Has anyone made circle acrylic coasters? what software did you use to make them to 4 inch size
I have made them. I used Illustrator to make the circles.
I used inkscape to create a circle and adjust the size on glowforge
Best thing is to learn some of the basics of a design program like inkscape which is free but like all of them has a pretty steep learning curve. When i first started i watched many youtube tutorials till i got the basics down and now it is like second nature.
I’m going to move your post to the “everything else” section as the made on a glowforge one is for showing projects you have made.
Right click and save.
That’s soooo round
Not sure if for hot or cold items, but cold items tend to sweat and can form a bond to a light coaster.
I tried using glass coasters once. That concept got tossed rather fast when the coaster was bouncing around on the floor.
I know, right?
Glowforge actual sells circles in their store so maybe taking money away from them?
I made a few and just engraved the entire surface, giving it a rough texture that resists the moisture bonding.
Hey @brianeasley92 - I’ve had a lot of success on CorelDraw for designs, but Inkscape is a free and good alternative if you aren’t going too crazy.
However, as @brokendrum mentions, it isn’t a great material if your cup/glass will be sweating. For non-sweaty drinks though, it’s great!
