Cast Acrylic settings for 3mm black cast acrylic

Been cutting a heap of black 3mm acylic lately and these settings give perfect results every time with every piece falling out completely.

This is CAST acylic (to test I burnt a piece and as far as I know cast-crackles and extruded-drips flaming melting plastic)

 

Also found that it is hard to engrave cast acrylic but these setting although slow, work well to give a light etched look (the faster speeds gave more artefacts in the etch)

best setting

 

faster but not as clean an engrave/fill

once these are assembled they are bases for aquacultured coral to grow on, pretty happy with the results

Very cool! Thanks for passing along.

Yes very cool. This is just the reason I am here. To learn about Laser Cutting Plastics.
