Design notes

This plywood is constructed from clear face veneer with occasional minor repairs.

Poplar engraves well to produce crisp detail. To determine the optimum engraving depth for your design, we suggest prototyping or purchasing a sample of this material from out sample store.

Plywood Eurolite (Italian Poplar) has a thickness tolerance of +/-15% of the material thickness.

The plywood is cut with the grain running horizontally, and the underside surface protected with transfer tape.

Being a thin and natural material the ply can potentially warp which can affect the flatness of parts. Detailed elements and engraving within P2 and P3 design files require spacing out to avoid material warping and compromising cut quality. check out this blog post for more info on how to design for thin plywood.

Tips from other designers

Jerry says:

The thickness of the 4mm eurolite on separate designs has varied between 3.95mm to 4.63mm and this has caused me some problems with switches that should JUST be proud of the finished face! One half of a mm is not much but sometimes counts!

Could I order the one that have to be around 3.95 to 4.2mm. My design was totally failed last time because the thickness of my material is 4.5mm then all the parts can't connect to each other!
