Scanned object type

#1

Are Glowforge-scanned images treated as raster or vector?


#2

Raster


#3

Both. You can select an outer boundary of objects that can become a cut. Then the fillled object can be engraved.


#4

To jump in on that question… I was thinking about making tool drawer liners from EVA with the shape of the tools cut out. Can I put the EVA on the bed with the tools arranged on it, take the scan, remove the tools and have it cut out all of the shapes?


#5

Yes. You can do the trace to get the outlines of the tools and then cut them. Just need to make sure your background foam is contrasty enough with the tools.


#6

Great, I could put light tools on raw black foam and put down paper mask for dark tools to help with the contrastedness.

Glowforge rocks. I can think of so many ways to use that functionality. wow. thanks!
