Task for Today

  • Design something that you want to cut that fits inside a 10cm x 10cm square
  • Use outlines for things you want cut out
  • Use fills for parts of your desing that you want engraved.
  • Only use very small filled areas. Engraving can take a long time.
  • If you can’t think of anything, make a coaster with some text.
  • Export your file as a PDF, SVG or EPS
  • Cut out your piece.
