So there are some amazing things about lasers.... The noise is not always one of the fun bits.. Especially over time... And while they may look like over grown photocopiers they are basically a fire hazard waiting to happen in the wrong hands. Now this is some 15mm @perspex_brand acrylic. Getting the right set of cutting parameters takes some time. But also knowing what the end result needs to be is just as important. I was going for a fully gloss edge, which should never be equated to a diamond polished edge.. As you just cant get that clarity in a laser due to the pulse width frequency of the cut. There are two factors... Penetration time (hehe hehe yes I'm a child) which is the amount of time between the laser turning on and the carriage starting to Move and then the speed at which it moves. Now, if you have too little time on thick material, such as 10 milliseconds between laser on and moving you don't have enough time to punch out the other side and there will be a trailing cut, which often leads to a serrated looking edge about 60% of the way through. This is sub optimal and you need to delay the time to around 50ms before moving carriage and then it cuts clean and free and with a good surface finish. Second thing I find is to adjust the feed slow enough that the acrylic is heated evenly to give a gloss finish with less air pressure on the nozzle to avoid cooling the surface down too quickly and leaving a frosted matt finish. Now  this cut had the film removed from both sides, and was spaced 20mm above the cutting vaccum bed. I find the white films cause flaming which contaminates the edge with soot, which I have never had with the clear film on the Plexiglas material. Have you experienced issues with the white PE film on perspex type materials? Let me know.... Right... Hopefully this has taken less than half an hour for your Sunday science lesson..
