Okay…here’s what I found…
First of all the Trump Coasters file was in AI format, not SVG. (I do that all the time since I keep both open on the desktop, just make sure to save your AI files in SVG format because that’s what the Glowforge interface uses.)
Couple of other things in the file… the text had not been converted to Outline. With text you would normally right click on it and Convert to Outline, or set it up to do that in the SVG file saving dialog.
The other change that I made was to remove the shadow around the I DT image. It’s hard to see it, but that rectangle around the logo would have printed a faint color there, leaving a sharp rectangle on the coasters. Wasn’t sure if you wanted that or not, but I took it out in Photoshop. That leaves just the logo to print on the coaster. With raster images, the only color that does not print is 100% pure white pixels. The rectangle was not pure white, and close doesn’t count with this - it would have printed.
Another change that I made was to change the size of the coasters slightly. You had them at around 4.5" which is fine for cutting, but if you want to put eight of these on the bed you are limited to around 18" in width, since the engrave area on the bed is a little smaller than the cutting area. You have to fit them a little closer together and make them just a little smaller to do that many.
One final tip…to speed up processing and create a whole lot fewer operations, I combined all of the text and images for one of the coasters into one rasterized image, so that it engraves as one unit. Then I copied and pasted that along with the cut line for it. Each individual image in a file creates it’s own engrave operation, and with all the separate image components to the design, that turned out to be a LOT of separate operations. By combining them, it smooths the processing, and lowers the number of Engrave operations to one for each coaster.
Here’s the revised file. It still takes up to ten minutes to load right now, but I think that might be something to do with an area wide performance issue that has been popping up for the last few days, so load it and go get a snack or some coffee before cancelling it by backing out to the Dashboard, and if you see it there, open it up again.
