I have a 20x12 art-board created in AI, within that art-board I have a rounded rectangle layout that is 14x11. I will be engraving items onto a 14x11 cutting board. When I add this artwork to the Glowforge it is nowhere near the size of the board that I have in the machine. The machine is registering the board in the machine as a 12 x 9.5 inch piece of material and it is not. The imported svg is showing the correct size (14x11) as shown in the picture below.
So how do I keep from resizing my svg file once uploaded to the GF? Clicking the Set Focus option generates an error as seen in the picture below. Refreshing the web page and restarting the GF changes nothing. Refreshing the bed image has no effect either.
This material is 1.6 inches thick and I am using this with the tray removed.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
I see this error alot when the material it is shooting the laser for the set focus on is either reflective a bit or is too dark. Try putting a piece of light colored paper or masking in an area that won’t be engraved and use that spot for the set focus.
I put the tray back in and now the auto focus will not generate an error. it resizes the bed image to get it close to the size of the material but it will not let me get the entire 11" piece of the line on the material. It shows the artwork “out of bounds” on the bottom. It is close though. I will try some of the other suggestions above.
