After lots of test cuts, SUCCESS!
I was getting a ton of smoke and corners that were not as sharp as I’d like.
I cut this 14 mil stencil material at 160 speed/20 power.
So much lower than I thought, but hardly any noticeable smoke.
I placed a sheet of paper underneath and it worked perfectly to remove most of the cutouts. Only had a couple of tiny bits to poke out
