First Project, First Design

While I waited for my new machine I have been designing soooooo many things. I am proud that this is the first design and cut project. I am obsessed with this iridescent acrylic.
Here’s to the first of many many more projects!

Very nice! i agree- there are a ton of gorgeous acrylics out there. I got a really nice package of mixed translucents on EBay that had many types I’d never tried and discovered some new favorites.

Welcome to the Forum :slightly_smiling_face:
You might want to do a search around here for various issues and opinions regarding Acrylics and acrylic-like plastic as some work better than others.
I had sone very bad results with some that was heavily mixed with mica flakes that as you might imagine made it tough for the laser to cut through. Also, keep a sharp eye out for even the possibility of vinyl or PVC as the fumes of even one cut can eventually destroy your machine. There is also cast (good) and extruded (not so good) and polycarbonate (not good at all) sheets that all look the same but are very different in a Glowforge.

The logo is stinkin’ cute, and the irrid is eye poppingly gorgeous! I love how clean the design is. I think you will appreciate this YouTube video, if you missed it earlier: DIY Color Changing Holographic Mirror Acrylic Glowforge Project | CRAFT FANATIC - YouTube
It goes into how to make your own irrid acrylic :heart_eyes_cat:
