Advice on material needed

So I’m getting my Glowforge tomorrow! I’ve read lots of ‘stuff’ and can’t wait to get started. I have a CNC machine so thankfully things sound somewhat familiar:-). I was wondering what i could use that would be similar in opacity as corian? I notice while it can be lasered it’s not good for your machine and i like cutting in it. Any thoughts? I used to use 1/4 inch and cut pretty deep.
Thank you in advance for any help!

I believe that delrin is similar to corian. If you perform a search for delrin, you will find many helpful posts.

Support can’t help you with custom material questions, so I’ve moved this to an appropriate forum section.

There are lots and lots of acrylics out there, that come in all sorts of colors and opacity. There was a thread about this once, let me find it…

Ah here we go, it was @ChristyM :

Maybe something will fit your needs in that thread?


Thank you!!!
