I'm about to order some MDF for use with the laser cutter.  Assuming I can get to grips with Fusion 360 I am going to create some router templates.  I am sure this will be documented on the Wiki - not so easy to see my phone.  However, can someone tell me what is the thickest depth of MDF the laser cutter will safely tolerate?

Many thanks

Ronnie

9mm is about the limit, but different mdf has different properties so it’s not an exact science.

Hi Tony

I have been working on sketching a diagram using Fusion 360 and wondered if you are around at anytime this week so that I might pick you brains?  I can pretty much do anytime to suit you.
Best wishes

Ronnie
