I’m new to GF and have been working with younger kids on Tinkercad I want them to create a nametag on the GF that has a rectangle cut out with their names engraved in the rectangle. I am having trouble with the engraving and the cutting together. It seems when I import the design from TC into the GF it either just everything out or just engraves. How do I do both together?
If you search on “tinkercad” over in “Glowforge Tips and Tricks,” you’ll find a bunch of Tinkercad tutorials by another teacher who’s using the same combination of tools.
I have 6th and 8th graders solving it like this. In the process of adding a My.Sketchup version… but it has to be imported into TinkerCAD to send it to the GF.
I’m so sorry that you are having an issue getting your nametags to engrave and cut. Have you had a chance to try the suggestion from @theroar84?
Please let us know if you are still having trouble.
As I re-read your post… I think this technique might be what you are looking for. I do it with a shape, but you can also do it with names created in Google Drawings.
