We have a 60w CO2 laser. Using a test engrave, we thought that 100 speed with 10% power would be best since the engraving would be on the surface. We used the dish soap technique to avoid the white haze. First layer you almost didn’t see anything so round 2 we didn’t move the plate and went over it with 100 speed and 15% power. This worked well.
But when we put it in our light base, its not the effect I was hoping for. Extra information: this is made with extruded acrylic instead of cast acrylic (I don’t have that laying around here). Could that be it?
Hope to get your ideas on what went wrong!
