I really want to experiment with cutting ABS plastic. I realize that ABS plastic is a challenging medium to work with, due to the low melting point, and tendency to distort when heated. Will the Glowforge expose a lot of fine control over the laser cutter to allow me to experiment with differing cutting techniques? (Movement speed, laser power, cut duration, etc)
I realize that you are still probably don’t know the exact specs of the model of laser that will be included in the product, but in general, do you know what kind of temperatures the cutter will operate at?
This would be good info to have, as a material with a flash point lower than that temperature will be on the ‘OMGOMGFYRE!!!111’ list.
