// materials

 

Maximum recommended material thicknesses are as follows:

Marine Plywood: 6.0 mm
Poplar Ply: 18.0 mm
Perspex/ Acrylic: 6.0 mm
MDF: 9.0 mm
Polypropylene: 1.0mm
Card: 6.0mm

We do not cut vinyls and other toxic materials – if you are unsure, please check the MSDS. You will need to drop off your own materials for laser cutting.

// things to note

 

Please leave a minimum 8mm border for your materials if you are laser cutting.

Our bed grid is 10x10mm – any pieces smaller than this will likely fall through when they are cut. We recommend that you leave a small gap that is uncut so that we can also avoid taping (this is especially the case with cardboards, as the tape will remove the surface of the card), and you remove the last part with a knife. Otherwise, we would recommend you bring a polypropelene sheet to act as a tray for your cardboard and so the tiny pieces do not fall through.
