    Not really. Bitmaps don't produce as clean engravings as vectors do, plus they scale in size with no lack of detail.

    Haven't you got that the wrong way round? Bitmaps don't scale without interpolation. Vectors scale infinitely, with no loss of detail.

    I was commenting on how you take a vector, convert it to bitmap just to remove the gradient which would cause you problems - if you just removed the gradient from the original vector, you would negate having to do that whole process.

    If you need mixed cutting/engraving, you can solid-fill your vector shape with whatever colour is relevant to your engraving power..
