Help with CNC bits melting acrylic

Hello all! I’m super new to CNC work and am having a problem with my CNC bits melting the acrylic I’m cutting and ruining the whole process. Can someone point out what I’m doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

Feed rate - 150 mm
Plunge rate - 30 mm
Cut depth - 0.5 mm
Overall cut depth - 2.32

Going way too slow to start with. Got to keep speeds up.
But more to it then that:

Gotcha. Thanks so much for the reply. I’ll try increasing the feed rate and I’ll definitely read that article. :smile:

Thank you a lot for sharing this article and I do really learn about the acrylic deeper.

I am going to share this tutorials to anyone who have similar problems.
