Carver/engraver alignment tool


#1

I just designed this tool to help in squaring up the carver/engraver medium to the print axes. I hope someone finds it useful.

Bravo @TheBum

Well done, I will have a go at this in the weeks ahead. I was about to design something basic myself.

I also suggested that the Snapmaker base plate could benefit from having a grid pattern on it, whether it be a light etching or a decal to assist with setting up projects.

I’m probably going to design a smaller version that omits the outermost holes. It will be printable in one piece on the Snapmaker and will work better if you’re carving something with a fence around the platform.


#4

Smaller version is done and has been added to the Thing.


#5

A vice version of this would be awesome! With different measurements marked on it or something :slight_smile:

I’ll try to get working on one :smiley:

I have made this, works very well :slight_smile:


#7

Can you share a photo pf how this would work with a smaller/bigger piece? I am guessing the multiple holes is to allow for different sizes (not thickness)


#8

I did, on the Thingiverse page. The first photo is a thinner piece and the second is a thicker piece.
