I haven’t worked much at all with the trace function on this machine because I’ve had so many of my own designs I wanted to try. But @bill_laba’s recent trace results really inspired me to give it a go.
It’s no secret to many of you that I like to do rubberstamping and make cards (in fact, @marmak3261 has commented on the size of my stamp collection). Often I will stamp an image then hand cut it with scissors so I can use the added dimension on a card. No hand cutting needed any more, I’ve got a laser!
For scale, the rubber boots image is less than 1.5" tall.
These images were stamped on 140 lb cold press watercolor paper then placed in the bed of the Glowforge. I used the Trace function of the GFUI to autotrace the images (truly astounding trace quality!) then cut them on the perimeters. Stamp set used was from PinkInk stamps. Power 1%, speed 197 in/min.
