Engrave vs cut please

Hi there. I’m new to the world of laser cutting and waiting for my machine to arrive.

I had a play around with LightBurn to familiarise myself with it.

On the right hand side in the cut window (I think it’s called), how do I tell Lightburn what I want engraved, and what I want cut?

Thank you :slight_smile:

There is a drop-down selection allowing you to choose one of the available cut settings options. You can also double-click the layer color to expose the details ‘Cut Settings Editor’ window. In LightBurn we use the following terms: cut/mark=Line, scan/engrave=Fill, scan with cut line=Fill+Line


If you haven’t already, here is a good place to start a walkthrough of LightBurn. More videos on Youtube as well.
