Hi all. Just wondering if anyone has any experience cutting High Impact Acrylic with a CO2 laser cutter. Namely, the “Duraplex” brand found at Home Depot. I know it’s not Lexan but, not normal acrylic. They have some 0.093" stuff that might work for a 3D printer build enclosure.
MSDS says it’s just acrylic with some styrene: https://www.acplasticsinc.com/media/Duraplex%20Safety%20Data%20Sheet.pdf
Probably will be fine.
That might be extruded, as opposed to cast, acrylic. I had a lot of problems with crazing and brittleness on the panels I made from extruded acrylic for my Zortrax printer.
