I’ve been using my Glowforge for about a month and LOVE it, but I’m stuck right now and really need your help.
I thought this would be a pretty simple project. I’ve done something like it before and it worked great, but this file it just won’t work. What am I doing wrong?
I created a vector file in Affinity Designer on the iPad Pro (my normal workflow). The file has 2 layers: one for the cut and the other for the engrave. The cut layer is red. The engrave layer is yellow. Then I exported the SVG as I always do, starting with SVG for Export, then changing to “Use Document Resolution,” “Text as Curves,” and “Flatten Transforms.”
I uploaded the file to the Glowforge app and when I select “Engrave” for the layer I want engraved, it leaves out key engrave lines, however when I select “Score,” it the lines are all there as expected. Trouble is, I need them to engrave, not score.
Here are the Affinity export settings I used:
Here’s how the file comes in:
These are my engrave settings:
When I switch the layer to “score” all the lines are there, though:
And, in case it helps, here’s the SVG file:
Thanks to anyone who can help!
