Layer :

1. layer 0 : cut path, closed polyline in dxf format

4. Engraver_line : Engraving / etching path


Line thickness :

Generic, will be read as hairline in coreldraw. Please maintain it as per your machine requirements.

Suggestion settings :

We create the artwork in generic dxf setting, because not every machine
use same settings. So you must do a bit tweaking according to your machine requirements.

1. Please reorder layer visibility
2. Please maintain / change engraver_line thickness

We know we are far from perfect setting, but we try our best. Please contact for any suggestion.
