I tried searching the forums for an answer, but I unfortunately didn’t have any luck. My current Fusion360 workflow (until dxf is available) is to export as a dxf in fusion, bring it into inkscape, save as a “Plain SVG”, and then import it into the GFUI. The problem that I am running into is that when I go to cut (not engrave) the glowforge does 2 passes to cut through the material. I first figured it was duplicate lines in Inkscape, or maybe the lines were actually filled in objects, and not vectors, but I am able to adjust the line width in inkscape just fine. Then I thought it might be because the line was too wide making 2 side by side cuts to cut away the material, but changing the line thickness down to 0.1mm didn’t solve it either.
I cant really see the toolpath very well in the preview (cant zoom in either)strong text, which would help me diagnose if it’s the svg or the glowforge software. One thing I did notice is that it appears to cut exactly on top of the original cut. I have done cuts where they are right next to each other before, but it appears to cut directly on top of the previos path.
Then I thought it was just the standard proofgrade settings to do 2 passes (This all happened with Medium Draftboard,Medium Acrylic, and Medium Maple), but I had 1 time where it didn’t do it. It only happened once, but I used the exact same Fusion-Inkscape-GFUI process to create that svg. I am almost out of ideas. Anyone else have any problems with this? It is a bit frustrating since it doubles the time to cut each part, and it just chars the edges of everything.
On an unrelated note, is there any way to see what the stock proofgrade settings are? That would really help judge the kind of power it takes to cut through different materials when you want to use manual mode.
