Unlink clones. Convert Hexagon shapes to paths.
Combine all hexagons.
Use the Boolean Path Commands.
Make a copy of the inner cut line that you want to put around the honeycomb.
Cntrl + D for duplicate.
Send that to the bottom (important for deciding which path operation to use)
Path > Difference.
Clipping paths and masks don’t work with SVGs in the Glowforge. You have to think of them as pure paths or vectors with no hidden overlays.
If you want to keep a score to give an outline around the edge of the honeycomb, make sure that you keep a copy of the original outline path and make it a different color from the cuts.
Here is an example with the outline for the score shifted a bit and blue to show you the extra line.
Something like this:
Fixed so that the cutouts don’t drop out and it is attached appropriately around the edge.
This still isn’t correct because it isn’t attached at the edges of the honeycomb correctly round the outline. As it is, it would cut out the whole inse as one piece. If I can get to it latter, I’ll get those edges right. You would want to do a cut path to ensure you have open ends to connect.
I’m sure @evansd2 can tell you the exact steps. I always have to play with booelans a bit to get what I want.
