheduled to take effect within a week.


#16

Question: Will HQ Score and Draft Score replace the two current scoring options? I kind of like having two options that both look consistent and good but one being not as deep as the other. Will I be able to adjust HQ Score to different depths?


#17

Nice, I can’t wait to try them! 3D engraving :grinning: :tada:


#18

Yes, they will. That’s helpful feedback, thank you!


#19

@dan @rita in the absence of these functions in the interface, can you give us a little better idea of what “Graphic” does? does it run an HQ score around the engrave? or does it engrave in a different manner? slight defocusing maybe? or a combination of both?


#20

Can you give me some more context for this statement? I have no idea what it refers to.
