one of the ways that I considered approaching this for my Catan Box (12.5x12.5), was to turn it 45 degrees and only do two sides at once. Then flip it and cut out the other two sides.
- Cut out a square of your material at 11.5x11.5 using your table saw
- In your laser, cut a 90 degree corner facing up that you can slide the square into (FIRMLY HOLD THIS PART IN THE LASER SO IT WON’T MOVE)
- After removing the waste part, slide in your square, line up the cuts with the 90 degree corner you made earlier (either design these to parts in the same file and ignore one part or another, or use add artwork to bring it in)
- Cut the first two sides, turn the board 180 degrees and then cut out the last two sides.
The problem I had with this was that my machine just wasn’t accurate enough at the time to make the two cuts meet at the same place. I believe that with recent updates, the accuracy just might be close enough to do this now.
(Just sharing an idea about how you can make this work)
