2020-03-22 (Su) Electro Knife for Simulated Combat EleKSCo

No matter which material we choose for the electric knives, we will want templates so we can cut a bunch beforehand and apply them at once, or stock spares. I have been using a QCAD trial, and I recently purchased it when I saw that I could use one transaction across multiple computers. I started with a drawing that was straight lines for the bottom and top. Top and bottom relate to the sharp and dull side of a knife blade.
Straight lines were not an accurate representation of the actual dimensions, nor did I think they were, but I needed a starting point. The second iteration used the ARC function, and by coincidence, it fit the American Cutlery knife blade, but it was imperfect for the Cold Steel. In the third revision, I increased the severity of the arc, which was closer but still unusable. The fourth iteration kept the curve on the back of the blade, but I used a SPLINE on the sharp edge, which looked like the most accurate.
Four iterations

I took an old page border from old drawings, probably nabbed from a previous employer, and installed the usable templates. For clarity, I labeled them according to the manufacturer they fit. The document is available in the GitHub repo I show on the bottom of these EleKSCo posts.
