I am trying to make some acrylic educational traceable sheets! I can NOT figure out how to make traceable shapes that will show up on the glowforge to engrave!! They show up as cut but when I change it to engrave they disappear. I have my “cut” in red and everything else I want engraved in black. I am Using inkscape but could use illustrator if I need to. These are the steps that I have been doing.
- Make shape with shape tools.
- Change shape to no fill and assign a dash
- Go to Path > Object to path
- Reselect shape. Go to Extensions > Modify Path > Covert to Dashes
- Object > Group
I saw these steps in another post and thought they might help but I still can not get it to work. ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much!!
