Couple of things that caused all of the text to show up as separate engraves…
The color that you used for the A is slightly different from the color that you used for the r and the t in your first word, so it gets a separate operation. The word Art is set up as Fill colors without strokes, so they will read as engraves.
The word Laser consists of strokes without a fill color. When the information was saved as an SVG it was automatically converted for you if you chose to save Text as Outlines, but it made individual batches because the “e” is also a different color from the other letters.
The mauve lines in the design are unfilled strokes so they show up as Cut lines, which you then converted to a Score.
All of these little issues can be worked around in the interface, as you saw, but then you have to change settings for a lot of different engraves if you want to adjust anything, and that can get tedious.
I just posted a little writeup on how to set up vector drawing program files for the Glowforge interface last night…it might be of some interest for what you’re trying to do.
When you really get going make sure to post a picture with a pile of scraps and bits of masking stuck everywhere, so the rest of us don’t feel so bad
Looks really good, can’t wait to see what you make!
That looks spectacular! The results and the twins both, I mean.
Very clever to double up - you’ll wind up with 2x the production speed and still spend less than most 40w lasers. You’ll love the UI for switching, too - it’s really elegant to swap between units when both are printing.
