Using the fill mode, I am noticing that as the laser scans up the image it will sometimes skip sections and then move back to the bottom after it has gone to the top and pick up the sections it missed the first time. This behavior only adds to the the total time since it makes for extra Y movements.
In the picture below (where each rectangle is an exaggerated scan line) it would fill all the red scan lines, then return to the bottom and fill the blue scan lines. Why does it not just scan the full image from bottom to top? The image is a vector image all grouped together as one object.
Is it something in my Optimization settings that is making it do this?
This is what the preview looks like half way through (before it starts from the bottom again)
