I’m doing an event tomorrow, so I whipped up a cute little dongle as swag. I printed one to make sure it worked (had to adjust a size) and then made a file with a bunch of them in Inkscape, using CTRL-D to duplicate and then moving the dupes into a nice nested bunch.
Tried to print it, but the engraved part just didn’t happen. On proofgrade acrylic, so I tried the different kinds of engrave, nothing. Tried a manual engrave, nothing. The engraves all show up on the thumbnail at the left of the GFUI, but not in the preview when I press print. (I should clarify: nothing shows up in the preview, but when I run the print the head moves back and forth as if it were engraving, only no zapping happens.)
I made copies of the original dongle (that printed properly) in the GFUI and moved them into a nice nested bunch, and now that’s printing properly.
Is it something with using the “duplicate” command in Inkscape? But then it seems odd that I can still see the thumbnails and select engraving options as if something were there. Anyway, for Support, this should be in the logs in the hour or so before this post, with lots of cancellations. And here’s a zip of the file:

I hope this is just a simple mistake…
