Design NotesMylar is a temperature stable, moisture resistant thin sheet material. It is crystal clear transparent.
Mylar laser cuts very well, down to very delicate detail.
Small light pieces can shift or get sucked into exhaust during cutting, so provisions need to be made for this at the design stage. Small parts may need to be tabbed into a larger piece.
Engraving MylarBecause mylar is such a thin material, any engraving will compromise its structure, and the mylar will snap along any straight engraving line if pressure is applied.
Line engraving is the only engraving type for this material.
Line engraving is like a really shallow cut. To achieve this effect the stroke color to red with RGB values of 255, 0, 0 and set the stroke style to a width of 0.01 mm. The laser beam follows along the red lines that you have in your design and marks the surface of the material. The result is crisp but it can be a time consuming technique if you have a lot of small details like text.
