Laser 2.0 stencil creation

I am attempting to cut stencils but can not seem to get them to cut
the material is not quite clear and is a bit glossy
any tips?

thank you

Clear and almost-clear materials don’t work well with the laser. Try scribbling over the surface with a black marker to give the laser something to work with.

Just make sure you know what the stencil material is that you’re cutting.
You don’t want to be cutting vinyl or pvc with the laser.
They will release dangerous chlorine gases.


thank you
looks like its a plastic

There’s a decent PDF chart here:

I usually check it before trying anything crazy. Not for the same type of laser, but close enough.
