Usability of etch in SE

Hi All,

 

Is it just me or is etch completely unusable? We are looking to make a label from two layer plastic which requires the surface to be engraved. We have had good results with SE export using etch, so I thought a bigger label would be easy. However it bogs down so so so very very very badly with text it is basically unusable? Am I doing something wrong or are we just not meant to have any more than a couple of etched lines?

Hi @shanefarra,

 

Not seeing any issues here......etching with either drawn or imported graphics & text, or even a combination.

I'm going to try SP6. Also having a lot of issues with sketches disappearing as well. Not really sure what is going on, but I don't want to spend half a day reconfiguring everything to clear my profile...

What kind of a PC are you running?  Sounds maybe graphics card related...

Hi,

 

After some careful investigation, it would appear that it is the font that I have used to create it that causes the time delay. As for the disappearing sketches, I have absolutely no idea

All I can suggest for the disappearing sketches is maybe check your NVIDIA driver...  Not sure what else it might be.
