So here is a method I use to get an idea of where I want to place a design on a piece of material and make sure that it will fit. I am sure there are other methods people use that also work well. Just throwing out what I do.
I was cutting some leather boot cuffs and cut one out and wanted to see if there is space to fit the other. So I set up the material in the glowforge and had the glowforge print a small circle in a spot on the material that I don’t really care about. This is so that I can get some starting coordinates:
^^^ I should have had the top left position coordinate selected for this but of well. I am just getting an estimate.
I then open the glowforge and carefully measure (making sure to not move the leather material) the distance of where the engraved spot is to where I will want the corner of the other boot cuff at.
I then used that measurement to set the top left corner point
And here was the results:
