Gold Acrylic on the laser

Post by mickb » Tue 18 Mar , 2014 15:41 pm

I recently asked if I could cut brass on my versalaser 4.60 and was told no :cry:

So, when asked if I could make something with gold or silver acrylic I thought I better seek the oracle before proceeding ...

Any comments guys ?

Is it safe and will it work ?

Thanks

Hi,

Its the material that cannot be cut nothing to do with the colour. However if using mirrored perspex or other materials always cut from the non reflective side.
