Hey guys, so brand new GF parent here making my post debut lol. Loving it so far and having fun figuring things out. Also love what an amazing community has come along with it. So much great inspiration and information to sift through.
As for my question…
I was wondering the best way to go about this. Im making signage letters that need to be 1/4 thick ply. My first idea/test was to glue two full sheets of 1/8 PG ply together (using gorilla wood glue) THEN cutting the letters out of that to get the 1/4 thickness. Its 10 letters and I wanted to avoid having to line and glue them all up individually.
I tried many different variations of speed and multiple passes while changing the focus height along the way. It seems though, the best way I’m able to get through it is with a single pass @ 120/full but I get a lot of char. I was setting the focus height to 0.25. Next I’m going to try just grabbing a piece of already 1/4 ply from the store and just see if its any easier to cut through. I really love the finish of the PG though so thats why I was trying to go the sandwich route.
Figured I’d fish for some ideas from you GF gurus on cutting 1/4 and what settings work best.
