I would like to have Adobe illustrator as my chosen software to work with my Glowforge. I have never worked with illustrator and I have yet to download it to my MacBook.
Are the changes this gentleman makes to AI required to help me design in Illustrator ?
They’re not required, but they are definitely helpful.
First and foremost, thank you for your reply. What would be the difference if I did not make the changes?
By making the document changes Chris describe, your designs will always transfer to the glowforge at the correct size. The palette colors ensure that the operations occur in a predictable order. The interface changes will make designing for the GF easier, by focusing on the tools and settings needed.
None of these are absolutely required if you’re willing to make the changes manually for every file.
Thank you so very much for thoroughly explaining it to me. I truly do appreciate your time
