Just cut this file out! Quick question, for the fifth elephant, the half moon cutout, are you just painting that a different color and putting it back in? Also if this is the case and I wanted to do that piece out of acrylic, would I need to trace the half moon, turn it into a svg and upload to glowforge? If so, how do I guarantee the size stays accurate? Thanks! Loved this file , plan on buying a few more
The half moon on the 5th layer is set to engrave while the rest of the elephant is set to cut. I did a little screen capture to show you what I mean.
I’m not sure how you would do that out of acrylic. I guess if you set the half moon to “cut” when cutting the elephant outline…then insert the acrylic into the machine and set the elephant to ignore and the half moon to cut. That would ideally get you the shape of the half moon on the acrylic, but not necessary the exact size. The laser cut would not but exactly 100%, and the acrylic would be a little sloppy in the fit.
Although in retrospect it was probably my error. I was working fast and there probably were different colors, but I didn’t notice because when I grouped to move them they were all the same color (slapping forehead). Was wondering why the jeep driver was cut out, when he was probably just supposed to have a score line, lol. No worries and sorry. But now that the back half moon is cut out, I might try painting it to look like an african sunset or sunrise. Your files are great!
Sorry and no worries, going forward with your files, I will definitely make sure to look for the different colors and note what to do. As a designer it would be super helpful if you included in your file what color does what and what to watch for. Also I didn’t understand your file when first downloaded and had to go back to your etsy page to see that you were offering 1/8 and 1/4 because at first I didn’t understand what the files meant. This is not meant to criticize , but maybe would be helpful for others if you included a blurb with your files about colors and sizes, as sometimes we buy files then don’t go and cut them for weeks or even months later and have no idea what is happening in or with the file. Just a helpful hint. Thanks so much.
