Random Lines being added to engrave


I have tried engraving this design three times and, each time, one or more horizontal lines get engraved that are not in the design. Always in a different place. Any ideas what might be causing this?


Random lines showing up on work

And if anyone can clue me in as to when I’ll stop being “New” and able to post more than one image at a time, I’d be grateful. Anyway, here’s another pic:


And, last one:


Might be a corrupted file…if you want to zip the file (don’t change anything, just zip it first, ) and upload it, someone can take a look at it.



Adding extra lines in engraving groups of paths

I have a hunch, testing now…


Guessing there is an open but filled path. But I’m sure @jbv is on it.


I think it has to do with the parsing of overlapping shapes. I did a Unite operation and printed it, it came out fine.



Man, you guys are quick! (i hadn’t even made it back around.) :smile:


Thanks so much! I’ll give it another shot after work.


Success! Thanks for the help!


Thanks so much for your help @jbv.

@shawnmcbee Those turned out great! If you have another question, please post a new topic.
