Hello. I am beyond frustrated with not being able to find specific settings for paper products on the boards. Yes, I have found some. I’m very worried about fire/hurting the machine to just start testing myself. I bought the Glowforge to cut paper board products for making models for the theatre designs I do. I’ve had the machine since March and have not used it for that purpose yet. I have been cutting gifts out of the proof grade materials. That’s fine. In the video for the machine, the first thing you see is the globe made of cardboard being made but they don’t even have a proof grade cardboard to use.
Here is my specific question. I use cold press illustration board to make most of my models. I use both white and black board of the same thickness. I’m looking for a beginning setting for safely cutting through this material. I would be happy with even just a couple starting settings that I can start adjusting from. I have made clips for holding down the material. I just need a starting point to go from. Below is an image of the label on my material with the thickness. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If someone actually cuts this type of material often, I would love to talk to you about it.
