I know it’s possible to delete overlapping lines before sending my file to the laser. This works well for me.
However, I also use lightburn to export files to use on a different machine (mostly dxf). Even though ‘delete overlapping lines’ is ticked in the optimization settings, all overlapping lines remain. Is there a way to change this?
No answers? I’m assuming it’s not possible then…
I’ve seen nothing that makes me think this is possible.
You could try a hack:
- select the design you want to export
- Edit->convert to cut (debug)
- This will leave you with the original and the converted cut lines
- The converted cut lines should reflect the deletion of the overlapping lines
- Export the cut lines
Note that this may leave your geometry in a bit of a funky state. At a minimum the overlapped line portion will be an open shape if it wasn’t before.
Anyway, give it a shot as you’ll quickly know if this can work for you.
