Some plywoods just aren’t laser friendly. The glue, voids and knots will never cut with a laser, and the Aura is pretty challenged by 1/4" material.


Thanks, I didnt know that


If the plywood itself is not to blame you can try many passes at a higher speed, there is diminishing returns however. At extreme need with my pro I first engraved a quarter inch down and then cut after that in order to cut some half inch plywood because it would not cut deeper by cut alone. I have also made as many as a dozen or more passes in order not to melt the Delrin I was trying to engrave.
