There are a wide range of materials that the Laser Cutter can cut, etch or mark - but some simply don't work (eg metals) and some are extremely hazardous to either humans or the machine itself (eg PVC). It is therefore imperative that you check these lists before attempting to cut materials that you have not worked with before.
These settings should serve as a starting point for experimentation - they might work as-is, or they might save you time and get you close to what works well for your material. Keep in mind that different material thickness, laser focus, dirty optics, etc. will affect the required settings for a certain material.
|Clear acrylic||Cut||0.118" (sometimes labeled 1/8")||100%||2%||500||Remove top backing or FIRE. Cast acrylic may cut more slowly. Beware thickness variation.|
|Clear acrylic||Raster||0.118" (sometimes labeled 1/8")||60%||40%||1000||Vary power/speed for desired raster depth.|
