New to the forums and have been having trouble trying to cut some 3mm acrylic brooches.
I have a square with a cut out of a word in the middle and i make two copies, in two different colours to swap between them, I would think when I cut that the word would slot into the other piece with no gap but there is a distinct gap around the letters and I don’t know how to fix this. Is it related to the size of the path of the laser? I want the words to fit in snuggly with no line around thin gap around them.
I have a 40W laser cutting at 85% power (high/low).
Please see an example
Do I need to somehow take into account the width of the line the laser makes in the cutting?
