RE: does thermoplastics laser cutting...

I dont recommend doing so. It will cut but your lungs will get plugged...

RE: does thermoplastics laser cutting...

Sure you can cut thermoplastics but you would need to have the laser cutting center setup with proper ventilation.  Their is a company called Beam Dynamics they manufacture CO2 LMCs....do a Google search.
