Hello. I have had my glowforge for several months now. I have been sticking to the basics of learning Inkscape and making simple engravings and cut outs on glowforge.
I decided it’s time to start making actual FUN projects instead of just engraving things. I purchased a file from etsy for a simple recipe box. I successfully downloaded it .
Now my question is…what do I do with it?? I have watched a bunch of tutorials and I’m still totally clueless. I have saved a copy of the download and opened it in Inkscape. I cannot get the trace bitmap to work however, because the lines come out so faint that nothing is solid.
The reviews on this product rave about how easy it is to use, and how people have made it successfully on their second day of glowforge ownership. What am I missing? How do I take a downloaded file and use it?
Any help would be appreciated because at this point I am seriously regretting my venture into the glowforge ownership.
Thanks in advance!
