I had great success using this to generate a puzzle for my laser.
I have a question that is probably pretty simple.
I make a rectangle.
Then I choose your puzzle generator, 5 by 5, add spaces.
I then select 1/32" bit, cut on path.
I then download as svg file.
I open inkscape and import the svg.
Once in inkscape I perform the following:
-turn off fill
-set stroke to 1mm red
Now I have individually selectable puzzle pieces.
What I noticed after watching my laser cut this file the first time was that instead of making the 2 passes I told it, it was starting to make 3 passes. (actually it was doing each object twice because they appear twice in the file, then after all pieces were cut, it was doing the laser software requested 2nd pass).
I went back to my inkscape file and found that each puzzle piece is in my file twice.
The interesting part is that when I delete one of the puzzle pieces, the duplicate actually looks like it has a tab (ie. not cutting the whole piece). The piece is not solid. I have repeatedly checked and no tabs are set to be cut that I can tell.
-I want to have just 1 instance of each puzzle piece for my laser to process. Any idea how to do this? When I delete a piece, sometimes the object left is not entirely cut, It has white space. I’d like to have 1 continuous piece, without a space.
The puzzle it made was really nice. I’m cutting using glowforge against 1/4" baltic burch.
