Working trial settings into your design

So incase you are not already aware, getting perfect settings on your first try on a new material is not really a sure thing. I am making this post to make sure there is no misunderstanding that I nail design settings the first try. Whenever I try and glowforge a new items I always first work a little test run into the design.

Some examples…

These shoes:

Well I first put a little jeep logo on the inside face of the shoe:

This jacket:

Well I first put a small design on the cuff:

This pumpkin:


Well I did one leaf first before the rest.

This hat and pants:

Well there is a small jeep logo in the underside of the hat brim and a small jeep on the ankle of one of the pant legs.

So what I mainly am trying to say is, I don’t get settings right the first time, I plan for them to need a little adjusting and work that into my makes. Just keep that in mind when you find settings on the community. They are a great start but the source of your material might be just a little different and you might have to slightly edit them.

Good idea, also on lots of designs you can put in extra stuff that it never visible.
