One of the interesting things we do with our laser is cut letters and graphics from high density urethane board. We’ve found that we can cut ½-in. Precision Board HDU with great results. It’s the only brand that we’ve cut successfully on our 35-watt laser.

We use HDU board when we want a thicker graphic than the typical 1/8- and ¼-in. acrylic graphics we frequently cut on the laser. We also often use it when we are building a sign to ship elsewhere. A ¼-in. acrylic letter mounted on ¼-in. acrylic spacers can get snapped off during shipping, but the HDU letter is bonded to the surface and will stay put.
