I had a fire concern on a run (but it went okay) and I’m still in the realms of left side of laser novice. I just started to extend outside of the proofgrade settings and I realized I’m scared due to inexperience.
Clear Acrylic Cast
I cannot for the life of me find any reference here on the forum or anywhere else of suggested cut settings for 4mm acrylic on a 40W machine. I think I can use the same engrave settings, but don’t know how much to bump the power for that extra millimeter. I know it’s trial and error, but I like to base it on someone’s experience to avoid materials scrap (lost money). Anyone has a guide line when gradually increasing power or speed when increasing thickness after 1/8 (my comfort zone). I want to eventually work with half inch materials.
Also same for 3mm Bamboo plywood (1/8) - which proofgrade would you suggest I start with so I can experiment?
