I really love the look of the diagonal engraving in LW4. The texture is really cool.

@K1111 that looks great. Would you mind sharing your workflow on how you setup the job? I’m curious how others are using the new LW4 settings to achieve various results.

@Carl_Fisher (null) I build my stuff in Illustrator. If I’m raster engraving I export a BMP for engraving and a separate SVG for cutting. Your post about being able to drag and drop individual paths was really helpful. I was getting some darker edges (which may have been due to the raster module not reading power settings, something that has been fixed). To remedy that I added a thick engraved border outside of my cut area so that the darker parts weren’t affecting my engraving. The ability to differentiate and select different paths is a really great feature. I was able to use an outside path so that my two files lined up the way I wanted them to, and then just select the inside path for cutting.

What kind of laser do you use? CO2 or diode?

@Walter_K_opaque CO2 (K40).
