Does anyone know the best type of plastic material used for image relief, and a good source in the US?

Enter as much information about your CNC hardware and software as you can - it makes it easier for everyone to know what you're talking about then.

I've used these before (in error really as I didn't realise they were in the states :oops: )
They always seem to have lots of quality acrylic pieces that have been left over from jobs at good prices

Try them out:

You need to be looking for CAST Acrylic, which cuts pictures better than extruded acrylic. Go for 3mm or 1/8th inch thickness
The stuff I got from FRIGO had a brand name of Lucite - maybe something to search the internet for
