I’ll probably have to explain this better than my title can explain.
Let’s say I have a project that’s 24" wide, and 40" long - but my Big Red 80 watter’s workspace is only 20" x 28"…however, it’s got the cool little pass through door feature on the front and back of the chassis that would literally allow me to feed a 28" wide by pretty much as long as I (damn well) want material through it.
Are there any features in Lightburn or tips that you might have that would help me break up the project/artwork into two (or more) sections, then line up the top and bottom sections as I feed it through the pass through door?
I hope that makes sense. Basically I’ll take my 24" x 40" project, put the top 20" of the artwork in the workspace in Lightburn, feed the first 20" of material into the machine and burn…then put the bottom 20" of the artwork in the workspace in Lightburn, and feed the next 20" of material into the machine and burn…so how do I make sure I’ve lined up the top and bottom sections up perfectly so there are no gaps or misalignment in the completed 40" long project? I’m open to thoughts/suggestions.
Note: I’m a newb with Lightburn and current generations of lasers, but I’m in IT and I used an Epilog laser about 14 years ago (casually) at a job I once had. So I have a decent understanding of concepts, but my frame of reference is Coral Draw on Epilog and I’m sure I’ve forgotten a lot in 14 years.
