PREPARING YOUR FILES-
VECTOR LINES

There are two types of vector lines for CNC and laser cutting:

Cutting  - All the way through the material. (Red)

Engraving - Into the Surface of the material. (Blue)

Make sure you set these correctly.

Red lines laser cut, blue lines laser engrave.

PREPARING YOUR FILES-
PHOTOS & GRAPHICS

Bitmap images need to be in black and white and will need to have a a good difference between shadow and light and be in black and white.

If the photo doesn't have good contrast the engraving will not work.
