Project parts missing from 2D design export


We are having a problem where parts of the project are missing when exported from 2D design into Lasercut 5.3. Most of the project is there but whole sections can be missing.

Are you able to provide a link to the file? Are you using DXF? What settings are you using to export. Is the missing part of your 2D Design drawing definitely a vector/path, drawn in an RGB colour that lasercut recognises? If you are using colours on your 2D Design, what happens if you change the missing part into a colour that matches the non-missing parts.

More info needed really.

Are the missing bits image files?
If so have you ‘vectorised’ them?

Let us know what your solution is!

Thanks for your reply.

I have spoken to the DT teacher to double check all these. Yes we are using DXF, Yes they are using RGB colour for some parts but it has not made a difference changing the colour as some of the missing parts are already the same colour as parts it has cut.

The DT teacher has been using a different computer suite today and not had the issue when using the same file so it seems to be something isolated to the computers he has been using before. I am going to try rebuilding the suite and see if it happens again.


thanks @jbayliss, when you’ve worked it out, do let us know as it’ll help the next person with this query!

When you say suite, do you mean different software or still 2d-design?
