I’ve been having this problem for a while, but have finally given up trying to work around it. Can anyone tell me if they’ve had a similar problem, and how they fixed it?
I want to do engraves, that are outlined either by score lines or cut lines. When I upload my .svg file, both cut and score lines look correct but the raster image is shifted/oddly compressed. Which can lead to some really annoying hairline-thin ridges on the outside edges of my pieces.
Screenshot of what I see in Illustrator:
The filled gray areas are copies of the red score lines, inverted to have a fill, and then rasterized. So they should be exactly aligned.
This is what I see in the print preview in the GF app:
See how the engraving is shifted? When I proceed with the print anyway, I get what is in the preview, not what the file originally had. Which makes me think that it’s a software and not a hardware problem.
Is Illustrator (v 22.1, CC2018) doing something weird to the image when it rasterizes the gray areas? I am using the default settings for rasterize, CMYK, high res, transparent background, no special options. Or is something happening in the GFUI when it renders the design for printing?
Here is my file test:
