Was just trying to engrave a logo. I and I had noticed this with something else prior that I had engraved… The laser wasn’t firing at ALL when it was supposed to be engraving. So I cancelled a few times… tried again… nothing.
Finally I went and rasterized the vector that I had and tried it again. And noticed that it had TWO logos. One raster and one vector. In the original file I THINK I actually had two vectors on top of each other because I had made a copy to make sure I had the original handy while I fiddled with it. But what I’m seeing is that if there are two black objects in a file and they intersect, that cancels out any engrave. In this case it cancelled the entire engrave since the two logos were identical and sitting on top of each other.
In the prior case I had some script lettering that overlapped in one place… and where that overlapped, the engrave was “cancelled out”.
Should this be the proper way it behaves? I would THINK that we would want OR logic, not XOR. IE: anything black is engraved regardless of what’s underneath it.
Now that I know what’s happening, it’s not TO big of a deal as I can just make sure I take that into account and weld the objects together into one… but it sure had me scratching my head for about a half hour trying to figure out why my engrave wasn’t working.
