    This is something I CNC cut from shitty 3mm Ali chewing gum ;-)



    I used a 2 flute Aluminium specific cutter with air to clear the chips, run at the right speed it cuts lovely, run it a bit slow and it looks like you're ploughing the material rather than cutting it and leaves 'orrible rough edges

    Again Nice Job and wasn't saying it can't be cut has I've cut ton's of the Stuff and like you say cut correctly with right cutters using good chip clearing a nice finish can be had.!!. . . . But Again cutting Thin Ali less than 3mm like the OP wants with Small dimensions is a pain at the best of times for experienced CNC users but for someone who's never used one or got much machining experience then it's completely different world, One of pain and frustration. . Lol
