Hi Glowforge fam!
I’m working on an artist collaboration that could hugely benefit from being able to cut/etch “Brushed Aluminum on Black Laserable Acrylic Sheet” from Inventables. I purchased this material in 1/16" (thickest available) but I’m petrified to cut/etch it for some reason (probably because “Aluminum” is in the title and I know the Glowforge cannot cut metal). Can anyone confirm that they have etched/cut this material successfully? And would I use my regular 1/16" settings (200 speed, full power) for cutting?
Thank you so much in advance! I had a bit of a scare recently (tried to cut a much larger acrylic sheet in the GF that was just barely touching the gears… ooof) so I dread any complications!
