I’m having an issue with Lightburn picking a bad starting point on a shape. I’m cutting acrylic rulers, and if the start point is along a line, I’ll often get a slight bump or deformation at the point where the laser starts and stops the cut. To correct this, using Trotec’s Job Control, we have always selected a starting point for our lines in Illustrator that is at a corner. Here is the problem that I’m seeing:
As you can see, I have the start point in Illustrator set to the corner of my shape. Lightburn is choosing to start in the middle of the line. Here are the things I have tried:
- Disabling all cut optimization
- Enable/Disabling Choose best starting point and Choose corners, if possible
- Turning all of the optimization settings on/off one at a time to see if anything affects how LB chooses the starting point
Any help here would be much appreciated. I have orders to cut and am falling behind while I try to figure this out.
