    You can select your doubled/overlapping design, hit Ctl-K or Arrange/Break Curve Apart (it will become 20 curves), and then click on each of the 10 duplicates and delete. Finally, select the 10...

    Jumping around on the cuts definitely helps reduce the fire hazard, albeit at the cost of taking more time.

    I cut some snowflake ornaments from 1/8 clear and white acrylic a couple of years ago,...

    servo motors, but not stepper motors, which wouldn't be able to cope with the Trotec's high acceleration/deceleration curves... and yes, could be dirty encoder though no idea whether they use a...

    Maybe you could cut a slotted rectangle out of acrylic as a filler. The rectangle would be 1/4" wide (slot width) and as long as the base's slot, and a 1/8" slot in the middle of the rectangle to...

    I have a repeat customer who wants oak engraved. I think it looks horrible but he loves it. It's like Kev said, when you try to deep engrave you will get significant highs and lows from the...

    Everyone has to figure out what their time is worth, and it is very common for someone new to a field to undervalue themselves due to their inexperience, quite understandable. However, be aware that...

    I don't know about the older Radius print driver, but newer Epilog drivers have several relevant settings in Printing Preferences. First, on the General tab, you can set the Job Type as Raster,...

    Did you report your power and speed settings correctly? You say your first pass is full speed and second pass only 40 speed. With both at 100 power, you'd be getting most of the final depth from...

    I don't recall how much a can costs, but it probably is sort of like Cermark in that you use so little that the actual cost per application is pretty low. JDS has LazerDark in black, brown, yellow,...
