GREAT resource about the interaction of CO2 Lasers and plastics

I found an extremely useful publication titled “Processing Plastics with CO2Lasers”. It discusses the three points below for all the listed plastics and it has photo examples of how each one cuts. This is one of the best resources about the safety of different material that I’ve seen. Wish I would have found this three years ago when I started!

I’m only getting those two images. Is there supposed to be a link to more info?

Yes, thought I saw this. Way back in 2015.

It’s good info, but I’m not offended if you don’t want to click on it.

Yeah it’s good info, but why the link shortener? Eflyguy’s not wrong, obfuscated links are a sign of sketchiness, pays to be careful. I’ve never heard of rb.gy, I probably wouldn’t have clicked it either.
