Great Carve Materials

I got some materials from Great Carve to test with my lasers. You can check out their web page to see the different materials they offer:

Scratch Acrylic

Scratch acrylic is a piece of thin (1.2 mm) acrylic (~300×240 mm) with one side featuring a coating of difference colors like gold, rose gold, silver etc. It doesn’t take much power and can easily be used with 5W diode lasers. Here is an example:

Two-color leather

This leather features a second color layer that gets revealed when the top layer is removed. You need to do a material test to get the right values to remove the first layer, but not the second.


I combined the two types of material to create some board games for my kids.

Sorry! Game
