Hi all - first time posting here. I’ve got 1.5 years experience on an Epilog Zing as a basic user, and now I have my very own Boss LS-1420, and I’m trying to go from a simple user to a superuser…but I feel like I’m getting in my own way. I have previously used (and am currently using) a roller rotary (wheel-type, not hotdog type) for etching pint glasses, cocktail glasses, and stemless wine glasses. I’ve worked up my designs previously in CorelDraw and had a relatively simple way of etching them directly through the “Print” settings. So Lightburn is new to me, but I’m excited to take things to new heights with what the software offers!
All that said, I’m struggling with how to set up the roller rotary correctly, or at least how to account for the seating of my glass. I am positioning the glass to hit the rollers about an inch below the top of the glass…which of course throws off the object diameter that is input into the software. Do I need to adjust this diameter such that I can properly calculate a 360 degree design to have the proper length?
Additionally, I’ve been having to manually “Frame out” the area in Lightburn that I import my existing design into…is there any other way to do this, such as adjust the height and width of the canvas for the glass that I’m using?
Perhaps I’m overthinking it, but I’m feeling like my previous experience is hindering me, rather than helping me. Thanks for any help you could offer.
See attachment for my setup.
