Like many of you, I’ve found the honeycomb hold-down pins designed by @eljefe4 to be endlessly helpful. However, there are times when I want a pin right dead-center in the bed, or otherwise in a position where one of the y-axis supports under the honeycomb is in the way. So I utilized aspects of a version created by @DesignsByPhil and made two types of straddling pins: Big Straddler and Lil’ Straddler.
I cut these on medium draftboard, but would love to hear what materials work best for others. For cutting, I tweaked the Proofgrade cut slightly by taking the power from full down to 100 and giving it two passes (183/100/2x). I find this is guaranteed to cut through completely, but less likely to cause charring/brittle points.
For the engravings, I kept the letters in vector format and went with 1000/65/1x for zooms/pews/passes. If you decide to rasterize and use vary power, a similar depth can be achieved on draftboard with color hex code #8c8c8c.
Hope others find these helpful!
