Missing choice in drop down menu for action choice

I’m new and trying to program my first job. I have everything but the last step off cutting out the project. I don’t have the choice of “cut” in my drop down choice. I have: Fill, line, Fill & line and Offset/fill. None of these allow me to cut. When I look under my “tool” task icon I have the choice of " Cut Shapes" listed but I cannot choose it. I’m obviously missing a setting somewhere. I have a 100W CO2 w/ Trocen controller.

You want to use “Line” and set power and number of passes to be high enough and slow enough to cut.

There is really no difference to the laser between engraving a line and cutting a line, except power for the specific material.

If you can cut 1mm deep into an 2mm acrylic part, that same setting will cut through a 1mm thick part…

So it’s just terminology.

Take care

Good luck.
