I’m ready to do some prototyping on cardboard now. A couple of months ago we got a bunch of IKEA furniture and the boxes have been sitting in a corner with the promise of some day being used in the glowforge. But they were huge boxes that we difficult to move or store. I looked online and found the Worx ZipSnip (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019CSHSW8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_Mc-GybX8SE4TD) for $30 so I ordered one, and tore the boxes apart today.
This thing is awesome if you’re cutting any material that’s not too thick. I haven’t tried it on fabric yet but I expect it’d do just fine.
