CNC PMMA is suitable for optical and lighting applications. PMMA has good machinability and is an alternative to glass. Various surface finishing options are available for PMMA CNC parts.
|Material||Maximum Printing Size||Standard Lead Time||Tolerance||Color|
|1000*1000*600mm||4 Business Days||0.05/0.1 mm||Translucent, Black, White, Blue, Red, Tan|

Step 1. Convert the CAD file into a language that CNC machines can work with, that's G-code.
Step 2. The operator will place the PMMA workpiece that is cut to a specific size on the machine bed. Then it is time to mount the PMMA workpiece on the machined bed or by a vice.
Step 3. As the computer controls the CNC cutting tools to move to the pre-set coordinates, so precise positioning and alignment of the PMMA workpiece is significant to manufacture high-accuracy parts. Special metrology tools, probes, for instance, are ideal solutions for this step.
Step 4. Then, the PMMA workpiece is ready for machining. The machine uses professional cutting tools and rotating the at high speeds to remove material from the workpiece. However, at the very first steps, the machine removes at a relatively low speed and accuracy to gain an approximate geometry.
Step 5. Sometimes, the model is not being to achieve full features by single setup from the cutting tools, then to flip the PMMA workpiece is necessary.
