So I am a classroom teacher, we have to be very careful about fumes and smells in school. I am wanting a cheap, safe AND STRAIGHT material to cut for pretty much all my projects. Some would be painted etc.
The draftboard is perfect, however way to expensive. I have about 500 students. I looked at chipboard that was like 1-2 dollars per 12 x 12" size, which would be amazing, however not sure on safety of lasercutting that.
Is there a material that is straight and very safe to cut thats cheap?
Does cutting all materials pretty much expose us to health risks? For instance I was cutting acrylic, which was great at first, however then the fumes with windows open were just so overpowering. IT seemed to be after I made the cut, fine while i was cutting etc.
I am just very paranoid about fumes and risks… Do I need to seal my glowforge more to eleminate etc. Any good mtl suggestions?
Is MDF super bad to lasercut?
