Hi Geordie,thanks for the great article and advice. I design and set up artwork for a lasercutter regularly using Adobe Illustrator. 95% of the time jobs go down without any issues, but every now and then the engraver does not recognise certain vector shapes and lettering (converted to curves). I have gone back and forth ensuring the vectors do not have additional shapes in or overlappings etc. Despite converting to curves and merging objects, certain objects are still not recognised. For example, Arial bold is used, converted to curves, but when it starts engraving it engraves everything but the 'T' letters in the sentence.Any suggestions as to how to avoid this or what is causing this?
