I come from the print world and design in Illustrator. When I print on my wide format printer and need to contour cut, I set a very specific color for that stroke and use Point 1 as a stroke weight.
I thought it would be the same for laser cutting? I have been using Point 1 as an outline/stoke when cutting for my laser but keep reading but using .001 as a stroke line and use the color Red in RGB specifically. This made me think since I am using Point 1 am I wasting “time”, “laser burn rate” and is my sizing off and I just didn’t know it?
- So my questions are What stroke size should I be using and what is happening when I use 1 point for the stoke weight?
- Does the color I choose really matter to light burn? It seems to identify the different color fine and I can easily choose what color does what?
