Posterboard Settings



I have a client who needs to test designs for a packing insert. I used heavy posterboard, 0.45 mm (0.018 in), white color, bought from Michael’s. The settings that seemed to work the best for a 50% depth score and a good clean cut were:
Score: Speed 500 Power 15
Cut: Speed 250 Power 40
I haven’t tried a lot of other settings for cutting; I found this one while trying scores.
Etching seems to work well at 1000 speed and 10 power at 240 LPI.
Masking does not seem to be required for these settings.
