Acrylic holds very fine detail - ideal for lithophanes and intricate carvings where the highest resolution is desired. These white acrylic sheets are sold in packs of ten, and are available in two sizes. The 11.8" x 7.9" sheets are for use with the BE3030 Click-N-Carve CNC Carving Machine
, while the 7.32" x 5.31" sheets can be used with either the BE3030
, or the BE2015
. Most other CNC machines will accept both sizes, but check the capacity on your machine. If your carving requires less detail, you can save money by using ABS Plastic Sheets
, (e.g. 49535, sold separately).
A lithophane is an etched or carved piece of artwork on thin acrylic that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source. A lithophane presents a three dimensional image that is much more appealing than two dimensional engravings.
