I made a couple of short (~2 minute) cuts this evening, starting with proofgrade frosted acrylic followed by proofgrade draftboard. The acrylic had a stronger than usual odor and the draftboard released a ton of smoke.

See the video. Can upload additional photos of specific areas if you like.
Any ideas? I verified that the exhaust tube is clear and my seals appear to be intact. I have already followed the instructions at:
