I have done a few tutorials on gridding your glowforge.

This one might be of interest with you because it points out something that you might be overlooking, which is that if you are doing proper cleaning of your machine, the grid you put on the glowforge will likely wipe away. That is why I have the glowforge make a jig of a grid so I can just apply the grid sections I need and re draw them if they wipe away as opposed to drawing the whole grid.

As for this, there are 3D printed parts that snap into your crumb try grooves and are a straight edge.
