I was wondering – has anybody found anything gentler than painter’s tape to protect materials going into the laser from smoke damage? I have a few projects I want to work on that involve
Applying painter’s tape to paper is obviously a problem because it doesn’t come off.
With the PETG I can easily remove the painter’s tape after lasering, but the tape is so thick that it messes with the laser settings (and PETG warps like crazy under anything but the lightest power.)
I’m hoping that somebody’s found a contact paper with like a post-it adhesive to it, or a static cling, maybe?
As always, your collective knowledge and expertise is appreciated.
