  • Goodbye Moshi or how to run your laser printer on Arduino

    *not extensive. Is there no way to edit posts?

    Which version of Inkscape? I went looking for version/bit-count information and couldn't find specifics.Everything I'm talking about is created in Inkscape, I'm not importing anything, I'm building stuff in Inkscape and it's still doing this. And the vectors are extensive, the files are not complicated.

    1. When I try to export rasters it gives me the following error:"Unable to generate raster for object flowRoot4133 as it does not have an x-y coordinate associated."Inkscape seems inconsistent in when it's willing to try to export things as raster (I likely don't understand some deciding parameter yet), but when it does it throws that error. Is there something you're doing to avoid this?2. The effect is shown in the attached picture, you can see the circles it burns at the start or end of each path. I have limited experience with cnc subtractive machining, but it looks similar to the burn patterns I've seen during plasma cutter startup/shutoff. I couldn't find any controls on pause/dwell after laser ignition in Marlin (didn't look line by line though), so perhaps it's simply p...see more »1.

    Pretty much made it. Two problems remain.1. How do I export raster objects along with vector inside of Inkscape? I want to vector cut things and fill in some of the area but it seems only to export the vector outline2. The laser cutter pauses while igniting the laser, the dwell time isn't always the correct amount of delay and leaves holes in thin material. Is there somewhere to control this, even if only in the firmware?
