As more and more europeans glowforge are arriving to their home, finding materials to cut locally can be an issue. There are many supplyers in the US (including great Proofgrade or Inventables) but many of them don’t ship to Europe or with shipping/taxing cost which make those products unrelevant for our use. If in some times, There will be a proofgrade supplyer in EU, it will be great but for now, how to do?
For example, for me, I have no idea where to find acrylic sheets from a european shop?
So A little thread to share some european supplyers for lasercut materials can be useful for many of us.
I just received my glowforge and for now I don’t have already try many supplyers. I have bought some plywood from major DIY-shops like Leroy Merlin but it seems to be very variable in quality (holes in it, warped). I also try the shop AUPROTEC from Germany in Amazon (I don’t have test it for now) but it looks better.
