Last week I was cutting parts for an acrylic assembly. All parts were arranged to maximize the sheet.
Once finished, the one part I needed for a side piece did not come loose from the acrylic. After removing the top sheet and bottom sheets for protection, the part still did not come free. Upon review the lower surface had not even been cut through. All of the remaining parts fell through the acrylic with little issue.
I did a second project of acrylic coaster, reverse engraving and a through cut for the perimeter.
Out of 8 coasters, 3 were left in the acrylic sheet and did not cut completely through. These were in the top left hand corner close to home position for the head.
The perimeters were ‘snapped’ off to extract the coasters in the end…
This is a hit and miss problem. Some days I am cutting for hours with either wood or acrylic materials. The machine is always warmed up, and made ready. a quick cleaning of the lenses every week.
