I wasn't sure who to contact so I thought I'd throw it out in the
open. Does anyone know who owns the thicker (1/2" or so) pieces of
plexi that are on the table in the Fab Lab? I had wanted to attempt
something with the laser that would require the thicker stock but
didn't want to just go and use someone else's project stock.
I believe Tye donated them. Afaik they are up for grabs.
Also, I believe most of that is actually Lexan, so no good in the laser cutter.
Why wouldn't Lexan work? It is a plastic.
Alexander is a polycarbonite and it puts off hydrochloric acid fumes. That being said I dripped off a sheet of 5/8 to 1/2 in acrylic it is available for anyone’s use. It has a blue layer of plastic coating rather that the lexan labeling. Have fun!
Certain plastics produce toxic and// or corrosive fumes, lexan produces hydrochloric gas.
Addendum to this thread. Ordered some of the "pro" acrylic adhesive
for projects along with a set of polypropylene syringes for
application. It's in the dirty room on the hazmat shelf. Pls feel
free to help yourself but do be careful, it's methyl chloride.
