Hello Glowforge… So far, so good… Loving it. But I have some questions that I just can’t find an answer to…
How do I change the depth of an engrave using Proofgrade material? In other words, which setting creates the deepest and the lightest depth? SD Graphic? HD Graphic? 3D Graphic… etc. Just looking for literature on what the different settings are and how I can take advantage of them.
What DPI of a bitmap graphic should be used to ensure a 1:1 cut?
Can I turn off the computer or otherwise close the browser window after the job has been sent to the GF? In other words, does the entire job spool internally to the GF or is it being fed as it goes?
Why won’t it let me place artwork up to the edge, or right next to it. It seems to want to cut off about an inch all the way around, effectively reducing the total bed size?
Is there going to be future support for different file types, such as .dwg? .ai ?
Is there going to be some more error handling if the file isn’t right? So, I get a more detailed message rather than “it didn’t work.” ?
For the Basic Glowforge, why can’t I just cut out the front part so I can have an oversize piece come out the front? And have the bottom be completely removable so I can just set the GF on something and laser away?
I have about a million more questions, but I’ll save those for a later date.
