Engraving offset circles

With an image I created a circle with an offset by about 1 mm, and select fill. But when the laser cuts, it goes back-and-forth and back-and-forth. Takes forever. Is there a way that you can have the laser simply cut in a circular pattern - instead of going back-and-forth and back-and-forth to decrease the thousands and thousands of rapid moves?

To that circle you created you should assign it a new layer with “cut” selected.
That will do a cut (draw a line) for the circular shape you create.

After thinking about things, I thought the same thing. Do a cut, do an offset by a 10th of a millimeter or so, do another coat, 10th of a millimeter or so, and another cut. Appreciate the insight.

Suggest you look at using offset fill rather than normal fill in that case.
