LightBurn Fill & EZCAD Hatch Quick Translation¶
If you're coming from EZCAD and having trouble finding hatch settings you're used to, please see below for a guide to matching your usual hatch settings to LightBurn's fill settings.
If you're not sure how to adjust cut & engraving settings, please see the Cut Settings Editor page.
EZCAD2's "Mark Contour" option can be replicated with LightBurn's sub-layers. By creating a line sub-layer and a fill sub-layer, you can achieve the same effect. To cut the contour first, have the line sub-layer as the first sub-layer. To fill first, have the fill sub-layer as the first sub-layer.
Hatch 1, Hatch 2, Hatch 3¶
EZCAD2 allows for three different hatches on the same geometry. This is equivalent to LightBurn's sub-layers. Please see the relevant page for help.
This functionality is the same between the two programs, and is a checkbox in both.
Unidirectional hatch & Bidirectional hatch¶
Ring-like hatch / Pyramid Hatch¶
EZCAD2's ring-like hatch is equivalent to LightBurn's Offset Fill.
Snake hatch is equivalent to a regular fill in LightBurn with Flood Fill enabled.
Auto Rotate Hatch Angle¶
In LightBurn, the EZCAD2 feature of "auto rotate hatch angle" is labeled as "Angle Increment" in your layer / sub-layer settings. While not a fill mode, it's still relevant to replicating EZCAD2 fill styles.
