So I got my snapmarks feature turned on (yay!), and want to try it on a passthrough project.
I read the tutorial posts on how to score snapmarks on the workpiece and then slide the piece up. The tutorial was for a butterfly cutout. In the tutorial, the scored snapmarks were on a disposable part of the material, so no big deal. But I want to have the widest possible piece go through the machine and keep the whole thing - the project is to score a large map, hoping to be 20" wide by about 30" tall.
I’d rather not have to rip the final piece to width to cut the snapmarks off, because I think the maximum spacing for the snapmarks is only 16", which would cut out 20%-25% of the final dimensions of the piece. But, I don’t want scored snaps all over the final piece, either.
So I want to just score the snapmarks into the masking layer of the supersize proofgrade piece that I got. Is there a manual score setting that someone can suggest that will be dark enough to work, but not cut through the masking and leave a mark on the finished product? Or should I put some sacrificial patches of additional tape there?
