Hi there, first off, i did post this feature request in the new Feature suggestion section, but I wanted to add a bit more picture and open discussion on how to work around the issue until if/when or not my feature request happens.
This is for users of Diode lasers only, being an Orturian my self, I noticed that due to the oval shape of the laser beam, the cutting depth is not the same in X and in Y - for these examples i’m cutting a finger/flex box.
looking at the underside it is clear that all Y cuts got through but not the X cuts.
My feature request would be for Lightburn to automagically separate the X and the X cuts into their own layers so that i can optimize the cutting of such shapes. or a feature to specify additional layers for X vs Y. Of course the manual way is to modify my file in illustrator as such:
And once imported in Lightburn it sets each color to it’s own layer (very cool by the way Oz)
Where is set C03 to 9 passes and C19 to 5 passes. Will test this tomorrow and see if I can get a nice optimized pop out cut :p.
Doing this by hand in Illustrator seems a little easier than using the B key on nodes in Lightburn but having the X ad Y separated magically by Lightburn would be a totally awesome feature… think it’s possible?
