i’m interested in your custom laser cutting service. On your website when you talk about the material thickness of ABS and Acrylic, you state that the thickness in inches is only nominal and the actual thickness is in Millimeters. So what is the actual thickness in Millimeters for the different inch-sizes? I would assume: 1/16" -> 1.5 mm, 1/8" -> 3 mm, 3/16" -> 5 mm, 1/4" -> 6 mm, 3/8" -> 10 mm and 1/2" -> 12 mm. Am i correct with these numbers and with the assumption that for an actual design one should rather work with these numbers than with the inch-values?
I’m planing to use some interlock features to build a 3D-case out of lasered sheets of Acrylic or ABS. The slots and corresponding tabs woudn’t have to fit absolutely tight, because the design will be glued together in the end. What slot width (in relation to material thickness) should one use for a particular material (ABS or Acrylic) and thickness, so that the tab fits in the slot in any case (even considering the thickness variation of a particular material). As said above, it doesn’t need to fit very tightly, it’s more important that it actually fits inside the slot.
Many thanks and best regards
