Engrave all paths before the next pass

Hi there!
I’m a newbe of LB.

When I cut an image composed of several paths disconnected from each other if I set (for example) 4 passes the software executes the 4 passes path by path and this causes the wood to overheat (burning).

I would like to know if it was possible to set LB to do the step for all paths before moving on to the next step.

I would like in the 1st pass LB engrave ALL the image
in the 2nd pass ALL the image again
and so on!

I hope I have explained myself well … I am Italian and my English is not really great

You can, but it’s fiddly.

Group your object

Set your passes to 1

Copy and paste your object as many times as you want passes - in this case, 3 copies
Set each copy to a different layer, with the same cutting parameters

Select all objects and centre

Set optimization to ‘order by layer’

When you run the job, each layer will complete in turn.

This is a great trick to do what I want!
I try it now! Thank you very much

Only one more thing: where can I to find the menu you screenshoted? (Cut Optimization Settings)


Thanks a lot! I’m the italian version and it have another name! :smiley:

You can also try setting your fill layer as Fill all shapes at once and turning on flood fill. Test it in preview and you may find that it meets your objective:

Good point - I never use flood fill - I really should experiment :slight_smile:
