So, take your laser level (you have one, right?)… raise it to the exact height you want to test, i wanted to see exactly where bed height would be in on a skull I plan to engrave.
Now I just need to devise a very precise tiny scissor lift to raise and lower the laser to arbitrary heights, and I can use it to determine real heights of lots of items.
I think there’s some real applications here, and while there are probably more accurate ways to visualize this, I liked the simplicity and direct nature of this method. I’m sure clever forum people will come up with ways to improve this, that’s the beauty of the forum!
Since I used cutoffs as spacers to raise my laser to the correct height, this is almost “made on a Glowforge”, right?
