I am burning a design with 3 layers: 1. line that was extracted via lightburn form a PNG image, 2. the PNG image which is used to provide some shading inside of the lines 3. Graphics and text (created in lightburn)
that are fill + line.
All show as properly aligned in lightburn UI.
If I run the line layer 1 and the graphics layer 3 , they are aligned most of the time (one example shifted)
If I run all 3 layers the graphics are shifted to the right by about the width of the image.
If I run layer 2 (image) and layer 3 (graphics) the graphics are shifted to the right most of the time (one example was good).
If I run one layer at a time: e.g. layer 2 (image) then cut layer 3 they are aligned
This happens both in direct connect more (which I normally use) and if I send the file to the laser and run from there.
I am running Lightburn 1.0.04 on a PC with windows 11, Laser is OMtech 3555 135w with Ruida 6442G controller.
Attached photo shows the problem with the small arcs (the start of the graphics layer before hitting stop) shifted.
Top left shows all 3 layers working properly (luck on first try)
Bottom left shows where layer 1 and layer 3 were cut together resulting in the arc indicated as try 1 direct. The full circle and slash were a separate second cut to see if they would still align. Both passes were done direct from lightburn
Top right shows layer 2 and 3 in one run where the file was sent to the laser and run from there
Bottom middle was done as 2 separate passes, one with the image, one with the graphics and it worked.
Bottom right was done in 1 pass (direct form lightburn) . This was then used with more text on the cutting board successfully.
If you are wondering about the design it is for a cutting board designated as gluten free for my daughter with celiac disease.
