Hello! I want to print a fuel dipstick for my friends antique car. Basically a two sided ruler. Want to put empty, 1/4, 1/2 , 3/4 and FULL on one side. And gallon marks on the other.
I know one side will print correct on the first print, but how do I get the second side to print accurately? Do I need to make a jig so it goes in the same place on the bed? Or will the cameras be accurate enough to pull it off?
Design it so that it is symmetrical. There will basically be 3 layers (in different colors): a cut layer, a front engrave, and a back engrave. Line them all up and save the SVG.
Load the SVG, and do the settings for the cut and one of the engrave sides. Ignore the engrave on the reverse.
Cut it out, leave the base material in place without moving it and pull the cut piece out. Flip it and put it in the hole left behind and then engrave the reverse side (and ignore the cut and the engrave that was already done).
