I cut a lot of script text. Like, a LOT. My design process is always the same. Same font, connect letters as needed, weld together in Affinity Designer & export to SVG the same way each time, and each cut is just vector, full bed width.
Twice now I’ve seen the glitch in the photo below in a lower case d. Fortunately it was just on MDF that I’m buying locally by the 4x8 sheet. So it was cheap enough of a glitch and I have tons of MDF, but if it had happened on my last piece of a mirrored or glitter sheet for something that needs to get out to a customer, I’d be super annoyed.
The first time it happened, I re-ran the same file as a score (shrank it down first to reduce waste) and it looked correct. Then ran that same reduced size as a cut and it was still fine. (reduced in GFUI from full width to ~4”) So I figured it was a one time thing and tried cutting it full size and it glitched again. I made a new SVG and it was fine. A day later I ran a completely different job and it happened again on another d, so I just made a new SVG and it worked.
I could see it being a bad SVG, but if that was the case why would the score or a smaller sized cut work fine?
Here is the glitch:
Here is how it looked after both the reduced size score & cut. I think this pic is the cut:
