to explain my problem, I will add a bit of context.
hi I have used lasers for a while. before I used Lightburn I used the software that comes with a trotec engraver. I draw in a cad/design program mostly and sometimes use illustrator. I generally export to dxf. to then import that dxf into Lightburn.
problem: my drawing changes on several points.
1.minor issue (can be solved by changing my design flow).
Lightburn disregards solid hatches. only if I let there be space in between and explode the hatches then it shows. this is fine in itself because I can just give the object in question another color and let Lightburn know to fill it. then it will probably do the job just as well. I’m only used to filling it in my drawing program as well.
- main issue why I write this report (hoping that it can be changed or that there is a workaround for it).
My goal: to get the laser to engrave thick lines.
In my drawing space I have set a line to let’s say 3mm thickness. When I import that drawing Lightburn disregards all ling thickness and properties I assigned to it. And goes for straight hairline.
That’s not what I want as a result. I wanted a 3mm thick line.
Lightburn does do this on lines, when I import an image of the lines.
But an image of the line comes with its own problems of alignment to the rest of the product. (and scale)
My main worry is problem number 2. Is there a way to work around this behavior or to fix this?
Thank you all in advance for your help.
