Engraving and cutting rubber

Post by Kirsty » Tue Oct 08, 2019 4:06 pm

Hello,
I've just bought an A4 sheet of rubber for laser cutters from Kitronik, and as such I'd like to be able to cut and engrave it without much wastage (it wasn't cheap!).
I basically want to make myself a rubber stamp or two.
Has anyone any recommendations for power and speed to try please?
Any hints are gratefully received, thank you.
Kind regards

Yes send it back :D

I have used it in the past and hated it to be honest - the dust seems to get everywhere! You can get a reasonable image from it but in the end I bought a UV polymer system for making stamps with.

From memory I used to use a highish scan gap setting and make two passes but can't remember the settings ;)

Thank you.
I'll hopefully have a chance to try something out soon (never seem to have the time!).
Fingers crossed, but if not, I know a lady that can make one for me 😆.
Kind regards
