Well to those who said it could not be done... Used a cheap $400 k40 co2 laser to cut 12mm acrylic and 6mm acrylic parts for my open builds inspired machine. Modded to use Bosch Rexroth extrusions as the other stuff was too expensive to ship. Open builds rollers and spacers. 3D printed Z parts to be installed today. Slides really really smooth. Much better with the open builds rollers than the local made rollers I used on a earlier project. The ability to laser parts in house vs sending out for water jet saved a ton of cash and time.
