I’ve been experimenting with my glowforge by making miniatures out of the characters on the Borderlands 2 in game vending machines. I embed a raster graphic inside an SVG to ensure the engraved raster elements always align with cut vector elements. I was running out of room on my sheet of draft board and needed to rotate one of the files. Since GFUI doesn’t have that functionality yet, I opened the .svg file in inkscape and rotated all of the elements 90 degrees. When I cut the file the results were awful. The engraved raster elements were extremely pixelated. After several failed attempts to change the results by playing with the engrave settings I decided to experiment with editing the SVG file. I found if I rotated the raster image in a raster program (GIMP in this case) and embedded it in the SVG instead of rotating the embedded element in the SVG, the engrave worked out fine.
I haven’t had an opportunity to test this with other files, but it appears rotating an embedded image within the .svg causes the glowforge to severely pixelate the engraving.
Has anyone else run into this problem?
