So I am making sets of coasters. I made my round cut template but when it shows in the left que, it only allows me to engrave or ignore. I want that to cut after the first que engraves the design. Any help appreciated.
its a rasterized file, not a vector file… what program did you create it in?
Procreate then a screen shot.
And I am guessing from you name you may have some suggestions for me and my iPad.
You need a vector line around the image that’s in the center of your coaster. You can add one right in the GFUI, like this (I’m honestly not sure if this is a regular feature or a premium feature);
OR you could add a circle and center it on your coaster from here (this is a premium feature);
Otherwise you will need to create a vector cutting line in an image editing program like Illustrator or Inkscape. I don’t use my iPad to design, but use Affinity Designer on my iMac.
Hope this helps.
That shows up on my GF. I am a premium member, so your guess is as good as mine.
Thanks I’ll see what I can do!
So much appreciated
i dabble with the mac… that’s for sure
the ‘screenshot’ tuned your vector int a raster … but the advice above is AWESOME
use the tools and make an outline, PROBLEM SOLVED!
The outline tool is one of my favorite premium uses!
I do admit I spend a DRAMATIC time making lines / circles / Outlines while I am working…
Illustrator for iPad will allow you to create vectors for cutting and scoring, but that program requires subscription which may not be to your taste. There are lots of other vector drawing apps for iPad including Affinity Designer, Vectornator, etc.
Thanks for the info. I’ll check into them!
