| | best material for making enclosure for CNC engraver.
Hello, I am looking at building a CNC mill enclosure that can be partially seen through to know things are ok on my mill while it is running a laser engraving head, using both a 445nm high power and the 900mW 405nm lasers for different applications, so I am wondering if there is a source for larger sheets of the same or similar stuff (maybe stronger blocking power for the frequency of photons emitted by these lasers? I don't need to see the beams at all, just the end result of what they are doing on the bed and for possibly filming the work, that again the beam or light from the laser is not needed to be seen (would be best probably if it was totally blocked while letting some other freq of light through to get visual of the material and the cuts or engraving/burnt sections on the material) I have some deep ruby red sheet I use for making goggles with and it stops the 532nm green 200mW laser I have enough that when shining it through the plastic, there is no dot at all, is this something that most would use? (*only details I have is that it is acrylic and that it is designated 2423)
