There is a thread in here somewhere that has the sequence list if it is via color. (not sure anyone can tell you left right up down or whatever if all same color).
I have it as a personal palette.
Listed as follows:
C75 M68 Y65 K90
If someone doesn’t pop in with a link, I can drill down and locate the exact hex codes for you.
As for copies of a copy and ordered burn after that? Code logic I imagine. (fancy talk for dunno)
went to wikipedia article and found #22ff00 under the color section as an example, if you sort by that number you would use it as a cutting order.
Colors can be applied to all visible SVG elements, either directly or via fill , stroke , and other properties. Colors are specified in the same way as in CSS2, i.e. using names like black or blue , in hexadecimal such as #2f0 or #22ff00 , in decimal like rgb(255,255,127) , or as percentages of the form rgb(100%,100%,50%) .
sort by hex value and it matches up nicely I think someone is going to have to do a bunch of cuts with tons on colors and see how it matches up. Or get one of their programmers to pipe up :-D, Python rocks!!! Java sucks!! (there, that will get a programmer’s reaction )
I think since its all one color it calculates fastest cut times and cuts the fastest available paths (thats just a guess of mine though, seems to be that everything is calculated based on top speed possible to make print time less. Thats why some insides and some out sides all out of what would be normal orders we would think would be normal. This is just from what I noticed in all of my projects over time), if you want specific order make all different colors then order manually. I do this with my inside cuts are purple, scores are light blue, and outer cuts are red. Then I put them in that order so i know it will cut that way.
It would be really handy if this was documented. I spend a lot of time reordering layers in the GF UI that could be avoided if I could tell what order they were going to end up in in advance. On a related note, is there any way to put cut/score/engrave settings in the file in advance so they don’t have to be done by hand (and possibly incorrectly) in the UI?
Strokes will be automatically identified as cuts (and have to be manually changed to scores). Fills will be automatically identified as engraves.
But no - not a way, that I’ve seen or anyone has discovered, to automatically set up a score. GF does it with catalog files, but I suspect that it involves adding in additional info with a text editor to the SVG files.
Everybody knows that unless they just got their Glowforge today and haven’t read the manual. I asked about cut/score/engrave settings. As it stands now, I have to redo the settings by hand every time I bring a file in. I have some pretty complex files and it is easy to forget something. If anybody else has discovered some secret feature that does this, it would be great to know. No text editing would be necessary — you can name elements in Adobe Illustrator and I’ll bet you can in Inkscape and other programs. too. Here’s a file I created in under a minute. See the id= parameters on the elements and groups.
