How does the GF software interpret the files that we are going to send it? All I’ve really heard is “color”. In the below example, the red represents cut and the green represents engrave.
This is a rectangle with a red stroke and a green fill, with a circle that has a white stroke and white fill behind it. My expectation based on what I’ve read here is that this would result in an engraved area with an unengraved circle in the middle… a “dot” stamp if you will. But then I wonder if the GF will engrave based on the object as opposed to the visual representation of the objects, in which case I have to use the operations to join the circle to the rectangle… but that results in this:
Now I have a cut out rectangle that is engraved, and a cut out circle. I don’t want the circle cut out, but I can’t separate the path of the circle from the rectangle to give them different strokes.
Then I look at this… which I am hoping to make as a stamp, and I wonder how it will work if in the end, the green part is all comprised of one circle that is behind everything else.
