Can the Laser Cutter


#1

…do something like this display cover:

I guess the tricky bit is the ‘shelf’, can it cut half way through?


#2

Yes, it can, provided the surface finish doesn’t need to be perfectly flat. We’ve done this at work a few times, using the same model machine. You just experiment with speed and power to do a deep etch instead of a cut.

Ah I see, that’s interesting, thank you!!

Thanks for that, @9600. I’ve obviously got more tricks to learn with this laser-cutting lark . . .
