I am trying to Cut a piece of 3mm White opaugue cast acrylic. it cut the Red one fine with Speed = 3, Power = 100 and Pass= 3… I do not know why it is not even scoring the White. I used the Material sheeting off of xTool’s website for acrylic.
Are there certain settings depending on the color of the acrylic? If so, can you let me know what they are please?
When choosing acrylic for laser cutting, consider the color and thickness. A CO2 laser cutter can cut acrylic of any color, while a diode laser can only cut some dark opaque acrylic. The thickness of the acrylic is also important. Depending on your laser cutting machine’s power, select a suitable thickness. A 20W diode laser can efficiently cut up to 8mm thick acrylic in one pass. CO2 lasers, being more powerful, can cut most commonly available acrylic sheets.
