The material I want to cut is about 1/8" in thickness, however, the case is part of a shell that stands about 2 1/4" high. Approximate other dimensions are 10" by 11 1/2". Would I still be able to use the laser cutter to cut a logo into the case or is it going to be dremel time?
That should fit into the laser physically. The bed can be lowered a few inches. The only question is what the material is. ABS should be ok, but you need to make sure that there is no chlorine in the plastic before it can be lasered.
Thank you for the speedy response! Poking around reveals that it is made of a "strong, lightweight, durable plastic". More searching around, however, reveals no chlorine in the plastic. Guess I'm going to have to bring it in to be sure. Do you know the types of plexiglass/glass/acrylic that the store carries (if any)
Metrix carries a variety of acrylic plastic in 1/8" thickness. There's also a huge stack of a variety of colors and thicknesses. It's best to go in and see what's available.
