So I’ve been doing a lot of cuts (prints?) that require accurate placement and have learned the camera is just not precise enough (even after GF fixed a problem for me). So I have gotten in the habit of drawing a rectangle around my part, the size of the piece of stock I’ll be using, and cutting that out of a piece of cardboard, in to which I then drop the stock I will subsequently cut.
To do this, I have to set the layers that contain the project itself so only the outer box is enabled, cut and remove the blank, insert the stock, and then disable the outer box and reenable the project graphics.
Pretty standard so far, right?
My laser cutter is in my basement. My CAD workstation is upstairs, in my home office. I have a small laptop in the basement that I use for stuff when I’m working on something down there. This is the computer I’ve been using to run my GF.
I learned early on that the GF app does not seem to like it if you have it open on more than one computer at the same time. So I’ve been using Remote Desktop to get to the laptop in the basement. I upload my files from there, do all the setup for the cut, and only head downstairs to do the actual button pressing.
This is where my problem occurs. I set up all the layers in my file for what I want them to do. In some cases I’m using uncertified materials and custom settings. But when I set a layer to Ignore, when I reenable it the previous custom settings are gone and the control has reset to its defaults. So I end up having to go through all my settings again, standing in front of the laptop on my workbench instead of sitting upstairs in my comfy chair.
Can GF make it so that if you set a custom layer to Ignore, the settings are retained when you subsequently reenable the layer?
