Hello. I just received my Glowforge last night. I purchased some images to learn how to use the machine before I get into making custom designs.
I would like to engrave the item and also cut the outside. I know that by using different colors in Inkscape, you can determine which is cut and which is engrave. However, since they are odd shapes and I can’t just draw a circle or a rectangle around it, how do I cut the outside when it’s done engraving?
I searched the help topics but I couldn’t find anything regarding freeform-type shapes, just easier shapes.
I have attached a jpg of the images I received. I have also attached what it looks like in Inkscape, showing the different colors.
