Convention Costumes and Cosplay

There are many materials that we use to make Props and armor. The most common materials are thermoplastics (Worbla and Wonderflex), I wonder how the glowforge would handle these materials?

Worbla is very solid, but when heated it becomes easily moldable and flimsy. I would be using it to intricate designs and putting them on base arm guards, chest plates, swords, etc. So how would the heat from the laser affect the designs I would want to cut from the worbla or other thermoplastics?

Their FAQ says it cuts great…check out the last question:

For those who want the fast answer – YES, it will cut the Worbla thermoplastics. But reading the FAQ in the post above is definitely recommended.
