Hey all! Apologies in advance for the noob question . . .
Tomorrow I’ll get the Glowforge turned on and set up and can start using it but haven’t yet. I have to trim down a bunch of 1/8" thick acrylic sheets that are 1/8" longer and wider than they need to be.
I want the Glowforge to trim exactly 1/8" off the long and the short edge of one side of the acrylic but I am concerned that there isn’t a way to line up the material to do this cut the way I’d approach if it I were doing it on a table saw for example with a fence.
What is the best way to perform this cut with the Glowforge? Will the software show me the current angle of the material (since I assume absolute parallel with the machine is impossible without a fence) and give me some way to draw a line and cut?
I know its a silly question but I haven’t ever had to think about how the Glowforge would align and cut from the edge of a sheet of material and hold that same angle to cut away the thickness uniformly knowing it could be at any angle on the crumb tray.
Thank you in advance for your help all!
