This has been driving me nuts: the design has only single lines, but the laser cuts most of the sections twice. I’ve tried all the options I can think of and its still double cutting. Turning off Optimize Cut Path seems to help, but many of the sections are still cut twice.
I design was imported form a DXF generated by Fusion360 if that makes a difference.
I’d be happy to supply the file.
Sometimes when importing dxf files the lines get doubled up.
This can happen if the shapes had both a fill and a stroke.
You might be able to use “Edit => Delete Duplicates” if they are true copies of each other.
Thank you for the suggestion. The reason I’m posting about a possible bug is the laser is double cutting but there are only single shapes:
I’ve been playing with every possible option I can find to solve this as its holding up production, to no avail, which is why I resorted to posting here.
Strangely, turning on Optimize Cut Path (with any options) makes it worse.
Interestingly, if I delete a shape it disappears, i.e. there is no duplicate shape behind it.
BUT, if I use the Edit Node tool and move a node, then it appears as if there are still two shapes there.
Can you email the DXF itself? It looks like it was auto-joined into two loops and I’m looking for good test cases to prevent that.
This happens often if you export the silhouette of a shape - you get an outline for both the top and bottom silhouette of the shape, doubling all the lines.
Sure, where can I email it?
