=== Preparing and Loading the Material === When cutting acrylic, it's useful to cover the back of the material with masking tape, or to place the material on a piece of sacrificial material such as scrap cardboard, to prevent reflections and other heat from marking it. Sometimes the acrylic already comes with a paper backing. We also can put masking tape on the top, which is especially useful when cutting wood, to prevent smoke stains, but this sometimes requires a slight increase of power to cut through the masking tape, depending on what the settings are for the material.
