PLEASE NOTE: Using the laser cutter is a trial and error process. These settings for the materials are to be used as general guidelines for using the laser cutter. Settings can differ substantially between cut jobs depending on material composition and drawing characteristics. (see FAQs) All backing material must be removed, from the “cut side” of the material, by the user PRIOR to dropping it off at the Media Services room for processing.
NOTE: The Fabrication Workshop reserves the right to reject any material that does not meet the necessary standards for safe and efficient use. We will no longer be processing 1/4" thick plywood on the laser cutters. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If your material is NOT listed below, please contact the Fabrication Workshop prior to use. Specific materials that are NOT accepted include: metal, polycarbonate, Lexan, glass, foam, PVC, HDPE, and PETG.
