EDITED TO INCLUDE ANSWERS
I have yet to receive “the email” to get my GF.
Will we have the ability to manually sequence feature sort order, e.g.: being able to specify what gets cut in which order?
Answer is YES, we can sort the order. Based on a RGB color sequence set in the GFUI menu on the left.
Will this stick with or be embedded or attached to a design? Will we have to always manually set this order / sequence?
Yes and No. YES, The settings will stick if your making multiples of the same design. NO, the settings won’t stay if you close it it and reopen it.
Cut sequencing has been recently updated to cut Inside to Outside! This is good news.
It is less than ideal to have to open the printer to weigh down the workpiece to keep it from moving.
I noticed in this video that the cut sequencing is incorrect. The GF cuts the external profile first, thereby releasing the material that will make the final product from the rest of the workpiece, then tries to cut the remainder of the internal features.
I have experience with metal shop commercial production 3.5kw cnc lasers, and in the shop we ALWAYS cut the external profile LAST, after cutting internal features smallest to largest, while proceeding in a clockwise or counter clockwise direction.
I believe in the video the guy just tells it to cut all, instead of engrave the inside, with a profile (outside perimeter) cut, however even with cutting the part profile should be cut last. This way the portion of raw material that will make the final part will be held in place by the remainder/unused part of the material (what I would call the sheet/blank).
