    I've made the beginnings of a drag knife TC tool. Curious if anyone else has done this.

    FAQ:
    • How does it work? I dunno. I just have the hardware made right now.
    • Does it replace a 3d printing head? No. It has no connections so I figured I would just send the command to lock while holding it.
    • Why? Because.
    • STLs? Maybe if it works I'll post them.
    • What software? SheetCam (maybe) - not sure what machine to pick in that for Duet.
    • What knife? "EVISWIY Silhouette Blade CB09 Graphtec Holder with Vinyl Fabric Cutting Blades (30/45/60 Degree)" - a whole $16
    • How will you implement it? Maybe have a macro that I call to prepare the machine for drag knife mode?
    • You don't know what you are doing do you? NOPE.

    Like it. I made a felt tip pen holder but never got around to testing that out.

    Very nice. Guess it's also time to make a dial indicator tool ;)
