Finally cutting something out

Built the enclosure, and hooked up fume extraction and air assist…

This is cutting 1/8″ plastic – everything seems to work just fine – 3 passes and the pieces just drop right out. The cutting residue washes off with soap and water.

UPDATE : I was looking for tips on identifying laser safe plastics and found the following video:

Polymer Identification by Burnination from Zach 'Iowa' Hoeken on Vimeo.

…and this technique can also be used to identify if you’ve been taken over by “The Thing”.
