Example of parts that are “Nested” to save space and materials
Remember to expand any fills or objects to make strokes and paths. This is the only data in the file the laser can read.
– Resolution is best set at 90dpi in order to get requested scaling. Include a 1″ by 1″ reference square in the file submission for correct scaling.
– All jobs will be processed at 1:1 scaling. please include in your submission the units in the design as well as the thickness of the desired materials being used.
– Please include “hatch filled” areas that need raster work. preferably horizontal lines spaced 0.2-0.3mm apart. See below for details.
First you need to convert the solid “fills” into strokes only. Next, you need to fill in areas instead with lines using commands such as hatch or hatch fill (Inkscape can enable this by downloading and installing the extension eggbot found here). After it should look something like the picture below if up close. If drawing is not at desired look, try joining lines and closing curves or and even grouping before hatch filling. Spacing between hatch fills should be between 0.2 – 0.3 mm and be horizontal.
