What you have suggested seems to me to work fine. And seems to Inkscape
Can hardly wait to see if the laser cutter agrees with us.
Thanks so much.
It's all so easy ... when you know what you are doing.

This is not really something you can do in Inkscape because its bitmap
trace necessarily traces both sides of each line. However extracting
the jigsaw pattern itself (albeit in bitmap form) is a simple
operation in GIMP:
1 - Create a new layer, white, on top of the image.
2 - Execute a Jigsaw operation on that layer with a Highlight setting
of zero. (a Bevel setting of 0px also works..)
3 - Go to the Layers > Transparency menu and perform a Color To Alpha
using white as transparency.
If you absolutely need the cutting lines in vector form, what would be
ideal here is for the Jigsaw filter to be able to output it as a GIMP
path object instead of painting it onto the target layer but the
plug-in doesn't do that in its current form.
