I’m pretty new, and trying to make the Halloween edge lit acrylic badges based on this design.
In this design, there are pieces to be cut from acrylic, and pieces to be cut from draft board. However, the included SVG has the cuts for both in the same color. What is the typical approach for something like this?
I think there are 3 options:
Delete the components of the design in the GFUI that are not appropriate for the current material. Deletion is needed, because the cuts are all the same color.
Change the color coding to be material specific (e.g. cuts for acrylic in red; cut for draft board in green). Use the GFUI to ignore what should not be cut or engraved.
Create separate SVGs for the different materials.
I think option 2 is the one I am leaning towards. It keeps all the design work in the GFUI, so reloading the design is not needed when material is changed, which is required for both options 1 and 3.
What is the typical approach, if there is one?
I don’t really think a “ticket” is required for this, but it is “within the manual”, so I posted it here.
