Hi all, just a question I'm not sure anyone can answer, but I´ll try :-) 

I'm working on a design in Designer, for something that will be laser engraved.. The client said they needed the file in .SVG when it's done. I guess they need the .SVG file to program into the laser engraving machine.. 

Does anyone know if I have to expand all the lines, to be laser engraved, or can they be like un expanded vector lines. Will the laser engraver understand that all that is black will be cut out? 

Or is there anything else I have to think about.. The client knows that I don't know much about laser engravers, but he said only he needed the file is .SVG

 

Any tips or ideas? :-) Here is a little screenshot part of the design I'm working on..

Ask the client to send an .SVG he/she has used successfully for you to reverse engineer, well look at, something similar to what you are doing now if possible. 

With SVG, the code generated by the exporter might be important because you can have the same vector image but with different code.
