Laser cutting from 2D

    I normally draw my laser cutter guides in IIllustrator (because it's more accurate and not as clunky) - however today having cut loads and loads of plywood which looked ok - it was all the wrong size - each piece was about a 10cm too large of an oversize of about 100mm. Whya re Illustrator files importing in too large. I'm gutted as I spend an evening drawing up everything and day cutting with realising the problem.

    Any ideas? Very very frustrated!

    I usually use the scale feature to prototype and Quality Check in thick card
    Allows importing of many formats
    We also purchased student licence and give each pupil a copy
    You probably know all this anyway but thought I'd comment
     
  3. was scale to fit ticked?
    We have to constantly remind kids in PS and Illustrator

    just a thought
