    What software package will you use to design trace files? Could we use Adobe illustrator, or Autocad?

      Sam, we are running LaserWorks. You should be able to import .ai and .dxf files but bring some samples and we'll try them out.

    Argh! I have a conflict that night, please tell me you are going to run this again. I would love to cut some plastic on that thing. Will it do polycarb or plexi?

    • Jason H.

      Yes, this will be a regular class from now on. Polycarbonate is a huge no-no on a laser cutter because it tends to catch fire and emits corrosive and deadly chlorine gas. Plexiglass and other acrylics, on the other hand, cut beautifully.

      Sharon, I added a photo of a project we cut out of 1/8" plexiglass. The detail is amazing, and the edges are nice and smooth.
