I use Corel Draw X8 home edition to do design work or make adjustments to files. I then export to a svg file to be brought into Lightburn. I’m working with a box design to get a feel for Lightburn process and capabilities. I have Lighburn set to run the parts of this file at 230 mm/min to cut 3.2 mm Birch Baltic ply with 3 passes. I group the parts of the box design separately so that I can do them one at a time to make sure it cuts through. Here is what I have observed.
Lightburn will cut a small section, turn off the laser, back up and then burn the section again doing this 3 times then it moves on. Is this normal or is a setting not right.
Lightburn will then do the above until it is about half way through, reverse direction and do the same sections again 3 times making a total of 6 passes over each section.
Lightburn will then move to an untouched section of the design and do the same thing as above.
It seems to me that Lightburn should make 3 solid passes instead of doing little sections individually 3 times.Why it is duplicating cuts has got me perplexed as well. Am I misunderstanding or missing a Lightburn setting or is Corel Draw causing a problem.
I love Lightburn by the way.
