Lasers need artwork made up of vector paths rather than pixel based images. 

Za laserski izrez so primernejše risbe narejene iz krivulj/črt (vektorska grafika).

Kaj je glavna razlika med vektorsko in rastersko grafiko? Vektorska grafika je narejena iz poti, ki so definiranih z matematičnimi krivuljami in kokordinatami. Rasterska grafika (JPG,PNG,..)pa je sestavljena iz pikic, katere pa laser ne mora uporabljati za izrezovanje. Vektorsko grafiko lahko povečujemo in manjšami pri tem pa ne izgubimo kakovosti. Rasterska grafika pa pri povečevanju izgubi ostrino (robove vidimo kot velike kvadrate.

Za tvorjenje vektorskih risb lahko uporabljamo naslednje programe:

Katere formate uporabiti pri shranjevanju?

dxf- za izreze in graviranje napisov

ai -kadar dxf ni na voljo

svg- kadar dxf in AI ni na voljo

pdf- kadar kombiniraš krivulje in raster

AutoCAD – Shrani kot DXF

  1. Mac version: Text can not be converted to a path for the laser to read.
  2. Windows version: If you use text, fonts must be converted to paths: i) Select the text you would like to explode. ii) Select ‘Express tools > Text explodes’. (Install Express Tools from your original AutoCAD installation file (this plugin usually installs by default) or download it from the Autodesk website).
  3. Save files as DXF.
  4. Use the ‘File > Save as’ command and select the format as AutoCAD ‘2007 DXF file’.

Fusion 360 – shrani kot DXF

  1. .DXF’s can only be exported/saved from a Sketch within a Fusion 360 design. If one does not exist, a sketch will have to be created before the Save as DXF option appears.
  2. If you use text, fonts must be converted to outlines: Right click on the text > ‘Explode Text’ from the drop down menu to create lines for exporting.
  3. Export Sketch as a .DXF by right clicking on the desired sketch in the browser and selecting Save as DXF.
  4. Please note the entire content of a sketch will be exported and regardless of what direction the sketch is constructed in Fusion 360, the DXF output will always be in XY space.

Illustrator – shrani kot EPS ali AI

  1. If you use text, fonts must be converted to outlines: ‘Type > Create Outlines’ from top menu.
  2. Save files as EPS or AI
  3. Use the ‘File > Save as’ command and select the format as ‘Illustrator EPS’ or ‘Illustrator AI’.

CorelDraw – izvozi dxf

Inkscape – shrani kot SVG (ta program je zastonj za uporabo)

  1. Some older versions of this program use an outdated resolution which can cause scaling issues. We recommend you use version 0.92.5 or newer. You can check what version you are using by clicking ‘help > about Inkscape’
  2. If you use text, fonts must be converted to outlines: ‘Path > Object to Path’ from top menu.
  3. Save files as SVG.
  4. Use the ‘File > Save as’ command and select the format as ‘Inkscape SVG’.
