This machine is so frustrating!!!
I put artwork in the glowforge to trace and it says no artwork!!
Also, I have been uploading svg’s and it still won’t see that I have artwork!
Is there something I’m doing wrong?
I see the images, but it won’t recognize it.
They need to fit within the bed. And then you need to assign settings to the job. If it’s Proofgrade, it will select cut/engrave automatically. If it isn’t Proofgrade, or it’s not reading the QR code, you’ll need to define a material height and then assign settings to the operation.
It will say no artwork if the artwork is out of bounds, or it has no settings applied.
I have seen a weird bug now and again, where an action has to be set or the thickness verified before things are seen, but it could also be an overall location issue.
To be sure of location, setup a 12x20 work sheet in your design program and stay away from the fringes.
I tend to put things at the 6x10 center myself. Advantage there is if loading another design on top of one just burned, it will be where it belongs (still at 6x10 location) as long as nothing was moved in the machine.
Actually, you helped me both ways. I didn’t know you could drag and drop an svg?? Good to know.
My problem was with the svg it was too big. So, it did work after I made it smaller. Still would love to know how to use the pass thru. I will figure it out though.
