Set up guide for laser cutting and engraving
Typical Set Out for AutoCAD designs
The drawing should be drawn to model size, NOT REAL SIZE. It should be saved as a DWG file.
Do not use layers - Make sure all laser work is in layer 0
After drawing the model always 'overkill' your drawing, we find that some drawings have multiple lines where something is copied and placed over the top of another line, the laser will see the multiple lines and cut them accordingly, which will add to the time it takes to cut your model adding to the cost.
