hi, I’m new to GF, just got mine recently. The Proofgrade materials got lost on the way, so I’m trying to figure out settings for the ones I can get in the UK.
I’m trying to cut thin, 2mm (0,08") black acrylic, but it seems to be melting the sheet. (I have used standard gf settings for medium acrylic.) What settings would you recommend? Should I remove the protective film before glowforging it?
Also is your Acrylic cast or extruded? Cast is a bit easier to work with, extruded melts a bit more. Some acrylics are impregnated with other plastics, as well. Each formulation behaves slightly differently.
