Looking for some help from the Corel Draw group.

I have been exporting svg’s and cutting and engraving no probs. That is until I tried to do a cut out.

I have a circle, and need to engrave just the outer bit. The circle is 7mm and I want to engrave the outer 1.5mm then cut a circle that is 4.5mm out of the middle. The gap between the two should not be engraved.

Here is what I did.

Made a circle, (for ease of mesuring in corel I did it 70mm). No outline, file is pink.

Made a circle, 55mm. No outline, no fill.

Select them both then use the “back minus front”. This gives me a pink loop.

Made a third circle 45mm. hairline outline no fill.

Upload to GF.

What I get is a full circle that wants to engrave and a circle to cut.

For the time being my work arounds have been to pull it into corel paint and take out the center to make a loop, or to use it as a .jpg in the svg file.

Attached are the corel file, the svg file and two captures showing what I get in the GF screen.
