Just joined the forum and laser cutting engraving in general. Quick run down.
Machine - Atomstack 5a Pro (yes I know, 40 watt input 5.5 - 6.5 watt output if lucky.
Latop and desktop both win 10
Issues, questions and or requests:
I am creating whiskey flight boards and I’ve seen the questions asked but no real answers or full solutions to what I am trying to do.
I want to create a thin circle around the number. I know you can use “offset shapes” and both" to create the appearance of a circle, but I want to now fill that inside. So far adding power makes a better appearance but it’s not perfect.
I have another line that used “line” and it just avoided the lettering inside the box, resulting in the lettering being raised and the area around it engraved out. While the effect is super cool, it takes a long time. I want the box around it (used offset shapes for the boxes) to line and then the lettering to line and fill but leave the rest of the inside of the box alone to speed up the project.
I would like to request the ability to draw a square and lock all object inside or delete all objects inside. Perhaps I’ve missed that part or …
I do main design on my desktop, but since I Live in an apartment, I use the laptop for cutting/engraving. I can transfer the file by dropbox etc, but is there a way to also send my cut settings etc along with it? By USB perhaps?
The lettering I’m using, once it’s typed out, it somehow can be deleted in parts. The font has a thin line and then a “shadow” line. The “Shadow” line comes out perfect, the thinner inner line needs more power on another layer. However when I type the font, I cannot separate the lines in order to push into another layer. However when I select the object I can delete it in parts, unless I click a few more times and then used backspace to delete the entire word. Anyone know how I can separate the two as layers to achieve what I am looking for?
One last thing, I was messing with Lightburn and it crashed ruining my first project. Did some searching and found the ‘Start from here’ button in preview, but since I don’t know where it stopped at (I had moved the laser trying to figure it out) is there another way to see where the last position was?
Anyhow, great software, will be buying full license once I figure some more stuff out.
Running short on time, will add more and better pics later.
Thank you for your help and nice to meet you all.
