Cut and engrave a svg

I created a SVG file where I would like to cut some parts and engrave other parts. I upload the svg and I can only cut or engrave and I cannot do both.

Fills will be engraved, strokes will be cut.

Make sure each operation’s objects are separate pieces and different colors.


Thank you, I clearly missed the actions based on color.

Color is your friend! Also, for some reason, I have always had better results with PDF files vs SVG.

If you make what you want to engrave a separate color, you may be able to use the convert to engrave option in the GFUI. If you want to control the width of the engrave you’ll have to do an Object to Path and then a Stroke to Path (Inkscape commands, other programs have similar commands/different words.) Then the GFUI will auto-detect it as an engrave.


Thanks for the answer @wbgraphic, that’s right. I’m going to close this thread - if you have another question, go ahead and post a new topic. Thanks for letting us know about this!
