Whats wrong with this file?


im very new at this and could not find the info that made it make sense.

I created a simple text sag to engrave and I can’t upload it.


What am I doing wrong?!



You need to convert your text to outlines.


Text objects can’t be engraved. Shapes can. That means that you need to convert these letters to shapes, and how to do that is specific to what program you’re using to make it. This will get you started:


But… if you’re using Inkscape, the command is “Path->Object to path”. It’ll convert it to a filled shape.


Thank you so much! I figured it out!


Great! Thanks @jbmanning5 and @evansd2.
