Ok So, (Friday) <— my glowforge name… HAS ARRIVED and so far everything has been great and fairly good on alignment.
However now that I’m starting to use the laser I am wanting to do multi colored projects. I have downloaded the illustrator multiple shade of grey and blacks for the different power levels but the it just shade everything the same color when engraving, I have to manually change the power for each layer, is there an option to have it engrave the whole image and different power levels by itself? or do you need a jpg or something for images to auto shade?
I am just starting out on illustrator and so far think I am doing fairly well at it but does anyone know or have or have had made a detailed easy to understand tutorial on how to do multi shade images and cut paths around said images v.s. just standard black and white cut outs? I cannot find any really good detailed demos of it on youtube. Any help would be great.
Also I seen a test file at one point for testing new material settings with different shades and cut settings in one file, does anyone have that and if so do you actually have to manually setup each item in that file or is it auto shaded to correct settings like I want a phone to do?
