How do I (RESOLVED)
« on: October 22, 2017, 08:16:34 AM »
I've not used BCL for anything but cutting so far,  can somebody tell me how I get not just the polylines on the attached engraved but also infill the center of the figures so they are uniformly black rather than just outlines?

Thanks,
Rick.

well you need a hatch fill.  If you made the dxf with inkscape you can do it with the eggbot plug in.

additionally you could do a fill and convert the thing to an image.  BCL now allows engraving so a picture (png jpg bmp) would probably work.

You could fill it, but it would take a long time to burn in the fill.

Thanks all, I guess I will have to find another way of doing this.
