Re: [TCML] Primary Support Materials
I've been using polycarbonate for all sorts of Tesla projects. But I live pretty close to those TAP Plastics stores, and I buy chunks out of their scrap bin. You can get a 1'x1' square of 1/2" clear polycarbonate for $2. Of course then you have to slice and drill it yourself. But it's no worse than HDPE. I use one of those plastics drill bits they sell, which works pretty good on everything plastic as long as you use low speed, of course.
