Dear Lightburn Community,
we´re struggling to find the best solution for engraving acrylics.
When engraving acrylic plates, there is so much steam/dust/rub off - we have to polish each plate for ages to receive a crystal clear result.
I saw a lot of videos, where people don´t remove the foil to prevent exactly this problem, but with this method, there are a lot of designs where it´s a pain to remove the engraved foil.
What we´ve tryed:
Without foil onto the acrylics:
- Using water /w soap
- Using a polish machine with polish paste
With foil onto the acrylics:
- Try to grap the foil with a duct tape
- Put the acyrlic plate into an oven (to heat up the foil)
2.1 Try to grap the foil with heat resitant tape
- Try to use water w/ soap
Every solution “with foil” sadly dosn´t work, the solution without foil works out but takes ages. What is your solution for a time effective result when you are working with engraved acylics?
Attached are some photos.
