Scoring acrylic

Hello, is there a way to score the masking on acrylic without it marking the acrylic. I just thought of it right now so I will do the experiments when I get home next week, just wanted to ask so I can get ideas going. Search terms would help too. Thank you

Sure. Just reduce the power. A level of 2-5 will usually leave a discernible mark. Up around 10+ it will start to cut.

You can use either a Cut or Score operation, just as long as you drop the power. (A score is simply a low power cut anyway.)


Thanks for the answer @jamesdhatch, that’s right. For more detail on adjusting power and other settings manually, check out our page on Working With Manual Mode.

I’m going to close this thread - if you have further questions, go ahead and post a new topic.
