The Glowforge treats it a little differently, at least for now. I’ll clean up this file and write some settings on the file itself, but this is just to demonstrate. Here is a screenshot of a pattern of squares that have the stroke and fill each treated differently. From top left to right: Black stroke; black fill; colored stroke, black fill; colored stroke, colored fill. The import treats each of these separately. You might have to zoom in to note the differences.
In the first case with black stroke, black fill, all the squares are treated as one and you have only one choice of engrave.
Here is the result of opening the design. I designated the engraving values myself.
In the case of the second from the top left, color stroke, black fill this is what you get after opening. Note that now each box has a separate operation. Of course, I could keep importing a bitmap of a square also and achieve the same results. I need to designate each square to engrave, once I do that, the box fills in with a shade. At this time I can’t save the settings.
and here is the third from the left. It behaves at this point like the second from the left and fills the whole square if it is converted to engrave.
This has been a good exercise for me in thinking about how I would design a test sheet. With engraving you can change power, speed and dpi and also indicate the number of passes. So that gives quite a complex mapping to demonstrate.
In cutting/scoring, you can change speed and power and number of passes. I’ve done little tests here and there, enough to get the job done. I’ll have some time in the coming days to work this out more systematically and demonstrate.
It’s all doable!
