Where do I go to learn about setting engrave and cut preferences.

You start by working through the First Prints that Glowforge offers here:

Then, if you still have questions, there are rather a lot of training materials available at the links below:

Then if you want to get started doing your own stuff quickly, the Matrix has a lot of tutorials and video links showing the best of the tips and tricks:

For using the Glowforge:

For Using Photoshop, GIMP and Paintshop:

For using Illustrator, Inkscape, CorelDRAW and Affinity Designer:

For using Fusion 360, OnShape, Openscad, Rhino, etc.

Have fun! :grinning:


Thanks for the answer @jules, that’s right!

We have a tutorial that walks you through creating a design so you can see how to create a file with cuts and engraves in it. It includes step by step instructions and illustrations, including how to use Inkscape, a free design program.

I’m going to close this thread - if you have any other questions, go ahead and post a new topic.
