Made of gases
glass,and sometimes plastic
plastic has to be recycled
Can be created on the 2D design software
don't make it big
don't make the outline a different colour because it won't work
cuts with a powerful beam:fire:
use as keyring or something else
Safety features on cutting machine :no_entry:
need to make the design as a silhouette :silhouette:
Will not work if the top is open :no_entry:
Cropped images are useful for laser cutting
Plastic is made from: Polyethylene, polystyrene, and polypropylene. It is often made of carbon and hydrogen and sometimes oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, chlorine, fluorine, phosphorous, or silicon.
Many editing softwares to make designs
The machine cuts green lines
its made from polymer
Technology is getting better everyday
it can be useful to people
Dangerous to the enviroment
Takes millions of years to break down
Plastic is a material made to last forever, yet 33 percent of all plastic - water bottles, bags and straws - are used just once and thrown away. Plastic cannot biodegrade; it breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces.
Toxic chemicals leach out of plastic and are found in the blood and tissue of nearly all of us. Exposure to them is linked to cancers, birth defects, impaired immunity, endocrine disruption and other ailments.
There are thousands of landfills in the United States. Buried beneath each one of them, toxic chemicals from plastics drain out and seep into groundwater, flowing downstream into lakes and rivers.
Chemicals in plastic which give them their rigidity or flexibility (flame retardants, bisphenols, phthalates and other harmful chemicals) are oily poisons that repel water and stick to petroleum-based objects like plastic debris. So, the toxic chemicals that leach out of plastics can accumulate on other plastics. This is a serious concern with increasing amounts of plastic debris accumulating in the world's oceans.
Wildlife become entangled in plastic, they eat it or mistake it for food and feed it to their young, and it is found littered in even extremely remote areas of the Earth. In our oceans alone, plastic debris outweighs zooplankton by a ratio of 36 to1.
Americans discard more than 30 million tons of plastic a year. Only 8 percent gets recycled. The rest ends up in landfills, is burned or becomes litter.
Even plankton, the tiniest creatures in our oceans, are eating microplastics and absorbing their hazardous chemicals. The tiny, broken down pieces of plastic are displacing the algae needed to sustain larger sea life who feed on them.
Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour! ...
Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator.
Americans throw away 25,000,000,000 Styrofoam coffee cups every year.
Over 1,600 businesses are involved in recycling post-consumer plastics.
