Hi there, we recently bought a GlowForge machine and are yet to use it. It’s all set up and I’m laying out a project to be cut and am wondering if there are some shortcuts that you guys know about that would help expedite this process.
I work for an architectural firm and we use Revit to draft all of our projects. Since Revit is a 3D drawing program, in the past when we’ve sent files out to print from outsourced laser cutting companies I have had to draw basic lines, making for example GREEN lines over the parts I want to be cut and blue lines over the parts I only want etched. Is this how I should set up files to print with the GlowForge as well or what’s the quickest way I can communicate to the machine what I’d like it to cut out and what to etch? See attached PDF of an example file I had cut for us by another company and please let me know how best to proceed as I’m working on laying this out now and am hoping to send it to print this afternoon! Speak to you soon.
