Hey everyone!

A quick and highly requested episode for you guys! Everyone has been asking me how to create custom outlines of weird items for engravings, so we’re going to tackle this together. We’ll create custom outlines in both Adobe Illustrator AND Lightburn, and the outlines we create will work in Lightburn OR Ezcad. Very easy and super quick. Hope it helps!

WARNING: Do your own research before purchasing your machine. I have done extensive research before making my purchases and spoken at length with the manufacturers before placing my order to be absolutely sure what I was getting could be imported, would work with my electrical setup and performed the tasks I wanted to perform.

Always test your settings on your laser before working on items in a professional capacity.
