I just received my tracking number for my Pro (arriving Friday), and I already have Christmas designs lined up to go straight in after running the first few tests. However one of these Christmas gift ideas is extremely advanced for a new Forge owner. The design, and concept of how to make it work both design and creating the cut file seem easy enough without using the software yet.
On to the design at hand (attached example file for clarification).
I want to, if possible, create a plaque strictly out of acrylics. The plaque would require making an inlay that’s raised rather than flush. I understand that a CNC router could take care of doing the base acrylic but I only have the GF. I’ve searched the forum to see if I could find an example or tips but I’ve only found an original question from 2015 Laser vs CNC for deep cuts. I want to take a piece of PG Black join it with PG Blue in the center and deep cut it, then add a cut inlay of PG Frosted for a raised image. I just didn’t know if acrylic would allow a clean fit when it’s deep cut because of melting, or if it even melts at all?
Sorry I know that probably sounds extremely confusing especially since I can see it in my head and on the design screen, but I don’t know how to explain it the best.
Thanks for any help and happy Forging in the holidays!!
The dashed line on the horizontal would be how deep the inlay would go in.
