I finally bought something from the catalog and decided to give the luggage tags a try. My fiance really liked the design and want’s to give them to her wedding party. The blank back was a bit boring, so I added some artwork and a few lines to make it match the front.
Since my Glowforge camera is way out of alignment compared to my old machine. I loaded the luggage tag, then loaded the file for the back and placed them on top of each other. Then using the UI I ignored the back piece and engraved/cut the front.
When I change the UI to ignore the front artwork and engrave the back, it shows me an error of no artwork until I move the back artwork, then everything works fine.
Steps to repeat:
- Load the luggage tag
- Load a PNG image and place behind the luggage tag
- Set the PNG image to ignore
- Cut the luggage tag
- Set all UI elements on the front of luggage tag to ignore
- Set the PNG to Proograde engrave
The luggage tag cuts the border and small circles in a single job. Unfortunately, it cuts the outer border first, then the circles at the top, which can cause issues if the material isn’t completely flat. I suggest making the circles its own job and place it above the outer border cut.
