    Anyone in VIC have a laser cutter that can cut acrylic? Doesn't need to be thick, it's for an aquarium fish tank lid.

    Dimensions are roughly 400x300x4m

    Happy to send dxf or whatever as required, I hacked the stock one up as we have wood sticking out of it but seems our newly adopted cat likes the aquarium water more than her own so I need to minimise where she can stick her head!

    I think your measurements are not accurate... you either want 4mm thick or to crush your 4m fishtank.

    Ive got access to a glowforge at work that can easily do 300x400x4mm

    yeah, Pro unit.... still waiting for the filter so we have to run it in the garage with the door open

    kinda awesome having a workplace that is big on inventorship.... though the office space allocation seems to get smaller and smaller....

    How's they get it? They aren't shipping to Aus. Did you get an intermediary to forward it?

    Anyone here with a CNC router that can cut the following design? Material to be cut is 380 x 510 x 13mm HDPE.

    Have emailed few a places around Sydney but have not heard back. I suspect the job might be a bit small/easy for them? :confused:

    Are you aware that it's not possible to get 90 degree internal corners with a router? Routers use a spinning tool, internal corners will always have a radius. If you need them to be 90 then you want laser cutting, not routing.
