I'm having a nightmare trying to figure out the solution to some problems with my illustrator PDF files that are to be imported later to be laser cut in Corel Draw X8 64 (bit) program.
My issues are in the anchor points of my designs. This issue almost always seems to come up with circles, or circular designs. My issues are that most of my circle designs have far too many anchor points, or these nodes that it freaks out Corel Draw's Job Center program, and I'm unable to laser cut these.
To add insult to injury, so many of my designs have duplicate lines layered on top of each other when I go to the pathfinder to 'Divide'. I delete the areas of shapes I don't need, but the ones I use seem to have double lines! Super frustrating. Is it possible to 'merge' any lines that are duplicates, or that are 'stacked' on top of each other? I would assume that these duplicate lines in my designs are also adding to the extra anchors.
I've attached a screenshot of my designs in Illustrator that are later crashing Corel Draw's Job Center program for laser cutting on behalf of too many anchors.
I have just tried to clean up my anchor points with "Mass-remove Bezier Curves in Illustrator" but it severly effects my design to be laser cut. See attached photo.
