Tap Plastics in Van Ness has a good selection and also has a decent sized bin of off cuts which are great for testing.

I am currently designing a proof of concept in svg format, and am hoping to try cutting this to gauge how long a more complex design might take, and if the design will be structurally sound. Am I on the right track? Are there any tips I need to know about the file format and content for vector cutting? Is there a good time that i could meet someone at noisebridge to show me how to use the machine and guide me through cutting this first design? Anything else I need to know?
