Photo engrave turned masking into gloppy mess


After finally getting the file to cut, the engrave area turned the masking on this :proofgrade:! acrylic to a gloppy mess (which was very hard to get off as it was almost in a liquid state)

Laser pro, thanks to the forum

Would multiple passes at a lower power work better, allowing it to cool down more?


This is why I have been advocating for removing the mask for photo engravings.


You aren’t supposed to forge underwater.


I remove the masking when I photo engrave acrylic, same issue you see here. A gloopy residue is left otherwise.


Thanks for letting us know @henryhbk!
