I just bought a rather large order of acrylic from Delvie and I’m really having a difficult time cutting through their 1/8" extruded acrylic. I tried using the medium red acrylic proofgrade settings (which is 168/full) and it didn’t come even close to cutting it through. So I lowered the speed to 125/full which KIND of cuts through in some places, but very poorly, its not exactly clean through, its very jagged and rough, the kerf at that speed is just massive so it just blows out any kind of intricate cut like small jump ring holes. I was leaving the paper masking on both sides, which I don’t know if that affects it or not.
Anyone buy from them that can offer up any settings recommendations? If I lower the speed MORE the cuts will just get worse. Should I keep it at the proofgrade settings but do two passes instead? This is driving me crazy because I’m not even trying to cut any sort of crazy shapes, just basic cut shapes in various sizes right now to test it out. This is just the basic colored extruded acrylic so I don’t know why its having such a difficult time cutting!
Thanks in advance!
