I currently use Inkscape to design objects to be cut on our makerspace’s laser, and make extensive use of layers to control what gets cut in a given burn run. It’s super-useful to make sure through holes, outlines, and everything else line up correctly, lets me have multiple text sets for our local maker event badges, build multiple sets of face graphics for the same game tokens…anyway, layers are awesome. Because the laser I currently cut with uses a virtual print driver, this works seamlessly with Inkscape–just set the active layers, hit print, and go.
Will my Glowforge offer the same ease of interaction with layers? Will the plugins handle this directly? If I open an Inkscape SVG or an Illustrator, Gimp, or Photoshop file in the web app, will I have control over what layers show up? If not, what’ll these do with layers, and what would GF’s recommended workflow be for this scenario be?
