Drag Knife set up

Hello Everyone,

Wanted to see if anyone had tips, tricks, and advise on setting up and using a drag knife with the smart bench?

If you haven't already, please see our Vinyl Cutting blog post here in which we use a dragknife:


We used contact adhesive spray to hold down our vinyl sheet
We designed and used a 3D printed part to hold the drag knife in place

What are you thinking of for a drag knife project?

I have some carbon fiber print vinyl I want to use to cover the sides of an arcade cabinet I designed and figured the smartbench cut the side panels would work to cut the vinyl as well.

That's a great idea. Do you have access to a 3D printer? We'd be happy to share the file for the adaptor we proto-typed - we used it successfully for the project I shared the link for however haven't developed it for resale yet.
