I worked on the Chamfered Acrylic Knife Project at Fremont Laser & Design, our custom fabrication and prototyping shop in Seattle.
@dwardio @ian @wbgraphic this jig is definitely too large for the Glowforge. Our laser here has 10.5" of Z travel so we could accommodate a jig and knife of that size.
@jbv love the idea for the pumpkin carving knife! We could make a jig so it could be cut on both sides to create a double sided serration (at least that’s kind of pumpkin carving knife I grew up using!).
We originally developed the jigging process for chamfering 4 sides of a square of acrylic in order to make a cube. One of our designers David brought up the knife idea, and we just couldn’t help ourselves. It sliced a pretty mean buttermilk fried chicken sandwich today here for lunch
