Any suggestions on what I’ve been doing wrong?
I have a 3.8 watt J-Tech laser which works well. I thought I’d try cutting some acrylic, but no matter what I do, I just can’t get it to “cut”.
I’ve adjusted the focus up & down and it’ll melt and leave a mark on both sides, but that’s about it. I’ve changed lenses (I have the precision lens so I changed back to the standard lens) - no different.
I’ve adjusted the power and cut at full power and different settings below that, but again, while it’ll leave a mark, I cannot get any kind of “cutting” to occur.
I’m using semi-transparent acrylic (the green stuff that looks fluorescent on the edges) which doesn’t look too different from the stuff they show on the J-Tech site being cut with their 2.7 watt laser.
Suggestions would be greatly appreciated…
