I am fairly new to glowforge, and I am hoping to have my students use the laser cutter to cut out outlines of their states. They would then add a circuit to the back so we could have LEDs light up the capital, a river, or an attraction.
Ideally, each state will have scrapbook paper on the cardboard (like in the attached picture), but I am worried about my students being able to cut the detailed outlines. Would I be able to glue the scrabook paper onto the cardboard BEFORE doing the laser cutting? Has anyone tried this before?
If so, do you have any recommendations for the settings? Being fairly new, and in a school, I am certainly wanting to avoid any catastrophes!
