This isnít to relevant , but Iíll throw it in here anyways . Itís best not to cut or engrave lexan with a laser.
I knew this but accidentally did it. You canít even comprehend the horrible looking plasma ball of smoke that comes off Lexan, and it damages optics . This is why most companies will not put lexan on their laser engravers .
Itís so strange as plexiglass cuts beautifully with no visible smoke , almost leaves a sweet taste in the air , which I believe the byproduct to be co2 .
For some reason all of our glass shops stock plexi in 1/4Ē thick , but if you want 1/2Ē thick itís always lexan .
No idea why this is . Maybe Iíll ask next time
I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
