Ideally I would like to get some 1/32 aluminum cut, but I get the reasons why you can’t provide that. Can you cut 1/32 steel? What is the finish like (do you have any pictures?) and how does the rigidity compare with aluminum of the same thickness?
It would be simpler to just use the brushed-aluminum acrylic, but I figure I would have to go with 1/8 and that would require me to rework a lot of the design, which is from a third party.
