These lasers really can do quite a lot of different materials. We have tried cutting ABS before with good results, but we have never documented it in a video. We got a request from a customer to show this with our lasers, so here it is!
The 3.8W laser is a bit faster and needs fewer passes, but the 2.8W laser still does a good job as well.
3.8W Laser: 8 passes @ 225mm/min
2.8W Laser: 12 passes @ 150mm/min
The cut is clean with a nice finish.
ONLY CUT ABS with a FUME HOOD and VENTILATION. It releases cyanide gasses… not good.
