Im a brand new glowforge owner. what do I use for setting to cut out words on 1/2 inch thick plywood? I have been trying all morning and no luck! any help would be appreciated! TIA!
Half inch thick is probably too thick. (The Pro and Plus machines can cut it, but it takes multiple passes at very slow speeds, lots of charring, fairly high potential for fire or lens damage.)
Had you considered cutting it out of two sheets of 1/4" and then gluing those together?
Best way to incorporate the glowforge into cutting half inch and above is to use it to cut a template.
