I have a X-Tool D1, I used to have a K40 and all my designs were engraved perfectly directly from Corel Draw, however, after exporting them to DXF and SVG with this laser and the software I have a little bit of a hard time making lines that in my design are ticker or bold and when I engraved them on this Laser are really thin. I have tried some different settings like Fill + Line but is not getting me there.
How do I make Lightburn respect the thickness of the lines that I’m exporting on the file? Are there any settings I’m missing? I don’t want to re-desing all my stuff on Lightburn again.
Convert the stroke to a path before exporting. This will preserve the width of the stroke as an enclosed shape. If you use a Fill operation it will leave the line thick. If you’re working in CorelDraw there’s really little reason to use DXF if the target is LightBurn. Stick to SVG.
I don’t understand how this would have been any different with your K40, however. It might be that the laser focus dot was wider than the diode laser and gave you the look you wanted without doing so. But the finer the laser do the more apparent this will be.
Got it guys, Thank you so much for your help, I still need to do a lot of work converting some of my old designs. Now I just need to figure out how I can send it to the Laser, I guess is Fill + Line and figure out the settings on my X-tool D1
