Uploading files as svg

On Friday, I was able to upload an *.svg file, ignore the background and cut and score in the images on a test piece of 1/8" corregate cardboard. Today, I can’t.

Glowforge is still allowing me to ignore the background, but will only now allow me to engrave, not score or cut.

Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong today?


SVGs are container files - meaning they can contain both raster and vector elements. Only vector elements can cut/score so it sounds like your file today contains only raster elements.



Now to create a vector only SVG. Thank you!!


Oh no, I’m sorry to hear about the trouble @tina1.

Would you let us know if the troubleshooting steps provided by @ekla help?
