Ok I thought a huge part of why this needed to be online only was that it was going to do alot of the fancy math on the back end so that everything is done in the most efficient/best way.
But I just put a print in that will take 2.5 hours to engrave. That’s fine, engraves can take quite a while and there is alot to engrave on this design.
But then i saw the how its going about the engrave and I realized it could have reduced the time by nearly an hour.
I have a grid of squares with a border that goes all the way around them.
Its doing the boarder all at once. Then the squares as a separate pass.
That means the head is traversing the entire piece to zap a 3 mil segment on either side and doing NOTHING of the space in between that ALSO needs to be engraved.
Anyone know of a way to design around this? Or if there is any chance that GF is looking at this.
Its a proof grade piece so the engrave settings are all automatic. I designed it in inkscape.
