5. F.A.Q

how to cut/engrave metallic acrylic sheets

1. Carbon dioxide laser for special-shaped cutting

Laser cutting can be used to cut acrylic mirrors of any shape while minimizing material waste. Laser cutting work by focusing a large amount of energy on a small, confined area, which then melts and vaporizes the material. It should be noted that the speed and light intensity must be well matched when cutting.

2. cutting machine or chainsaw for straight line cutting

It is generally used to achieve precise straight-line cutting of one or more acrylic mirror sheets. When cutting the material with the mirror side down, you should keep a protective film between each two sheets, this will protect the paint back coating during the cutting process. If you only need to cut straight, this method is the fastest and cheaper.

3. CNC engraving and special-shaped cutting

Similar to laser cutting, it can cut the acrylic sheet according to the input graphics, but the cutting accuracy and effect are not as good as that of laser cutting. And more acrylic chips are produced during cutting, which wastes more material than other cutting methods.


4. Manual hook knife and line cutting

In the absence of equipment, you can use a manual hook knife to mark the line to be cut on the acrylic mirrors, draw back and forth a few times. Then place one side on the desktop, one side hang in the air, the acrylic mirrors can be broken by hand along the scratches. If you want the edges to be neat, you can use sandpaper to polish the edges.



How to cut metallic acrylic sheets with glowforge

Reflectivity is highly dependent on wavelength. Per Glowforge, mirrored acrylic is opaque to the laser and non-reflective. However, copper, brass, and to a lesser extent silver, are all highly IR reflective and should not be used in the laser without surface treatment to prevent reflections back into the head.

Mirrored acrylic doesn’t need to by masked or cut in a certain orientation to protect the laser.
