Cutting Clear Acrylic

I see everyone cutting clear acrylic with great results. I bought some and it burns the surface kind of sparks and turns the edges black with out cutting all the way through. I have and 80 watt omtech 3/2021

Are you sure you have Acrylic? That burning & sparking behaviour is often associated with cutting Polycarbonate.

You are right. They gave me the wrong material and all is well now.

I do have another problem though. I have to reverse everything before I burn it or it will be reversed when it is finished. I do’t think it was like this originally. I’ve looked for a setting but can’t seem to locate it.
