I am cutting thin materials, they flap around from the fan wind. Is there any way to set the direction of cut. Or cut priority? for example i want the central part cut first then the next etc and finally the outer boarder.
Now it cuts the boarder first and the material flapps around skrewing up all the subsequent cuts.
I tried that but it gets very messy with glue, the thin material is absorbent, i tried with water and that actually worked pretty well. It didn’t need much tension. I also tried using covering paper on both sides that stiffened it up a bit.
I use 0.1mm as the size of the “tiny” break. Stays together until I push on it and then it comes out clean. You do get a “white” line vs the laser scorch on either side which may or may not be an issue.
You can make custom dash patterns and then use those as chads.
From a previous post about doing this in Inkscape:
I added a new dash pattern of “20,.25” (mm) to the default preferences, which puts a .25mm gap in the lines. Inkscape can convert dashed lines to actual segments, which is nice. This worked very well, they tore out after the cut with pretty much zero tab left behind. It was a delicate balance, just enough to hold the paper down without interfering with the design.
