Engraving, size, and no artwork warning

Hey guys,

Does anyone know if the engraving area is smaller than the cutting area? The reason I ask is that when I change a text layer from cut to engrave I get a message that says “no artwork”. If I shrink the image just a tad it’s fine to print. Or I can cut the entire thing without shrinking it and it does just fine.

Confused by this,

Yes. You can see the engrave no-go areas shrink and expand as you change the speed of the engrave. With the line to line engraving, the head needs more room for deceleration so the area is a bit smaller than the cutting area.


ah…thank you.

Thanks for the answer @jbmanning5, that’s right. I’m going to close this thread - if you have any other questions, go ahead and post a new topic. Thanks for letting us know about this!
