Rastering

Postby GervRich » Sun Jul 15, 2018 3:38 pm

Hello All,

I was looking for some insight on how to use the Next Wave Automation Raster 3.0. I open the program and load the image. How do I save it and then upload it to vcarve pro so i can use a laser to try and laser the image.

I tried saving it and then opening it as a bitmap but it does not show up in the saved area. What I need to do is be able to save it as a laser file.

Thanks
GervRich

Opening or importing ? If you are working within Vcarve then you would be best using the import bitmap function :lol: :lol:

That program creates code that is meant to be loaded and cut directly on your machine not loaded into VCarve as far as I can see.

If it does have an option to save the file as a bitmap rather than just a TAP file then you would need to import the bitmap as Martin says.

Thanks for the response. It only saves it as a Tap file. I will try what you guys say and load it right to the machine. Thanks again
