I believe the vinyl is not safe for lasering. You could make them out of acrylic
Clocks like these look great out of matte black acrylic. Making them from old vinyl records will ruin the Glowforge. Not damage - ruin.
The Glowforge laser is even more susceptible to the corrosive effects than most lasers. The CEO of Glowforge has reported unit failures after a single attempt at cutting PVC.
Now, if you’re asking if anyone has done something like this out of acrylic - then yes! Though a light instead of a clock
That’s a good idea! Thanks
Could someone with the correct rights move this out of the “Made on a Glowforge” category so someone browsing doesn’t see a picture of a cut record and think its ok to do.
Maybe we need a “Don’t make this on a Glowforge!” Category
