This is not a problem nor do I need support on this question, but I guess it’s more “Inquiring minds want to know.”
I am making pen boxes for my handcrafted pens and am utilizing living hinges. The design is working great and I have figured out how to do the engraving first, the inside cuts next and the final outline cuts last.
The hint I read about having the engraving run horizontally helped greatly.
My question has to do with the internal cuts - the living hinges mainly, although other cuts have the same quirks.
When cutting some of the parts, and the living hinges, all of which have the same color, GF will cut part of a hinge here, then part of another hinge next and then another part of another hinge and then go back to the first hinge and so forth. On the small parts it will make a cut on a section and then go do some other cut and then come back to that part later. I have made several of these boxes and the sequence seems to be the same every time. Every thing eventually gets cut but it looks like GF is making more work for itself than necessary.
Some of these individual cuts show up in the GFUI but all of the living hinge cuts show up in one GFUI cut panel.
I’m using Inkscape and I’m wondering if it has to do with the way I laid down the original cut lines in the design. I have combined paths and grouped items such as the lines for the living hinges.
