Engrave - Fill - Scan Vector lines


I want to engrave a vector object, for example a circle, but instead of using the “Line” option where the laser will just follows the specified path, I want to “scan it” or engrave the circle line like the “Fill” option but only marking the circle delimiter.

Note that I don’t want to fill all the circle inside but “scan” only the line that limits the circle.

What is the best way to accomplish this?


The simplest way is to use the offset tool to make another circle around the first one, on the same layer, then set that layer to fill. It will fill the area between them.
