I had a small project I needed to work on for a family member and I ended up needing to use the pass through. My camera alignment, like many others is never in the right place so I thought I would go ahead and create a ruler to help with the placement of the design for cutting as well and to use for manual indexing for the pass through.
The rulers are inspired by @Jules Pro Only - Passthrough Alignment Jig Templates 🤔 and @johnse Passthrough Alignment Tutorial with Manual Indexing. Thanks Jules for the great write up. So here is my little contribution to the wonderful community.
There is a left ruler and two connecting top rulers. This let’s me estimate the horizontal and vertical position of my pieces relative to my cutting bed.
So zero, zero closely corresponds to zero, zero in the GUI.
The right ruler is there mainly for me to align material close to the 19.5 in mark so I can cut close to the edge. ( it is slightly skinner than the left ruler, at least for my GF ).
Either left or right ruler can be used for manual indexing.
These designs have zero kerf and can easily be adjusted.
The rulers are completely numbered unlike the picture of my prototype.
Left and right ruler are the same width, so it will overlap with the cut area.

The SVG has the right ruler adjusted with a smaller width so it can be used for aligning to the edge of the cut area on the right.
