What is your record for

What’s your record for the thinest feature cut on your Glowforge?

While making this personalized cake topper I was truly amazed at the result. The thinnest width of the flowered filigree mic’s out at 0.005" !

I didn’t intend to make such a thin feature but the GF did not disappoint



That’s lovely…and so delicate. I’ve never measured any of the very thin stuff, but I’ve sure had a few. Mostly, that happens to me by accident, like last night I neglected to change a cut to a score and ended up with several of the most delicate rings of wood I could imagine. At least when it’s intended, its a stunning achievement. :slightly_smiling_face:

Beautiful! I’ve done a few acrylic cake toppers … The fonts can be sooooooo thin! It is always impressive!

That is 1/200th of an inch !?
Never tried anything super thin with plastic because I figured it would just slag//melt.
Plastic apparently is a forgiving medium.

Picture below was a tower I made using wood. Anything lower than 0.015 (1/64th or 3/200th) just wanted to turn to ash when touched. Thought about doing the cuts alternately to avoid the char heat, then cut to the chase and said Thin Enough.

Some so thin I would not even try to mic them.
