I had prepared several designs in PDF format while I was waiting for the Glowforge to arrive. I was disappointed at how hard it was to convert the PDF designs into something that could be both cut and engraved in one attempt.
However, I managed to get these two cranked out. The first is a clock back in and although the machine visualized the surface before it began, it did print slightly off center. From a distance I don’t think it’s too noticeable.
The other is a picture frame. I was able to convince the machine that the etched in image was a new design to be cut. It definitely didn’t cut where I wanted it to, but the result is acceptable.
Practice, practice! I don’t have a lot of experience in the new were graphic design software, so if somebody has a quick tip on how to differentiate engrave lines cut lines, I’d appreciate it.
