When you press print in the app, your Glowforge takes measurements while the software processes the plan for your print. There are several reasons why you could see an error message at this point. The best solution will depend on your design, and may require understanding two terms:
- Bitmap: When you scan a picture or take a digital photo, the software captures it as a bitmap. A bitmap is a type of artwork that is made up of tiny boxes of color called pixels. Photos are bitmaps, and drawings can be too.
- Vector: Vector design starts with two simple ideas: a stroke (which is an outline) and a fill (which is a filled-in shape). Vector designs can include embedded bitmaps.
