Missing part of the image and another part not engraving as much as it shows

Hello, I have a file that printed really well except for 3 pieces. I tried to export them from the file and re-upload and try again. I also printed again from original file. Only these three pieces were a problem.

The white background Spiders and earth worm.

SVG of just the three pieces as a re-try = Hive Missing

Original full SVG = Hive Final small

All printing just took place over the last 20 min.

I will send a pic or the results from my phone.


Here is everything else.

The spiders are double-line. The earthworm has an exact duplicate on top of itself.

This isn’t a Glowforge issue, it’s a design/file issue.


Thanks @eflyguy, that’s right! The Glowforge won’t print overlapping duplicated vector designs. Could you please try removing one of the layers, and trying the print again? Let us know how it goes.

Thank you. I figured it was user error, just did not know how to fix it. Thanks for the help, going to try it now.
